Over the weekend, Kris Jenner shared a cryptic video of her daughter Kendall Jenner on Instagram, stating that the 22-year old model would be sharing her "most raw story" and that we should "be prepared to be moved."
In the video, Kendall shares, "When I was 14, I couldn't reach as many people as I can now. Now that I'm 22 and I have this whole thing behind me I can speak to so many people and just be, like, I can help you, and it's ok. I experience it, I'm very normal and, like, I understand you. Like, I can connect with you. I'm gonna try and help."Immediately following Kris's announcement that Kendall would be making a big reveal Sunday night on Twitter, theories began circulating online. Some fans speculated that Kendall would be opening up about her sexuality or anxiety,
while others were worried she might reveal something extremely tragic.
@KendallJenner @PerezHilton @KimKardashian @kourtneykardash @khloekardashian @KylieJenner Bulimia? Anorexia? Molested? Or any illness she has or is in the process of overcoming. I don’t think it has to do with her sexuality at all.— Carissa (@Dangerissa) January 6, 2019
But on Sunday night, before the 2019 Golden Globes aired, the world finally found out Kendall's "most raw story," and it was not at all what we were expecting. Kendall is the new face of Proactiv, a brand of skin-care products.In the ad, Kendall recalls attending the 2018 Golden Globes, in which she received backlash on social media for her chin acne. "Went through the night, felt great. Then I remember going online and seeing all the horrible things people were saying about me and my skin. I felt so good that I completely forgot that I had bad skin," shared Kendall. "If you have acne, there's a feeling that you'll never get out of it, but there definitely is an ending and there definitely is a solution for you. For me, I can honestly say, that the magic was Proactiv. It's a huge deal that I'm partnering with Proactiv." While Kendall said it was a huge deal partnering with the brand, fans didn't seem to agree, as they shared on Twitter:
