Kylie Jenner is the youngest child of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Kylie and her sister Kendall have grown up in front of the world’s scrutiny due to their participation in the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality show. Kylie has definitely made a name for herself by being a fashion enthusiast and an iconic celebrity. However, her rise to fame has come with a lot of controversies from different areas of her life. Here are some of the biggest Kylie Jenner controversies thus far.
Kylie Jenner is originally a thin-lipped girl. At 17 years, a few months before turning 18, Kylie posted photos on Instagram where she had full lips. The photos immediately grabbed everyone’s attention who wanted to know what exactly was going on with the young lady. Rumors went around of people claiming that she had definitely got lip fillers in order to achieve the new look. However, Kylie came out and strongly refuted those claims.
Kylie stated that her lips seemed fuller than usual because she lined them above the original lip line. This means that she used a lip liner to create a new line above and below her lips then she filled the space with lipstick. Her claims did not last long because she then came out saying that she used a temporary method to achieve full lips. Her claims led to the creation of the Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge where people used shot glasses to get full lips. The idea behind the concept was that you needed to fit your lips into the mouth of the shot glass then suck air hard in order to stretch your lips. People who tried the challenge had devastating results that landed some of them in the emergency room due to burst lips.
Kylie Jenner finally admitted to getting lip fillers in an episode on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. She had a conversation on the show with her sisters where she admitted that she had high insecurities about her lips hence she opted to get fillers.
In 2016, Kylie posted a photo of herself in a raunchy top revealing some major cleavage. The cleavage came as a shock to the rest of the world that is used to her having a small bust. The internet went crazy while claiming that Kylie Jenner had got a boob job in order to increase the size of her breasts. In order to drive the point home, people compared photos of her bust in the recent past with the current ones showing her cleavage. Some people came to her defense claiming that the cleavage may be an effect of a good bra. However, the claims of a good bra were pushed under the rug when Kylie posed for photos in a bikini and her new bust size was out for everyone to see.
Kim Kardashian, Kylie’s sister, is known for being endowed with a huge butt and curvaceous body. The same goes for Khloe. The other three sisters seem to have slim figures. As such, it was surprising to see photos of Kylie in a bikini with an hourglass figure. Her hips and butt seemed larger than usual and this prompted the claims of hip and butt enhancement. As usual, the before and after photos swarmed the internet. Some people defended Kylie’s body saying it could be an effect of puberty but most people disagreed with this claim. Kylie Jenner has never admitted to any of the plastic surgery rumors.
Relationship with Tyga
In September 2014, Kylie Jenner was spotted hanging out with Tyga, a famous rapper. At the time, Tyga had just split up with his girlfriend and son’s mother, Blac Chyna. Rumors that Tyga and Kylie were dating heated up the internet as the two were seen in a couple of photos together. To advance the rumors, Tyga and his son King attended Easter mass with the Kardashians in 2015. The problem with the relationship was that Kylie was only 17 years old in 2014 and Tyga was 25. The huge age difference and the fact that Kylie was still a minor caused a major stir over the internet. People stated that the relationship between the two was highly inappropriate.
By the time Kylie turned 18 years, the two officially confirmed that they were dating. The relationship became weirder when Rob Kardashian, Kylie’s brother, started dating Blac Chyna. Well, that makes one confused family tree.
Kylie Jenner is the queen of selfies and hot photo shoots. Her photos often do more harm than good, but as they say, any publicity is good publicity. Kylie’s inappropriate photos started at the mere age of 16 when she took raunchy photos in a bikini. Many people were against the photos that seemed too sexy for such a young girl. Since then, Kylie Jenner has continued to take numerous lingerie photos while paying no attention to the online haters.
Another inappropriate photo entailed Kylie on a bed with Jaden Smith, Will Smith’s son. The two posed for a photo in bed with Jaden Shirtless and Kylie holding him from behind. Kylie Jenner and Jaden have been best friends for a long time. Jaden was 15 years at the time the photo was taken. The internet blasted the two for the photo. The surprising fact is that Will Smith joined the bashing team by saying the two teenagers had exploited the media and it was undesirable even to him as a parent. Well, at least we know Will is a responsible parent who does not condone bad behavior.
Kylie Jenner found herself in the middle of racist claims when she posed for photos that seemed to depict her in dark skin color. People were quick to claim that the photos were similar to the blackface trend that was used derogatively against black people. However, Kylie saved face when she stated that the photos were taken under neon lights and black light in order to achieve the effect. Well, maybe next time a black and white filter will save us all the drama.
It is evident that privileged people seem not to be aware of their actions and surroundings. At the age of 18, Kylie posed for photos for the Interview Magazine. In the photos, Kylie is wearing an S&M ensemble and she is sitting on a gold wheelchair. The photo was an art piece that was meant to take a stand against media scrutiny. The photos show Kylie in several positions that are meant to depict her power and control over her public image. The photos show that Kylie is in charge of her image but the same image makes her an object of scrutiny from the media. The outrage against these photos was intense. People stated that the use of the wheelchair was insensitive towards people who actually live their lives in wheelchairs. In fact, disabled people who use wheelchairs took to social media to call out the offensive nature of the photos. Kylie Jenner is not the first celebrity to use a wheelchair in her art since Lady Gaga has ever held a performance while sitting in a wheelchair.
Social media has allowed people to share literally everything about their lives. Kylie Jenner is a fan of sharing everything about herself on Instagram and SnapChat. In one SnapChat video, Kylie is seen putting her hands down Kendall’s pants. The two sisters were having a photo shoot when Kylie decided to do that and she went ahead and posted it online. The internet was outrage as usual claiming that the post was inappropriate. However, some poked fun at the post saying they are sisters and messing around with each other is normal.
Being the queen of raunchy photos means that Kylie has no limits. In one instance, Kylie Jenner posted a couple of videos of SnapChat. She then gave the fans a glimpse of her nude body by posing for a photo in a white see-through top that she wore without a bra. The top left nothing to imagination as it clearly revealed her nipples. On the same matter about her nipples. Kylie once hinted that she might have nipple piercings when she stated that she has new piercings in secret places.
At 16 years, Kylie Jenner was caught giving her friend Miles Richie a tattoo on his hand. Miles is Nicole Richie’s small brother. To make matters worse, the tattoo contained initials of Kylie’s name. We wonder if he still has it. Notably, it is illegal to give someone a tattoo when you are under the legal age of 18 years. Clearly these two had no clue about that, or they did and they ignored the facts.
Kylie Jenner lives her life in the public eye. As such, everything she does and says will always be under immense scrutiny. In some cases, she is judged for things that are outside her control such as the fact that she was born in a famous family. The famous family earned her a spot in the lime light but she keeps the fire burning for herself. We can only wait and see the controversies that she will find herself in over the years as she continues to grow.
