It looks like there’s a new relationship on the rise in Hollywood. One month after announcing her split from Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner is reportedly moving on with another rapper. Multiple sources close to Jenner have revealed that the Lip Kit billionaire and Canadian musician Drake have been spending time together.
A source close to the celebs confirmed that Drake has been spotted with Jenner. “He and Kylie have been spending time together recently,” a source tells People, adding “They’ve been friends for a long time and Drake is very close to the family.” Another source confirms to People that the couple have spent time hanging out together “romantically.” Trips to the Cheesecake Factory? Sounds about right.
Jenner and Drake have definitely been hanging out recently, but whether these meetups have been romantic or platonic is largely unknown. Jenner attended Drake’s 33rd birthday at Goya Studios in Los Angeles in October, but so did just about every other celebrity in the Greater LA area. Jenner also made an appearance at Drake’s Halloween party on Thursday, with another source telling People that Jenner stayed ‘super late.’
Kylie and Drake have known one another for years, with Drake a longtime friend of the Jenner and Kardashian family, even appearing on past episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. But news of a romance between Jenner and Drake could definitely ruffle some feathers. Drake has previously worked with Jenner’s ex Travis Scott, who is also the father of her daughter Stormi. The two rappers appeared together on Scott’s 2018 song “Sicko Mode,” which was part of Scott’s Grammy-nominated third studio album Astroworld.
Drake has also previously had beef with Jenner’s brother-in-law Kanye West. While the two men were friends for years, with West even appearing on Drake’s 2009 track “Forever” and making multiple appearances at the Canadian rapper’s annual OVO Festival, relations soured when West worked with Pusha T on the single “The Story of Adidon,” which revealed that Drake had a son he had been keeping a secret from the public. In another twist, Travis Scott reportedly tried to act as the go-between to mend fences between West and Drake when their feud began to boil over in 2018.
So, if Kylie and Drake really are dating, the hope is that it’s a serious enough relationship to warrant the years of baggage that will likely be brought up throughout the Kardashian/Jenner family. Although neither party has commented on their relationship, Jenner did previously squash rumours that she had reunited with her ex-boyfriend Tyga. After photos surfaced of Jenner visiting a recording studio where Tyga was working following her breakup with Scott, rumours spread that the two had quickly rekindled their relationship. Jenner put a stop to the story by tweeting directly about the situation. Whether she comments about being in her feelings for Drake is to be seen.
The internet makes everything 100 times more dramatic than what it really is. There was no “2am date with Tyga”. You see me drop two of my friends off at a studio that he happened to be at.
