The Kardashians have a storied relationship with the tabloids. Over the years, their go-to for lifestyle exclusives has been Us Weekly. The magazine was invited to document Kim Kardashian’s honeymoon to Kris Humphries. The editors regularly release cloying pro-Kardashian non-stories. And when Kris Jenner released Bruce Jenner back into the wild, Us documented that too.
The Kardashians don’t have much of a relationship with PEOPLE, though, aside from one Khloe cover a few years back when she declared “divorce was not an option.”
PEOPLE is the more-established PR mouthpiece. But it’s generally against slumming so, although it gives out so many industry handies it’s affectionately known as “KNEE PADS”, it’s not actually pro-Kardashian. Nor are the rest of the tabloids.
Which explains why, this week, we’re getting a Star cover about Kris Jenner’s kids’ alleged drinking problem. AND an uncharacteristically-critical PEOPLE story about what a brat Kylie Jenner is.
On Oct. 18, the 16-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star reportedly cruised into a luxe Beverly Hills hotel around 8:30 p.m. with her longtime friend Jaden Smith, 15, and a group of other young pals.
According to a hotel source, Kylie was in “a good mood” – that is, until she requested employees provide her and her pals alcohol and bottle service.
An insider claims that when Kylie was turned down, she berated the hotel host, asking, “Do you know who I am?” The source adds that the reality star also declared the swanky hotel “not worth her time.”
We’re told the host held firm as Jenner stormed out of the bar with her entourage while reportedly cursing that the establishment was “f**king lame.”
“She was a complete nightmare,” says the hotel source. “She started out really nice. But when she didn’t get what she wanted, it was like someone flipped a switch.”
Reps had no comment, but Kylie took to Twitter on Wednesday to address recent reports that she and sister Kendall, 17, are headed down the wrong path.
“I’m not going to sit around and let grown adults create untrue stories about me underage drinking & partying every night with a fake I.D. And F.Y.I. regarding the ‘club nights’, I was with my father & family supporting my brother and sister-in-law,” she wrote on her Twitter page.
Though the teen defends her dad-supervised evening on Oct. 19 at The Troubadour, she sidesteps reports of a much wilder night out four days prior with Scott Disick and older sister Khloé Kardashian Odom at Vignette Lounge, a 21-and-over sex-themed club in Los Angeles.
Photos show the youngest of the Jenner clan leaving the raunchy nightclub in the wee hours of the morning looking out of sorts.
At the time, the girls’ mother, Kris Jenner, said her daughters did not know they were at an adults-only venue and did not use fake IDs to enter the club.
Finishing off her rant, Kylie doled out advice to her young fans: “To all the young girls out there just like me, carry yourself with class and dignity and don’t let ANYONE determine your future,” she tweeted. - via PEOPLE.
