Last month, the news broke that nobody wanted to hear - Keeping Up With The Kardashians could be cancelled after twelve seasons due to too many family fights. The reality show that has been running since 2007, family members Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian, and Kris, Caitlyn, Kendall and Kylie Jenner have all appeared on the show (some more than others) and off the back of it's success they are now collectively worth an estimated $300 million.
Over the years, fans of the show have seen many tears and tantrums but this could be the final straw as everyone is starting to pull in different directions - especially with the added dramatic introduction of Blac Chyna this year who is carrying the youngest heir to the Kardashian fortune. Things clearly are not going well, in one of the latest episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Rob told Kourtney, "I'm gonna go on the red carpet tonight and I'm gonna tell everybody how I have the worst, most unsupportive, disgusting family."
Professor and pyschologist Melanie Booth-Butterfield told The Daily Mail all the fights could be a result of them the family being too close. She revealed, "Hypercoprecence happens when things are very controlled and scheduled; you are together in the car, the hotel room, always with other people. It's the idea that you are too close and you can't get away from people." She added, "Instead of having autonomy to be able to get away when you want you have to coordinate with other people." If this is the case then maybe it is time that the Kardashian-Jenner got a break from each other for a while.
Here we look over twenty of the most memorable Kardashian-Jenner family arguments of all time...
20 Rob Tweets Kylie's Phone Number
Rob was furious last week when his family decided to throw a baby shower for him but they failed to invite his pregnant fiancee, Blac Chyna. He then set out for revenge and tweeted Kylie's personal phone number to the world.
He wrote on Twitter: "Didn’t invite the Mother of my child to a baby shower you all were trying to throw for me? You all must have lost your damn minds." Just so people knew he had actually really gone this far he added, "I ain’t hacked either this is rob dog lol."
Rob later calmed down and apologised for his behaviour. He told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show: "I kind of took all my anger out on Kylie and my family. It wasn’t just Kylie, it was my whole family. I went in on them on group text. And I was just being petty and posted (Kylie’s) number. Kylie, if you’re listening I love you." We're guessing when Kylie gets her hands on a new phone number she won't be handing it to Rob in a hurry.
19 Kendall Threatens To Stab Kylie
Three years ago on an episode of KUWTK, Kendall caused a lot of concern when she reached for a sharp knife and told Kylie, "I'm going to grab this knife and stab you multiple times in the throat." The actual argument was about a pair of ski pants and it wasn't going to be the only huge bust-up they had over clothes.
In season 11, they were at it again but this time it was over borrowing a dress; as they get ready for the ESPY's dinner and Kylie refuses to let Kendall borrow anything from her wardrobe. Kendall screams, "You're just literally the biggest f****ng b***h I've ever met. Kylie replies, "Uh, touché!" before Kendall turns to Kylie's dogs and adds, "I'm sorry your mom is such a -" then she shockingly drops the c-bomb!
Kylie later confesses on the show that the reason behind the big fight was because tensions were high - that night would be the first public appearance of their father as Caitlyn Jenner. She revealed, "It’s annoying. This night is already stressful as it is. We want to show that we support Dad so we don’t need to be fighting over outfits - maybe that’s since we’re fighting over something so stupid?" The sisters have since made up - at least until the next wardrobe war.
18 Rob Calls Kim "Gone Girl"
Over the past few years Rob has been on and off Instagram, he is either posting several times a day or deleting every picture and starting again. In March 2015, after a long term hiatus from the picture sharing site, Rob posted a picture of Rosamund Pike as Amy Dunn in Gone Girl and he wrote: "This is my sister Kim, the b***h from Gone Girl."
It's fair to say Kim was not impressed she was compared with the psychotic, attention-seeking villain. When a fan tweeted her asking what had happened, Kim tweeted back: "He thinks he's being funny. I got mad at him and he posted that to get me back."
The family were concerned that Rob had become too introverted and unsociable. Khloe said on an episode of KUWTK, "I just feel, especially over the last year, Rob has become very introverted and has a kind of social anxiety. He's definitely not at his happiest place that he once was, and I know he can get to that happy place and he will."
