‘I don’t know if you can do that, but if you can’t do that, it is OK.
‘I don’t mind if I have nothing, I do have everything. Well, I have everything I need, thank you.’

Samantha said that lockdown wasn’t easy for Kourtney because she was unable t see her brothers, who both live in Cheshire
Speaking about how the lockdown affected her daughter, Samantha said: ‘ During the lockdown, Kourtney has been through a mixture of emotions.
‘She has been really up and down with her moods. She hates the restrictions and misses the family as both of my brothers live in Cheshire so we haven’t seen them for a while.
‘She’s also struggled with all the new changes that have taken place at school due to government guidelines.’
Samantha also said she became emotional after discovering her daughter’s note: ‘I cried with sadness at how she is feeling due to Covid restrictions but also at how thoughtful and selfless she is.’
