Fight to the death, like sisters. Kourtney and Kim Kardashian are still in the thick of ongoing relationship reparations because Kourtney did not attend Kim's annual birthday extravaganza. On Friday night, Kim celebrated her 43rd birthday, hitting the town with fellow A-listers Kylie Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Sofia Vergara. Kim stunned in a sizzling red dress that showed off her baby bump, while Hailey looked effortlessly glamorous in a brown leather skirt and coat. Kim's sisters, Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, and mom Kris Jenner, were all in attendance, but Kourtney was noticeably absent.
Kourtney and Kim's feud has been a topic of public fascination since the early days of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. Over the years, the sisters have engaged in numerous heated arguments, culminating in yelling, cursing, and even physical altercations. In recent years, fans have speculated that the sisters' feud has intensified since Kourtney married Travis Barker in 2022. This was seemingly confirmed in a preview clip for the latest season of The Kardashians, in which Kourtney slammed Kim for having "no respect" or "boundaries."
Kim has addressed the feud several times, stating that while she and her sister may not always agree, they ultimately respect each other's space. However, the ongoing tension between the two sisters remains a source of intrigue for fans of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. 2009: Kim and Kourtney physically alter over a misplaced designer handbag. Notable moments of tension include 2010, when Kourtney accused Kim of being "fake" and "phony" during a heated argument, 2012 when Kim called Kourtney "the least exciting to look at" out of all the sisters, and 2015 when Kourtney slammed Kim for being "materialistic" and "obsessed with fame."
However, things are on the mend. Kourtney may not have attended her party, but she shared a heartwarming message on Instagram for her birthday. In the story, Kourtney expressed her gratitude for Kim's willingness to listen to her "crazy ideas" over the years, even acknowledging the sibling rivalry between them in their younger days. "Happy happy birthday to my first sister," Kourtney wrote. "The joys of sisterhood. I love you deeply, forever and always. May God bless this year with love and happiness and abundant joy."
