Kim Kardashian West jumped to the defense of her younger sister Kylie Jenner, slamming YouTube personality Christian Adam for sparking cheating rumors by spreading an image of himself purposefully imitating Travis Scott with another woman, all for the sake of a video experiment.
“I hate that I am bringing attention to this but this is absolutely disgusting that you would find this funny to mess with Travis & Kylie who just started a family together,” Kardashian West tweeted Wednesday.
It so happened that the internet was set on fire earlier this week by a single image of what appeared to be the “Sicko Mode” rapper, complete with his signature braids, getting cozy with swimsuit-clad woman on a balcony.
The picture caused such an uproar that Scott himself had to set the record straight, “TMZ ain’t post this (expletive). Trolls working hard today… Try again u trollsssss. Me and my wifey sturdy…Only got love for my wife. No time to be wasting. Try again.”
Despite Scott’s denial, speculation still brewed until Adam posted his YouTube video “We Fooled the Internet w/ Fake Travis Scott Cheating Photo” on Wednesday.
“That photo you seen of Travis Scott allegedly cheating on his significant other Kylie Jenner was completely staged and we were the one to do it,” he boasted during the 17-minute video that gives a behind-the-scenes look into the faked paparazzi pic.
Adam’s preparations included studying Scott’s mannerism and dying his own hair, to prove “how gullible the internet is” and “not to believe everything you see online.” He adds that the prank was “NOT made to intentionally hurt Travis Scott, Kylie Jenner or the entire Kardashian family.”
However, Kardashian West begs to differ, “This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!” Scott responded to Adam’s Instagram reveal, commenting “Shaking my (expletive) head.”
Scott, 26, and Jenner, 21, are parents to 10-month-old daughter Stormi. They have not announced a marriage, though she has also referred to him as her “hubby.”
The incident appeared to be deja vu for the Kardashian/Jenner family who dealt with allegations and footage of Tristan Thompson cheating on pregnant girlfriend Khloe Kardashian earlier this year.
