Leave it to Kylie Jenner to send the internet into a frenzy, just before the weekend officially began. On Friday, rumors spread that the youngest Kardashian-Jenner sibling was in the hospital. Yet clues that Kylie is not in labor may have been there all along — or in the very least, there are plenty of clear signs now. Obviously, the biggest indicator being that TMZ shut down the Kylie hospital rumors, exclusively citing multiple sources close to her and boyfriend, Travis Scott. (When the rumors broke that Kylie was in the hospital, Bustle reached out to her rep, but did not receive an immediate response.)
Still, TMZ can report something and skeptics on the internet won’t believe it. A day later, and there are still plenty of tweets pouring in about whether Kylie could be giving birth at any moment. Those are the fans who may need to look at these very clues to hopefully set the record straight.
Before diving any deeper, it’s also worth noting that Kylie has not confirmed she’s even pregnant in the first place, nor have the members of the Kardashian-Jenner family, who have repeatedly dodged the question. So with all of that in mind, let’s investigate into all the evidence that settles the “Is Kylie in labor right now?” debate, once and for all.
TMZ’s Report To The Contrary
It’s unclear who exactly their sources are, but this is the biggest sign. The site reported around 6:30 p.m. EST on Friday that “Kylie isn’t due this month, and she hasn’t gone into premature labor.” They said any reports otherwise are “definitely not true.”
Kylie’s BFF Jordyn Was At A Photoshoot
If there’s anyone who would be by her side in that particular moment, it’s Kylie’s loyal best friend, Jordyn Woods. Heck, she even accepted an award on her behalf last month when Kylie couldn’t make it. (Some took that as another pregnancy clue, FYI.) Anyway, Woods posted Instagrams from a photoshoot on Friday afternoon, and you know she would be at the hospital in a heartbeat if Kylie actually was there.
Travis Scott’s Latest Snapchat
No, not that month-old Travis Scott Snapchat that convinced fans he was on his way to the hospital on Friday. Instead, this is one he actually posted on Friday night. It’s quite unclear where he took the photo, but it’s most definitely not a hospital. Maybe this was his way of making his whereabouts clear — or more likely, his way of looking past all the speculation.
Kim Was Out At A Birthday Dinner
Just like Woods, Kim Kardashian would definitely be there for her little sister’s big moment — if it was actually happening. Instead, Kardashian spent her Friday night celebrating a friend’s birthday, along with husband Kanye West, based on a series of Snapchats. It’s likely West would also be at the hospital, if Kylie was. This family couldn’t be closer.
It’s Business As Usual For Kris Jenner
Momager Kris Jenner was posting about Kylie on Instagram on Friday — but not in the way you’d think. Instead, she was saying she’s a #proudmama, because her daughter’s Lip Kits got restocked. If her daughter really was in labor, she might take a break from the promotional posts to focus on what really matters, being there for her potential grandkid.
Kris also shared a teaser for the upcoming Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode on Saturday morning. She hasn’t paused in posting, indicating there aren’t more pressing family matters taking precedence right now.
Kylie Hasn’t Confirmed A Thing
Despite rumors swirling since the fall, Kylie has stayed mum on the topic, only calling out paparazzi for seemingly photoshopping an image to make it look like she had a huge baby bump. Besides that, utter silence.
Same goes for Kylie’s boyfriend, who’s reportedly the father of the rumored baby-to-be. In a Billboard interview recently, Scott avoided talking about Kylie or the pregnancy rumors, simply saying, “I don’t want to talk about that. They’re just guesses. Let them keep fishing.” Sure, neither of those things specifically prove she’s not in labor, but instead, offer a reminder that she may not even be pregnant in the first place.
At the end of the day, fans will cling to any evidence they can. While there are hints galore that Kylie is pregnant, until she confirms it, it’s still simply a rumor. And one thing is for sure, the latest rumors about her being in labor at the moment just don’t seem true.
