Here’s Why Kim Kardashian is Jealous of Kylie Jenner

Sisterly rivalry is a real thing, even for celebrities. Actually, celebrity sisters might be the most jealous types of sisters of all. And the Kardashian family? They have enough drama to go around.

In total, there are three Kardashian sisters and two Jenner sisters who all consider each other family. Though the five women have different fathers, they all have a few things in common: Fame. Fortune. Beauty. And success. But who do they have to thank for all the publicity? Kim, of course. And she’s not happy when people forget it.

How did the Kardashians become famous?

Kim Kardashian first came into the spotlight back in 2003 when sex tape of her with rapper Ray J went public. At the time, aspiring socialite Kim was already hanging out with Paris Hilton and other A-listers. But it was the sex tape that really launched her career.

In a few years, Kim Kardashian was the subject of one of the most popular and longest running reality shows of all time. But one thing she didn’t anticipate? Her younger sister would one day steal her thunder.

The Kardashian/Jenner tribe members all have different talents and aspirations. But none of them would probably be quite as successful without the help of Kim Kardashian, the one who started it all. Without her, there would be no Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality show and all the status that came as a direct result of the show.

Kylie Jenner has built a mini empire of her own and these days has more Instagram followers and more net worth than Kim does. That’s why Kim is jealous – her younger sister, who is less experienced, is outshining Kim’s star.

As one source revealed to Life & Style: “[Kim is] privately jealous over Kylie’s success because she always thought she’d be the first Kardashian billionaire. There’s a real rivalry between the Kardashian girls.”

When KUWTK first aired, Kylie was young and Kim was the undeniable star. But now Kylie is proving her worth and it’s making Kim feel all kinds of uncomfortable. Kylie’s makeup venture, Kylie Cosmetics, is well on track to becoming a billion-dollar company.

Is Kim mad at Kylie?

You know what they say – don’t get mad, get even. That’s probably what prompted Kim Kardashian West to launch a cosmetics company of her own, KKW Beauty. Still, even though her makeup line is doing well, it’s nowhere near as successful as Kylie Jenner’s.

Still, even if Kim Kardashian harbors jealousy against her sister, the family has proven time and time again that they won’t let anything come between them. Like when Kylie Jenner’s best friend, Jordyn Woods got caught cheating with Khloe Karadashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson. Kylie chose her sister over her friend seemingly without hesitation. Even if Kim is envious of Kylie’s success, there’s little doubt that she would do the same for her sister.

After all, family is forever. Makeup is just temporary.
