Kendall Jenner apparently has to encounter jealous models in the fashion industry. The fellow models reportedly feel they have worked a lot harder than the 19-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star to achieve the same level of fame and success.

"Kendall has to deal with a lot of haters, the majority of the other models are very jealous of her" a source told Hollywood Life.

"It's not really a shock, Kendall gets a ton of special treatment," the insider added. "She came out of nowhere and now she's like best friends with all the major designers. The other girls are incredibly bitter about it. They all complain about how she bought her career, that she's not really a good model and on and on."

Jenner had dropped her famous last name in 2014 and has consistently said that she wants to be taken seriously in the modelling industry. Kim Kardashian's half-sister had listed her name simply as Kendall in the online portfolio for her modelling agency, The Society Management.

It was previously reported that Jenner, who was named the new global face of Estée Lauder, was bullied by other models during the New York Fashion Week. They felt that she made it to New York Fashion Week because of her last name and her brother-in-law Kanye West's connections.

During an interview with Love Magazine, Jenner revealed how the family reality show hindered her modelling career. She said: "I was like, 'You know what? I want to be high fashion. I want to be taken seriously... People think that this [success] just came to me. But it didn't. What I have has almost worked against me. I had to work even harder to get where I wanted because people didn't take me seriously as a mode because of the TV show. I went on castings and some people weren't feeling me because of my name. But it was great when people didn't recognize me. I was like, 'Thank you. Please don't recognize me.'"
