Engagement Speculation to Sudden Break: Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's Relationship Timeline
Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott, who were first linked in April 2017, are parents to daughter Stormi
In October 2019, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott decided to put their relationship on pause after dating for two years, but as of late, the pair have been spotted together, sparking rumors that a reunion may be on the horizon.
Since first linking up in April 2017, the couple’s whirlwind romance has included low-key dates, the birth of their baby daughter Stormi, flashy birthday presents and quality time with 22-year-old Jenner’s famous family. It appears their bustling careers are what forced them to slow things down.
“They are taking some time, but not done,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “They still have some trust issues but their problems have stemmed more from the stress of their lifestyles.”
Here’s a look back at their relationship.
THE START OF SOMETHING NEW — APRIL 2017
During an off phase of Jenner’s relationship with Tyga, the reality star was spotted getting cozy with Scott at a Coachella party. “Travis and Kylie have been friends for a while and they all hang out,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “When she and Tyga are having drama, she tries to make him jealous by hanging out with other guys.”
But it turns out, Scott became more than just someone to make Tyga jealous with.
PACKING ON THE PDA — APRIL 2017
After hanging out at Coachella together, the couple seemed to make their love official by getting cuddly at an NBA playoff game in Scott’s home of Houston, Texas.
According to an onlooker at the Houston Rockets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder game — where Scott performed before tip-off — the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the hip hop artist was spotted holding hands and “definitely looked like a couple.”
“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,” said the onlooker, who attended the game and spotted Jenner kissing Scott’s neck.
A SHOW OF SUPPORT — APRIL 2017
Jenner headed to Bentley University to support her beau. Located just outside Boston in the town of Waltham, Bentley was celebrating its annual Spring Day, which included a big concert on campus featuring Scott.
Later, the couple headed to Boston’s Theater District where Scott made an appearance at Bijou nightclub.
“He was definitely looking for something intimate,” one club-goer told PEOPLE. “They also talked a lot. Like, actually having a conversation. They were dancing at the club. They were definitely super into each other. He didn’t really perform, he just showed up and partied. They left in the same car too.”
GETTING HANDSY — JUNE 2017
Jenner stopped by the rapper’s Los Angeles home, where the two were spotted getting handsy with one another. Scott was photographed grabbing the bum of the then-19-year-old Kylie Cosmetics founder, who sported a black sweatshirt with an embroidered hoodie and black leggings. At one point during their romantic embrace, Scott lifted up the reality star into the air as they snuggled up in front of the black Cadillac SUV outside of his residence.
MATCHING INK — JUNE 2017
Jenner and Scott attended Khloé Kardashian‘s 33rd birthday party at TAO in L.A., where they were “all over each other,” said one source.
“They recently got matching butterfly tattoos on their ankles that they were showing off to their friends and family,” the insider added. “They were super affectionate and Travis was constantly kissing her on the cheek and whispering in her ear. Their relationship seems to be getting stronger and they’re closer than ever.”
Jenner also went on to get an ankle tattoo in tribute to ex Tyga changed — transforming what once was a lowercase “t” to a lowercase “la.”
MATCHING RINGS — JUNE 2017
Matching bling. Jenner and Scott seemed determined to make their love known, and their next romantic display came in the form of matching rings. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and the rapper were spotted out and about in L.A. wearing sparkling bands on their ring fingers.
BIRTHDAY BLING — AUGUST 2017
On her 20th birthday in August, the Life of Kylie star enjoyed a low-key family celebration at home before hitting a movie theater with Scott. But what fans were quick to point out was the fact that Jenner was sporting some new bling — a very sparkly new diamond necklace, which was a birthday gift from her rapper-boyfriend.
A SEAL OF APPROVAL — AUGUST 2017
Though Jenner and Scott’s relationship was relatively new at the time, her family was definitely on board with the romance: A source told PEOPLE in August that the Kardashian and Jenner crew “loves Travis.”
“Kylie and Travis are doing great,” said the source. “There’s no drama with Travis. He’s a cool guy. He treats Kylie with a lot of respect and love. Kylie is very happy.”
BABY ON BOARD — SEPTEMBER 2017
In September, multiple sources confirmed to PEOPLE that Jenner was pregnant with her first child.
“They started telling friends a few weeks ago,” said the source. “The family has known for quite some time. She is really excited and so is Travis.” Another source close to the family told PEOPLE: “It is an unexpected but completely amazing turn of events that she could not be more excited or thrilled about.”
