Kris Jenner is apparently eyeing up a job as Cara Delevingne's "surrogate momager".

The Kardashian/Jenner matriarch is behind the successful careers of her children, including Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, Kendall and Kylie.

Models Cara and Kendall are best friends, and the British beauty is also close to Kendall's family. As she progresses with her acting career, Kris is said to want to take over as her manager.

"[Kris thinks she's in the] best place to oversee the next phase of Cara's career as she makes tracks with the American market," a source told British magazine Grazia.

"The whole family has been exceedingly good to Cara, especially during the long stints away from home for work. They've all looked after her, particularly Kris. I'm sure Kris thinks she's in with a chance of becoming Cara's surrogate 'momager'."

To celebrate Cara's 23rd birthday earlier this month, Kris posted a gushing message to the star, calling Cara her little love bug and using the hashtag #family.

The 59-year-old is apparently convinced she can help Cara's career, but others aren't so sure.

"Kris is extremely fond of Cara and is convinced she can take her career to the next level. Now that she no longer acts as Kim's primary manager, she wants to get her teeth into a new project but those in the know can't see it coming to pass. Cara adores Kris, but her career seems to be doing pretty well as it is," the source said.

However a recent interview with Good Morning Sacramento to promote her new movie Paper Towns led to Cara being labelled rude, so maybe a helping hand from Kris could prove to be beneficial.

"Her sarcastic answers caused some to speculate that she may have burned bridges in Hollywood. It was by no means a disaster, but it can't have done her many favours with big studio execs," the insider pointed out.
