The Kardashian-Jenner clan exemplified the spirit of the holiday season when they celebrated Thanksgiving as a blended family. Kylie Jenner gave followers a look at the celebrations by uploading a photo that notably included Caitlyn Jenner, Scott Disick and her on-off boyfriend Tyga. "Thankful for my blended family," the 18-year-old captioned the photo.
However fans of the first family of reality TV were puzzled by the appearance of an unknown man standing next to Scott on the left. The mystery has now been solved: he is J Sakiya Sandifer, a business development strategist and life skills guru, who is Kanye West's best friend.
Sakiya wrote 2009 book Thank you & you're welcome with the rapper about their personal philosophy. He has also co-written five tracks on Kanye's album Yeezus, for which the pair were nominated for a Grammy. Like Kanye, he is from Chicago and was a guest of honour at his wedding to Kim Kardashian so he knows the clan very well.
At the Thanksgiving get together, Kylie was seen holding hands with rapper Tyga, confirming that their romance is back on after a brief split. On the other side of Scott is his estranged partner Kourtney Kardashian and their three children.
The previous day Scott and Kourtney sparked rumours of a reunion when they met up for lunch without the children. The 36-year-old reality TV princess was smiling broadly suggesting that whatever their status, as far as she is concerned it is all going in the right direction.

The Jenner girls were joined by both their parents for Thanksgiving – which was hosted by big sister Khloé Kardashian. Both Caitlyn Jenner and Kris Jenner appear in the photo, smiling side-by-side, with Kris' boyfriend Corey Gamble stood just behind her.
Kylie recently revealed that her father Bruce's gender transition to become Caitlyn has brought them closer together. The teenager told Ellen that she can now talk make-up with Caitlyn and "there's not a huge secret in the family".
Kim can be seen kissing her two-year-old daughter North, with her husband Kanye beaming in the background. According to People, the couple – who are expecting their second baby together – visited Khloé's estranged husband Lamar Odom in hospital just a few hours before attending the dinner.
Khloé pulled out all the stops for the Thanksgiving celebrations. Despite still recovering from an infection she caught while caring for Lamar, the 31-year-old managed to cook up a feast for her family.
It's been a difficult year for Khloé. In October Lamar was admitted to hospital after being found unconscious after an overdose. She has been a constant presence by his bedside – but while keeping her hospital vigil, the TV star caught the infection which kept her out of action for weeks.
