"I gotta propose in a fire way." When Travis Scott sat down with Rolling Stone in December 2018, he reassured the world that he will propose to Kylie Jenner. With a #RockSolid since 2017 (and the world's most famous baby), Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott aren't a couple anyone needs to worry about on a "Khloe and Tristan" level.
The Kardashian-Jenners might be known for their millions, but they're just as known for their relationships. Mostly, it's the recent ones that stick in everyone's minds. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have been together since 2012. They tied the knot in 2014. Fast-forward five years later, and they're expecting their fourth baby.
Khloe Kardashian probably doesn't need much explaining at this point. Her ex, Tristan Thompson, now comes with #JordynWood headlines, although Khloe has been down that road before. Yes, with no less than two basketball players (before Tristan).
Whether it's Kourtney Kardashian's younger boyfriends, her baby daddy Scott Disick, or even more of an age gap with Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble, the relationships in this family are as complicated as they are visible. Mostly, it's on social media.
This list isn't for the self-posted pics. It's the opposite. Specifically, it's looking at Kardashian relationship moments that were caught on camera (but that most people still haven't seen). Kendall Jenner dating Harry Styles? Forgotten. Kylie and Tyga? Who?
Pics don't disappear. The internet exists for a reason. Here are 25 pics of the Kardashian-Jenner relationships, #RareStyle. Definitely not ones that are floating around Khloe or Kylie's IG...
25 Because This Literally Says #Trouble
The February 2019 news that catapulted Jordyn Woods to the front page is still going strong. Red Table Talk gave Jordyn the chance to explain herself, but she maintains that she is no "homewrecker." Khloe was a few months pregnant in this shot with Tristan. Face saying it all, Tristan?
"What’s been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me. Someone whom I love & treat like a little sister. But Jordyn is not to be blamed for the breakup of my family. This was Tristan’s fault," Elle quotes Khloe's recent tweet.
24 Because Kylie And Tyga Feels Like A Zillion Years Ago
2017 basically changed everything for Kylie. She met Travis Scott, fell in love, fell pregnant, and the rest is history. Speaking of history, cast your mind back to 2016, a.k.a. "the Tyga era."
Kylie was trying to "make her ex jealous by hanging out with other guys."
As Cosmo reports, Kylie's split from Tyga came with a somewhat infantile attitude, although Kylie has since grown up. Pics of Kylie and Tyga in random parking lots? Yeah, you won't find that many of them.
23 When Kim And Kanye Were Just Getting Acquainted
It's straight-up adorable. Kim didn't yet have her pouty glam look. Kanye was still in his early 30s. Kim and Kanye started dating in 2012, as per This Is Insider.
"I just knew I wanted her to be my girl for a long time," Kanye told Ryan Seacrest in 2012. "I remember I saw a picture of her and Paris Hilton, and I remember telling my boy: Have you seen that girl Kim Kar-dijon?" Kim has since joked that Kanye didn't even know her actual last name when meeting her.
22 Kourtney And Scott: The Good Old Days
It just feels nostalgic. Super-old pics of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick aren't really posted anymore. Everyone wants to see what's going on with Sofia Richie (and whatever 20-something Kourt is dating).
It was a love story. It was also rocky. "I introduced Kourtney and Scott at my house in Mexico," their mutual friend told In Touch Weekly. "Scott came as the guest as a friend of mine, and they met in my master bedroom." That master bedroom isn't being shared anymore, but we've got these memories.
21 Risky Basketball Player #1 (Lamar Odom)
Khloe hasn't had it easy with men. This Kardashian seems to choose a pattern– she makes a beeline for the basketball players. Before Tristan, there was Khloe's 2009 marriage to Lamar Odom. That ended with infidelity. Lamar has since sent Khloe support though, as Girlfriend reports:
"Lamar has always cared about Khloe, he still has love for her and he hates that she’s been hurt again… He has a lot to regret over how he acted in their marriage. And he feels [so bad] that she is going through more pain. He wants to reach out to her and give her his love and support.”
20 Risky Basketball Player #2 (James Harden)
And we're onto basketball player #2. Following Lamar Odom, but before Tristan, Khloe dated James Harden. Khloe hasn't opened up too much about this relationship, although an episode of Kocktails With Khloe gave us a sneak peek into her thoughts.
"I just don’t want to put up with people that, you want to be monogamous, but you’re not monogamous.”
Ouch. As The Box Houston reports, Khloe's claims about James being less-than-honorable put the #EndStamp on this relationship. We'd basically forgotten about this guy.
