After months of speculation, 20-year-old Kylie Jenner finally announced that she and rapper boyfriend, 25-year-old Travis Scott, had welcomed a baby girl into the world, Stormi Webster. In an emotional Instagram post, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star revealed, "I’m sorry for keeping you in the dark through all the assumptions. I understand you’re used to me bringing you along on all my journeys. My pregnancy was one I chose not to do in front of the world. I knew for myself I needed to prepare for this role of a lifetime in the most positive, stress free, and healthy way I knew how."
The couple revealed their daughter's unusual name, which according to baby naming websites means: "Free-hearted spirit who cares about all" and "Trusts only a few and has the biggest heart." Trust is a key issue for Kylie, who had to fire one assistant after they attempted to take photos of her when she was heavily pregnant. Her relationship with Travis has been kept very secret and behind closed doors, since there is so much they don't want to make public.
Now, the more fans and the media want to know about them - the more has come out about the most talked about couple in showbiz. These are the relationship secrets they would prefer to keep buried because there really has been nothing but trouble in paradise.
21 Kylie Refuses To Go On Date Nights With Travis
Since giving birth, Kylie has been refusing date night with Travis, as it appears being a mom means more to her now than nurturing her relationship. They have been together for less than a year, as they started dating in April 2017, but unlike other couples who are still dining out - they are locked away raising a daughter together instead.
An insider told Hollywood Life, "Kylie's priorities have really shifted over the past nine months, she's matured a lot, and her focus now is on being a mom and working hard to provide for her daughter."
"Travis has been trying really hard to persuade Kylie to take a night off so they can enjoy a date night out together, but she's just not ready to leave Stormi just yet." Maybe when the baby has settled into a new routine Kylie will want to enjoy nights out once again.
20 Did Kylie Have Complete Control Over Stormi's Name?
Kylie is morphing into a mini-Kris when it comes to business and she understands that celebrity is big money. That's why she already has Stormi's name picked out months before the birth and trademarked to use for future business deals. Even though she just wants the best for her daughter, this has caused huge problems between her and Travis.
The Sun reported, "Travis and Kylie have been at war over their baby name. They both have strong opinions about the name of their baby but Kylie refuses to compromise with Travis at all. She is being stubborn with Travis who does not agree with her choices." The insider added, "Travis has his own thoughts on what the name should be and what it could represent but Kylie doesn’t want to listen to him."
19 They Have Huge Blowup Fights And He Drives Off
Only four days after Kylie gave birth, the couple got into a huge row and Travis stormed off behind the wheel of his car. According to an eyewitness, Hollywood Life reported,
"Travis left Kylie and their new baby in a raging fury and began speeding home, illegally passing cars, driving recklessly and was very visibly mad as he drove to back to his place. He was clearly upset and very bothered about what had just happened inside with Kylie."
Apparently, the rift was caused by their conflicting ideas about how to raise their daughter. The pregnancy was such a shock that they had next to no time to discuss exactly what they wanted for their family. Both parents are unwilling to compromise and want very different things for Stormi, but as they have been dating for such a short time they don't know how to deal with a fight.
18 Their Relationship Is Driving Jordyn Away
The cracks in this friendship between Kylie and her BFF Jordyn Woods were on display for all to see during the season finale of Life of Kylie. Jordyn complained that Travis is the top priority now - even him and Kylie had only been dating for a few months - meaning that she was left to feel like a "third wheel."
In the episode, Kylie and Jordyn enjoy a girly holiday to Peru but on the way back to Los Angeles, Kylie insists that the plane drop her off in Houston where Travis is performing a show. Jordyn was frustrated that the trip had to make a detour a few thousand miles in the opposite direction just for Kylie and her new beau. Kylie cries, "I'm going to miss his show!" Jordyn later told Kylie, "I feel like a third wheel when you're dragging me to these places." Now things have become super serious between Kylie and Travis this could end with an even bigger wedge between the girls.
17 They Could Be Under Kanye West's Control
Kanye West is known for his controlling behavior when it was revealed within months of dating Kim; he made her throw out a lot of her wardrobe and gave her a new image. Now he's finished with Project Kim, he's moving onto her other family members like Kylie. Kanye already tried to block Kylie from signing a contract with Puma because he is an ambassador for Adidas - but he failed.
