The Kardashians have no fear when it comes to sporting a flirty bathing suit look. All three sisters have shared numerous pool and beach selfies showing off their very cute bikinis, one-pieces, and other trendy styles. Some looks are stronger than others and we decided to round up the Kardashians’ very best bathing suit looks. The sisters have always been at the cutting edge of fashion, often creating trends by wearing a style or unique look. Further, most of these photos are from their various vacations so it’s wonderful to see them looking and feeling their best in the sun.
If you’re looking for some bathing suit inspiration or are just a big fan of the Kardashians, you will get a lot from the following pictures which feature the sisters in a variety of poses that range from saucy to silly. The one thing that all of these images have in common, however, is that they showcase the cutest swimwear they have taken pictures in. So, let’s get rolling with these cute bathing suit looks!
Check Out The Most Enviable Kardashian Bathing Suit Looks Through the Years:
Slaying In Silver
Kim Kardashian knows a thing or two about serving a showstopping look. In this silver-grey bikini, we find this celebrity mom soaking up some rays. As one does, she decided to strike a dramatic pose for this photo. What a win!
“If I don’t feel confident about my body, I’m not going to sit at home and feel sorry for myself and not do something about it,” Kim once said. “It’s all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it’s fitness or whatever. It’s about getting up, motivating yourself, and just doing it.”
Kourtney’s Got the Patterns
One thing you’ll quickly realize as you scroll through this list of the Kardashians in their bathing suits is that these sisters tend to go with monochrome suits that are void of patterns. So, it’s refreshing to see Kourtney Kardashian step out of her comfort zone and try a suit that’s a bit funkier. We think it’s a blast!
“Fashion is so subjective, and I think it should be playful,” Kourtney shared of her sartorial ethos.
Making a Splash
Kim usually favors a two-piece over one but when she goes with one she does not play. How about this slightly peachy nude swimsuit? We think it’s a real winner and that a lot of folks would look great in something similar.
“Obviously, as you grow up, no one’s ever 100 percent proud of every decision that they’ve made, and that’s OK,” Kim said of growing up and dealing with life. “I think as long as you learn from your mistakes and don’t make them over and over again, you’re on the right path.”
Magnificent in Magenta
Well, hello, Khloe! Khloe Kardashian is active on social media but her frequency is a fraction of Kourtney or Kim’s posts. That doesn’t mean that she has not shared some amazing swimsuit looks over the years. Here’s one of her latest looks that is so beautiful it just might take you out!
“I’m proud of myself,” Khloe said of her self-image. “I could break and go get all this plastic surgery and get my nose fixed and get lipo or do whatever, but I haven’t chosen to do that because I know I’m a great person. I’m pretty d**n hot if you ask me.”
Beautiful In Brown
Kim loves a nude tone and she wears them often when it comes to bathing suits. This lovely two-piece with a bit more support up top is a killer look. If you’re after an understated swim look, consider following Kim’s path and try on some warm nude tones that look excellent on your skin.
“You make mistakes, but I don’t have any regrets,” Kim once shared. “I’m the kind of person who takes responsibility for it and deals with it. I learn from everything I do. I work very hard, I have so many things going on in my life. Get to know me and see who I am.”
A Touch of Lace
Here’s one of our very favorite Kardashian swimwear looks. Kourtney is wearing a stringy bikini that has an amazingly dramatic lace-like detail. We also are treated to a lovely green, emerald color here that looks so rich.
“I’ve been wearing lipstick since I was in 7th grade,” Kourtney said of expressing herself through fashion. “That was our form of daring self-expression, because we had to wear uniforms in school. It made our teachers so angry.”
Tan In the Sand
Khloe looks so great next to her daughter, True, who is building a sand castle. The clean lines of this suit make it such a sharp-looking choice. The two-piece seems to mirror the earthy sand color that they’re sitting on.
“Not to be vain, but I have nice long legs, so I like to accentuate them,” she said, giving her beauty advice. “Find what part of your body you love most – it can be your arms, your chest, your legs – and emphasize that.”
All Things Gold
Kourtney looks fantastic in this fashionable, mellow gold swimsuit with sequins. Who doesn’t love a little sparkle? It’s probably the most embellished bathing suit we’ve ever seen any Kardashian wear. As they say, if you’ve got it flaunt it. And, flaunt you shall in a sparkling bikini!
“I’m five feet tall – I’m very petite – so for me, if I’m wearing a skirt or dress, it needs to be short, or else it makes me look frumpy,” Kourtney has said about dressing for her height. “I need to wear either something really short or a maxi dress; anything in between just looks weird.”
