Whether you're a fan or not, it's no secret that the Kardashians dominate pop culture. From their hit reality show to their breakouts into the beauty and fashion industries - no area of the glamorous celeb world seems to have gone untouched by the famous family.

It's also no secret that the sisters have had their fair share of squabbles over the years, but we hadn't seen anything like when Kim hit Kourtney in the face on air.

Now, Kim has spoken out about the brawl and what she's had to say is actually quite shocking... Keep scrolling to watch the clip of her addressing the situation.

They've all starred in one of the most successful realities shows of all time and each of the sisters has a massive influence on social media.

The Kardashian-Jenners are more than just influencers, though.

They're truly impressive entrepreneurs and businesswomen. Whatever you think about them, you can't deny that they've done well for themselves.

Especially coming from pretty humble beginnings.

Sure, they've always had an element of wealth and fame - but back when Keeping Up With The Kardashians started, the sisters certainly weren't the biggest Hollywood success story.

And more and more, the family are being respected as major players, particularly in the realms of fashion and beauty.

Now, they're one of the most famous families on the planet.

And let's be honest, they have the lavish life to show for it - inviting viewers to watch every scandal, drama, and luxury holiday unfold on screen.

But there are some things that they just can't seem to get right.

The Kardashian clan can't seem to avoid controversy at every turn. Skeptics might even suspect they actually court it.

The sisters have been called out time and time again.

One classic reason? The family seems to have a pretty relaxed stance on the rather serious issue of cultural appropriation.

Oh, and who can forget the allegations of blackfacing?

Kim's recent photoshoot certainly caused a stir.

But that hasn't been their only issue.

Many like to point at youngest sister, Kylie as a really poor example for young girls to look up to, thanks to her propensity for surgery and money-grabbing ways.

In fact, this is something all the sisters have faced criticism for.

They've all been under fire for their shilling of sketchy diet products... And the fact that they all have so much money that they enjoy flaunting regularly consistently lands them in hot water.

But despite all of the negativity...

The Kardashians continue to be one of the most famous, and the most loved, families in the world.

season 18 of KUWTK has just started airing.

And fans left stunned when they saw the preview before it aired...

Why?

Kim and Kourtney appear to have a major bust-up, and when the drama reaches new heights, things become physical.

The siblings have had their fair share of disagreements over the years...

Remember when Khloe and Kourtney wanted to sue Kim for creating a perfume on her own?

Or this iconic moment all the way back from season 1?

This is still very much ingrained in our memory.

But the latest family bust-up is undoubtedly one of the worst...

Yep, it's pretty bad...

Kim and Kourtney have always had a love-hate relationship with each other.

So we aren't entirely surprised that the pair have had yet another disagreement.

As things begin to get heated, Kim throws a punch at her sister.

There have been mixed reactions to the fight.

Some were living for the drama, whereas others are adamant it is staged for publicity.

Over the weekend, Kourtney spoke out.

Kourtney broke her silence on the brawl between her and Kim after fans went online calling it "cringeworthy."

She responded to a tweet by Rob Kardashian.

The tweet, by Rob, nicknamed Kourtney the "nail digger," and it seems Kourtney quite liked the way it sounded, so she adopted it as her own. "Kourtney “the nail digger" Kardashian weighing in at 108 pounds… Kim “the kicker" Kardashian West weighs in at 128 pounds…"

People have their theories.

And many believe that it was the fight that made Kourtney decide to pack her bags and quit the show.

Kourtney commented on the theory too.

She wrote: "It is from our darker moments where growth happens."

But Khloe thinks she'll be back.

Commenting on her decision to leave the family, Khloe wrote: " It feels like a revolving door – so Kourtney might leave this week but she’ll come back. They always come back."

And today, Kim has finally spoken out about her and Kourtney's on-screen bust-up.

The star addressed the situation during an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show.

Kim revealed that production on the show actually had to be shut down for a week after the fight...

"I think everyone was really shook for a minute and was like this isn't our type of show, what's happening?" she said. "We want everyone to be comfortable and safe." And that wasn't all...

The reality star also revealed that her mom, Kris Jenner, cried after seeing the clip.

"She was like, who are you guys? What is going on?" Kim revealed.

She also revealed what initially triggered the fight with her sister.

"She's not the type of person to make a decision and say, 'Okay guys, I'm not gonna film.' But she would come to work with an attitude every day, kind of take it out on everyone from the crew to us and wouldn't really make that decision," Kim explained. "So we would kind of just keep on pushing her to figure out why she was so unhappy."

And when Kourtney did explode...

"I don't really ever resort to violence like that but she scratched me so hard, which you guys didn't see. "When I looked down at my arm and saw that she had really scratched me and I felt it all on my back, I just went over and slapped her back."

According to Kim, the fight was even worse in real life.

And she admitted it wasn't her "proudest moment."
