It's hard to believe Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott have officially split. The celebrity couple was practically inseparable. Jenner and Scott have been very open about their relationship, talking about it in various magazines and online interviews. But what's shared in public isn't always the full story, because Jenner and Scott have gone their separate ways. I can only imagine how hard it is for all their stans. I hope y'all are doing OK. If not, this might cheer you up: a walk down sweet ol' memory lane with a timeline of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott's relationship.

April-June 2017: Jenner and Scott go on tour together.
Jenner and Scott seemed to really hit it off at Coachella because the makeup mogul decided to spend the rest of the summer with Scott on the road.
"Coachella was one of the stops on his tour. So he said, ‘I'm going back on tour — what do we want to do about this?’ Because we obviously liked each other," Jenner told GQ. This line, which sounds like it was pulled straight out of a Nicholas Sparks movie, was the seed that blossomed into their entire two-year romance.
The then-rumored couple was spotted together on multiple occasions throughout Scott's Birds Eye View tour, like at a Houston Rockets basketball game in Houston, Texas, on April 25 and at Scott's tour stop at Bentley University in Waltham, Massachusetts, on April 29.

Jenner and Scott then took their relationship to the next level with matching ink. On June 12, Jenner revealed she got a small butterfly tattoo on her ankle on Snapchat. NBD, except a few hours later, Scott revealed he got the same tattoo in the same spot. Coincidence? I think not. The new ink seemed more like a visual representation of their evolving relationship.

So, here's how the separation rumors got started. Jenner posted a mirror selfie on Sept. 18, which seemed like no big deal, until eagle-eyed fans found one very small "missing" detail.
In a mirror selfie posted on Aug. 4 in the exact same spot, fans noticed a picture of Scott and Jenner on top of a dresser in her closet. However, the picture was missing in the Sept. 18 snap. This led many fans to question Jenner and Scott's relationship.
However, Jenner seemingly put those rumor to rest by sharing a precious family photo on her fridge next to Stormi's finger painting.
Oct. 1, 2019: Jenner confirms her and Scott's split.
Jenner attended Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's wedding reception alone, reigniting rumors she and Scott may have split. On Oct. 1, she was also reportedly seen leaving a Los Angeles recording studio where her ex Tyga was recording. This, of course, had fans all sorts of confused on where Jenner stood in her relationship with Scott. She later took to Twitter to confirm the split was true and shut down any new relationship rumors involving Tyga.
This walk down memory lane was probably tough for all the Jenner and Scott stans, since the couple seemed to be living the dream together. Their highs were really high, but there is only so much fans know about the lows, and for that reason, the couple needs to do what is best for them and their daughter. A break seems to be the best solution, even if fans don't like it. At least, this commemorative post will always be here if anyone needs it.
