Earlier this week, the celebrity world was rocked with the news that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott are taking a break from their relationship. This wasn’t the kind of breakup that prompted whiney tweets about how “love is dead,” but it did come as kind of a surprise. Despite rumors that Travis cheated earlier this year, he and Kylie have recently seemed like one of the more stable Kardashian Kouples. When the sources started saying earlier this week that they were on a break, it didn’t necessarily seem like things were over for good.
But then. On Tuesday night, Kylie was spotted hanging out with none other than her ex, Tyga. To help express my unbiased journalistic take on this development, I’m going to employ the help of a gif:
Kylie, WHY? Personally, I’m not sad about her breaking up with Travis Scott, as long as they can still do whatever is best for their daughter. But Tyga? Kylie really needs Jesus, because this is just not the way.
According to E! News sources, Kylie and Tyga have stayed in touch since they broke up in 2017, but they haven’t been super close. That probably has something to do with the fact that Kylie was basically married to Travis Scott for the last two years. On Tuesday night, Kylie was hanging with her friends (Stassie was there, Jordyn obviously wasn’t), and Tyga invited her to come out with his friends. They hung out for a while, and then Kylie was apparently seen showing up to his recording studio later that night.
The sources are saying that nothing “romantic” happened, but honestly, why else would you be at your ex’s recording studio at 2am? They also added that Kylie seeing Tyga wasn’t “an intentional jab at Travis,” but like, come on. No matter what kind of terms Kylie and Travis are on right now, there’s no way that you don’t consider the optics of hanging out with your ex 24 hours after your breakup goes public. Kylie may not be a Rhodes scholar, but even she is not that obtuse.
Currently, Kylie and Tyga don’t follow each other on Instagram, but this family is always weird about who they do and don’t follow. But if they start following each other in the next few days, we’ll really know something is up. Also, let’s not forget that Tyga has a kid with Blac Chyna, who also has a kid with Rob Kardashian, who is Kylie’s half-brother. I forgot about that until like 10 minutes ago, and now I’m even more upset with the possibility that Kylie and Tyga might get back together.
Obviously, it’s not my job to make Kylie’s relationship choices for her, no matter how much it should be my job, but I really feel like she should probably take some time for herself. She obviously has her huge family to support her through a breakup, and jumping into a rebound usually isn’t the right call. Sources close to Kylie say that she really just wants the traditional married life, and to have more kids, but she just turned 22, so there’s no reason she needs to hurry into another relationship.
Whatever is actually going on with Kylie’s love triangle, I’m sure Kris Jenner is working overtime behind the scenes to make sure it’ll be a compelling TV narrative in four to six months. This is what they do best, and obviously I’m watching Kylie’s every move. Just please, please don’t mistake Tyga for husband material! It’s a trap!!
These days, it seems more and more common for celebrities to secretly get married. With the obvious exception of Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Indian extravaganza (with a heavy emphasis on extra), lots of big couples have been keeping things low-key. Cardi and Offset did it, Hailey and Justin did it, and now the latest married couple might be… Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott? Or maybe not. Kylie has a history of calling Travis her husband, so she’s not always the most reliable source of information. Every time Kylie calls Travis some variation of “hubby”, the internet collectively freaks out. This is one such time.
On Tuesday, Kylie posted this picture of herself on Instagram. It’s a pretty typical thirst trap for her, but the caption was what made people really pay attention.
Wow, look at Kylie getting bilingual all of a sudden. I have no idea if she actually speaks Spanish, or if she put this into Google Translate and just liked the way it looks. Probably the latter. For those of you who didn’t study abroad in Barthelona, this translates to “I miss my husband.” Now, in this moment, I finally understand why I struggled through six years of Spanish classes, so thanks Kylie!
So, what does this caption actually mean? Cosmo immediately reported that it’s Kylie confirming her marriage to Travis, and fans have been losing their minds since she posted it. Of course, they do have a child together, so it’s not like getting married would be groundbreaking, but would they really pass up the opportunity for a KUWTK wedding spectacular? I have my doubts. Also, this is not even close to the first time that Kylie has called Travis her husband. Let’s take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
Here’s an Instagram that Kylie posted on November 27th, before Travis’ big concert at Madison Square Garden. Were they married then??
On October 6th, Travis was the musical guest on SNL, and Kylie called him her hubby multiple times. The first was in a now-deleted Instagram post wishing him luck, and the second was a Snapchat video of her watching the show. Were they married already at the beginning of October? Probably not!
Two months before that, on August 10th, Travis took a turn at fanning the wedding rumors, when he called Kylie “wifey” in his birthday Instagram post for her. Now, I’m pretty sure this means absolutely nothing, because I call my best friend wifey when she makes me a quesadilla for me when I’m drunk. It’s not that serious.
