In a rush to grow up, are we? Seventeen-year-old Kylie Jenner rounded up when talking about her age in a new interview. Sorry girl, but you’ve still got two more months until you’re legal!
Kylie Jenner, 17, claimed that she’s 18 years old while chatting with MailOnline during their yacht party at the Cannes Lions festival in France on June 24. But the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty won’t actually be of age until her August 10 birthday. While Kylie must surely feel grown up (she is dating 25-year old rapper, Tyga), she jumped the gun just a bit — and fans were quick to call her out on it. Check out their heated Instagram comments here!
“I think my mom just really taught us at a young age just how to always support ourselves,” Kylie boasted while talking to press at the international event. “I think it was a great thing to learn. Now I’m eighteen and I’m buying my own home.” That last sentence? Yeah, that’s when a resounding “Say What?!” occurred. Even though she might just be super anxious to finally turn the big 1-8, Kylie’s verbal mistake cost her some severe social media lashings.
“Bitch got all lessons from mom other than when she becomes a year older #bitchwhere @therealtt3 😂😂😂,” wrote @limited_edition_cay. And the insults didn’t stop there. “That’s that child mindset. Like when our kids lie and say they older than they are smh,” @christie8255 said, while @eauxdezz claimed, “this girl loves to lie.” Ouch!
While Miss Jenner received a fair share of hate, there happened to be a few users who stood up for the young starlet. “What a bunch of haters ! U all wish u had the things she does , or look like her ! Get a life,” @lesliee.j typed away in defense.
And @denareowilliams offered the most logical explanation for Kylie’s speaking snafu: “I think she was trying to Say almost 18 ☕👀.” Check it out below and make your own judgments about Kylizzle’s quote:
