They're nothing new but Kylie Jenner's supersized lips continue to court controversy. Only last week she was slammed for 'ruining' the lip suction cup brand Fullips following wrong association with the #KylieJennerChallenge and now Khloe Kardashian has been speaking out about her little sister's decision to get fillers at such a young age.
In her recent interview with Complex Magazine, Khloe stood up for her teenage sibling: "Kylie might be 17, but from what Kylie has been through and the life she lives, she's not a normal 17-year-old..." No, she's a mansion-owning millionaire with her own company. "It's a rare circumstance, so let's treat this as a special case," she added. Ok.
"Sometimes things bother her. She used to always take pictures covering her mouth. I didn't even know when she first did her lips. It wasn't noticeable, then it started getting bigger and bigger. I guess that was something she just wanted."
After months of denial, instead insisting she was really, really good at kontouring her lips, Kylie admitted on an episode of KUWTK to pout plumping injections.
Well, we can understand how being born into the genetically striking Jenner-Kardash klan with cameras constantly following you and selfies second nature could make you insecure, so who are we to judge. We just hope she doesn't get carried away with surgery she might regret when she's older, because we all know self-confidence comes with age and experience—not Instagram followers.
