Kylie Jenner is really pulling at our heartstrings here. The reality star has opened up about her struggles with bullying in a new ‘Interview’ magazine spread, revealing for the first time who her bullies were and the horrible things they used to say. Get the heartbreaking details here.
While it’s no secret that Kylie Jenner, 18, has admitted to being bullied in the past, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has yet to really open about her personal story — that is, until now. In a candid new interview with INTERVIEW magazine, the reality star reveals for the first time the details about her struggles with being bullied, including the nasty comments her bullies used to tell her both in public and online. Read more about her personal story below.
Speaking candidly to INTERVIEW magazine, Kylie didn’t hold anything back while discussing her difficult struggle with being bullied — a serious problem that she admits she has had to deal with ever since she was nine-years-old. “Since the show started, there’s been so much bullying towards me,” Kylie told the magazine. “Like, every single day I see something negative about me. And it’s just completely torn me apart. I feel like I’ve lost so many amazing traits because I’ve listened to stupid people, ignorant people who are bullies.
Sadly, bullying was something that Kylie was forced to deal with both in-person and online as more and more of her so-called “friends growing up” continued to turn on her. “We were all young, and I always felt like people weren’t friends with me for the right reasons, and they would be like, “You know everyone is just friends with you because you’re famous,” or just weird stuff,” Kylie added. “I had a lot of friend issues throughout the years. That took a toll, and now I have two really great best friends that are the only people I hang out with. I keep a close circle. But it doesn’t affect me anymore; I’m totally fine with it. It’s just when you’re young, like 9, 10. It’s just confusing and you don’t know why people are saying mean things about you.”
Sadly, Kylie even revealed that like a lot of teenagers out there, she too struggles every day to not break down in a nervous wreck. “I wake up every morning with the worst anxiety. I don’t know why,” she told the magazine. “I wake up every morning at, like, seven or eight because I think that there’s a bas story about me, and I have to check. My worst fear is waking up and finding something bad about me on the Internet.”
