Trypophobia makes her fear small holes and odd patterns
Kendall Jenner revealed she has a phobia of irregular patterns and small puncture holes. This effectively makes her fear pancakes and many types of chocolate bars.
The condition, known as Trypophobia, makes the model feel anxious when looking at such foods. Other items include honeycomb and lotus heads.
She revealed in a blog post: “Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia.
Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns. Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes – it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???”
Ironically, the news comes shortly after Jenner wrote a post about leaving small holes in her face. She used to pluck out her eyebrows and explained it felt like “an eternity” waiting for them to grow back.
She shared: “When I was younger, on a totally weird whim, I plucked out all of my eyebrows! Thankfully, they grew back, but my sisters flipped OUT. Completely. Mortifying.
So, yes, they grew back, but it was soooo slowly and in a kind of gross way. It felt like an eternity.”
In addition, the 20-year-old star also suffers from general anxiety and panic attacks.
Kris Jenner recently revealed: “Kendall had a really awful night last night flying to Paris because she gets really bad panic attacks and anxiety.”
The young model had also backed her up, saying: “When I think something, I don’t usually say it, which is fine. It’s more that I’m introverted.
I never had anxiety about it. I knew it was part of who I am and I owned it. I only get shy if I’m around people who make me nervous, which I guess is normal.”
