Kylie Jenner has reportedly quit being homeschooled. And insiders say Kris Jenner is more concerned with being a cool mom and friend so she lets the 17-year-old throw wild parties and have her alleged boyfriend sleep over often.
“Kylie quit homeschooling a few months ago,” a source told Life & Style. On an old episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kendall Jenner and Kylie begged their mother to allow them to drop regular school and get a tutor so they could pursue a career in entertainment. Since then, Kylie isn’t even in homeschool anymore. “She told her mom [her education] was getting ‘in the way’ of her career, and that she wanted to focus her energies on building her personal brand and making money.”
Mother/ manager Kris “gave in,” adds the source. “She feels the girls are smart and savvy and they don’t need a piece of paper to show that.” It was previously reported that Kris allowed Kylie, 17, to date rapper Tyga, 25, to avoid Kylie rebelling against authority (seven months) before she turns 18.
In addition to letting them date, Kris is letting them sleep under the same roof (Kim Kardashian previously told a magazine her mother gave her permission to have sex and supplied the birth control when Kim was 14, Kim was dating Michael Jackson’s nephew at the time… and Kris has admitted putting the Jenner girls on birth control since their early teens).
“There are many nights that Tyga just crashes at Kylie’s house, with Kris’ blessing,” reveals a source. “Kris is very liberal with rules for Kylie, and allows her to throw parties all the time at the mansion.”
“Kylie’s dad, Bruce, doesn’t like Tyga spending the night at the house, but he is really powerless to do anything,” the source added. “Kris and Bruce have fought about it, and he has accused her of being a friend first to Kylie, and not acting like a mother.” Other sources also revealed that Bruce and his son Brody dislike Kris’ parenting style.
The source admitted, “Kylie will soon be turning 18, and Kris doesn’t want to do anything that would cause her to move out sooner. Kris has always wanted to be the cool mom, and isn’t concerned Kylie is growing up too fast.”
UPDATE: Kylie tells PEOPLE, “I haven’t dropped out of school… I still go to school every day.” Once she gets her high school diploma, “I want to keep doing what I do now. I love fashion … I have a lot of interests I’m pursuing.”
