After being trolled all over social media for asking fans to pay for her makeup artist’s car accident, Kylie Jenner has finally broken her silence on this matter.
On Monday, the Kylie Cosmetics owner took over her Instagram Story to dismiss any thought that she was pressing her fans to pay for makeup artist Samuel Rauda’s emergency surgeries.
“I feel it’s important for me to clear up this false narrative that I’ve asked fans for money and am not paying for my makeup artist’s medical bills. Sam isn’t my makeup artist and unfortunately we don’t have a personal relationship anymore but I have worked with him a few years ago and think he’s the sweetest,” the billionaire wrote.
The Keeping Up With Kardashians star also explained that she came to know about Sam’s accident through her current makeup artist and her friend Ariel posts.
“I saw my current makeup artist and friend Ariel post about Sam’s accident and his family’s gofundme and I called Ariel immediately to see what happened to Sam,” Jenner added.
Then she also wrote the reason why she just put 5K as her donation, “After learning in more detail about the accident it compelled me to visit his gofundme which was set at 10K. They had already raised 6K so i put it in 5k to reach their original goal.”
The mother-of-one also explained that through the story she wanted to make awareness that if anyone wants to share or donate, “I thought I’d post stories to gain more awareness if anyone also felt compelled to share or donate. I don’t know how all of this got so twisted but his family has reached out through Ariel and are very appreciative of all the donations, prayers, and love towards Sam.”
In the last, Kylie just wrote in another story, “Anyone that knows me knowns that I do things from my heart and I try to be helpful whenever I can be. Let’s all stay positive and keep Sam, his family, and anyone you know who is going through a difficult time in our prayers. I hope you have a beautiful day and let’s encourage each other to help.”
