Kylie Jenner’s app gets revealing: ‘a very personal post I would never approve’

A photo posted by Kylie (@kyliejenner) on

You’d never think Kylie Jenner, who posts seemingly every life moment to social media, would ever be accused of “TMI,” but there’s a time for everything. The 19-year-old makeup maven over shared on her personal app in a short-lived post describing, in part, how she keeps her love life with beau Tyga spicy.

Fans who paid the $2.99 per month to allegedly receive “premium paid content from Kylie’s world, bringing you closer to her than ever before,” were treated to a post on Tuesday in which Kylie shared her secrets to keeping her man happy, which included “[spicing] things up with lingerie, toys and massages.” The post was quickly taken down, but, since we live in the electronic age, there’s a screenshot.

After the post was removed, Kylie took to Twitter to apologize to her fans. Of course, she took no responsibility, instead throwing her staff under the bus:

Later, fully aware of who signs their paychecks, the app team posted an apology of their own:

This morning, a drafted article was inadvertently posted for a short period of time on Kylie’s app. This was a draft that was not in Kylie’s words, was not Kylie’s idea and had not been sent to her for approval,” a statement posted to her app read. “We’d like to sincerely apologize to Kylie for his mistake … We deeply regret that this happened and will work hard to ensure this never occurs again.

[From US Magazine]

Seems like a case of “much ado about nothing,” don’t you think? I honestly know relatively little about Kylie, but I don’t see what is so “scandalous” about what she wrote. When you post a photo of you and your guy in a topless embrace on social media, I think it’s safe to assume that you’re probably doing the nasty. The “scandal” may be that the post reads like it was lifted from Cosmo.

Oh, and I’m not a betting woman, but I’d lay down a huge chunk of change that not one word of this was written by Kylie herself. Pop culture expert Cate Meighan told FOX411 that with the revenue social media promotion can bring in, “celebs will go out of their way to make sure that these particular posts are perfect so that they get paid. That means having someone else draft it with the necessary details.” PR and branding expert Scott Pinsker added that celebrity ghostwriters may be more prevalent than you might think, telling Fox:

Not every celebrity is a skilled communicator, and many are extremely busy, hard-working people, so delegating social media activity to third parties isn’t as uncommon as you might think,” he said. “They view Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as promotional platforms, rather than as an intimate window to their day-to-day lives. It’s more about monetization than honesty, and more about feigned intimacy than authenticity.

What I really want to know is why, with the amount of posting she does on her own social media amounts, paired with the fact that her life just isn’t that interesting, would anyone pay $2.99 a month for even more vapid commentary and self-promotion? I know I should probably follow that question up with “Now, get off of my lawn,” but really? She’s all over Twitter and Instagram for free and she’s got merchandise from clothing to a calendar (which, hilariously, has Kylie’s birthday listed on the wrong date) – do people really need more from her?

    Anything from the Kardashian/Jenners: SSDD

    “would anyone pay $2.99 a month for even more vapid commentary and self-promotion?”
    thats not even her own words and thoughts! i mean why do people pay for that stuff when it not even comes from the vapid celeb themselves? “personal app” yeah right.

    • Mrs. Welin-Melon says:

      We’re all shocked -shocked!- that a Kardashian/Jenner’s social media is as enhanced as her lips, boobs, and butt. Shocked!

    • Emily says:

      And they’re not even pretending! “This was a draft that was not in Kylie’s words, was not Kylie’s idea and had not been sent to her for approval”

      If I was subscribing to her app, I would feel very ripped off.

      • Loopy says:

        Her fans have been complaining so why are they paying if its not from her, but do celebrities really run all their social media, maybe twitter or Instagram because I suppose its easier and instant but apps with video production etc I doubt it.

      • zxc says:

        Her fans are about 12. Maybe 16. That’s why the freak-out, parents probably lost their sh*t. Also, KK are sexist people. They talk about how they’re “successful businesswomen” but really, they break no barriers for women. Their public image is supposed to be sexy but not sexual.

    • Petee says:

      No one in there right mind would.I just can’t believe how much work she has had done.And please get smart and ditch your boyfriend.He is just Gross in so many ways.

