Kris Jenner proves there’s truly nothing like words of wisdom from a loving mother as the advice she gave to her daughter, Kim Kardashian, following her divorce enlightened us greatly.
BuzzFeed reports that the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch recently sat down with The Daily Telegraph to to talk about both herself and her role as a mother for one of the most famous families in Hollywood history. Though it’s hard juggling her own issues and being there for her kids, Jenner makes it work, hence why she had little to no issue being there for her daughter when she needed her the most.
In the interview, Kris Jenner reflects on how she and her family supported Kim Kardashian while the SKIMS founder was in the thick of her rocky divorce from Kanye West.
“When any one of us is going through something big in our lives, it’s really important for us to understand they’re not always going to have a lot of other people who are going to understand the situation,” Jenner expresses. “So we try to be there for her and pay attention to what’s going on.”
In addition to lending a helping hand, Jenner informs the media outlet of the advice she shares with Kardashian and the rest of her children whenever the noise of the public gets too much for them to handle. Jenner states:
"The first thing I said to them when we started our show 15 years ago was, “Don’t go online. Don’t read the negativity.” These are people who are obviously very unhappy in their own lives when they’re going online, saying ugly things.My grandmother used to always say, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.” Those people, being bullies online, is always so shocking to me – that people have the desire to go criticise other people and sit behind the keyboard."
Kris Jenner’s amazing advice is something we’re assuming Kardashian took to heart because, during the climax of her drama with West over their divorce, the 41-year-old celebrity seldom spoke online about her situation. One of the few times she chose to do so was when West claimed Kardashian was keeping his children from him and when West took not-so-nice jabs at his ex-wife’s parenting style when it came to North West’s use of TikTok.
“Kanye’s constant attacks on me in interviews and on social media is actually more hurtful than any TikTok North may create,” Kardashian posted on her Instagram Story at the time. “Divorce is difficult enough on our children and Kanye’s obsession with trying to control and manipulate our situation so negatively and so publicly is only causing further pain for all.”
Ever since the public was exposed to just how vicious online attacks can be, even from those you love, it seems things have died down between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West–on the internet, at least.
A mother’s wisdom saves the day once again.
