She has come under fire time and time again for putting business above her family’s welfare.
But Kris Jenner has admitted she feels ‘guilty’ for the times she has to be a manager first and mother second.
‘I feel guilty all the time because I can’t be everywhere at once,’ the Kardashian matriarch toldUs Weeklymagazine. ‘I feel like I want to be there for everybody, whoever needs me, I just worry about them all.’

Kris, who gets a ten per cent cut of her daughters’ various deals, admitted she thinks ‘you’re happier that way’ when asked why she pushes her children.
‘My girls are not pansies,’ she added. ‘But I think everyone needs direction.’
And she defended her decision to thrust her brood in the limelight, claiming she was has never exploited them.
‘My family could have said, “Are you out of your mind?” But everyone was excited!’ she insisted.

Kris, 57, also confessed that it can be hard being the ‘momager’ to all of her girls, especially when they act like clients instead of simply her daughters.
‘One moment I’m talking to Khloe as her mom. Suddenly, she’ll turn around and [say]… “I’m your client and you didn’t do this,”’ Kris said.
‘I get scolded or, you know, they’re not happy about something and I have to fix it.’
Mother-of-six Kris has come under yet more scrutiny for sexualising her 17-year-old and 15-year-old daughters Kendall and Kylie, a claim she calls ‘ridiculous’.

But it comes as reports emerge that Kris is ‘forcing them to be the breakout stars’ after being pushed away by Kourtney, Kim and Khloe, following the release of their late father Robert’s diaries.
Sources told In Touch that after pulling the teenagers out of school, Kris intends to ‘work them for every penny’.
A source who allegedly used to work with the family claimed: ‘Kris is trying to mold Kendall and Kylie into the next mega-brand – the next Kim Kardashian. Kris isn’t acting like their mom.’
Meanwhile a reported family friend alleged that Kendall and Kylie’s father Bruce Jenner is not happy about the path his two little girls are being pushed down.

The insider said: ‘He doesn’t want the girls working as much as they are. He says they should just do it when they have time off from schoolwork, or one day a week, not virtually full-time.’
The source added: ‘Kendall and Kylie love their mother, but I’m not sure they will look back on all this one day and be happy. Kris has stolen their childhood.’
But Kris is continuing to quash suggestions that her marriage to the Olympian is on the rocks, although rumours have been swirling since November.
‘I’ve been divorced 17 times,’ she joked to Us Weekly. ‘I’m married to the best guy. Bruce lets these things go like water off a duck’s back.’
