Kylie Jenner Has Avoided Discussing Timothée Chalamet On “The Kardashians,” And This Report Might Explain Why

Last Friday, Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet were seen together in public for the first time in months, reassuring fans that their relationship is still going strong.

Their recent LA date night marked the first time that the pair — who were first linked in April 2023 — have been seen together since January, when Kylie supported Timothée at the Golden Globe awards where he was nominated for Wonka.

The stretch of time they weren’t seen together left some wondering if they may have quietly called it quits. And the speculation was made all the more intriguing by the fact that Timothée has been entirely left out of The Kardashians.

In case you’ve not been watching, Kylie has not mentioned her boyfriend on the show once — even though the current season began filming in September when she and Timothée were at their most public.

The actor’s absence and no mention of him on the show is notably different than Kylie’s past relationships. Tyga appeared on Keeping Up with the Kardashians numerous times while they were dating between 2014 and 2017. Meanwhile, Kylie’s most recent ex and the father of her two children, Travis Scott, never actually appeared on the show but was often referred to.

Of course, Kylie has a right to privacy, and it’s nothing new for the Jenner sisters to be more low-key on the family’s show. However, it’s intriguing to many that Kylie seemingly avoids acknowledging her relationship with Timothée — both on the show and in interviews.

And now, new reports have shed more light on Kylie’s approach to the romance, claiming that it’s important to her to keep things away from the public eye.

“Kylie is protective of the relationship, but whenever she talks about him, she has a huge smile,” an insider told People off the back of their outing on Friday. “She really likes so many things about him.”

So, with only four episodes left to go before the end of the current season of The Kardashians, something tells me we might not be getting that Timmy cameo after all.