19 Risky Basketball Player #3 (Tristan Thompson)
Khloe now marches the Hollywood boulevards as a single mom. The phrase itself was used by Kim in March 2019, as Page Six reports. A string of Twitter comments from Khloe has been keeping fans updated. In early March, it was this:
"Tristan is equally to blame but Tristan is the father of my child. Regardless of what he does to me I won’t do that to my daughter. He has been addressing this situation PRIVATELY. If Tristan were to lie publicly about what conspired, then yes I would address him publicly as well."
Elle reports that Khloe has been posting (and deleting) her thoughts freely on Twitter. #Over.
18 #Throwback To Kendall Jenner And Harry Styles
Kendall Jenner seems to spend her life ducking the cameras– with or without a boyfriend. #InYourFace might be the scantily-clad IG pics, but Kendall is different when it comes to relationships. Her current beau Ben Simmons stays well out of sight.
Kendall did once date One Direction's former member, Harry Styles. In 2018, Cosmo reported that Kendall had shared a "secret love letter," and that Harry was likely involved. This pic? It just isn't one that anyone remembers. They seemed happy, though.
17 All The Times It Was #BeyondFrosty Between These Two
It's half the reason we tune in to Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The ups and downs of Kourtney and Scott have shown us love, fights, three babies, and co-parenting.
In 2018, talk of Kourt and Scott wanting a fourth child was enough for Scott to have to "deny" the rumors, as The Metro reports. This man will forever be in Kourtney's life, but let's not say that the vibe isn't frosty. This pic basically took that vibe and threw it to us in a photo.
Kim and Kanye are now a total power couple. They dominate the Met Gala, our screens, our style, and our lives. While Kim seems to have mastered the poker-face Hollywood "look," Kanye still comes with, well, a bit of a face.
Yes, he's launched memes. While Kanye West is mostly misunderstood, he's the love of Kim's life. "Kanye's definitely inspired me to be a little bit more of an individual," This Is Insider quotes Kim saying. This rare pic showed the family (and Kanye's signature expression).
15 'We Would Just Go To These Random Cities. No-One Would Bother Us'
Kylie and Travis don't have the luxury of being able to grab dinner without the world watching. They literally have to escape LA to do so, and even then, they're followed.
"And we would just go to these random cities. We got to not be who we really were. Like, if we were in L.A., I feel like it would've been way different,"
E! News quotes Kylie saying about the rare moments she's felt free as a bird with Travis. The paparazzi snapped them here, but it isn't a pic you'll see on IG.
14 Whatever It Was, It Was Bothering Kim
You don't need to be in the Kardashian inner circle to know that Kim and Kanye have their disagreements. KUWTK shows us this couple arguing it out over tiny things– during Season 15, it was Band-Aids.
"He's stuck on, like, seven," Kim told Larsa Pippen during the same season regarding Kanye wanting seven children. Kim was expecting here (and it seemed like they wanted a kid), but something about the face isn't sending out the calmest vibes. Also, that "old" style. Oh, the nostalgia.
13 Kris Humphries: 'Man, I'm Glad I Got Out When I Did'
Not much is remembered of Kim's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries. Well, except that the short-lived nature of it winds up on "Hollywood's shortest marriages" list. In 2015, Kris Humphries sent out a tweet that's still available to view.
"Man, I'm glad I got out when I did. #Gottadoyou." Not the nicest thing to say about your ex-wife, but we'll assume he had his reasons. This pic? Literally, nobody types this guy's name into the internet. It's all about Kim and Kanye. We found it though, and we've got to say, Kim made us laugh here.
12 Street Appearances Aren't Exactly Frequent With These Two
Kylie Jenner knows what she's doing. She mostly keeps within the gated community of Calabasas, but she will venture out into the streets (when it suits her). This isn't a Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher kind of deal. Outings from Kylie and Travis are likely prepped with glam squads and stylists, but we still love it.
Travis told Rolling Stone that Kylie is "that one." As a father figure, rap icon, and boyfriend to the world's youngest billionaire, as per Forbes, this guy has a lot on his plate. We so dug this pic– come on, look at Kylie's side-eye.
11 Rebound #1: Kourt Dates Younes Bendjima
Kourtney and Younes Bendjima had a decent stretch. With a relationship that lasted around two years, this Tunisian model may have been 24 years old, but he seemed to make a soon-to-be-40 Kourtney happy.
"He was friends with our friends. He would walk in, say hi and shake hands with our security or whatever, but not say hi to us. Then I was like: Why do you hate us?... Once I said that, he literally grabbed my hand and was like: It's five in the morning. We're leaving," ET quotes Kourt saying about meeting Younes.
10 Rebound #2: Kourt Dates Luka Sabbat
From one much younger model to another. Following her 2018 split from Younes, Kourtney embarked on a short-lived relationship with an even younger guy. Luka Sabbat is 21 years old.
