KHLOE Kardashian has been criticized for claiming she shares responsibility for her niece Dream with her brother Rob.
Critics claimed that Dream’s mother, Blac Chyna, would be “angry” if she saw Khloe being like a “third parent” to the six-year-old.
Khloe, 38, opened up about her dynamic with Dream on the latest episode of The Kardashians.
During Dream’s sixth birthday party, Scott Disick told Khloe, “I just can’t believe you’re basically kind of a co-parent to Dream.”
Khloe smiled and said, “I mean…” while Scott continued, “You’re more than just an aunt.”
The Good American founder replied: “Probably more than one aunt. Third parent only. The third wheel.”
Khloe added in a confessional, “Dream is one of my babies too just like the others and I absolutely love being a mom to others.”
The reality star has two children with her ex Tristan Thompson – daughter True, five, and son Tatum, 11 months.
She continued, “I love mothering people. It’s in my blood to be a mother. I wouldn’t want it any other way.”
“I think I’m the third parent to Dream. I know how important it is for Dream to have a big maternal influence, whether it’s from me or her own mother or whoever.”
Blac Chyna was first linked to Khloe’s brother Rob in January 2016 and gave birth to Dream in November of the same year.
After dating off and on while parenting Dream, they split for good in 2017.
In 2020, they agreed to take turns taking custody of the child on a weekly basis.
The Kardashians viewers were shocked by Khloe’s claim that she was like a “third parent” to Dream.
One wrote on Reddit, “It’s grotesque that she has allowed herself to publicly state that she is basically a mother to Dream, while Dream has a living breathing mother who she lives with for half her life!”
Another added, “My jaw dropped when I saw Khloe talking bad about Dream’s mom and claiming to be Dream’s third parent.”
“The audacity, Dream has a mother and you are her aunt, nothing more, nothing less.”
“Dream will see that when she’s older and I hope she’ll give her loads of shit for it.”
A third viewer slammed Khloe for seemingly “keeping Blac Chyna away from every milestone Dream celebrates.”
Chyna and Rob’s arrangements for ‘Dream’ made headlines last year when the model claimed she didn’t receive child support from the KUWTK star.
The 33-year-old tweeted: “Yesterday I had to give up three of my cars… my reasons… morals, beliefs, being a single mom, no support, I’m a MAMA.”
She repeated her statement in a second tweet, writing, “Single people with no child support.”
Rob hit back: “I pay 37,000 a year for my daughter’s school. I take care of all medical expenses.”
“I pay for all of her extracurricular activities. I have my daughter from Tuesday to Saturday. Why should I pay child support lol.”
