Kylie, 22, and Drake, 33, been “flirting for years,” as another source exclusively told In Touch. But the two of them have more recently been “seeing each other romantically” — since her split from Travis Scott, Us Weekly reported.
The duo was seen spending “a lot of time” together at his birthday party held at Goya Studios in Los Angeles in October and “seemed to be enjoying each other’s company,” an insider revealed to Us. “They were joking around, and Kylie was laughing. There seemed to be an attraction there,” the source dished.
The truth is, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the performer could have sparked a romance even earlier. “They nearly became an item eight months ago,” a source exclusively told 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.”
In particular, her brother-in-law, Kanye West, has had a rather tumultuous relationship with the fellow rapper. But it sounds like they’ve mended fences. During an interview with Zane Lowe on Apple Music’s Beats 1 on October 24, Kanye, 42, said, “You’ve gotta know, there’s a lineage to Jay to Ye to Drake. It’s, you know, this person is your idol, then you get to know him, then you be friends, then you turn to frenemies, then you turn to enemies, and then you gotta bring back the positive energy.”
He noted that the “Hotline Bling” singer now lives down the street from him and said, “You cannot be of service to God and be mad at your brother next door … I want all blessings for Drake. I’m an ordained minister, if he want [sic] me to like, when he finally get [sic] married I’ll show up and be like, ‘We’ve had our ups and downs!’”
One person who is not particularly pleased by the news? Her ex and baby daddy, Travis, 28. “He’s not happy about the budding romance at all,” a source told In Touch exclusively. However, “Kylie isn’t worried about his feelings at this point,” the insider added. “Kylie has had a crush on Drake since she was a kid, and now he’s sexier than ever. The timing for them is finally right.” Hey — at least the rest of the people in her life seem to like them together!