Wow! Khloe looks stunning in this neon yellow, strappy bikini. If you’ve got a deeper skin tone, bright colors like yellow and pink are really going to pop. We totally love this look from Khloe that’s complete with matching nails.
“I just think that knowing about your body at any age, whether it’s educating yourself on fertility, getting mammograms, going through puberty – whatever it may be, is really important,” Khloe said of knowing her body. “I just really encourage women empowerment and being comfortable talking about these issues.”
Here’s a fun change of pace for Kim. She’s sporting an off-white bikini that could be described as pearl or oyster in tone. Doesn’t Kim look radiant in this photo? We’d like to experience whatever sort of joy she’s got going right there at the beach.
“If I feel something, it’s how I feel. I never say, ‘I feel this way, so you should feel that way.’ Not that there’s anything wrong with it, but I just am who I am,” Kim explained of her worldview. “But, yeah. I think you would call me a feminist.”
How about this top? It’s a bold move to go to the beach in a bandeau bikini top and Kourtney appears pretty fearless about it. We’re not sure what material this suit is made of but it has this great shine quality to it that feels leather-inspired. When in doubt, black is always a great decision.
“I remember, when I went away to college at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, my aunt sent me a book with the rules of being a Southern Belle,” Kourtney Kardashian once shared. “One of the rules was to never wear white after Labor Day. Fashion has a lot to do with confidence and making up your own rules.”
Hot, Hot Pink
Khloe truly looks remarkable in these neon swimsuits. We find her this time in pink instead of yellow and now we don’t know which one we like better. Khloe did not forget to accessorize her swim looks either. She’s paired some chunky bracelets as well as body necklaces with this suit for a put-together look.
“We’re all our own worst critics and so hard on ourselves, but for me, my biggest insecurity is my arms,” she once said of her body. “I just hate the tops of them. I work out and they still never look good enough for me. So, over the years I’ve learned to dress to make myself feel better.”
Back to Black
Does a hot tub situation affect what type of swimsuit you wear? Kim decided to go with a bandeau in a nice matte black. There’s nothing flashy here, just a solid choice that looks fabulous on Kim.
“I’m just really supportive of everyone – even though I believe that things should be equal, people have different circumstances in their life that have taught them to be who they are,” Kim Kardashian once said. “Even if I don’t agree with them, I don’t judge them. I’m a really non-judgmental person.”
Straps Gone Wild
If you’ve ever wondered if a red bikini really makes a statement, we’ve got an answer for you. Kourtney absolutely stuns in this bright red, strappy bikini. The straps have been crossed before being secured behind the neck for a look that really moves the eye.
“I remember playing in my mom’s closet with Kim as little girls – we had this game we played, I was Donna Karan, and she was my assistant, and I was really bossy,” Kourtney Kardashian once shared of her early days as a boss.
In Love with Lilac
Khloe is not sleeping on the dazzling body jewelry! We find her again with some dangling bits of metallic beauty paired with this purple bikini. If you’re not afraid of color, you can go with cooler tones for a refreshing look that looks juicy all summer long.
“The bikini waxing, after we go there you can’t turn back,” Khloe Kardashian once said of her personal grooming routine.
She’s Back In Tan
Kim returns to her go-to color for bathing suits, nude. This swimsuit has a bralette style top which is great for women with larger breasts. How do you feel about all of her nude swimsuits? Are they too neutral that they are boring? We like the look but we can understand if folks are left wanting some more color.
“I think that there’s the Kim Kardashian brand and the Kardashian brand,” Kim once revealed. “I think they blend together, but I have different qualities or interests that my sisters might not be so into.”
That Little Pink Number
Kourtney has traded in the ultra-sexy strappy bikinis for a modest swimsuit in the above picture. We think that the pink is just so flirty and playful. While we know that pink is not going to be best for every skin tone, we do think it looks great on most folks. When in doubt, get in touch with your inner girly girl.
“Motherhood has most definitely changed me and my life,” Kourtney Kardashian once said after becoming a mom. “It’s so crazy how drastic even the small details change – in such an amazing way. Even silly things, like the fact that all of my pictures on my cell phone used to be of me at photo shoots – conceited, I know! – but now every single picture on my phone is of Mason.”
Off to the Races
Here’s a fun one from Kim. We’re not sure what you would call that sort of zip-up top but it does look very sporty and cute. It’s a departure for Kim who usually strays from color. Would you wear this sort of scuba-inspired top?
“I always say you shouldn’t weigh yourself,” Kim Kardashian once shared. “I don’t even have a set of scales in my house.”