"It was a fun fling," People reported as news emerged that the couple had split. Still, we got this street snap of Kourtney and Luka (and we have to say, it isn't sending out the best vibe). Luka fronts Evian, but it looks like it was "glass half-empty" for this relationship. Kourtney appears to be single now.
9 Double Dates, The Early Days
Double dates are the best. We've seen Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas do it with Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas. Throwing us old-school Kardashian vibes (and a young Mason), this pic saw Kim, Kourtney, Kanye, and Scott head into the LA sunshine.
Obviously, Kourt was pregnant here. It was happier times for Kourtney and Scott as they expected, but the relationship came to an end in 2015. By 2018 though, Kourtney was taking holiday vacations with Scott and Sofia Richie in an attempt to make things work all-round.
8 Kendall & Ben Simmons: Low-Key As They Come
Kendall Jenner is currently dating a basketball player who seems to be less of a handful than Tristan Thompson. Ben Simmons isn't a regular on Kendall's IG, but he is spotted in the street with her.
“I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time.”
Speaking to W Magazine about her attitude to men, Kendall added, “I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like: Here’s me and my boyfriend! So it was a thing for a minute because no one ever saw me with a guy."
7 You'd Forgotten About A$AP Rocky, Right?
Kendall's dating portfolio doesn't feel as high-profile as Kylie's, but the rappers are there. It's a thing with this family. Kylie is with Travis Scott. Kim is with Kanye West. Once upon a time, Kendall was dating A$AP Rocky.
“A$AP is feeling a little... hurt and surprised after learning that Kendall has been spending time with Blake Griffin," Girlfriend reported in 2017. This pic comes with an #Unseen, but it's definitely one for the files. Blake and Kendall didn't last either.
6 Travis: 'I Need Her With Me To Operate'
Travis's IG is mostly super-slick shots of his merch, his swag, and his "Astroworld" tour. Kylie herself doesn't feature much, although Stormi does pop her head in from time to time. In 2018, Travis told Rolling Stone:
"I need her with me to operate. She’s that one. People don’t understand how real my girl is. How ill she is. They have assumptions, [stupid] remarks of what they think is going on. Nah, bro."
Just, wow. This guy is serious. His girlfriend isn't a casual deal. She's the mother to his child (and we're waiting for that proposal).
5 And He's Going To Propose 'In A Fire Way– I Gotta Sturdy Up'
"We’ll get married soon. I just gotta sturdy up — I gotta propose in a fire way.” Probably the most quoted line from Travis's Rolling Stone interview. In the latter half of 2018, Kylie started flashing what looked like a giant engagement ring. It's still there.
Kylie hasn't announced an engagement. Nor has Travis. To be fair, the family is probably too busy dealing with the Tristan, Jordyn, and Khloe mess. We have it on good authority, though. Travis will propose. This pic just made us melt.
4 Literally, Always Awkward With These Two
It's gotten awkward. As the years passed, Kourtney and Scott's rocky relationship took a turn for the worse. In 2015, this former couple called it quits. Sofia Richie arrived and Kourtney still might not be handling it too well, but she's trying her best.
Just look at him. Well, her too. Kourtney was rocking a baby bump in this pic, but nobody was chronicling the (admittedly) awesome style. They look like the most awkward couple ever. "On edge" basically sums this up, and we're so glad we dug deep enough to find this moment.
3 Marriages Aren't Always Smooth Sailing
Marriages are hard work. Victoria Beckham has admitted it, and Kim is no different. Kanye even interferes with Kim's greatest love. You probably don't need us to tell you that's it's makeup. As The Independent quotes Kim saying:
"My husband loves me without make-up so... I would wear makeup 24/7 if I could, but he likes me without it." Pretty demanding, come to think of it. The KKW Beauty founder is rarely seen without a full face, but for Kanye, she'll forego it. Quite what was happening here, we don't know, but the pic is priceless.
2 For A Show That's #Cameras, This Is Actually Pretty Rare
"I think reality TV is just a part of our life and it follows our life," Baby Gaga reports Scott Disick saying about life since KUWTK. Agreeing to be on the show basically means this. While the camera's presence is something we're exposed to all the time, actually seeing the crew in action is pretty rare.
Scott called the whole thing "second nature." Honestly, we're still not sure how a mother carrying her kids can pull off sweeping glam all the time. This woman is literally amazing.
1 Is This Guy Gonna Pop The Question, Or What?
Tick, tock. Tick, tock. Stormi turned one in February 2018. She got a giant bash, a Chanel bag from DJ Khaled, and what looked like a zillion teddy bears on IG. What this little girl still doesn't have is two married parents.
We kind of want it more than she likely does (Stormi is, after all, a bit young to understand the concept of marriage). Scott reassured Rolling Stone that he will propose, but seriously. What is the guy waiting for?
