Kendall and Kylie Jenner

Kendall and Kylie Jenner may have to pay for the damage to the elevator after the squabbling sisters were trapped on Thursday night (08.09.16).

The residents in the building are reportedly blaming the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' sisters for breaking the lift and want them to foot the bill for repair work.

A source told the New York Post's Page Six Column: "They're getting hit with the bill. They were holding the elevator to the point that it went off track. There are just six units in the building with 'private keyed elevator' access and residents could hear the alarm beeping as they held it open. It's like, 'Welcome to New York,' and high-rise living!"

However, the property's developer Steven Schnall says the girls weren't to blame and insists no one has "suggested" they should pay.

He told the publication: "The elevator got stuck a couple of times. We made a service call and will surely get a bill -- but nobody ever suggested that Kylie or Kendall pay the bill."

Kendall and Kylie spent 20 minutes cooped up with their friends Hailey Baldwin and Jordyn Woods in their $7.35 million apartment lift in New York after the doors got jammed and refused to open.

Documenting the traumatic experience on her Snapchat account, Kylie panned the claustrophobic area as she said: "So my nightmare just happened, we're stuck in an elevator."

Kendall initially seemed quite panicked by the situation but later took charge as she pressed different buttons and pushed the stubborn door in an attempt to free them.

The 19-year-old star said: "Starting to get scary... what is happening? I never thought this would actually happen."

Keen to calm her sibling down, Kendall, 20, said: "The fire crew are on the other side so we're gonna be fine."

As the glamorous foursome patiently waited for the fire crew to release the door, Kendall tucked into a cereal bar but her selfish actions didn't sit too well with her hungry sister.

Kylie screeched as she zoomed into the snack: "We don't know how long we're going to be in here and you ate all the f***ing food we had in the elevator. You ate it all!"

However, the girls were thankfully freed a short while after that and couldn't resist posing for a photograph with the city's fire department as they breathed a big sigh of relief.