Of the three Kardashian sisters, Kourtney is the one to most embrace a one-piece suit. We think they look so elegant and timeless. Sure, Kourtney has a few bikinis in her closet but she will bust out a one-piece faster than Kim or Khloe.
“I am obsessed with my sisters,” Kourtney once said of her siblings. “Being the oldest, I probably just have that in me. But I also think I am the youngest sometimes. We all have moments when we are the maternal one of the group.”
Wow! How fun is this shimmering, rainbow fabric? It’s one of our favorite Kardashian swimsuits on this list. It’s playful and cheerful without being garish or over-the-top. This sparkling silver suit is really speaking to us and we hope to see more like it the next time we’re at the beach.
“One of the biggest struggles of my life is my weight,” Khloe Kardashian once revealed. “My weight is always going up and down, and I’m always fighting that, and I think that no matter what I do, I’m never going to look good enough to everybody else.”
Straps on Straps
Here’s Kim in a black bikini once more but this one has more visual interest thanks to the strap situation Kim has created around her body. It looks sexy and chic without being too overtly showy. We’ve said it once but we’ll say it again, black is where it’s at.
“I love meeting new people and telling them about my stories and my projects that I am working on,” the entrepreneur once said.
How delightful is this minty green swimsuit? One thing is certain, Kourtney is not afraid to play with color. The color reads as energetic and cool. It also makes Kourtney’s tan look even deeper. Pair your pale green suit with some bright sunglasses and you’ve got yourself a little fashion moment, mama.
“I’ve learned to set boundaries and know when to say, ‘I just need to rest.’ I’m good at listening to what my body’s telling me,” Kourtney Kardashian said of being in tune with her body.
She Said ‘Chanel’
Here’s a fun one for Khloe who looks so happy in this bright pink bikini from Chanel. While we’re certain many of the suits on this list are from designer labels, this is the only one with branding imprinted on it. She’s serving beachside luxury.
“I don’t think anybody should ever take their life for being bullied,” she said on a serious note. “But if it wasn’t for my family… and my circle of friends, I could definitely see why someone would see it doesn’t get any better than this, but it does. Life is so beautiful.”
This is barely a one-piece swimsuit but technically it is. Kim decided that this sleek, black suit that reveals the torso and back would like great with some platinum locks. We think it really looks fantastic. We’re not sure why she’s working out like this but we’re here for the swimsuits, right?
“If I look at the message I’m portraying, I think it definitely is to be who you are, but be your best you,” Kim said of what she wants people to take away from her.
Dots and Straps
Kourtney does not always play it safe. In fact, she does seem to try more styles and patterns than her sisters combined. We find a deep burgundy bikini that is not short on straps or dots in this look. How do you feel about it? Is there too much strap action going on or did she nail it?
“I am always trying to evolve, so I like to read parenting books and things like that,” Kourtney Kardashian once said of continuing to learn and better herself.
If you can’t tell who you are looking at here, it’s none other than Khloe Kardashian. She’s struck a dramatic pose to show off her leopard-printed bikini. It’s playful and sexy and just totally purrfect. Animal prints might seem taboo to you but they can still look classy and elegant when done right.
“Leopard print has been my thing forever!” Khloe once admitted. “When I was a teenager my entire room was done in leopard print – it’s timeless, chic, and always in style. When in doubt… leopard!”
There’s a lot of sun bouncing off of Ms. Kim Kardashian in this swimsuit photo. Between the mirror-like frames of her glasses to her oiled-up body, there’s a lot of shine to enjoy. We don’t often see Kim in many colors so this is definitely a statement piece for her. Did this look leave you blinded by the light?
“Everything family does is a reflection on the other people,” Kim once said. It’s a pretty fitting quote for this look!
This is another photo of Khloe and, again, she’s in a deep pose that might make it hard for you to identify her. There’s a subtle, metallic appeal to this handsome swimsuit. It’s understated and elegant and a solid suit for everyday fun in the sun.
“I’m a really fun aunt, so I hope I’m going to be a fun mom! I like to have fun and be silly and not take myself too seriously with the kids, so I hope that will translate when I actually have my own,” Khloe once said before giving birth to True.
Kim Finally Finds a Print
In one of the very few swimsuits Kim has shown us, we find a lovely print on the fabric that looks like mellow tie-dye. Gold, black, and cream all look fantastic together and make her skin look even more deeply tanned. This is one of the most causal-looking suits that we’ve ever seen Kim pictured in.
“I’ve always been the type to fall in love fast and, with every boyfriend, I plan out my wedding in my head,” she once shared. We love a romantic at heart!
