Rob Kardashian has been an elusive member of the Kardashian family for many years now. His unwillingness to participate in certain Kardashian events has been at the center of a Kardashian feud that’s been brewing between the siblings for some time.
According to Radar Online, something else came to a head when Rob exploded after being confronted by a certain family member.
Rob slammed his family for being “disgusting” and “unsupportive,” and his main target was Kourtney Kardashian. It’s a surprise that Rob managed to anger Kourtney because out of the clan, she’s his biggest supporter and advocate when other members have turned their backs.

It all went down on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and it had to do with Rob’s fiancee, Blac Chyna. It happened after Kourtney Kardashian got wind of Blac Chyna’s new emoji set. Now, what’s the big deal about an emoji set? Well, one of the emoji’s released looks like Rob’s fiancee is slapping Kylie Jenner. Kylie, of course, is on-again-off-again with Chyna’s baby daddy Tyga, so in Chyna’s eyes, Kylie is a rival. That said, Rob hooked up with Chyna after Kylie was in a relationship with Tyga, so there’s a lot of drama to go around.
Kourtney, who’s usually always on Rob’s side, confronted the situation head-on and was shown conversing with makeup artist Mario about the situation.
At the time she said, “Everything with Rob, I try to be super calm. I was going to call Chyna..but I don’t want to yell at a pregnant person.”
As we know, Blac Chyna is currently expecting her second child and her first with Rob Kardashian. The two were on and off but are now officially on since announcing the pregnancy.

During the green room interview, Kourtney was heard saying, “This is the first time I’ve questioned Chyna’s intentions. Just when everyone was trying to be really accepting and welcoming Chyna into the family, this comes out. It sent me over the edge!”
Rob, of course, doesn’t like to be filmed for Keeping Up with the Kardashians. According to Kourtney, during the fight, Rob said that the emoji wasn’t of Kylie by saying, “When has Chyna ever slapped Kylie?” That said, it could be argued that Blac Chyna was trying to insinuate that it was her given the gossip that’s going around, even though it wasn’t advertised as Kylie.
Aggravated by the situation, Kourtney said of the argument, “He’s like, ‘I’m going to go on the red carpet tonight and tell everyone that I have the worst, most unsupportive, disgusting family.’ I think it’s stupid to take it there.”
That said, Kylie, the person who’s supposed to be at the center of this rift between Kourtney and Rob, doesn’t even think the emoji looks like her. In fact, she seemed pretty calm about the whole matter when she addressed the cameras.
“I’ve talked to Chyna, and I really don’t think the emojis are of me. It’s time for everyone to just be happy for him.”
Kim, who was trying to act as the diplomatic one out of the bunch, had orchestrated another phone conversation in hopes to settle things. Eventually, Kourtney apologized to Rob for getting angry first instead of rationalizing.
“I should have asked Rob what was going on instead of getting so angry. I’m hoping he wants to make it a peaceful situation as well,” said Kourtney.
Do you think Kourtney was right to confront Rob?
