Is Kim Kardashian pushing her family away?

Considering all the crazy attention Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's baby North has been getting, it makes sense that her older cousin, Mason Disick, would be feeling a little jealous.

Mason's mom Kourtney Kardashian recently opened up about how much her daughter, Penelope seems to love Baby North. She even referred to the two as "besties." But that doesn't seem to be the case with her son Mason, who's not exactly loving all the attention his new cousin has been receiving lately.  Hmmm … could the lack of attention he's receiving from Kim have anything to do with her now distancing herself from her family for PR reasons?

"He gets a little jealous because he and Kim were so close. He doesn't understand because he's not the big center of attention," Kourtney told People. "I don't think [Kim ] knows what to do ... She feels like he is getting older and changing, and I think she gets confused and doesn't know how to handle it. He's like, 'Why don't you like me anymore?' cause he sees her with the baby."

But Kim isn't just busy with baby North these days, she's also attempting to branch out on her own. According to reports, she recently signed with Slate PR co-founder Ina Treciokas after splitting with her longtime publicist Jill Fritzo who is still representing the rest of her family. Supposedly, she did it because she "wants to set herself apart from the Kardashian p.r. machine, and Kanye West advised her to build her own team." Of course he did, because God forbid Kim makes a decision that's not influenced by Kanye or her micro-managing mom, Kris Jenner!

I'm not by any means surprised that Kim is doing this. After the whole drug scandal with Khloe's husband, Lamar Odom, it's probably a smart move. I just hope this isn't going to affect Kim's relationship with her extended family. Hopefully Mason is only feeling jealous because she has had her hands full with North and not because she's been spending less time with him and the rest of the Kardashians.

I'm curious to see how Kim's new career move is going to play out now. Could this be the end of the Kardashian empire as we know it? Who knows. But I have a gut feeling it might be!
