No matter how hard Jaden Smith begs, it doesn’t look like Kylie Jenner is ready to let bygones be bygones. The reality star is refusing to make peace with Amandla Stenberg, even at Jaden’s request, HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Much to Jaden Smith’s, 17, dismay, this feud between Kylie Jenner, 17, and Amandla Stenberg, 16, doesn’t look like it will be ending any time soon. Even though Jaden is trying his best to try and get Kylie and Amandla to make up, the 17-year-old reality star is still mad and is refusing to make nice with the movie star after her diss.
Like a good friend, Jaden isn’t taking any sides in the fight between Kylie and Amandla. “Jaden has been talking to Kylie again and if there is a silver lining to this whole mess it’s that their relationship is a little better than it had been,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Jaden thinks both Kylie and Amandla are great people and would like for them to be friends. He knows Kylie didn’t like what Amandla did and he knows Amandla has been really hurt by the backlash against her.” The Hunger Games actress faced quite a bit of negativity after she dissed Kylie on Instagram for wearing cornrows, even getting reprimanded by Andy Cohen, 47, and Justin Bieber, 21.
“Jaden wants to get the three of them together to talk it out and make peace,” the source continues. “Unfortunately Kylie hasn’t cooled off yet and isn’t down with a meeting. She doesn’t want to see or talk to Amandla. When Jaden suggested a meeting she shut the idea down right away.” Yeah, Kylie is definitely going to need some time to get over Amandla’s comment towards her.
Jaden Caught In The Middle While His Friends Duke It Out
Hopefully Jaden’s efforts to get these two to reconcile won’t go to waste! When the initial incident happened, the actor tried his best to stay neutral between his two friends. “Jaden is getting caught in the crossfire between Kylie and Amandla,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “He’s a really silly guy and he thought Kylie and Amandla’s little tiff was hilarious at first. But people are making such a huge deal out of it now and Amandla and Kylie don’t think it’s funny at all.” Now, Jaden feels the need to step in and calm things down between the two. Let’s hope Kylie and Amandla can be cordial with each other soon. No one needs extra drama in their life.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kylie and Amandla should bury the hatchet and just be friends?
