The Real Reason Kylie Jenner Took All of Her Instagram Photos of Stormi Down (and What She’s Adding to Social Media Instead)
Kylie Jenner is one of the more mysterious ladies of the Kylie/Jenner clan thanks to her hot-and-cold relationship with social media. One minute, we’re getting tons of photos of her and baby Stormi Webster. And the next, the highly-coveted Instagram and Twitter posts of her child are gone.
Now, Kylie says she’s done sharing photos on social media of her child. Here’s why we won’t be seeing Stormi for awhile (page 6) and what we’re getting a lot more posts of instead (page 7).
1. Kylie has been secretive with Stormi from the beginning
Kylie’s strategically baggy clothes and absence from the camera were clues she was with child. But until the last few weeks of her pregnancy, most of us couldn’t know for sure. Once Stormi was born, she even released a statement about why she kept it all a secret.
Others were in on keeping the secret too, of course. Elle explains the father’s child, Travis Scott, was good at keeping it all under wraps, as was Kylie’s entire family, her personal assistant, and her best friend.

2. There were plenty of rumors that Stormi wasn’t Travis Scott’s
Having a baby while in the public eye is no easy feat. Making it even more difficult, Kylie Jenner was accused by many of lying about who Stormi’s father really was.
Seventeen explains many eagle-eyed fans thought newborn Stormi looked like Kylie’s bodyguard, Tim Chung. And even before that, many believed Tyga, Kylie’s ex, was the real father. Both Tim Chung and Tyga came forward with statements asking fans to stop spreading false rumors, however. And we’re sure this had some negative impact on Kylie, too.

3. She’s been scrutinized for partying without her newborn on multiple occasions
After Stormi’s birth, Kylie wasn’t scared of showing off her lifestyle — which included going to Coachella, of course. But her partying ways didn’t go unnoticed (or uncommented on). Daily Mail Online reports Kylie attended Coachella in April 2018 without Stormi. And it caused a flurry of activity on social media from angry fans.
As one woman commented, “If you wanted to party don’t get pregnant.” And another angry Twitter user wrote, “Kylie Jenner should be everyone’s example of learning how to use protection.”

4. Kylie’s strict diet also raised eyebrows
Much to the dismay of the public, Kylie follows an incredibly restrictive diet to shed excess pounds. The Sun reports Kylie was eating just 1,000 calories a day in an attempt to shed what she gained during her pregnancy. And she was even seen wearing a waist trainer just weeks after giving birth, which doctor Carol Cooper told the publication was unhealthy.
Perhaps all the shame for her rapid post-baby weight loss is also what set her off to delete pics of Stormi, too.

5. She recently said she wants to protect her daughter’s privacy
Fans loved their updates of baby Stormi, but it looks like we’ll no longer get to peek into Kylie’s life so intimately. Cosmopolitan reports Kylie shared this photo of herself on Instagram, but one fan noticed she cropped the baby from it. “Yeah I cut my baby out,” Kylie commented to the fan. “I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now.”
Kylie is reportedly trying to further protect Stormi’s privacy by hiding her face from social media.
Next: Here’s why Kylie’s suddenly protecting Stormi more thoroughly.
6. The real reason: Kylie’s reportedly received kidnapping threats
There’s a reason for Kylie’s sudden protection of Stormi. One insider allegedly told The Sun, “There have been an increasing number of trolls on social media calling Stormi ugly, and throwing out really horrible insults.” The insider added, “It’s been really upsetting for Kylie, because also some of the comments are direct threats to kidnap her.”
Apparently, Kylie’s received more hate than usual lately. And the threats combined with the negativity have caused her to pull Stormi from the limelight.
Next: Here’s what we can expect now that Stormi’s off social media.
7. Now, we’re getting more photos than ever of her post-baby body
What can we expect now that Stormi’s officially out of the spotlight? It looks like all eyes will be back on Kylie and her curves. On June 8, she posted a full-body shot showing off her toned midriff. And days before that, she wasn’t too camera shy, either.
Perhaps Kylie is trying to soften the blow of no more Stormi pics by flaunting her body instead. Either way, she’s certainly keeping to her current diet of organic proteins, no fried foods, and no carbs to keep her body flawless. And her personal training sessions five days a week certainly help, too.

8. Stormi will undoubtedly make a return to social media
Judging from how Kylie does things, we’ll likely see Stormi again. We can’t forget once her baby was born, she rolled out a mini pregnancy documentary to show the world what we’d all been itching to see for nine months. And once the hate on her social media accounts dies down, we’re sure the baby pics will return.
Perhaps if Kylie doesn’t add photos, her boyfriend, Travis Scott, will. He has a photo of Stormi’s face on his Instagram still — though it’s obscured by a Snapchat filter, of course.
