Kris Jenner has been managing her daughters' successful careers for years, but now it seems the 59-year-old is looking outside of her family for her latest client. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star is reportedly looking to become Cara Delevingne's 'momager', as the model makes her move to the world of Hollywood.
Kris Jenner reportedly wants to be Cara Delevingne's 'momager'
Kris, who has notoriously managed daughter Kim Kardashian's career for years, first set her sights on the role after Cara faced an awkward interview during an appearance on Good Day Sacramento, which quickly went viral.
"Her sarcastic answers caused some to speculate that she may have burned bridges in Hollywood," a source told Grazia. "It was by no means a disaster, but it can't have done her many favours with the kind of big studio execs who she needs to be courting in order to succeed."
The source added that Kris reportedly believes she is "best placed to oversee the next phase of Cara's career as she makes tracks with the American market".
Cara is close friends with Kris' daughter Kendall Jenner
It comes as no surprise that Kris is keen to help Cara's career as the young model has become close to the Kardashian-Jenner clan, even being nicknamed 'Kara' by Kris, a nod to the family's first names beginning with the letter 'K'. Cara is also particularly close to fellow model Kendall - the pair are often seen hanging out together both on and off the red carpet, as well as catching up during major fashion events.
"The whole family have been exceedingly good to Cara, especially during the long stints away from home for work," said a source. "They’ve all looked after her, particularly Kris, and it’s a very warm, clean-living environment compared to Cara’s hectic life in London. The two have grown quite close, and I’m sure Kris thinks she’s in with a chance of becoming Cara’s surrogate 'momager'."
"Kris is extremely fond of Cara and is convinced that she can take her career to the next level, like she did with Kim’s," they continued. "Now that she no longer acts as Kim’s primary manager, she wants to get her teeth into a new project, but those in the know can’t see it coming to pass. Cara adores Kris, but her career seems to be doing pretty well as it is."