17 The Never-Ending Instagram Battles
Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, Kylie and Kris have a combined following of 345.6 million followers between them, with Kim and her 84.2 million loyal fans taking the lead. Then last year Kendall finally managed to steal the crown from Kim and win the war in the most-liked Instagram photo. Kylie styled her hair (with obvious assistance) into love hearts and the picture has currently been liked 3.2 million times. She knocked Kim off the top spot with the picture of her wedding day to Kanye West that had 2.5 million likes.
Kim does have more followers but does she have the most average likes per photo? Comparing stats, Kourtney falls behind in last position with an average of 528,000 likes per picture, Kim is in second position with an average of 965,000 likes per picture, and Kendall and Kylie take top spot with an average of 1.3 million likes per picture.
However, the Kardashian-Jenner gang may have landed themselves in deep water since nonprofit organization Truth in Advertising claimed five members of the family have not been fully disclosing product endorsements to their followers. Kylie allegedly had 57 instances of undisclosed promotion followed by Kim who had an alleged 22 - the girls need to either start using the hastag "#ad" or face an Insta-ban or hefty fine.
16 Kim Calls Khloe An "Ugly Troll"
In 2011, during an episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York, Khloe made the big mistake of interrupted Kim's beauty sleep when she walked into her bedroom to say goodbye. Kim later raged to Kourtney on the phone: "Khloe barged in here and woke me the f**k up. We've been working 18 hours a day... you know that I need to sleep. I've been falling asleep at everything that we f**king do."
Khloe revealed that she had received a string of abusive text messages from Kim as a result of disturbing her slumber. She said, "(Kim told me) I'm spiteful, I'm jealous of her life. It's crazy that she thinks that way, but also sad." She also added that Kim had called her "an evil, ugly little troll."
It was quite a low jab at Khloe who has been suffering with low self-esteem issues for years. In the series she reveals, "(When bullies) call you fat, ugly, too tall and so on, you start to think all those things about yourself. And if you're like me, those words are played on repeat inside your head." After the episode aired, Kim just shrugged her behaviour off with a tweet that read: "The things sisters do and say to each other."
15 Kim Forces Kylie To Admit She Had Lip Fillers
It was the world's worst kept secret but Kylie finally admitted that she had lip fillers last year - however this was only because Kim forced her to go public. Kylie revealed on an episode of KUWTK, "I have had temporary lip fillers. It's just something that I wanted to do."
Kylie had previously denied any work had been done to her instead using the excuse she was just growing up. She told Cosmopolitan magazine, "You guys have watched me grow up since I was nine. My face is going to get different. Now, I know how to do my makeup, contour and everything. I’m not against surgery. I’d never say no, but I don’t desire it right now."
On the show, viewers could also see Kim pushing Kylie for her confession as she told her: "If you avoid the question, you're going to look like a liar" and finally Kylie broke and spilled the truth. The Daily Mail reported it took Kylie weeks to forgive Kim for pushing her into the confession - maybe she realised it was her big sister trying to get one up on her again?
14 When Kim Hired A Private Investigator To Track Scott
In 2013, Kourtney raged at a pregnant Kim and even threw her out the house after it was revealed she had hired a private investigator to tail Scott. During an episode of Kim and Kourtney Take Miami, Kim hires a PI to put a tracking device on Scott's car, check his phone records and take pictures of him partying and this was all because she believed he was acting "shady."
When Kim revealed her findings to her sister, Kourtney raged, "Seriously how dare you get involved in my family and try to rake things up. Hiring a private investigator to follow Scott?" She also added, "It is not okay to come into my life and get involved" before throwing her sister's belongings out onto the street.
Scott also wasn't too impressed with Kim's behaviour. He said, "Would Kim be happy if she broke up a family? That's what I don't get. It doesn't surprise me that Kim hired a private investigator, she has done this before in her past relationships but for somebody that I love and trust have someone follow me? I have never felt more betrayed or upset. This is an all-time low."
