Kendall Jenner is allegedly threatened by a Russian model who resembles her. Kate Bogucharskaia bears a striking resemblance to the 20-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
According to OK! magazine, Jenner sees her as a competition. A source said: "Everyone has noticed how much they look alike, and Kate's booking jobs based on the resemblance. At first Kendall was just annoyed, but she's staring to see her as a real threat."
"She sees Kate as an encroachment on her brand. Especially since Kate is so much cheaper to book," the insider added.
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.
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.'"
