Khloe Kardashian In Complex Magazine

Khloe Kardashian has always been the most outspoken of the Kardashian siblings. But is she taking it too far this time? In a new interview and photo spread for Complex magazine, Khloe talks her divorce from Lamar Odom, sisterhood, Kimye, Kris Jenner‘s sexytimes, Caitlyn’s new life, and more! 

Posing in a collection of scandalous lingerie and swimsuits, Khloe has nothing to hide – literally. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who still lives with reclusive brother Rob, describes herself as a lion and says of her family “These are my cubs.” Khloe swears she’ll do anything to defend them, from twitter fights with Kanye West‘s ex to publicly defending their kontroversial choices. “Don’t f–k with my cubs ’cause I will rip your head off,” she warns in the opening quote of the interview. Indeed.  


Most recently Khloe has been consistently going to bat for littlest sister Kylie Jenner, who is under constant scrutiny for her plastic surgery and her relationship with the much-older Tyga. “Kylie might be 17, but from what Kylie has been through and the life she lives, she’s not a normal 17-year-old,” protests Khloe. 

And Khloe supports Kylie’s lip job. “I knew it was one of her biggest insecurities. She used to always take pictures covering her mouth. I didn’t even know when she first did her lips,” remarks Khloe. “It wasn’t noticeable, then it started getting bigger and bigger. I guess that was something she just wanted. I always wanted a boob job and I wear a padded bra all the time.” Kylie continues to deny that she’s had a lip job, but that’s like Kim denying she had a butt injection. 

Khloe’s stance that Kylie is mature for her age, includes her relationship to Tyga, the 25-year-old rapper who is also the father of a two-year-old. “I think at 16 I was probably f–king someone that was in their 20s, for sure. I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them,” quips Khloe. That’s suppose to DEFEND Kylie’s behavior instead of making us wonder, as always, where the f–k is KRIS JENNER?! Khloe gets to that later…  

Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old,” continues Khloe. “Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their 30s. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.” I think that’s what makes it sad – Kylie should be going to prom instead of hanging out with ADULTS and looking older than her 35-year-old sister Kourtney

Because Kylie falls out of the jurisdiction of normal teens, Khloe is especially protective and she explains that’s what led her to lash-out at Amber Rose on twitter earlier this year. “I just feel like it was unnecessary for her to say anything,” says Khloe. “What I thought was crazy was she was telling my sister to act a certain way or have a curfew, but [she wasn’t] doing the same. So just don’t comment. How was I slut-shaming by saying don’t throw stones at glass houses? There was no slut-shaming. I am not one to slut-shame, I have done slutty behavior myself.” 

Speaking of which, with all the changes her family has been through this year the biggest one is Bruce’s transition to Caitlyn – one which Khloe had the hardest time adjusting to. “[Bruce and I] are the closest out of the Kardashian kids. I think what hurt me the most was that we as a family wanted to be a part of his transitioning. I could imagine that it’s so lonely. Don’t you want people to support you and be there with you? But then I don’t know if that’s a selfish request.”

None of us ever knew about his transition,” explains Khloe. “He spoke to us about six months prior [to the Diane Sawyer interview] and said that he’s always dressed up in women’s clothing. We used to find them. I just never told my mom because…we all didn’t know. There were always rumors that he was a crossdresser back in the ’80s. That was a different time; we didn’t know if it was some Studio 54 thing. But he never said he was transitioning. In his soul, I think he knew. He’s been the most amazing parent to any of us. When my dad was alive, we would pray for [Bruce] and say how great it is to have a stepdad who loves us like we’re his own kids.” 

Khloe describes having “full-blown anxiety” before filming the family’s About Bruce special out of fear that she would offend others or not come across appropriately. “I’m learning as we’re filming, so even my reaction is so aggressive and so protective. I’m so…I’m angry, I’m sad, I’m confused,” she admits. “You try going through that in real time, and see what your reaction is. You don’t know. You can’t control it.”

As for Kris, she too is struggling but wants Caitlyn to be happy. “I think she just wants to make sure that her life for 25-plus years is still valid,” consents Khloe. “I think the hardest part was feeling like so much was happening and we were the last to know. It’s a different relationship. It’s a different personality.” 

Now that Caitlyn is at peace with herself Khloe says the whole family is “so much happier.” Including Kris, who has moved on to much-younger man Corey Gamble. “And it is disgusting. It’s awkward,” complains Khloe. “Why is a 32-year-old, or whatever he is, why is he talking to a 50-fabulous-something woman? That’s just—and I say it to her all the time—weird. Hearing them have sex is wild and I’m traumatized.”

It’s, unfortunately not the first time Khloe has caught Kris in the act either! “When I was younger, I was hiding under my mom’s bed for some reason, and her and Bruce started having sex. I was there and I couldn’t leave. I had to stay until it was over.” That explains… so much. The horror!!! (Remember when Kourtney and Scott made a fake Kris and Bruce sex tape on KUWTK!? LOL)

Khloe also shared tidbits about the rest of her family. 

On Kanye: “Kim is so gorgeous and also a gorgeous person. What I love about Kanye is that he wants to build her up instead of take her down. I think men want to break her down so they can control her.”  

On Kanye Vs. Kris Humphries: “Kim being married to Kanye is a completely different Kim. Kim is so at peace with herself.  At the Humps’ wedding Kim was crazy. Then I saw her at her wedding to [Kanye], who I always said should be her husband, and she was so calm. No one else in the world could have the conversations that those two have.” 

On Scott & Kourtney: “Overall I love his progression and growth. You can’t deny how much he loves Kourtney, and I do think he tries. We’re very much involved in each other’s lives.”

On Her Relationship With Her Mom: “I’m nicer to her off camera. It’s almost as if on camera, I feel like she’s turning up a notch, so I’m turning my bitch up a notch, too.” 

On Her Eternal Love Of Lamar: “I think Lamar’s gonna always be that person [for me] but that’s what made it so special. Even if I had it for five years or whatever, it was the best ever and I’m grateful I did. Some people don’t get that ever and I had that magic for a long time.”

“I talk to Lamar as often as I can, which is inconsistent, but not on my terms. When you genuinely feel like that was the right relationship, you’re supposed to give it all you can.”

On Still Missing Lamar: “Oh my god, I miss him every day. I miss what we had—things we got to do together are just memories. I like looking back and holding on to that stuff.” 

On Why It Took So Long To Sign Divorce Papers: “I’m not rushing into my divorce because I’m not looking to get married tomorrow, so I don’t have a deadline. So when it’s time and it’s supposed to happen, it will.” 

On Moving On After Divorce: “I don’t know if I believe in rebounds, unless you just sleep with someone for a night or two. They’re just people you can laugh and have a good time with. My life is so serious, or always moving so fast, it’s fun to have that outlet to enjoy and let your hair down and not worry about things.” 

On Getting Along With Exes: “Like, if someone has seen my vagina, I think it’s OK that I say hi and give him a hug hello.” 

On Learning To Love Her Body: “I don’t know if I’m ever gonna feel like ‘Daaamn, you look good,’ but I’ve never felt as comfortable in my own skin than I do now.” 

Well, that’s that – Khloe has nothing to hide! More photos from the interview are below.
