Kim Kardashian Has To Pay A $1.26M Fine And T.I. Once Faced A $75K Penalty — Here's What We Know About SEC Filings And Disclosures

What do T.I. and Kim Kardashian have in common? They both have run afoul of SEC disclosures. Kardashian has to pay the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) a total of $1.26 million for her failure to disclose a payout for promoting a cryptocurrency. According to the SEC’s official website, Kardashian received $250,000 from EMAX tokens, a cryptocurrency offered by EthereumMax. While SEC disclosures don’t forbid “influencers” to receive compensation for promoting crypto-coins, they do require that said influencers disclose when they receive payment for said promotion, which Kardashian didn’t do. As a result, she has agreed to pay a fine. “The federal securities laws are clear that any celebrity or other individual who promotes a crypto asset security must disclose the nature, source, and amount of compensation they received in exchange for the promotion,” said Gurbir S. Grewal, Director of the SEC’s Division of Enforcement, in the official release. “Investors are entitled to know...

Securing a legacy is probably at the forefront of most parents’ minds. If at all possible, parents contend with the idea of what they should do for their children as a way to set them up for success. While the privilege of generational wealth is more accessible for some, ensuring that your child has a quality start is no easy feat. As controversial as Kanye West can be, one apparent thing is his care and affection for his children. During an interview on ABC News, West noted that he had confidence in his eldest daughter, North West, and her ability to ensure that no one took over or take advantage of West and Kim Kardashian’s brands in the future.

Did It Take The Kardashians Speaking Out For Instagram To Back Down On Video Updates?

It looks like the Kardashians may have had a hand in Instagram’s decision to scale back on previous plans to focus strictly on videos, CNBC reports. However, the celebrity family was not the only ones who were outspoken about the social media network’s recent uptick in videos. Tons of users flocked to the Internet to express their grievances. Many people, including the Kardashians, accused them of copying their competitor, TikTok, in terms of videos. I have the full screen test, I don’t like it. I miss being able to scroll, not going one by one. I desperately want the option for a chronological feed; I follow over 2k accounts and only see posts from the same 100 or so. Videos are fine, but I use IG for IG, not Tiktok. — Quinoa 🍚 (@Quinoanoir) July 26, 2022 In fact, it seems like all it took was for Kylie Jenner to co-sign a petition calling to “Make Instagram Instagram Again,” before the platform’s chief shared some comments of his own. On Tuesday, Adam Mosseri responded...

Dwayne Johnson Is Now The Second Highest-Paid Instagram Celebrity — But Who Beat 'The Rock?'

Dwayne Johnson is no longer the highest-paid Instagram celebrity. A report by the BBC once listed “The Rock” as Instagram’s most valuable star. With 187 million followers on the app at the time, the wrestler-turned-mogul commanded more than $1 million per post from potential sponsors. At the time, too, the BBC reported that Cristiano Ronaldo commanded about $889,000 per post, while Kim Kardashian commanded around $858,000 per post. Interestingly, however, the outlet said that all these numbers were approximations. As such, there was no way to really know who was the highest-paid Instagram celebrity. “The rankings and cost per post were arrived at after speaking with so-called social media “influencers” themselves, along with brands and marketing companies, and using publicly available pricing information to estimate how much each account could charge,” they said. “However, marketers tend to be secretive about how much they pay, or the posts may be part of a wider deal – as is often...

Kanye West Makes History By Breaking Apple Music Streaming Record With 'DONDA' Listening Event

Kanye West did more than just preview his upcoming album at his public listening event, he broke a record for Apple Music too. According to a report from TMZ, the billionaire rap artist not only sold out the Mercedes Benz Arena in Atlanta for his public “DONDA” listening party last Thursday (July 22), he also broke the Apple Music Global Livestream record with 3.3 million total viewers for the live in-person event. The outlet reports that this is an accomplishment no other artist on the platform has come near, far surpassing the 1.8 million viewers who tuned into the Verzuz battle between Jeezy and Gucci Mane on Apple Music late last year. The “DONDA” event was a one-time only occurrence that is not currently available to replay on Apple Music, so the 3.3 million viewers garnered solely happened off Thursday’s event alone. Sources also tell TMZ that upon the release of West’s album — which is set to supposedly drop on Aug. 6 — the listening event will then be posted for fans to...
