Kylie Jenner's grandmother may have just answered a lot of questions. The October split that saw the 22-year-old makeup mogul and her rapper boyfriend part ways was a shock one- while Kylie confirmed that her relationship with Travis Scott had ended, she didn't say why.
Esther Jenner (Caitlyn Jenner's 93-year-old mom) has spoken to The Sun with her thoughts, revealing why the Kylie Cosmetics CEO called it quits with her baby daddy. Well, it's Esther's opinion, anyway.
It looks like marriage (or the lack of it) factored into the whole affair in a big-time way.
Exactly What Grandma Said
Esther spoke to The Sun from Idaho.
“Kylie and I keep in touch, we both have iPhones and Facetime. She puts the baby on the FaceTime and I can see her progress, she’s a darling little child," she said of her famous grand-daughter and Stormi.
“I was sympathizing with Kylie a short time ago about the breakup with the baby’s father [Travis]," she added.
"Kylie just smoothed over it real quickly, [saying] ‘We’re both going to be good parents to her’ like in defence almost.”
Convinced The Split Happened Because Travis Never Married Kylie
Esther fully credited the relationship's breakdown due to the lack of marriage.
“But that’s what happens really, so often,” she added.
“Young people today, they think they can live together, start a family together, without being married, it doesn’t work! I don’t know" were her concluding words.
Travis and Kylie embarked on their whirlwind romance in April 2017. Kylie was pregnant within "weeks," per Travis' Rolling Stone interview, with the former couple's daughter Stormi Webster born in February 2018. While plans of marriage were mentioned, nobody ever walked down the aisle.
Travis Never Did 'Propose In A Fire Way'
Fans of the Astroworld rapper will recall those 2018 words. Travis had told Rolling Stone that marriage with Kylie was definitely on the cards. He did need to find a dope way to ask, though.
“We’ll get married soon. I just gotta sturdy up — I gotta propose in a fire way," he told the magazine.
Kylie and Travis' social media activity frequently sparked marriage rumors as the former couple enjoyed both their relationship and parenting daughter Stormi together. With Kylie dubbing Travis "hubby" and the rapper calling Kylie "wifey," fans were pretty much convinced that these two would eventually become husband and wife.
Then It All Fell Apart
Kylie really did seem to have found "the one." Young as she was to be a mother, the world's youngest billionaire was adamant that she'd found her one true love, with many an interview showing the Kylie Skin founder as 100% certain that Travis was the only man on earth who could make her happy.
September 2019 brought a racy, nude shoot as the famous couple were featured by Playboy, but it had all fallen apart by October. Kylie and Travis had featured heavily on social media together for Kylie's luxurious 22nd birthday travels, but the youngest KarJenner won't be ringing in her 23rd birthday with Travis.
Those Drake Rumors
Kylie now finds herself romantically linked to rapper Drake, although it all firmly stands at a rumor. In fact, the latest seems to be suggesting that Kylie isn't interested in pursuing anything with the "God's Plan" rapper because he's a "womanizer," per Capital Xtra.
Kylie's post-split tweet reassured fans that she and Scott are on "good terms." Why they split? Well, aside from Esther's recent reveal, it's still up in the air. Kylie now joins sisters Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian in being a single mother.
