17-year-old Kylie Jenner has finally confirmed one of the Kardashian family’s worst kept secrets – she has had lip injections. She has never admitted to the cosmetic procedure before, despite being questioned about her changing appearance for years.
‘I have had temporary lip fillers,’ she says in an E! clip from Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It’s just something that I wanted to do.’
Kylie said she ‘wasn’t ready’ to talk directly to the press about the procedure and instead decided not to ‘confirm or deny’ it when asked by reporters. In another clip, her sister Khloe Kardashian advises that she ‘cop to it’ adding: ‘If you avoid the question, you’re going to look like a liar.’
The short video depicts the two sisters at a media event, where Kylie rushes to Khloe’s side after being interviewed by members of the press, saying: ‘My heart literally dropped. They were like…’
‘They asked you?’ Khloe, 30, responds. Yeah,’ the teenager says, ‘They were like, “So all this lip talk. You know like tell… how do you feel about it?” I was like “ahhhhh”.’
It then cuts to Khloe telling the camera in a confessional segment: ‘Kylie decided to plump her lips and I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.
‘I think if you’ve done something though, it is right to cop up to it. If you avoid the question you’re gonna look like a liar.’
Previously, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star staunchly maintained that her lips were all natural, and that the fullness she often flaunts on social media is down to clever make-up application.
‘I feel like everyone has been talking about it for months, so I’m kind of sick of it,’ she recently told E! in an interview when asked about her pout. My pictures, I pout them out a lot. I think big lips are awesome,’ she added. ‘I love lip liner and over-lining my lips.’ But I don’t even care anymore. I’m like whatever, just say whatever you want.’
And even her make-up artist Rob Scheppy denied reports that the 17-year-old’s lips are fake in an exclusive interview with FEMAIL in December, saying:
‘I find it funny that so much attention is drawn to my work, but I like it,’ adding, ‘Kylie’s lips are created using expertly applied lip liner and a little lip balm.’
While in April last year, Kylie tweeted her own denial.
‘These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting,’ adding, ‘Just in case anyone forgot… I’m 16’.
