The Kardashians and the Jenners seem to be America’s royal family. You can’t go anywhere without seeing the face of Kourtney, Khloe, Kim, Kylie, and Kendall. Occasionally, we’ll hear news about Rob or his parents as well. For the most part, America seems split on the topic of the Kardashians. Their haters are very vocal on all platforms on social media, always ready to mock the family and make fun of their lifestyle. Despite getting a lot of heat on the Internet, they’ve still managed to grow a multi-million-dollar industry, and it’s likely that they won’t be going away anytime soon.
Most people think that they’re all just a part of a wealthy family filled with privilege. While that is certainly true, that doesn’t mean that they haven’t experienced certain hardships of their own. They’ve all had moments that they feared for their lives and the lives of their children. Although they could probably buy anything they want, they aren’t free from death. Death does not discriminate, and it’s clear that the Kardashians are aware of this. We’ve managed to capture fifteen instances of times that they felt that might be it, with pictures to prove it!
This family has had so many blessings that none of us will ever experience, but they’ve still had some scary run-ins, believing they were coming face to face with Death himself. Here are 15 Times The Kardashians Feared For Their Lives (And Photos To Prove It):
14 Kim Gets Her Hair Pulled By A U.K. Prankster
You might recognize the images above of Kim Kardashian from a popular meme. Her face is always being used for different memes, but this one’s origin is a bit darker. The star’s face went viral after she was seen heading from her car into a show during Paris Fashion Week. A British man, Vitalii Sediuk, an ex-journalist, is the reason behind Kim’s face. During the paparazzi swarm as she exited her car, Vitalii ran up to Kim and pulled her hair, forcing her head back hard. She was with her mother and Kanye, and luckily, North wasn’t there that day.
Kim made it out without a scratch, but that doesn’t mean she wasn’t terrified when she felt someone tugging on her hair.
What kind of person does that? Vitalii is known for being a celebrity “prankster” if you categorize assaulting someone a prank.
13 Kendall Jenner Comes Face To Face With A Stalker
The Kardashian-Jenner crew has plenty of haters, fans, and obsessive stalkers. For the most part, their crazy fans keep to themselves, dedicating Instagram posts or sporting tattoos, there have been a few instances of people taking their love for the Kardashians too far, and some of the family members have run into their own stalkers. Kendall Jenner is one of the most recent members to have come face to face with a crazed fan in her own driveway!
The young model pulled into her California home only to see a random man wandering around. He approached her car, banging on her window.
He told her not to be afraid, however, as he didn’t have a weapon. Kendall wasn’t comforted and drove immediately away, seeking out help. He was arrested, and she’s since taken a restraining order against him, but she certainly feared for her life when she first ran into the scary man.
12 Kim Opens Up About What Happened In Paris
Kim Kardashian’s Paris attack was one of the scariest moments the family ever experienced. When the news first broke, everyone wondered what had happened in those moments she was tied up in her Paris hotel room. She went on to tell the story on the show saying, “The concierge was handcuffed with the key to my room. They said, 'Where's the rapper's wife? Let us up to her room' in French, so he ended up being our interpreter because I couldn't understand them, and they couldn't understand me. I was saying while I was being tied up, 'Are we going to die? Are they going to kill us?' I was crying, and I was like, 'Tell them I have babies.'
“They asked for money. I said, 'I don't have any money.' They dragged me out to the hallway to the top of the stairs. That's when I saw the gun, clear as day. And I was kind of looking at the gun, looking back down at the stairs and I was like,
'I have a split second in my mind to make this quick decision.'
Like, am I going to run down the stairs and either be shot in the back — it makes me so upset to think about it — but, like, they're either going to shoot me in the back or if I make it and they don't, if the elevator does not open in time, or the stairs are locked, I'm f*cked. There's no way out.”
11 Their Kids Have It Rough, Too
Kourtney was the first one to give Kris Jenner a grandchild, and by the end of 2018, she’ll have a total of eight grandchildren! There’s no doubt that these kids have it rough, too. They’re often caught up in their parents lifestyle, constantly being subjected to the paparazzi.
