The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star gave her feedback during a live chat on her website Thursday, according to UsMagazine.com. Apparently there are haters out there saying that Kardashian is the reason her boyfriend James Harden isn’t having a good NBA season. “Someone’s giving me too much power,” she said, among other more vulgar things during a pretty aggressive rant. This celebrity couple is still going strong and sticking together!

This celebrity news isn’t surprising, given that Kardashians seem to be prone to drama. What are some ways to show support for your partner amid criticism?

Cupid’s Advice:

It’s important to stand up for your partner when he or she has been wronged, but there are ways to do it that won’t rub people the wrong way. Cupid has some relationship advice:

1. Speak with actions instead of words: This is by no means an original idea, but it’s worth mentioning. It can be easy to lose your cool and lash out with your words when you’re mad about something that’s happening to your significant other. Consider showing your support instead of causing that kind of drama. If your partner is under fire at work, attend work functions with him or her and praise his or her accomplishments to those you meet.

2. Counter with positivity: Instead of stooping to the level of your partner’s attackers, stay positive. Turn things around on them and point out positive things about your partner. Point to concrete things that make the attackers think twice.

3. Ask your partner what he or she needs: Instead of just picking a way to stand up for your partner, let him or her know that you want to help, and ask their preferred way to do so. That way, you’re not running the risk of upsetting them and you can still show your support and willingness to help.
