Kris Jenner once pulled the strings for her Kardashian daughters but that could soon be changing.
Kris may no longer be a manager to her daughter Kendall amid reports that the 18-year-0ld model is looking to move out of the house and move beyond her family’s fame.
Kris has taken tight control over the lives of her daughters, guiding their career decisions and building a reality television empire around the Kardashian brand. Her efforts have even earned Kris the nickname “momager.”
But that may be changing. There are reports that her daughters have wanted to take more control of their own careers, including rumors that daughter Khloe Kardashian wants to let her relationship with Lamar Odom play out without her mother’s input and control.
Now it appears that Kendall Jenner wants to move outside that strict control. Sources say the 18-year-old Kendall, a rising star in the modeling world, wants to fire her mom as a manager and move out on her own.
“She’s moved out of the family home into her own LA apartment,” sources said. “With [sister] Kim [Kardashian West] and Kanye [West] living there, everything felt too crazy and she’s keen to scale back her involvement in the reality show.
“She’s thought to be considering a move to Paris, and there are whispers Kris may be asked to step down as her manager.”
There have been reports of tension between Kendall Jenner and the rest of her family. Even before reports that she wanted to fire manager Kris Jenner, sources close to the family claimed that her younger sister Kylie wasn’t getting along well and was jealous of the attention Kendall got in her modeling career.
Others say that Kendall has grown tired of the endless media attention that her Kardashian sisters welcome. Kendall reportedly thinks it could even be holding back her modeling career.
“She wants to be accepted by the industry on her own terms, which is impossible when Kim and Kanye are arriving in headline-grabbing outfits,” a source said. “Kim means the world to Kendall, and vice versa, but they increasingly belong in different worlds.”
If the report about Kendall Jenner moving out on her own is true, it would mean a difficult year for Kris Jenner. She recently opened up about her divorce from Bruce Jenner, saying she felt like a “failure” when their nearly two-decade marriage fell apart.
