Travis Scott Seemingly Blocked a Twitter User Who Posted About Kylie Jenner’s Rumored New Boyfriend
The Kardashian and Jenner sisters are arguably some of the most famous celebrities in the world, and their dating lives are frequently the subjects of social media criticism and speculation. Each of the five sisters regularly shares their personal lives on their respective social media accounts, especially Kylie Jenner, the youngest of the Kar-Jenner clan who’s also the wealthiest — by far.
Despite regularly posting on Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat, Kylie is typically tight-lipped about one thing in particular: her love life. Kylie’s been involved with several high-profile men, including rapper Travis Scott, the father of her daughter Stormi. The couple has been on-again-off-again since spring 2017 and they seemingly called it quits for good in fall 2019. Rumors have since swirled that the pair got back together, but a photo Kylie recently posted to her Instagram feed with a new man created a whole new wave of gossip.
The Kylie Jenner + Travis Scott story
In a 2018 GQ interview via Insider, Kylie and Travis said that neither of them remembers the specifics of when or where they first met, but they had mutual friends and were in the same circle for a long time. The two hit it off at Coachella in April 2017 and what followed was, by all definitions, a whirlwind romance. They were famously spotted being very affectionate courtside at a 2017 NBA playoff game between the Houston Rockets and the Oklahoma City Thunder just nine days after Coachella, and the couple was inseparable from then on.
People reported that in June 2017, Kylie and Travis got matching butterfly tattoos. We also now know that the couple was already expecting daughter Stormi by then. Kylie — and seemingly, all of her “people” — kept her pregnancy a secret, and Stormi was born on February 1, 2018.
The hot-and-heavy couple split in October 2019, but Kylie assured fans that they were committed to co-parenting and maintaining a friendship for Stormi’s sake. New rumors that Kylie and Travis were back on sparked in March 2020, after a series of Instagram and Snapchat stories suggested that they had been quarantining together during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. True to form, Kylie never confirmed nor denied that she and Travis were together again.
It started with a Tweet
In July 2020, Kylie and Stormi took a post-quarantine vacation to Utah. The getaway was, of course, well-documented on social media, and fans noticed that a very attractive “mystery man” appeared in several of the photos.
Someone posted one of the photos on Twitter with the caption, “Kylie Jenner with her new rumoured boyfriend Bongumusa Mahlaba.” Despite the fact that @lamborghiniboys has just over 1,300 Twitter followers, the picture received more than 148,000 likes and was re-tweeted 29,500 times. Although there were no hashtags or “@” mentions posted with the photo, it caught Travis Scott’s attention.
The rapper retweeted the photo and captioned it “LOL.” the morning after @lamborghiniboys originally posted it. Unfortunately, several tweets from the original thread have since been deleted, so we may never know exactly what transpired. However, it seems that Travis blocked @lamborghiniboys several hours before he retweeted the picture, as we can see in this screenshot. Things that might make you go hmm.
Who’s the mystery man?
As it turns out, @lamborghiniboys got the mystery man’s identity wrong. In fact, no one seems to know where Bongumusa Mahlaba even came from, but the man in the photos isn’t “new” at all. He’s Fai Khadra, a Palestinian model-musician who, according to Screen Rant, was introduced to the family by Kendall Jenner, who he is very good friends with.
This is where things get really interesting. Not only is Khadra Kendall’s BFF, he previously dated Jordyn Woods, the now-arch nemesis of the Kardashian-Jenner family. It’s hard to say whether Kylie and Khadra are actually dating since Kylie likes to play coy about relationships, but the pair have been spotted cozying up together several times since June. Plus, going on what appears to be a vacation together seems serious. Either way, this could get messy.
