Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott open up about their partnership in ‘GQ’: 5 things to know
The new parents posed for their first photo shoot together and revealed details on their romance.
Kylie Jenner is a new mom, an almost billionaire, and the youngest sister in the KarJenner clan, but there’s still a lot we don’t know about the reality star turned beauty mogul.
She and her baby daddy, Travis Scott, recently posed for their first ever photo shoot together and opened up about their union for GQ.
Here’s 5 things we learned about the power couple:
They met at Coachella.
Kylie Jenner insists that she and Scott “don’t go on dates,” but the pair met at Coachella and have been inseparable ever since. “Coachella was one of the stops on his tour,” she explains. “So he said, ‘I’m going back on tour—what do we want to do about this?’ Because we obviously liked each other.” Jenner decided to go on tour with the 27-year-old rapper she now shares a daughter with. “I really jumped on
the bus. And then we rode off into the sunset. I did the whole tour with him.”
Her family was supportive of their whirlwind romance.
“My whole family knows that I do whatever I’m going to do. I’ve been that way my whole life. I don’t really answer to anybody. I live on my own, and so I just rode off into the sunset. We had a lot of downtime. It was organic. And we would just go to these random cities,” said Jenner. “We got to not be who we really were. Like, if we were in L.A., I feel like it would’ve been way different. Everything happened for a reason. We weren’t going out as “Kylie and Trav.” We would just be in Cleveland, walking the street for hours. We would go on walks, and no one would bother us.”
They’re not worried about the Kardashian curse.
While plenty of people have chronicled the shame spiral most men who date the Kardashians find themselves on, Travis Scott is unphased.
“I don’t even be looking at motherfu*&ers. I don’t be looking at shit. Kylie actually likes me for me,” he said. “Man, hell nah. Nervous for what? I’m on my own island. So hey, come over there to Astroworld. I’m not into all the other shit. I don’t get involved. I’m over here. Kylie is different.”
Kylie is unbothered by her haters.
“Well, for all the news stories, it’s how I get over them so fast. Trav, for example, he’s like, ‘Wait…but how do you just get over this?’ He gets more angry about things. It’s not just him. It’s Jordyn [Kylie’s best friend] who I’ve seen affected. It’s everyone around us that aren’t used to it. And we’re just like, ‘Oh, that’ll go away in a day.’ I know these stories aren’t going to matter, so don’t even let them affect you, you know? I think you’re correct. But it’s not just men—it’s friends, it’s people who come and just don’t know how to handle it. It’s the negative. There’s a lot of people who love us, but there’s also a huge handful of people who don’t like us,” she explained.
“I don’t think he’s really cool with it, but he deals with it, because we love each other and we have a family. For sure, I know he doesn’t like the attention. That’s why we just go the extra mile to keep our relationship super private, or like, if he has events or something, I won’t come. Because I want him to do his own thing. I want him to be him. I don’t want it to be Kylie and Trav. If people don’t ever see us together, that’s okay with me, because we just do our thing.”
They have fights like the rest of us.
Jenner and Scott aren’t interested in portraying the perfect couple and Kylie admitted they have their share of spats.
“Me and Travis got in a little fight. Which is normal. So I was just crying because I was just overwhelmed. It wasn’t even about anything really specific. I was just overwhelmed. And then we made up an hour later. I just flew to Houston to see him for a few hours,” she said.
“Just because we’re a family now. When we fight, it’s usually just because we’ve been away from each other for too long and we didn’t see each other for like two weeks. And we have Stormi now, and I can’t travel with her. She’s too young.”
