Kylie Jenner is opening up about her famously plumped pout, admitting that her mother, Kris Jenner, had been adamant against the then 17-year-old enhancing her lips. In fact, Kylie confessed that she had ‘begged and begged’ for permission!
Kylie Jenner, 18, has revealed that her mother, Kris Jenner, 59, was “super against” her getting lip fillers when she was just 17 years old. Now, months later, with the truth of Kylie’s massive pout out in the open, she’s coming clean about the events leading up to her decision to enhance her lips, including how she got Kris to “finally let [her] do it”!
“When I got my lips done, I literally told no one,” Kylie explained in an interview with Elle Canada. “I didn’t tell my best friend or even the guy I liked at the time. I really thought it was no one’s business,” she added.
However, one person who Kylie had to tell– legally!– was her mother, Kris. “My mom was super-against it, but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it,” Kylie said. “After I did them, I thought it was so obvious that I didn’t have to say anything. I never denied it because I always told my publicist ‘no lip questions,’ so no one ever asked me. I never said I got them done, but I never denied it either. But people thought I was such a liar!”
Kylie elaborated on the media frenzy that surrounded her appearance at the time of her lip plumping, and why she ultimately decided to come clean to the public. “People were saying I got my chin reconstructed, that I got a nose job, an eyebrow lift, I got my boobs done, this and that,” Kylie said. “So I wanted to come out and say that this is crazy and I only got my lips done. I don’t think people realize that I just turned 18. There’s no way my mom or any doctor would let me go under the knife like that— that’s just so crazy!” she added with a laugh.
Do you think Kris was crazy for allowing Kylie to plump her lips at 17? Or was she just letting her daughter feel more confident?
