Justin Bieber helps Kylie Jenner deal with fame

Justin Bieber has been helping reality TV star Kylie Jenner cope with the pressures of fame.

Kylie was just seven years old when her family's reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered, and she has grown up onscreen with her sister Kendall and stepsisters Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian.


This year (15), Kylie and Kendall established their own careers away from the family and achieved a new level of fame, so former child star Justin, who signed a record deal at the age of 13, has been on hand to help them.


"I'm so close to him because I feel like he's been through exactly what I've been through in a completely different way but very similar," Kylie, now 18, tells Elle U.K. magazine. "He gets me, and every time I see him he always sits me down and is like, 'Are you OK? You're amazing. You can get through this, just stay true to yourself.' He helps me a lot."


During the interview, Kylie also admits online bullying is to be expected as a celebrity, but she still hopes her hashtag campaign #IAmMoreThan will help end online nastiness for good.


"I came up with the idea because I feel like being a teenage girl and growing up in the spotlight, online bullying is kind of inevitable. I'm OK with that," she adds. "It hurts me still but I can handle it and I know it comes with the lifestyle, and it's just mean people on the Internet doing what they do. But I just wanted to find real people with real stories about their bullying and how they overcame it."


The prolific social media user, who is dating rapper Tyga, plans to quit the sites once she has children of her own. She adds, "Once I have a kid I'm not going to be on Instagram... You know, I'll probably delete my Instagram and just...I don't know, live life."
