Why Kylie Jenner Reportedly Feels So ‘Secure’ and ‘Happy’ Dating Timothée Chalamet

Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet are making out in public—and doing very well in private, a source told Entertainment Tonight.

The insider explained that Jenner and Chalamet went public at Beyoncé’s concert on September 4 “because she is confident and secure in their relationship. [She] feels like she can be herself with him [and] really likes that.”

The source added that Jenner and Chalamet “also connect on a deep level,” explaining that “Timothée is also a family man, and they relate to each other about that. Kylie’s friends and family think Timothée is great and love seeing her happy.”

Notably, less than a day after Entertainment Tonight published the report, TMZ ran video of paparazzi asking Chalamet about Jenner. He said nothing to the questions but did smile.

The intel from Entertainment Tonight’s source is similar to what a source told People on September 5. That insider described their relationship as being “fun and uncomplicated.”

“They have been seeing each other for six months now,” People’s source said. “He makes Kylie happy. He has his own life and understands that Kylie needs to prioritize her kids [Stormi, 5, and Aire, 1, whom she shares with ex-boyfriend Travis Scott]. He is charming, very loving, and protective of Kylie. She likes that he is a private guy.”

Despite showing PDA at fashion week, Beyoncé’s concert, and the US Open this month, Jenner and Chalamet have never spoken about their relationship or posted couple photos themselves.
