Kylie Kristen Jenner (born August 10, 1997) is an American reality television personality, socialite and model. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, she is best known for appearing on the E! reality television series Keeping Up with the Kardashians. In 2012, she collaborated with the clothing brand PacSun, along with her sister Kendall, and created their own line “Kendall & Kylie”. Their sci-fi novel, Rebels: City of Indra, was released in 2014. Time magazine named the Jenner sisters in “The 25 Most Influential Teens of 2014” for their considerable influence among teens on social media.
Jenner was born in Los Angeles, California. She is the youngest daughter of 1976 Summer Olympics decathlon winner Caitlyn Jenner (born Bruce) and TV personality Kris Jenner. She has an older sister, Kendall. On Kris’s side of the family, she has three older half-sisters, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, and Khloé Kardashian, and one older half-brother, Rob Kardashian. Jenner also has three older half-brothers from Caitlyn’s side of the family—Burt, Brandon, and Brody Jenner—and an older half-sister, Casey. Jenner attended Sierra Canyon School, where she was a member of the cheerleading team. In 2012, she decided homeschooling would be a better option and enrolled in an at-home education program, from which she graduated with a high school diploma in July 2015 from Laurel Springs School.
In February 2015, Jenner purchased a $2.7 million five-bedroom, 5.5-bath mansion in an upscale gated community in Calabasas, California, which she made her primary residence upon her 18th birthday.
Jenner set up an eBay account where she auctions old clothing to raise money for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. The Kardashian and Jenner sisters used eBay in this way to raise $27,682.96 for their charities in 2013. Jenner joined her family in a charity yard sale on November 10, 2013. Proceeds from the sale were donation-matched and sent to Share Our Strength: No Kid Hungry and the Greater Los Angeles Fisher House Foundation. She joined Khloe, Kendall, Lil Twist, and The Game at PINZ bowling alley in Studio City, California for a charity bowling game on January 19, 2014. The event was held to raise money for The Robin Hood Foundation, a nonprofit for which The Game pledged to raise $1 million in donations. The Jenner sisters participated in singer Chris Brown’s two Kick’n It For Charity Celebrity Kickball games in Glendale, California on July 19, 2014 and on August 16, 2014. At the first game, she competed on actor/singer Quincy Brown’s Team; while Kendall played on Chris Brown’s Team Breezy.
In May 2015, an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered in which Jenner admitted to getting a lip augmentation. Her enhanced lips from lip fillers created speculation and gained her publicity. Prior to the episode’s debut, Jenner stated that she merely used lip liner and over lined her lips. As a result, the practice of suctioning one’s lips into a small glass in order to induce greater blood flow to swell the lips was called the “Kylie Jenner Challenge” (though there was no indication that Jenner herself employed this method). Jenner responded to this by stating, “I’m not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look.”
