A Deep Dive into Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian’s Ongoing Feud
With the tension between the eldest Kardashian sisters, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian fans are convinced that their long-running reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians is coming to an end.
Things have been rough between the ladies — especially Kim and Kourtney since last year when Kim told her older sister that she was the least interesting to look at. She also accused the mother of three of not working.
Though there have been moments of levity between the ladies — tension over Penelope Disick and North West’s Candy Land-themed party and Kim calling her sister a fake humanitarian h*e have only made matters worse. Now, Kourtney is officially stepping back from the show. Here’s a look back at how this feud all began.
Kourtney Kardashian has been distancing herself from her sisters and ‘KUWTK’ since 2018
The drama all began with a KUWTK episode that aired on July 31, 2018. In the episode, Kourtney was openly ignoring Kim and Khloé in favor of her phone. This also kicked off a major tiff between Kourt and Kim over the 2018 holiday Christmas Card. Kourtney — who admittedly has the least hectic schedule refused to set time apart for the photoshoot. She also skipped out on Kim’s baby shower causing an even bigger rift between the family.
In early August 2018 — Kourtney told E! News she’s “definitely proud to be a Kardashian but every day, almost, I was being picked on and criticized and I just couldn’t take it anymore.”
It also set off a major Twitter war between Kim and Kourtney. Khloé was also dragged into the feud and clapped back at her eldest sister. Later, Khloé revealed that Kim — not Kourtney whom she used to be closer to — is the legal guardian of her daughter True, should something happened to her.
The fighting between Kim and Kourtney escalated in 2019
Though the bickering between the sisters seemed to die down by the end of 2018, things escalated once the new year. In May 2019 Kourtney revealed that she no longer had any desire to be famous.
“I always say I want to move away someday and just be away from it all,” she told Paper Magazine. “Sail away. No one will ever see me again. I keep throwing up different places, but then I’ll go there to visit and I’ll be like, ‘Nope, this isn’t it, but glad I came.’ We’ve just been to Finland. And I was like, ‘Check, it’s great for me to visit, but I’m not going to move there.’ Maybe Norway. Switzerland? I’ve got a lot of ideas.”
Kourtney Kardashian would be happy if ‘KUWTK’ ended
Things finally came to a head when Kourtney revealed that she would be retreating from KUWTK. As her sisters looked on she told E! News,
I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there. But I’m not saying goodbye. But I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet, but it’s being filmed. Currently, in this room.
This came after she said she’d be happy if the whole Kardashian empire was no more.
