Kim Kardashian West has spoken out to defend her half sister Kylie Jenner's decision to have lip fillers, claiming she's been unhappy with her appearance since she was 10 years old.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star has spoken out in defence of her half-sister following the 17-year-old beauty's confession earlier this month that she has had lip fillers.
Kim said: "I saw how for so many years she was so insecure about it. I mean, at 10 years old, she would say to me, 'How come my lips aren't big like you guys'?' And I would see this insecurity...
"For me, I gave her advice and I still stand by that advice. I think it changed her confidence so much."
The 34-year-old beauty - who has 23-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - insists that despite undergoing the cosmetic procedure, Kylie has no plans to have any more surgery.
She told Access Hollywood: "I think there are limits and there are boundaries, for sure. I think that you have to know the difference. She did something that made her feel better about herself and that's kind of where you have to draw the line, and she knows that ... she doesn't have a desire to do anything else.
"I'm totally okay with that because I know that's where it stops for her."
Kim also rubbished claims Kylie is too busy partying with her pals to attend school after she received criticism on social media.
She added: "She talks about this all the time herself - she's always with her friends and having fun and people would question, 'Are you going to school?' She goes to school. She's home-schooled. She has a year left. She goes to school every single day."
Kim made the first move after divorce
Kim Kardashian West has revealed she pursued rapper Kanye West after her divorce from basketball player Kris Humphries because she always knew there was a "spark" between them.
The 34-year-old star split from the basketball player following just 72 days of marriage in October 2011, and was surprised the rapper didn't get in touch as soon as he heard about the divorce because there was always a "spark" between them.
She said: "When I first met [Kanye], we worked on a project together and there was definitely a spark, but we were in other relationships and we kept our distance.
"We stayed in touch here and there and then when he wasn't in relationships, you know, it's just our timing would always not really coincide.
"I think it was six months after I was newly single in like 2012, I was like why not? Like, what am I waiting for?"
However, the reality TV star tracked the down the 'Power' hitmaker - who she wed last year - and admitted "the magic happened" as soon as they saw reconnected.
She explained: "I thought he was going to call me as soon as he knew that I was single again.
"He didn't, and so I called him and I said, 'Hello? I thought you were at least going to call me and say 'I told you so,' something?' And then - he's always been a good friend to me, like, we've always been there for each other - then he invited me to a fashion show of his in Paris and I went, and then the magic happened."
The raven-haired beauty - who has 23-month-old daughter North with the musician - added the couple are still trying to have another baby, after previously revealing their difficulties to conceive.
Speaking about the matter, she told 'Access Hollywood': "We're just hoping that it's sooner than later."
Paris Hilton 'incredibly proud' of Kim
Paris Hilton - who has never married or had children - has insisted that she is "happy" for her 34-year-old reality TV star friend, who she grew up with, despite Kim arguably eclipsing her in terms of fame, since starring on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', marrying Kanye West and giving birth to North.
The 34-year-old socialite - who has never married or had children - has insisted that she is "happy" for her 34-year-old reality TV star friend, who she grew up with, despite Kim arguably eclipsing her in terms of fame, since starring on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians', marrying Kanye West and giving birth to North.
Paris told the Sunday Times newspaper: "Kim and I have been friends since we were little girls. I'm so happy for her. She has a beautiful family. She's doing incredibly well. I'm so incredibly proud of her. We're both killing it."
The 'Simple Life' star has previously said she believes the two of them share the same work ethic and that's why they've both been successful. They used to party together a lot and are still friends, and Paris recognises many of the traits she has in her pal.
She recently said: "Kim Kardashian always had a great work ethic like me. I'm very determined in life. Being successful really fulfils me. I work hard. I'm a good person with a good heart. That's why I've been in this business for so long, and that's why my product lines do so well."
Which 'Miss' Jenner stealing Kim's clothes
Bruce Jenner has confessed he stole one of his step daughter Kim Kardashian West's outfits during a clip from the second part of E!'s 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce' special.
Bruce Jenner has confessed to stealing Kim Kardashian West's clothes.
