Kourtney accuses sister Kim of using her wedding as a ‘business opportunity’ to score D&G deal

Must Read

Kourtney Kardashian‘s nasty feud with her younger sister Kim Kardashian was touched on in the new teaser trailer for season three of their family’s Hulu show.

Kourtney, 44, accused Kim, 42, of using her May 2022 wedding to Travis Barker as a ‘business opportunity’ and feels as though her special day was ‘stripped’ from her.

Kourtney and Travis’ lavish nuptials were held at the Italian estate owned by Dolce & Gabbana designers, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana, and the luxury fashion created her gown.

Shortly after the wedding, Kourtney learned that Kim was co-designing a collection with Dolce & Gabbana called ‘Ciao, Kim.’

The collaboration – meant for Spring/Summer 2023 and described as a ‘reinterpretation’ of the brand’s iconic ’90s and 00’s archives’ – debuted during Paris Fashion Week in September.

Kim attended the show and walked the runway with Domenico and Stefano after the models finished their strut.

In conjunction with the couture collection, Kim and D&G released a limited collection that included a T-shirt with a print of Kim eating pasta on it that retails for $195. 

The mother-of-four was named the face of Dolce & Gabbana and her little sister Kylie Jenner recently followed in her footsteps by also appearing in a campaign for the brand.

Though Kim’s impact is unknown, Launchmetrics reported that D&G’s involvement in Kourtney’s wedding positively impacted their media impact value.

Kourtney, Travis and their entire wedding party were clad in custom Dolce & Gabbana looks and the ceremony’s location was also directly connected to the brand.

Kourtney’s wedding gown included a veil with ‘a depiction of the Virgin Mary’ and the designer label told Vogue that the dress ‘was inspired by archival Italian lingerie.’

The couple also heavily posted the wedding on their social media platforms, along with those used by their family members, tagging D&G.

Just days after the wedding, it was determined that over $47 million in media impact value was earned by the Italian fashion house.

And now, nearly a year after the wedding and seven months after Kim’s collection debuted, the sisters’ D&G drama is being fully explored on Hulu’s The Kardashians.

‘My sister used my wedding as a business opportunity,’ Kourtney states in a confessional, suggesting Kim saw the wedding as a way to get in with D&G.

Kourtney and Kim’s other sisters gossip about the tensions brewing between the pair and admit they are unsure if their relationship can be mended. 

‘[Kourtney] felt like her wedding vibes were like stripped from her,’ Kendall Jenner tells little sister Kylie.

Kim first learns from Khloe that Kourtney is ‘livid’ about the situation but Kim believes that Kourtney has it all wrong.

The SKIMS founder tells the cameras: ‘I’m really confused at how this narrative came into her head.’

Kim also claimed that, when creating her D&G collection, she made sure that no inspiration was taken from Kourtney’s wedding. 

‘Like, I couldn’t have been more mindful. I said, “Don’t do anything that Kourtney wore to her wedding.”‘

But Kourtney wasn’t convinced.

‘People think it’s a misunderstanding. It’s not. It’s who she is to her core,’ Kourtney says to Khloe, who she’s also grown apart from in recent years.

‘We know how to be there for each other, but only on a superficial level,’ she tells a shocked Khloe, who answers simply with ‘What?’

‘This tension goes way back,’ Khloe says as a stern looking Kourtney glances icily at Kim during one of her wedding get togethers.

Their mother Kris, 67, appeared to be the voice of reason in the situation, telling the cameras: ‘I’m really good at being calm when there’s turbulence but this has been a whirlwind of a year.’

‘Family is what I value the most so I just feel very anxious,’ Kris says with Kylie noting that she ‘doesn’t think everything’s going to be ok.’

Kourtney and Kim have had cracks in their sisterhood over the years.

In Season 15, Kim meanly called Kourtney ‘the least exciting to look at’ out of all the sisters as they argued about scheduling for a family photoshoot.

As the back-and-forth heated up, Kim went on to insult Kourtney’s work ethic and told her that ‘nobody wanted her there’ at the shoot anyways.

This led to Kourtney branding the SKKN by Kim founder as an ‘evil human being’ and said that she was ‘ashamed’ to be related to her.

In 2021, Kim admitted that the remarks were ‘such a low blow’ and Kourtney said that it’s now a ‘funny thing’ that they joke about.

They also famously got into a physical altercation in 2020, which was caught on camera and aired during season 18 of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The blowout resulted in Kourtney abruptly leaving the reality TV series, which would air for two more seasons before ending in 2021.

During a 2022 appearance on the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, Kourtney opened up about the fight and the rage that had been building up inside her towards Kim.

‘The daily stuff to where I had the rage inside to scratch my sister or whatever, in the fight. I probably blacked out,’ the mother-of-three told the host. ‘It was a lot. I felt like it was an intense time.’

She also revealed that she’s also not as close to Khloe as she once was because she felt like her and Kim were ‘ganging up’ on her at the end of KUWTK.

‘It was almost everything that Khloe and I had kind of done to Kim, and then they were flipping it on me,’ Kourtney explained.

She added: ‘[Khloe and I] are good. I think just life isn’t the same. I think I’m in a different place.” 

But Kourtney isn’t bothered by the ‘distance’ between herself and her sisters, telling the podcast: ‘I love to keep my little bubble and as they say, “Protect your energy.”‘

After KUWTK ended in June 2021, it was revealed that the family would be back on TV screens with a new show on Hulu.
