Season 18 has landed and the Kar-Jenners are feistier than ever before.

In the first episode of the new series that debuted last weekend, fans were shocked to see an intense row break out between Kim and Kourtney Kardashian that saw the pair get physically violent.

After rising each other up over work ethic and Kourtney’s indecisiveness as to whether she wants to leave the show or not, the pair ended the episode with a fight which had to be broken up by sister Khloe Kardashian.

Now, reflecting on the fight which was filmed last year, Kim spoke to Jimmy Fallon from her mother’s dressing room on The Tonight Show: Home Edition.

Revealing that the brawl wasn’t just for dramatic effect, Kim explained that Kourtney “scratched her so hard, she was bleeding.”

“It was pretty intense. I feel it was a lot of built up resentment from Kourtney or just feeling like she doesn’t want to film anymore,” explained Kim.

“She’s not the type of person to make a decision, and say ‘Okay guys, I’m not going to film,’ but she would come to work with an attitude everyday, and kind of take it out on everyone and the crew and to us and wouldn’t really make that decision, so we would kind of like keep on pushing her, to figure out why she was so unhappy.”

Kim then went on to add that momager Kris Jenner cried after she saw the fight play out on tape and then “shut down production” for a week after that.

“It’s not my proudest moment, but we were going through it, and she’s made the decision to take time off now, and I think she really needs it and I think that will be so much better for her,” the mom-of-four added after circulation began to mount that Kourtney had finally said goodbye to the show.

Will she take on a micro role like Kendall? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, we’ll miss her a lot!
