A report claiming Kylie Jenner is “bored” with being a mom is provably untrue. Gossip Cop can bust it. The first-time mother has repeatedly made clear how much she loves her new life with daughter Stormi.

But according to RadarOnline, parenthood is “cramping her teenage lifestyle,” and Jenner “misses her old responsibility-free life.” Of course, there’s a blatant factual error right there. The reality star is no longer a teenager. Jenner is 20 years old, and will be 21 this August. Considering the site couldn’t get her age right, there’s little reason to believe the rest of its contentions are accurate.

The blog goes on to contend that Jenner is “shelling out a fortune on nannies and assistants to help take care” of her infant because she doesn’t want to do it herself. “She wants to go back to her socialite lifestyle,” a so-called “source” is quoted as saying. Continues this supposed snitch, “She wants to be out on the town, hanging with her friends…. She misses the party scene [and] hanging out with her girls until 4 a.m. and not having to do anything the next day.”

The website concludes its article by bringing up debunked rumors that Travis Scott “might not have been Stormi’s father,” amid speculation Jenner’s bodyguard is the baby’s real dad. Chung used Instagram to deny the claims nearly three weeks ago, so it’s odd that this topic is included the story. Then again, the entire report is strange since it’s so easily disproven.

While it’s true there are nannies to provide assistance, which even non-famous families sometimes have, People recently reported in a story on Jenner, Scott and Stormi that “Kylie spends so much time with Stormi,” and is “super proud to be a new mom and is very hands-on.” In fact, in an interview with Evening Standard magazine, Jenner revealed that she wasn’t finding motherhood “challenging.”

“It’s actually been the opposite for me. I feel like it’s just been so amazing, and so much fun,” she said, going on to discuss how she hates even leaving her daughter for work obligations. Jenner said, “It was so hard to leave this morning. I’m like, ‘I’ll be right back, I’m so sorry, I have to leave!’ and she doesn’t even know what’s going on. I think about her all the time, anywhere I am. I would rather be with her or wish she can come everywhere.”

This goes directly against RadarOnline’s narrative, which is about Jenner wanting a “time out.” Furthermore, Jenner took Stormi on vacation with her and Scott to Turks and Caicos only a month ago. If she really wanted to return to a kid-free lifestyle, as alleged, she could’ve left the baby at home with all of the “nannies and assistants.” But that wasn’t the case.

Conclusion: RadarOnline contends Jenner is “bored” with being a mom and wants to have her “old responsibility-free life” back, but the “KUWTK” star herself is on record discussing how she “rather be with” Stormi than anywhere else. People, a reputable publication, has reported Jenner is a “hands-on mom,” and she showed that by taking the infant out of the country with her. Additionally, the site wrongly thinks Jenner would have a “teenage lifestyle” when she’s almost 21 years old. For these reasons, Gossip Cop has concluded the claims in this article are untrue and deserve a zero on our rumor meter.
