Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott skipped the the Billboard Music Awards. It would have been their first big red carpet since the Grammys but the two were not photographed on the red carpet nor in the audience.
The night is still momentous for Scott. He is nominated for Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Rap Artist, Top Male Rap Artist, Top Rap Tour, Top Billboard 200 Album, and Top Rap Album.
The couple’s absence isn’t wholly surprising: They celebrated Travis Scott’s birthday in Los Angeles the night before with a late-night party. Jenner posted on her Instagram Story earlier that day that she was sick but “still gonna go hard for my baby.” And Scott is scheduled to perform in Dallas on May 3, so he may be preparing for that or en route there already.
Had Jenner and Scott gone to the Billboard Music Awards, it would have been a significant moment for Jenner and Scott’s relationship. The two were reportedly on shaky ground in March, and the BBMAS would have been their first industry event since that news broke.
TMZ was the first outlet to report that Jenner had allegedly accused Scott of cheating on her after finding “a number of what she deemed ‘overly friendly’ [Instagram] DMs between him and several women with whom he’d been chatting,” on his phone.
Jenner saw that as “evidence” to back her accusations of his infidelity, TMZ reported. According to the outlet’s sources, Jenner was “incredibly pissed” about the messages initially.
But time—and a Mexican vacation—healed things between them.
An insider told Us Weekly at the end of April that Jenner herself didn’t take the cheating rumors seriously. “Kylie is considering the cheating rumors about Travis to be ‘white noise’ and she knows everyone is always trying to get a rise out of her and her family,” the source said. “Her and Travis are in a great place and she has no intention of breaking things off with him.”
Jenner seemed to stoke secret marriage rumors last week when she threw an Avengers birthday party for him with a cake that read “Husband.”
