From Amber To Adrienne: 11 People The Kardashian Clan And Co. Teamed Up To Beef With Over The Years

After watching Amber Rose put Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and the whole Kardashian clan in their place earlier this week, it made me think of the many other times that the family (and their friends/flunkies) have gone up against their detractors over things they’ve found disrespectful. Considering how much people have to say about this family, you think they would be involved in Twitter beefs every week. But after doing some thinking, and digging, there haven’t been that many public squabbles–but I would say at least 11. Here are people who’ve had beef with the Kardashians over the years, and some of the names might surprise you.

Naya Rivera

Big Sean’s ex was given a hefty side-eye by the Kardashians when she openly criticized Kim for showing off her backside (and front side) for Paper magazine. Remember that time she allegedly broke the Internet? Well, when Rivera said “But…you’re someone’s mother…” after Kardashian unveiled the cover, Kardashian’s BFF, Jonathan Cheban, came for the “Glee” star:

“After a year-long tour of impersonating Kim, she’s decided to come out of her shell and make a real statement about Kim’s Paper cover…I’m personally disgusted that after badgering Kim all year and trying to hang out and do business together, she goes and tries to make a statement like this…Who the f**k is Naya to throw in her meaningless comments??”

Kardashian’s other good friend, publicist Simon Huck, threw his own dose of shade: “How sad! I met you two years ago at Kim’s birthday party in Vegas (we had all flown in for it, you included). Stop the hate.”

Adrienne Bailon

After Bailon spoke about the cheating ways of her ex-boyfriend, Rob Kardashian, for the umpteenth time (but this time in Latina), Kim and Khloe tried to come for “The Real” co-host’s throat. Their specific issue was with Bailon saying the “Kardashian label” was hurtful to her and her career. Plus, they didn’t like her talking about Rob since he’s been dealing with a lack of confidence due to his drastic weight gain. As Kim put it: “Funny how she says being with a Kardashian hurt her career yet the only reason she has this article is bc she is talking about a Kardashian…LetItGoooooLetItGoooooo (FROZEN VOICE)”

And Khloe was especially miffed, saying, “Don’t kick my brother while he’s down.” She also told a follower, “thought her and I were cool SMH”

Even Kourtney jumped in: “STILL talking about us?!”

Paris Hilton

Remember when Kim Kardashian was pretty much treated like the assistant of former “It girl” Paris Hilton? You know, back when Juicy Couture sweatsuits and Von Dutch was hot? Well, after Kim’s sex tape leaked, Kardashian’s career flourished and Hilton’s stalled. Feeling some type of way, Hilton shaded Kardashian’s world-famous behind, saying in 2008 on the radio that it “looks like cottage cheese stuffed in a trash bag.” From there, the icy shoulder was given to Hilton, who had to watch as the friend she once treated like property overtook her in popularity. It would take years for Kardashian to actually acknowledge a now struggle-ridden (but still rich) Hilton in public again. And once she did, Khloe threw her a bone and hung out with Hilton and her sister Nicky in Dubai too.

Joan Rivers

Considering that Rivers used to crack jokes about North West (including calling the tot “ugly”), I could see why the Kardashians wouldn’t be so crazy about the late comedienne. But according to Us Weekly, at an NBC Upfronts event last May, Kardashian had the legendary funny lady removed from the seat next to her and sister Khloe due to the constant jokes about the family. She reportedly had seen Rivers before then and never confronted her about her comments, but she was not about to sit next to Rivers if she didn’t have to…

Rita Ora

In another chapter of musical chairs, Kardashian wasn’t trying to be near Rita Ora, Rob’s ex, at last year’s VMA Awards. According to TMZ, when Kim arrived at the show, she realized that Ora’s seat was in the same row as her own and asked producers to find her a different place to sit, putting her next to younger sisters Kendall and Kylie. According to reports, the Kardashians, specifically Kim and Kourtney, blamed Ora for the emotional meltdown Rob has been going through for a while (which includes his major weight gain). And we know Rob bashed Rita as much as he could on Twitter in 2012, claiming Ora “cheated on me with nearly 20 dudes.”

Jon Hamm

The “Mad Men” went head-to-head with Kim after he called her a “f**king idiot” back in 2012. At the time, he was trying to explain his issue with reality stars: “Whether it’s Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian or whoever, stupidity is certainly celebrated.”

