Reality-TV star Kylie Jenner, of the Kardashian clan, is denying rumors circulating since last month that she has undergone cosmetic surgery.
"These plastic surgery rumors hurt my feelings to be honest and are kinda insulting," Jenner, the daughter of former Olympian Bruce Jenner and Kris Kardashian, tweeted Wednesday night. "Just in case anyone forgot . . I'm 16."
One minute later, in a post she has since deleted, Jenner added, "The wonders of putting a little makeup on."
Hailey Baldwin, daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and a friend of Jenner's, tweeted in response, "They just don't wanna believe people can be naturally beautiful," to which Jenner tweeted appreciatively, "I love you."
The rumors, based on side-by-side comparisons of recent photos, included claims of lip plumping, rhinoplasty and Botox injections. A representative for Jenner told a UK newspaper in March, when the rumors began, "That's so ridiculous and not true."
Jenner, who with her 18-year-old sister launched the Kendall & Kylie fashion line for PacSun last year, is half-sister to fellow reality stars Kourtney, Kim and Khloé Kardashian. She grew up in the public spotlight as a star of E!'s "Keeping Up with the Kardashians," and has modeled for magazines including OK! and Teen Vogue, in a Sears TV commercial and at NYC Fashion Week Fall 2011, for singer Avril Lavigne's Abbey Dawn line.
On Wednesday night's episode of the TBS prank show "Deal With It," Kylie and Kendall Jenner were hidden in the back of a restaurant feeding dialogue to a man on a date. When they had him use the phrase "crazy like the Kardashians," the woman he was with replied, "No, I'm not slutty." After being taken aback and laughing at the remark, the Jenners then prank the woman by walking into the dining room and taking a seat at the next table.
