She shares a lot of her life through reality TV but Kylie Jenner is keeping her relationship with boyfriend Tyga away from prying eyes. The couple's romance has rarely been out of the spotlight since rumours that they were dating emerged in 2014 but Jenner has created boundaries to prevent fans from getting "too invested".

In August, Jenner and Tyga, 25, went public with their relationship shortly after the E! reality star celebrated her 18th birthday confirming months of speculation that they are an item. In an interview with Elle Canada, Jenner said of keeping the details of their romance under wraps: "That has been pretty organic. I do think that if you let people in too deep, it gets hard. Your fans get too invested, and then they know when you break up and make up. I don't want people to know every time we fight or break up, so I'd rather keep some things private."

However, Jenner does acknowledge that she invites the attention to her private life given she shares so much on social media, particularly Instagram and Snapchat. The TV star admitted: "I always try to remind myself that it comes with the lifestyle. If you look at other celebrities who get the same sort of attention as I do, they are barely on Instagram or they don't even Snapchat – but I love to share! And I can't live my life reading all the negative comments because there is still so much positive stuff out there. There's good and bad with everything."

Over the years, Jenner has become increasingly aware that being so open with her fans comes at a price, which includes being bombarded with negative comments from others online. However, she is turning this downside into something positive for her legions of young followers.

She said: "I get bullied all the time over the internet but there are so many other people who get bullied way worse than me, and I wanted to share their stories. I wanted to show my fans the people who inspire me, [people] who have been through the darkness of bullying and not only overcome it but done something better with it."