13 Kris Is Shaded By Brody Jenner
Brody Jenner has officially cut all ties with his stepmother Kris Jenner. After his father, then Bruce Jenner, and Kris divorced, Brody decided he no longer wanted a relationship with Kris stating, "I don't need two moms."
He told Mirror online, "Kris and I don't speak. We just don't speak. It has nothing to do with me actively disliking her. I think she's just busy. Anyway, I have a mother who I speak to. I don't need two of them." He did confirm that he would always be close to his step-sisters Kim, Khloe and Kourtney adding, "I grew up with them - of course they are my sisters. Even though our parents are divorced doesn't mean I don't see them that way anymore. I've known them for a really long time."
Kris and Brody's feud has been brewing for quite some time over the years. It all started when Kris disagreed with Brody splitting from The Hills co-star, Lauren Conrad, as she believed the pair could be turned into another celebrity goldmine on her books. Brody managed his own reality television career without her help - a huge insult for the ultimate momager.
12 Khloe Is Uninvited To Kim's Wedding
It was the wedding of the year; Kim was marrying her sweetheart Kris Humphries during an over-the-top ceremony at an estate in Montecito, California. However, Khloe almost missed the entire ceremony after Kim flew into a rage and uninvited her. During a two-hour special featuring the wedding, Khloe suggested the couple were getting married too quickly and that she hoped "intentions are pure." She also added, "I’m worried about Kris Humphries’ intentions. He sees Kim, who is this beautiful trophy wife. Kris has nothing to lose if he marries Kim and gets a divorce."
It's safe to say Kim was raging and a huge row broke out. Khloe asked, "So you don’t want me to come to your wedding?" to which Kim replied, "No I don’t. What would ever make you believe you could say something like that?" Khloe fired back, "I’m just doing what everyone is saying behind his back." To which Kim said, "If all of you are talking s*** behind my back then there’s no reason why any of you should come to the wedding." Thankfully Kim and Khloe made up in time and the whole family were there for the wedding - then Kim and Kris divorced 72 days later so Khloe was right all along.
11 Kim Throws A Garden
Kim planned an adorable "Kidchella" party for North's first birthday and she wanted the party organised like a mini replica of the popular Colorado, California, festival. As they needed a large garden to suit her plans so she used Kourtney's house and the grounds at her property to hold the event - although she didn't bother to tell Kourtney about this.
In fact Kourtney only found out when she received an email with the invitation from her older sister. In an episode of KUWTK she said, "I cannot believe that Kim would have the nerve to throw North's birthday party at my house and think that I wouldn't find out about it." She added: 'I guarantee you that Kim has no idea that this e-vite was sent to me. But I am sure that they sent it to me on accident."
Kourtney was also angered because she had not even had chance to throw her own housewarming party yet. She raged, "It's like she's beaten me to it. It's rude." She arrived hours before the party and confronted Kim complaining that her grass was going to be ruined. Kim replied, "Kourtney, I will get you new grass, you are re-doing the landscaping anyway. You wouldn't even know we were here." Yeah Kourtney, so what's the big deal anyway?
10 Kris Has Had Enough Of Scott's Drinking
Let's be honest here - Kris and Scott have never really seen eye to eye. Kris became increasingly infuriated over the years with Scott's party lifestyle as she watched her daughter, Kourtney, bring up their three children almost on her own. Kris was so angered by the playboy that she even wanted to kick him off the show permanently.
This year a source told Life & Style magazine, "Kris wants Scott off the show. Kris says there is no purpose for Scott anymore – his story is stale." Scott has since been working overtime to get Kris back on his good side as a source told In Touch, "He’s caught on to how useless everyone thinks he is. The whole thing has Scott really scared."
In 2015, Kris tried to get Scott to stop his alcohol abuse when she brought his three children Mason, Penelope and Reign, to visit him at a rehab center in Malibu, where he underwent treatment for substance abuse issues. This was perhaps Kris' strange way of showing Scott what he should be focused on - however her tactic was a bit harsh for both the kids and their father.
