Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny are a couple, Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet might be dating, and at this point if the internet told me Kim Kardashian and Paul Mescal were an item, I’d just shrug. But before our collective existential crisis truly hits, let’s parse through what we actually know about Kylie and Timmy…because here’s an upsetting realization: They might have been together as far back as January 2023 without any of us noticing.
Note: This timeline is in reverse chronological order, so the freshest news is at the top. Scroll down if you want to go back, back to the beginning.

They’re keeping things low key and chill for now, but get along great and have fun together.”

And speaking of Travis, an Us Weekly source is out here claiming Kylie’s not over him: “Part of her dating Timothée is in hopes of moving on from Travis, but that hasn’t happened yet. There’s always a possibility of reconciling with Travis at some point.”

Entertainment Tonight confirms what we already know: Kylie and Timmy are dating. According to their source, the pair are “keeping things casual at this point” and are “not serious,” but!!!!!

It’s new and exciting for Kylie and she’s having a lot of fun.”

A tipster writes into DeuxMoi spilling the beans on Kimothée (I’m trying it out, not sure yet, will get back to you): “Anon pls!! Multiple sources have told me that Timmy C has a new girl…Kylie Jenner.”
Another person then chimes in with, “I heard they are both going to be at Coachella,” and yet another person adds, “I can 100% confirm that.”
The vibe on Twitter is immediately just absolute panic. Simply put: No one knows where they are, who they are, or what they are.
Meanwhile, DeuxMoi herself confirms the reports are legit:
On top of alllll this, Us Weekly decides to sow a little extra chaos and drop an article all about how Kylie and Travis Scott are fully going to get back together…at least according to her friends.
“Kylie’s friends genuinely don’t believe that [she] and Travis are done for good,” the insider says. “They’ve always had an on-and-off relationship, so this is nothing new to them. They truly feel like the love is still there and that they’ll find their way back to each other again.”
“They’re always in constant communication and Travis is likely going to spend Easter with Kylie and the kids,” the source adds. “They have a great co-parenting relationship, but her friends feel like their bond goes way deeper than that. They definitely haven’t given up hope on them reconciling and feel like it’s just a matter of time.”

Anyone else read this and barely bat an eye? Same. Little did we know.
January 25, 2023
Kylie and Timmy both attend the Jean Paul Gaultier show in Paris. In fact, there’s footage of them meeting, but it appears to have been (mysteriously) scrubbed from Twitter despite being up when dating rumors broke, so this will have to suffice as proof:
January 7, 2023
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott end their on-again, off-again relationship in early January. (Meaning she’s fully single heading into 2023.)
A source at the time tells Us Weekly that “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 co-parents.”
