July 29, 2010 01:00 PM by Nancy Floyd


The Internet was abuzz last week as racy photos of 14-year old aspiring model Kendall Jenner hit the web. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is starting a career in modeling and among her first jobs was a sexy bikini photo shoot on the beach. Although her older sisters, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, praised their little sis for her stunning photos, critics have raised concerns over whether or not Kendall Jenner is too young to pose in such provocative poses and skimpy clothing. The 14-year old model and her agent address critics about the pics…

Kendall Jenner is finally stepping out of the shadows of famous big sisters, Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe Kardashian, by starting her own modeling career. The 14-year old star of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was recently photographed wearing a skimpy bikini during a beach photo shoot. The pics hit the web and have critics raising concerns about such a young girl posing so provocatively.

Kendall Jenner assures fans that it was never her goal to appear sexy or suggestive in the pics. “Going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy,” she says. “It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear. I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer–Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”

Kendall Jenner goes on to say that she’s thrilled to be starting a career in modeling and has her entire family’s support and blessing.“I am excited to be working as a model, doing what I love to do,” she says. “My entire family was very supportive, though my dad [Bruce Jenner] was a bit concerned at first, he knows that I am responsible enough that I wouldn’t do anything I wasn’t ready to do, or didn’t want to do.”

Luc Brinker, Kendall Jenner’s agent at Wilhemina Modeling Agency, defends his client to critics as well.  “Kendall exudes such a high level of confidence and know-how for her age,” he says. “I’m sure that it comes from having such a great family that gives her endless support and is constantly encouraging her to shine. I think it’s the most important thing that a young models can have.”

    san thought we might have been speaking with Kim kardashian on Christmas Eve at the Burger King in Atlanta’s airport last year. Could that be? Or perhaps a sister? She (whoever it was).was very nice and sociable with us. Thank you for helping us to figure this out!
