As baffled fans bombarded her with questions on a photo she shared showing only a sliver of her four-month-old daughter’s eye, Kylie herself confirmed her decision.
“Yeah I cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now,” she replied to a fan in the comments section.
Theories from fans were thrown up as to why, with suggestions including Kylie was tired of comparisons between Stormi and her bodyguard, or that she’d decided to pull back like she did during her pregnancy.
Now, UK publication The Sun is reporting there is a much more insidious reason behind the baby girl’s social media disappearance.
According to an “insider close to the star,” Kylie made the change after a wave of particularly threatening internet hate.
“There have been an increasing number of trolls on social media calling Stormi ugly, and throwing out really horrible insults,” they said.
“It’s been really upsetting for Kylie, because also some of the comments are direct threats to kidnap her.”
