Exactly one year ago today, a blog falsely claimed Kylie Jenner was dumping Travis Scott because he was being “overbearing and trying to control her entire life.” Gossip Cop debunked the bogus story as soon as it emerged. Time has proven it untrue.

On May 25, 2017, RadarOnline published an article alleging Jenner was “ready to move on” from her boyfriend just months after the birth of their baby daughter Stormi. The main source of contention, according to the outlet, was that the reality star was “feeling totally smothered” by the rapper. A supposed source told the site that Scott “doesn’t give her any freedom” and tells his girlfriend “what she can wear and where she can go.”

The story didn’t make much sense. As we noted at the time it was published, Jenner had just traveled to San Francisco without her boyfriend. Around the same time, several reputable entertainment outlets, including People magazine, noted how the birth of the couple’s daughter Stormi “changed their relationship for the better.” E! Online, whose TV network is home to “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” similarly described Jenner and Scott as being “stronger than ever.”

It was already clear this time last year that the blog’s split story was false, but it’s become even more apparent in the time since. Earlier this month, Jenner and Scott got matching tattoos in honor of the rapper’s 28th birthday. Jenner also bought Scott a Lamborghini for his birthday and threw him an over-the-top bash. Additionally, both the reality star and the rapper frequently flaunt their romance on Instagram.

Unfortunately, the unreliable site didn’t get much better at reporting about the couple in the 12 months since that story. Back in July 2018, Gossip Cop called out the blog for falsely claiming Jenner and Scott’s relationship was “over” after getting into an “epic fight” in New York City. The outlet had zero insight into what the alleged argument was about, but maintained that the reality star kicked her boyfriend out of their hotel room. Just a few days after we debunked the made-up story, the couple went on a weekend getaway to Paris.

Gossip Cop looks back at stories from a year ago to show how the passage of time often discredits false stories. As opposed to dumping her boyfriend last year, it would appear that Jenner’s relationship has only gotten stronger. RadarOnline simply can’t be trusted when it comes to getting accurate news about the couple.