It was reported that the Yeezy designer was the one who pushed both Kylie and Travis together in the beginning.
Now that baby Stormi is here, according to insiders, the couple is watched over by Kanye because he wants to keep a tight family unit.
W Magazine reported, "Kanye is protective of all of his family and wanted Travis to know that he better not let Kylie down in any way once the baby arrives because Kanye will be watching."
16 Travis Originally Dated Kendall - And It's Caused A Lot Of Drama
The Kardashian-Jenners have always had messy and complicated personal lives but even this love triangle is a bit too crazy. In early 2016, Travis only had eyes for Kylie's sister Kendall and the rumors were that the two had a fling together before he moved in on Kylie. An insider told OK! Magazine, "(Travis was) boasting that Kylie’s way better (at romance) than Kendall but Kendall’s got more personality."
After baby Stormi was born, Kendall was the only family member not to congratulate the couple on the new arrival via social media, whereas all Kylie's other family members wrote public posts. Kylie and Kendall have always had some rivalry going on between them so this comes as no surprise that they would be at war again.
15 Kris Isn't Happy Travis "Abandoned" Kylie
Travis better get used to feeling the wrath of Kris Jenner because when the momager is not happy she will let whoever has upset her know about it. During Kylie's pregnancy, Travis was out partying with Kanye (who was also expecting a baby via surrogate with Kim) and their pals instead of being at home. An insider told Hollywood Life,
"Kris is furious that both Travis and Kanye have seemingly disappeared lately. Kris is fiercely protective of her daughters and at the same time, she has a reality show to produce too."
Kylie was also feeling the strain of not having around to support her as the insider revealed she would prefer Travis to "go straight from the stage to a private jet and fly home to be with her." It appears the rapper just can't resist an after party.
14 Kylie Was Furious When Travis Was Spotted Close To Blac Chyna
There is such a history when it comes to Kylie and Blac Chyna drama that it's no surprise this ongoing feud has reared it's ugly head once again. Travis was spotted partying at the same nightclub as Chyna and this would have left Kylie - who was at home heavily pregnant - furious. An insider told The Sun, "Because of the court battle they had with Blac Chyna, they can’t be too careful." Referring to the legal battle where Chyna accused Kylie and her family of ruining her career, they added, "There’s always someone who’ll want to make money off a Kardashian or Jenner name."
Chyna made matters even worse when she started to follow Travis on Instagram just a few days after they were spotted at the club together. Fans of The Shade Room commented on the follow notification, "Chyna literally makes me SICK," and another added, "Lmaoooo Kylie gotta chill... Chyna an OG in the game and she just getting started."
13 Kylie's Parents Don't Have Complete Faith In The Relationship
Kylie announced her pregnancy to the family just one month after her 20th birthday and it's no big shock that Kris had fixed feelings about her youngest daughter having a baby. The Momager tried to stress to Kylie that although babysitting for her nieces and nephews is a lot of fun - being a parent is completely different. An insider told People,
"Kylie is very naive. Spending time with other people’s kids is obviously completely different than being a mom 24/7. Kylie, of course, has no idea about all the hard work and sleepless nights."
Caitlyn Jenner also "wasn't happy" over the news either. Entertainment Tonight reported that Caitlyn was also "hesitant" over Kylie's relationship with Travis. In a previous episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Caitlyn advised her daughter to wait till 30 until she had kids - advice which clearly was ignored.
12 Kylie May Never Marry So She Can Protect Her Fortune
It's official - Kylie will become the richest of the Kardashian-Jenner siblings as it's predicted that by 2022 her company Kylie Cosmetics will be worth a staggering $1 billion. Speaking about her beauty empire to LOVE magazine, she said, "I think truly, I put a lot of hard work into this. It's not like I am doing this to make money. I don't even think about that part." Kylie might not be thinking about her finances but her advisers certainly will be.
