'Crisis talks': Kim Kardashian looked tense on Monday afternoon as she arrived at what looked like a family conference amid the widespread backlash to her refusal to cut ties with Balenciaga

Kim Kardashian looked tense on Monday afternoon as she arrived at what looked like a family conference following the conclusion of her divorce from Kanye West, even as she battled widespread backlash to her refusal to cut ties with Balenciaga.

The 42-year-old reality star–turned–fashion icon appeared to cast aside her usual haute couture looks in favor of casual gray sweats while meeting up with momager Kris Jenner and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian at Kourtney’s husband Travis Barker’s DTA Records Studio in Calabasas, California.

Rather than celebrating Kim’s divorce finalization, which sees her getting $200,000 per month from the disgraced rapper, the Kardashian–Jenner clan has been engulfed in scandal due to their close relations to the fashion house after Balenciaga released a disturbing holiday ad campaign featuring child models posing with its Plush Toy Bag, which resembled teddy bears dressed in BDSM gear.

In the photo shoot, the children also appeared to be surrounded by empty wine and champagne glasses, further contributing to the disturbing setting.

Kim’s crisis meeting attire including a simple, nondescript gray hoodie, which she paired with matching sweatpants.

She stuck to a low-key theme with a pair of plain white sneakers, and she continued to show off her long platinum blond–dyed hair, which she wore tied back in a low-slung bun.

The Kardashians star had a prominent middle part that revealed her raven roots peaking through. 

She was seen stepping out of her silver luxury vehicle as she arrived for the family meeting.

She didn’t seem to take a pause and could be seen chatting on the phone as she stepped out of the car and made her way into the studio. 

Joining the meeting was the family matriarch Kris Jenner, who wore a chic yet business-ready suit.

The 67-year-old businesswoman and manager’s outfit was a cross between a military uniform and a Mandarin suit with its single-breast design and a row of large buttons running up the front and cuffs with red patches and stripes.

She paired it with matching black slacks and chunky black shoes, and her jet black pixie cut was swept up messily in the breeze.

Kris included her taste for luxury by carrying along a plain black Hermès Birkin bag.

Kourtney had on a much more casual look as she arrived at the studio in her black Mercedes SUV.

She wore a puffy black cropped jacket with thick sleeves, and she paired it with figure hugging black pants that were enlivened with silver buttons over the crotch and flared legs.

She wore her dark hair tied down tightly with some strands dangling dramatically over her face, and she slipped on a pair of wraparound sunglasses.

Like Kim, she took a call as she entered the studio.

Her husband Travis appeared to have already been in the building, as he wasn’t seen entering with her.

Kris breamed as she was seen entering the studio when she noticed her daughter Khloé Kardashian heading up to the front door.

Khloé opted for the most low-key, nondescript ensemble of the group.

The Revenge Body star appeared to do a little bow to her mother while showing off her black-and-white Nike basketball sneakers.

She could have disappeared into any crowd with her plain black oversize sweatshirt that hung loosely on her trim frame, along with similarly baggy sweatpants.

Her long blond hair cascaded down her back and peaked out from her black ski cap, and she obscured her impeccably made-up face with black sunglasses. 

Khloé appeared to be twinning with her mother, as both seemed to carry the same style of black Birkin Bag, though the former partner of Tristan Thompson also held a massive water bottle in her pointy burgundy-colored claws.

They would have seemingly been more optimistic after Kim was reported on Tuesday to have finalized her divorce from Kanye West after nearly two chaotic years, according to TMZ.

The exes had finally reached an agreement over custody of their four children, as well as they parenting plans and the division of their multimillion-dollar real estate portfolio following repeated attempts by West to slow down the proceedings, which saw him firing multiple attorneys along the way.

According to documents viewed by the publication, Kim will be getting $200,00 per month from her ex-husband.

Split: Kim was seen just a day before TMZ reported that she and Kanye West had finalized their divorce. He will reportedly pay her $200,000 per month in child support, and they have also divided their assets and properties; seen in 2016 in NYC

The Kardashian–Jenner clan has been known to film its family meetings for both Keeping Up With The Kardashians and its bigger-budget Hulu follow-up The Kardashians, though they didn’t appear to be followed by cameras while outside the studio. 

Kim and her mother and sisters were subsequently seen leaving the studio later in the evening, after the sun had gone down.

Although it is unclear why the family were meeting, they were gathered as Kim has been lambasted by critics for her refusal to cut ties with the embattled fashion house Balenciaga.

The brand, which has used Kim as its most high-profile ambassador, came under fire after releasing its holiday 2022 ad campaign.

The photoshoot including disturbing images of young children posing with Balenciaga’s Plush Toy Bag. The bag was designed to look like a colorful teddy bear, but covered in black straps resembling BDSM gear.

The children themselves didn’t appear to be in sexualized positions or clothing, but the photoset included other disturbing details.

Eagle-eyed viewers noted that they were empty wine glasses and champagne flutes decorating the room where the children were photographed.
