Kris Jenner started raising children long before "helicopter parenting" was a common expression, so in a sense, she's a real trailblazer.
Kris was controlling every aspect of her kids' lives before it was popular, and she's showing no signs of letting up now that they're adults.
Obviously, Kris still micro-manages every aspect of her kids' careers, but her influence doesn't stop at sex tapes and Fit Tea endorsement deals.
No, Kris is very much involved in her kids' personal lives, too, and these days that means attending to main responsibilities:
Seeing that Kylie's pregnancy goes smoothly, and keeping up her lifelong efforts to ensure Rob doesn't completely go off the rails.
As you've probably heard, Rob's breakup with Blac Chyna wasn't exactly an amicable affair.
And by that, we mean Rob posted nude photos of Chyna without her consent and stalked and harassed her to the point that she was forced to file for a restraining order.
You'd think the fact that Chyna has taken legal action to distance herself from the Kards would send a message that the whole family should just back off.
Unfortunately, Kris and company are too pissed off to take the hint, likely as a result of the fact that Blac is suing the entire Kardashian family, while simultaneously fighting for sole custody of daughter Dream.
So the fact that Kris has allegedly hired a private investigator to tail Chyna and offer reports on her behavior really doesn't come as much of a surprise.
“They want vengeance not because Chyna hurt Rob but because she insulted the family and dragged their name through the mud," a source close to the situation tells Star magazine.
“They’ve got the inside track of what Chyna’s doing 24/7 and won’t rest until they see Chyna go down in flames," the insider adds.
It may seem excessive, but the thing is, it's not enough for the Kards to beat Chyna in court.
As it is, their victory is pretty much guaranteed.
(Let's not forget that this is the family that first rose to prominence for its role in getting freakin' OJ acquitted. They know good lawyers.)
No, Kris' goal at this point is to keep this thing from ever going to trial.
She's got Blac in the position where if she does anything remotely embarrassing in the next few months, she'll leave herself vulnerable to being blackmailed.
And this, folks, is one of the many reasons you don't mess with Mama Kris.
