Here's What Travis Scott Thinks About 'The Kardashian Curse'

He also shares his first, tearful moment with him and Kylie Jenner's daughter, Stormi Webster.

Published July 17, 2018

G.O.O.D. Music’s Travis Scott and youngest sister of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, Kylie Jenner, are the latest cover stars of GQ, and they get up close and personal on what it’s like balancing a relationship and parenthood under the Hollywood microscope.

But what would a La Flame and Kylie collaborative feature story be without at least one of them answering the burning, most controversial question regarding their rapid romance: “Are you worried at all about falling victim to the Kardashian Curse?”

  1. Before answering that, writer Mark Anthony Green recalls the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians episode’ where Travis takes advice from a spiritual medium intended to help “break the curse”

    As explained in the feature, Travis buys a rooster to ritualistically release. He’s instructed to wear all white and transfer his energy to the animal as he ensures that no one else touches it. Jokingly perhaps, the entire idea was brought on by Scott Disick, father of Kourtney Kardashian’s children. But let fans and other industry folk like Snoop Dogg tell it, and that Kardashian curse—which holds that the men who have associated or currently associate with the sisters are doomed for downward spirals—is a real thing.

  2. ‘Kylie actually likes me for me,’ Travis said in response to the question

    He commented that he doesn’t “even be looking at motherf**kers,” and never had concerns over the curse. “Nervous for what?” he continued. “I’m on my own island. So hey, come over there to Astroworld.” The “Goosebumps” rapper concluded that he keeps his distance from the controversy, insisting that his 20-year-old girlfriend and mother of his daughter, Stormi Webster, is “different.”

    Away from the buzz, Travis has kept his focus honed in on fatherhood, a presumably life-changing experience that brought him to tears, in fact. "When my daughter was born," he responded to a question about the last time he cried. "As soon as I heard her crying..." Travis also said he was in the room for Kylie's labor the entire time, "through the hell" and all. 

  3. Kylie, on the other hand, believes the curse is misconstrued

    Green shares his theory about the Kardashian curse, which holds that “maybe it’s just extremely difficult to fly this close to the sun,” and Travis and the other men who have courted the sisters weren’t “built for this level of celebrity.” She believes that he’s spot on with his theory, and says that Travis is usually quicker to get angry about rumors and news stories. “It's everyone around us that aren't used to it,” she said. “And we're just like, ‘Oh, that'll go away in a day.’ I know these stories aren't going to matter, so don't even let them affect you, you know.”

    She also knows that Travis doesn’t like the attention or pressure, but he “deals with it because [they] love each other and [they] have a family.”