The 65-year-old star receives fashion advice from his stepdaughter in part two of E!'s 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians: About Bruce' special - in which he opens up about his decision to transition to a woman - and admits he's snuck garments out of her wardrobe in the past.
In the first clip of the show Kim opens her cupboard and tells her stepfather - who is now separated from her mother Kris Jenner - about her love of turtlenecks.
Bruce then admits that he has a confession to make, to which the 34-year-old beauty replies: "You copy my outfits?"
The former Olympian responds, saying: "No, I stole your outfit!"
The two-part special focuses on how Bruce's family - which also includes Kim's sisters Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, her half sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner and his children Brody, Burt, Casey and Brandon from his previous marriages - are coming to terms with his life changing decision.
The first instalment saw Bruce reveal to his family that he is planning to undergo full gender reassignment surgery.
His confession came after Kim claimed she first saw him in a dress 12 years ago but ran off because she didn't want him to know she'd seen.
Kylie Jenner's weight gain
Kylie Jenner has admitted she's gained weight in a bid to stop online bullies commenting on her curvier figure.
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star shared a photo of herself in a revealing black swimsuit on her Instagram account earlier today which left very little to the imagination.
She captioned the image: "behind the scenes. (yes I gained weight there I said it so u don't have too) :). (sic)"
However, the 17-year-old star quickly changed her mind about the admission and edited the caption to simply read: "behind the scenes."
Kylie's decision to be open about her figure comes just a couple of weeks after Selena Gomez fell victim to online bullies who taunted her about her alleged weight gain after she posted a picture of herself in a similar revealing swimsuit online.
The 22-year-old beauty was quick to slam her critics and hit back at one "disgusting" Instagram user for urging her to "work out" and "please stop eating junk food."
The 'Come & Get It' hitmaker responded: "IM IN the business and I could care less about what 'they' or you said I should look like. I don't need to do anything other than love myself, take care of my work, fans, family and friends...And I do work out. It's not your place to tell anyone what they should or should not do."
What Kylie hates about Kendall
Kylie Jenner reportedly 'hates' living in her sister, fashion model Kendall Jenner's shadow and wants to distance herself from her older sibling so she can do her 'own thing'.
The 17-year-old reality TV star reportedly finds it frustrating that her 19-year-old sister - who is a successful fashion model - is doing so well.
Although the brunette beauty recently launched her own hair extension line, she still feels envious of Kendall - with whom she starred on 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' - and just wants to do her "own thing".
A source told RadarOnline.com: "Kylie is always going to be playing second fiddle, and she absolutely hates it."

The pair are said to have clashed while launching their new range of summer clothing for PacSun and Kylie is desperate to make herself a name in her own right, away from her famous family.
The insider added: "Kylie is just trying to do her own thing right now and develop a brand for herself that will outlast Kendall's minute of fame."

Meanwhile, Kylie's newly enlarged lips have been keeping her in the spot light in recent weeks after she confessed to having temporary fillers to plump up her pout.
Khloe 'jealous' of Kylie Jenner
Khloe Kardashian is reportedly jealous of Kylie Jenner's plump pout and has decided to increase the size of her own lips to compete with her 17-year-old sister.
The reality TV star, 30, is said to be envious of her 17-year-old sister's plump pout and has been trying to emulate her look.
While Kylie recently confessed to having lip fillers to increase the size of her lips, Khloe is also said to have tried out the same "temporary" procedure.
A source told Hollywoodlife.com: "It does make her a little jealous. Khloe has been getting fillers in her face and in her lips for a while. She just does the bare minimum because she doesn't want to look like she's had anything done.
"The last time she went, she got a little extra filler in her lips, way more than she normally does, and that's totally because of Kylie! She sees how great Kylie looks and how much attention she's getting from guys, and she wants that, too."
Meanwhile, the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star has openly supported her younger sibling's decision and previously urged her to come clean about undergoing the treatment.
Speaking on an episode of the E! series, she said: "Kylie decided to plump her lips and I don't think there is anything wrong with that. I think if you've done something though, it is right to cop up to it. If you avoid the question you're gonna look like a liar."
