Kylie Jenner threw shade at Kim Kardashian on Instagram and everyone noticed

If you're a fan of the Kardashian family, you'll know there has been dissent in the ranks recently - and by that, we mean some seriously shady behaviour from both Kim and Kourtney.

The defining moment in the recent battle came when the pair of sisters had an explosive row that later aired on Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The fight saw the siblings coming to blows over scheduling as Kim attempted to coordinate a family photo shoot with all Kardashians/Jenners present.

Things got extremely heated as 37-year-old mother-of-three became annoyed with Kourtney, who was unwilling to rearrange her schedule to make it to the photo-op. First Kim attacked Kourtney's work ethic, shouting: "Maybe if you had a f*cking business that you were passionate about then you would know what it takes to run a f*cking business, but you don't, so don't even act like you know what I'm talking about."

However, things were about to get worse for Kourtney, who was further blasted by Kim when she left the room - and this time, Kim wasn't playing around. "I need Kourtney to not be so f*cking annoying with a stick up her ass like she f*cking runs this sh*t, because she doesn’t, "she said. "She’s the least exciting to look at, so she can be out."

Drama, drama, right? It all sounds pretty serious - but if you know the Kardashians, you know that no matter how critical things get, one of them is always there to stir the pot and throw even more shade. Enter, Kylie Jenner.

The recent birthday girl made her alliances clear when she sneakily roasted Kim in a comment on Instagram. The comment in question was found on a picture Kourtney had uploaded to social media of herself all glammed up for Kylie's 21st birthday party. Wearing a purple, cleavage-bearing dress, the 39-year-old looked fabulous - and her little sister let her know this by writing "Happy birthday ❤️❤️ you're so interesting to look at".

Of course, fans of the family saw the comment straight away and began eating up the theatrics. Most saw it as the perfect combination of sisterly love between Kylie and Kourtney, and subtle shade thrown by Kylie at Kim's rude past behaviour.

Although much has been made of the fight between Kylie and Kim in the press, the sisters have denied that they are entangled in a fued, with Kim writing on social media: "dont ever get it twisted, me, Kourtney and Khloe are GOOD! ALWAYS!!!! Never question that!"

Their battle - which also made its way onto Twitter - is heavily rumoured to be a publicity stunt to promote the 15th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. These rumours will no doubt be fueled by the most recent trailer for the show, which appears to show a tearful Kourtney on the verge of quitting as she says "I don’t even want to be around my sisters. They just don’t have my back" and claims she is "not up" for filming another season.

So, could Kourtney be out of the Kardashian clan? Somehow, we doubt it...