Finally, we leave you with Kourtney in this metallic, silver one-piece swimsuit. It’s still sexy and sleek but reads as more modest. This is such a sporty look that is perfect for a day spent out on a boat (or yacht if you’re the Kardashians).
“We do have a two against one rule. If two sisters feel very strongly about a design or trend we want to try, we go for it,” Khloe once shared about how she and her sisters collaborate.
If you liked these Kardashian bathing suit looks, you might also enjoy Kylie Jenner‘s bikini photos. She launched a swimwear line recently and has been photographed often in pieces from her own brand as well as other bikinis and swimsuits. Take a look at Kylie having fun in the sun below!
Kylie Jenner Launched Kylie Swim!
Jenner made the announcement with a post that shows a bunch of different people in her new Kylie Swim line. Getting excited for the launch of these very sexy and fun suits?
She Also Announced with This Bikini Snap
Here is one of the Kylie Jenner bikinis we can expect to find in the collection. Can you say, “pink lemonade”? Let’s take a look at some earlier photos of Kylie sporting swimwear to discover what could be coming our way soon.
Glittering in Gold
One thing we noticed about a Kylie Jenner bikini is that she really likes metallic suits. We find a golden one here but we’ll show some other examples on this list as well!
This Kylie Jenner bikini simultaneously looks like crochet and metallic armor. It’s a really cute look. Should we expect it to be part of Kylie Swim? Only time will tell!
Bold & Black
Sometimes it’s a black bikini day, right? We really love this one Kylie is wearing underneath a shower. We hope that it felt as refreshing for Jenner as it looks.
Silver In the Sun
We told you that a Kylie Jenner bikini is more often metallic than not. We think this silver one is flattering.
More of the Silver
Here’s another look at the Kylie Jenner bikini in silver. Notice that she is wearing a lovely dangling, silver earring to keep things classy.
Have you ever worn such an elaborate necklace while in a swimsuit? Maybe we should give it a try.
Here’s a Kylie Jenner bikini in front of some truly breathtaking scenery. We’d probably pose the same way in such a beautiful place. This checkered pink and red one is so cute!
How sweet is this chocolate Kylie Jenner bikini? We think the color looks excellent and many other folks would love to have it as well.
As One Does
Here’s the same bikini but out in the wild. There’s something so sleek about going neutral and monochromatic.
One the Other Hand
Neon yellow has its merits as well! We find a Kylie Jenner bikini that evokes images of a highlighter. If you love color, we can almost guarantee you’ll find some yellow Kylie Swim bikinis!
With a Leather Jacket
We find Jenner experimenting with some bikini coverups in the next two photos. Do you often pair your bikini with a leather jacket and gloves?
Here’s a look that’s likely to appeal to more folks. The swirling green and blue waves of this Kylie Jenner bikini have a retro vibe that makes us think of fabrics used in the 1960s.
Here’s another Kylie Jenner bikini and we guess she did not want to include her face in the photo? We guess she really did want to show off this unique blue bikini.
Back to Basics
How cute is the belt that goes with this Kylie Jenner bikini? We think it’s an interesting concept that we hope to see more of from Kylie Swim.
Does Jenner’s pose feel a touch overwrought to you or is that just us? She’s serving drama, there’s no doubt about it. We would have never thought to pair nude, pink, and green together, but that’s why we’re not Kylie.
This Kylie Jenner bikini seems to feature some sort of pearl or metal balls up the straps. It’s an amazing look that reads as decadent and a touch extravagant.
Another Peach Bikini
What a beautiful photo! Jenner looks fabulous in this peach bikini that really reflects the warm colors of the setting sun.
Here’s a light khaki color bikini. Jenner really cranked up the drama for this photo of her emerging from a swimming pool. It looks rather dark out and we’re not sure if the sunglasses are just there for show or if something else is afloat.
A Revealing One Piece
Here’s one of the most unique cuts of a swimsuit we’ve ever seen. It’s a cool sort of purplish gray. Would you give this one a try?
This Kylie Jenner bikini was chosen to coincide with the launch of a Grinch-themed makeup from her cosmetic line. We all wear this for Christmas, right?
As you’ve likely noticed, Kylie Jenner bikinis tend to feature a single color and not very much pattern. That makes this super colorful swimsuit a real standout.
Leaving the Beach
Here’s Jenner underneath another shower. Who doesn’t love an outdoor shower? We love this pink bikini and imagine many others will as well!
YOU MIGHT ALSO LIKE: It’s the Modest, Affordable Bikini That Looks Good on Everyone
We must be finding Jenner at the end of a long day. Regardless, she picked an excellent bikini in this hot pink, strappy one.
