Kendall and Kylie Jenner are allegedly “furious” with mom Kris Jenner after the Kardashian matriarch revealed in a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians that she’s planning to change her name back to Kris Kardashian.
Following Kris’s bombshell name change confession, Hollywood Life is alleging that both Kendall and Kylie think Kris contemplating a name change is a “selfish” decision and will take the move as a personal “diss” if Kris decides to go ahead.
“Both Kylie and Kendall feel slightly dissed by momma Kris suggesting that she may change her name,” a source told the site of how Kendall and Kylie really feel about Jenner’s name change confession in a deleted scene taken from the family reality show.
“The girls feel like it would affect them and make them feel like they are on their own in a weird way,” the insider close to the Kardashian and Jenner family added, admitting that “Kendall and Kylie feel like to argue with their mom about it puts them in an uncomfortable place.”
The Jenner insider then confessed that Kris and Kendall Jenner find their mom’s seemingly sudden desire to become an official Kardashian again pretty “bizarre,” particularly seeing as she only divorced Caitlyn Jenner, then Bruce, last year.
“It’s bizarre. Kylie and Kendall have talked about it and can’t understand, ‘Why does mom have to do that now? It’s only been a year since the divorce. Why give us more to deal with?'” the source told Hollywood Life this week.
The Kardashian source also admitted that Kylie and Kendall have been pretty vocal about their reluctance for their mom to revert back to the Kardashian name, which would ensure Kris shares the famous surname with her four children with the late Robert Kardashian, Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, and Rob.
“Kendall and Kylie have told friends that the thought that mom would change her name back to Kardashian is selfish,” Hollywood Life’s insider said.
According to E! News, Kris Jenner made the surprising confession that she was planning to reclaim the Kardashian name in a deleted scene taken from an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, in which she admitted to daughter Khloe that she was contemplating filing papers to change her name back to her first married moniker.
Kris Jenner then admitted that she often refers to herself as “Kris Kardashian,” to which Khloe candidly told her mom in the deleted scene revealed by E! News, “Your name isn’t Kris Kardashian.”
That’s when Jenner told Khloe of her big plans to change her last name back to Kardashian, to which Khloe told Kris, “Why? You haven’t been that in over 24 years!” referring to her 1992 divorce from her first husband, Robert Kardashian.
However, despite Khloe’s confusion in the clip, Kris then bluntly told her daughter that she, in fact, was “the original Kardashian” long before Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney made the surname one of the most famous in the world.
“I don’t care if you were that, that’s bizarre,” Khloe then told Kris, asking her mom, “Why don’t you go back to your maiden name?” and confessing that she believes if Kris does change her name back to Kris Kardashian that she would be “insulting” both Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
But it sounds like Khloe’s reluctance didn’t exactly faze the Kardashian matriarch, as Kris then admitted, “If Bruce can change his name to Caitlyn, I think I’m good.”
