We guess riding the coattails of Kim Kardashian West isn't as lucrative as Jonathan Cheban thought…
According to the Sun, Jonathan will actually NOT be appearing on the 19th season of Celebrity Big Brother after producers refused to give in to his lavish and extensive demands.
Apparently, the KUWTK recurring character reportedly thought he was worth $100K… PER DAY!!!

While fans of the show will probably be disappointed to miss out on an epic confrontation between the hanger-on and Kim K.'s nemesis Ray J, we guess it just wasn't meant to be. But now we're wondering what's the point of the rapper even being there!
To make matters even more ridiculous, the self-declared foodie also asked for his own private room, Michelin star meals, a masseuse, and someone to watch him at all times…
A source went on to reveal:
"As soon as Jonathan found out about Ray J's pay packet he demanded a bigger fee. What he wanted for two days was more than some of the contestants are getting for a four week stint. As well as the £100,000, Jonathan wanted gourmet prepared Michelin star meals, his own bedroom, a masseuse and access to a minder at all times. It all got way too out of hand and in the end the bosses simply retracted his provisional contract."
He sounds almost as delusional as Tyga! LOLz!!
Now that Jonny has been axed from the show, he's been on a shopping spree in London… just look at his latest tweet (below)!!!
Ha! We guess the reality star is trying to play it cool for now…
Do YOU think Jonathan asked for more $$$$$ than he's worth??
