It may have been Beyoncé’s birthday show at the Renaissance tour on Monday 4 September 2023, but the only thing anyone remembers from that night is the sparks that flew between Timothée Chalamet and Kylie Jenner. After keeping their romance hidden behind closed doors for months, the pair finally stepped out together. One butt grab later, they quite literally broke the internet.
But the question is, why is everyone so surprised by this celebrity pairing? For some of us gen Zers, it feels like the perfect fit—especially when you consider Chalamet’s previous dating history.
One content creator summed it up perfectly in a recent video. The host of Fluently Forward, a celeb gossip and theory podcast, posted a video to her TikTok account shortly after Jenner and Chalamet were spotted canoodling at the Beyoncé show and explained why the duo makes so much sense.
Now, one of the main things we can take from this user’s expert analysis is that the Bones and All actor loves himself a nepo baby. From Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp to Madonna’s offspring Lourdes Leon, the guy has a serious thing for the children of celebrities.
Moreover, Chalamet has also previously had a thing for influencers and models, dating Sarah Talabi back in early 2022. Now, I think we can all agree that Jenner was one of the OG Insta baddies—making her a perfect fit for the actor.
My only slight confusion is in regards to what Jenner is most attracted to in Chalamet. Don’t get me wrong, he’s a stupidly attractive millionaire who has hair to die for and the ability to serenade the entire Kardashian clan in French. However, he definitely doesn’t have any real similarities with any of Jenner’s previous romances—aside from the fact that his first name starts with a T… Tyga, Travis, Timothée. Although, there was that incredible time in Timmy’s life when he pursued a career in rap:
Either way, while shocked, netizens seem genuinely happy for the pair, with a number of fans stating that Jenner has never looked happier. All I can say is that with the devastating recent news of Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner splitting, we could all do with a bit of love in the air right now.