Kylie's estimated net worth is around $50 million compared to Travis and his $8 million. There might not be the sound of wedding bells anytime soon as Kris will want to go above and beyond to protect her daughter's fortune. A source told Hollywood Life, "When it comes to the money her girls have made, no man will touch that. Kris has got a dead man’s grip on the family’s fortune and she will protect the empire and those dead presidents until the day she dies."
11 They Want To Be The Next "Kim And Kanye" And Steal Their Crown
Kylie and Travis are just like Kim and Kanye - one half of the couple is a rapper and producer and the other half is a reality star turned cosmetic entrepreneur. Kimye had better watched their crown, as Kylie and Travis are one of the most talked about couples of the moment and they are just a reality show of their own away from the top.
It also hasn't helped with the sibling rivalry now that it's revealed that Kylie is on track to become the first billionaire in the family.
A source told In Touch, "Kim is privately jealous over Kylie’s success because she always thought she'd be the first Kardashian billionaire." Adding, "When Keeping Up With the Kardashians first started, all eyes were on Kim, and Kylie was a lesser presence because she was so young. Now Kim is feeling the competition, and it bothers her."
10 Kylie Is Still Jealous Travis Had A Relationship With Rihanna
There are not many women who could threaten Kylie as she's always been at the top of her game - but Rihanna is a huge problem for her. Not only does she know that Travis once dated the Kiss It Better singer but she also has to directly compete with her in the cosmetics market. Only last month it was reported that Rihanna's line FENTY Beauty was on track to outsell Kylie's Cosmetics. Since Rihanna dropped her line, Kylie unfollowed her rival on Instagram.
When Rihanna first heard that Travis had moved on to Kylie she wasn't worried about the reality star taking her "hand-me-downs." A source told Hollywood Life, "(Rihanna's) not claiming Travis, but she thinks it’s tasteless that Kylie’s pushing up on her ex. Granted, everyone’s someone’s ex, but these sisters! They’re like Goodwill because they’re always looking for someone’s hand-me-downs."
9 They Try To Keep Stormi From Finding This Mugshot Of Travis
Kylie has already proven that she will be a protective mother of her daughter and she will likely want to keep her baby daddy's record of arrests hidden. Travis was first taken in when he encouraged fans to jump over the barricades during a performance at Lollapalooza festival putting their lives at risk. He also got into a physical fight with a fan that had tried to pull off his chain during another performance.
TMZ reported that he was arrested for inciting yet another riot when he once again encouraged fans to storm the stage at an Arkansas concert.
He was handcuffed the second he stepped off the stage.
These are memories Kylie might not enjoy Travis sharing with their family around the dinner table in the future.
8 They Leave The Childcare To A Team Of Nannies
Kylie reportedly has a full team of nannies and assistants on hand to help things along. People reported, "With the support and abilities she has to hire nannies and assistants, she’s been a really, really great mom." When her team isn't hard at work doing a diaper change, Travis and his family like to take over but it's a struggle as "all (Kylie) wants to do is hold her baby."
Kylie shared with her followers on Snapchat a video of her squeezing her newborn's tiny little feet and cooed, "Mommy’s cute little toes…" She also told her fans on Twitter that Stormi was doing "great" and that she "looks just like me when I was a baby." Even with the team of staff, she seems to be doing a great job herself too.
7 Travis Will Leave Kylie With The Baby When He Goes On Tour
Since Travis first signed to Kanye's GOOD Music record label in 2012, he has released a string of hits, won over fans all around the world and even received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Performance for Love Galore. When you're on this much of a high, you don't want it to stop and not even a new baby is going to get in the way of his career. Now he's preparing to go on tour again, which will leave Kylie at home holding the baby.
An insider told Hollywood Life, "When Kylie got pregnant, Travis never pretended he was going to be the model dad. He’s never intended to put his career on ice so he can just sit around at home with her night after night."
Hopefully, Kylie knew exactly what she was getting herself into.
6 Kylie Wants To Keep Her Daughter Locked Away Behind Her Private Gates
Kylie managed to avoid confirming her pregnancy for nine months, and in her official baby announcement post, she revealed it was because she wanted to enjoy her pregnancy in private. Kylie still wants to keep her family locked away behind the gates of her Hidden Hills mansion with A-list neighbors Drake and Miley Cyrus living close by. Stormi will be surrounded by 7 acres of private land, so plenty of space to grow.
