Did Kris Jenner just accidentally reveal the identity of her daughter Kendall Jenner’s boyfriend? Following months of rumors regarding Kendall’s relationship with Lewis Hamilton, Kris Jenner took to Instagram, where she called Lewis “family.”
“Congratulations @lewishamilton!!!!” Kris Jenner wrote on October 26. “We are soooo proud of you!!!!!! #champion #x3 #family #biggestdayofhislife.”
Right away, Kris Jenner’s followers were confused by why she would label Hamilton “family” if they weren’t related. However, if the rumors are true, she could have mistakenly outed her daughter’s relationship status.

Kris Jenner’s daughter has been romantically linked to Hamilton for the last several weeks, and while Hamilton claims they are just friends, they could be more.

Last month, Hamilton attempted to defuse the ongoing buzz surrounding his relationship with Kendall.
“Me and Kendall have been friends for a while, so we’re just friends,” Hamilton told E! News at the Opening Ceremony Spring 2016 fashion show during New York Fashion Week. “She’s doing incredible, she’s very focused, very level-headed, and she’s just—for such a young woman, she’s very grown up.”
In other Kris Jenner news, the reality star and mother of the Kardashian/Jenner clan, is reportedly at odds with her oldest daughter, Kourtney, due to her allegedly secret phone calls to her ex-boyfriend, Scott Disick, who is currently receiving treatment at a Malibu, California, rehab facility for issues with substance abuse.
“Kourtney cannot even believe that [Kris Jenner] still talks to Scott after everything that has gone down,” an insider told Radar Online on October 26. “She is outraged that [Kris Jenner] even allows Scott camera time!”
Over the summer, Kourtney Kardashian and her boyfriend of nine years, Scott Disick, the father of her three children, parted ways after humiliating photos of Disick and his ex-girlfriend, Chloe Bartoli, were shared online. As fans saw on Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 10, Kardashian was devastated by her longtime boyfriend’s betrayal, and despite their having a family, she simply couldn’t continue their relationship at that point.
However, while Kardashian preferred to part ways with her ex, Kris Jenner reportedly wasn’t having it, and in the weeks that followed their split, Disick filmed for the family’s reality show, as has been confirmed with the recently released sneak peek of Season 11.
“[Kris Jenner] wants to make this whole thing drag out as long as possible so that it gets show ratings,” the source told Radar Online. “Kourtney wants Scott 86’d and she is furious that [Kris Jenner] is doing this, [but] some of the family think that Kourtney is failing to see that, without the Scott drama on the show, she really has no plot. It is a double-edged sword.”
For the last couple of seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kris Jenner has been seen as a single woman after splitting from Caitlyn Jenner, who was previously known as her husband, Bruce Jenner. Then, at some point last year, Kris Jenner began dating again, and ever since, she has been in a committed relationship with Corey Gamble. Meanwhile, her children have struggled to adjust to the fact that their former father is now a woman.
During the sneak peek of Season 11, Kendall was shown having a particularly hard time dealing with the issue, and feels she’s been put in the middle of her parents. In one scene, Kendall is seen tearing up as she claims to be torn between the two.
For more Kris Jenner, tune into Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 11 premiering on Sunday, November 15, at 9 p.m. on the E! Network.
