Kendall Jenner: Starving Herself to Be a Model?

by at .  Updated at .

Kendall Jenner has struck it big as a model. This fact can't really be denied.

But now the following question must be asked: At what cost?!?

The 18-year old recently admitted that she drinks 12 cups of detox tea per day as part of her healthy regime, but many believe this beverage isn't actually healthy at all.

This type of tea is comprised of the diuretic and laxative dandelion root, which can cause dehydration and other major side effects in large doses.

"She wants desperately to be taken seriously as a model,” an insider tells Life & Style. "And if it means starving herself, she’ll do it."

It is true that Kendall has said on many occasions how focused she is on this career. She's complained multiple times about her last name because she doesn't want anyone thinking she hasn't earned her spot on the runway.

And she's also reportedly been trying to distance herself from Kim Kardashian because, let's face it, who takes Ray J's former sex tape partner seriously?

"She’s become more controlling with food," Life & Style also writes. "During a recent family dinner, Kendall ordered just a bunch of raw veggies and nibbled on them."

So, should we be concerned? Should the family stage an intervention? No, says half-brother Brody Jenner.

"Kendall’s got a good head on her shoulders," he says. "I’m not worried at all. She’s doing great.
