The Kardashian-Jenner family has been in the spotlight for years, and with fame came its fair share of invasive and uncomfortable moments, especially when dealing with overzealous paparazzi. In a candid conversation during “The Kardashians” season three finale on July 27, Kylie and Kendall Jenner shared their experiences of being violated by photographers.
Violation of Privacy and Invasive Paparazzi
Kylie Jenner revealed a distressing incident when she was just 19 years old. An aggressive paparazzo took a photo up her skirt while she was getting into a car, leaving her feeling violated and humiliated. “I’m literally, like, so violated. I’m crying in the car. I’m stressed out the whole night, the whole next day [thinking] this photo of my vagina’s going to come out,” she recounted during the finale.
This invasive photo was later published in the Daily Mail, accompanied by a demeaning caption, “Kylie with little dignity.” Kylie expressed her disbelief, saying, “Like you didn’t just fully violate me.” Kendall, her sister, also shared the distressing experiences they endured at a younger age when they were 16. The paparazzi would follow them, trying to provoke a reaction and hurling hurtful comments their way.
Insensitive and Offensive Remarks
Kendall Jenner recalled one instance where a photographer asked her, “‘Are you a whore just like your sister?’” Both sisters revealed that they were subjected to questions like “‘Hey, little sluts, are you going to have a sex tape like your sister?’” and “‘When are you guys going to get naked?’” These comments referred to Kim Kardashian’s infamous sex tape with Ray J.
At the time, Kendall was a virgin and found the remarks completely opposite to her true character. Despite the hurtful experiences, both sisters acknowledged that they grew into better individuals due to the support of their family.
The Impact of Family Support
Kendall and Kylie attributed their ability to cope with such challenging situations to their close-knit family. They recognized the importance of having a strong support system, especially when dealing with the pressures and invasions of privacy that come with being part of a high-profile family like the Kardashians. Despite everything, they emerged as resilient and decent individuals.
Kylie Jenner’s Regretful Cosmetic Procedure
In addition to dealing with the paparazzi’s invasive actions, Kylie Jenner has been open about her past cosmetic procedures. In a conversation with her best friend Stassie Karanikolaou during a July 27 episode of the Hulu series, Kylie admitted to undergoing breast enhancement surgery at the age of 19 in 2017.
Reflecting on her decision, Kylie expressed regret, stating, “I had beautiful breasts, like natural tits… Just gorgeous, perfect size, perfect everything. And I just wish, obviously, I never got them done to begin with. I would recommend anyone who is thinking about it to wait until after children.”
Aire’s Name Meaning and the Animal Connection
Switching gears to happier news, Kylie Jenner revealed the meaning behind the name of her son, Aire. In a Thursday episode of the Hulu show, Kylie shared that Aire’s name means “Lion of God” in Hebrew, highlighting her desire to choose a name with significant meaning. She initially named her son Wolf but had a change of heart, realizing it wasn’t the right name for him.
Kylie’s postpartum emotions led her to rename her baby boy, and she decided on the name Aire, appreciating its powerful significance. The makeup mogul’s bond with her children played a crucial role in this decision, making her realize that she wanted a name that truly captured the essence of her son.
Growing up as part of the Kardashian-Jenner family brought both fame and challenging moments for Kylie and Kendall Jenner. Dealing with intrusive paparazzi and hurtful remarks has been an ongoing struggle, but they credit their strong family support for helping them overcome these difficult experiences. Additionally, Kylie’s openness about her past cosmetic procedure and her ultimate decision to choose a meaningful name for her son Aire highlight the importance of self-love and thoughtful decision-making. Through it all, the Jenner sisters continue to thrive and emerge as strong and resilient individuals.
