2:04 PM PST -- Sources connected to  the deal tell TMZ ... Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kris and Bruce will get the lion's share of the money ... and they are each getting equal pay.

We're told Kendall, Kylie and Rob are on a lower pay grade -- and will be paid equally as well.

Scott Disick and his son Mason have a separate deal. Ditto for Lamar ... who hammered out a package deal to appear in both "Khloe and Lamar" and "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

We're told the new deal ONLY includes existing shows -- so if Kim and Kanye get a new spinoff show ... they will have to bang out a new contract for even MORE money.

The Kardashian family has just signed on for 3 more seasons with E!, and it's the richest deal ever in reality TV ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected with the deal tell us, the family will get more than $40 million for 3 more seasons of "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."  

The 6th season of the show averaged 3 million viewers. The 7th season begins airing May 20.

Our sources say the $40-plus million deal does not include product endorsements and other items associated with the show that Kim, Kris and the rest of the brood are able to hock.

There are people all over the world who need money for medical treatment, food, shelter that are suffering and these guys get this much money to do what? Buy more stuff for themselves. Sad to say it but there are hundreds of thousands of people who deserve this money more than these people.

Very hard to believe! Apparently, they are mildly entertaining to a certain segment. Seriously, the Khloe/Lamar segments were incredibly BORING!Some people watch out of curiosity or have nothing better to do. $40 million? RIDICULOUS!!! No value for the money~

Kim disgraced the word marriage in front of MILLIONS of her fans...does E! really think people are going to just turn the other cheek? I did watch it, I won't lie, but I'll be sure as sh*t taking that crap off my DVR tonight.

This is absolutely ridiculous! . . . Until people (viewers) speak up against these networks and say we deserve better, they are going to keep dumping this BS on viewers. Just think, reality tv airheads are being made millionaires and so called 'stars' due to people not standing up for better.

LA you're on the line    

Please, America. Boycott this kind of trash. TV is becoming nothing but a bunch of fake reality programming. Unless WE quit watching, and not support the sponsors, it will continue. I don't begrudge the Kardashians for taking advantage of our stupidity, but it has to stop NOW.

Less than 1 percent of the population watches this show and they get $40 million for another three years. This just shows you how you can sell anything to idiots in this country.
