Momager Kris Jenner is cracking the whip on her famous kids. With her own reputation suffering, Kris Jenner scolded her famous daughter Kylie Jenner this week. According to TMZ, Kylie got into hot water with fans when she ignored requests for a picture. The video appears to show Kylie Jenner turning to a young fan and saying “Please! Don’t touch me!” when the fan tugged on Kylie’s arm to ask for a photograph.
Kylie Jenner claims that the fan later came into the restaurant at Kylie’s request, but the damage was done. At least, that’s how Kris Jenner took it. According to Hollywood Life, Kris Jenner had a meeting with her youngest daughter. Kris Jenner told Kylie in no uncertain terms that she has to be nicer to her fans. Especially when they ask for photos.
“Kris has told Kylie countless times she has to respect her fans. After all, they were the ones that put her on the map and if they ask her for a photo she should oblige.”
After Kris Jenner laid down the law, Kylie made a point of taking photos. Outside The Nice Guy, Kylie stopped for photos and a scuffle erupted between a grandfather and a photographer.
Don’t expect Kris Jenner to change her mind about photographs anytime soon. Even with the secondary scuffle. The fact is the Kardashian-Jenner clan need as many fans on their side as possible.
In a year where the first family of reality television has struggled with internal clashes, fan support has been the one thing they could count on. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, while the Kardashian-Jenner men have struggled this year, the Kardashian women have hit new heights. But that could all change if fan support turns against them.
Kylie, in particular, is vulnerable to backlash. Fans weathered a series of bad press aimed at Kylie in the past year, thanks to her relationship with rapper Tyga. Kylie Jenner and Tyga waited until her 18th birthday to go public with their relationship. But many suspected that the two began dating while Kylie was underage.
When Tyga’s ex-girlfriend, Blac Chyna, started an ugly social media feud with Kylie, fans sided with the young reality star. But the situation became more complicated in 2016 when Blac Chyna started a relationship with Kris Jenner’s only son, Rob Kardashian.
Once painted as the jealous ex-girlfriend of a member of the Kardashian-Jenner inner circle, suddenly Blac Chyna became the one whose love brought Rob Kardashian from the brink of destruction. Since he began dating Blac Chyna, Rob Kardashian has taken renewed interest in his health and his business. And even the most skeptical Kardashian fan seems to be warming to her.
This is bad news for Kris Jenner because it highlights an oft-repeated detraction aimed at her family. The women of the Kardashian-Jenner clan thrive, but the men that love them fall to ruin. And those suspicions only seemed to be confirmed by recent rumors.
According to Radar Online, Kris Jenner and Rob Kardashian are in danger of falling out again. This time over his association with Blac Chyna’s mother, Tokyo Toni. It seems that Rob and Tokyo Toni have become close as his relationship with Blac Chyna deepens. That doesn’t sit well with Kris Jenner because Tokyo Toni has cast a lot of shade on the Kardashian-Jenner family. Most recently, Tokyo Toni suggested that Khloe Kardashian’s father was really O.J. Simpson.
To make matters worse, a new tell-all threatens to tarnish the Kardashian-Jenner family name beyond repair. Investigative reporter Ian Halperin will release Kardashian Dynasty, an exposé of the family’s rise to fame, on April 19. Among the most scandalous of Halperin’s accusations is that Kris Jenner tried to cure ex Caitlyn Jenner of gender dysphoria because she felt it would damage the family brand.
