Kylie Jenner’s Bodyguard Accused of Shoving Jessica Alba at New York Fashion Week
Make way for King Kylie.
Kylie Jenner’s handlers don’t care if you’re rich or poor, they will treat you like cattle regardless. Page Six is reporting that Jessica Alba, the actress-turned-billionaire lifestyle guru, was one of the many VIPs who were manhandled by Jenner’s bodyguards after the Opening Ceremony show during New York Fashion Week.
As people were filing out of the building, Jenner’s security team were reportedly very rough with guests as they pushed forward to allow the 18-year-old and her boyfriend Tyga to leave first.
“After the show, trying to leave the venue, it was very crowded,” a source tells the publication. “Everyone was in the crush and Jessica had stopped briefly to say hi to someone when all of a sudden from behind came Jenner’s bodyguards. They just shoved Jessica out of the way. She looked astonished!”
Another insider adds that Alba “didn’t freak out” about the incident.
Fashion journalist Véronique Hyland of The Cut has also stepped forward to confirm just how rough the bodyguards were being, tweeting out:
Nothing like the light touch of Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard on your larynx to make you recognize your place in the ecosystem. #NYFW

However, this is not the first incident to have spawned from this New York Fashion Week in which a celebrity (or their team) mistreated a member of the press.
According to WWD, Justin Timberlake yelled at a fashion photographer for not asking permission before taking his picture at Rihanna’s party. When it was explained to the singer that the press was allowed to capture candids for the night, he reportedly snapped, “Fuck that. He should ask permission,” before sending two of his friends to hunt down the photographer.
Fashion: it’s apparently a very dangerous business.
