Caitlyn Jenner’s “partner” Sophia Hutchins gets a hug from Kylie Jenner after their much-needed get-together amid the recent controversies involving the youngest self-made billionaire.
On Friday, the former Olympian and her special friend were spotted enjoying dinner at Nobu restaurant in Malibu with Kylie. The trio reportedly spent quality time together in the fallout of the cheating scandal involving Kylie’s BFF Jodyn Woods and Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy, Tristan Thompson.
Their reunion also comes at a time when Kylie is getting a lot of backlash after Forbes named her the youngest self-made billionaire at 21, beating Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s record at 23.
“They were toasting and laughing,” an eyewitness told People. “They ordered a lot of food and seemed to have a great time. They dined for two hours. Kylie looked happy.”
Following their dinner, Caitlyn, Sophia and Kylie were photographed leaving the upscale restaurant. The three of them were donning all-black ensembles for the chilly evening when they stepped out of Nobu.
In the photos shared by Daily Mail, Kylie is seen leading the way during their exit. However, she turned around to give a hug to her father when she was about to enter her ride. The Lip Kit mogul also didn’t forget to hug Hutchins, who is only a year older than her and a year younger than Kendall Jenner.
When Kylie had already left, Caitlyn and Sophia headed to the 69-year-old television personality’s yellow Lamborghini, which appeared to be parked in a handicapped spot based on the leaked photos.
This is the first public sighting of the rumored couple ever since they got back in the City of Angels. They were photographed arriving at LAX last Wednesday following their trip to New York City and their brief stop in San Francisco.
Hutchins is currently staying at Caitlyn’s four-bedroom home in Malibu. Because of this, there have been a lot of speculations regarding the nature of their relationship. Many news outlets and tabloids claimed that the two were already engaged to be married.
However, a source clarified recently that Caitlyn and Sophia are “purely platonic” and they just consider each other as “business partners” contrary to what the reports said. They are also generally inseparable because Hutchins is helping Caitlyn manage her foundation and businesses.
