Kylie Jenner posed topless for the cover of Complex magazine and opened up about her seemingly codependent relationship with rapper Tyga. The reality star told the interviewer that, “We basically need to be together at all times.” What else did Jenner open up about?
Kylie Jenner covered the front of the October/November issue of Complex in nothing but a pair of latex fingerless gloves, nipple pasties, and her hair wrapped in a high ponytail. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star spoke candidly with the interviewer about her close relationship with Tyga, her cosmetics line, to her lip injections and the controversy they have caused.
Kylie spoke about posing for the cover of the magazine topless. Jenner instructed everyone to leave to leave the room except for Tyga.
“I’m comfortable with my body, but not that comfortable.
I’m not going to be walking around like that with a bunch of guys there.”
Tyga apparently looked on throughout the majority of the photo shoot.
Kylie spoke a lot about her relationship with Tyga, saying that the rapper has gotten her through her toughest of days.
“At the end of the day I have to live with everything I do.”
The youngest Jenner sibling often struggles with the constant media scrutiny.
“I’m just proud of myself for not going crazy. Tyga helped me with that a lot.”
Kylie and Tyga’s relationship has been under the spotlight since the beginning due to their age difference. Jenner is now 19 and Tyga is 26.
Sister Khloe Kardashian spoke with Complex in defense of her sister, explaining that the Kardashian/Jenner family hasn’t exactly had a normal upbringing.
“You have to put things into perspective.
“Kylie has to deal with all these responsibilities, but no one wants to treat her as an [adult] when it comes to relationships. But I love that T [Tyga] and Kylie didn’t care.
“They just did what made them happy. They’re so in love, and I think they’re cute together.”
Kylie spoke about how when she and the rapper had first gotten together, that they had both been warned to stay away from each other, but they didn’t listen.
“The first year we started hanging out, everyone around him told him not to be with me. I still get comments like, ‘Don’t be with him.’ But we’re not doing it for the public—we love each other.
“We need to be together at all times. We never get mad at each other, we just figure things out.”
Despite what Jenner said, the couple did go through a short-term split in May.
“I just needed to see what it was like not being with him.
“We realized that wasn’t what we wanted.”
During the break, Kylie was spotted hanging around rapper PartyNextDoor, stirring up rumors that they were a couple.
In addition to talking about her extremely close relationship to Tyga, Kylie also spoke about her trend-sparking lip injections. The reality star even admitted to why she had lied about them for so long.
“I wasn’t even 17 yet.”
Jenner claims that she did not want to be a bad influence on her younger fans.
“What if I came out and said, ‘Oh, yeah, I got my lips done’? What are all those moms going to think about me? These kids, my fans, they’re going to think I’m crazy. I didn’t want to be a bad influence.”
Kylie admitted to wishing she had just been truthful about getting her lips done upfront.
“I didn’t want people to think you had to get your lips done to feel good about yourself. But they thought it was crazier that I was lying about it because it was so obvious. I wish I had just been honest and upfront.”
The youngest sister out of the Kardashian/Jenner clan fessed up to feeling completely insecure about her lips.
“My lips have been an insecurity all my life. I felt like no one wanted to kiss me.”
The reality star even claims that she went too far with the cosmetic procedures, making her lips so big that at one point it was painful.
“When you first get them done, you’re like, ‘Oh, it could be a little bit bigger on that side.’ I’d go back and be like, ‘They went down’ and think they could be bigger.”
“But I went too far. It was very painful.”
Kylie goes on to comment about the #kyliejennerlipchallenge that created a viral sensation and bruised lips around the world.