There you go! What did you think of the Kylie Jenner bikinis? We hope we see some of them as part of the new Kylie Swim collection. Although the announcement of the brand came as a surprise to most, we really should have seen it coming as she has been telegraphing her love for them on social media for years now!
20 of the Absolute Craziest Kardashian-Jenner Parenting Controversies
The Kardashian-Jenner family never shies away from controversy. As we all know, Kim Kardashian made her name off of a publicity stunt involving an infamous tape. So, it’s not surprising that over the years, this reality TV family has found itself mixed up in messes of their own making. They love the spotlight and we love them for it. While it might sound critical, in fact, the Kardashians have broken a lot of ground when it comes to social taboos.
The Kardashians have made people talk about divorces, single-parent households, cheating, substance abuse, transitioning and trans politics, income inequality, race, celebrity, female sexuality, co-parenting, and so much more. In the year 2020, many of these topics do not seem that controversial. But the Kardashians rose to fame starting in 2007 and our society has changed so much since then. Like it or not, the Kardashian’s have had a huge impact.
Navigating motherhood is tough. Add to that, social media and that’s even more pressure for a mom to bear. Mom-shaming seems like a cultural phenomenon and each one of the Kardashian moms gets their fair share. Some of the “controversies” around the Kardashians are overblown, others are truly unbelievable. It’s important for us to remember that although the Kardashians have fortune, fame, and privilege, they’re still humans.
Which means they make mistakes. Unfortunately, the shady way they got into the spotlight colors some of these instances and makes us wonder, if they’re just doing controversial things for attention, for headlines, or for building their brands. It’s not always easy to tell, but one thing is certain. There have been many, many controversies over how the Kardashians and Jenners raise their kids. Every person’s parenting style is vastly different. If you’re famous, it gets scrutinized. Is it the price of fame? Let’s take a look at some of the craziest Kardashian parenting controversies from over the years. Buckle up!
Baby Psalm’s Crib Kontroversy
Psalm West pic.twitter.com/F0elQd1cJq— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) May 17, 2019
In May of 2019, Kim decided to share images of her newborn Psalm with the world. She posted a picture of her fourth child sleeping in a crib that was decked out in tons of padding and blankets. Kim immediately received backlash because having that much padding can be dangerous for infants. According to Women’s Health, too much padding puts babies at risk for Sudden Infant Death Syndrom or SIDS. The pressure was so great that Kim deleted the Instagram post, but the tweet still exists.
Khloé’s Calorie Counting Kontroversy
Khloé Kardashian took some heat for posting a photo of daughter True Thompson with cousin Chicago (Kim’s daughter) in August of 2019. She captioned the photo to make it look like a conversation between the two kids, “Chi: I heard my mama say ‘vacation calories don’t count’ True: Don’t tell me twice Chi.”
While most fawned over how adorable the cousin duo looked while digging into Cheeto Puffs and Veggie Straws, some followers were quick to slam Khloé for joking about calories when it comes to kids. “Teaching your children toxic diet culture,” another comment began. “That’s sick. You are role models for your children, and if you plant into their heads that early that calories matter and they need to look a certain way and can’t enjoy certain food unless they’re ‘on vacation’ or similar mentalities, it’s toxic. Teach your children moderation not restriction.”
Stormy’s Diamond Ring Kontroversy
Kylie Jenner very possibly purchased her 22-month-old daughter a diamond ring this past Christmas. Because no Kardashian Kristmas is complete without a publicity stunt, Kylie posted a video of her baby daughter wearing a diamond ring.
Kylie did not confirm if the diamond was indeed for her daughter, but in the video, the ring is fitted to a baby finger and you can hear Kylie say her daughter’s name, “Stormi!” There’s a baby cooing in the background, presumably pleased with her new rock. Naturally, this provoked some outrage from fans and detractors alike.
Kourtney’s Climate Crusade and Healthy Food Kontroversy
Mom-of-three Kourtney Kardashian is committed to living a healthy lifestyle, and she teaches her kids the importance of healthy choices as well. But, she bumped into some controversy after advocating for healthier food and banning single-use plastics at the school her children attend.
She wrote to the school with her concerns, “It’s common knowledge these days that food is fuel. When it comes to my kids’ schools, seeing what kind of meals and snacks are provided can be unsettling … processed foods, less than fresh, inorganic produce, etc. But as moms, it’s in our power to raise some awareness and rally for healthier options.”
Comments online flew in as people criticized her for her extravagant lifestyle and hypocrisy. “The irony of fighting against single-use plastic when using a stretch SUV to take children to a birthday party,” one person wrote.
“She can’t ask her nanny to pack a healthy lunch for the kids,” another angry commenter added.
