The reality TV star and model gets anxious around tiny little holes.

Kendall Jenner has gone public with her trypophobia battle.

In a blog post on Monday (15Aug16), the model and reality TV star revealed she's terrified by irregular patterns or clusters of small holes or bumps.

"Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia," the 20-year-old wrote. "Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns.

"Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can't even look at little holes - it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what's in there???"

Kendall also suffers from panic attacks, according to her mother Kris Jenner.

The Kardashian/Jenner matriarch recently revealed she had to fly to London to accompany her daughter home to Los Angeles during a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, because Kendall couldn't make the trip alone.

"Kendall had a really awful night last night flying to Paris because she gets really bad panic attacks and anxiety," she told daughter Kim Kardashian. "I don't know what to do."

And the Estee Lauder spokeswoman revealed she's the shy Kardashian clan member earlier this year (16) in a post on her website, writing: "When I think something, I don't usually say it, which is fine. It's more that I'm introverted.

"I never had anxiety about it. I knew it was part of who I am and I owned it... I only get shy if I'm around people who make me nervous, which I guess is normal."
