However, this isn’t the first time Kim has taken a Kardashian Krisis into her own hands.

In fact, in an interview last year Kim revealed that she would consider PR as an alternative career, saying: “Sometimes I wonder what I would be doing if I had a different career path. Everyone who knows me really well says that I would be a good publicist. I think the PR world is really interesting and over the years I've definitely learned a lot about it.”

And, over recent years, she’s navigated the Kardashian/Jenner family through multiple public controversies.

Kim said: “Everyone has to just not be blasting everyone on social media. It's petty as fuck. I just want everyone to be respectful and the social media part makes everyone look bad. I just think we've got to keep it tighter and not have this internal arguing that we bring out to the world.”

You may remember that after the furore surrounding Kanye's song, “Famous,” in which he referenced having sex with Taylor Swift. While he maintained that she'd known about the lyric, Taylor publicly denied approving the words “that bitch.” As the internet lost its mind over the song, Kanye was secretly recorded having a meltdown backstage at Saturday Night Live during which he repeatedly called Taylor “fake.”
