Sorry, Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny. Move aside, Emily Ratajkowski and Harry Styles. There's a new hot young celebrity couple that has sent fans spiraling: Kylie and Timothée. 

Yes, rumor has it that the Kylie Cosmetics founder and the Call Me By Your Name actor are romantically canoodling, per a DeuxMoi exclusive that dropped on Thursday, April 6. The popular celebrity gossip account posted a blind item on its Instagram Story that read: "Multiple sources have told me that Timmy C has a new girl...Kylie Jenner." 

Now, DeuxMoi receives blind items all the time and acknowledges that there is a good likelihood that not all of them are legit. However, the "curators of pop culture" posted about the duo yet again on the account's grid, with another insider adding: "I can confirm too about Timothee and Kylie! I've known about them since January PFW."

When a Kylie fan account commented, "Don't think this is true," DeuxMoi replied: "It is 100p."

Given that the gossip account correctly broke the scoop about the Kendall-Bad Bunny romance (the pair's recent horseback-riding date has given us some serious spring dating inspo), we do think Deux has credibility here.

While some fans think the Kylie and Timothée pairing is very random (we'd have to agree), the twosome obviously share a love of high-minded fashion, as they were spotted at the Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture show back in January 2023. 

There are also rumors that Chalamet is currently in Jenner's native California to attend the Coachella music festival, which kicks off Friday, April 14 in Indio. It wouldn't be the first time that the Dune star sparked romance rumors at the fest: last year's 'Chella saw a Sarah Talabi-Timothée Chalamet lip-lock, you might remember.

Prior to Chalamet, Jenner was previously dating her longtime love, American rapper Travis Scott, with whom she shares two children, Stormi and Aire. The couple began dating in 2017 and reportedly split by January 2023, after spending the holidays apart.

Timothée's recent dating history has been harder to pin down. Most recently, the leading man was linked to his Bones and All co-star Taylor Russell, and prior to that, he had an on-again, off-again relationship with model-actress Lily-Rose Depp from 2018 to 2021. 

Fans react to those Kylie and Timothée rumors: 

Needless to say, folks had plenty to talk about on social media about the burgeoning (if true) power couple. "I kind of want it to be real just for the chaos," wrote one fan on Twitter.
