Kim Kardashian West is shutting down rumors about her young daughter.

While leaving the Hollywood Beauty Awards on Sunday night, the mom-of-three was asked by paparazzi at the event if North West, 5½, had a boyfriend, according to Entertainment Tonightand the Daily Mail.

Kardashian West, 38, reportedly firmly shot down the question, responding: “She doesn’t have a boyfriend. Like, is that for real? She’s 5.”

The rumors began when the Instagram account for 7-year-old Caiden Mills, the son of rapper Consequence, claimed that North was the young boy’s girlfriend. On Feb. 6, a photo of Caiden with a bag of Tiffany & Co. jewelry included the caption, “Shout out to Northie, Babygirl I’ll see you soon,” alongside kissing emojis.

Then, on Feb. 9, the account shared a photo of Caiden with North at Kylie Jenner‘s daughter Stormi’s birthday party, captioning the photo, “Boo’d Up.”

A photo of Caiden hanging out with North and Saint West, 3, on a “play date,” was shared last week.

North is Kardashian West’s oldest child, who she shares along with son Saint and daughter Chicago, 1, with husband Kanye West.

Earlier on Sunday, Kardashian West shared a sweet photo of North with little sister Chicago.

“My girls,” the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star wrote in the snap’s caption.

North seems to have come around to her siblings as the family prepares to welcome their fourth child, a baby boy, via surrogate.

In October 2018, Kardashian West revealed on Ashley Graham‘s podcast Pretty Big Deal that her oldest had a little bit of animosity toward her younger siblings.

After recalling some favorite family moments on KUWTK, the mother of three mused to the supermodel that she wasn’t sure North would feel the same way when she got older. “North acts like an only child at all times. I think she’s a little confused,” Kardashian West said. “She’s beyond jealousy now. She’s just like, ‘It’s my world.’

“She said to me the other day, ‘Mom … we just need to have another baby brother so that Saint can just leave me alone … so the girls can be on this side of the house and the boys can be on that side of the house,’ ” she added.
