This weekend brought the highly anticipated wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries, in which no expense was spared on the lavish event. But according to insiders, The Keeping Up With The Kardashian star’s mom, Kris Jenner wanted The Voice‘s Christina Aguilera to perform at the reception, but why didn’t Christina perform? Believe it or not, it was a matter of money!
Money? The Kardashians? I know you are thinking that we must be kidding, but we are not! According to an insider close to Kris Jenner, Kris originally wanted a big name performer like Christina Aguilera or Jennifer Lopez to perform at the wedding, but there was one problem – she was not willing to pay! With private concerts by both of the singers costing around $1 million, Kris opted not to go with Christina Aguilera or Jennifer Lopez, as she told friends she refused to compensate that much for their time. Seriously? Did she expect either of those talented women to perform for free?
The whole idea of Kris Jenner refusing to spend that much seems ridiculous. After all, we know Kim Kardashian wore not one, but three custom made wedding gowns, the couple had a $20,000.00 cake, and dinner prepared by Wolfgang Puck, but she couldn’t spare for Christina Aguilera? Instead, the wedding guests were treated to a DJ and Earth, Wind and Fire – don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that, but being that this was the so called “wedding of the year,” we would have thought she would have gotten a bigger name, more age appropriate act for Kim Kardashian and Kris Humpries’ big day.
Do you think Kris Jenner should have splurged on Christina Aguilera or Jennifer Lopez for her daughter’s big day? Kudos to Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Lopez for not performing at the wedding for free, the family surely has enough money to spare!
