Family at War
Battles break out as Kylie Jenner’s shocking baby news turns the Kardashians
Kylie Jenner’s shocking pregnancy news is tearing the Kardashian family apart.
Kylie Jenner had some monumental news to share — and she was terrified. When it came time for the 20-year-old to let her family know she was expecting a baby with 25-year-old rapper Travis Scott, she nearly froze. “She told her mother first, then her sisters, then her father,” says a Kardashian insider. “She was scared to death to tell her family.”
Her instincts were spot-on. Instead of being met with hugs and joy, Kylie’s announcement sparked a Kardashian brawl, Life & Style has learned, pitting family members against each other. The Kardashians like Kylie’s boyfriend of six months, says the insider, but “this pregnancy has caused so much friction in the family. With all their opposing opinions and feelings, everyone has been at war.”
FEUDS, INSULTS AND DRAMA
Khloé, 33, found out she and beau Tristan Thompson were expecting around the same time. But she’s been trying to have a baby for so long, her family is overjoyed by the news. With Kylie barely out of her teens, though, no one’s celebrating. Instead, a battle promptly started between Kylie’s parents. While Kris, 61, was upset at first, she quickly found a silver lining. “She sees dollar signs and ratings,” says the insider. “There are a lot of money-making options.” That way of thinking infuriated her ex, Caitlyn, 67. “Caitlyn has in no way accepted that having a baby at this age is a good idea,” the insider says. ”
Most of Kylie’s siblings are siding with Caitlyn. Mom-of-three Kourtney, 38, “was very upset,” says the
insider. “She knows the time and work it takes to have children and feels Kylie is far too young. She tried to explain how it would affect her life.” Model Kendall, 21, was even more irate. “She told Kylie she was making a mistake,” says the insider, which led to an epic fight.
While Kim, 36, denied a report she was upset by the baby news, one source tells Life & Style she did react selfishly at first. She’s expecting a third baby with Kanye West via surrogate, and “she hates when Kylie steals the limelight,” the source says. “She felt this was her time to shine.”
The only one truly ecstatic for Kylie is Khloé. “She’s excited they’re having babies at the same time,” says the insider, who says they’re roughly four months along. Kylie shares her excitement, and she’s upset her family isn’t being more supportive. “She’s fighting back,” says the insider, “saying her baby will be loved — no matter what.”
