The sizzling connection between reality star Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet has got out interest since they were originally linked in April 2023.
Following Jenner’s breakup with on-again, off-again boyfriend Travis Scott, news came in spring 2023 that the Kardashians star and the Oscar nominee were spending time together. (The Kylie Cosmetics founder has two children with Scott, Stormi and Aire, whom she divorced after the 2022 holidays.)
“Kylie has only hung out with Timothée a couple of times, so things aren’t that serious,” a source confirmed in April 2023.
As she pursued a connection with the Dune star, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians alum leaned into dating someone outside her comfort zone. (Prior to pursuing Jenner, Chalamet dated Lily-Rose Depp from the fall of 2018 to the spring of 2020.)
“Timothée is a total gentleman and treats [Kylie] with respect. He’s very charming and he makes her laugh, and he’s easy to talk to,” the insider told Us at the time.
“He’s not like any of the other guys she’s dated before and although he may not seem like her type, they have really good chemistry.”
According to a second insider, Jenner loved the “fun and flirty” interaction between her and the Call Me By Your Name star as the month proceeded.
“Despite what some people may think, Kylie really is down-to-earth and laidback. Having some tacos and just hanging out is a perfect date idea for her,” the insider revealed in April 2023, adding that Chalamet texts, FaceTimes or communicates with the Rebel: City of Indra coauthor “in some way almost every day.”
In May 2023, the twosome kept their growing romance under wraps. They appeared to confirm their relationship the following month when they were pictured hanging out at Chalamet’s Beverly Hills home.
“They have been spending as much time together as they can because he is going to be back in New York this summer to film the Bob Dylan biopic,” a source said in June 2023, denying that Jenner has already moved in with the Wonka star.
“They’re making the most of their time together and seeing each other as much as they can.”
The reality star and the Don’t Look Up actor have been “growing much closer as the days go by,” according to a separate source in June 2023. The couple’s dedication to communication has “helped solidify their bond,” according to the insider.
“She’s enjoying getting to know him better and is open to seeing where things go,” a source exclusively told Us of Jenner’s budding romance with the New York native. “Things are very new so it’s hard to tell, but so far she likes what she sees.”
Kylie Jenner and Chalamet’s romance from the start.
“She’s enjoying getting to know him better and is open to seeing where things go,” a source reveals of Kylie’s budding romance with the New York native. “Things are very new so it’s hard to tell, but so far she likes what she sees.”
Kylie decided to let Chalamet “take the lead” in their relationship, according to a second insider, who noted, “She enjoys being courted and feels like the more effort he puts in, the more she likes him.
“At the same time, she appreciates that he doesn’t feel the need to go super over the top with grand gestures just to impress her.”
As the stars continued to fly under the radar, a source exclusively told Us that the Life of Kylie alum was “still casually dating” the Little Women star. “It’s not that serious and they’re taking things as they come,” the insider said.
“They both have incredibly busy schedules which keeps them away from each other for lengthy periods of time. That can make it hard to build a solid foundation, but they’re still in communication and open to seeing where things go.”
The couple was spotted for the first time together during a day date at Chalamet’s house in Los Angeles. That same week, a source exclusively told Us that some of Jenner’s family members, including mom Kris Jenner and sister Kendall Jenner, had met the Lady Bird actress.
“They really like him and think he’s different from anybody Kylie has dated in the past,” the insider said of Kylie’s relative’s opinion of her new flame.
“He has a great sense of humor, and he makes her smile which is the most important thing to them. They love seeing how happy she is and absolutely approve of them dating.”
