I feel like some element of this story is meant to be surprising, but it isn’t at all. However, it is “news” as far as celebrity gossip goes, so here we are. Kim Kardashian got famous for having a sex tape “leak” (i.e. sold by Kris Jenner to the highest bidder), so I doubt there’ll be any amount of shock when you hear that she actually lost her virginity at 14 to Michael Jackson‘s nephew and 3T member TJ Jackson.
If that wasn’t enough for you, Kris actually knew her barely teenage daughter was ready to start having sex, so she put her on birth control at 14 and told her to go for it. Sure, we can argue that Kris was just teaching Kim to be safe and knew she couldn’t stop her, and perhaps that’s true. Maybe putting your 14-year-old on birth control is the “responsible” thing to do, but because it’s coming from this family, it all just seems incredibly creepy. How young is too young to be pimped out by your mom for whatever fame you can grab? Because this is coming from the woman who tried to say she was so upset when her 17-year-old got a boob job/lip injections/etc, but she was fine with her 14-year-old having sex. Something just doesn’t match up.
From The Mirror:
A new book, Kim by Sean Smith, has claimed Kim first had sex with Michael Jackson’s nephew TJ.
The book details her young romance with the star throughout her high school years before she was to cross paths with RJ, Reggie Bush, Kris Humphries and her now husband Kanye West.
Kim has opened up about losing her virginity in the past and said she sought advice from her mother Kris Jenner before her first time.
“When I did want to have sex the first time I was almost 15,” she said.”
Explaining how she approached her mum, she continued: “I was like, ‘I think I’m going to, or I want to,’ and she was like, ‘OK, so this is what we’re gonna do, we’re gonna put you on birth control,’ and she was like, really open and honest with me.”
Yeah, see, I’m torn. I can’t tell someone how to parent, and again, in a way Kris was being responsible by speaking frankly with her kids about sex. At the same time, Kris is just way too desperate, creepy, and calculated, so nothing she’s ever done has ever felt like anything but something to get her more attention and fame (or get it for her daughters, which she could then live through vicariously). Maybe I have it wrong, but this whole thing is just weird.
