The plot thickens! While Kylie Jenner’s whirlwind romance with Drake has only recently been made public, it turns out the A-list pair has been sneaking around together for quite some time. “They nearly became an item eight months ago,” a source exclusively tells In Touch

“Back in early March, the two had a top-secret dinner date at a trendy Hollywood restaurant and were all over each other,” adds the insider, who also notes that the timing of Kylie and Drake’s steamy rendezvous was hardly coincidental. In fact, that very week, Kylie, 22, accused her now-ex Travis Scott of exchanging salacious DMs with other women on social media.

“Travis Scott vehemently denies he cheated on Kylie,” the entertainer’s rep said in a statement at the time. Fans thought his alleged infidelity was the reason he canceled a show in Buffalo, New York. However, Travis’ camp insisted that wasn’t true. “He canceled one show tonight because he is under the weather.” Even so, Kylie, who shares daughter Stormi Webster with the “SICKO MODE” rapper, 28, wasn’t convinced.  

“She was acting out — that was a revenge hookup,” continues the insider of Kylie and Drake’s tryst. Since then, Kylie and Travis have called it quits — opening up the door for the longtime KUWTK star to pick up where she and Drake left off. “The circumstances never allowed them to be together,” notes the source. “But that’s all changed.”

On October 24, a separate insider told Us Weekly that the newly minted couple was spotted getting cozy at Drake’s 33rd birthday party in L.A. “They seemed to be enjoying each other’s company,” the source dished. “They were joking around and Kylie was laughing. She seemed to be really happy and in a great mood and she and Drake seemed very comfortable with each other. There seemed to be an attraction there.”
