Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet Might Actually Be Dating

I don’t know how to say this kindly, so I’ll just spit it out: It seems that Timothée Chalamet and Kylie Jenner may actually be dating. Following a flurry of rumors and the discreet appearance of Kylie’s car in Timothée’s driveway (wink wink), Kymothée has been photographed hanging out together at a barbecue with their families. Which begs the question: Is everyone okay?

News of this ungodly union started as a rumor courtesy of DeuxMoi, where chaotic celebrity gossip goes to thrive. DeuxMoi posted an anonymous tip that claimed “multiple sources have told me that Timmy C has a new girl…Kylie Jenner. ⚰️⚰️.”

“⚰️⚰️” is correct. DeuxMoi posted a few follow-ups, with one contributor saying the two have been dating since at least Paris Fashion Week and another claiming they’re going to Coachella together. According to “Page Six,” Kylie and Timmy were also both present at a large group dinner with (sorry) Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny in addition to Zack Bia and Russell Westbrook.

Amid the chatter, a video of Chalamet and Jenner interacting at Paris Fashion Week has resurfaced, which at the very least served as evidence that they had met:

In April, we were presented with a shred of truth that appears to support these rumors: According to TMZ, Kylie’s car was spotted pulling up to Timothée’s house in Beverly Hills. They did not appear at the first weekend of Coachella together, but a “source” informed Entertainment Tonight that Kylie and Timmy were indeed “keeping things casual,” “enjoying hanging out,” and “seeing where it goes.” Why does that sound like the way Timmy’s Lady Bird character would define a relationship?

Anyway, Kylie is reportedly finding this fling “really fun” and “new and exciting.” Apparently, she decided against debuting as a couple at Coachella because she wanted to “chill and have fun with her friends.”

Since then, things seem to have gotten more serious. Sometime in May, following another car sighting in Timothée’s garage, “Page Six” managed to capture some very blurry footage of Kylie and Kendall joining Timothée and his sister, Pauline Chalamet, at a backyard barbecue. The tabloid also claimed these two have been hanging out “upwards of six days a week,” getting coffee, and working out together.

Still, even considering the possibility of this relationship has broken me in mind and spirit. I had previously thought these two existed in entirely separate galaxies of Hollywood, orbiting around their respective suns (Kris Jenner and Tilda Swinton) but never intersecting. Is this what Timmy meant when he said societal collapse is in the air? I can’t help but suspect that, much like Cats, this jarring combination of famouses is a harbinger of something terrible.

I’m not alone in this feeling. Timmy’s biggest fan, the internet, has reacted to the gossip with appropriate distress:
