All of Kylie Jenner’s Most Controversial Moments that You Forgot About
Growing up in the public eye, we’re not surprised that Kylie Jenner has gotten herself into some trouble over the years. Some things were totally her own doing and others were simply caused by people wanting to start drama. Either way, the 17-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is no stranger to controversies.
1. When she (maybe) started getting lip injections (March 2013)
At this point, Kylie Jenner’s lips are pretty much her signature. We can’t even picture her without ’em, ya know? Back back in early 2013, people were shocked to see a then-16-year-old Ky with suddenly HUGE lips. And, as expected, plastic surgery was on everyone’s minds. Would Kris Jenner really let her teenage daughter get lip injections? Is it possible for those things to just be overdrawn? These are still questions that people ask themselves today, and even though Kylie adamantly denies getting any injections, we may never actually know what goes down.
2. When she posed for revealing Instagram pictures (November 2013)
Every Kardashian sibling is a fan of oversharing, but people thought things went a little too far when they noticed a young Kylie Jenner was posting a series of revealing pics on Instagram. The photos in question usually featured KyJen in bikinis, short skirts, or cleavage-bearing tops, which critics thought were WAY too inapprops for a 16 year old.
3. When she tweeted about being ‘bipolar’ (November 2013)
Girls get sick of their hair — that’s no surprise. But when Kylie Jenner called herself ‘bipolar’ for missing her black locks, people understandably FREAKED out. They claimed she was being insensitive and playing down the severity of mental illnesses. Not cool, Ky.
4. When she tattooed Nicole Richie’s little brother (May 2014)
Fun fact. It’s illegal to give someone a tattoo if you’re under 18. Oh…you knew that already? Well, apparently Kylie didn’t, ’cause she was caught giving her pal Miles Richie a tattoo of her initials (WTF?!) on his hand when she just 16.
5. When she was caught in bed with Jaden Smith (May 2014)
YIKES! Despite the fact that they were “just friends” Kylie and Jaden sparked intense controversy when the posted a pic of themselves in bed together. Not only was Kylie snuggled up behind Will Smith’s 15-year-old son, but he was also shirtless, causing people to say the whole thing was highly inappropriate.
6. When she started dating Tyga (September 2014)
No one knows what’s really going down between Tyga and Kylie. Some days, he says they’re in love. On others, he claims they’re just friends. Either way, red flags were raised when people noticed the pair was spending TONS of time together despite their large age gap (he’s 25 and she’s 17). We’re not sure what their relationship status is as of right now, but he and his son (!!!!) attended Easter mass with the whole Kardash Klan. Yep…
7. When she was named one of TIME’s Most Influential Teens of 2014 (October 2014)
Malala Yousafzai and Kylie Jenner have almost nothing in common, right? Wrong! ‘Cause both ladies were featured on TIME magazine’s Most Influential Teens of 2014 list, which outraged tons of people. Seeing as Malala is the youngest Nobel Prize winner and Kylie is known from being born to a famous fam, we think the concern is pretty understandable.
8. When she apparently got a boob job (January 2015)
Kylie was used to people saying she got lip injections was they began questioning the realness of another part of her body — her breasts. It all started when KJ posted the above Instagram in which her chest looks WAY bigger than anyone had ever seen it. Some people claimed it was simply Photoshop, but others were basc positive that she’d gone under the knife at the ripe ol’ age of 17.
9. When she was accused of doing blackface (April 2015)
Kylie just recently found herself in the middle of a racist scandal when people interpreted photos of her to be blackface. The KUWTK star shot down the allegations, however, by saying that “the photographer used a black light & neon lights for those photos.”
