Khloe Kardashian responds to the backlash over Kim Kardashian's birthday trip

Amid the heat her sister Kim Kardashian is catching for her luxury birthday getaway, Khloe Kardashian wants her to focus on the beautiful experience. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Khloe addressed the criticism the 40-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is facing after organising a celebratory trip for upwards of 25 people – at a time when countries are facing renewed lockdowns to halt the spread of the virus. When asked about the flack Kim is now facing, Khloe told Ellen, "I haven't heard a lot about it, but I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town. There are frustrations going on for everybody, I get it, but also it's her 40th and this is something that she really wanted to do. For us, it was such a nice thing." According to a source, Kim chartered the Crystal Luxury Jet to fly guests privately to a tropical location. The reality star also seemingly cleared up speculation around Kylie Jenner's absence on the trip. A source told that the beauty mogul was in Houston with daughter Stormi Webster and ex Travis Scott.
