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.

Let's see. Divide that number by 8. Take out half for taxes and another 30 percent for PR and agents and spread that out over three years. It's not that much.

Lets do the math here:
$40,000,000 divided by 5 people = $8,000,000 ea (The 3 sisters, Mom and Bruce)
$8,000,000 ea divided by 3 seasons = $2,666,666 per person, per season.
Sound like E got the better deal. Can Kim live off of $2.6 MM per season before taxes?

Hope in the next few years Rob will finally get a job. Koutney will finally marry somebody. Kim will have another sex tape lol, that's all she is good for and Lamar will finally leave that man they call Khloe.

Only the Kardashian's would announce the price they sold their souls to the devil for, to the media to get more attention.

Might not have be worth the price when they get to the Pearly Gates.

OK so when Khloe divorces Lamar because he is no longer a sport figure and will need to glom off her for everything, and it Kim loses big in her divorce to kris, West leaves her once she is prego E will finally see that they just wasted $40 million. So in short before the summer this deal will be seen by E as a huge mistake.

What a waste of money. No wonder our country is going to sh*t. Big money never circulates further than the pockets of people who all ready have it. The rich keep getting richer and for what? Getting dumber as they grow older. Hey, I'll play an idiot on TV for 40 Million, sign me up!