    • pinetree13 says:

      She posts daily updates on her snap chat so why on earth would you want/need anything more?
      Her new boobs look good in photos BUT SUPER RIDICULOUSLY FAKE in her snap chat videos. It’s weird because all her changes look good in photos but not in person at all. In person she looks “over-surgeried”. sad.

    • tealily says:

      So wait… why does she then say that she will NOT be “posting personally” on the app anymore? Does she mean the app is kaput, or that someone else will be handling all the posting. I’m so confused. That post doesn’t even seem at all personal. It’s pretty generic, actually.

  3. Lifethelifeaquatic says:

    There are photos of her vacationing in Mexico with her new ass. I find it all very amusing. New booty rollout

    • Loopy says:

      Her ass honestly looks painful and pink,i think she got implants like Nicki Minaj and not fat transfers like her elder sisters.

    • Giddy says:

      Yes, she now has the Kardashian Klassy Kaboose™.

      • VELOURAZURE says:

        What are the rules with these people? Some dumb post about sex toys is “too personal” but photos of her giant naked ass straddling her boyfriend all over the internet are not? Consistency please….

      • Tourmaline says:

        @VELOURAZURE my god yes extreme closeups of Tyga grappling poolside with the Giant Ass of Doom, and this Glamour-magazine level puff post is oh too personal, oh too revealing of their sacred private relationship!

      • Annetommy says:

        Klassic post! 😀

      • Erica_V says:

        @ Tourmline – I had to look and omg my eyes!!! Also the next time she claims she hasn’t had her breasts done someone better punch her in her face. Those are some serious bolt-ons. You can clearly tell from the side view.

      • tealily says:

        @VELOURAZURE Maybe she meant the detail about the chopsticks? *shrug*

      • zxc says:


        The difference is she’s objectified in the staged ass pics whereas the post painted her as a sexual being with an active role. They are supposed to be blow up dolls.

  4. detritus says:

    Of course most celebs have a social media handler. You are a brand, and like the lady said, these are hot people, not always smart people.

  5. Alix says:

    Posting pix of those “bloated” boobs again, I see.

  6. Lora says:


  7. Goats on the Roof says:

    Of course Kylie didn’t write a lick of that post. The apology from the app team says she didn’t write it or approve it.

  8. Runcmc says:

    That black and white photo is terrifying. She looks like a creepy sexy drawing, not even like a real human anymore. Reminds me of that episode of It’s Always Sunny where Dennis drew a “perfect model”.

    • Diana B says:

      I was thinking the same thing. She looks deformed like a cartoon. Scary indeed.

    • Erinn says:

      +1000000 for Sunny reference.

      I will say though- I want her hair in that photo. Color, curls, all of it. I know it’s probably mostly clip ins, but it gives me major hair envy. I recently cut about 8″ -10″ off my length, and holy crap hair at color bone level is driving me nuts. It’s so thick now, and because I have a natural wave that I was suppressing for years, it’s flipping in weird directions even when I blowdry it straight. If I encourage the wave, it’s at a weird point where it’s a lot lighter and doesn’t cooperate as much as it did when it was weighed down. So seeing her hair in that photo -regardless of how fake it is, definitely gives me a little bit of envy. Looking past the hair though? It’s kind of sad, really.

      She’s honestly (or was) a cute girl. It’s a shame that she feels the need to do all of this to her face and body. Makeup is one thing – you can take that off. But once you start making changes to the structure – and when you’re so young- there’s a decent chance you’re going to regret it later.

      • tmot says:

        I have a wave too, and the length really affects the level of waviness. Some product should help you weight it down a little and control it better until it gets longer. I have this stuff that you apply to damp hair & then scrunch it and it comes out wavy, not frizzy – looks “under control” but not like a roller set.

        Good luck! Waves 4eva!

  9. Honeybadger says:

    Will this ridiculous family ever go away?

  10. paolanqar says:

    So, Kim re-emerges with no ass and Kylie goes on holiday with a new one.
    Do the sisters just squirrel the fat from one body to the other? They are so gross and think we are blind.

    • Runcmc says:

      Wait really where? I saw pics of Kim walking around with those ridiculous ripped jean rags and she looked like her a$$ was as big and ridiculous as ever.

    • tmot says:

      Maybe it’s inflatable.

      OK, that was my one Kardashian Komment for 2017! Whew, got that over with!

