Everyone takes a moment to say a prayer for Sam who got into an accident this past weekend. And swipe up to visit his families go fund me.”
The fundraiser was seeking $120,000 to cover medical costs and according to The Sun, it had reached $97,000 by Sunday morning, $5,000 of which was reportedly a donation from Kylie. However, fans quickly took to Twitter to share their disappointment, suggesting that Kylie could
have covered the costs herself rather than asking her fans to donate with many of them referencing the fact that Kylie has an estimated net worth of $900m.
On Monday, March 22, Jenner Kylie addressed the backlash on Instagram.
“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,” Jenner wrote. “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. 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.”
“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 and thought I’d post on my 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.”
“Anyone that knows me knows that I do things from the 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.”