The paps have managed to capture a few scary pictures of their kids’ faces moments before falling, tripping, and living through other scary scenarios. There’s no doubt that when you see that look on their face, they feared for their lives.
Poor Penelope had an embarrassing moment after her mom opened the car door and hit her in the face. Kourtney was caught in another bad moment after North took a nosedive straight for the pavement! The kids haven’t had any terrible accidents, but here's hoping their moms will be a little more attentive in the future.
10 Chyna Feels The Kardashian Kurse
Blac Chyna isn’t a Kardashian, but she certainly came close. She was engaged to Rob Kardashian at one point and gave birth to his child last year. During the filming of their own E! show, Chyna’s pregnancy and labor were documented for fans. In one of the scenes, Chyna can be seen crying in her hospital bed moments before being sent to get a caesarian section. She already had one with her first son, King, with rapper Tyga. Having to go through it again can be difficult for a woman’s body, but it was the only way Chyna could give birth to her daughter, Dream. In her bed, she cries, holding nothing back as she reveals that she’s scared for her life and the life of her unborn baby. They both ended up being fine, but not without a stressful moment.
9 The Prankster Strikes Again
Kim Kardashian isn’t the only star who’s had an unfortunate run-in with the U.K. prankster Vitalii Seduik. He has also targeted stars like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio. In one viral video, he is seen lifting Gigi Hadid into the air from behind. She attacked him back, elbowing him in the face. In a recent stunt, yet again in Paris, he dived toward Kim Kardashian on her way to a fashion show. He attempted to kiss her butt, but her security guards quickly pushed him out of the way. After the incident, he posted on his Instagram, “I was protesting Kim for using fake butt implants.
I encourage her and the rest of Kardashian clan to popularize natural beauty among teenage girls who follow and defend them blindly.”
How is attempting to assault a woman ever a good idea? Hopefully, this guy gets sent to prison soon, because he certainly deserves to be there.
8 Rob Rushes To The ER After Experiencing Abdominal Pain
In 2011, when the Kardashian name was only still growing to what it is today, Rob Kardashian was rushed to the hospital with his mother. The scene was caught on camera and ended up airing on the show.
He had complained throughout the day of stomach pain, unable to eat or drink. The pain became so unbearable, his family started to fear for his health.
He ended up going to the hospital, where it was discovered that he needed to have his appendix removed. He ended up having a swift recovery, but not without first freaking his family out, leading them to believe that it could be it for their baby brother. A few years later, Rob would end up finding himself in the hospital again, this time, to welcome another Kardashian grandchild.
7 They Had An Incident In Montana
Although the Kardashians are certainly wealthy enough to afford ride-share trips like Uber, they’re always seen driving around in their expensive cars throughout California. Things turned a little more dangerous when Khloe decided to take to the driver’s seat during a trip in Montana. She, Kylie, and Kim can all be seen in the car in an episode when Khloe starts to drive off the road a bit.
She seems to keep her cool and control the car, but Kylie and Kim certainly feared for their lives.
The car did crash, but all of the girls managed to get out with nothing more than a scratch. Although these girls have proved to have been through quite a lot in their lives, the three girls in the photograph above claim that this is definitely one of their scariest moments.
6 Kourtney's House Was Infested With Tarantulas
On the most recent season of Keeping Up with The Kardashians, Kourtney opened up about her problem with spiders, and the cameras got some photographic evidence that her home is being completely taken over by mating tarantulas! Kim can be seen running from them, terrified of the giant bugs! These aren’t just small house spiders, but massive tarantulas! They have certainly proved that bugs do not discriminate and will infest even the wealthiest of residents. On the subject of spiders, Kourtney stated,
“I called pest control, they came, they sprayed two times! I just don't even know what to do. I swear, we're outside like 50 per cent of the time and I've already had the exterminator come out and spray.
I just won't be able to sleep at night. I will not feel comfortable until these tarantulas are completely gone."
