Kim Kardashian West is defending 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.
Kim tweeted, "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. This is really damaging to relationships, families and is just so wrong!"
A photo was posted 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.
He wrote, "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."Adam wanted 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."
