Why settle for one major magazine cover when you can have two?
A week after being touted by Forbes as on track to be America’s “youngest self-made billionaire ever, male or female,” Kylie Jenner is gracing the cover of GQ‘s August issue. This time, she’s got company: boyfriend Travis Scott.
The couple of one year — and parents to Stormi Webster, who was born in February — make their joint cover debut in a suit (for him) and sexy Norma Kamali bodysuit (for her).
Kylie also rocks a body-con dress and matching white garter stockings in another photo from their shoot.
Inside, the rapper and beauty mogul open up about their relationship. Though neither can remember just how they met, their romance sparked after hanging out at Coachella. After a second date, Kylie decided to join her new beau on tour.
“She knows I beat to my own drum,” the 20-year-old said of mum Kris Jenner’s reaction to her abrupt escape. “My whole family knows that I do whatever I’m going to do. I’ve been that way my whole life. I don’t really answer to anybody. I live on my own, and so I just rode off into the sunset.
“We had a lot of downtime. It was organic. And we would just go to these random cities. We got to not be who we really were. Like, if we were in L.A., I feel like it would’ve been way different. Everything happened for a reason. We weren’t going out as ‘Kylie and Trav.’ We would just be in Cleveland, walking the street for hours. We would go on walks, and no one would bother us.”
There’s less time for cross-country adventures these days, as Kylie says daughter Stormi is “too young” to travel. The infant’s name, incidentally, was chosen by her father, according to a cute video Kylie and Travis made for GQ.
Besides their daughter, both stars have big projects. Kylie is eager to build brick-and-mortar retail shops for Kylie Cosmetics, while Travis calls his upcoming solo album, AstroWorld, “his baby.” In the meantime, they’re also doing their best to avoid the dreaded “Kardashian Curse,” aka the theory that the five sisters’ fame can overwhelm the men in their lives.
“I don’t think he’s really cool with [the fame], but he deals with it, because we love each other and we have a family,” Kylie told the magazine. “For sure, I know he doesn’t like the attention. That’s why we just go the extra mile to keep our relationship super-private, or like, if he has events or something, I won’t come. Because I want him to do his own thing. I want him to be him. I don’t want it to be Kylie and Trav. If people don’t ever see us together, that’s OK with me, because we just do our thing.”
Kylie also received support from her fans for her choice not to photoshop her scar out of the images.

This isn’t the first time Jenner has shown off her scar. She shared an Instagram post a few years ago that showed a closeup of it, writing, “I love my scar.”
Kylie revealed how she got the scar during a fan Q&A in 2011. “When I was about 5, my sister [Kendall] and I were playing hide-and-seek, and I hid inside this really tall, enclosed gate,” Kylie said, according to ET.
“After a while when my sister didn’t find me, I had to climb up on this sharp pole sticking out from the gate. I slipped and the pole went into my leg. I tried pulling away to get the pole out, but it just tore through my whole leg. It’s smaller now though because I grew!”
