A new report claims Kylie Jenner is “devastated” she won’t be spending New Year’s Eve with Travis Scott. But Gossip Cop can confirm this is made-up, just like a similar story that came hours before it. Allow us to explain.
On Thursday night, HollywoodLife purported to have an “exclusive” in which it alleged Jenner was “pleading” with Scott to ditch a gig in Las Vegas and spend New Year’s Eve with her. As Gossip Cop pointed out, even if the rapper did bail on Sin City, that wouldn’t mean they’d be together for the holiday. Scott is booked to perform at Liv nightclub at the Fontainbleau in Miami on New Year’s Eve.
Now less than 12 hours after Gossip Cop‘s bust, in which we pointed out the illogicality and illegitimately of that tale, HollywoodLies, as it’s nicknamed, has concocted a new article for Friday morning that attempts to course-correct its faulty narrative. The storyline, however, is still lacking common sense and real sources. According to this new post, a so-called “insider” is claiming, “Kylie really wishes that [Travis] wasn’t doing this show in Miami.”
“She’s not complaining too much though,” continues this supposed source, even though mere hours ago the site insisted she was “pleading” with him over the situation. Now the outlet has its alleged tipster contending Jenner is “trying to pressure him to go straight from the stage to a private jet and fly home to be with her. She hates the idea of sleeping without him, especially on New Year’s Eve.”
But even the webloid acknowledges this is a “tall order,” given the flight time from Florida to California. As Gossip Cop already reported, the event in which Scott is taking part is slated to start at 9 p.m. Eastern. Ostensibly, it won’t end until after midnight. Roughly six hours of flying time would have him back in L.A. at 6:30 a.m. Eastern, 3:30 a.m. Pacific at the earliest. At that point, New Year’s Eve has long come and gone. It makes little sense then to claim Jenner is trying to get Scott home to go to bed with her on New Year’s Eve.
As for whether she’s “devastated” they won’t be together, obviously she would prefer to have her boyfriend by her side when the clock strikes midnight. But Jenner also knows that not only does Scott need to fulfill his professional obligations, just as she does hers, this year-end concert will put a pretty penny in his pocket. That’s not exactly something to cry about. Lastly, we must repeat what we’ve been forced to say ad nauseam since the pair started dating earlier this year: No one in Jenner’s inner circle is discussing her feelings with HollywoodLies. Period.
Gossip Cop believes there to be elements of truth, but the story is ultimately misleading.
