Why Some Fans Think Kylie Jenner and Drake’s Rumored Relationship Is a PR Stunt

After a long relationship (at least by Kardashian standards), Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have called it quits. Now it appears that she’s moved on with rapper Drake.

But some believe this could all be just an elaborate PR stunt, and there’s some evidence to back that up. Here are the details of their new relationship and what it could mean for Kardashian-Jenner fans. 

Are Kylie Jenner and Drake dating?

Since Jenner officially broke it off with Scott last month, she’s been spending a lot of time with Drake. First, Jenner attended Drake’s 33rd birthday party, and then she was also seen at Drake’s Halloween party. A source for US Weekly said the two “spent a lot of time talking to each other” at his birthday. Another source for People said Jenner stayed “super late” at the second party. 

Of course, attending parties doesn’t prove that they’re dating. It really only shows that they’re good friends. However, everyone that’s seen the two together confirms that there’s something romantic between them, based on the way they interact.

Most sources seem to be of the opinion that they’re spending a lot of time together and headed towards a romantic relationship, but they’re not there yet. But then there’s another group of people that believe the whole thing is made up for attention — even Jenner’s breakup with Scott. 

Did Kylie Jenner really break up with Travis Scott?

The Kardashians have been known to manufacturer fake drama for attention. With the recent release of new music from Scott, many fans are wondering if the split could be another example of this. 

Some point the fact that the drama from Tristan Thompson cheating with Jenner’s ex BFF, Jordyn Woods has just begun to die down. So a breakup between Jenner and Scott could become the next plot point on new Keep Up With the Kardashian episodes. 

Twitter users pointed to Kris Jenner as the responsible party. One fan said: “My thoughts on Kylie & Travis – His album drops on Friday, common [sic] Kris Jenner works in mysterious ways.”

Another wrote: “Kris Jenner said that the Jordyn Woods situation was dying down and they needed more content for KUWTK so she told Kylie to break up with Travis Scott.”

At this point, we’ll have to wait to find out if Jenner and Scott decide to get back together or go their separate ways for good. If they do continue their relationship, it could be evidence that the split was manufactured.

Because of their history, fans don’t seem to trust anything the Kardashians do. They’re still guessing if the breakup could be fake, but now fans are also assuming Jenner’s flirting with Drake could also be a stunt. 

Regardless of if the break up is true, the Jenner and Drake relationship would give more dimension to the storyline on future Keeping Up With the Kardashians episodes. It’s possible that Jenner knew it would be easy to draw attention after her split, simply by attending Drake’s parties. It may not even be for the reality show. She could be trying to make Scott jealous. 

Unfortunately, there’s no way to tell whether any of this is real emotion or a PR stunt. The only thing we can do is wait to see if it lasts.

If Drake and Jenner really are attracted to each other, it will eventually become public. If nothing happens between them going forward, then it could go either way and we’ll never know if it’s fake. Whatever happens, we just hope that Jenner eventually finds out what will make her and daughter Stormi happy.
