Kylie Jenner is known for keeping her relationships private despite her high publicity life. Recently, though, Jenner has been unafraid to be caught vulnerable by the paparazzi. Following months of speculation of a fling between Jenner and Wonka actor, Timothee Chalamet, the couple was publicly spotted last week. Jenner was also seen hanging out with Jordyn Woods, years after the scandal, all while working on business ventures with Kylie Cosmetics and Acne Studios.
Jenner's romantic life has been a hot topic for quite some time. Reports of Jenner's romance with Chalamet started back in April with inside sources speaking with TMZ and Jenner's car being spotted at Chalamat's house. The relationship was confirmed when the couple was spotted at Beyonce's Renaissance Tour stop in Los Angeles. After canoodling at the concert, Jenner and Chalamet were seen at dinner in NYC during New York Fashion Week. Most recently, the couple enjoyed the US Open Tennis finals together.

Jenner and Chalamet are reportedly enjoying each other's company and "just having fun." Meanwhile, fans of Chalamet are accusing Kris Jenner of orchestrating the "PR stunt," calling the relationship a hoax. A Chalamet fan account writes, "[Jenner's] people stalking Timmy... has finally paid off and had her primary objective met. Timothée has now played her hand and relented." Other fans support the couple with one writing, "idc kylie jenner and timothee chalamet are actually kinda cute." Jenner has yet to comment on fan's concerns of the romance with Chalamet.
Instead of harping on fans' concerns of her romantic life, Jenner has shifted gears and partnered up with Acne Studios, as the face of their Fall Winter 2023 denim collection. The campaign promotions, photographed by Carlijn Jacobs, is the best Jenner has looked according to fans, as she gets compared to her sister, Kendall Jenner. One X user writes, "It never fails to tickle me how Kylie is a far better model than Kendall," while others urged her to try modeling as a career.

The Acne Studio campaign, however, is the last thing Jenner's in the headlines for. In promotion for the campaign, Jenner filmed her trip to the Acne Studios store in a Tik Tok video. The part that stuck with the viewers was Jenner's plus one, Jordyn Woods, whom she poses alongside in the video. This comes two months after Jenner was caught by paparazzi out at dinner with her previously estranged best friend, four years following the Tristan Thompson scandal that left Woods shunned by the Kardashians.
The reunion has left fans torn, with some celebrating the return of the iconic best friends duo, while others call out Jenner's hypocracy after a tumultuous path with Woods. In 2019, at the height of the scandal, Khloe Kardashian took to X to address Woods, writing, "You ARE the reason my family broke up." Kardashian, however, continued her relationship with Thompson while Woods was publicly ridiculed.
Jenner, although mass-unfollowing Woods, clarified later that she did not hold a grudge against Woods. Alas, fans believe that Woods should protect herself against the Kardashians, with one writing, "I still can’t believe grown ass women in their late 30s/early 40s were dragging a 21-year-old like that." According to TMZ, the duo has been hanging out again for over a year and although the new outings might be a shock to fans, they're nothing new for Jenner and Woods.

Kylie Cosmetics Concealer
Once again ignoring fan concerns, Jenner is focusing on launching a new line of concealers for Kylie Cosmetics. Jenner unveiled the product through a promotional ad on her social media, rocking a no-makeup-makeup look with the concealer and not much more. The look is quite contrary from Jenner's usual done-up look and fans are calling it the "new era of Kylie."
The new product comes two weeks after reports of Jenner's desire to buy back full ownership of Kylie Cosmetics. Jenner previously sold 51% of the brand to Coty for $600 million in 2020. Now, Jenner is looking to buy back her brand and have full creative control, according to Fortune. The concealer is just the first step for Jenner to rebuild Kylie Cosmetics, which was once worth $1.2 billion.
Jenner, with her many business ventures from makeup to fashion, and her very public friendships and romances, definitely seems to be entering a new era. Jenner, who recently revealed that she sees herself as an outcast the celebrity world, seems to finally being settling into life with paparazzi cameras around. Jenner seems to care less about the cameras more than ever while still putting her business first.
