Kim K. Gets 600K To Party
She's still worth $600,000 a night! Kim Kardashian set to rake in the big bucks for hosting New Year's Eve partyHer popularity may have waned in recent weeks following her failed 72 day marriage to former husband Kris Humphries.
But Kim Kardashian is still apparently very bankable, and is set to rake in the big bucks for hosting an upcoming New Year's Eve party.
The 31-year-old reality star is reportedly being paid $600,000 to help ring in the New Year at Tao nightclub in Las Vegas this weekend, according to RadarOnline.
But Kim will have to do a little more work than just one night, because the large wad of cash is part of a multi-event deal.
Kim is not the only one getting paid a pretty penny for their hosting duties.
Vegas regular and former Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie will earn a cool $100,000 for performing at new nightclub 1Oak at the Mirage Hotel and Casino, according to The New York Post.
But other celebrities aren't so lucky.
A whole slew of other stars were reportedly in talks for deals, but many of them fell through because the A-listers were demanding too much money for appearances.
According to a source that told the Post, Katy Perry failed to fetch the $250,000 price tag she demanded to play for one night.
P. Diddy was apparently close to signing a deal with Hyde nightclub in Miami, but after they didn't meet his expectations, he rejected their offer.
Meanwhile huge money sums have reportedly been thrown at Ashton Kutcher.
But the Two And A Half Men star, who recently split from his wife Demi Moore following allegations of cheating, has allegedly turned them all down.
She may be a new mother of twins, but Mariah Carey was said to be keen to perform on the big night.
But after her people search the globe for a $500,000 deal, they didn't find any takers.
'She’s not doing any New Year events. She’ll be in Aspen with her family,' he rep told The Post.
Kim's hefty deal comes after her popularity suffered a huge blow following her short-lived marriage to ex-husband Humphires.
Many accused the reality star of using the marriage as a publicity stunt and a way to cash in through TV rights and magazine deals.
And her popularity seemingly took another dip last week after animal rights group PETA launched a billboard campaign slating the star's love of fur coats.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians favourite has regularly been spotted wearing such jackets this year, despite already being chastened by the group, who named her their worst dressed person of 2010.
And in the emotive ad the group has a cute picture of two fox cubs, with the statement: 'Kim These babies miss their mother. Is she on your back.'
In addition to the adverts, he animal rights organisation has also Kim on their website.
PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange said: 'Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive.
'We've explained it to her, and she's watched a video expose that was filmed inside fur farms.
'When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless.'
Ironically Kim turned out to support a PETA campaign poster AGAINST fur which featured her sister Khloe earlier this year.
She posed with her sister next to the 2008 Fur? I'd Rather Go Naked picture in 2008, after her younger sibling stripped off for the charity.
It is the second time in recent days the Kardashians have been involved in a fashion flare-up.
It was claimed the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights had criticised the family for using Chinese sweatshop labour to produce their fashion lines.
He did speak out again last night to say: 'If Ms. Kardashian has found a way to overcome the iron-fisted repression under which the Chinese workers are forced to toil, then that would be huge news and worthy of tremendous applause. Kim Kardashian $600,000
'But unfortunately, based on our concrete experiences investigating factories in China and elsewhere, the chances are about one in a million that Ms. Kardashian has found a way to push back against the Chinese authorities and guarantee that her employees will be afforded their most basic, internationally recognized workers' rights.'
