A member of the Kardashian family is blamed for killing a potential Kardashian fanzine, reports the New York Post’s Page Six. According to the story, matriarch Kris Jenner’s demand for absolute control doomed the American Media deal.
The publisher, the parent of magazines such as Radar Online and the National Enquirer, wanted to create a magazine devoted to everything Kardashian, the story notes. Jenner, however, reportedly wanted editorial approval over every American Media publication to make sure they would give the Kardashians positive coverage, according to the piece.
American Media balked at the request, and the deal came to an end when Star, one of its publications, reported that Jenner’s ex-husband, Robert Kardashian, wasn’t the biological father of Khloe Kardashian, the story notes.
American Media declined to comment, while a representative for Jenner said she never had a conversation with the company about her alleged demands, the story notes. The rep said the allegations in the Star article are "completely fabricated."
