Kim Kardashian Explains Why Kylie Jenner Chose to Get Lip Injections So Young

Make no mistake about it: Kim Kardashian has her little sister Kylie Jenner’s back, despite all the criticism following the 17-year-old’s confession about her lips.

Kylie Jenner Reveals Her Lips Are Fake
Kylie Jenner has finally admitted her plump pout is indeed fake.

Just a few days after Kylie admitted she plumped her pout with lip injections, Kim is speaking out in support of her decision, telling Access Hollywood that it was a long time coming.

“At 10 and 11 years old she’d say, ‘Kimmy, how come my lips aren’t as big as your guys’?'” Kim explained in the interview, noting how Kylie sat on the idea of plumping her lips for quite some time before actually going through with it.

“What you’ll see on the show is, Kylie, for a really long time, she was over-lining her lips. That was the truth for a while, then she decided to plump them,” Kim explains. “‘She didn’t lie, it took her a while to actually make that decision to do it and once she decided to plump them.”

The reality star — who was a major factor in encouraging Kylie to “own up to it” — understands the public’s reaction to Kylie getting lip injections at the tender age of 17, but she adds: “If it’s going to make her feel better then I’m all for it. Now people can stop talking about it.”
