Selena Gomez & Kylie Jenner Make Up: How Kris Jenner Made Them Become Friends Again
“The person who initiated [Selena and Kylie] to talk again was Kris,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Kris brought up to Selena at the Met Ball that Kylie missed her and she would love to see them talk again, its massive baby steps but they have been testing it out to become friends again and have talked and obviously have hung out.”
It looks like Kris’ plan has been successful! “It’s a work in progress between them,” the insider explains. “They won’t be hanging out together alone yet but in a group it seems to have worked out positively.”
Indeed it has! On May 16, Kylie posted a sweet pic on Instagram, showing her and Selena kicking it with a bevy of their BFFs. The teen reality star included the touching caption: “Such a fun experience in ‘Napa’ w these lovely people ;).”
Noticeably absent from the pic is Kendall, who Selena is still not on good terms with after she allegedly slept with her former beau, the Biebs. Regardless of Kendall’s feud with Miss Gomez, Kylie has taken the high road by moving forward in her friendship with Selena, who she obviously thinks is “lovely.” Love it!
Selena Gomez: Giving Kylie Jenner Advice On Body Shamers
One of the main reasons Kris wanted Kylie and Selena to get their friendship back on track? She thinks the 22-year-old will be able to give her baby some sound advice when it comes to recent attacks from body shamers — which Selena has also had experience with!
“Selena knows what it’s like to grow up fast in the business and Kris knows Kylie will listen to her. When they spoke at the MET Ball, Kris asked Selena if she would reach out to Kylie,” another source adds. “Selena has a heart of gold and did reach out to her. She’s been like a mentor in the body image department. She wants Kylie not to let the body shamers get the best of her and to stay confident no matter what.” Yay for girl power!
