A True Story of Ambition, Wealth, Betrayal and how a Ruthless Beverly Hills Socialite Became the Ultimate Momager and Raked In Billions Dirty Sexy Money: The Unauthorized Biography of Kris Jenner is the definitive account of how a Beverly Hills socialite with little formal education built herself a global empire. This tell-all tome unravels the family’s meteoric rise to fame and the dark secrets they’ve struggled to hide . . . until now. Together, Howard and Griffin delve behind the headlines and social media hype to tell the true story of Kris’s life—rather than the rosy picture she likes to paint. Dirty Sexy Money is an unflinching look at Kris’s triumphs and losses, her crises and celebrations, her famous friendships and family conflicts. It examines in unprecedented detail Kris’s troubled two decades with Bruce Jenner and the end of their marriage as Bruce transitioned to Caitlyn; it exposes the truth about her current affair with a much younger man . . . and it reveals what she really thinks of her daughter’s very public marriage to Kanye West. Inside are a wealth of previously untold stories, including intimate details of how Kim’s sex tape jump-started her career, of the real reasons Kris sold her long-running television reality series—as well as shocking, never-before-heard revelations about her friendships with O.J. Simpson and murdered wife Nicole. The result is a dramatic narrative account of Kris’s real story as you’ve never heard it before . . . in all its dirty, sexy glory.
