Caitlyn Jenner knows how to play hardball!
It was reported that even though the reality star spent about $4 million on her transition, she'll end up making PROFIT thanks to a lucrative check from E! for her docu-series!
According to inside sources at Radar, the former Olympian was paid $5 million for her upcoming show I am Cait – the most E! has ever paid for a solo reality show!

Wow! We're sure even Kris Jenner is impressed with that cash flow! The insider said:
"It's the biggest paycheck ever given by E! for a solo reality show, and Caitlyn's agent was relentless in getting her the huge payday. At one point, talks between the network and E! had broken down, because nobody wanted to pay her more than $2 million. Caitlyn's agent then began informal talks with other networks, and E! quickly came back to the table, ready to pay $5 million."
Clearly, the cable network had very little choice but to cough up more dough, as both parties know this show is going to be monumental!
The big paycheck will definitely be brought up in Jenner's upcoming court case. The 65-year-old is being sued for the fatal car accident she was involved with in February!
No matter where the money ends up going, one thing is clear — E! will do whatever it takes to keep Cait in their reality repertoire!
