Being rich, famous, and adored by millions of fans sounds like a dream for most teenage girls, but for Kylie Jenner, her celebrity status comes with an additional perk.
The 16-year-old reality star stopped by Ryan Seacrest’s radio show on November 12 and revealed one of the many benefits of being a worldwide celebrity: having too much on her plate to spend any real time in her homeschool classroom.
When Ryan asked the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star how much time she spends learning the basics of any high school education — a little English, math, history, and science — Kylie revealed she’s doing a little less than half of what a regular kids do in a typical day.
“I do like three to four [hours],” Kylie tells Ryan. “[Then] I usually work. I’m pretty busy all day.”
A source for RadarOnline.com claims that Kylie and her big sister, Kendall, were previously enrolled in a private school near their Calabasas home, but, with their reality careers taking off, began to miss too much school and were pulled out, much to the chagrin of their father, Bruce.
“[Kylie and Kendall] had been attending a very elite private school until last year,” says the Radar source. “The girls were constantly missing school because of business commitments including promotional appearances, and photo shoots. Bruce was absolutely adamant that the girls not drop out of school in order to be home schooled.”
Despite his objections, it looks like Bruce didn’t get his way. The girls are now more involved in the family business than ever, appearing on an increasing number of episodes of KUWTK and with multiple clothing and accessories lines to their increasingly famous names.
