While it's unclear who started and later finished the fight, this isn't the first time Kris' toyboy has landed himself in hot water with the Kar-Jenner clan. During an episode of KUWTK last year, 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 Khloé, 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, Khloé 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 Khloé and her best friend Malika Haqq out to Palm Springs for a weekend — but failed to mention that Gamble 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 behavior is just uncalled for. … It’s really important for Khloé 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.”