However, Travis has different opinions on how he would like his daughter to be raised. A close insider told Hollywood Life, "Kylie is laying down the ground rules now for how she plans on bringing up her baby privately, behind the gates of her private community, and Travis feels like that is simply not healthy for the kid. Travis wants his baby to travel, visit family in Texas, and be exposed to the world early on. Kylie feels differently and their disagreements worry her."
5 Travis Never Calls When He's Out Of Town
As if being away from her baby daddy isn't hard enough, Kylie also has to put up with Travis not checking in when he's away. There could be a genuine reason behind these rumors as the time difference will make keeping in touch complicated and he won't want to wake the exhausted new mom. Although, others believe that Travis is just enjoying his rap career too much to think about his family back at home.
Hollywood Life reported, "Travis is loving life right now - his career is red hot and he’s raking in the money. This is the lifestyle that Travis has always wanted - performing in front of thousands of screaming fans, private jets, champagne, parties - he’s really living the high life."
Your life changes when you become a father but for Travis he wants everything to stay the same.
4 Kylie Was Paranoid About Travis Cheating Throughout Her Pregnancy
Has Travis been cheating on Kylie? Being unfaithful is something she has always worried about ever since her relationship with Tyga when the rumors were he was going behind her back. Now, Kylie is worried history will repeat itself and the fans that throw themselves at her boyfriend will be too much of a temptation for the rapper.
Over Christmas, when Kylie was heavily pregnant at home, her paranoia had apparently reached its peak and she no longer trusted him during his time away on tour. Hollywood Life reported, "She’s got a lot of unanswered questions when it comes to Travis. She can’t help but worry that he’s cheating on her and she’s started saying she wants him to take a lie detector test to prove he’s been faithful."
3 Is Kylie STILL Texting Tyga?
Everyone remembers your first love, but for Kylie, she can't shake off her ex-boyfriend. When Kylie and Tyga split it wasn't on bad terms, as she revealed on Life of Kylie,
"There was absolutely not one thing wrong with me and T. He and I will always, always have a bond."
She added, "There was no crazy fight, we just decided…Well, I decided that I’m really young. I don’t want to look back in five years from now and feel like he took something from me when he’s really not that type of person."
Tyga will always have a family connection to the Kardashians - his son King Cairo is the half-brother to Rob Kardashian's daughter, Dream (we know...it's complicated) - but Travis isn't happy she's still in touch with her ex. Hollywood Life reported, "Tyga told Kylie that he knew she was going to be an amazing mother. It was short, sweet and included that he misses her and hopes he gets to meet the baby."
2 Travis Refuses To Acknowledge He's In A Relationship With Kylie
Just like with Rihanna before Kylie - Travis will not publicly acknowledge his relationship with Kylie. The Kardashian-Jenners have made a fortune from talking about their personal lives but Travis isn't willing to play the fame game. Besides some rare PDA pictures, he refuses to speak about his baby momma in interviews and dodges any questions.
When Billboard magazine asked about his relationship with the youngest reality star in the family, he dodged it by answering about his career, replying, "I’ve been on (a busy) schedule for the past six, seven years. I got too much s*** to do, too much ground to cover. My whole life, I ain’t been on vacation." When the then-expectant father was asked how he would like to spend his time off, instead of saying at home with his new family, he replied he'd go to "Heaven - hopefully."
1 They Have Already Had A Secret Breakup
The relationship between Kylie and Travis has already proved it has many cracks. They had been dating for less than a year when they welcomed baby Stormi into their lives and it has been a lot of pressure for the young couple.
Just before Christmas, two months before the baby was born, Travis walked out on Kylie following a "meltdown", according to the Radar Online.
A source revealed, "can’t do this anymore" (Travis) finally plucked up the courage to tell Kylie he’s done, that he loves her and will always be around for the baby, but they’re not compatible as a couple. Kylie was totally blindsided even though everyone else in her life saw this coming." The couple is under so much pressure and all the speculation isn't going away anytime soon - so only time will tell how this drama eventually unfolds.
