Are Kylie and Kendall Jenner Using Their Boyfriends to Get Famous? (UPDATE: Kylie Responds!)

UPDATE: If you had a feeling that Kylie Jenner might have dated rumored boyfriend Jaden Smith to raise her profile, think again.

Kylie has responded on Twitter to a report that Kris Jenner encourages daughters Kylie and Kendall Jenner to date famous guys. "The fact that some people actually believe I would waste my time dating someone as a publicity stunt," Kylie tweets on January 12. Take that, haters!

So do you think this erases any possibility that this rumor is true?

Original story (1/10/2014): Kris Jenner may be one fierce momager, but is she ruthless enough to convince her youngest daughters to date for fame?

That’s what a source for HollywoodLife is claiming, alleging that Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s relationships with Harry Styles and Jaden Smith were concocted to get the teens publicity.

“[Kendall and Kylie's boyfriends] need to be famous and in the current limelight,” says the insider.

“They must be a big deal to get the sisters the media they thrive on, and that is why Harry Styles was a set up at first. Its all about the Kardashian brand, and Kendall and Kylie have bought into it and use relationships as career builders more than anything else. This was one major issue when it came to Kris and Bruce’s marriage — Bruce wanted them to have a more normal life but he is outnumbered, and they want to be like Kim and will do anything Kris says to make it happen. Its like they are robots.”

While rumors have swirled lately about some of Harry’s high-profile relationships — including his tumultuous romance with Taylor Swift — being no more than publicity stunts, it seems unlikely that Kendall is dating Jaden solely for the fame, considering her recent denials that the two are anything other than pals.

Do you think that Kylie and Kendall are using their relationships to boost their celebrity?
