Kris Jenner is used to getting her way and doing as she pleases, an attitude that often causes her kids a hard time. Though the love stays strong in the Kardashian clan, it’s sometimes tough to put up with the Momager’s controlling ways. Kris has clashed with each of her kids, or their partners, many times over the years

The oldest of Kris’ six children, Kourtney Kardashian, recently took to her lifestyle blog, Poosh, to chat with her former partner Scott Disick about their co-parenting style. During their discussion, Kourtney admitted she’s always tried to avoid comparing her children to one another. “…They’re completely different,” she said. “But I think, you know, growing up with 5 siblings is, my mom did compare us…”

Kourtney went on to explain a recent situation where Kris compared her to younger sister Kendall. Kourtney recalled that she told her mom that she was her own person and she was happy with who she was. “I said the world compares us enough, like we don’t need to be compared by our own mother. And I … and I was thinking about it today that we never do that.”

Kylie, the youngest, has also had her share of run ins with Kris. The two clashed over office space this past season on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Kylie didn’t appreciate her mom talking about the office as if it were her’s alone, while Kris thought Kylie was overreacting. Kylie only became angrier after she learned from sister Khloe that Kris had already given the family a grand tour, an honor which Kylie wanted to do herself.

Though the blowup briefly pitted the family against one another, the two finally made up over donuts and put the bad blood behind them. Earlier this year, Gossip Cop covered a story from the National Enquirer which falsely claimed that Kylie kicked Kris from their shared office space. While it was true the two fought over the space, including a prime parking spot, no one was kicked out.

Khloe’s also been known to go toe-to-toe with her mother. After her ex husband Lamar Odom published his memoirs, she learned that Kris had a hand in organizing the former couple’s 2015 Soul Cycle confrontation. Though Khloe held no ill-will about the incident, where she was ambushed while on her way to Soul Cycle by her soon-to-be ex husband and a horde of paparazzi, she was upset that Kris lied about her involvement in the incident. Kris continually denied having anything to do with it, though Odom claims it was she that told him to meet Khloe there and that it was Kris who tipped off the paparazzi. During that episode of KUWTK, Kris went out of her way to avoid Khloe, saying she feared the confrontation. By the end of the episode, however, the two worked things out.

The Kardashians may fight, and sometimes fight quite nastily, but they can never stay mad at their mother for too long. After all, it’s thanks to Kris’ managerial skills that the family is where they are today. It’s never wise to look a gift Kris in the mouth.
