A “rivalry” between Kylie and Kendall Jenner has not “exploded,” contrary to a claim from a website that frequently pits the Kardashian-Jenner sisters against each other. Gossip Cop can bust this latest untrue feud narrative. There is substantial proof the Jenner siblings remain close and support one another.

But according to RadarOnline, Kylie and Kendall have “taken their sibling rivalry to a whole new level.” How so? The site claims “the two mean girls can’t even get through the day without dissing each other.” A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “They fight over friendships, boyfriends, their dad and who’s more successful.” Kendall is said to be envious of Kylie’s career, with the untraceable source contending, “She doesn’t like that her little sis is so rich off of makeup and gets more attention.”

It’s further alleged “the tension between the two only heated up after Kendall was spotted on a double date” with Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson. For the record, this double date with Ben Simmons took place more than a month ago. Now weeks later, the blog wants readers to believe Kendall and Kylie are at odds as a result of the outing, because they supposedly don’t agree on forgiving Thompson for cheating on Kardashian.

And “when it comes to their own love lives, Kylie throws her strong relationship with Travis Scott, and their baby girl Stormi, right in Kendall’s face,” maintains the outlet. Claims the alleged tipster, “Kylie loves to show Kendall how popular she is and what a great boyfriend and life she has.” Meanwhile, Kendall “just wants Kylie to leave her alone,” asserts the site, which concludes with its unnamed “source” declaring, “If they weren’t sisters, they probably wouldn’t even be friends.”

That last comment is likely cribbed from a statement Kylie made about their relationship during filming of “Life of Kylie” last year. “Kendall and I, I don’t think we’d be friends if we weren’t sisters,” the younger Jenner confessed. But having differences in personality doesn’t mean there is a “rivalry” between them. And there are a number of clear falsehoods in this tale.

For example, the questionable “insider” claims, “Kendall gets mad when Kylie tries to steal her friends from her,” but in May, Kendall revealed the opposite is true, admitting she “stole” Hailey Baldwin from Kylie. And as opposed to being driven apart by Kylie’s personal life, it seems their relationship has only become stronger, with Kendall telling People only days ago about the bond she shares with Stormi. “I don’t know if it’s that Kylie is my little sister,” she shared, “but I was hanging out with her the other day at lunch, and we were just sitting, and [Stormi] was just so comfortable with me, and it made me so happy.”

Kendall also said about Kylie in her April cover story for Vogue, “To see my best friend growing up have a baby? It’s already made us even closer.” The affection goes both ways. Exactly two weeks ago, Kylie posted on Instagram new photos she took with Kendall, writing in the caption, “love u sister @kendalljenner.” Gossip Cop also pointed out these snapshots earlier this month, when the website’s sister publication, OK!, tried to get readers to believe Kendall and Kylie were no longer close. That storyline was provably false, just like this new one. There was also clear evidence to disprove RadarOnline’s recent tale about Kim Kardashian supposedly being jealous of Kylie’s Forbes cover.

Conclusion: RadarOnline and other gossip publications often peddle feud stories about the Kardashian-Jenners, but such storylines are usually provably wrong. In this case, the site maintains a “rivalry” between the Jenner sisters has “exploded,” but recent comments from Kendall and Kylie themselves show they are still closely connected and on good terms. This primary sourcing from the siblings is far more valuable and trustworthy than the single anonymous “insider” used by the blog. For these reasons, Gossip Cop is rating this story a zero on our fact-or-fiction meter.