And, as if we still needed evidence that the word wifey/hubby/esposo doesn’t really mean anything, here’s my personal favorite piece of evidence: way back in June 2016, Kylie clearly referred to Tyga as her husband in a Snapchat video. God, it’s crazy to think of a time when Kylie was with Tyga and we all actually still used Snapchat. Simpler times. Clearly, Tyga and Kylie were never married, so Kylie saying sh*t like that isn’t legally binding or anything.
Are Kylie and Travis married? Maybe, but who knows. I’m sure we’ll find out in 6-8 months on a carefully produced episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, but until then, we might not know for sure. Basically, everyone needs to chill tf out.

Now that Blac Chyna’s many feuds with the Kardashian family seem to have calmed down for the moment, she’s finally free to focus on her career. What career, you say? Oh yeah, the rap career she’s about to start, because what else would she be doing.
Chyna reportedly has a whole album in the works, but we’ve gotten our first preview of one of her songs, and it’s about what we expected. In the mercifully brief clip, all we really hear is Chyna saying the hook over and over again, and it’s a real treat.
POP THAT PUSSY LIKE A PISTOL.
Wow. Art. Wow. We knew Chyna was special, but wow. It’s hard to tell from such a short snippet, but maybe the song will be a candid reflection on how we view guns in this country, and how sex and violence are similarly portrayed in the media? Or, more likely, it’ll be an absolutely raunchy first attempt at music that will really not leave us wanting more.
It’s unclear if/when Chyna’s album is really coming, but at least she’ll have some help from people with actual rapping experience, as Tory Lanez, Yo Gotti, and Rae Sremmurd are all reportedly working on the project with her. No word on whether Tyga will be featured on any tracks, but we’re gonna guess that’s a hard no.
If you’re still getting used to the news of Kylie Jenner’s pregnancy, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. Aside from us spending the entire weekend having judgmental drunk conversations about it, it sounds like not everyone in the Kardashian-Jenner family is thrilled with the news either. Reports are sort of mixed, but things are definitely a little…komplicated.
One source told PEOPLE magazine that the family is worried, because they think Kylie is “very naive” about what it actually takes to be a mom. Sounds about right, because designing packaging for lipstick isn’t quite the same as shaping a person from the day they’re born.
You might recall that when Kylie and Tyga were still together, she would often say that she couldn’t wait to have kids with him. Despite barely even being legal to date him, she claimed she was ready to be a mom. The family didn’t buy it and would reportedly “beg her to protect herself.” Now we really wish there was footage somewhere of Kris Jenner like, hiding condoms in random places around the house and putting birth control in Kylie’s food.
Some other sources have made it sound like the family is a bit more enthusiastic about the baby news, but no doubt it was pretty surprising either way. Like, when Kylie says she has something to tell you, you probably just assume she has four new nude lip kits that are going to be super cute for fall, not a fucking baby growing inside her.
We’re still waiting for Kylie to say anything about the pregnancy, but at this point it’s only a matter of time.
It’s that time of year again!! It felt like there hadn’t been much drama with Kylie Jenner and Tyga lately, which means it was the perfect time for them to break up again. Right on schedule (like, an E! production schedule perhaps?), there’s trouble in paradise. So what happened? Let’s unpack the drama.
It’s a little unclear who initiated the newest breakup, but there are competing theories. Here’s why it might be Kylie’s choice: mysterious “sources” have said that Kylie felt like she was being taken advantage of. No shit? Tyga has been living at her mansion and she’s been buying him luxury cars and essentially funding his life. That’s what happens when your claim to fame is that you released one shitty song in 2012. Like I know there are people out there who still say “rack, rack city bitch” but it’s not like he’s earning royalties off of that. Sorry Kylie, but you set yourself up for this.
Kylie was also apparently annoyed that Tyga hadn’t put a ring on it yet, which would maybe be a discussion worth having except for the fact that she’s STILL ONLY 19. Seriously, how is this girl still in her teens? Like we don’t have the best concept of time, but it feels (and looks) like Kylie should be approximately 40 years old by now. At this rate she’s going to be 99% plastic by the time she turns 30, so we really can’t wait to see what that looks like.
But some people are also saying it might have been Tyga’s call to break off the relationship. Apparently he doesn’t like how he’s been portrayed on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which honestly would be surprising given that the show is like, the only reason he’s not living in a box. Considering Tyga is the lowest person on the Kardashian totem pole, he should be glad he gets mentioned at all. Especially with Kanye in the picture, Tyga isn’t exactly the rapper everyone’s dying to see.
So now the lovebirds are separated, and it really seems like it could go either way. Like, we’re firmly of the opinion that Kylie is way too young/hot/rich to hang around with some guy who doesn’t treat her well or even have his own income, but they clearly have some connection that none of us understand, so who knows? Kylie was spotted holding hands with Travis Scott at Coachella, so she may have already moved on to a new rapper who actually makes good music.
For now, we’ll be missing Kylie’s Snap stories of her making comfort food for Tyga, but we still have the Snap stories of her doing lipstick swatches on her forearm, thank god.