Kylie previously urged her fans not to copy her look after the #KylieJennerChallenge started trending on Twitter, prompting users to go to extreme lengths to mimic her full lips.
After photographs of fans with severely swollen mouths began to flood the site, she tweeted: "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."
Kanye, Kim set to renew wedding vows
Kanye West and Kim Kardashian West are set to renew their wedding vows on top of the Eiffel Tower for their first wedding anniversary.
The 'New Slaves' hitmaker, who married the reality TV star in a lavish ceremony in Florence, Italy on May 24, 2014, is planning to surprise his 34-year-old wife with a special ceremony to celebrate their one year anniversary at the world famous tourist attraction in Paris.
A source close to the 37-year-old rapper, who has 22-month-old daughter North with the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star, claims he has rented out the entire French landmark for the festivities, which will take place following the couple's appearance at the Cannes Film Festival next week.
The insider also told Us Weekly magazine that after they renew their vows, the pair will enjoy a romantic meal in the lavish 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant, which Kanye has also booked for the private event.
Kim - who previously dismissed the idea of renewing their vows this year - recently admitted she wouldn't be surprised if Kanye had "something up his sleeve" for their anniversary.
She said: "I feel like May is a really busy month for us so I think we just want to hang out and relax. Unless he has something planned, he always has something up his sleeve, he always has something planned, so I don't put it past him to do something really special.
"They say that the first year and everything in marriage is the hardest, and I'm like, 'If this is the hardest, then life is going to be really good - because it's just not hard.' "
Kim's £13k Met Gala secret
Kim Kardashian West reportedly spent £13,000 on body beauty treatments ahead of the Met Gala, which she attended with her husband Kanye West last week.
The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star - who has 22-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - was determined to look her very best for the prestigious New York event last week and made daily visits to her dermatologist in Beverley Hills in the days leading up the bash - famous for the red carpet fashion it attracts.
A source said: "Kim was determined to steal the show with her body. She splashed out almost £13,000 on cellulite-busting treatments, bottom-boosting injections and facials.
"She usually visits her dermatologist Dr. Harold Lancer every couple of weeks, but in the run-up to the Met Gala she was going daily. She had a £600 enzyme facial, a £500 chemical peel, intensive collagen facials setting her back £1,000 and she spent over £1,300 on fillers and injectables.
"That was all in addition to the last-minute bum-boosting injections performed by her plastic surgeon at £380 a go, cellulite-busting infra-red treatments and a £3,235 course of body contouring treatments to firm up her bottom. It added up to a whopping £13k!"
Kim donned a sheer beaded white Roberto Cavalli gown for the event but even had that customised to turn more heads.
The insider explained: "Kim was intent on outshining everyone at the Met Ball.
"She even instructed her designer to remove some of the diamantes off her dress so she could bare as much flesh as possible."
Kim takes Spanx-ing everyday
Kim Kardashian West "won't leave the house" without Spanx because she feels "insecure" after gaining 20lbs.
The 34-year-old beauty - who has 22-month-old daughter North with husband Kanye West - is so insecure about her recent weight gain, she can't bare to be seen without control underwear.
Speaking on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians', she said: "Everybody thinks, 'She got her butt done and her hips done' and all this stuff.
"I'm like, 'No, I'm legit 20 pounds heavier.'
"I'm so insecure lately. Seriously, just with my weight. I cannot leave the house without Spanx."
Kim's weight gain could be attributed to her love of fast food, as earlier in the episode she told her sisters a "life-changing" event had taken place - an In-n-Out Burger had opened in her neighbourhood.
And she later showed her older sister Kourtney Kardashian some pictures from a nude photo shoot she had taken part in for her website earlier that day.
She laughed: "We went to KFC on the way there." Can you believe it?"
However, Kim told her stunned sibling she only ate the chicken.
She added: "I didn't eat the potatoes or anything like that."
Shocked Kourtney quipped: "Just a fried, greasy bucket of chicken!"
And it seems her calorific craving didn't end there that day.
Kim admitted: "And then we went to In-N-Out on the way home."
