Someone ‘Close’ to Kylie Jenner Tested Positive for Coronavirus

When Keeping Up with the Kardashians returns in September, it’s going to focus in part on the coronavirus pandemic. A recently released trailer for the show’s 19th season gives a closer look at how the famous family has been affected by the outbreak, which has impacted over 2 million people globally and forced people inside of their homes. At one point in the clip, Kylie Jenner even reveals that someone in her inner circle has been affected by the disease.

Watch the trailer for ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’

Around the 0:40 mark, Kim Kardashian West briefly talks about how serious the pandemic has become before a voiceover comes on about Los Angeles’ stay-at-home order, which began on March 19.

Clips are then shown of the family practicing social distancing in their homes. One shows Scott Disick talking about the stress of the pandemic while another shows Kris Jenner crying on the phone and telling Khloé Kardashian how much she misses her.

Elsewhere in the trailer, Jenner reveals that someone “close” to her caught the coronavirus, but she did not say names.

“It’s just scary when someone so close to home has tested positive,” she said.

More on the coronavirus pandemic

In the weeks since the coronavirus started spreading within the United States, a number of celebrities have caught the disease, including Tom Hanks, Madonna, and Babyface.

As the pandemic continues, Jenner has reportedly been holed up in her house with her ex-boyfriend Travis Scott and their daughter, Stormi Webster. She has posted plenty of pictures of them hanging around the house over the past few weeks. She has, however, gone out a couple of times, including on Easter when she and Scott reportedly went to dinner at Kris Jenner’s home in Palm Springs.

Speaking about her decision to leave home during the outbreak, a source told E! News: “It was raining in Los Angeles and they were hoping for some sunshine.”

“It was a nice change of scenery and they made it special for Stormi,” the source continued. “It was very different from their traditional big family Easter celebrations, but everyone Zoomed and stayed connected.”

The pandemic has reportedly been tough on the Kardashian-Jenner family

Given how close they are, it has reportedly been really hard for the Kardashian-Jenners to stay away from each other. But it helps that Jenner has company.

“Kylie really misses her sisters and her nieces and nephews, but its been nice having Travis around so much,” the insider went on. “He has been at Kylie’s house and they have been doing a lot of family stuff.”

As far as their relationship, the source also pointed out that they are not back together. The couple split in September 2019 after about two and a half years together and are now focusing on maintaining a healthy co-parenting relationship.

“Things are good between Kylie and Travis. They are co-parenting and in a groove. They love being a family together and watching Stormi who constantly amazes them and make them laugh. They love their little family life together.”

Fans will get a closer look at Jenner’s life when Keeping Up with the Kardashians returns in September. Stay tuned.
