Once upon a time, the Kardashian sisters and Larsa Pippen were stuck like glue. Larsa began making appearances on Kourtney and Kim Take Miami back in 2011, and they became staples on each other's Instagrams around 2016. Since then, despite some reported ~drama~ behind closed doors, the Kardashians and Larsa Pippen's social media exchanges have been full of nothing but love. That's why it was so shocking when signs of a crack in their usually-solid friendship appeared in July 2020. Eagle-eyed fans noticed the Kardashians and Larsa were no longer following each other on Instagram and Twitter, and the revelation set off alarm bells that the pals were beefing.
Larsa briefly spoke out about unfollow-gate in an Instagram Story on July 23, claiming everyone involved was just busy and there was no drama. But her story changed in a Nov. 9 interview on The Hollywood Raw podcast, in which Larsa decided to get real about why she unfollowed the Kar-Jenner crew, placing direct blame on Kanye West.
"He literally has brainwashed the whole family into thinking that, I don't even know what," Larsa said. When it comes to Kim, specifically, who Larsa was closest with, she explained: "I just kind of felt like, do what's best for your family, you know? I love you. You and I are best friends. We've been through everything together. I would never do anything to jeopardize our relationship. We're like sisters. We're family. But if you have to unfollow me to make your home a better place, then do it, you know?" (The Kardashians’ team did not respond to Elite Daily’s previous request for comment on Pippen’s claims.)
Her somewhat cold (not to mention entirely evasive) tone was markedly different from the way she talked about her friends on social media in the past. Just take a look at all their gushiest posts about one another through the years, and how it all changed in 2020.
Larsa & Kourtney
July 2016: Kourt's Klosest Pal
From the start, it seemed like out of all of the Kardashians, Larsa was closest to Kourt. In one of their first-ever social media posts together, Kourtney honored Larsa on her 42nd birthday with a heartfelt post. "Happy birthday to my fly as hell boo!" she wrote on July 6. "I am so happy I got to celebrate with you today and for the past two weeks lol. I love you so much!"
Kim also posted for Larsa's birthday. In a since-deleted tweet, she wrote: "Happy Birthday to one of my best friends @larsapippen. You inspire me to do it all! Mom, wife, best friend & hottest Milf I know! I love you!!!!"
