Kylie Minogue has revealed the REAL reason she stopped Kylie Jenner from protecting their shared first name.
The singer has now claimed it “must be done” after winning her legal battle with an opposing lawsuit in 2016.
Pop star Kylie, 54, who starred in Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, revealed how she felt after emerging victorious from the brand war.
Her legal team has previously referred to the cosmetics entrepreneur as a “secondary reality TV personality” who appeared as a “supporting character” on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
But Kylie now claims, “It was just business.”
She added, “I’ve spent my whole life building and protecting my brand, so it had to be done!”
Kylie then gave host Andy, 54, a high-five as he agreed: “Yes!”
The Australian hitmaker revealed her nickname was much less common when she first got her big break in the 1980s.
“When my name was Kylie, I think I met a person named Kylie who was older than me,” she added.
“So it’s kind of unusual.”
The Grammy winner revealed she didn’t need to contact the beauty mogul or her mother Kris Jenner, 66, but “would love to meet them.”
However, she hinted at a possible settlement between her and the Jenners, saying, “We’ve reached an agreement.”
Last night’s appearance on WWHL marks the first time Kylie has spoken publicly about the legal divide since an interview with Rolling Stone in 2018.
She clarified at the time that the lockdown against the young KUWTK alum was “nothing personal.”
She also distanced herself from the dodgy “secondary reality star” comment, insisting it was one of her attorneys who had used the insult.
“It was just unfortunate that these lawyers would speak like that,” she said.
“So I really hope it gets understood: that certainly didn’t come from me.”
