Kim Kardashian‘s 10-year-old daughter, North, has a favorite parent and she’s not afraid to admit it.
“North will go to her dad’s [Kanye West] and she [will say], ‘Dad’s is the best. He has it all figured out. He doesn’t have a nanny or a chef or security. He lives in an apartment,’” Kim, 43, said in a joint confessional with Kourtney Kardashian during a new episode of The Kardashians, which started streaming on Thursday, November 2. “And she will start crying, ‘Why don’t you have an apartment? I can’t believe we don’t have an apartment.’”
Kourtney, 44, empathized with her sister by sharing her experience with kids Mason, 13, Penelope, 11, and Reign, 8, whom she shares with ex Scott Disick.
“They do that at Scott’s too. Like, ‘Dad has the best house. Your house sucks. He has the best house, it is not super big. The vibes are better,’” the Poosh founder shared. “I feel like everything falls on the parent that is more involved.”