NEW PARENTS — FEBRUARY 2018
After months of keeping fans in the dark, Jenner confirmed the pregnancy rumors and announced she and Scott had welcomed their first child, daughter Stormi Webster, together on Feb. 1.
“After the baby was born, Kylie was relieved that the moment was finally here,” a source told PEOPLE. And even though the delivery room was “a bit chaotic with all the family and friends around,” the source added that the 20-year-old “was overwhelmed in a good way — overwhelmed with the joy, love and support everyone was giving to her and Travis.”
HAPPY TIMES — FEBRUARY 2018
After welcoming Stormi, Scott kept his own pad as he co-parented with Jenner.
“Despite being new parents, Kylie and Travis are still in a new relationship too. Kylie is happy with their living situation,” a source close to Jenner told PEOPLE. “Travis is a great dad. When he wants to work, Kylie is supportive. She has everything she needs right now and seems very happy.”
HOT WHEELS — MARCH 2018
Showing off two sleek new cars, Jenner hinted that they were meant for her and her boyfriend when she captioned the shot, “mom and dad.” One was a bright orange Lamborghini Aventador, and the other appeared to be a matching model in a darker hue.
BIRTHDAY BOY — APRIL 2018
To celebrate boyfriend Scott’s 27th birthday on April 30, Jenner had a private party at Six Flags Magic Mountain in L.A., which was attended by her sisters Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West and her husband Kanye West. “Rented out six flags for baby’s birthday,” she wrote alongside a video of the start of one of the night’s many roller coaster rides on her Instagram Story.
MET BALL MOM — MAY 2018
Jenner made her post-baby return to the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala. The parents to then-3-month-old Stormi stepped out together for fashion’s biggest night, with Jenner in a head-turning strapless black Alexander Wang gown with a stomach cutout, mirrored sunglasses and 5-carat Chopard diamond earrings.
For his part, the rapper wore a black military-style suit with a harness on top.
COVER STARS — JULY 2018
Gracing the cover of GQ‘s August issue, Jenner and her boyfriend opened up about how they first met, how their lives have changed since they welcomed daughter Stormi — and whether they’re worried about the so-called “Kardashian curse,” the belief that all the men who date a member of the famous family ultimately end up derailing.
“I don’t even be looking at motherf—ers,” he told the magazine. “I don’t be looking at s—. Kylie actually likes me for me. 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 s—. I don’t get involved. I’m over here. Kylie is different.”
MUSIC MUSE — AUGUST 2018
Just three days after the release of Scott’s album Astroworld, the artist dropped the visual for “Stop Trying to Be God” featuring none other than his baby mama. Jenner makes a cameo covered in gold paint and is seen again at the end of the video holding a lamb, who mouths “stop trying to be God.”
SUPER BOWL SUPPORTERS — FEBRUARY 2019
Jenner shared a sweet Instagram video of her daughter cooing as she watched her dad performing on TV, calling it “PRICELESS.”
RED CARPET KISSES — FEBRUARY 2019
Jenner and Scott made their first awards show appearance as a couple at the 2019 Grammys. Scott scored three nominations for best rap album (for Astroworld), best rap song (for his hit single “SICKO MODE”) and best rap performance (also for “SICKO MODE”).
Jenner wore a baby pink halter Balmain Haute Couture jumpsuit with full-glove sleeves and a satin-lace belt, ivory pumps and Lorraine Schwartz jewels for the night out.
A FAMILY HOME — FEBRUARY 2019
Jenner took her boyfriend’s style into consideration when decorating her Hidden Hills mansion, her designer revealed to PEOPLE after the star unveiled the property in the March issue of Architectural Digest.
“She loves pink, so we wanted to do layers of pink,” said Martyn Lawrence Bullard. “But it wasn’t overly feminine because she wants to make sure the man in her life enjoys it as well. He spends a lot of time at the house and has his own closet there. The design was obviously for Kylie but it’s done in a way to really be a family home.”
“They’re incredibly loving together. It’s really quite beautiful,” he added. “Obviously, they’re very young, but to see this young family that actually has this real connection even though they’re both unbelievably in the public eye, it’s kind of wonderful because I think they’ve found somewhat of a sanctuary in each other.”
ROSES ON ROSES — FEBRUARY 2019
On Valentine’s Day, Jenner showed off a truly over-the-top display installed in the entry of her home. The scene featured a series of heart-shaped sculptures completely covered in red roses and lining a mirrored aisle, with a neon pink heart light at the end of the candle-lined walkway. While she played one of Scott’s songs in the background of the video, she didn’t outright say that he was responsible for the eye-catching installation.
