Karrueche Tran and Travis Scott have found themselves at the center of dating reports this week after the duo was spotted hanging out at a New York Fashion Week event on September 12, but are Tran and Scott really dating?
According to reports, Karrueche Tran and Travis Scott were seen “kissing and hugging” during a VIP event for Vera Wang on Monday, only to further fuel the dating claims after they were seen posing for a photo together during Paper Magazine‘s “Beautiful People” party later that evening, Hollywood Life reports.
While there doesn’t appear to be anything romantic going on between Karrueche and Travis in the photo, it didn’t take long for the dating rumors to spark a debate among fans on social media.
After Baller Alert took to Instagram to share the photo of Karrueche and Travis, fans began debating in the comment section of the duo’s pic over whether or not Scott, who was previously linked to Rihanna last year after the duo was seen cozying up together at the songstress’ New York Fashion Week party in February, and Tran, who ended her longtime relationship with Chris Brown last year, may be dating in order to get back at their former flames.
Despite the speculation, several fans pointed out that neither Travis nor Karrueche actually shared the photo in question on their own social media platforms, thereby seemingly dispelling claims of a romantic relationship between the model and rapper.
To further silence the rumors, Hollywood Life reached out to Karrueche’s manager, Jacob York, to question him about the newly surfaced dating reports for his client, prompting York to personally deny claims of any sort of romantic relationship between Karrueche Tran and Travis Scott.
“Well obviously it’s not true and it’s just a simple pic,” York reportedly told the site in response to the Karrueche and Travis dating rumors.
This isn’t the first time that Karrueche has found herself at the center of dating reports after posing for pics with fellow celebrities during an industry event; last month, Karrueche sparked romance rumors with rapper The Game after the duo were seen snapping photos together at Cassie’s 30th birthday party on August 26.
Despite The Game having personally denied the dating claims earlier this year after name-dropping the model in his single, “All Eyez,” the rapper’s photo with Karrueche instantly sent dating rumors into overdrive while simultaneously sparking rumors of a growing feud between The Game and Tran’s ex, Chris Brown.
Speaking of the dating speculation and rumors of a beef with Chris Brown, The Game previously explained during an interview with Los Angeles’ Real 92.3 radio station that his decision to name-drop Karrueche in “All Eyez” was “just fun and games” and that he and Brown have no animosity towards one another over the dating speculation.
“Chris is a cool guy. I just remember hearing him [shout Karrueche’s name] on [his] song and I thought it was dope, you know what I’m saying? So, when I was doing the song at Storch house, I’m like, I was thinking about doing it in the same vein, but I couldn’t think of what name so I just said the same name because I thought it would be funny,” The Game explained to the site, noting that the track was “just fun and games” and that Karrueche “is a real cool girl.”
Meanwhile, Travis Scott was previously romantically linked to Rihanna earlier this year after he was announced as a guest performer for Rihanna’s “Anti World Tour” that kicked off in March, although the dating rumors quickly came to a halt after Rihanna began fueling romance rumors with Drake upon the release of the duo’s “Work” music video that dropped later that same month.
