There are new concerns about Kylie Jenner’s relationship with Travis Scott.
The on-and-off couple traveled this week to Miami. Kylie needed a break from motherhood after four grueling weeks. She left Stormi at home with the team of nannies.
Yesterday, Kylie was photographed covering her face with her left hand. Fans noticed three things: A new ring on that finger. Also Kylie covered her lips -- which probably got a refill -- and her left eye is bruised. (Daily Mail)

Kylie featured the new jewelry on her ring finger via Snapchat (which the company swears they didn’t pay her). The diamond ring has the initials of the two most important people in Kylie’s life: BFF Jordyn Woods and baby-daddy Jacques Webster (aka Travis Scott). Retail price: 450 dollars (People)
