The days of traditional “one-to-one” couple relationships are still very much a thing, but more and more increasingly are the people who love and thrive in open relationships. Over the weekend, the Internet was hit with reports that rapper Travis Scott and Kylie Jenner decided to work out their relationship and rekindle the romance, but this time a little differently. Reportedly the couple has decided to enter into an open relationship.
Before the parents of Stormi Webster became a couple, Jenner was linked to Tyga. The couple were seen hanging out very closely on multiple occasions when she was only 17-years-old, fueling rumors that Jenner and the “Racks” rapper were dating. Sources would continue to deny their relationship although within that time, Tyga broke off his engagement to Blac Chyna (with whom he shares a son).
Finally, on her 18th birthday, it was announced that the pair were officially a couple. Tyga and Kylie Jenner spent two years being a couple before calling it quits in April of 2017. Interestingly enough, that same month Jenner and Travis Scott were spotted at Coachella.
“Kylie and Travis made their way to a private table, where they were joined by friends and enjoyed the deejay,” an insider revealed to PEOPLE. “After five minutes of being in a very crowded space, Travis got up and left the table, and Kylie followed him out with her friends following close behind her.”
The source also added, “[Scott] and Kylie have also been friends for a while and they all hang out. When she and Tyga are having drama, she tries to make him jealous by hanging out with other guys.” Just a week later Jenner was seen courtside at a Houston Rockets playoffs game where Scott had to fulfill performance duties.
“During his performance, Kylie was hiding in the Rockets’ courtside club anxiously waiting for him to come back to her. Once he got back, they definitely looked like a couple, cuddled up next to each other among her friends,” a source said to PEOPLE. “They were super hand-holdy and it seemed like she wanted people to see them together. They haven’t let go of each other since he got off the court.”
Kylie told GQ for an issue to which they grace the cover that initially she did not think Scott was fond of her. “We always knew each other, like we were hanging around each other — I mean, we just had mutual friends,” said Jenner. “But we never really had a conversation because I thought that he didn’t like me.”
Fast forward to February of 2018 when the pair would become new parents. Stormi Webster was born. The couple would go on to appear at different events and shutting down red carpets. However, rumors would begin to swirl of infidelity which would eventually end the relationship.
But US Weekly reported that it was simply a “break”. “Kylie and Travis have been on and off at various times throughout their relationship,” said a source to the publication at the time. “Kylie still loves Travis and this isn’t considered a full breakup to either of them.”
That didn’t stop fans from speculating that the two were still messing around. It appears the two kept a healthy co-parenting relationship. A source tells E! News, “Kylie and Travis have a good thing going right now,” says the third source. “Kylie wants Stormi to have both parents around and values the family time they have.” During the pandemic, it was also reported that the two were quarantined together.
A recent report from TMZ has stated that the two have gotten back together, but the relationship is more unconventional or “open” now. The article claims a source told the publication that Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott “have rekindled the old flame and are dating again, but they’re also free to date other people.”
However, Kylie came forward to debunk the report with a tweet that included a screen shot of a Daily Mail article that read “Kylie Jenner and beau Travis Scott ‘rekindle the romance (but are now in an OPEN relationship!).”

“You guys really just make up anything,” tweeted Jenner on May 21st. In a subsequent tweet, she further denies the claims of being in an open relationship, however, does not deny rekindling the romance with the “Astroworld” rapper. “I’m not discrediting anyone who is in an open relationship but it’s just careless and disrespectful to throw this narrative out there without knowing what’s true,” Jenner tweeted. At this time, Travis has not addressed the rumors of their rekindled relationship, but Jenner has at least shut down the part of it being “open”.
