Yikes. Just hours after news broke about Kylie Jenner's rumored pregnancy with her boyfriend Travis Scott, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton (real name Mario Armando Lavandeira) couldn't help but throw in his two cents. But now he's getting a ton of backlash for his controversial opinion where he claimed Kylie should have gotten an abortion because she is only 20 years old and expecting a baby with someone she's only been dating for about five months.
“In case you haven’t been paying attention, Kylie Jenner has been dating rapper Travis Scott for um, what, five months, six months? And also a reminder — Kylie Jenner is 19 years old,” Perez said, while incorrectly stating Kylie’s age, since she just turned 20 last month. “I love life, I love babies — if I was Kris Jenner, I would tell that girl to get an abortion."
“Let’s be really real here, people,” he continued. “Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are not gonna last, they’re not gonna end up happily ever after, they’re having a baby and they barely know each other.”
Perez — who is a father to a four-year-old son named Mario Armando Lavandeira III and a two-year-old daughter named Mia Alma Lavandeira — went on to explain his reasons for saying Kylie should have had an abortion. He clained that even though having a child at 20 with someone you’ve only been dating for a handful of months might not be the best decision, it would seem to be a good PR move for Kylie because it would overshadow her brother Rob Kardashian and his ex-fiancée, Blac Chyna.
He also alluded to the fact that Kylie could be getting pregnant in an effort to stay relevant. Perez also said that because of who she is and where she is at this point in her life, Kylie might not be a great mother and she may rely on nannies to raise her child.
Of course, the Internet had a lot to say about Perez's controversial comments. "I'm not even a [Kylie] fan but no man has the right to tell a woman to get an abortion!!! Wow that was very cruel," one fan wrote.