Kim and Kanye’s Christmas Card Kontroversy
It was time for a little controversy for Kim and Kanye West this past Christmas. As an extremely wealthy and glamorous family, we expect nothing less than from the yearly Kardashian Christmas card. However, the world was stunned when Kim, Kanye, and their four children were pictured in grey sweats, sitting in a stark, white stairwell.
If the drab image wasn’t enough to stir up some controversy, the revelation that not all of the kids actually sat for the photo sure was. Kim’s oldest daughter, North, was apparently not having of it! She refused to sit for the Christmas photo, so Kim had her daughter photoshopped into it. Detractors claimed that it was further proof that the family is “fake.”
Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s Custody Kontroversy
Probably the most recent controversy on the list comes from none other than Rob Kardashian. Rob and Blac Chyna share a 3-year-old named Dream. However, much of Rob and Chyna’s co-parenting relationship has been embroiled in controversy. There have been multiple reports suggesting that Rob is attempting to get primary custody of his daughter. A source told People that Rob is concerned about Chyna’s parenting and her behavior around their daughter.
The source said, “Chyna has never been a model mom. Rob and the family always had issues with her and how she is parenting Dream. But as Dream is growing up, it’s becoming more clear that there needs to be huge changes in Chyna’s behavior and how she parents Dream.”
Many people in the family, and especially Khloé who signed on to the court filing, don’t believe Blac Chyna is a fit parent.
Kendall’s Mom-Ranking Kontroversy
Kendall Jenner stirred the pot and made things a bit tense between the moms in her family after appearing on The Late Late Show with James Corden and participating in a segment called “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts.” She was asked by the late-night host to rank the parents in her family from best to worst or drink some1,000-year-old egg nog. She should probably have drunk the egg nog, but instead, she waded into the warm waters of controversy.
Kendall said that Rob was the best parent, followed by Khloe, Kim, Kylie and then Kourtney. Naturally, Kourtney was offended by this and though she never said so on the record, Kim did talk about it to Ellen DeGeneres. In an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kim said, “I completely understood that Kourtney was sensitive about that because she’s an amazing parent, so Kendall just should’ve drank or eaten a tarantula. Whatever she had to do.”
Kendall is the only Kardashian-Jenner kid who isn’t herself a parent.
Kim’s Bloody JFK Shirt Kontroversy
This past Christmas the Kardashians went big! As we told you, a baby got a diamond ring, so it’s conceivable that Queen Kim got her children some extravagant gifts as well. She did! And according to reporting by People, Kim purchased North a jacket and hat worn by Michael Jackson. The jacket was reportedly worn by Jackson while he was attending the late Liz Taylor‘s 65th birthday party. The hat, Kim said, was the hat he wore during the Smooth Criminal music video. Nice haul, right?
The reporting about Kim’s gifts took a turn, however, when Refinery29 tweeted that Kim also purchased the shirt John F. Kennedy was wearing when he was assassinated. Yes, they tweeted a report that Kim bought her child a bloody shirt for Christmas. Kim wasn’t having it and tweeted back “WOW this is obviously fake! @Refinery29 I did not get JFK’s shirt. That is a sick joke that someone tweeted as a fake IG story that I never posted.”
Kim put an end to that controversy rather quickly.
Kim’s Morning Sickness Kontroversy
If you’ve watched one of the latest seasons of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, you know that Kim has had difficult pregnancies. In 2015, she decided to capitalize on the fact that she’d had severe morning sickness. She started a paid partnership with a morning sickness drug called, Diclegis. She posted to Instagram about the drug and how much it helped her during her pregnancies, but she left out some pretty important information, the side effects and that it was a paid ad.
The FDA got involved, issuing a letter that called out Kim’s post for failing to “communicate any risk information associated” with the use of Diclegis and suggesting the drug was safer than it is. Kim deleted the post. Then, reposted it with the side-effects copy/pasted into the caption and the #Ad. Fans were not having it, noting that in 2017 when Kim was not pregnant, she still posted about the drug. Doctors were alarmed also and questioned the drug’s effectiveness.
“I’ve been looking into [Diclegis] [for the] last five years and found no good reason to prescribe this medication over others,” family physician and researcher Nav Persaud told the Washington Post. “Astonishingly, I’ve found the study that is supposed to be the basis of the claim this medication is effective is problematic.”
Kourtney’s Sexy Photo Shoot with Her Son Kontroversy
Now, this isn’t too terribly controversial, but it made the list because this photo came on the heels of a pretty significant one, which we’ll discuss next. Kourtney shared a sexy photo of herself in a bikini at the beach. She captioned the photo, “photo by Mason.” Mason Disick is her son and was 8-years-old at the time he snapped the photo. People who found that fact Kourtney’s son took the photo “scandalous” kind of told on themselves because it’s rather harmless.
