As aging and pregnant Kim becomes more desperate-- both to hold on to the spotlight and to take credit for Kylie's success -- she has allegedly begun to demand that Kylie pay her for stealing her style! "Kim is fed up with how much money Kylie is making by mimicking her," an insider told Life & Style. "She says she's entitled to at least 30 percent of those earnings."

Kim reportedly feels that Kylie's fame is costing her money, and that the 18-year-old has, "stolen her entire look, from head to toe, and is booking jobs that otherwise would've gone to Kim."

Kim has allegedly already escalated the situation by taking it to her legal team. "She's had her attorney draft papers. Kylie is essentially using her likeness without her permission -- so Kim has no problem suing her," an insider said.

At first, Kim tried to broach the subject in a relatively delicate way. "Kim tried to explain that giving her a percentage was only right since Kylie's fame and fortune is because of her," the source told Life & Style, but "Kylie thought that was the stupidest thing she ever heard. She shot back, 'That's never going to happen. You're just a greedy b---- who's never satisfied no matter what."

But the nastiness did not stop there. Kylie continued, 'Everyone knows you're famous because of a sex tape -- at least I didn't have to do that."

That, the insider says, is when Kim decided to wage her legal war. "Kim was furious and on the verge of tears. She stormed off yelling at Kris, "I'll talk to my attorney and you can deal with your ungrateful, know-it-all-b---- daughter!'"

Kim was once happy for Kylie's success, but now, she is reportedly making it very clear that while the Jenner girl may share a parent with her older sister, she needs to stay in her own, naturally thin-lipped lane! "I mean, at 10 years old she would say to me, 'How come my lips aren't big like you guys,'" Kim once revealed.
