Travis Scott had secret affair with Rihanna before dating Kylie Jenner, was furious when romance was exposed
The 28-year-old rapper dated Rihanna before Kylie Jenner came into his life and they welcomed daughter Stormi together in 2018
A journalist has recently revealed that Kylie Jenner's ex Travis Scott was furious when his secret romance with Rihanna was leaked online. The 28-year-old rapper dated Rihanna before Kylie came into his life and they welcomed daughter Stormi together in 2018.
Journalist Lawrence Schlossman who exposed the secret relationship online in 2015 said Travis was fuming after the news because he did not want to make the relationship public. Speaking on the Throwing Fits podcast, Schlossman gave details about it to his co-host James Harris and journalist Jonah Weiner and told them Scott was not really happy about the world finding out he was dating the ‘Good Girl Gone Bad’ singer.
Lawrence, the former editor of Complex, said in the podcast, "I broke the news about him and Rihanna, which they told me not to do. Apparently, what [Complex editor Joe] LaPuma, our boy Joe The Puma, told me was that it hurt Complex's relationship with Travis. This was in 2015/16 I wrote this. But apparently, for the next couple of years, he would complain about that."
"It's not because he's like, 'Don't tell anyone I'm smashing Rihanna'. It's because Rihanna's like, 'Don’t tell anyone that I'm smashing Travis Scott, please'. [It's] obviously embarrassing as f**k," he added. Lawrence had written about the two-hour conversation he'd had with Scott about "all the controversy, criticism and rumors surrounding his every move".
And during that conversation as Lawrence said, the 'Astroworld' singer described Rihanna as his "muse" and called her "inspiring" and "creative". But when it came to going public about the relationship, the journalist said Scott told him not to "do [me] like that, man". According to reports, Scott and the 32-year-old singer met in 2013 at the opening ceremony runway show of New York Fashion Week. After that, they went on to work together, including Scott collaborating with her for her 2015' album 'B***h Better Have My Money'.
The two were also snapped together several times. The duo was seen together at the Vogue 95th anniversary party in Paris in 2015, where they were also joined by Kanye West, husband of Kim Kardashian, and brother-in-law of Kylie. Not only this, but Scott also appeared in a photoshoot with Rihanna to advertise her Fenty collaboration with Puma.
However, two years later, Kylie and Scott reportedly started dating each other, and in 2018 they welcomed their daughter, Stormi, who is now two years old. At the time of her pregnancy, the 22-year-old lip mogul kept the news out of the spotlight extremely well as she did not step out of home for months. In March, when most of the world was starting to adjust in the coronavirus lockdown, the beauty maven said she was already used to it.
"I hope everyone is feeling well! It's so important right now to self-quarantine to ensure we aren't endangering ourselves or anyone who can't handle this virus. I'm on day 8. My pregnancy prepared me for this. I didn't leave the house for months," Jenner said in an Instagram post at the time. Kylie and Scott reportedly broke up in October 2019, but amid the pandemic, both are quarantining together with Stormi. They have also reportedly insisted that they are just friends and co-parenting their daughter.
