Oh, Kylie. It must have been tough being the youngest in a family with so many gorgeous older sisters. Kim spilled in an interview that Kylie’s wanted a plumper pout like hers since she was just a little girl.
It’s been almost a year since Kylie Jenner, 17, began over-exaggerating her lips, which eventually led to her plumping them with the help of fillers, but, it turns out, she’s actually wanted a plumper pout since she was just 10 years old, Kim Kardashian reveals in a new interview. Find out why the 35-year-old is totally on-board with her sister’s decision to get injections!
Kylie Jenner Envied Kim Kardashian’s Lips Since She Was 10 Years Old
“I know people are saying she’s only 17 years old, but it’s been an insecurity of hers for years,” Kim revealed to Access Hollywood. “At 10 and 11 years old she would always say to me, ‘Kimmy how come my lips aren’t as big as your guys’?!’ It’s something she was always insecure about.”
Of course, there’s still plenty of critics who think 17 is way too young for this kind of procedure, but HollywoodLife.com spoke with an expert who confirmed that that’s not the case. “There is no long term damage,” Dr. Bruce Katz, of NYC’s Juva Skin Center, tells us. “It will not affect the ‘cupid’s bow,’ and it only lasts 9 months to a year.”
As for Kim, she just wants to see her little sis happy, so she’s 100% okay with it. “If it’s going to make her feel better about herself, I’m all for it,” she continued. “I think she looks beautiful. It’s hard when you’re that age and talking about an insecurity, so I’m proud that she talked about it and that it’s out, and now everyone can stop talking about it.”
While speculation about Kylie’s lips has been going on for months, she’s finally opening up about it in this Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
“I have temporary lip fillers. It’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do,” she says in a voiceover. “I’m just not ready to talk [about it yet]. Everyone always picks us apart. I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth. But I didn’t lie!”
In her Access Hollywood interview, Kim reiterated that Kylie hasn’t spent months lying, and confirmed that, at first, she was simply using a lot of lip liner. “People think ‘Oh my God, she lied for so long, now she’s finally come clean!’ But that’s not really the case. It took her a while to do it,” she explained.
HollywoodLifers, tell us — do you think it’s okay that Kylie got her lips plumped since it’s something she wanted for so long?
