Kylie Jenner is about to turn 18 in a few weeks and she’s making some pretty adult moves, like living on her own for the very first time! But an insider tells HollywoodLife.com that the transition to adulthood has been really difficult on the reality star!
Kylie Jenner, 17, has had a tough year! The reality star dealt with her parent’s divorce, her father, Caitlyn Jenner, transitioning to a woman, criticism of her lips and an alleged sex scandal with her boyfriend, Tyga. While most kids her age are getting ready to go off to college and busy picking out their bedspreads, she’s dealing with national attention that’s usually negative! HollywoodLife.com has spoken to a source close to Kylie who tells us that she’s really missing spending more time with Cait and she’s feeling “lonely.”
“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,” our source tells us. “From her parents divorce, to Bruce’s transition to Caitlyn, to all the drama with Tyga, Kylie has been through more in her young life than most 17-year-old-girls and it can really get to her. Kylie battles bouts of uncontrollable crying and sadness. She was always dependant on Bruce but now everything has changed. She’s so happy and supportive for Caitlyn but its incredibly difficult.” We can totally understand that things have been hard for Kylie. She just moved into her new mansion and luckily it’s just down the street from her family. But meanwhile, her mom, Kris Jenner, has been spending quite a bit of time with Kendall Jenner and doesn’t really seem to be the rock that she needs.
Our insider also says: “Her relationship with Tyga has been really stressful too 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. She often feels very alone as everyone in her family is so busy with their own lives. The one person who she really leans on during these tough times is Khloe [Kardashian] who is like a surrogate mother.” We’re so glad she has Khloe and she definitely knows a thing or two about going through tough times!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kylie needs a roommate other than Tyga to keep her company during this difficult time?
