Although Kris tried to diffuse the situation, claiming that despite his aggressive remarks he'd never actually hurt Penelope, Kourtney had already made up her mind.
"He will never be with my kids alone and if he does that in front of any of us there will be a f**king issue!”
When the fight ended, Scott, Kim and her best friend Jonathan Cheban— who was also present during the ordeal— showed their support for Kourtney and Scott by abruptly storming out of the restaurant halfway through lunch. Meanwhile, Kris sat awkwardly beside her man, wiping away her tears.
Later in the episode, Kourtney and Corey met up to hash out their issues, with an uncomfortable Kourt admitting they'll never see eye to eye on the issue. Although Corey assured the Poosh founder that he'd never hurt her children, he refused to take back what he said.
“I understand how Kourtney and Scott feel but I can say what I want to say because that’s my opinion,” he said in confessional, adding that he hoped “everyone can move on” from the disagreement.
This isn't the first time Kris' toyboy has landed himself in hot water with the Kar-Jenner clan. If you cast your mind back to June last year, you might remember the KUWTK episode in which Corey and Khloe Kardashian tore into each other after Kanye West sent him a message, questioning why none of their family had met his relatives.
“Kanye texts Corey something along the lines of, ‘Look, we don’t know you, we’ve never met any of your family members,’" Kim told Khloe, Kourtney and Scott in her mother's kitchen.
While the future lawyer admitted her husband's approach was brash, she agreed with the sentiment.
“Of course we’ve all felt that way and thought that, but for Kanye to just so bluntly say that to him — I feel like that was the wrong choice to make at that time.”
Jumping to her brother-in-law's defence, Kourtney said, “He is very paternal, though. He tries to take care of all us.”
Then, Khloe went in on him.
“Kanye’s delivery wasn’t great, but the essence of what he said is true,” she began. “Corey does tend to be pretty secretive and that does have me pretty guarded. We don’t know Corey like that.”
The Good American co-founder even admitted she didn't think her mum's relationship with Corey would last.
“After my mum got her divorce, I was like, ‘Okay, this probably isn’t going to last,’ ” she began. “I just didn’t feel the need to get that connected or attached. Then when I saw time progressing and the relationship was still there, we tried to get to know him, but he has not been receptive in this whole thing. So, me and all of the kids, we just…we've been more on guard with Corey."
As expected, Kris took offence to the "rude" comments, asking her children not to "talk s**t to Kanye" about her partner anymore.
Tension reached an all-time high later in the episode when Kris invited Khloe and her best friend Malika Haqq out to Palm Springs for a weekend — but failed to mention that Corey would be there, too. After an incredibly uncomfortable trip, Kris decided something had to be said.
“I think it’s really unfair to direct this attitude towards Corey,” Kris said. “Her behaviour is just uncalled for. … It’s really important for Khloe to understand that she really needs to get on my bandwagon because Corey is a part of the family, he isn’t going anywhere and she needs to be nice. Nobody really slows down enough to take a look at it from a bird’s eye view of my life,” she said to Khloe. “I want you to recognise that when you do question my relationship with Corey, it isn’t okay and it hurts feelings. I think what you guys don’t realise is Corey is really taking care of me like no one ever has in my entire life.”
