Kylie Jenner and her sister Kendall were reportedly devastated when they learned that their parents Kris and Bruce Jenner were getting divorced. Now it seems that the youngest member of the Jenner/Kardashian clan has broken her silence on the subject with a poem posted online. According to Radar Online, the solemn verse is evidence of the teen’s “somber mood” following the announcement that her mother had officially filed for divorce from her track-star dad.
“i [sic] discovered that our
disconnect was never
because of the insecurities
we felt, but rather the
emptiness we created when
we failed to make
sense of ourselves.
As noted by MTV News, Kylie Jenner captioned the image of the typewritten poem “emptiness we created,” which could be a sad reference to her parents’ split. Kris and Bruce Jenner were married in 1991. They publicly announced their separation last October, and they officially filed for divorce just this month on September 22, 2014, citing irreconcilable differences. The famous “momager” and mother of Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, and Kylie filed for divorce first. Bruce Jenner was quick to follow. Kylie is the couple’s only minor child. They have requested joint custody of the teen.
So who is the poem’s creator, R. M. Drake? He is a Miami-based writer whose book of poetry Beautiful Chaos was released on August 5, 2014. His Instagram page is loaded with pics of lowercase (à la e e cummings) typewritten messages similar to the one that Kylie Jenner posted online shortly after her parents Kris and Bruce Jenner filed for divorce.
As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Kylie Jenner is rumored to be dating rapper Tyga, who is seven years older than she is. Despite the romance rumors, Tyga maintains that he is just a close family friend. Indeed, Tyga and Kim Kardashian have a close personal connection; he was once engaged to Kardashian’s close friend Blac Chyna, with whom he has one child, a son named King Cairo.
Kylie Jenner has recently been compared to older half-sister Kim Kardashian, thanks to her penchant for couture, skimpy bikinis, and pouty selfies. However, as The Inquisitr pointed out, there are physical differences between Jenner and Kardashian. The youngest daughter of Kris and Bruce Jenner has a naturally slender body, while the middle daughter of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian, Sr. has a more curvaceous build with a prominent and oft-celebrated backside and substantial cleavage. Then there’s the matter of their age difference. At 33, Kim is nearly twice the age of her younger sibling. Kylie Jenner is 17.
What do you think? Is the poem a message about her parents’ split, or does Kylie Jenner simply have an appreciation for the work of R. M. Drake? Your comments are welcomed.
