Rumors have been swirling of a split between unlucky-in-love-lately Khloe Kardashian and rapper French Montana. The reason behind the summer fling's sudden breakup? Not only was French Montana's loyalty to the third Kardashian sister questionable, he also was dating her for the popularity benefits that come with all things Kardashian these days—he even admitted as much in an interview with Billboard.

Well, further murmurings reveal that it seems that he was cashing in on the relationship—literally and figuratively. Not only did dating Khloe boost his popularity profile, but the execs at E! wrote him a sizable check for appearing on the family's reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and the spinoff show Kourtney and Khloe Take the Hamptons. Montana stuck reality-TV gold thanks in large part to Kris Jenner, who serves as an executive producer on both shows, and handled negotiations with her daughter's ex.

Executives over at E!, however, are less thrilled with the addition of French Montana to the show—and the hefty price tag he brings with them. An anonymous source told the New York Daily News 'He's expensive, and some people at E! just don't think he's worth the money," the source says. "I've heard execs moaning about it, saying, 'We're just paying so much for him!'" When it comes to his relationship with Khloe, it doesn't sound like French Montana is worth any sort of fee, large or not.

Modern Family star Winter emancipated herself from her emotionally abusive "stage mother," Chrisoula Workman, in 2015, and was placed in the custody of her older sister, Shanelle Gray, in the meantime. "This is what she wanted me to do, and she pushed very hard for that and kind of put that in the forefront of her mind instead of what I wanted and what I needed," she told People about her mother. "And that was definitely hard, but I don't think that was the only issue." She also addressed the difficulty of growing up under the paparazzi's gaze: "It's really hard to have that kind of drama in your life and to be going through that tough situation and have an open court case and have everyone look at it, because it's already hard enough for abuse victims, but it's harder in the public eye when everybody has an opinion," she explained.
