Where was Kylie Jenner during Kim Kardashian’s birthday trip?

The Kylie Cosmetics founder was recently pictured getting on a private jet with her daughter Stormi.

Fans speculated they were flying to the private island for Kim’s birthday, however, two days later they arrived back in Los Angeles.

Travis Scott, who’s Stormi’s dad, joined them suggesting Kylie may have been in Houston with the rapper instead of joining her family.

It’s unclear why Kylie didn’t attend.

Kim shared a selection of photos from the weekend away to her Instagram.

She said she surprised her “inner circle” after two weeks of “multiple health screens and asking everyone to quarantine”.

Kim added: “I surprised my closest inner circle with a trip to a private island where we could pretend things were normal just for a brief moment in time.

“I realize that for most people, this is something that is so far out of reach right now, so in moments like these, I am humbly reminded of how privileged my life is.”

Some fans speculated why Kylie was missing from the pictures.

One person said: “Where is Kylie??”

Another wrote: “She’s probably working with her new [makeup] collection.”

A third speculated: “Kylie had to work these past days/weeks. So she wasn’t quarantined. She probably didn’t wanna risk it.”
