Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet have been one of Hollywood’s most secretive couples to date.
Though romantic rumors began plaguing the two in April, the cosmetics mogul and the actor did not make a known public appearance together until September. Still, multiple reputable outlets have reported on the duo’s relationship, with some describing it as “casual” but also “new and exciting.”
Ahead, see everything we know.

At the Los Angeles premiere of Wonka, Chalamet’s latest film, Jenner and her mom, Kris Jenner, skip the red carpet and sneak into the Regency Village Theatre after the film’s opening credits, according to a source for People.
“Kylie and Timothée have been doing really well,” another insider tells Entertainment Tonight. “Even though Kylie has so many of her own commitments, she is very proud of Timothée and wants to be there for him and support him,” the source adds. “Timothée is equally supportive of Kylie and admires her strong work ethic and how committed she is as a mom.”

The “incredibly happy” couple are both “supportive” of each other’s careers, the insider explains to the outlet. “They both try to attend important events for each other.”
In particular, Chalamet is “in awe of everything she is accomplishing” and “especially thinks she is an amazing mom.”
“He is very good for Kylie,” the source continues. “Since dating him, she seems very content, relaxed, and focused. Her family loves him.”

In an interview with GQ, Chalamet speaks about his wish to lead a private life while continuing to have a career in Hollywood and date one of the most famous women on the planet. At one point, GQ’s Daniel Riley jokingly tells Chalamet that if he really wanted to be left alone, he would not necessarily choose to spend time with one of the four most-followed people on Instagram. At that, the actor laughs and says, “This reminds me of that recent South Park episode with the Worldwide Privacy Tour.” The episode parodies Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, with the couple traveling around the world demanding privacy. “Sometimes, people are going to be hella confused when you say you’re trying to live a private life.”
Chalamet adds that despite his fame, he works hard to protect his humanity and stay grounded. “You’ve got to have the experiences in your personal life that are usable to you,” he says. “The experiential rush of my career taking off was so new to me that those were the experiences that were feeding my work for a while. But you’ve got to have real experiences. Human experiences. You’ve got to fall in love, you’ve got to be bored.”

The source adds, “Kylie is playing it casual, but her friends know this must sting. Timothée was the first guy she really spent time with after splitting from Travis [Scott]. She even introduced him to her family.”
However, sources for TMZ speak out against the rumors.
The outlet notes that, though the couple have yet to make a public appearance together, “everything is cool between the two [and] they’re still an item.” One insider says, “Any reports that say otherwise are false,” and further warned fans “not to believe everything they read.”

[Their relationship is] not serious,” the insider adds.
“They are becoming more comfortable with each other, but Kylie wants to take things day by day and see where it goes,” says the ET source. “Her family thinks it’s great that Kylie is doing her thing and they are supportive.”
“Timothée loves that Kylie is such a hands-on mom and a boss,” the insider continues. “He appreciates her confidence and thinks she’s incredibly beautiful.”
The source adds that Jenner’s ex, Travis Scott, hasn’t been happy with the new relationship but is putting co-parenting first. “Travis is not thrilled about Kylie moving on, but they are still cordial and focused on co-parenting and being the best parents they can be.”

It’s new and exciting for Kylie and she’s having a lot of fun.”
Though some fans speculated that the two would go public during Coachella, the insider explained why that didn’t happen: “Kylie decided she didn’t want to make things public with Timothée this past weekend at Coachella and really just wanted to chill and have fun with her friends.”
The source additionally noted that big sister Kendall Jenner might have helped orchestrate their relationship. “Timothée is also friends with Kendall, so it’s been easy for Kylie to integrate him into her life,” the source said.
April 2023: Romance rumors emerge.
While neither Jenner nor Chalamet have publicly commented on their relationship, dating rumors began to spread in early April. An anonymous tipster first claimed to Deuxmoi that the two had been seeing each other since January. Other tipsters also wrote that the stars were likely to attend Coachella together.
The rumors hit a fever pitch when one of Jenner’s luxury cars, a black Range Rover, was photographed outside of Chalamet’s Beverly Hills home, though the pictures don’t show Jenner or Chalamet. (Chalamet’s home is about an hour away from Jenner’’s lavish Holmby Hills estate, per the outlet.)
There have also been reports that the pair had a low-key date night at Tito’s Tacos in Santa Monica a week before Jenner’s Range Rover was spotted at Chalamet’s house. Per DailyMail.com, Chalamet was seen getting into another of Jenner’s cars, with his own following behind as they reportedly drove to the L.A. taco stand and ate in the back seat.
That same week, a source later confirmed to People that the pair “are hanging out and getting to know each other.”
Another insider told Us Weekly that the rumored couple are still in the early stages of their romance. “Kylie has only hung out with Timothée a couple of times, so things aren’t that serious. However, she’s enjoying getting to know him better and is open to seeing where things go,” the source told the outlet. “Things are very new so it’s hard to tell, but so far she likes what she sees.”
The insider added, “Timothée is a total gentleman and treats [Kylie] with respect. He’s very charming and he makes her laugh, and he’s easy to talk to. He’s not like any of the other guys she’s dated before and although he may not seem like her type, they have really good chemistry.”
January 2023: Kylie and Timothée reportedly meet for the first time.
The two met in-person for the first time when they attended the same Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show in January during Paris Couture Week. A video of them laughing together at the show was published by celebrity gossip Instagram account Deuxmoi.
They also both attended Vanity Fair’s 2023 Oscars after-party in March, but were not seen or photographed together.
January 2023: Kylie splits from her longtime on-and-off boyfriend.
Outlets reported that Jenner broke up with Travis Scott after the holidays in late 2022 or early 2023. The two began dating in 2017 and share two children: daughter Stormi, five, and son Aire Webster, one.
