Kylie Jenner ain't got time for that! The 16-year-old member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan took to Twitter on Jan. 11 to slam critics after HollywoodLife came out with a report that her mom Kris Jenner had a detailed screening process for her youngest girls' boyfriends. The report claimed that the momager made sure her daughters' dates had celebrity status before they were allowed to go out. 

"The fact that some people actually believe I would waste my time dating someone as a publicity stunt," Jenner tweeted in response to the claims. 

The youngest sister was rumored to be dating Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's son Jaden Smith earlier this year when the two were spotted on several outings. 

But in a recent issue of Seventeen Prom, Jenner said she was single, calling Smith her "best guy friend." 

Kylie's older sister Kendall Jenner, 18, is currently dating One Directioner Harry Styles, which the HollywoodLife report claims is all part of Kris Jenner's master plan for her daughters. 

“Anyone that is about to date them must provide something more than just compatibility emotionally," a source said to HollywoodLife. 

Kendall and Styles, 19, were spotted skiing in Mammoth, Calif. in early January.
