Kylie Jenner projects the perfect image of cool, calm and collected in public. But after facing relationship and family drama, the young reality star can’t help but break down in tears behind closed doors.
Will someone please pass the box of Kleenex to Kylie Jenner, 17? From her parents’ divorce to Bruce Jenner‘s transition into Caitlyn, 65, to rumors that her beau, Tyga, 25, cheated on her with a transgender model, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians beauty has been through way more than the average teen. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the pressure is starting to weigh down on Ky-Ky, leaving her to deal with her sadness secretly.
“Kylie is a real cool customer in public. She is a lot like her mom [Kris] in that it seems as though nothing phases her at all,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s very good at putting herself together and projecting an image of total confidence. She makes it seems like she’s the happiest person in the world.” To hear more about Kylie Jenner and Tyga, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
However, she most definitely is not. “The truth is that when the cameras are off and she isn’t posting playful Snapchats, Kylie is struggling with all the drama in her life,” the insider explains. “She has been through more in her young life than most 17-year-old girls and it can really get to her.”
So much so, that she is often times left sobbing without being able to stop. “Kylie battles bouts of uncontrollable crying and sadness. She was always dependent on Bruce but now everything has changed. She’s so happy and supportive for Caitlyn, but its incredibly difficult,” the source reveals.
Adding insult to injury? Her rocky romance with Tyga. Kylizzle has been forced to confront tons of criticism after Mia Isabella, 29, allegedly claimed to have had a 3-year sexual affair with the “Rack City” rapper.
“Her relationship with Tyga has been really stressful too,” says the source. “And now she’s getting an onslaught of Internet trolls hating on her because of the accusations that he’s been cheating on her with a transgender woman.”
