Tim Chung, Kylie Jenner’s internet-famous former bodyguard, recently addressed rumors that he fathered Jenner’s 3-month-old daughter Stormi with a denial on Instagram.
Noting that it would be his “first and last comment” on the matter, Chung insisted that his relationship with Jenner has been strictly professional in nature.

New details have emerged that Chung’s public statement may have resulted from a recent outburst of Jenner’s boyfriend, Travis Scott.
Citing sources privy to the matter, In Touch reports that Scott got irked over Chung’s non-response after he was asked if he’s Stormi’s father. Scott was reportedly so upset that he made the rising social media star address the situation publicly.
“Travis got a hold of Tim by phone and went ballistic,” the source was quoted as saying. “He made it very clear he needed to stop disrespecting his family and put this charade to an end.”
In his Instagram post, the hunky LAPD cop/model 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.”
Despite Chung’s statement, however, Scott remained uncomfortable about the entire situation.
“Travis was extremely angry at the rumors. It made him question himself and Kylie,” the source revealed, adding that even Scott’s family is pushing him to take a DNA test just to be sure that the baby is actually his.
“Even though Tim’s come clean, Travis’ family still wants him to have a paternity test,” the source reportedly said.
Meanwhile, Jenner also addressed the controversy with a photo of her with Scott at the Met Gala accompanied by a simple caption: “Stormi’s parents.”
