KYLIE Jenner’s fans are convinced she went public with her relationship with Timothee Chalamet to draw attention to a big family event.
The 26-year-old was spotted with 27-year-old Timothee last week for the first time since dating rumors began earlier this year.
Kylie, 26, and the Call Me By Your Name actor were spotted getting intimate at a Beyoncé concert in Los Angeles, California last Monday.
Over the weekend, they were once again photographed packing on the PDA together at the US Open for dinner and packing at New York Fashion Week.
Many fans believe there’s a reason why Kylie is suddenly so open about her relationship with her new man, despite months of secrecy.
A fan pointed out the suspicious timing in a popular Kardashian thread, sharing numerous photos of projects that Kylie and her famous family will soon be releasing – the most notable of which is the fourth season of her Hulu series The Kardashians.
Others expressed their thoughts in the comments, with one writing: “I bet the cameras were rolling for the show. “The way Tim looks at the camera is telling,” referring to Kylie and Timothee’s smooch at the Beyoncé show.
A second commented: “Remember when people said they weren’t promoting anything so it must be super real?” Yeah right.”
And others pointed out that the move could be a way to “get people talking” about Timothee’s upcoming film “Wonka,” which has been on hiatus since the writers’ strike.
Although Kylie and Timothee are finally sharing their relationship with the world, fans shouldn’t expect to see the French actor on The Kardashians anytime soon.
A Hollywood insider recently told The US Sun: “Timothee is very careful about his personal behavior in relationships because one stupid mistake can tear down everything he has built.”
“Is he taking a risk by taking Kylie so seriously so quickly?
“Yes, but Timothee has a strong sense of boundaries and is obsessed with managing his reputation.”
The source continued, “I don’t think he’ll appear on the reality show like some of the other Kardashian suitors have, and I don’t think Kylie expects him to.”
“It’s not how he acts.”
The season premiere of “The Kardashians” streams on Hulu on September 28th.
Fans speculated that Kylie and Timothee were together after they were spotted together shortly after Kylie’s split from Travis Scott, 32 – the father of her two children Stormi, five, and Aire, one – in January.
Kylie has also been spotted visiting Timothee’s home in Beverly Hills several times in recent months.
However, sources told The US Sun that Timothee is very focused on his career, even though things are heating up between the two.
“Timothee has spent the last five years doing everything she can to get onto Hollywood’s A-list, and now the focus is on doing everything she can to stay there.”
“He’s trying to build a forty or fifty year career, and for him personally the stakes couldn’t be higher.”
The insider continued: “That’s what connects him and Kylie – they’re two incredibly ambitious people who are finally making some time for their personal lives.”
“Her fans may be crying foul, but people who know her are cheering her on and believe that this relationship is actually standing up and going somewhere.”
“But Timothee has this overwhelming passion to not only be an actor but to be a huge star and he is one of the most competitive people you can meet in this business.
“The danger for Kylie is that if she ever gets in the way of Timothee’s goals, it will all be over. But at the moment things are moving forward at full speed.”