What gave this tiny controversy some legs was the fact that Kim shared a topless photo of herself taken by her then 4-year-old, North, just days before. Kardashian watchers thought that Kourtney might have been trying to take some of the heat for Kourtney or “normalize” children’s exposure to nudity. Again, we don’t see anything wrong here.
Kim’s Topless Photo Snapped by North Kontroversy
Soooo @KimKardashian got her daughter North to take a pic of her with her bra falling off, more or less half naked. ???? Erm, is that even appropriate? Not exactly teaching her kid good morals is she ???????? pic.twitter.com/HiRFEy5LNX— A (@Ay_xo) February 8, 2018
In February of 2018, Kim’s daughter, North was just 4-years-old. Kim shared a photo on Instagram of herself with her bra undone and her arms in front of her breasts. For some, it was a step too far. When the photo was first posted, people were confused because it wasn’t apparent that the child behind the flash in the photo was indeed Kim’s daughter. Rumors swirled until this controversy hit its peak and it was revealed that North was the child in the picture.
BET did a great job compiling people’s outrage-tweets. “Kim Kardashian got North taking her thirst traps I’m screaming,” one person tweeted. The faux outrage rolled in and Kim deleted the post from her Instagram.
Kourtney’s Daughter’s Eyes Kontroversy
Kourtney’s ex, Scott Disick with whom she co-parents her children, got embroiled in some controversy after sharing a photo with his daughter, Penelope. Penelope, 6-years-old, is pictured next to her father pulling at her eyelids. You might not see anything wrong with this, but many people noticed that Scott and Penelope were in a Japenese restaurant.
People hit the comment section and left their opinions saying that Penelope’s gesture was racist. Many couldn’t believe that Scott let his daughter behave in such an offensive way. “I’m Asian and that was racist,” wrote one fan. “She must have seen someone do it to think it’s okay,” another added. A third called Penelope’s behavior “inappropriate” and scolded the reality TV star for not correcting his child.
Scott captioned the photo, “Best first date of 2019.” We wonder if he read the comments.
Khloé Using Her Daughter as an Accessory Kontroversy
Shortly after the ‘calorie counting’ controversy and surrounding another photo from the same vacation, Khloé was piled on by fans for treating her daughter like an “accessory.” Khloé posted a photo to her Instagram of herself holding her daughter, True. They had been swimming with the pigs, which is a tourist attraction in the Bahamas. Khloé captioned the photo, “True is still processing how she feels about the pigs. I think the other pigs are still sleeping. It’s early.”
One person decided to pass judgment in the comments writing, “U do know that your baby isn’t an accessory, right?” The troll was referring to how Khloé dresses her daughter in matching outfits and posts numerous photos of her. In the photo, Khloé and True are wearing matching bathing suits.
Khloé didn’t let the comment slide. She responded, “Would you like a parent NOT to create memories and traditions with their child? Would you like someone else to watch my child and me do these things on my own? I am her mother and we will celebrate life together everyday. True and I are creating magical memories TOGETHER FOREVER.”
Kim’s Daughter’s Earrings Kontroversy
There’s probably no better example of the mom-shaming that the Kardashians face than this ‘controversy.’ Kim shared a sweet moment between herself and 6-year-old daughter, North locking their fingers together, adding the caption “Pinky swear we’re besties for life!!!”
You might see nothing wrong with this picture and you’d be right. But, some people took offense with the earrings North wears in the photo. “Kim ur letting ur daughter wear hoops that big what the helll . . . she has grown up to [sic] fast,” one commenter wrote on Instagram. “Wow!!! Sad!!! That little girl will never be a little girl,” another said.
It didn’t stop there. “So cute but my daughter WOULD NEVER be wearing those big hoop earring at such a young age come on mama keep your baby girl humble ! some beautiful diamond stubs fit so much better on a young girl,” another user commented on the photo.
Kim’s Bathtime Photo Kontroversy
In May of 2018, Kim got in some hot water when she shared a photo of North and Saint taking a bath together. The completely innocent photo of Kim’s young children enjoying bathtime made some people on Instagram very upset. In the now-deleted post, Kim captioned the photo of North hugging Saint, “My babies.”
The comment section got very heated. Someone wrote, “You’re a horrible mom. These are kids child molesters are touching themselves when they see this.”
Another wrote, “I think it’s a little inappropriate to post a picture of a little girl showing her chest??? Smh.”