  11. lala says:

    The whole post wasn’t even that scandalous and the tips aren’t anything groundbreaking. Just sounded like an outdated cosmo article about ways to please your man. If anything, I think she made a big fuss about it because nobody would have paid any attention to it otherwise.

  12. RussianBlueCat says:

    More likely she didn’t get Demon Mother’s approval to put up that post. Kris probably thought it would damage the “family brand” and told Kylie to take it down. But it did bring more attention to the family. Keeping the public somewhat interested until Kim drops the divorce bomb.

  13. grabbyhands says:

    More manufactured scandal from the stunt queen first family.

    Also, if she isn’t posting personally on her own app anymore, what is the incentive for people the buy it? I mean, I’m not saying they won’t, but it doesn’t make sense.

  14. BangersandMash says:

    Mmmhm. Okay, so she talked too a writer about what goes down with her and her dependant… They wrote that stuff cosmo style to satisfy the 16 year olds paying $3 a month to get “exclusives” on one of the most boring teens on the planet.

    And the back pedalling begins.

    She doesnt want the world to know just how Tyga is playing her 19 year old brain?

  15. lightpurple says:

    Surprise him with gifts by getting him something for his birthday? My boyfriend would be surprised if I did NOT get him something for his birthday.

    And personalized chopsticks! That must have gone over so much better than the car.

  16. Talie says:

    What she wrote makes no sense…she won’t he posting personally, but on the flipside, she never wrote this very personal post. WTF?!

    I guess she just likes to hint at sex, not talk about it.

  17. Kristen says:

    That entire post can be summarized by “Cook for him, cook for his friends, buy him things and boink him frequently.” I realize she didn’t write it, but it still made me sad.

    • Lynnie says:

      I mean she’s only 19 and and started getting groomed by him around 16. I’m sure he’s manipulated her into bending over backwards to please him and that in addition to her immaturity makes for a sad one-sided relationship.

      That being said we’re the same age and you couldn’t pay me enough money in the world to be a glorified hostess for my BF’s friends 😒😒. She has too much time on her hands.

      • me says:

        But this really doesn’t fit the profile of someone raised by PMK does it? They all choose mates they can control so I don’t know if I believe anything Kylie is saying.

    • hogtowngooner says:

      Yup. I hate this entire family, but that’s very sad. Nothing wrong with doing something nice for your significant other but damn girl, what the hell does he do for you?? He doesn’t even pay his own bills FFS! He’s such a deadbeat.

  18. MissMerry says:

    good question posed at the end. I think it’s all fake: the fans, the followers, the popularity.

    honestly, i dont think as many people ‘like’ her and her family as much as it seems or they claim online. you can make up followers, claim anything you want and unless somebody digs and does research, we just kinda believe them.

    why anybody would pay to know more info about anyone is beyond me, but especially these people.

    also, i dont think she has sex or keeps it spicy with anyone. i feel like she can’t be touched, or she might deflate.

    • Lady D says:

      With the amount of product and makeup she wears, it would be her squirting through his fingers not….

    • Lex says:

      Youtube started unsubscribing people from channels who never watched or commented on videos as some of those youtube stars’ actual following is significantly smaller than it seems. Subscribers can be bought on all manner of social media so it was funny to see whose rates dropped like crazy.

      I’d imagine Kylie’s ‘fame/popularity’ level is quite exaggerated. Although, someone is buying her lip kits. I bet they only release 100 at a time and then claim to be ‘sold out’ though to create a buzz and a desire.

  19. Kris says:

    Nothing these people do is ever NOT on purpose.

  20. Alleycat says:

    God, looking at pictures of Tyga make me sick. How can anyone in that family approve of him dating Kylie. I get that normally this family doesn’t care about anything other than vapid stuff, but he’s not even successful. He’s literally mooching off this teen. And he’s so unattractive. Blech.

  21. Tiffany27 says:

    Did she include anything about helping him raise his kid who technically is also her nephew? Or anything about helping your man when his car is repoed for the 17th time?

  22. Kris says:

    Honsetly, if I met these peple in the street, I’d cross the street. They look like a very cheap pimp with his very cheap hooker. I’m so glad I don’t have kids, because if they’d rebel against me by “following” that sort of thing, i’d have to shoot myself.

  23. swak says:

    Yet she had no problem posting a picture of Tyga naked from the waste down and her bent over with him behind her.

