Family always comes first for the Kardashian-Jenners, but what’s family without drama? During its two decade-long run, Keeping Up With the Kardashians has witnessed some of the most explosive and scathing fights between the family members.
While some feuds fizzled faster than the others, some of the scuffles got too ugly. As Kourtney decided to distance herself from the show, tensions flared up between her and her sisters. Plus, Kim, Kourtney, and Kylie began setting up certain boundaries as their family grew bigger which shifted the family dynamics somewhat. Here’s a ranking of some of the most engaging and explosive fights and meltdowns on KUWTK.
10 Kylie Lashes Out At Kendall, Kris, And Tyga
During a family vacation, Kris asks Kylie to spend some time with Kendall since the sisters rarely get any time to hang out with each other. Kylie was devoting a lot of time to her then-boyfriend Tyga and his son. As Kylie leaves the room, Kris complains to Kendall and Tyga about Kylie and tells them that she acts cranky at times. “She doesn’t get life, she’s too far ahead of herself,” Kendall tells Kris. Kylie was actually within earshot and could hear them talk about her which annoyed her and retaliated; this was actually the first time the viewers got to see Kylie put her foot down and establish boundaries. “Are you guys talking about me? Can you go somewhere else and do that?” Kylie lashed out at them.
9 The Candy Fight Between Kim And Kourtney
This disagreement was quite tame as compared to other Kardashian fights, but fans noted that the argument between Kim and Kourtney had created friction between the two, as tensions had started flaring between the two sisters season 17 onwards. Kim basically wanted a candyland-themed birthday party to celebrate their daughters’ joint birthday. But Kourtney wanted healthy, sugar-free candies for the bash, which Kim thought was ridiculous.
“There are other treats that are not disgusting and filled with chemicals,” Kourtney told Kim. “It’s a candyland-themed party! Yes, that’s like what the party is about – Candyland. It’s not gluten-free land over here,” Kim retaliated.
8 The Bizarre Fight Between Kourtney And Kendall
Post their ski-ing trip to Aspen, Kendall ranted to Khloe about how ridiculous Kourtney made her feel during their trip. Kendall basically told Khloe that Kourtney teamed up with Kendall’s friends to laugh at Kendall and she felt bullied. Kourtney, on the other hand, told Khloe on a separate occasion that Kendall was being very controlling during their whole trip and she would try to micro-manage everything and wouldn’t even let the squad spend their own money at the supermarket. Kendall and Kourtney soon confronted each other and Khloe was put in a tough spot because she was caught between the two sisters, so the fight actually escalated quite a bit due to Khloe’s involvement.
7 Khloe’s Meltdown Post Tristan Cheating Scandal
As details of Tristan Thompson’s fling with Jordyn Woods started emerging from various sources, the Kardashian-Jenner clan struggled to cope. Things took a turn for the worse when Khloe found out that Jordyn was planning to make an appearance on Jada Pinkett-Smith’s Red Table Talk show to talk about the fling. Kris Jenner told Khloe that Jada’s team had gotten in touch with her and Khloe lashed out against her mother for not taking a stand against the interview.
Khloe was also seen going through a few difficult family roundtable discussions where she blamed Jordyn for not apologizing to Khloe one-on-one before agreeing to be part of a show.
6 Kourtney And Khloe’s Fight About Furniture
Season 15 onwards Kourtney began to express how she wasn’t ready to be so open about her personal life on KUWTK. Kim and Khloe thought Kourtney’s distancing act could mess with the show and would often be seen talking about Kourtney behind her back. During one such instance, Kourtney comes to visit a pregnant Khloe and Kim as they’re planning a cherry blossom-themed party for Kim’s newest arrival. Kim pointedly thanks Khloe particularly for being “so present,” which was a clear dig at Kourtney. And soon after, Kourtney began criticizing Khloe’s choice in furniture which offended Khloe. “Well thank you for coming over, thank you for being so lovely,” Khloe told Kourtney sarcastically. “Seriously what is wrong with you these days? You’re so b****y,” added Khloe.
5 Kylie And Kendall’s Fight Over Clothes
In 2015, as Kendall and Kylie were getting ready for the ESPY Awards where Kaitlyn Jenner was about to be honored, the sisters got into a huge fight over clothes. For any other siblings, a fight over clothes is rather commonplace, but things got heated during this incident, as Kylie put her foot down and refused to lend Kendall any of her clothes.
Kendall basically wanted to borrow a brown dress from Kylie and asked one of Kylie’s assistants. “No she can’t borrow that,” Kylie tells the staff member. “You’re literally the biggest f****ng b**** I’ve ever met,” Kendall roared at Kylie.
4 Kim And Kourtney’s Photoshoot Tussle
On the Season 15 premiere as Kim struggles to schedule a family photoshoot, Kourtney tells Kim that she can make herself available till 4 pm and will leave post that. That didn’t work out for Kim and as Kourtney continues to stand firm on her scheduling issues, Kim lashes out at her sister and tells her that no one wants her at the photoshoot because she’s the least exciting to look at. “Maybe if you had a f****ng business that you were passionate about then you would know what I’m talking about,” Kim yells at Kourtney as she leaves the room.
3 Kim’s Meltdown Over Kourtney’s Look
This was actually one of the moments when the fans got a look into what really goes behind Kim’s iconic fashion looks. As Kourtney and Khloe try to come up with a look for Kourtney, they settle on a vintage Dior number. They FaceTime Kim to ask her opinion when Kim accuses Kourtney of copying her look as Kourtney vehemently denies ever dressing like Kim. “I don’t think Kourtney realizes the legwork that goes behind this, I don’t think anybody understands. You have to really have a relationship with the designer…. She has no idea how this works,” Kim said.
2 Kylie And Kendall’s Palm Spring fight
This has to be one of the most shocking fights in the Kardashian-Jenner history. During a trip to Palm Springs, Kylie had promised to lend Kendall something to wear for dinner but eventually backed out due to some misplanning in scheduling. Kendall has a meltdown as she yells at Kylie in front of family members as everyone tries to calm her down. Kylie doesn’t respond to Kendall and instead does shots with Corey Gamble in the kitchen. Later that same night, Kendall and Kylie get into another scuffle as they travel in the same car while on their way home from dinner; in fact, Kylie allegedly got physical with Kendall, forcing Kendall to leave the car and run out crying.
1 The Altercation Between Kourtney And Kim
The physical scuffle between Kim and Kourtney has often been dubbed the most brutal in Kardashian history. A discussion over work ethic gets heated between the two as Kim implies that Kourtney doesn’t work as hard as her sisters. “You have this narrative in your mind… no, no. I will literally f*** you up,” Kourtney threatened Kim, as she launched an attack on Kim who was sitting opposite her. Things escalate really fast as Kim hits back and slaps Kourtney twice. Khloe and Kendall weren’t much help as they too were pretty shocked, and it took many days before things were back to normal between the two sisters.
