In the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (KUWTK), Kris Jenner‘s relationship with her boyfriend Corey Gamble landed in the spotlight after being stirred by Kanye West who is known for making blunt statements.
The drama started brewing after Kim Kardashian‘s husband Kanye West impulsively threw shade at Gamble over text, questioning why they had never met his family.
Kris Jenner, 63, and Corey Gamble, 38, have been dating since the fall of 2014, following her divorce from Caitlyn Jenner, but they’ve kept their relationship relatively private.
According to his wife Kim Kardashian, Kanye West’s texts Corey Gamble something that Kris Jenner felt was inappropriate.
“Kanye texts Corey something along the lines of, ‘Look, we don’t know you, we’ve never met any of your family members….Of course we’ve all felt that way and thought that, but for Kanye to just so bluntly say that to him — I feel like that was the wrong choice to make at that time,” said Kim Kardashian.
Khloe Kardashian disagreed with West’s approach but ultimately agreed with him. She said:
“Kanye’s delivery wasn’t great, but the essence of what he said is true… Corey does tend to be pretty secretive and that does have me pretty guarded. … We don’t know Corey like that.
Khloe even admitted that she never thought the relationship would last as long as it has.
“After my mom got her divorce, I was like, ‘Okay, this probably isn’t going to last,’ ” Khloé said. “I just didn’t feel the need to get that connected or attached. Then when I saw time progressing and the relationship was still there, we tried to get to know him, but he has not been receptive in this whole thing.”
Naturally, Kris was offended to hear this from her son-in-law as well as her daughters.
“I just wish I knew why [Kanye] has to bring bad energy into the field at 6 o’clock in the morning,” she said. “I would never disrespect somebody and say that.”
It is completely normal for children to feel protective of their parents. Kim and Khloe came to Kanye’s defense in the same manner as well. Kris felt they should accept and not question her relationship.
At the end of the episode, both Kim and Khloe sat down to have an honest conversation with Corey Gamble. According to Gamble, he did not take any offense to Kanye’s text. In addition, he even pointed out that he was wearing Yeezy 700s. After the convo, the Kardashian daughters and Gamble have come to common ground.
