The middle Kardashian-Jenner sister is proud to say she is the most outspoken member of her family but confesses she sometimes lets rumours get the better of her
Khloe Kardashian has confessed she sometimes lets anger take over when rumours about her personal life spread among her fanbase – with the result being she lashes out on social media.
The 37-year-old reality star is the middle sister of the Kardashian-Jenner clan with big sisters Kourtney, 42, and Kim, 41, a couple of years older than her and younger sisters Kendall Jenner, 26, and Kylie Jenner, 24 a decade younger than her – while reclusive brother Rob Kardashian being aged 34.
While middle children offer suffer from a stereotype of being competitive attention seekers, Khloe argues she is outspoken and protective about herself and her family.
While all the Kardashian-Jenners have been under the spotlight over the past 15 years after winning global attention thanks to their reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe arguably attracts more abuse online than her other siblings do.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Khloe says that speculation about her life can get under her skin – leading to outbursts online.
She told the publication: “It depends what mood I’m in – if I’m having a hard week, I snap and that’s when I go on Twitter and start commenting. Sometimes, I spiral.
“We’re all used to there being so much crap out there, but sometimes it can be the smallest thing and I just want to set the record straight – especially when it’s about my family. I get more protective.”
The mum-of-one – who shares three-year-old daughter True Thompson with 30-year-old Canadian love rate Tristan Thompson – agrees she is the most outspoken of her siblings, but goes on to say she is trying to find a new balance between her personal life and how she interacts with others online.
She said: I am [the most outspoken one], but we’re all outspoken in different ways. I’m the one who’s outspoken publicly, whereas the others might have their opinions within their circle.
“I’m probably just the loudest! I used to comment a lot more, but the last couple of months, I’ve been posting and walking away. It’s so dark and consuming sometimes.”
She added: “When I don’t feel strong enough emotionally, I have to know that and put myself first. I don’t even spend an hour a day on social media. I used to spend more for sure, but I’m really good at not being on social media. It scares me.”
Khloe has been dragged back under the microscope in recent weeks amid speculation that Tristan had cheated on her once again – only for the speculation to be confirmed by the basketball player himself as he finally admitted fathering a child with another woman.
Tristan – who already has a five-year-old son with ex-girlfriend Jordan Craig – revealed on Monday that a paternity test had confirmed he is the father of a boy born of Maralee Nichols, who arrived last month.
In a grovelling Instagram post shared at the start of the week, Tristan apologised to Khloe for his indiscretion while also acknowledging the child he shares with Maralee.
The sportsman – who was dating Khloe until June 2021, but indulged in his affair with Maralee in March last year – wrote online: “Today paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.
“I take full responsibility for my actions. Now that paternity has been established I look forward to amicably raising our son.
“I sincerely apologize to everyone I’ve hurt or disappointed throughout this ordeal both publicly and privately.
“Khloe, you don’t deserve this. You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you.
“You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years. My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you.
“I have the upmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
