Kylie Jenner Says Mom Kris Jenner Cut Her off at 14
Kylie Jenner told a British reporter that her famous mom, Kris Jenner, cut her off financially at 14. Could that be? Is Kris a mommy dearest or a momager teaching money sense?
Kylie is the one member of the Jenner/Kardashian family to express reluctance to embrace the fame surrounding her family. Not completely comfortable growing up in the public eye she has admitted to insecurities and struggling with the glare. But it has been that fame that has made her a very well-off teenager, one that was cut off financially by her famous mom.
In an interview with UK inStyle Kylie declared herself independent which could also explain her creepy relationship with her 25-year-old boyfriend Tyga. Saying that she pays her own bills for years she tells the mag, “My mom cut me off financially three years ago.” When she was 14!
But before you go feeling sorry for her don’t forget that she recently bout her own $2.7 million house. Before her mortgage, “I pay for everything – my car, my gas, and food, as well as my clothes.” Ohhh. So in other words she was paying what many American teens pay for except there’s no working at the local McDonald’s or even bagging groceries for her.
Kylie enjoys a paycheck from the family reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians which her mom, Kris, has used to launch the family into not just fame but a fabulous fortune that includes endorsements up the gazoo. Not only did Kylie ghostwrite a book with her model sister, Kendall, but she has a collection at PacSun, serves as a brand ambassador for Nip + Fab skincare, and also hawks OPI nail polishes, along with a long list of other things. Not too shabby for 17.
So is Kylie learning how to play the Kardashian/Jenner machine. She seems to have learned from her infamous lip challenge fiasco in which she first denied using fillers and claimed she got her beautiful pout from inserting her lips into a shot glass. She came clean about using fillers after being encouraged by famous sisters Kim and Khloe. She explained that she had always been insecure about her lips and decided to have something done about it.
So what do you think about Kylie paying her own way? Does gas and food even count? Let us know what you think here at Haveuheard.