Whoever shelled out for the hearts, however, paid a sizable sum: about $67,000, one floral expert estimated to PEOPLE.
MRS. TRAVIS SCOTT? — FEBRUARY 2019
Calling Scott a great dad, a “big kid,” and a fantastic partner, Jenner said when it happens — and she seemed certain it will soon, according to Paper — she’ll be sure to announce it.
“I’ll let everybody know,” she promised.
In July a source told PEOPLE “Kylie is very happy with her life.”
“She and Travis are discussing marriage.”
TROUBLE IN PARADISE? — FEBRUARY 2019
In late February, a TMZ report surfaced that Jenner had accused Scott of cheating, which prompted him to cancel his Feb. 28 Buffalo, New York, show and remain in Los Angeles. (Scott announced on Twitter that he had both canceled and rescheduled his concert due to illness.)
A rep for Scott, however, strongly denied to PEOPLE that he was unfaithful or that he and Jenner had fought about cheating. A rep for Jenner had no comment.
A SIBLING FOR STORMI? — APRIL 2019
In honor of Scott’s 28th birthday on April 30, Jenner dedicated a touching tribute to the rapper on Instagram calling him her “real life bestie & hubby.”
“My real life bestie & hubby all wrapped into one. I love you and I’m so so proud of you. happy happy birthday.”
The reality star even hinted at baby number two writing, “Let’s f— around and have another baby.”
In July a source told PEOPLE Scott and Jenner “are trying” to have another baby and that, “Kylie loves being a mom and can’t wait to give Stormi a sibling.”
“Everyone thinks Kylie will be pregnant with her second baby soon,” the source added.
EUROPEAN GETAWAY — August 2019

The documentary, which gives viewers a look into the musician’s life and rise to stardom, featured glimpses of his romance with Jenner and his journey to fatherhood.
CANDID CONFESSIONS — September 2019
The couple opened up about their relationship (and sex life!) in a cover story for Playboy‘s “Pleasure Issue,” where they admitted the arrival of their daughter hasn’t gotten in the way of them continuing to connect on a physical level.
“A lot of people claim that having a baby can hurt your sex life, but I feel like that’s the opposite of our experience,” said the “Sicko Mode” rapper.
Added the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, laughing, “Yeah, I feel like we’ve definitely proven that rumor to be wrong.”
On the contrary, “You remind me that motherhood and sexuality can coexist, and just because you embrace your sexuality doesn’t mean you have loose morals or you’re not a good mother,” Jenner told Scott, who also creatively directed the shoot and posed alongside his girlfriend for the eight-page spread.
“You can be sexy and still be a badass mom,” the Kylie Cosmetics mogul added.
SOCIAL MEDIA SILENCE — September 2019
Jenner last posted Scott on social media on Sept. 10 to announce their Playboy interview. Scott also posted a photo of them together from their spread in the issue on Sept. 14.
They have not posted each other since.
TAKING TIME APART — October 2019
On Oct. 1 it was revealed that Jenner and Scott have decided to take a break from their relationship.

In November 2019, it was rumored that the makeup mogul was involved with rapper Drake.

MOM & DAD’S NIGHT OUT AT THE OSCAR AFTERPARTIES — February 2020
While on her way to an Oscar afterparty, Jenner posted videos of her sisters Kourtney and Khloé and Travis Scott in the back of a limousine. Were they just carpooling? Or was it a romantic night out? A source made it clear to PEOPLE that they are not officially back together. “They are very happy,” the source said. “It seems too early to say that they are officially back together, though.” They added that it seems like Kylie “doesn’t want the pressure to announce that they are back together until there is more of a commitment from Travis.”
Jenner “has done very well without Travis,” the source continued. “Her family knows that she will continue to do well, even if things with Travis don’t work out.”
“But they are great together,” the source added. “And of course, it’s best for Stormi to have both parents around as much as possible.”
TRAVIS “WASN’T THRILLED” KYLIE MAY BE MOVING ON — February 2020
A source told PEOPLE, “Travis was obviously never thrilled that Kylie hung out with other guys. He is very protective of Kylie. They added that the prospect of a reunion isn’t out of the question. “Kylie doesn’t want this public back-and-forth when it comes to her relationship with Travis,” a source told PEOPLE. “When she is ready to announce that they are back together, she will.”
“For now, they are great and happy. They spend most days together with Stormi,” the source concluded.
