'Celebrity Big Brother' 2016: Jonathan Cheban To Pull Out? Kim Kardashian And Kris Jenner 'Fear He'll Spill Secrets'

Jonathan Cheban’s place in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house could be in doubt, as his BFF Kim Kardashian, and her mother Kris Jenner, are keen to dissuade him from appearing on the show, according to reports.


Jonathan is one one of Kim’s closest pals, and the reality TV star is reportedly fearful that he could divulge her family secrets during his time in the house.

As a regular ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star, Jonathan’s no stranger to reality TV, but the Borehamwood bungalow and its 24-hour cameras are worlds away from Kim’s structured show.

A source is quoted as telling the Mirror: “Kim and her mum took Jonathan to one side and had a heartfelt chat, promising to make him a bigger character on their show with more ­prominent storylines.

“Jonathan is already in plenty of scenes, but they want to give him more of an incentive not to do ‘CBB’.

“They’re also worried about how he’ll be portrayed and how interactions with gobby British housemates will go down.”
