Well, kids, I guess all good things must come to an end. And by “good things” I’m referring to “celebrity relationships”, because TMZ is reporting that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott broke up. Now, personally, I don’t want to believe it (I like them as a couple, sue me), but TMZ is often not wrong about these sorts of things. So until I get some kind of official confirmation (Instagram post), I’m going to treat this as the truth.
Sources told TMZ that Kylie and Travis haven’t been seen publicly together since his premiere for his Netflix documentary, Look Mom, I Can Fly on August 27. They recall that Kylie hasn’t posted about Travis since September 10, and Travis wasn’t at Justin Bieber’s wedding. That’s suspicious, but maybe the dude was just busy?
Could be, but sources are claiming Kylie and Travis have decided to “step away—at least for now”. I feel like this means that they’ll lay low for a while before Kylie steps out with some new rapper (I predict Playboi Carti) and Travis ends up with a younger lookalike of Kylie Jenner. But hey, maybe I’m just cynical!
Back in March, TMZ reported that Travis had cheated on Kylie. We didn’t get a whole lot more information than that, but if that did happen, I have to wonder if it led to the supposed split.
If there’s one thing I know about the Kardashians (and I know a few things) it’s that if this split is for real, it’s not for good. Kylie and Travis will have to try to “make it work” for a while, spend time apart, try to reconcile, and repeat that cycle for however many years before they just can’t force it any longer.
Then again, even though TMZ is usually pretty spot-on with this stuff, it’s equally possible that Kris Jenner leaked this rumor herself to promote Kylie’s new collaboration with Balmain. Though that deal ended up apparently being a sh*t show when Kylie canceled her Paris Fashion Week appearance last-minute because of “flu-like symptoms”. Could those symptoms have had something to do with an imminent breakup? Is Kylie pregnant again? Am I now a Kylie Jenner truther?
I can only answer one of those questions, and it’s the last one. The answer is that, with this family, anything is possible, and I will be exploring all angles to make sure that nothing surprises me. Kris, I am onto you.
More to come…
