Kylie Jenner: Having Travis Scott Followed by Private Detectives?!

It may be that Kylie Jenner is jealous of Ariana Grande’s engagement and impatient for Travis Scott to put a ring on it, but … that doesn’t mean that all is well for these two.

In fact, a very disturbing report claims that Kylie is terrified that Travis is going to cheat on her while touring in Europe.

That’s not the disturbing part, though. What’s alarming is that she is allegedly having him tailed by private detectives to watch his every move.

It sounds like Kylie Jenner isn’t as peacefully content in her relationship as it appears.

“She’s having Travis followed,” a source informs RadarOnline.

This alleged private detective is supposed to be keeping tabs on her boyfriend and baby daddy at all times.

The insider says that Kylie is taking this extraordinary step “because she’s not 100 percent certain he won’t cheat if given the chance.”

Well, Travis is a rapper by trade. Like any performer, his entire career is basically one huge opportunity to cheat.

(Not an excuse! Just an opportunity)

But when Travis is touring in Europe? He’s likely to be surrounded by temptation at all times.

Admittedly, this whole situation reminds us of some sort of noir film.

It is all too easy to imagine a black-and-white scene of Kylie Jenner walking into some private eye’s office with a subtle veil descending from the brim of her hat.

But the insider claims that this is no joke — that Kylie is genuinely concerned that Travis is going to give in to temptation.

“She’s freaking,” the source explains. “Because he’ll be on the road and out of her sight.”

Sometimes, absence makes the heart grow fonder.

But in light of how Kylie’s sister Khloe was humiliated by Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal, maybe Kylie isn’t willing to be made to look foolish.

(Well, she doesn’t want to look more foolish than she does by dating a guy who did this at one of his shows, anyway)

The insider explains that Kylie is paying a hefty price (literally) for keeping Travis under surveillance.

“It’s really for peace of mind,” the source explains. “But the private eye doesn’t come cheap.”

Of course. Private investigators cost money — especially when it potentially involves a lot of travel and following someone who has their own private security.

The source explains: “It’s costing her thousands of dollars because she wants him tailed 24/7.”

That’s much more expensive than just finding out if someone’s spouse really goes out with coworkers on Wednesdays, or whatever.

The source then shares something that’s alarming — more so than Kylie’s suspicions.

(Though, to be clear, this entire situation sounds unsettling and unhealthy)

“Even when Travis is around,” the insider says.

“She can’t resist peeking at his phone and checking to see who’s called him. And,” they add. “Reading his emails.”

That intrusive behavior is disturbing and toxic.

A lot of girlfriends and boyfriends feel entitled to look through their significant other’s texts and emails.

If people want to opt for that level of transparency, that’s fine. But otherwise, it’s a gross invasion of privacy.

Of course, you might say that having Travis followed isn’t much better.

Honestly? We would love for this report to turn out to be wrong. Perhaps someone misunderstood a joke. (Hey, it happens!)

First of all, we hope that Kylie is not a toxic person who invades her boyfriend’s privacy without a second thought.

Second of all, we hope that Travis is not an absolute idiot, and that Kylie knows that he isn’t one.

Kylie is hot, she’s the mother of his child, and she’s due to be worth about a billion dollars by the time that she’s old enough to rent a car.

If they decide to break up at one point, that would be one thing.

But cheating?

Travis would basically be throwing away a life of absolute, unparalleled luxury — which he will never make as a rapper, no shade — just to get his dick wet.

There are some people who would straight up have their penises removed for a billion dollars. Travis, we’re sure, can exercise wisdom and self-control.

Plus, you know, he presumably loves Kylie.

NYPD Detectives Help Pay for Abused 6-Year-Old Boy’s Funeral

The 6-year-old New York City boy who died last week after allegedly being abused by his mother’s boyfriend was mourned at a packed funeral service Friday night, paid for by NYPD detectives who were touched by the tragic case. 

Zymere Perkins died Sept. 26 after what prosecutors say was months of abuse by his mother and her boyfriend. On the day he died, his mother’s boyfriend allegedly beat him with a broomstick and hung him by his shirt over the back of the bathroom door, apparently enraged when the boy defecated in the living room of their Hamilton Heights apartment. 

Zymere was left on the bed unconscious and when he didn’t wake up, was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

NYPD detectives, who investigated Perkins’ case, have raised over $ 9,000 to help pay for the boy’s wake and funeral, police confirmed.

“It was the least we could do,” one detective told The New York Post. “The poor kid went through hell.” 

Friends and family remembered Zymere at services at the Church of the Open Door in Brooklyn Friday night. 

“He didn’t get a chance to live his life,” said a former neighbor named Jamal. “For his life to be taken so suddenly, I’m heartbroken.” 

“No little kid should be taken like that,” said another neighbor, Jiniah Spruill. 

The boy had spent time in a homeless shelter with his mother before living in the squalid, roach-infested Hamilton Heights apartment, sources have told NBC 4. He had not been attending school this year.

Both his mother, Geraldine Perkins, and her boyfriend, Rysheim Smith, have been arrested on charges of endangering the welfare of a child. Their attorneys did not immediately return calls seeking comment. 

City officials have acknowledged that the mother was investigated five times for abuse allegations.

Mayor de Blasio said the death of a 6-year-old boy whose family had been investigated for child abuse “should not have happened.”

De Blasio said Wednesday that Zymere Perkins’ death was “an unacceptable tragedy” and added that “the buck stops here.”

The sentiment was echoed at Zymere’s funeral. 

“It could have been prevented. They went there before,” neighbor Calvin Hurt said, referring to the city’s child services workers. 

“No child should die like this,” said family pastor Rev. Mark V.C. Taylor. “We need to make sure we’re never in this position again.” 

Gladys Carrion, the commissioner of children’s services, admitted in a tearful interview with the I-Team that “we can’t keep every child safe.”

Carrion said in the interview Tuesday that “just one fatality is one too many” but declined to discuss any details about the boy’s case. She said that it was too early to characterize whether her agency dropped the ball and added that the staff who handled Perkins’ case were in bad shape.

Five ACS employees were placed on modified duty after Perkins’ death, and Carrion didn’t rule out the possibility she could be fired.
