OMG! Did Kylie Jenner just diss Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 4 show? The reality star mentioned that her career is on ‘a new level’ now, which suggests that maybe she felt too famous to walk the rapper’s runway at NYFW on Sept. 7. Surely that’s not what she meant, right?
We can’t imagine that Kylie Jenner, 19, would purposefully diss her brother-in-law’s latest fashion show, but a recent interview with the reality star suggests that she didn’t have much interest in walking Kanye West‘s, 39, runway. “I used to walk but I’ve gotten to a new level and now I get to sit and watch,” she explained to in response to why she didn’t participate this year to E!. “It’s fun. I like being on the other side.”
We’re a little shocked to hear that, considering how thrilled she was to walk in Kanye’s Season 1 show back in Feb. 2015. What changed? The youngest Kardashian beauty didn’t elaborate much as Kendall Jenner took over the interview, but we’re not the only ones who think that comment is a little weird, right? Kylie is undoubtedly a huge celebrity, wanted by nearly every photographer and designer in the world, but Kanye is family. Maybe she wanted to avoid the harsh weather conditions that forced multiple models to sit down and take a break before Kanye’s delayed show began. The models had been standing under the sun for hours and were extremely dehydrated, and one of them even reportedly fainted!
This isn’t the first time Kylie and Kanye have clashed when it comes to business affairs. Remember the Puma fiasco? Kanye has had a long-standing connection to the Adidas shoe company, and thought Kylie wouldn’t be swayed by a “measly million dollars” to work for the competitor brand. He was sadly mistaken. The LipKit creator ultimately decided to accept her Puma deal, which sent the “Famous” rapper into a frenzy. Big sis Kim Kardashian isn’t too happy with Kylie, either, but business is business.
HollywoodLifers, why do YOU think Kylie didn’t walk in Kanye’s show?
