KylieJenner talks her parents allegedly cutting her off financially at the age of 15, never undergoing plastic surgery – aside from lip fillers – and more, in the new Paper Magazine interview.
The makeup owner and social media influencer is on the cover of this month’s Paper issue, with that, she also completed an interview where she discussed some of the biggest headlines revolving around her. The 21-year-old’s first comment was on plastic surgery rumors.
“People think I fully went under the knife and completely reconstructed my face, which is completely false,” she explains in the phone interview. “I’m terrified! I would never. They don’t understand what good hair and makeup and, like, fillers, can really do,” said Jenner. “I mean, no,” she says with a laugh. “It’s fillers. I’m not denying that.” She then discusses being a young mother and how the world responded to her formerly secret baby Stormi. “It’s genuinely what I wanted… to be a young mom,” she says. “I thought, this I what I want to do, and if people accept it or don’t accept it then I’m okay with every outcome.”
Last year in July, Jenner appeared on the cover of Forbes magazine as potentially the youngest “self-made” billionaire. Following the debut of the magazine, many spoke out in concern that the term “self-made” is not easily rewarded, and shouldn’t be given to Jenner who comes from a well-established, wealthy family. But, Jenner claims her parents cut her off financially at the age of 15.
“I just knew for myself as a customer, like, why am I buying a lip liner and a different lipstick? I wanted it the same color, I wanted it to be easy,” she recalls. “And I really spent every last dime that I had starting it, not even knowing if it would be successful.” She continued, “I had such a huge platform, I had so many followers already and I had so many people watching me.”
“My parents told me I needed to make my own money, it’s time to learn how to save and spend your own money, stuff like that,” she explains, taking her time to think through the statement. “What I’m trying to say is I did have a platform, but none of my money is inherited.”
