Kylie Jenner: I've been bullied since I was nine

Kylie Jenner claims she's been bullied since the age of nine.

The 17-year-old star took to her Snapchat yesterday (17.06.15) to reveal to her millions of followers that she has faced cruel taunts since she started appearing on the E! reality show 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' in 2007 and sometimes feels as if "the whole world" is against her.

In the video posted on the picture sharing app, she said: "It's kind of crazy I have four million people watch my Snapchats. Half of you guys think I'm weird, and the other half think I'm funny.

"But I've been bullied since I've been nine. From the whole world, it feels like sometimes... and I think that I've done a really great job in handling all this."

The raven haired beauty insisted she wasn't looking for any sympathy with the emotional message and was simply providing support to any of her followers who have also fallen victim to bullies.

She explained: "There are bullies everywhere. So, this was just a little like Snapchat, to tell whoever with their own bullies, that the only opinion that ever really matters is yours and to never change.

"This isn't a pity party though, don't get it twisted. This is for those with bullies out there to know that you're not alone... Spread love. Love y'all."

Kylie has faced criticism in recent months over her noticeably plumper pout and was forced to confess to having had temporary lip fillers to put an end to rumours.

She was also forced to speak out after the #KylieJennerChallenge went viral and saw her fans attempt to mimic her full-lipped look by placing their mouths in a cup and sucking out the air which caused their lips to swell.

Following backlash over the potentially dangerous craze, she wrote on her Twitter account: "I'm not here to try & encourage people/young girls to look like me or to think this is the way they should look.

"I want to encourage people/young girls like me to be YOURSELF & not be afraid to experiment w your look. (sic)"
