Many fans were surprised and confused when Quibi, an upcoming mobile-first video platform, announced on Monday that Kendall and momager Kris Jenner are executive producing a new series, titled Kirby Jenner, that will feature Kendall and her “twin brother,” Kirby.
If you’ve been wondering who Kirby Jenner is and whether Kendall has a twin brother, here is everything you need to know.
Who is Kirby Jenner?
Kirby is not related to Kendall. He is a comedian who runs a hilarious Instagram parody account where he pretends to be Kendall’s “fraternal twin brother.”
Kirby began publicly posting about his imaginary fraternal twin relationship with Kendall in July 2015 when he took to Instagram to share a photo in which his face appears side-by-side with Kendall’s.
“Our nanny used to always call us her princess and cabron. Miss ya Yulanda! #bloodthickerthanwine #littlegoat #nanny #twins #princess #blessed #kirbyjenner.”
Since then, Kirby has attracted considerable attention on Instagram. He expertly edits himself into Kendall’s Instagram photos and posts fictitious accounts of his life with the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
One hilarious edit shows him having breakfast with Kanye West.
This morning, me and Kanye ate 17 boxes of Froot Loops together in total silence. I threw up afterwards. It’s something I’ll cherish forever.
Kirby’s real-life identity remains a mystery. We will update this page with information about Kirby’s real-life identity when it becomes available.
