A Complete Breakdown of Kim and Kourtney's Feud in "The Kardashians"

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian are still going at it in "The Kardashians" season four. In the show's previous installment, which aired beginning in May, fans witnessed the slow-burn feud between the two sisters after speculation that the sibling duo had tension brewing. Season three dove deep into the source of their clash — which has everything to do with Dolce & Gabbana and Kourtney's 2022 wedding — but even after seemingly reconciling, their feud ignited once again in the new season's Sept. 28 premiere.

For context, Kourtney partnered with the fashion brand for her lavish Italian wedding to now-husband Travis Barker in May 2022. Soon after, Kim began a partnership of her own with the brand and, apparently, Kourtney wasn't too happy about it. She expresses as much at the start of season four during a heated argument with Kim (more on that ahead).

Previously, toward the end of "The Kardashians" season three, viewers saw Kourtney distancing herself from her family, as she shared that she planned on spending more time with her husband to get away from issues with her siblings. "With my family, I'm like, 'Protect my energy,'" she said. "And like, 'I'm married! Bye everyone!'"

It's hard to say if Kim and Kourtney have completely solved their feud, but here's everything we know about it so far.

How Did Kim and Kourtney Kardashian's Feud Begin?

In the June 15 episode of "The Kardashians," Kourtney had an emotional conversation with sister Kendall Jenner where she explained the tense situation between herself and Kim. "I feel like there's an abundance of opportunities," she said. "It's not about business, it's just there's so much and it takes precedence over hurting your sister. It's legit copying my wedding."

Kourtney also claimed that Kim wasn't happy at her Italian wedding, adding that made it even more painful that her sister copied it. "She wasn't happy at my wedding. Everyone else was like, 'Whoa, this is amazing. We're having the best time.' She can never give acknowledgment of like, 'Whoa, this is so amazing,'" Kourtney explained. "She sees everything that I had there and takes it for her own, and she doesn't even see it. She sees it for the dollar signs, but to me, I see it. And I see it like, 'Oh, you were there, you weren't happy.' Everyone said something to me, all my friends, she's like spiraling."

"I do think that like as sisters we also have to understand when someone has a job . . . we have to try and see where this could work for both of us, I guess," Kendall added. Kourtney said, though, that it's not that her sister needs to get her permission, but, "If I did it to Kim, she would freak out."

"To me, it was more personal. I think that's why it hurts my feelings because it was my actual wedding," Kourtney continued. Kendall said she understood "both sides" but was sorry that the situation had ruined Kourtney's happiness after the wedding.

Later in the same episode, Khloé told Kim that Kourtney was upset. "It's not rational. . . . It's not nice, on her end," Kim said. She continued, "This is the first time I've heard that Kourtney is upset about us doing the Dolce show. Like I couldn't have been more mindful." Kim also said that she didn't do any styles from the wedding "out of respect" for Kourtney.

In the June 22 episode of "The Kardashians," Kourtney and Kim's beef is addressed again. During a conversation with her stylist Dani Michelle, Kourtney asks Michelle if she watched Kim's show with Dolce, saying, "I saw that it was the '90s as their theme, and I thought it was just so crazy how Dolce presented us for the wedding, for all my sisters to wear and all my other looks, were all current lemon prints and things, and then we insisted that it had to be '90s Dolce."

"It just feels like [Kim] took the mood board we sent my family and made it, even though it's obviously all Dolce & Gabbana clothes," Kourtney added. "She's putting out all these vibes from my wedding with looks that we so carefully curated, and then putting it into the fashion show."

She continued: "The timing, cause it's four months after my wedding, this had to be being planned and worked on for months to get such a big production done."

Following the Dolce show, Kim talked to her family and friends about Kourtney's reaction during dinner. "She got so mad," Kim recalled. "She said, 'You're trying to copy me,' but she always tries to hate on the side. She's such a hater."

Later in the episode, Kim said she just wants to make things right with Kourtney. "We need to figure out how we're going to talk about Dolce because she doesn't really want to talk about it," Kim said during a phone conversation with pal Simon Huck. "I thought I was being actually really mindful. There were so many collections that I wanted to do."

Did Kim and Kourtney Kardashian Reconcile?

In the July 6 episode of "The Kardashians," Kim and Kourtney finally hashed out their issues face-to-face. During their chat, Kim clarified to her sister that her partnership with Dolce was originally supposed to involve her SKIMS brand. "Then I called you," she told Kourtney. "I said, 'SKIMS is not doing it,' because we couldn't get it together that quickly. I kept saying, 'I don't want to do this because it's so close to Kourtney's wedding — I want it to be completely different.'" Kim eventually agreed, though, as the fashion brand told her they'd move forward with a show of their archived looks without or without SKIMS.

