Kylie Jenner steps up security after Stormi 'kidnap threats', removes daughter's pictures from social media
Kylie revealed on Sunday that she would not share any more photos of her daughter but did not say why she decided to do so
Kylie Jenner is no stranger to social media and, since the birth of her daughter Stormi whom she had with rapper Travis Scott, the reality TV star has been subjected to vile abuse and wild speculations.
Recently, Kylie made the decision to avoid posting any pictures of her daughter on social media and went on to delete all the pictures of Stormi from social media platforms.
The 20-year-old has now revealed that she had to resort to such extreme measures because she is terrified and has stepped up her security after she received 'kidnap threats', The Sun reported.
A source close to Kylie said, "There have been an increasing number of trolls on social media calling Stormi ugly, and throwing out really horrible insults. It’s been really upsetting for Kylie because also some of the comments are direct threats to kidnap her."
Some social media users have been blaming the 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star for putting her daughter in the limelight very early on.
"Some people have commented saying it’s all Kylie’s fault because she has exposed her by putting her on social media. The haters have always been there, but just getting way, way worse these last few weeks, calling out Kylie for being a bad mom," the source added.
"Kylie is terrified — she’s stepping up security. She hardly takes Stormi out in public but is now making sure that she's got protection at all times."
So far, Kylie has been sharing her journey of motherhood with her 109 million followers since her baby girl was born in the month of February.
When Kylie was pregnant with her daughter, she chose to keep herself out of the limelight as she was eager to focus on "the next chapter" of her life.
There was a lot of speculation around baby Stormi's birth and Kylie did not confirm the news of her pregnancy until she had given birth to her daughter.
At the time, Kylie took to Instagram to share with her followers, "I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress-free, and healthy way I knew how. There was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal I had planned."
"I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness," she continued.
Before Kylie had Stormi, she had previously said that she had planned to quit social media altogether when she becomes a mother, as reported by Elle UK. She also said that she would move out to a farm in Malibu Canyon and "live life" without her phone. But that clearly has not happened.
In the year 2015, she said, "Once I have a kid I'm not going to be on Instagram. You know, I'll probably delete my Instagram and just... I don't know, live life. I would love to have a family and build a home with a farm in Malibu Canyon and just have my kids and throw away my phone. Just really, like, live my life and not do this anymore."
On Sunday, Kylie revealed that she would not share any photos of her daughter. However, she did share a photo of herself with no makeup on and her baby's head visible in the corner of the picture. She uploaded the photograph along with the caption, "I spy with my little eye..."
Many fans questioned Kylie on why she was not sharing any more pictures of Stormi and one such fan commented, "She cut her baby out," to which she replied, "Yeah, I cut my baby out. I'm not sharing photos of my girl right now."
So, it looks like we won't be seeing little Stormi Webster for a while but, of course, we understand why the beauty mogul has chosen to keep her little girl off the web for a while.
Recently, Kylie was spotted with her older sister Kim and proved that they were certainly from the same gene pool. The reality TV stars flaunted their stunning curves in grey and black tops and skin-tight leggings for their South California outing. Both the sisters rocked retro-styled mirrored sunglasses along with their outfits.
