Kylie Jenner made the outrageous claim that she had just tried one of the culinary world’s most classic combinations, cereal with milk, for the very first time Tuesday.
The internet took a collective gasp at the news but TMZ uncovered evidence that the Keeping Up With the Kardashian’s star has actually enjoyed the common breakfast before.
It all began when the 21-year-old took to her Twitter account and wrote: ‘Last night i had cereal with milk for the first time. life changing. I always liked cereal dry I never bothered to put milk.’
Lies? Kylie Jenner posted this photo of cereal swimming in a bowl of milk on Instagram in 2013. TMZ dug up the photo on Wednesday to refute Kylie’s earlier claim that she’d never eaten cereal with milk
What? Kylie Jenner has told fans that she only tried cereal with milk for the first time this week after her best friend Jordyn Woods asked her to
On Wednesday, TMZ dug deep into Kylie’s social media history and found that in 2013 the reality star posted a photo of, you guessed it, a big bowl of cereal … with milk.
The photo was just a shot of the meal – which appeared to be some sort of plain bran flakes with fresh strawberries and blueberries that were swimming in milk.
In the caption, dated April 25, 2013, the billionaire business woman wrote ‘he keeps me healthy.’
It’s unclear who 16-year-old Kylie was referring to as ‘he’ at the time, but perhaps it was a reference to dad Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce) and her Wheaties boxes from the 70s.
False! Turns out Kylie’s claim proved to be untrue, TMZ dug up a social media photo from 2013 that proves Kylie has eaten the combo before
Her choice: The Lip Kit founder said the cereal she tried on Monday was Cinnamon Toast Crunch, which she added was ‘amazing’
The internet now doesn’t know what to do with the Lip Kit founder’s previous claims that the ‘amazing’ Cinnamon Toast Crunch and milk she dined on this week was a first for her.
Before the news broke that she was fibbing in the tweet, the mogul posted a follow up video on her Snapchat account to explain the rationale for allegedly only trying cereal with milk at 21.
She explained: ‘So I think people were a little confused when I tweeted that last night was the first time that I ever tried milk with my cereal.
‘That is a fact. Everyone has their personal preference, I never preferred soggy cereal. I just really enjoyed my dry, crunchy cereal, and I know there are other people out there that agreed with me.
‘So I think just as a young child, always eating dry cereal and never wanting to sog up my cereal, I’ve just got used to it where I never wanted to do it until last night until Jordyn [Woods, her best friend] said I want some cereal and milk and I was like: “You know, tonight’s the night and I’m going to try it.”‘
Yes, this really happened: Jenner carried on for a while with her followers as she explained her likes and dislikes with cereal
Apparently facts are not, in fact, facts when it comes to cereal.
The star might not remember that five years ago she once posted a photo directly contradicting her current statements.
Or, it’s also possible that the 2013 photo was all for show and the starlet never actually ate it since she doesn’t like to eat soggy cereal.
To be fair, there is not a spoon in sight in the picture.
Either way, the mother of one still isn’t completely sold on the idea moving forward.
She explained: ‘I still prefer dry cereal but it was pretty fire and nothing was ever the same. I don’t like to put too much though, I definitely like cereal with a side of milk. I’m really not being dramatic, it’s not hitting the spot crazy.’
Kylie has yet to comment on the new smoking-gun photo of her sordid soggy cereal past.
The drama, indeed: Jordyn Woods flashed a shot of the cereal that Kylie ate with milk – which she falsely claimed was a first
