Kylie Jenner and her family members have been open about her struggle to fully come to terms with her father’s transition. She’s even shared her feelings on the topic during the most recent episodes of their family’s hit show Keeping Up With the Kardashians! But Bruce Jenner’s very public transition may have now left Kylie frustrated with reality TV, and a source now says she may be considering leaving KUWTK for good.
After confirming reports in the spring that he would be transitioning from a man to a woman, Bruce made the decision to share his story with the world in a historical 20/20 interview with Diane Sawyer. He then followed up his ABC interview with a two-part KUWTK special devoted solely to his transition and how his family is coping with it.
Kylie, who is the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner girls, participated in the KUWTK special and opened up about her father’s transition in the KUWTK episodes following the special. But though she appears to okay with her dad sharing the details of his transition with the public, a source told Life & Style that the teenager is quickly becoming frustrated with living her her life in front of the camera.
“She has no interest in being a part of the series anymore.” the insider said. “The entire experience with Bruce has made her realize it’s time to leave.”
The source added that Bruce felt he had given enough time for his family to deal with his transition before going public, however “Kylie wasn’t ready and feels blindsided.” And a second source even explained why Kylie was featured less than her other sisters during the second half of Bruce’s KUWTK transition special. “She’s not coming a across well on camera, so she figures why not leave. She just wants to hang with her friends,” the source said.
With the large amount of fame Kylie has gained from he reality show, many don’t see her departure hurting her career if she does choose to part ways with the show. And with her recent business ventures added into the equation, such as her PacSun clothing collection with her sister Kendall Jenner and her hair extensions line, the teen likely won't be hurting financially by leaving the show either.
However, with the show’s devoted fan base and the fact she’s been participating on the hit reality series for 10 seasons, some fans aren’t too excited about the prospect that she won’t be returning to the show. But Kylie’s family and friends are more concerned about her rocky past few months and the risk of her burning out! “It’s been a compete downward spiral for Kylie,” the insider said. “She’s been partying up a storm and self-medicating: she is lost.” The source added that she has informed her family that “she has had it with everyone and everything.” Do you think Kylie needs to take a break from the spotlight and Keeping Up With the Kardashians?
