Will the world’s most fiery family come to blows this Xmas?
It’s the most wonderful time of the year – unless you’re a member of the Kardashian family, who are heading for tears and tantrums over the turkey. It should be a really special time with the recent arrival of baby Saint, but Kim, 35, and husband Kanye West, 38, are apparently at loggerheads over how much of their newborn to share with the rest of the world.
Despite insisting that there’ll be no footage of the labour shown on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, in contrast to North’s birth, we can reveal there is a secret video – and Kim and Kanye are allegedly having furious rows over what to do with it. ‘Kim and Kanye are fighting over the video,’ we’re told. ‘He expects it to be kept only for personal use, but Kim wants to sell it to the highest bidder.’
But only if it’s been highly edited, of course. Kim doesn’t want any shots of her sweating or looking less than glamorous but she knows she’s the star of the show and is keen to let some of their intimate moments go public. Momager Kris Jenner is said to be right behind her – but Kris is also busy fighting another battle… with herself.
Kris vs Caitlyn
Still struggling with how to handle her ex-husband Bruce’s gender transformation into Caitlyn, Kris and Caitlyn sniped at each other all through daughter Kylie’s 18th birthday party in August. When Caitlyn, 66, turned up late, Kris snapped: ‘Caitlyn was probably working on her look,’ – only to be slammed by this zinger from her ex: ‘It’s a woman’s prerogative to be a little late.’
A source close to the family tells us: ‘Kris has taken Caitlyn’s whole transition extremely personally. She spent so many years calling the shots when Caitlyn was Bruce, so it’s been tough adapting to the power shift and having to put up with her choices. If there’s one thing Kris hates, it’s not being in charge. Now, all of a sudden, she’s dealing with an empowered and super-strong personality who stands up to her and does exactly what she wants.’
Having already slogged through Thanksgiving together at Khloé’s, Kris, 60, isn’t sure how much more she can take. ‘She knows she’s got to put up and shut up, but it’s really starting to get to her,’ our Kardashian insider reveals. ‘It’s incredibly difficult for her to be in the same room as Caitlyn. She does her best to keep the peace for the sake of the kids, but the moment she’s alone she breaks down. It’s totally messing with her head.’
Will (Tyga) blood be spilled?
Kris and Caitlyn aren’t the only ones who won’t be pulling any Christmas crackers together. Kendall and Kylie are much more likely to be pulling each other’s hair if recent reports are anything to go by. Ever since Kendall, 20, posted a raunchy snap of herself flipping the bird on Kylie’s on-off boyfriend Tyga’s 26th birthday, things have deteriorated fast. When Kylie took Tyga back, Kendall was apparently furious, believing the rapper isn’t good enough for her little sister. Kylie’s response? To post a picture on Snapchat of her and her beau’s legs entwined with the caption: ‘Everyone needs to chill’. Yikes. If Tyga turns up on Christmas Day, he’d better be carrying a big plate of conciliatory mince pies.
The return of ‘Lord’ Disick?
The ghost of Christmas past could be returning this year in the form of Kourtney’s ex Scott Disick. On their Instagram and Twitter feeds, Kourtney, 36, and Scott, 32, have dropped more than a few hints at a reconciliation, with cosy movie nights, new watches and gingerbread houses on display. While their three kids will be thrilled if their dad joins them for Christmas, party-loving Scott will have to be on his best behaviour to avoid an awkward showdown.
And amid all this drama, we bet Khloé, 31, will be counting the days until she can kiss goodbye to 2015. Contracting an infection while holding a bedside vigil at estranged husband Lamar Odom’s bedside was the final kick in the teeth and she admitted on Twitter it’s been the ‘hands down worst year of my life lol’. Let’s hope the family can work out their differences over some eggnog and a good game