9 Kim Isn't Picked As Guardian
When Kourtney and Scott announced they were pregnant with their first child, Mason, everyone wanted to know who would be picked as guardian and of course we all believed it would naturally be Kim. But we were wrong.
In an episode of KUWTK, Scott blurts out that Khloe will be Mason's legal guardian if anything were to happen to them both and Kim did not take the news well. Koutney told Kim straight that she would have to change her selfish behaviour if she wished to be responsible for children as she commented, "You're all about Kim right now. It's not about just coming over, hanging out, taking a photo and putting it on Facebook."
Kim cried hysterically during an on-camera interview vowing that she would change her ways and her lifestyle if Mason were left in her care. After things calmed down, Kourtney managed to pacify Kim by giving her the responsibility of managing Mason's fortune and future investments if anything were to happen to his parents - that soon cheered her up.
8 The Bentley Bust Up
There have been some epic battles between the sisters over several seasons of KUWTK but none can really compare to the bust up over a Bentley during season two. The show had took off, Kim was making some extra cash on the side and to celebrate she decides to treat herself to a Bentley.
Khloe and Kourtney decide to go along with her to the car dealership but tempers flare when Kim believes her sisters are being rude, whereas they see it differently and believe that Kim is a** kissing the guy who owns the dealership. The tension had already been rising, as family members believed the show was changing Kim's personality. Kim then calls Khloe a "jealous, psycho b***h" and that she never wants to see her or Kourtney's ugly face ever again. She also screamed at her sisters, labelling them jealous and accusing them of "trying to ruin this moment for me."
Kim then returns to their shared apartment later and Khloe slams a door in her face as she tried to walk in. Kim flips out, starts to hit Khloe with her handbag and punches her in the arm - all because of a Bentley.
7 Kim Calls Kourtney "Boring and Miserable" Since Giving Birth
Before Kim became a mother herself, she had a huge bust up with Kourtney accusing her of becoming a "slob" since she gave birth. In a conversation with her best friend, Johnathan Cheban, she said, "(Kourtney) literally is like Octomom. It’s so overwhelming, it’s even made me second guess wanting to have kids." She added, "I would die if I had kids right now."
Kim visited Kourtney and had further negative comments to add when she saw her wearing sweatpants. Kourtney argued, "Talk to me once you have a child." Kim then took it too far and said her sister was leading a "boring and miserable life." Kim asked, "If you knew how boring you’d become, would you still have had kids?"
Kourtney stormed out on Kim, called her a "b***h" and added, "This is the life I want, that I’m happy in. I don’t expect you to get it." Kim later apologised to Kourtney in floods of tears, as she knew her comments were close to losing her a close friend and sister.
6 Scott Gets Angry Over Kourtney's Hidden Pregnancy
Scott didn't take to the news that he was going to have a third child very well. Two years ago, Scott walked into the bedroom where Kourtney was packing clothes for their daughter Penelope and he comments, "How many clothes does one little kid need?" Kourtney replied, "A lot" then without missing a beat she adds, "Can you shut the door for a second? I just wanted to tell you that I am pregnant."
Scott was speechless for a while then raged, "This is ridiculous. It is always so sneaky with you. You need to stop lying to me. You just keep suckering me into these kids. I can't handle all of this responsibility" then questioning when Kourtney was planning on telling him he added, "Were you gonna wait 'til the kid popped out of ya?" Away from Kourtney to the confession camera he added, "This ain't good. One of my biggest annoyances with Kourtney is that she has not been honest with me, she has known about this for weeks."
The couple worked it out and welcomed another son, Reign Aston, later that year.
5 Rob Calls Kim A "W***e"
Kim and Rob had an explosive argument that all stemmed from Kim laying into her brother calling him a "jobless loser." Rob then retaliated by calling Kim a "w***e" all during a family holiday in Bora Bora. Kim's then-fiancè joined in telling Rob, "How you deal with your sister, like in front of me, you’re not gonna call her that in front of me." Rob then threatened, "I don’t want to be the guy that takes a knife and kills my sister’s boyfriend."
