Kris Jenner has been at the center of plenty of gossip lately, and the accusations and drama show no signs of slowing down!

The Kardashian matriarch has faced multiple claims of abuse, plenty of divorce rumors, and now In Touch weekly is reporting that Kris paid her ex-lover, Todd Waterman, thousands of dollars to keep quiet about their affair.

“Todd knows where the bodies are buried, so to speak, when it comes to Kris, Bruce, Robert and the girls,” an insider close to the family tells the mag.

So how did Kris respond to the threat? “In typical Kris Jenner fashion, she brought out the checkbook.”

“Last year, she persuaded him to appear on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. It was her way of paying him off and making sure he stayed silent about their torrid past,” an insider close to the family says.

Normally, someone is paid about $1,500 to appear on the show, but the insider believes Todd was paid between $15,000 and $20,000.

Kris and Todd’s connection is already public knowledge: She admitted to cheating on Robert with Todd, but maintains that the affair stopped as soon as she married Bruce.

Not so, In Touch’s insider says! “He was always around, and Bruce was completely in the dark. He was the Camilla in the Charles-Diana relationship.”

In Touch says Todd gladly opened up to them about the relationship before, but he’s now become suddenly silent.

So there you have it. Do you believe the payout claims, or does this all sound like someone has a vendetta against Kris? (Or perhaps... both?)