  24. Calico Cat says:

    “Take good care of his friends, too!”

    Yeah, I just bet you are, Kylie!

  25. A says:

    The whole list reads like some kind of modern, updated-for-language version of the lists they would publish for housewives in the 60s. You know the ones where it’s always like, “Don’t ask him about his work day, he’s worked hard and wants to come home and relax, so get him a nice glass of bourbon instead!” etc etc. Yeah. Same schtick tbh. Whoever wrote it clearly doesn’t want to talk about the fact that the Kardashians are the only reason Tyga stays in the press anyway.

  26. OriginallyBlue says:

    She cooks? Honestly these people are so f*cking dull it hurts. Girl is 19 and should be in college making friends and learning stuff not playing 60’s housewife to her loser boyfriend. I can’t imagine what will happen when they break up for good. She’s like his shadow.

    • jwoolman says:

      She lost me at baking cookies. The girl doesn’t even know how to do laundry.

    • Ange says:

      And I am definitely not going to take sex/life advice from a little girl with no self esteem and a shitty boyfriend. Like, even with all your money your life sucks girlfriend, I am doing it a million times better thanks. Plus I have actually had more than one boyfriend lol.

      • Lex says:

        Of all the things to criticise about Kylie, her having “only” one boyfriend is not one of them… that’s a super odd comment!

  27. Tifzlan says:


    She tries sooooo hard to be an adult but it comes off more and more “little kid trying on mom’s shoes” every single time. I don’t know whether to feel sorry for her or not.

    • QQ says:

      Chopsticks is all he was entitled to after she deducted the car bailout budget and Chyna’s Child support out of his Budget, though, so… it makes sense

    • tealily says:

      I’m sure he “mentioned” wanting them. @QQ Bwahahahahahahahahaha!

  28. serena says:

    So, she just does everything for her man.. good for her, it just doesn’t look like a very balanced relationship. I wonder what does Tyga bring to it? (My guess: nothing).

    • OriginallyBlue says:

      Collection calls and drama? She does everything for him and pays for a lot for him. I go back and forth with how bad I feel for her.

    • Bess says:

      It’s a completely unbalanced and unhealthy relationship. I can’t understand why Kylie’s family doesn’t seem to care that she’s supporting a loser.

      If TMZ wanted to earn their money and readership, they should hire a private investigator to follow Tyga to find out if and how he actually makes money.

    • Annetommy says:

      His handsome face, hunky bod, and winning personality…

  29. me says:

    Do these girls actually do ANYTHING themselves? Even their posts are written by others because they’re just “too busy” huh?

    • Mare says:

      She’s also referred to as a “make-up maven” when all she did was slap her name on products that someone else manufactured.

      • Brittney Buckley says:

        Mare, that’s just Corey’s style. It’s already evening out a bit (less overly glowing and fluffy than in the first few weeks), so just give it time.

    • tealily says:

      @me And that is, ostensibly, THE thing they do!

  30. Brittney Buckley says:

    I’m a ghostwriter, and I never believed for a second that this family wrote any of their own posts. After being paid to mimic public figures’ voices (but with specific content, perfect grammar, etc.), I can’t read anything online anymore. The veil has lifted.

    Then again, you don’t have to be a pro (far from it!) to realize Kylie’s too vapid and uneducated to write even the simplest articles.

  31. Redgrl says:

    Get off social media and go back to school ffs!

  32. Debutante says:

    This chick has no self esteem. Even with all of the plastic surgery, THIS ugly thing is the best she can do ?!
    My parents would have beat my a#$ and thrown me out of the house if I showed up with some scum like this .

  33. jen says:

    My relationship with Tyga would be greatly improved if Kylie would buy him a chin implant

  34. Alarmjaguar says:

    Truer words: “It’s more about monetization than honesty, and more about feigned intimacy than authenticity.”

  35. LaLa says:

    As a web designer/social media manager… I’ve worked on apps and campaigns for huge celebrities. We NEVER EVER post anything without client consent. Most changes/updates go through several layers of approval before being posted online. PMK is known for pimping out her daughters and setting them up with less than stellar business deals. My bet is that she’s responsible for approving “Kylie’s content” on the app. Kylie probably saw what Kris approved and flipped on her for posting something so stupid… In turn Kris pointed the finger at the poor agency running the sh*tty app.
