KOURTNEY Kardashian has been slammed as “wasteful” after overusing water at her $8M mansion.
An official report cited that she went DOUBLE her district’s monthly water budget “for four months” despite Los Angeles’ drought.

California is facing its worst drought in nearly 1,200 years.
Nearly six million people in Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Ventura counties have been asked to adhere to water limitations.
SoCal was called on to immediately reduce water use recently by restricting residents to watering outdoor plants once a week – one of its many recent conservation strategies.
Though that’s apparently all a wash for Kourtney, 43.
The famous figure was one of the few celebrities singled out in a new report from CBS.
They wrote that in Kourtney’s “$8 million Calabasas home, water records from the Las Virgenes Water District show the home using 245% of its allotted water budget in May.
“That was the fourth month it went over budget since severe drought restrictions were put in place in December.”
One Redditor wrote sharing the news story, “She should be ashamed and she should be heavily fined.
“Whoever buys her ‘I’m an ecological gal’ shtick needs to wake tf up.”
Another wrote, “Exactly! It’s f**king disgusting. These people should be shamed!”
A third wrote, “Then hop on a private jet to Italy lmao. Out of touch.”
A fourth wrote, “Citizens there are having to ration their water use to drink, shower and eat.
“This family are resource abusers and it’s of little to no consequence to them.
Another user added, “When a seemingly inevitable wildfire threatens the region (again) they can just pay for private firefighters to protect their homes, while others will lose theirs.
But at least they drink from reusable water bottles.”
The mansion has a lush, uncharacteristically green backyard and pool – one of the months she went over the limit she was even out of town for her Portofino, Italy wedding to Travis Barker.
Kourtney in April took to her Instagram Stories to share a fact sheet about carbon emissions on our planet.
The reality star posted a “CO2 tracker” that explained how harmful pollution has become on earth.
The post concluded with a call to action, reading: “Time to get our s**t together.”
One follower re-shared the post to Reddit where several shared their opinion on the matter even before her water report arrived.
One complained: “It’s so frustrating to see them post stuff like this while living really wasteful lives even though they have all the means to try and be as sustainable as possible.”
Another wrote, “Celebrities p**s me off when they try to get into eco stuff. Infographics mean nothing if you’re not going to put in the work.”
“Rich people always try to preach but they are the ones causing the damage.”
JET THEM EAT CAKE
The TV personality flew to and from Mexico with now-husband Travis – as well as to Las Vegas for their “just for fun wedding” – and her entire family uses private jets so casually.
Kourtney’s sister Kylie Jenner, 24, purchased her pink private plane in early 2020 for a whopping $72.8million, and the family has all enjoyed their individual time on the aircraft.
Last month Kylier took her $72m private jet for a flight that was 15 minutes long.
According to flight-tracking websites, Kylie flew from Camarillo to Van Nuys.
That’s a distance of just 45 miles. And a flight time of under 15 minutes – It’s also a total of 127 gallons of jet fuel used, and a full ton of CO2 emissions.
The outrage came just a few weeks after Kim was slammed for a similar flight pattern.
On April 30, the SKIMS founder was slammed for taking her multi-million dollar private jet on a 17-minute flight, covering a mere 35 miles, while producing a reported 2 tons of CO2 emissions.
“Camarillo to Van Nuys is a 40-60 min. drive,” one Redditor posted. “If she really needed to save that time then a helicopter would have more than sufficed.”
While another agreed: “Environmental destruction > 40 minute drive I guess?”
One follower asked how the entire family is not ostracized for their behaviors: “The environmental destruction of the Kardashian family is unfathomable.”
The Kardashians star is now the stepmother to Travis’ teenage kids: Alabama and Landon.
