Kardashian Family Finances: Why Kris Jenner Cut Off Daughter Kylie as a Teen

At just 17, Kylie Jenner is definitely keeping up with her adult siblings.

Jenner recently told InStyle U.K. that her mom, Kris Jenner, “cut me off financially three years ago, so I pay for everything,” but a source tells PEOPLE, “getting cut off is more of a technicality,” since Kris still provides the basic household necessities.

“She had a refrigerator full of food and all the luxuries that come with [living with] Mom but unless it was a gift, if she wanted a new Chanel bag, Kylie was the one paying for it,” a source says about the self-reliant teen.

The source continues, “It’s not like she wasn’t getting anything from her mom while living at home.”

From her clothing line collaborations with model sister Kendall Jenner at Topshop and PacSun, to her salary from Keeping Up with the Kardashians and her solo line of clip-in hair extensions, the teen seems to have a steady flow of income.

“Kylie was paying her own credit card bills, but she was of course perfectly set up to be successful,” says the source.

The teen also reportedly bought her own $2.7 million, 4,900-square-foot home in Calabasas, California, earlier this year and plans to move into it in August (when she turns 18).

But for now she is still considered a minor, so “[Kris] does her due diligence to make sure she knows what’s being spent and ensures things don’t get out of control,” says the source.
