"My mom cut me off financially three years ago," Kylie told InStyle. "So I pay for everything—my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes." However, family insiders have revealed that Kris still covered the basic items Kylie needed at the house, including food and laundry.
"Kris has always taught the girls about the importance of financial responsibility and independence," a source told E! News.
The source added, "Kris has taught all the girls that if they want something, they have to work for it. Kris made sure she paid for Kylie's car, for medical, for housing, for food, for vacations. All the usual stuff. If she wanted to buy new clothes, she would have to save up. If they wanted extras they had to buy extras."
A source speaking with People also clarified Kylie’s statement, saying that the teen "had a refrigerator full of food and all the luxuries that come with living with Mom but unless it was a gift, if she wanted a new Chanel bag, Kylie was the one paying for it.” And the source added that it wasn’t at all “like she wasn't getting anything from her mom while living at home."
But as Kylie counts down to her quickly approaching 18th birthday, the reality TV star is appearing to be more financially stable than ever. She has several successful business ventures to her name, including her hair extensions line and her and her sister Kendall Jenner’s clothing collaborations with both PacSun and Topshop. And she and Kendall appear to also be working on a new fashion project of their own, which they recently teased on Twitter and Instagram.
And Kylie isn’t hurting in the housing department either these days, with the teen recently purchasing a $2.7 million mansion that she is currently in the process of decorating and plans to move into in the coming months!
