The 17-year-old half-sister of Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, who often uploads her scantily clad modeling photos on social media, opens up to Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (via the Mail Online) about the painful criticism she has faced because of her super skinny frame, claiming that she is attempting to add pounds, but she just can’t – and RadarOnline.com has the details.
“I am constantly criticized for being too skinny,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star complains, showing off her twiggy frame sans pants in one of the racy images from the magazine.
“I’m trying to gain weight but my body won’t let it happen,” she claims. “What people don’t understand is that calling someone too skinny is the same as calling someone too fat, it’s not a nice feeling.”
Jenner, who claims that her modeling career helped her overcome her childhood shyness, also opens up about how it’s helpful to have three very different older siblings.
“I go to them for different things,” she explains. “Khloe is like my second mom, so whenever my little sister and I are fighting or we’re fighting with our parents, we call Khloe.
“Kourtney is very, realistic with things. She will tell you the cold, hard truth, even if it will make you cry, so whatever you’re dealing with, if you want to talk to her, she’ll be very realistic.
“Then Kim is supersmart and really tech-savvy, too. She’s been through a lot, so we can go to Kim with anything and she’ll have literally the best advice.”
“I’m a very loyal and very private person when it comes to my personal life. But I obviously do have Twitter and Instagram, and I will share some of the things I’m doing,” she says. “I like to promote my work when I’m at a photoshoot. I love to take pictures of myself or with the crew. But my personal life, I try to keep to myself as much as I can.
“I mean, I do get that I have a reality TV show, so it’s kind of contradicting myself, but at the same time, I’m trying to stay a little more private.”
But sometimes she still struggles with her public persona.
“It’s actually insane to me! I always say this to my little sister, I cannot believe four million people are looking at what I’m doing at all times. It kind freaks me out and gives me a little anxiety sometimes.”
