Kim Kardashian Was Contractually Obligated to Promote the Ukrainian Pop Star Who Bought Her House
Published Jun 27, 2018The wannabe Ukrainian pop star who bought Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Los Angeles house for nearly $18 million USD didn't just get a piece of prime Bel Air real estate — she reportedly bought the promotional influence of Mrs. Kardashian West, as well.
According to The Blast, Marina Acton worked an unusual stipulation into the transaction last fall, requiring Kardashian to help make her famous.
Probably mostly due to the exorbitant offer Acton made on the property, Kardashian agreed to help Acton promote her work via social media and to make public appearances with her.
To date, Kardashian seems to have made good on the bizarre promotional promise, attending Acton's single release party for "Fantasize" and going to dinner with her at Craig's in Los Angeles.
Acton even received a personalized birthday greeting on Twitter from Kardashian late last year.

Despite the seemingly successful deal, Acton already has her sights set on a new home. She's put the house back up for sale, as TMZ points out. Apparently, she needs an additional 10,000 square feet of space to accommodate the baby she's expecting.
And before you suggest that Kardashian was promoting Acton's career out of genuine kindness or artistic appreciation, you might want to give "Fantasize" a listen below.
