Kris Jenner:  Shoving A DNA Test Down Khloe's Throat Is Emotionally Abusive

Khloe Kardashian DNA Test

Kris Jenner, you relentlessly pursued Khloe and turned her siblings against her on the premiere of KUWTK, in order to force her to get a DNA test. How could you destroy mother/daughter trust like that for a tv show?

Kris Jenner – it was clear that you are have been selfishly putting the need to clear your own guilty conscience about your long ago affair ahead of Khloe‘s need for privacy, on the premiere episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, last night, May 20.

There was nothing positive for Khloe about having you repeatedly sow the seeds of insecurity in her on national TV. You were actually bullying her into taking an unwanted DNA test and it was shocking to watch- especially for all the mothers in your audience.

It was as shameless Kardashian behavior, as filing for divorce after 72 days without the groom being told beforehand. But the betrayal was far worse because you as a mother, were breaching the trust and privacy of your own child.Your daughter should be able to count on you protecting her to the nth degree, not selling her out for ratings. “Khloe needs to depend on her mother for unbiased advice and to act in her best interest,” agrees psychotherapist Dr. Gilda Carle, 30 Second Therapist on

Instead Kris – it was downright cruel of you to actually hire a doctor – Dr. John Taddie – who is a DNA expert, and invite him over to your home to first get DNA swabs of your other kids after convincing them to do it. This of course was done behind Khloe’s back. Even teens Kendall and Kylie had the sense to object. “I think my mother is going a little crazy over this and she shouldn’t if she knows the truth, points out sensible Kylie.

But Kris – you manipulated your children into agreeing to take DNA tests, and let’s make no bones about this – it was manipulation. You convinced them that Khloe “is tortured because she doesn’t really know in her mind who her real dad is,” and then added, “that’s no way to go through life, not knowing who your dad is.”

But there was not one shred of evidence Kris, that Khloe was in fact tortured. She repeatedly said that she didn’t need to get a DNA test – “my dad is my dad and my stepdad is my stepdad” and I’m 100 per cent fine with that.

Kris, then you had the nerve to actually ambush Khloe with Dr. DNA Test, when she came over to your house. Khloe was understandably upset and exasperated. “Leave me alone,” she insisted. “Seriously, my dad is Robert Kardashian and my other dad is Bruce Jenner and if you were f***ing other people at the same time, go on the Maury show!”
Good for you Khloe!

Kris, clearly it is YOU who are guilty over your behavior twenty-six years ago when you cheated on your then-husband Robert Kardashian. And while you refuse to take responsibility for talking about your affair in your book, Kris Jenner and All Things Kardashian, the public issue of Khloe’s parentage would NEVER be an issue if you hadn’t written about it. You keep innocently pointing the finger at Robert Kardashians’ two other wives – who married him after you. Yes, they accused you of getting pregnant with another man’s child – that would be Khloe. But honestly would they ever have spoken up if you hadn’t opened that door with that book? They kept quiet for all these years after all.

Now Khloe has to literally push Dr. DNA out of her way and fend off Kim who threatens her: “The only way I’ll get off your case is if you do it (take the DNA test)!”
No, Kris – it’s YOU who are torturing Khloe.

And it turns out, that it’s entirely to ease your own guilt. Kim finally confronts you after you complain that you are so “stressed out” over the DNA test that you can’t sleep (like we’d feel sorry for YOU!)
“My mom wants her reputation cleared,” Kim points out, and you admit that’s true. You are determined that the world knows that you were faithful to your husband when Khloe was conceived – no matter how incredibly harmful and truly stressful this all is to Khloe.” If this is Kris’s guilt, then she needs to deal with it and work it out on her own, ” agrees Dr. Gilda Carle.” What Kris is doing is emotionally abusive. I wonder how much of this is parental caring and how much is television grandstanding.”

Thank heavens Khloe has enough self confidence to withstand your relentless hounding which is full-on emotional abuse. She smartly stands firm in her DNA test refusal and says something far more mature than you ever utter in the episode: “I have had the blessing of having two phenomenal fathers and I don’t need a DNA test to prove it!”

Right on Khloe – and Kris, you and your DNA test, can take a hike!
