It has been rumored that beauty mogul Kylie Jenner and actor Timothée Chalamet sparked a romance this year, shortly after Jenner split with the father of her two children, Travis Scott. She and Scott had an on-again-off-again relationship for a few years and now co-parent their daughter Stormi and son Aire. But Jenner seems to be moving on, though her choice is unexpected for fans.
The relationship has not been officially confirmed by either party, but here’s everything we know about Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet’s relationship so far.
Jenner and Scott spent their holidays separately and by early January, a source told US Weekly, “Kylie and Travis are off again, they were supposed to spend the holidays together, but she went to Aspen to be with her family and friends up there… This has happened so many times before, they’re known to be on again off again, but always remain friends and great coparents.”
Then on January 25, Jenner and Chalamet were seen enjoying one another’s company at Paris Fashion Week during the Jean Paul Gaultier show. This was allegedly their first meeting, and gossip account DeuxMoi later shared a video of them laughing together once rumors started circulating that they were more than friends.
In early April, DeuxMoi first started posting about the alleged couple, sharing a picture of them together with the caption, “NEW COUPLE ALERT.”
Soon after, TMZ released pics of her familiar black Ranger Rover parked outside Chalamet’s Beverly Hills home. Around April 13, an eyewitness told Daily Mail that they saw Chalamet getting into Jenner’s car after leaving an art show in Santa Monica. He exited the event “looking around anxiously” and “texting constantly on his phone.”
Then Jenner supposedly “pulled up in her custom Extended Lincoln Navigator, with security in the front seats.”
They then headed to Tito’s Taco stand for a secret parking lot date. On April 14, source told People that the pair have been “hanging out and getting to know each other.”
A few days later, another source told Entertainment Tonight that they are officially dating, but things are casual.
“They are keeping things casual at this point,” said the insider. “It’s not serious, but Kylie is enjoying hanging out with Timothée and seeing where it goes. It’s been really fun for her because it feels a lot different than her past relationships. It’s new and exciting for Kylie and she’s having a lot of fun.”
They added, “Kylie decided she didn’t want to make things public with Timothée this past weekend at Coachella and really just wanted to chill and have fun with her friends.”
Another insider told People that the two “hang out every week” but it’s “not serious.”
“She is getting to know him,” the source added. “Kylie is having fun. After years of back and forth with Travis [Scott], she just wants to date without any pressure.”
