We were seriously bummed out when new mama Kylie Jenner decided to remove all photos of her daughter's face from her social media accounts. But it turns out, Kylie had a dang good reason for keeping Stormi's photos off of Instagram and Twitter -- she's reportedly been dealing with some kidnapping threats. 

  • According to an inside source, Kylie has become concerned for Stormi Webster's safety after multiple threats were made against her on Instagram.

    An insider explained to The Sun that Kylie's decision to remove Stormi from social media was directly in response to threats made to her online. "There have been an increasing number of trolls on social media calling Stormi ugly, and throwing out really horrible insults. It's been really upsetting for Kylie, because also some of the comments are direct threats to kidnap her," the source revealed. "Some people have commented saying it's all Kylie's fault because she has exposed her by putting her on social media. The haters have always been there, but just getting way, way worse these last few weeks—and calling out Kylie for being a bad mom ... Kylie is terrified -- she's stepping up security. She hardly takes Stormi out in public but is now making sure that she's got protection at all times."

  • On Sunday, the 20-year-old posted a selfie on Instagram in which she intentionally cut out her daughter's face. 

    She captioned the photo, "i spy with my little eye..." and it wasn't long before fans asked why she cut her 4-month-old out of the pic. She responded in the comments, "yeah I cut my baby out. I’m not sharing photos of my girl right now." Fans quickly noticed that she had deleted every other photo she had shared of her baby's face. 

  • We can hardly blame Kylie, who has always been more interested in the private life than the rest of her famous family.

    She did manage to keep her entire pregnancy under wraps, after all. Despite the rumors for months leading up to Stormi's arrival in February, she and boyfriend Travis Scott never confirmed the pregnancy, and managed to stay out of the spotlight for the duration. 

    A few days after welcoming their daughter, Kylie released a statement to fans, saying, "I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. my pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself i needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way i knew how. there was no gotcha moment, no big paid reveal i had planned. I knew my baby would feel every stress and every emotion so I chose to do it this way for my little life and our happiness."

  • Honestly, we wouldn't be too surprised if Kylie disappeared from social media altogether. 

    She told Elle UK in 2015 that there was a good chance she'd fall off the face of the planet (at least publicly) once she became a mom. She said, "I would love to have a family and build a home with a farm in Malibu Canyon and just have my kids and throw away my phone, and just really, like, live my life and not do this anymore ... Once I have a kid, I'm not going to be on Instagram. You know, I'll probably delete my Instagram and just … I don't know, live life."

    Sounds like she's on her way to the private life.
