Kylie and Kendall have been making headlines lately, and for all the wrong reasons. After Twitter tirades and allegations of partying too hard, a source close to the Jenner family tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY why the two youngest girls have been looking for trouble.
No matter how famous and beautiful, it turns out heartbreak gets to everyone. Case and point: Kendall and Kylie Jenner. A source close to the family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that the girls’ recent public troubles have really just been a reaction to the problems going on at home.
Kylie & Kendall Jenner: Are They Crying Out For Help?
Having your parents split up is difficult enough; being a famous teenager in the public eye 24/7 doesn’t make it any easier. So of course the youngest daughters of the Kardashian-Jenner family are going to start acting out.
“Kylie’s out-of-control, diva behavior is a direct result of Kris and Bruce Jenner separating,” a friend of the Kardashian family tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “Kylie has taken their split hard and has been having a tough time ever since. She’s been acting out and it’s her desperate way of trying to bring her parents back together.”
It must be tough for both Kylie and Kendall to have to see their parents breakup, and then to take one step outside and read about it all over again online and in magazine.
“It’s not like Kris and Bruce sat down with Kylie and Kendall and discussed what was really happening with their marriage,” says the friend. “Kylie’s still doesn’t understand why the two people she loves the most aren’t together any more and why they plan on taping their dating lives on KUWTK.”
A Tough Year For Kardashian Love
And Kris and Bruce aren’t the only family members going through marital strife. Long before that split went public, Kendall and Kylie’s half-sister Khloe Kardashian was — and still is — having serious issues with her husband Lamar Odom. Khloe and Lamar have been apart since the summer as he battles an alleged drug addiction.
So besides Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s fairytale romance, it has been a very bad few months for the Kardashians. And it’s obviously taken a toll.
“They’re overwhelmed with all of the drama in her family life,” the insider explains. “They feel sad for Khloe, they feel sad for Lamar, they feel sad for their parents. No wonder they’re acting out, can you blame them?”
What do YOU think HollywoodLifers? Do both Kylie and Kendall need extra support right now? Should their parents make more of an effort to make sure they are doing okay after the split?
