The Kardashian family just seems to be a breeding ground for all sorts of serious issues. With a gaggle of girls that take turns being obsessed with their weight it was only a matter of time before one of them (at least) would admit to, if not an eating disorder, then at the very least a disordered way of eating. Kylie Jenner took to her Twitter account yesterday to post and happened to let it drop that she hadn’t eaten in three days, supposedly because she was sick. Not too sick to have been tweeting the last few days without mentioning being sick- but you know, sick.
The whole point of mentioning it was because Kylie was thrilled to be eating and was enjoying a binge of a turkey sandwich, banana pancakes and bacon. Maybe she really had been sick and once the feeling had subsided then she was starving, hey, we’ve all been there. Or maybe it’s a glimpse into what really goes on with Kylie and her sisters. The power to not just be thin, but to be skinny in Hollywood is huge and a lot of these stars resort to desperate measures, such as not eating for days, in order to fit into their wardrobe for work.
Momager Kris Jenner put Kylie to work early as a model and so the pressure is definitely on this 15-year old. Eating disorders are usually less about food and more about the need to grab control of your life. I could easily see any of the girls in this family grasping to control whatever possible and food- or lack of it might be an easy battle for them.
Do you think Kylie is showing signs of disordered eating patterns or is her tell-tale “sick” exscuse legit? Tell us in the comments below!
