Here’s How Kylie Jenner Really Got That Scar On Her Leg
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott held nothing back in their 2018 interview with GQ. Not only was this their first joint interview, but they posed for some intimate photos together, too. On the magazine’s cover for the August issue, Jenner put her body on display — including a pretty large scar on her left leg.
While the internet went abuzz over her scar thanks to the photo, she’s actually been quite vocal about it in the past. Way back in 2011, in an interview with Celebuzz, she told the story about how she got the scar.
“When I was about 5, my sister and I were playing hide-and-seek and I hid inside this really tall enclosed gate,” Jenner said. “After a while when my sister didn’t find me I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out but it just tore through my whole leg. It’s smaller now though because I grew!”
The incident sounds like a traumatic experience for anyone, let alone a 5-year-old. Jenner, however, has made it clear that she’s proud of her scar. In fact, she’s even taken to Instagram to show it off, claiming, “I love my scar.”
Along with their magazine cover story, Jenner and Scott shot a video for GQ. In the video, Jenner asked Scott a series of questions about herself, her family, and their daughter, Stormi. Scott may have flubbed on a few questions, but one he answered without hesitation involved her scar.
“What’s the biggest scar on my body?,” Jenner asked. Scott replied immediately, “The biggest scar? On your leg.” As a bonus question, Jenner added, “Which leg?” Scott responded, “Left.” Jenner looked impressed, pointing out, “He really knows my body.”
We learned more intimate details about the couple in their magazine interview — including the surreal way they started dating. “Coachella was one of the stops on his tour,” Jenner recalled. “So he said, ‘I’m going back on tour — what do we want to do about this?’ Because we obviously liked each other. And I was like, ‘I guess I’m going with you,’ […] I really jumped on the bus. And then we rode off into the sunset. I did the whole tour with him.”
You may notice that in their GQ photoshoot, Jenner still appears to have her lip fillers. She’s since had them removed, as she confirmed in an Instagram photo on July 8, 2018. Posing with her friend, Anastasia Karanikolaou, Jenner’s lips look noticeably smaller in the social media post.
Fans instantly saw the difference, with one follower pointing out that she looks like the “old Kylie.” Jenner replied, writing, “I got rid of all my filler,” which explains her younger, more natural looking pout.
She had her lip filler injections for about three years, first confirming the rumors in 2015. She admitted on an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, “I have temporary lip fillers, it’s just an insecurity of mine and it’s what I wanted to do.”
“I’m just not ready to talk to reporters about my lips yet because everyone always picks us apart,” she noted. “I want to admit to the lips, but people are so quick to judge me on everything, so I might have tiptoed around the truth, but I didn’t lie.”
