The 36-year-old reality star, who had just arrived in New York for an event to honor her late father, received a phone call from one of Kanye’s friends as she sat in the hotel with Kourtney and her mother Kris Jenner.
Kim, who had been out of the public eye since the Paris robbery, was visibly shocked as she listened to what her husband’s friend had to say.

‘Why? What’s going on?’ she asked, open mouthed.
Breaking down in tears she asked: ‘What’s wrong? Don’t scare me, please. What’s going on?’
Sobbing as her sister and mother watched, she added: ‘I can’t,’ before the episode ended and declared it was ‘to be continued’.
Earlier in the episode, fans saw Kim venturing out for the first time since the robbery to Kanye’s show at The Forum in Los Angeles.

She told her mother: ‘I don’t have any energy to put on clothes or make up,’ before greeting family and friends including singer Katy Perry.
Katy, who hugged Kim and asked how she was, told Kris: ‘Everything is a lesson. Every relationship is a lesson, every experience, every trauma is a lesson.’
Kris replied: ‘She’s so strong and she can get through this. She teaches me something every day.’

Kim, however, was clearly uncomfortable at the event and returned to the backstage area after watching just a few songs.
She explained: ‘Feeling the vibe of the crowd, I’m really nervous. I now think everyone has a weapon or everyone is going to do something harmful. I just now have this anxiety. I just want to disappear for a little bit.’
Khloe, meanwhile, opened up to her mother about why her relationship with Caitlyn has been strained since Bruce transitioned to become a woman.

‘There’s not an issue,’ she said. ‘I’m cordial, I’m nice, it’s not that, not mean. If I don’t vibe with you, I don’t vibe with you.
‘I don’t like how you treat my mother. I don’t like how you treat me. I don’t care if you’ve transitioned or not. She’s not the stepdad I once had,’ Khloe said.
After finally persuading Khloe to sit down and talk through their issues, Caitlyn said: ‘I feel like over the last year and a half we have grown apart.

‘Day after day after month after month nobody calls, nobody checks in. You can’t help but sit there and think ‘is it because I transitioned? They don’t like me anymore?’
Khloe explained: ‘For me, you’re all I remember. Bruce was. So not having you in my life is a huge blow.
‘My second dad – this guy that I’ve grown up with that raised me – was taken away from me, but no one really let me have that.

Candid conversation: Khloe told Caitlyn that she needed to transition into accepting her
‘I need to transition into accepting because to me you are two different people. I don’t know if that’s politically correct to say,’ Khloe said.
A tearful Caitlyn told Khloe: ‘Your feelings are important and that’s how you feel’ and they both agreed to work harder at their relationship.
The Kardashian tongues were also wagging after the family visited Rob, Blac Chyna and new baby Dream at the hospital and learned that Kourtney and Scott were going on vacation to Mexico together.

Scott, sitting in the delivery room, quipped: ‘This time next year we’ll be back here with our fourth. We’re all excited about it.’
Kourtney laughed awkwardly and said: ‘That’s not true guys.’
A stunned Khloe later asked Kim: ‘It’s so weird. Who goes to Mexico with their ex with just your kids?’
Baby talk: Scott Disick joked about returning to the hospital again for a fourth child with Kourtney
So weird: Khloe could not believe that Scott and Kourtney were vacationing together in Mexico
‘Unless there was any chance of getting back together, I would never go on vacay,’ Kim replied.
‘I don’t know what the f*** is going on,’ Khloe said. ‘Cabo is romantic. This seems like an intimate vacation, which is great. I would love for them to have their family back together as long as Scott acts right.’
Khloe quizzed Scott about the trip when they returned to LA and asked if he and Kourtney were reconnecting.
Good question: Scott was quizzed by Khloe about getting back together with Kourtney
‘Yeah. I think so,’ he said. ‘We’ve made future plans to do things together.’
Asked whether they kissed on the lips, Scott faltered: ‘I probably did. She didn’t. I don’t know that she wants anything to do with me. It’s a one way street.’
He told the camera: ‘The trip to Mexico was very successful. It felt like old times. It was great to see all the kids swim and have fun and, truthfully, I’m not really sure why we’re not together. It seems like it’s all the same. It’s a little confusing.’

Scott’s good mood, however, was short lived when Kourtney told Khloe he had described her as ‘over the hill’ in Mexico.
As the sisters scolded him, Scott stormed off and said: ‘I’m getting out of here. This f***ing trip was f***ing worthless.’
He later told Khloe and Kim he had not been seeing anyone else and was struggling to get over Kourtney.

‘I just don’t feel comfortable,’ he said. ‘It’s tough sometimes. I feel like I will never be over her. She’s the love of my life. I feel like I try to do everything to be there for her and there’s no appreciation for anything ever.’
Khloe continued to quiz Kourtney about her ex and asked if she would like to have another baby, to which she replied ‘I don’t know’.
‘It’s not a definitive yes or no?’ a stunned Khloe asked. ‘I would have sworn you would have said absolutely not. What would do with another one?’
Baby talk: Khloe also quizzed Kourtney and asked if she wanted another baby
Kourtney told Khloe that she and Scott were not back together and her sister warned her that this might be news to him.
‘I don’t think Scott thinks you’re not,’ Khloe said. ‘I think for Scott every trip is ”I’m that much closer”. In a way it’s leading him on.’
Kourtney said: ‘I love going on these trips together but maybe it’s too much for him to handle.’
Keeping Up With The Kardashians continues next week on the E! channel.
