Why Don’t Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner Get Along? ‘KUWTK’ Fans Have Theories

There is no denying that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are an extremely tight-knit bunch. They travel together, attend parties together, and even launched their own businesses together. Although they have had their fair share of sibling feuds, when it comes to the Kardashian-Jenners they all seem to be more like friends than sisters.

While all the sisters do seem to like being around each other, some fans have noticed that some of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have a really tight bond, and others seem a bit distant. In particular, fans have noticed that Kim Kardashian West and Kendall Jenner seem to have a more distant relationship than others in the family.

The Kardashian-Jenner sisters and their collaborations

Over the years, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have collaborated on several occasions and sometimes have created businesses together. Kim and Kendall, however, haven’t collaborated much.

In 2006, Kim teamed up with Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian to create their first clothing boutique. Obviously, Kendall didn’t join her sisters on their business venture back then because she was just a kid. But a few years later when Kendall decided to start her own clothing line, she worked with Kylie Jenner instead of asking her older sister Kim, who had years of experience with selling high-fashion items.

Fans share their theories about Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian West’s relationship

Some fans on Reddit theorized that the reason Kim and Kendall do not seem that close is because Kendall is very independent and likes to march to the beat of her own drum. Unlike the other Kardashian-Jenner sisters, these fans think Kendall doesn’t want to follow Kim’s lead, but instead wants to make her own path.

“I think the other sisters are more of a follower and often don’t have too many strong opinions,” one person said. “But Kendall is more independent and does things her own way. It’s almost like Kim is a bit scared of her because she would usually call her family out with valid points and Kim isn’t good at sister arguments that are not yelling, crying, bullying, and manipulating.”

Another fan thought Kim might be intimidated by Kendall’s experience as a model in high fashion.

“Kendall seems a lot more comfortable with the high fashion androgyny thing,” they wrote. “She doesn’t rock the over-exaggerated feminine figure, isn’t often seen in full glam makeup on the show, etc. I think Kim may feel a little jealous, as this is all stuff that Kendall has learned from her time as a model. Kim realizes that her brand depends on a more conventional approach to fashion and style. Whereas Kendall can just embrace being weird and gets a lot of praise for it.”

And another fan mentioned the age difference between the sisters and simply thought that Kim and Kendall “have very different personalities and priorities in life.”
