Kris Jenner is not begging Kourtney Kardashian to take charge of the â€śKardashian empire,â€ť nor has the family matriarch stated her oldest daughter is now her â€śfavoriteâ€ť child, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can correct this claims. The momager fully intends to continue to oversee the various businesses of her kids and she openly admits she favors different children at different times.
In a new article titled, â€śKris Begs Kourtney To Take Charge Of The Kardashian Empire After Kim & Khloeâ€™s Messy Scandals,â€ť RadarOnline writes, â€śMove over, Kim, mom has a new favorite.â€ť According to the website, amidst the issues Kim and Khloe are having with their partners, Jennerâ€™s new favorite is Kourtney. A so-called â€śfamily insiderâ€ť is quoted as saying, â€śSheâ€™s the go-to of all the sisters right now, for big picture decisions.â€ť
The same unnamed and ill-informed source maintains, â€śKhloeâ€™s in the doghouse for sticking with Tristan [Thompson], while Kimâ€™s very focused on her and Kanye [West]â€™s dramas.â€ť As for Kendall and Kylie Jenner, the alleged tipster maintains, â€śThe other girls are too young or inexperienced business-wise.â€ť Instead, the supposed â€śinsiderâ€ť offers, â€śKris is thrilled with Kourtneyâ€™s work.â€ť
Actually, the last time Jenner declared a â€śfavorite,â€ť it was Khloe. In an interview with the Australiaâ€™s â€śKyle & Jackie Oâ€ť radio show,â€ť Jenner said Khloeâ€™s â€śon the favorite child list,â€ť noting how the two have recently been â€śbonding and shopping for the new baby.â€ť However, the momager clarified that the â€śfavoriteâ€ť title â€śchanges every dayâ€ť and â€śdepends on the day since thereâ€™s a lot of dynamics in a mother/child relationship.â€ť
As for Jenner having problems with Kim and Khloe because of their men, that too is entirely inaccurate. Far from Khloe being â€śin the doghouse,â€ť the family matriarch has been extremely supportive of the new mom. When asked on Friday about the scandal with Thompson, Jenner told Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that Khloeâ€™s â€śfiguring it out one day at a time.â€ť and that sheâ€™s â€śthere to support my kids no matter what happens.â€ť â€śKhloe is amazing. Iâ€™m so proud of that kid,â€ť added Jenner.
In that same episode, the momager didnâ€™t seem too fazed either by her son-in-law. When the subject of West came up, Jenner explained to DeGeneres, â€śKanye has a lot of love for all of you, all of his fansâ€¦ He always does things with really good intentions.â€ť
So now that itâ€™s established that Jenner changes favorites on a near daily basis and that sheâ€™s supports Khloe and Kim and her other children â€śno matter what happens,â€ť letâ€™s look at the claim about her begging Kourtney to take over the â€śKardashian empire.â€ť Frankly, thereâ€™s absolutely nothing to support that. As for assertion that Kendall and Kylie are too â€śinexperienced business-wiseâ€ť to take control, ironically the two youngest family members are arguably the most successful right now. A few months ago, Forbes reported Kendall was the highest-paid model with earnings of $22 million in 2017, while Kylieâ€™s cosmeticâ€™s company is on track to becoming a $1 billion business.
More significantly, E! News published an article on Thursday titled, â€śMomager Mastermind: How Kris Jenner Built an Empire That Eats Controversy for Breakfast,â€ť and not a single phrase in the nearly 3,000-word story mentioned anything about Kourtney being her motherâ€™s â€śfavoriteâ€ť or taking over the reigns of managing the family. This isnâ€™t the first time one of the siblings has been wrongly named to be taking control of the â€śKardashian Empire.â€ť In April 2017, Gossip Cop busted RadarOnlineâ€™s sister outlet Star when it falsely contended Kim was going to replace Jenner as the familyâ€™s manager. At the time, her rep told us it was inaccurate. Much like that article, everything in the new story about Kourtney and Jenner is provably untrue.