5 Spiders Aren't The Only Animals Kim Fears
Kim Kardashian has explained in the past that she doesn’t have the best relationship with some animals. In the photograph above, you can certainly see her face as she fears for her life after an elephant just tried to smell her! It would be scary to have a run-in with the giant animal, but again, like many images on this list, Kim’s face has gone viral.
Kim was vacationing in Thailand when the elephant lifted its nose toward her and she was forced to run away.
This wasn’t the scariest experience she endured on the list, but by the look on her face, you can clearly see that she looks more horrified than she did at any of the other times we’ve mentioned in this article! It’s probably the last time she’ll try to take a photograph with an exotic animal.
4 Kris Causes Havoc
The Kardashian-Jenner sisters thought they lost their mom after hearing that she had been in a car accident. The front of her car was totalled, but Kris still managed to make it out okay. This family certainly proves that even the wealthy aren’t safe from car accidents. They like to show off their fancy rides, especially the youngest sister, Kylie. She seems to always have a new car that she likes to show off on her Snapchat. Although many people envy their cars and the automobiles they’re able to afford, they certainly aren’t jealous of their driving skills and ability to avoid a car accident! Luckily, none of the family members have lost their lives in any of these accidents, but one of them has killed someone else with their own vehicle.
In 2015, Caitlyn Jenner worried her family, yet again, after ending up in a fatal car accident. She was driving at the speed limit when she crashed into the back of a car, sending the hit car into the vehicle in front of it. The car in the middle of the accident was 70-year-old Kim Howe, who lost her life. The car that Howe hit also had a family of five. They all suffered injuries, with one of the children in the car being only 4 weeks old at the time of the accident.
That family ended up suing Kaitlyn and reached an $800,000 settlement.
Caitlyn was never charged with anything since she was going the speed limit and used her brakes at the time of the accident. Though none of the Kardashian-Jenners were harmed in the accident, someone still lost their life.
3 Rob's Diabetes Gets Scary
In 2016, during his relationship with Chyna, Rob found himself back in the hospital. After going through a massive weight gain,
Rob was diagnosed with diabetes and it hasn’t always been easy for him to manage. On top of that, he also suffers from depression which sometimes causes him to overeat.
He ended up going on a binge and was forced to check himself into the hospital after experiencing some serious symptoms of his diabetes. This time, he didn’t share his journey to the hospital with his social media fans. Instead, we can see Kris Jenner at the hospital wearing only her pyjamas. At least we hope that camouflage sweatsuit is her pyjamas. Rob ended up being fine again, but every time the family hears their brother is in the hospital, they fear for his life.
2 Kim's Pregnancy Was Risky
Kim Kardashian recently welcomed the birth of her third child, Chicago West. For this child, she decided to use a surrogate since her first two pregnancies were horrific. She had a terrible time throughout the nine months that she carried each of her children, sometimes fearing for her life as well as the life of her children. She didn’t know if either she or her third baby would be safe, so instead, she chose to use a surrogate.
“I'm going to keep it real: For me, pregnancy is the worst experience of my life! LOL! I don't understand one moment of it and I don't understand people who enjoy it. I'm not sure why I don't like the experience like others do.
Maybe it's the swelling, the backaches, or just how your body expands and nothing fits. I just always feel like I'm not in my own skin. It's hard to explain. I don't feel s*xy, either — I feel insecure and most of the time, I just feel gross.”
1 A Stalker Waits For Them Outside A Dash Store
Dash is a popular clothing store that the girls have owned together since before they were the royal family they are today. It was originally run by the sisters themselves, but they’ve had a large staff take over, evening getting their own series chronicling their work in the stores at one point.
That still hasn’t stopped crazy fans from entering the West Hollywood boutique. Not every crazy person is always a fan, however. They certainly have their fair share of haters as well.
In September of 2017, Marcia Medrano entered the Dash store and pointed a gun at two of the employees. She left, and police started searching for her. Two hours later, she returned with a machete, sticking it in the door and threatening to kill the entire family. She was eventually caught and arrested, but if the family had been at the store at the time, what would she have done?
