Things took a dramatic turn during the Season 18 premiere of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians." Kourtney Kardashian and Kim Kardashian, aged 40 and 39 respectively, got into a physical altercation after an argument about work ethic.
It all began when Kourtney insinuated that she no longer wants to be part of the show. Kourtney found herself struggling to get back at work after spending a month in Italy with her children.
"I honestly don't want to film like, ever again," Kourtney relayed to her sister, Khloe Kardashian.
During a sit down with Kourtney, Kim and Khloe confronted their older sister about her "negativity" and "bad vibes." Although Kourtney defended that she's just joking around, Khloe accused her of being rude.
"Let's just move on," Kourtney said.

"But I can't just move on from everything and let you be an a******* forever," Khloe said.
As Kim and Khloe continued to make their case, Kourtney revealed in a confessional that she felt ganged up on.
"For years, it used to be Khloe and I against Kim. And for the last, maybe, three years, it's just been such a different dynamic where it's Kim and Khloe against me," she said.
What seemed to have set off Kourtney is the fact that Kim smiled throughout her clap back.

"I will literally f*** up," Kourtney threatened Kim.
"What the f*** is wrong with you?" a shocked Kim inquired. "Don't ever come at me like that. I swear to God, I'll punch you in your face."
As Khloe tried to diffuse the situation, a punch was thrown and scratches were exchanged. In a shocking turn of events, amid ongoing insults from both sides, Kim slapped Kourtney several times.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the sisters' mother Kris Jenner scolded her kids for their behaviour. The 64-year-old said she was mortified when she saw the scene.
“I wasn’t there when they had that argument. And I have not seen them really fight like that since they were in high school,” Kris said.

“There was one time, I think it was way back when, when Kim … did anybody see when Kim beat one of the kids over the head with her purse because her rims on her car weren’t right, it was so silly. It took me back to that, but it made me really sad.”
