Kylie Jenner and Tyga are NOT on the “verge of breaking up,” despite a sensational new report. Gossip Cop can debunk the story, which twists recent interactions between the couple to make them seem like relationship trouble. It’s misleading and not true.

On Monday, a certain webloid breathlessly announced, “Ever since ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ reality superstar turned 18, her life has gotten quite busy and a source close to the Kardashian clan tells exclusively that the once happy low-key couple are ‘at each other’s throats’ over Jenner’s exploding career.”

“Kylie and Tyga have been bickering non-stop lately. It is to the point where it is almost annoying to be around them because they create such an awkward situation,” a so-called “source” claims to the site. As proof of supposed issues, Radar writes “the couple looked less than thrilled to be together” recently, and that “Kylie recently posted a Snapchat video calling her boyfriend ‘mean.'”

Of course, RadarOnline is basing the stars’ supposed unhappiness on a photo taken by paparazzi as they were being followed by photographers. Few people would appear “thrilled” in such a situation. The webloid similarly fails to give context for Kylie’s “mean” comment, and doesn’t mention the playful back-and-forth, not to mention PDA, that fills Jenner’s Snapchat.

What does any of that have to do with Jenner’s career? It seems the outlet decided to throw a bunch of angles together, and quotes its source as adding, “Kylie has told her family that Tyga does not approve of the way her career is going and he thinks that she is overexposing herself. But Kylie does not want Tyga’s advice any more when it comes to her career and tells him to worry about his own career and stop trying to meddle in hers.”

If all of this sounds like sensationalized and made-up drama, that’s because it is. RadarOnline can’t even commit to its main claim that Tyga and Jenner are headed for a split. Instead, the site covers its butt by saying it could happen “IF things do not change” and “IF things keep going the way they are” (emphasis added).

That way, when no breakup happens, RadarOnline can run a follow-up story about how one of them changed to save the relationship. It’s all very deceitful. Jenner and Tyga have been very upfront with their relationship lately, but RadarOnline is cherry-picking moments from their lives to fit a tabloid narrative that has little to do with reality.
