Chris Harrison has announced he's officially leaving the "Bachelor" franchise after nearly 20 years! He's been the host and producer since it started in 2002.
This comes after all the controversy after he defended Rachel Kirkconnell. He didn't leave empty handed though. Reports say that he's getting an 8 figure payday for leaving. Page Six says it was an ugly split, with Chris threatening to divulge the show's dirty secrets if he didn't get $25 million.
Warner Brothers and ABC said in a joint statement, quote, "We are thankful for [Chris'] many contributions over the past 20 years and wish him all the best on his new journey.”
In the Jonas Brothers' new memoir, Blood, Kevin shares a story about how the guys were stranded in the middle of nowhere by an angry bus driver.
According to Kevin, this happened before the JoBros were famous, so everyone was struggling to pay bills and the bus driver was upset he hadn't been paid.
Kevin said, “He called Dad and told him, ‘If you don't pay me what you owe me soon, I'm gonna kick them out of the bus and leave them on the side of the highway. And true to his word, he pulled over one day on the side of the highway, said the bus had broken down, and left us in the middle of nowhere for more than 12 hours until my dad paid him.”
Blood will be released on November 9.
