They used to be solid as a rock, but the Kardashian clan appears to be falling apart these days. With busy schedules, broken relationships and a constant competition to be the most high-profile family member, internal battles are coming to a head. While Kim Kardashian is struggling to maintain her individuality as sister Kylie Jenner tries to steal the show, her husband Kanye is constantly arguing with her about the possibility of having another baby. Meanwhile, family matriarch Kris Jenner is said to be at loggerheads with sick Rob Kardashian as friends urge her to help her troubled son.
Kylie Couldn’t Care Less
Rumours have been circulating for months now about how Kim, 35, and Kylie, 18, have been growing apart as the teenager’s career continues to eclipse the mother-of-two. But now Kylie is hitting back at her sibling because Kim demanded that Kylie pay out a percentage of her earnings in her honour. A source told Life&Style.com: “Kim’s fed up with how much money Kylie is making by mimicking her. She says she’s entitled to at least 30 per cent of those earnings.” Kim claims Kylie stole her look, but the feisty youngster isn’t giving up without a fight. “Kylie thought that was the stupidest thing she ever heard. She shot back, ‘You’re just a greedy b***h who is never satisfied, no matter what,” added the insider.
Kim’s Atkins Diet Plan
So once again, Kim is trying hard to re-establish herself as the top dog in the famous family. The new mum has signed on to be a brand ambassador for the Atkins diet to help her shed the extra weight she gained while pregnant. The reality TV star welcomed her second child, son Saint, on 5 December 2015, and now Kim’s eager to get her pre-baby figure back with the help of the popular weight loss system so she can start modelling again. “Teaming up with Atkins Insider because it works for me!,” she wrote on Twitter. “So much variety on #Atkins40 and Harvest Trail Bars = yum.” Kim, who used Atkins to lose weight following the birth of daughter North in 2013, revealed she gained 60 pounds while pregnant with Saint, but she managed to lose 17 pounds by mid-December through breastfeeding and dieting.
Kanye Wants More Kids
As if fighting her sister and battling the bulge isn’t enough, Kim’s also involved in a war of words with hubby Kanye West. RadarOnline.com reported that Kanye has been badgering his wife to try and have a third child, but the rapper’s been nagging so much it’s led to fights and explosive arguments. A person close to the Kardashian-Wests told the website: “Kanye thinks she shouldn’t be making any permanent decision about future babies right now because she’s so depressed about her body.” Kim, who had a difficult second pregnancy, is adamant that she doesn’t want to do it again. The insider even revealed that she’s considering having her tubes tied. “Kim’s sticking to her position that this was her last pregnancy, [but Kanye] is begging her to hold off on doing anything permanent. He wants to continue growing the family and he’s ‘creeped out’ by the idea
Kris Abandons sick son Rob
Elsewhere in reality TV’s most famous clan, Kris Jenner is being told by friends to quit her TV show and act like a mum to son Rob Kardashian. After using the emotional and mental breakdowns of Lamar Odom and Scott Disick to boost ratings on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris, 60, is said to be planning the same stunt for newly diagnosed diabetic Rob. “One of Kris’s close friends recently urged her to think about stepping back from it all, so she could help Rob,” an associate claimed. “Rob’s suffering, and his health has only gotten worse since the diabetes was diagnosed. Kris’s full-time job is being the manager of all six kids, but it’s time for her to focus all of that energy on her son.” Apparently, Kris feels like she has done all she can for Rob, 28, and doesn’t want to waste any more time fighting for him when he refuses to respect her. “Kris just thinks it wouldn’t be the best use of her time because she has already tried to do so much for him, from reaching out to mental-health professionals, to talking to doctors, hiring chefs… She’s suggested so much and Rob just shoots it all down.”
