Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner have always been close, with the two youngest sisters of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan even working together professionally on a clothing line as well as enjoying a friendship. Now, with Kylie involved in a new romance, there’s the inevitable question of whether Kendall approves. And a new report provides the answer of how the older Jenner sister reportedly feels about her sibling’s new boyfriend Travis Scott.
As the romantic relationship between Kylie and Travis blossoms, Kendall “couldn’t be more proud of them,” reported Hollywood Life. Kendall reportedly has compared Scott to Tyga, and Jenner “actually thinks that Travis is a much better fit for Kylie than Tyga was,” according to a source quoted by Hollywood Life.
Kendall, 21, reportedly has gone beyond feeling “proud” of her 19-year-old sister to forming a friendship with Travis, 25. That platonic relationship adds to the alleged reasons why Jenner feels that Scott is the perfect choice for Kylie.
And when Kendall’s relationship with Tyga, 27, is compared to how she gets along with Travis, she “clicks” with Scott much more than Kylie’s ex ever did, according to the insider.
“Kendall vibes with Travis way more than she ever did with Tyga.”
Jenner feels that Scott is “super cool and talented,” noted the source, who added that Kendall “has a lot of respect” for Travis.
“She definitely thinks her sister upgraded,” summed up the insider. “She likes Kylie better with Travis, their relationship just seems so much more mature.”
With all the alleged comparisons between Scott and Tyga taking place, the source took some time to clarify that Jenner never actively “disliked Tyga” when Kylie was dating her ex-boyfriend. But although the 21-year-old supermodel didn’t dislike him, she also reportedly was not a fan of Tyga and Kylie as a couple. The insider explained that Jenner didn’t have much fun when she was around Kylie and her ex.
“[Kendall] never really liked Kylie and Tyga together, they weren’t fun to be around.”
In addition to allegedly not having fun with Kylie and Tyga, Jenner reportedly felt somewhat “distant” from her younger sister when she was involved in a romantic relationship with Tyga. That emotional distance reportedly made the Jenner sisters’ own relationship stressful.
“That put some stress on their relationship because Tyga and Kylie were attached at the hip, he was like her sister’s shadow and it drove Kendall nuts,” commented the insider. “Now that he’s out of the picture, that stress is gone.”
When it comes to what the outside world can learn about Kendall’s and Travis’ relationship as platonic pals, Jenner even offered up a clue recently. She shared a picture of herself in a pool with Scott on Instagram. Just in case there was any doubt, Kendall even tagged Travis’ name to make it clear.
Scott and Kylie recently were seen in Florida, and Hollywood Life pointed out that in the wake of the news that Kendall approves of their relationship, “there is a good chance that Kendall decided to join them.”
The photo that Jenner posted of herself poolside caused some initial confusion, with speculation about whether that “mystery man” covering his face with a towel was her beau ASAP Rocky, noted X-17.
However, the discovery that Kendall had tagged Kylie’s new boyfriend Travis cleared up the mystery. The photo of Jenner with Scott was interpreted by some as showing how close Travis has become to the entire Keeping Up with the Kardashians clan.
Analyzing the photo of Jenner with Travis, Perez Hilton even took it one step further. Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, was famously close to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians family. But Disick recently has been having some issues that resulted in the reality TV family distancing themselves from Kourtney’s baby daddy.
Consequently, Perez speculated that the photo of Kendall with Kylie’s new boyfriend indicated that Travis has become the “new Scott Disick.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Travis recently was rumored to have even compared the Jenner sisters’ sexy bedroom skills after reportedly having been involved with first Kendall and then Kylie. And in another comparison to Scott Disick, the hip-hop artist’s real goal reportedly is to trade up to Kourtney Kardashian. No word yet on how Disick might feel about that alleged plot.
