Kylie Jenner admitted earlier this year that she has lip fillers.
Because she was underage at the time, Jenner's mother, Kris Jenner, had to give her permission, which was not so easy to get.
"My mom was super against it, but I begged her and begged her and she finally let me do it," Jenner told Elle Canada. "After I did them, I thought it was so obvious that I didn’t have to say anything. I never denied it because I always told my publicist ‘no lip questions,’ so no one ever asked me. I never said I got them done, but I never denied it either. But people thought I was such a liar!”
Jenner, now 18, told the magazine that eventually she copped to it because rumors began to spread that she'd altered her body in other ways too. Ultimately, she felt the need to clear up the rumors.
“Yeah, then people were saying I got my chin reconstructed, that I got a nose job, an eyebrow lift, I got my boobs done, this and that. So I wanted to come out and say that this is crazy and I only got my lips done," she said. "I don’t think people realize that I just turned 18. There’s no way my mom or any doctor would let me go under the knife like that. That's just so crazy!'
She also wanted to do right by her fans. Explaining that she didn't want to be "a bad role model," Jenner also said she wanted temporary fillers because she was insecure about her looks, and not because she thinks everybody needs fuller lips.
“When I see my fans and they have blue hair or dress like me, it’s really cool and makes me feel good. But I don’t want them to think they have to look like me!" she added. "I want to inspire them to be themselves and not listen to anybody else."
