It’s been a wild year for the KarJenners, especially for Kim Kardashian. The mother of four has been dealing with the dramatic aftershock of her high-profile divorce from her ex-husband Kanye West. The stark difference between her latest divorce versus her past relationships is that now she’s going through the separation along with her four children North, Chicago, Saint and Psalm. Her legal fight to be declared legally single got complicated once Ye became enraged by her new flame Pete Davidson.
Kim wasn’t the only one to suffer from heartbreak. Khloe Kardashian has also been trying to move on from her own dramatic relationship with basketball player Tristian Thompson. The couple officially broke up again last year after numerous reports documented at least one confirmed instance where Thompson cheated on Khloe. The woman he stepped out with, Marlalee Nichols, gave birth to a baby boy. Even after he denied the child was his, Thompson ended up admitting he was the father once he received the results of a paternity test.
The KarJenners aren’t always producers of ostentatious moments. The youngest sister, Kylie Jenner, spent the majority of the past year pregnant with her and rapper Travis Scott’s first son. Their second child was born earlier this year. Although they had previously announced their son’s name would be ‘Wolf,’ Kylie and Travis revealed that they were rethinking the child’s name and would update their fans when they were ready.
In addition to Kylie and Travis’ newborn child, the Kardashian clan got even bigger after Kourtney Kardashian got hitched to drummer Travis Barker after the 64th Grammy awards. Check out more shocking moments from the Kardashian family below.

Kim's response was "My statement was never intended to be a general blanket statement or to even allude to the idea that women don’t already work hard — and I’m sorry that it was received in that way."