Who knew such an innocent image could spark such outrage? But, after receiving tons of negative comments and some news coverage, Kim deleted the post.
Kim and Kanye’s Fight Over North’s Makeup Kontroversy
Kim not only has to take criticism from the internet, but she also has to contend with the whims of her eccentric husband. In September of 2019, it was revealed that Kim and daughter, North were experimenting with makeup until Kanye shut it down.
“I’d let her wear — you know, she has a little red for Christmas — I’d let her wear a red lip, or I’d her do one pop of something,” said Kim, who was being interviewed E! News during her KKW x WINNIE makeup collaboration dinner. “I’d let her, if she’s wearing a black dress, a black lip.”
“So, I kind of got in trouble for that,” she said of West’s reaction to seeing the makeup on his daughter. “So, it’s now no more makeup.”
As of November 2019, the battle was still raging on and fans had opinions about how young is too young for makeup. For many, it was more controversial that Kanye would be so opposed to his daughter playfully wearing makeup considering he married into a family of beauty moguls and hyper-image-conscious superstars.
Kourtney’s Son’s Long Hair Kontroversy
Another day, another controversy for the Kardashian mamas. Kourtney shared some pictures from a weekend away with her family, including a picture of her son Reign sporting long hair. In the Instagram post, Reign is pictured happily hanging out with a horse and having fun exploring nature. What’s so controversial? For some, the young boy’s long hair.
Kourtney gets mom-shamed for some really inconsequential things, this is probably the most ridiculous. Commenters decided they needed to tell Kourtney about their disapproval saying that she, “really needs to cut his hair.”
Luckily this time, Kourtney clapped back, replying to the comment, “She really needs to not worry about kids that aren’t her own. He is a happy boy.”
Kim’s Unhappy Pregnancy Kontroversy
In 2015, Kim was pregnant with her second child, Saint and she got raked over the coals for discussing how difficult the pregnancy was for her. Kim wrote at the time, “I’m gonna keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL. I don’t enjoy one moment of it and I don’t understand people who enjoy it. My mom and Kourtney clearly did! More power to them but I just don’t relate!”
This didn’t land well for many, and People did a great job of compiling some of the blowback. Folks were none too happy.
“Oh she is such a self centered twit. She complained about not being able to conceive now she is saying being pregnant is the worst experience of her life? Do us a favor and just shut up,” one person wrote.
“This loser troll had the nerve to say that ‘pregnancy is the worst experience in her life’….then went on tv telling everyone she had trouble conceiving. Kim does not care about anyone except herself, including North or the baby to come. How disgusting and trashy this family is,” another added.
Totally proportional and rational responses, right? Of course not, but when is the internet ever fair to moms? Joke’s on the haters, because Kim now has a beautiful child after all that.
Kylie’s Ear Piercing Kontroversy
Here’s another silly Kardashian-Jenner controversy about earrings. In 2018, Kylie posted a video of herself and 5-month-old daughter, Stormi to her Instagram. The sweet video caused a stir after people noticed that Stormi’s ears had been pierced. Many parents have many opinions about when it’s appropriate to pierce their children’s ears.
One person tweeted about the controversy, “Not to be fake deep this early but don’t you think it’s weird that we subject infants to the pain of a ear piercing purely for gender identification.”
Kylie did have one celebrity defender. Perez Hilton tweeted, “So many anglo-Americans freak out over babies getting their ears pierced. SO COMMON for Latinas!”
Whatever your opinion is about the subject, did this video of Kylie and her baby warrant this much debate?
Kim’s Placenta Kontroversy
For some mothers, eating the placenta after giving birth is a bit controversial. Not for Kim Kardashian! In 2015, Kim tweeted a photo of her placenta, in pill form, and people kind of freaked out over it. Most moms aren’t literally eating the placenta like they would a meal (no judgment if that’s your thing). Instead, many take the placenta in the form of a pill, which is what Kim did after the birth of Saint. It’s called placenta encapsulation.
Eating the placenta is controversial because eating something from your body is a bit scary to think about. But, many claim there are many health benefits, like curing postpartum depression and easier breastfeeding experience. Kim was in this camp writing at the time, “I really didn’t want the baby blues and thought I can’t go wrong with taking a pill made of my own hormones—made by me, for me. I started researching and read about so many moms who felt this same way and said the overall healing process was so much easier.”
That concludes the list of the 20 craziest Kardashian-Jenner parenting controversies. It’s easy to see that most of these “controversial” events were merely the result of mom-shaming. However, the Kardashians and Jenners constantly find themselves embroiled in controversy. It’s almost as if, it’s part of their brand.
