When you’re part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, rumours about plastic surgery are par for the course – but Kendall Jenner is making it clear once and for all that she hasn’t gone under the knife.
The reality star and in-demand model took to her website and app this week to debunk speculation she had had her lips done, after they appeared noticeably fuller during a Facebook Live appearance alongside younger sis Kylie in December.
“All of a sudden, photos of us came out with headlines like, ‘OMG Kendall got her lips done and got full facial reconstruction – look at her cheekbones, look at her nose!’” writes the 21-year-old.
“I was like, this is CRAZY. I didn’t even address it at the time. Because if I address it, people are going to be like, ‘Oh, so she’s defending herself – she must be guilty.’
“As a model, why would I have my face reconstructed? It doesn’t even make sense,” Kendall added.
At the time, the rumours gained so much traction that Kylie was later forced to explain it was her makeup skills – not plastic surgery – that were responsible for Kendall’s plumper pout.
“You guys Kendall let me overline her lip today with lipliner and everyone thinks she got lip injections. I’m sorry Kendall,” the 19-year-old confessed during a Snapchat video.
Of course, Kylie has her own much-discussed history with cosmetic procedures and previously opened up about getting temporary lip fillers in 2015.
“I’m not against plastic surgery. Full disclosure: I’ve only been under once before, when I went to the dentist and I didn’t react well; it really scared me. I threw up and I was SO nauseous the next day,” she wrote on her website.
“Bust as of now, I only have lip fillers. Like I’ve said before, it has always been a huge insecurity of mine and I wanted to make a change."