But from Kourtney's perspective, she said to Kim, "You weren't like, 'Hey, I'd love to know how you feel about this.' You called me after the deal was done."

Later on to the cameras, Kim said that the argument of copying Kourtney's wedding could be said about her sister, too. "I got married in Italy. Am I saying you copied me by getting married in Italy?" she said in a confessional. "Who performed at my wedding? Andrea Bocelli. Who performed at Kourtney's wedding? Andrea Bocelli. You stole my f*cking wedding country and my wedding performer. Andrea Bocelli is my favorite male singer of all time, but I'm copying her dolce vita lifestyle? OK."

After exchanging more thoughts about the feud, Kourtney said to Kim that "none of these details matter," but she wished someone would've called to ask how she felt about Kim and Dolce working together. "I would be upset, I get it," Kim said understanding her sister's point of view.

Though the two sisters seemed to settle their differences in person, they still shared their frustrations in confessionals. In one, Kourtney claimed that Kim values money over family, noting that "whatever is in the moment" drives her sister to be greedy and she doesn't consider things "on a deeper level." Still, Kim apologized to Kourtney at the end of their talk and said, "I'm happy for the experience," referring to her creative director gig with Dolce, and added, "I'm sad and sorry that the experience ever hurt you."

Why Are Kim and Kourtney Kardashian Feuding Again?

The dust between the two sisters seemed to settle at the end of last season. During the season four premiere, Kim even confirmed they were "over it," as they recorded their family Christmas album together and talked things out. However, she then revealed that watching the season three edits angered them all over again. Kourtney also shared that a heated phone call with Kim — which happened three days before their family's trip to Cabo San Lucas — reignited their beef.

The call started calm until Kourtney, again, expressed her desire to not be around her family. Kim then suggested that the two talk about what they said in show edits, which prompted them to revisit their feud and, of course, things went left. At one point, Kourtney said to Kim: "You cannot stand someone else being the center of attention. You came to my wedding, you couldn't be happy. You complained from the second you got there till the second you left. That's what it's about." She rounded out her point by saying, "You couldn't be happy for me."

Kim then asked her sister to "dig deep" and "figure out why you hate me so much and why you're so angry with me," adding that none of what Kourtney said ever happened. She also accused Kourtney of having a "serious vendetta" against her. Kim then said Kourtney is a "different person" and her whole family, plus some of her sister's friends, "all talk about it." "All of your friends call us complaining . . . We're all on a group chat labeled 'Not Kourtney,' so we know and have to funnel what your friends are saying to us, and have to figure out why you're such a different person," Kim said.

Kim also added, "You take it all out on me and I'm trying the best that I can to reconcile and figure it out." Kourtney then said, "It's about you. You are a narcissist. It is all about you." On behalf of their family, Kim said, "We all are concerned. We all think that you're not happy."

Kourtney replied, "I have a happy life. The happiness comes when I get the f*ck away from you guys, specifically you." The argument concluded with Kourtney telling Kim, "It's like you're just a f*cking witch, and I f*cking hate you."

Though the two later reunite in a confessional and revisit their heated conversation, there still seems to be some tension. Clearly, viewers will see this feud continue throughout season four, though, hopefully, there's a final resolution. It appeared that the sisters semi-resolved their conflict, for now, as on June 24, Kim posted a twinning photo of her and Kourtney on Instagram from her daughter North West's 10th birthday party.

Then for Kim's birthday on Oct. 21, Kourtney shared a throwback photo with her sister on her Instagram Story alongside a tribute, per People, that read: "Happy happy birthday to my first sister. Thank you for all those years of bossing you around and you actually listening to all of my crazy ideas. People think the fights they've seen on tv are bad if only they got to witness the hair pulling, nail digging ones from early high school. The joys of sisterhood."

Kourtney continued, "I love you deeply forever and always. May God bless this year with love and happiness and abundant joy ❤️." The Poosh founder shared more old photos with Kim on her Instagram Stories, including one polaroid labeled "Halloween '87" in which the sister duo wore matching outfits and "K" sweatshirts. Kourtney captioned it, "Twinning since the beginning @kimkardashian."

Despite their differences on "The Kardashians," it seems Kim and Kourtney aren't letting them damage their relationship entirely. Though this wouldn't be the first time the Kardashian family's decision to partner with Dolce & Gabbana has ruffled some feathers, but not for the same reasons that upset Kourtney. The brand has a long history of racism and homophobia; for example, cofounders Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana reportedly told Italian magazine Panorama, "We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one," per Quartz. The brand also came under fire for an ad showing a Chinese model eating Italian food with chopsticks, among other controversies, though neither Kourtney nor Kim have addressed these issues.

New episodes of "The Kardashians" premiere on Thursdays on Hulu.
