Kim Kardashian is accustomed to playing the role of wise big sister to Kylie Jenner. But now the roles of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians siblings have flipped, because amid hints that Kim is jealous of Kylie’s soaring success, Kardashian is turning to Jenner for tips on how to be a social media star, according to Hollywood Life.
At 35, Kim is in a heated battle with Kylie, 18, for the most popular star overall on social media. And when it comes to who’s winning, Kardashian is rapidly slipping behind Jenner. Moreover, a new lawsuit is adding to Kim’s worries.
“The latest lawsuit involving Kim’s failed beauty line has her upset and concerned,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She recently visited Kylie’s lip kit factory to see how she is doing things and to get some tips from the younger sister. Kim is considering another line of products and after getting sued for a failed beauty product, she went to Kylie to learn how to do it right.”
Not only is that humiliating, but Kardashian also is getting help from Jenner when it comes to social media. And wily Kylie is loving the attention, according to that source.
“Things have flipped for Kim and Kylie. Kylie loves all the attention she gets on social media and feels like her sisters had their era in the spotlight and now it’s her time…Kim is taking clues from Kylie.”
Secret’s In Pouty Poses, Says Kylie Jenner
But it’s not all sunshine in Jenner land. Kylie also is still taking heat for her confession that she sometimes uses temporary lip fillers, pointed out the Daily Mail.
But there’re no new fillers there, insists Jenner. Instead, she credits her artful pouting poses for creating the illusion of bigger, fuller lips. After showing off ways to pout perfectly to make her lips appear full, Kylie protested.
“The fact that we still even talk about my lips is so crazy,” complained the social media star. “Everybody thinks I keep making my lips bigger, but this is normally.”
While Jenner analyzes her lippy loose talk, a relationship expert is analyzing Kim and Kanye West when it comes to whether their marriage can last.
Kim & Kanye Divorce Rumors Swirl
Kardashian and West have been the subject of divorce rumors for months, as those hinting of a split point to Kanye’s Twitter rants and meltdowns amid silence from Kim. But a relationship expert claims that Kardashian and West are sticking together, according to Enstarz.
Andrea Sytrash contends that if Kanye and Kim lacked the drama that currently makes up their lives, their marriage would fail. For West and Kardashian, it’s not passion so much as their ability to prop one another up, she claims.
“They are both such big personalities, and their egos are so big, in a way they can work really well for each other to prop the other up,” clarified Andrea.
However, that doesn’t necessarily make for a successful, long-term marriage, she pointed out.
“Here is the problem with these Hollywood relationship. They are used to the drama, the excitement. A good relationship thrives of quiet moments, not on big over the top dramatic ones.”
And it may also not have helped much when West decided it was time to rant on Twitter.
Kanye Rants (Again) On Twitter
West has been relatively silent lately on social media, and consequently, those reports that Kanye and Kardashian were splitting had subsided. But now it’s time for a chorus of “oops, he did it again,” because West just turned again to Twitter for a wild new rant, noted Radar Online.
Kanye and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star previously experienced a “rough patch” in their marriage because of his antics, ranging from those Twitter rants to meltdowns. This resulted in some reports that Kim was ready to divorce him.
West’s latest Twitter rants range from Pablo to admitting his errors, with even a sense of humor tossed into the mix.
And Kanye finished up with a Tweet that said it all.
“I used an exclamation just to be an a**hole and also to make a point! LOL,” tweeted West.
