Here’s a split no one saw coming. Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner are reportedly taking a break from their nearly two and a half year relationship. Even though they were completely loved up when he took her on a romantic yachting trip for her 22nd birthday along Italy’s Amalfi Coast in August, things have drastically and quickly changed. TMZ reports that the two had been trying to make the relationship work for awhile, but a few weeks ago they decided to step away and become single again.
The last time the couple was photographed together was at the Aug. 27 premiere of his Netflix documentary Look Mom, I Can Fly, but that was as a family unit with one-year-old daughter Stormi. The “Sicko Mode” rapper was noticeably absent from Kylie’s side as she attended Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin‘s Sept. 30 wedding in South Carolina, with the cosmetics mogul brining Stormi as her plus one. TMZ added that this isn’t the first break they’ve taken in their relationship and then managed to work things out, so there’s a chance they’ll get back together.
Kylie and Travis first started hanging out together at Coachella in April of 2017. Pretty soon they were inseparable with her joining him on tour. They quickly became pregnant — by his estimate in May of 2017 — and welcomed Stormi on Feb. 1, 2018. Travis constantly referred to Kylie as his “wifey” during his 2018-2019 Astroworld tour and his amazement and joy at becoming a dad is featured in his new doc.
There had been breakup rumors in mid September when fans noticed that a framed picture of Kylie and Travis had disappeared when she took a closet selfie on Sept. 17. She also cryptically wrote in the caption, “Ain’t a game, boy 🎮🖤🖤🖤🖤.” But the very next say she shared an IG pic of Stormi’s finger paintings and a framed photo of the couple and their daughter smiling above it, putting the split rumors to rest.
Travis told Rolling Stone in a Dec. 2018 cover story that he needed Kylie in is life to be able to operate and that he planned to propose to her. Travis told the publication that at first, “we was just two kids, f**king around. Maybe, like, the first week, you don’t know if it’s real or a fling. Then the second week you’re like, ‘Whoa, I’m still talking to her, she’s responding, I’m responding. We ain’t run out of a thing to say.’ And it got to a point where I was like, ‘I need her with me to operate. She’s that one.’ ” He added, “We’ll get married soon. I just gotta sturdy up — I gotta propose in a fire way.”
Kylie just gushed over their relationship in the couple’s Playboy interview, which dropped on Sept. 13. When he’s not touring and she’s not running her billion dollar cosmetics empire, they just love to chill. “When we have our days off, we play with Stormi all day, and the three of us have a lot of fun together,” Kylie revealed. “We do a lot of swimming; Stormi loves swimming, so we’re always in the pool or playing in her room or taking her out to lunch with us. After she falls asleep, we watch a lot of TV and we get lost in the theater room and just watch a whole lot of shows and movies. We usually fight over what TV show we’re going to watch. We have a lot of fun together. We’re always laughing or getting into deep talks.” Not anymore apparently.
