Is Kylie Jenner’s bodyguard Stormi’s dad?
It seems almost inevitable these days when a famous celeb has a baby that there will be rumors that the father is not who says he is, no matter what evidence to the contrary. Take baby Stormi, the three-month-old daughter of Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott.
Last week rumors started swirling that Scott was not actually Stormi’s baby daddy and it was instead Kylie’s bodyguard, Tim Chung. The rumors stemmed from a photograph of Stormi that showed a certain Asiatic resemblance.
Compounding that rumor was a recent video posted on gossip site TMZ where a reporter caught up with Chung outside of a West Hollywood nightclub. When asked if he was Stormi’s real father, Chung just laughs and turns away but doesn’t outright deny the allegation.
Sources speaking to TMZ say that the rumor is indeed laughable and that Tim’s relationship with Kylie is 100% professional in nature. The two have never had sex, according to their sources.
However, rumors continued to swirl to the point where Chung himself felt compelled to make a statement on the matter. He took to his Instagram account to release a statement officially denying that he is the father of Stormi Scott.
"I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable,” the bodyguard wrote.
"Out of deep respect for Kylie, Travis, their daughter together, and their families, I would like to set the record straight and say that my interactions with Kylie and her family have been limited in strictly a professional capacity only.
“There is no story here and I ask that the media no longer include me in any narrative that is incredibly disrespectful to their family."
This isn’t the first time rumors of Stormi’s real father have popped up online. Shortly after Stormi was born, gossip began circulating that it wasn’t Travis Scott but ex-boyfriend Tyga who was the real father.
Tyga later released a similar statement to Chung’s denying his paternity. "I’ve never said anything about someone else’s child or family insinuating my involvement; and will never do so. Please, Stop spreading false stories and attacking people’s families,” he said.
