Kourtney Kardashian broke down in tears as she slammed sister Kim for 'copying' her wedding in her collaboration with fashion house Dolce & Gabbana and prioritising business deals over family.
Kim's deal has raked up some good-old family drama during Thursday’s episode of Hulu’s The Kardashians, in an episode titled 'Ciao, Kim'.
The entrepreneurial pair came to sartorial blows as the Poosh founder accused her Skims-founder sibling of 'copying' the vibe of her style-forward 2022 Italian wedding, which was hosted and designed by the designers behind the D&G brand.
Rather than going straight to the source, big sister Kourt ran her mouth to baby sister Kendall, telling her she felt 'hurt' when Kim partnered with the Italian fashion house just four short months after her wedding to Travis Barker.
“So Kim is in Milan, you know, doing this whole Kim/Dolce & Gabbana, Ciao, Kim, living la dolce vita, whatever,” Kourtney said.
In her May 2022 wedding in Portofino, Italy, the bride wore a short, lingerie-inspired and corseted D&G white dress paired with a personalised lace veil that featured a nod to her hubby's head tattoo.
“It’s not like I did their campaign and she did their campaign right after," she confided. "It’s my actual wedding. That wasn’t a business deal for me. I did it because it felt really personal.”
She continued that Kim could have taken her pick of other 'opportunities' to collaborate with alternative brands, noting that taking the D&G deal took 'precedence over hurting your sister'.
“It’s just legit copying my wedding,” she concluded.
And she had receipts: pulling out style notes from Dolce & Gabbana’s nineties and noughties archives that featured both in her wedding outfit and Kim's collection.
Kourt's feelings also stemmed from the fact that both momager Kris and Kim neglected to mention the upcoming deal.
“While we were at our wedding, I guess Kim was having these conversations with Dolce that I didn’t know about, and she had called me and said she was doing a Skims collab with Dolce & Gabbana,” Kourtney shared.
The truth came to light when Kim said her collab with Dolce was 'not with Skims anymore but they’re trying to figure it out'.
Kendall was Switzerland, who said democratically: “I see both sides. I could see how you could feel like you had your toes stepped on," stating the importance she places in 'individuality and like, knowing your place and then knowing your sister’s place and just being, like, smart about it'.
Kourtney then claims Kim hadn't been 'happy' at the wedding and was 'spiralling'.
“I think she sees everything that I had there and takes it for her own and she doesn’t even see it," Kourtney complained. “She sees it as, like, the dollar signs. I think she's really driven and doesn't know what's driving her.
"When it bumps into my life, that's when I'm affected. Otherwise I'm like, everyone do whatever makes you happy. It's healthy to have your own identity."
Kendall wasn't taking sides: “As sisters, we also have to understand [that] when someone has a job or someone’s getting paid a lot of money to do something, we have to try and see where this can work for both of us, I guess.”
Kris also claimed she was trying 'to stay really neutral' when Kourtney refused to post images of promotional 'Ciao, Kim' t-shirts.
Clapping back, Kim later claimed that she 'couldn’t have been more mindful' and avoided some looks 'out of respect for Kourtney'.
The Kardashians S3 is available to stream on Disney+ in the UK.