Kardashian hit back, calling Hamm’s comments “careless.”

“Calling someone who runs their own businesses, is part of a successful TV show, produces writes, designs, and creates, ‘stupid,’ is in my opinion careless. I respect Jon and I am a firm believer that everyone is entitled to their own opinion and that not everyone takes the same path in life. We’re all working hard and we all have to respect one another.”

I think it’s safe to say that the Kardashian’s went ahead and burned season one and two of Mad Men after all this.


PETA tries it with celebrities every other day, and they’ve had it out for Kim Kardashian (and Kanye) for years. The reality star’s love of fur has caused PETA to put out ads dissing her, and yet and still, she stays with some sable, chinchilla and mink on her body (and now, on North too). Interesting enough, Khloe Kardashian actually posed nude for PETA and was down for what the organization stood for, until she found out that they had ties to Christina Cho, an activist for animal rights who threw flour on Kim at an event. Khloe would go on to put out a statement saying that she wanted no parts of the organization:

“As you all know, I don’t condone violence and bullying and what happened last Thursday was just that. I am absolutely disgusted by their behavior. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions — I personally don’t wear fur but that doesn’t mean I am going to force my views on anyone else, ESPECIALLY by violating them.

I am a very proud sister right now, because Kim handled last week’s incident like a champ. She got cleaned up and was back out there in a matter of minutes. Go Kimmie!

We all need to practice what we preach. I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise.”

Kris Humphries

After 72 days of marriage, Kris Humphries was dumped by Kim K like a pair of hole-ridden socks. But when he stalled on going through with the divorce, the family considered him a leech, and treated him like such in the press. Khloe even got on TV and called him “delusional.”

“I don’t know why he’s asking for anything. He’s fame-hungry, in my opinion. He wants money…I just think everything he’s doing is so — it’s just gross to me.”

Kourtney even said about the quicky marriage, “if she was going to do it for publicity, she’d pick someone that people knew.”

And let’s not forget that the second Kanye West started dating Kim after she gave up on her marriage, he trashed Humphries too, but through song: “And I’ll admit, I had fell in love with Kim, around the same time she had fell in love with him/Well that’s cool, baby girl, do ya thang, lucky I ain’t had Jay drop him from the team.”

Farrah Abraham

The former “Teen Mom” star tried it when she criticized Kourtney Kardashian for getting pregnant with her second child since she and Scott Disick aren’t married. Taking to Twitter, Abraham said, “Im Shocked Kourtney Kardashian is pregnant again, Did she not learn anything from TEEN MOM? Maybe its a fake pregnancy like kims wedding. SAD”

Well, both Kourtney and Scott read her for filth online. Kourtney said, “Why would I have anything to do with Teen Mom? I’m 32 years old! I may look young, honey, but don’t get it twisted.”

And as for Scott, he threw an expletive out there for Abraham to catch: “We’re not teenagers, ya f**king moron.” When Khloe jumped in to ask Disick how he even knew who Abraham was, he replied, “I just thought she was some sh*t stain on Twitter, no?”

Sarah Michelle Gellar

Remember that unanimously loathed Vogue cover the couple did last year? Even the stars were talking sh*t about it, including former “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” star, Sarah Michelle Gellar. When the cover came out, Gellar made it clear that she was disappointed in the magazine.

“Well…….I guess I’m canceling my Vogue subscription. Who is with me???”

Not Jonathan Cheban. He jumped in to come to Kardashian’s rescue, once again, by asking the star, “Do u matter?”

The other Kardashians, and the Jenners, tried to drown out the discontent over the cover by praising Kimye.

Bey & Jay

Kris Jenner tried it, but her shots didn’t land. When Kim and Kanye got married last summer, one couple noticeably absent to celebrate was Beyoncé and Jay Z. When asked while on KIIS 106.5 FM what she thought of the power couple being a no-show for the big wedding, Jenner said they were the “last thing on anyone’s mind.”

“There was so much commotion and excitement, I never really gave that a second thought. If you had been there you would have thought that was the last thing on anyone’s mind. I just assumed they were working.”

Whatever the reason they didn’t show up, Kim and Kanye obviously didn’t let the absence hurt their feelings for too long, because Kardashian stays trying to be buddy-buddy with Bey, and Kanye just interrupted another musician’s acceptance speech AGAIN to prove he’s a card-carrying member of the BeyHive.
