While there’s no denying that Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard is super ripped and attractive AF, the cosmetics mogul is NOT here for stans claiming that her hired help is the father of her newborn daughter. With the side-by-side picture comparisons of Jenner’s daughter Stormi Webster and bodyguard Tim Chung barreling through the Twitterverse, it was only a matter of time before the social media icon hopped onto Instagram to set the record straight.
Kylie Jenner finally responded to daughter Stormi Webster’s paternity controversy
Apparently, the alleged baby daddy responding to his rumored relationship with Jenner wasn’t enough to silence haters who believed that the Lip Kit queen had crept on Travis Scott with a member of her own team.
“I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable,” wrote Chung in a recent Instagram post. “Out of deep respect for Kylie, Travis, their daughter together and their families, I would like to set the record straight that my interactions with Kylie and her family have been limited in strictly a professional capacity only.”
As Jenner built her empire on the backs of multiple social media platforms, there’s no doubt in my mind that she was fully aware of the baby daddy drama train powering full steam ahead despite Chung’s dismissal. Taking matters into her own hands, Jenner hopped onto Instagram to set the record straight for her 108 million followers.
“Stormi’s Parents,” Jenner captioned a picture of herself and boyfriend Travis Scott at the 2018 Met Gala.
While I’ll freely admit that baby Webster’s features DO resemble those of her mother’s bodyguard, no one knows her lineage better than Jenner.
Forced to publicly speak out on an incredibly private matter, it’s definitely time that we cut the new mom some slack and let her ease into her new role free of online harassment and attacks. Shifting from a couple to a young family of three is hard enough for non-celebrities. With the pair already shouldering the added stress of parenting in the public eye, it’s time that everyone backs TF up and gives Jenner and Scott some much-needed space.
