Kylie Jenner, 17, and her relationship with 25-year-old Tyga have been the subject of major criticism for several months, especially after both Amber Rose and Tyga’s ex, Blac Chyna, bashed Tyga for “robbing the cradle.” Throughout the drama, Jenner’s big sis, Khloe Kardashian, has been fiercely defending her sister’s honor. But now she’s taken it a step further and not only is she explaining why the relationship is normal, but explaining that she was once in Jenner’s shoes.

In a new interview with Complex magazine, for which the racy cover is drawing major attention, Kardashian talks about Jenner’s unorthodox life as a celebrity teen and explains that the typical expectations for most teens just don’t apply the same to Jenner’s life.

“Kylie might be 17, but from what Kylie has been through and the life she lives, she’s not a normal 17-year-old,” she added.

Kardashian then defended her younger sister’s choice to date an older man, and claims she herself would sleep with older men when she was a teen.

“I think at 16 I was probably f–king someone that was in their twenties, for sure,” she said candidly. “I wouldn’t say I was even dating, probably just sleeping with them. But again Kylie is not a normal 17-year-old. You’re not gonna say, ‘Hey, so what are you doing this weekend?’ and have her say, ‘Having a slumber party at my girlfriend’s,’ or ‘Going to prom.’ That’s not what Kylie does. Kylie is taking business meetings and bought her first house, or she’s going on a private plane with Karl Lagerfeld to take a meeting. That’s not even what people do in their thirties. It’s a rare circumstance, so let’s treat this as a special case.”

Clearly Jenner isn’t living the life of a normal teen, but the fact of the matter is that Jenner’s sex life with her adult boyfriend would still constitute as statutory rape and she’s dealt with a considerable amount of unnecessary drama for a kid over her relationship with Tyga. Yeah, Jenner may be a celebrity kid, but that doesn’t mean she’s not just a kid, too. Moreover, we question who in her life is going to be the adult who guides her instead of enabling her.
