Kim Kardashian is focused on family amid a troubling time in her six-year marriage to Kanye West.
On Friday the 39-year-old TV personality shared a collection of snaps from the bash the clan threw for Kris Jenner’s mom Mary Jo last week to celebrate her 86th birthday.
The family gathered at their $125 million Malibu summer retreat where May Jo was treated to a rose-adorned cake, a live piano player and a stunning backdrop of the pacific coastline.

In her Instagram post, Kim explained the family invited some of Mary Jo’s friends from San Diego where she lives. They also made sure they got tested for COVID-19 before coming to the party.
‘Happy 86th birthday to my grandma Mary Jo. Last week we celebrated my sweet grandma and she hasn’t left her house since January. First she was sick and then Covid lockdown.’ she wrote.
‘So we got her best friends tested and driven up from San Diego to celebrate MJ. We even had her favorite piano player and singer from San Diego come to perform. It was such a magical day and grandma you deserve the best!’
In one sunny snap, MJ sits on a patio set with Kris, 64, on one side and Kim on the other with some of her kids.

Kim looked camera-ready as always, wearing a black one-shoulder gown and her hair braided down her back.
On her lap sat daughter Chicago, two and son Psalm, one while peeking over her shoulder in a very cheeky fashion was eldest son Saint, four.
Eldest daughter North, seven, made an appearance in a second snap, as she came into shot holding a chicken.
Meanwhile, Kim has not reacted to Kanye’s latest tweets which broke six days of silence after his worrying outbursts last week.
Kanye took to Twitter on Friday to insist that his tears over abortion at his presidential rally were not a meltdown, and voiced ‘concern for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this.’

The 43-year-old rapper wrote: ‘I cried at the thought of aborting my first born and everyone was so concerned about me. I’m concerned for the world that feels you shouldn’t cry about this subject.’
In a second tweet, Kanye added: There is a tactic of 4 D’s: Distract, Discredit, Dismiss To Destroy.
‘I am quite alright Take a second and think about what is being projected here.’
It came as Kim hit back at claims she’s ‘torn’ over ending her marriage to Kanye after having crisis talks with the rapper in Wyoming earlier this week.
It’s been reported that the KKW Beauty mogul remains undecided about getting a divorce after ‘feeling like she has tried everything’ to save their six-year marriage.
It was also claimed this week that the couple have been living separately for a year.

However, a representative for the mother-of-four has shut down the claims on the star’s behalf, telling Dailymail.com the reports are ‘absolutely not true’.
In the report, shared by People, a source is quoted as saying: ‘She isn’t getting back what she needs from Kanye. She was to the point that she flew to Cody to basically tell him their marriage is over and to say goodbye.’
People reports that musician and fashion designer Kanye is eager to work on their marriage, recently issuing a public apology to her on Twitter after stating during a presidential rally that she contemplated aborting their first daughter North, seven.
Embattled rapper Kanye West broke his silence on Twitter with two messages on Thursday
In one tweet, he appeared lay out the ‘four D’s’ and urged his followers to ‘take a second and think about what is being projected here
Kanye made his first presidential campaign appearance earlier this month in Charleston, South Carolina where he went on a rant and appeared emotional as he divulged highly personal information about his relationship with Kim

However, a source claimed the apology is as far as his reparative efforts have gone, explaining: ‘He doesn’t seem to get what she is saying. He hasn’t changed anything that she told him needs to change.’
‘Kim is very torn,’ added the source. ‘The last thing she wants is to be divorced with four kids. She knows that she will be fine financially, but her concerns are the kids and the partnership. She is moving towards a divorce, but who knows if she will actually sign papers.’
Kanye, who launched a controversial presidential campaign this month, is said to have been based at his $14 million Wyoming ranch this past year, while Kim would visit only once a month with their four children.
Clearly the distance between the couple has been a source of contention, as during Kanye’s Twitter meltdown last week, he stated: ‘My family must live next to me,’ before adding: ‘It’s not up to E or NBC anymore.’
The rapper appeared to be hinting that he wanted Kim and the kids to be based in Wyoming and not in LA, where she films her E! reality series Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
