Say what you want about the Kardashians – they live and die by the motto that blood is thicker than water. When you cross one Kardashian, you’ve crossed them all. Just ask Caitlyn Jenner, whose book, "The Secrets Of My Life," was released today. The memoir cost her big time, her ties to the family are strained if not cut completely.
Just about anyone who has ever betrayed Kris and her offspring – that includes people who have marital or baby bonds to the clan – have learned that the wrath of the Kardashians runs deep. Best case scenario, they ice you out of the show. Worst, they ice you out of their lives.
Let’s take a walk down memory lane – baseball bat in tow – to see who has dared to defy this family, and are still shuddering from the fallout.
Kim Kardashian married the basketball star in 2011. She filed for divorce 72 days later, leaving the two engaged in a long battle that finally ended in 2013. Two years after that, Kim’s sister Khloe slammed Kris H. in book form! In her memoir Strong Looks Better Naked, Khloe shares that Kris H. was her least favorite ex of Kim’s, stating, “He didn't treat Kim with respect. He wasn't kind, and, unfortunately, he didn't get my point, which I guess is one of the many reasons he is an ex.”
He has three beautiful children with the eldest Kardashian daughter, but Lord Disick may never truly be a part of the family. Kourtney called it quits with Scott in 2015, after the another round of allegations of his cheating and substance abuse surfaced. This past January, Scott tried to make things right by asking Kourtney to marry him, according to Us Weekly. Not only did she say “no,” leaving him hurt and embarrassed, he got into a heated row with Kim and mom Kris after he reportedly brought a girl back to the Costa Rican hotel where they were vacationing, which ended in him sitting in front of the fam and crying, like he was facing a jury in court.
Kim and Chyna used to be besties – until little Kardashian sister Kylie started dating Blac Chyna’s ex, rapper Tyga. While Kim admitted she felt sorry for the then-heartbroken Chyna, “I had no choice but to take my sister’s side,” she said on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians last May. Chyna thought she had the last laugh when she got pregnant with Kardashian brother Rob’s baby, their 5-month-old daughter Dream. But the Kardashians still didn’t let her fully in the family fold. They threw a baby shower and didn’t put Chyna on the guest list. They also blocked her from trademarking the name Angela Kardashian.
His philandering and drug abuse led Khloe to file for divorce in 2013, and Khloe had no problem parading her next string of boyfriends, including basketball star James Harden and French Montana, right in front of Lamar (remember when she, French and Lamar had a run-in at the same L.A. nightclub in 2014?)
While Khloe did rush to Lamar’s side after a near-fatal overdose in a Nevada brothel back in October 2015, it wasn’t enough to bring him back into the fold. Khloe, who had put their divorce on hold after his accident, legally finalized the divorce in December 2016. And of course, every sordid detail of Lamar’s drug issues played out on KUWTK.
Yes, that silky-voiced crooner of holiday classics. Back in 2011 as Kim was divorcing ex-husband Kris Humphries, Michael told an iHeart Radio Live concert crowd stating that Kim would be taking the stage. He then revealed he was fooling around, adding, “that bitch is never coming on my stage.” Fast forward to Michael’s Christmas in Hollywood special 2015, where Kylie Jenner was a guest – and where Michael got confronted by momager Kris. She gave him “a ton of sh** about," he admitted on an episode of Watch What Happens Live. “They weren't happy about it."
Yes, the father of Kylie and Kendall has even felt the cold shoulder of the Kardashians. Revealing her transition to the world put a strain on the relationship between herself and the eldest Kardashian daughters. Last Father’s Day, Caitlyn only spent it with his youngest daughter Kylie. Sources say that the other sisters felt Caitlyn had not been fully transparent with ex-wife Kris about her transgender experience, and have chosen to keep their distance. In other words, iced out like the others.
