The adult Kardashians are no strangers to drama, and it looks like their children are following in their high-heeled footsteps.
Kourtney Kardashian revealed in a clip from the September 22 episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she no longer has a nanny following an incident during which her daughter scratched her nanny’s face. So let’s unpack:
“She said P was really upset,” Kourtney shared, referring to her daughter Penelope. “She was putting her in the car, and she scratched her in the face. But P can be out of control. I think she almost, like, blacks out and does these wild things.”
Kourney wasn’t alone in her nanny issues, though; Kim quickly chimed in — sister solidarity! — with a story about her daughter North informing her nanny that she was fired. “North tried to bite my nanny and said, ‘I don’t want a nanny anymore. You can go home,’ and I said, ‘You can’t fire our nanny.’”
As Kim encouraged Kourtney to reach out to the nanny and apologize, Kourtney’s mother, Kris said this behavior should be stopped as soon as possible: “I have six kids. Not once in my entire life did anyone ever have a complaint like this. We need to take care if this before it gets too far out of control.”
Kourtney, who also shares children Mason, age 9, and Reign, age 4, with Scott Disick, seemed discouraged about how to discipline her daughter, saying, “There’s nothing I can take away from [Penelope] physically that she will care about it. Mason I can take [things] away [and] he cares. Penelope doesn’t care. Kids are different.”
The discussion quickly progressed into an argument, as Jenner’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble said he would spank Penelope if she scratched him and Disick responded, saying, “What are you talking about? You’d whip my daughter’s a** if she scratched you? A little six-year-old girl?…You’re not going to beat my little daughter!”
Of course, the lives of Kourtney, Kim and Khloe are highly publicized pretty much no matter what they do (or don’t do) when it comes to nannies: According to E Online,Khloe was recently shamed online for employing a nanny, to which she replied, “I can go anywhere and everywhere with whom I choose to. I choose to treat everybody like family that is in my house. I choose to invite whoever wants to come to fun outings.” Kim, who recently went on a family vacation to Wyoming, has shared that she was no longer employing a nanny due to husband Kanye West’s “no help kick.”
