Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kim Richards' infamous pit bull, Kingsley, has returned to her home, despite the dog’s recent history of violent attacks. Will her decision tear her and sister Kyle apart for good?
A source told RadarOnline.com exclusively, "Kingsley was returned to Kim's house in the last few weeks. She is happy to have the dog back."
The dog was sent to a trainer after it attacked Kim's sister, Kyle’s 18-year-old daughter Alexia last November. The aggressive pooch had also previously attacked Kim’s "second mother," 80-year-old Kay Rozario, as Radar reported.
"He ripped my hand open down to the tendon," 80-year-old Rozario previously told Radar. "Blood was everywhere. I was soaked in blood. The floor was soaked in blood!"
Now, as Radar reported, Kim and her sister Kyle are estranged over her decision to keep the dog.
"While Kyle has publicly supported Kim keeping the dog since the attack, it’s very different behind closed doors," the insider revealed. "Kingsley, a pit bull, has a history of biting people, and Kyle thinks it’s just irresponsible to keep the dog. It doesn’t matter that the dog has been sent off to yet another trainer. In Kyle's opinion, Kingsely is very dangerous and needs to be re-homed. Kim is choosing the dog over her family, and it’s absolutely appalling to Kyle."
The sisters feuded over the issue at the RHOBH reunion, as Radar reported, but the return of Kingsley has "placed even more strain on Kim and Kyle's strained relationship," said the source. "Kyle isn't allowing any of her kids to go over to Kim's house because she is afraid the dog will attack."
Kim Richards' rep didn't immediately respond to request for comment.
