Kendall Jenner Opens Up About Parents Split: ‘It Sucked’

Kendall Jenner is having a relatively good year career wise, and she just landed a contract with cosmetics brand Estee Lauder.

“I grew up using Estee Lauder. I saw my mom [Kris Jenner] using it when I was a kid,” Jenner revealed to Nightline. “For me to grow up with it, and then to be working with them now, it’s so incredible.”

While her career may be going well, her family has had some turbulent times this past year. Jenner said it wasn’t easy seeing her parents’ separation and ultimate divorce play out in public.

“It sucked, but it’s not– I try to think of it as it’s not the worst thing that could have happened,” she said. “I still am so close with both my dad and my mom. Nothing has really changed, except for the fact that now my dad lives on a beach, which is awesome. That’s not that bad… everybody’s happy.”

Living in the limelight can be tough for anyone, especially for a 19-year-old.

This fall, the Australian tabloid Famous ran a photo of Kendall with the headline, “You’re Too Fat For Runway,” but Jenner chose not to acknowledge it.

“I don’t feel the need, you know what I mean? Let them do what they want to do. Let them sit behind a computer and write stupid things about a young girl and make her feel bad about herself,” she said. “I think it’s cruel and it’s evil.”

“Why would you ever want to live your life like that? So like, just traumatized, by what everybody is saying about you?” Jenner went on. “If you just ignore it and go on and you’re like, ‘I know what’s real.’ My family, my friends, they know what’s real. So what else, why does that matter?”
