Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Have Water Balloon Fight With Daughter Stormi
Memorial Day fun! Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott adorably documented a water balloon fight with their 3-year-old daughter, Stormi, while celebrating the holiday on Monday, May 31. “Love this little baby,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 23, captioned an Instagram Story video of the toddler walking outside in a yellow dress and matching sandals. In later footage, Scott, 29, filled up multiple water balloons from a hose. Stormi threw the first one straight to the ground before aiming for her mom. “No, don’t throw it at me!” the makeup mogul yelled from behind the camera. After she screamed, Stormi and her dad teamed up to throw another at Jenner. “No,” she said, running away. “I’m leaving.” The father-daughter pair continued launching balloons at the Kylie Cosmetics creator through a glass door while she laughed. The Los Angeles native and Scott welcomed their baby girl in February 2018 after dating for nearly one year. While they split in October 2019, Stormi’s parents still “have a huge amount of love for each other,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly earlier this month. “I wouldn’t say that Kylie and Travis have an open relationship, they just don’t put a label on it. They’ve been like this for years,” the insider explained at the time. “Travis will be at all holidays, everything to do with Stormi, but he and Kylie don’t call each other boyfriend and girlfriend. There’s no expectations between them.
Bellearlier this month. Tyler Sinclair, a spokesperson for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor's Office, said at the time that the girl contacted Toronto police in October 2018. Toronto authorities then contacted Cleveland police, prompting an investigation.
The attempted endangering children charge relates to the concert, Sinclair said, where Bell “violated his duty of care” and created a risk of harm to the victim. Sinclair didn’t elaborate further.

Bell and the girl had “developed a relationship” online several years prior to the concert, Sinclair said. The disseminating harmful material charge concerns Bell having sent the girl “inappropriate social media messages,” Sinclair said.