Rob has always struggled with his family and they too have battled with him over concerns of his fluctuating weight. Rob confessed that his anger came from his own personal frustrations and he told his sister Khloe, "I’ve never felt so down and depressed in my life. I’m trying to be in the fashion industry and I’m not going to be taken seriously when I’m fifty pounds overweight. It’s embarrassing to the family." Since moving onto a relationship with Blac Chyna, Rob has managed to shed a lot of weight and he is a lot nicer to Kim too.
4 Kim and Khloe vs Caitlyn
When Caitlyn Jenner gave her first interview to Vanity Fair she wasn't shy in coming forward about how Kris treated her towards the end of the marriage. When asked if her choice to end the marriage was because of gender, she replied, "Twenty percent was gender and eighty percent was the way I was treated." Caitlyn also implied that Kris was a bully and the more money she earned the worse she became.
Khloe was furious her mother had been called out so openly. She said on an episode of KUWTK, "We’re just not a family who goes and bashes the other one publicly. If we have an issue with someone, we’ll go and address it to their face." Kim also confronted Caitlyn about her comments. She raged, "You said, ‘Kris mistreated me.’ It sounded like she beat the s**t out of you. You got the fame, but you’re losing your family. It’s your time, but you don’t have to bash us on your way up."
Caitlyn landed her on show I Am Cait that broke ground with in-depth discussions about gender but was cancelled by E! after two seasons.
3 Kylie and Blac Chyna Battle It Out On Social Media
The rivalry between Kylie and Blac Chyna has been long brewing since Tyga, who is the father of Chyna's 3-year-old son King Cairo, started dating the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner family in 2015. The first of their social media battles started when Kylie and Tyga had been dating just a few weeks, and Chyna decided to post a picture of her laid on a floor with huge fake red lips - mocking Kylie's famous pout.
Chyna also went a step further and posted the text messages Tyga had sent begging to have her back, although it was later debunked that these texts were very old and not sent when Tyga had not been dating Kylie - well played Chyna. Chyna even got her own mother involved who commented, "(Kylie) is 17 and already has lip injections. Her older sister got famous from a sex tape. They are no better than anybody."
It looks like the feud has died down ever since Rob started dating Chyna - or maybe this is just all part of her masterplan?
2 Kourtney and Kim Wage War Over Money
With a family this rich there are bound to be the occasional battles over money. Life & Style magazine reported that Kourtney was not happy with Kim using her likeness in her app Kim Kardashian: Hollywood without any payment. It's not as if Kim didn't have the cash to spare, Glu Mobile, the publisher behind her popular game, revealed overall they have made more than $100 million since it was first released two years ago.
Kourtney sent a cease and desist letter to Kim, via their momager Kris, basically saying either pay up or remove her character completely from the game. Life & Style reported, "It was basically a big F-you to Kim. She didn't want to be included in the game without being paid!" They added, "She feels like she's the one who got them all famous anyway."
Kim is currently in the lead when it comes to personal wealth - she is worth a staggering estimated $60 million whereas Kourtney is worth $20 million. Maybe time to start inventing your own game Kourt?
1 Rob Skips Kim's Wedding
What was supposed to be the happiest day of Kim's life (for real this time!) was missed by Rob since he skipped the wedding before she even made it down the aisle. All her other family attended the lavish wedding at Fort di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, but her brother was nowhere to be seen. Kim was reportedly sobbing and screaming down the phone to Rob that he had to be present for the wedding but this just persuaded him against the idea even more.
Rob later revealed to People magazine, "I was doing my suit fittings in Paris right before the wedding. I just wasn’t comfortable. I’m 6’1″ and at my most I probably weighed 300 lbs. There were cameras at the airport on our trip there and I was very unhappy with the person I saw in all the pictures." Once again Rob's self-conscious demons appeared and he skipped the wedding because he wasn't confident appearing in pictures that would be seen all around the world.
Looks as if there are some downsides to being famous worldwide.
