Much like her famous family members, Kendall Jenner is a prolific tweeter with plenty of followers, but it looks like some of her online fanbase may not be who they seem.

The 18-year-old model currently has a staggering 7.98 million followers on Twitter, but it seems as though Kendall may have come by some of them through less-than-traditional methods — in other words, homegirl paid for her friends.

In Touch reports that, after running Kendall’s online pals through a service that weeds out fake followers, it turns out that over half of her online devotees are either fake accounts or have been deactivated.

“Kendall and her sisters have bought a good amount of their followers,” claims a source close to the family.

So what’s the motivation behind Kendall acquiring paid-for friends? Proving she is truly Kris Jenner’s child, it seems that she’s all about the money.

A source claims that Kendall can make up to $1,000 per sponsored tweet, and with more followers come bigger rewards.

While the practice may seem shady, Kendall’s not the only member of her family who’s been accused of having fake followers. Forbes claims that Kendall’s big sister, Kim Kardashian, may be faking nearly half of her online fans.

Do you believe that Kendall is buying her followers?
