Chalamet and Jenner’s History
While Kylie Jenner and Timothée Chalamet have never been publicly confirmed as a couple, romance rumors began swirling in 2019 when they were spotted attending the same New York Fashion Week after-party. At the time, sources maintained they were just friends.
This year, however, their body language at the Christmas Eve bash indicated something more intimate.
