Kylie Jenner deleted all the photos of Stormi from her Instagram after receiving 'kidnap threats'
From taking contouring mainstream to "breaking the internet", the Kardashian-Jenner family are no strangers to controversy. Their latest venture, however, has been somewhat different. In the space of a year, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child via surrogate, Kylie Jenner had Stormi Webster, and back in April, Khloé Kardashian gave birth to True Thompson. Yes, it seems as if the Kardashian family's bid to repopulate planet Earth has proved largely successful.
However, this hasn't come without its fair share of problems. Kylie Jenner kept her pregnancy under wraps for the better part of a year, and news broke about Tristan Thompson's purported infidelity just days before Khloé Kardashian was due to give birth. Now, the Kylie Cosmetics founder has deleted all the photographs of 4-month-old Stormi from her Instagram account after allegedly receiving kidnap threats.
Since Kim Kardashian was tied up and held at gunpoint in her luxurious Paris apartment back in 2016, the Kardashian-Jenners have really stepped it up when it comes to security. Case in point: Kylie Jenner has decided to stop sharing pictures of her daughter's face on social media, and has deleted every snap of Stormi from her Instagram account.
"Yeah I cut my baby out. I'm not sharing photos of my girl right now," the 20-year-old asserted when she was criticised by her Instagram followers for cutting the 4-month-old out from a picture with her.
But she may have a very good reason for doing so. The beauty mogul, who has an estimated net worth of $50 million, has purportedly faced abuse from internet trolls, some of whom have even made kidnap threats.
An insider told People that Kylie partly made the decision after seeing "nasty" comments on pictures of her daughter. "Kylie felt so protective of her baby when she was pregnant. This is why she didn’t share any bump pictures while she was pregnant. After Stormi was born, Kylie was the proudest mom," the source disclosed.
"She couldn’t wait to show off Stormi to her fans. She posted pictures, because she was so excited to be a mom. Unfortunately, social media is a crazy place. People have been making nasty comments. Kylie is shocked and doesn’t want her daughter’s pictures to be a part of something negative. She might reconsider in the future, but for now, she won’t post any more photos of Stormi’s face."
As some internet trolls even made "kidnap threats", Kylie has reportedly amped up her security in recent weeks. "She hardly takes Stormi out in public but is now making sure that she's got protection at all times," another source corroborated.
This is not the first time that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has shied away from the spotlight. Kylie chose to keep her pregnancy under wraps, and only confirmed that she had been expecting after her daughter's birth.
"I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys," Kylie later asserted on Instagram. "My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how/ there was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned."
You do you, Kylie!
