In his budding romance with Kylie Jenner, Timothée Chalamet, the acclaimed star of "Wonka," is reportedly causing concern among his family members due to a noticeable shift in his behavior. This development has ignited fears within the Chalamet household that he may fall prey to the infamous "Kardashian Curse" – a term coined in Hollywood circles to describe the alleged pattern of misfortune that befalls the men who become romantically involved with the Kardashian-Jenner women.
This phenomenon, widely discussed in entertainment circles, suggests a correlation between dating a member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan and experiencing subsequent personal and professional turmoil. Past examples often cited include Lamar Odom, Scott Disick, and Kanye West, who faced various struggles during or after their relationships with the Kardashian-Jenner family.
An inside source close to the Chalamet family shared with Heat Magazine that Timothée's loved ones are grappling with a challenging situation. The insider revealed, "Timothée’s family and friends are caught between a rock and a hard place.
They’re conscious of not wanting to overstep or control his personal life, especially given that he’s nearing 30 and has demonstrated a solid ability to handle his career autonomously."
Chalamet's Alarming Transformation
However, the source noted a growing unease among those close to him: "Despite their reluctance to interfere, it’s becoming increasingly difficult for them to remain silent.
There’s a noticeable change in Timothée - a newfound fascination with high-end fashion brands, luxury vehicles, private jets, and a group of enablers constantly surrounds him." This concern escalated during the recent holiday season.
"There was an evident detachment when he joined his family for the holidays. He was preoccupied with constant communication with Kylie, hardly engaging with family members. On the occasions he did interact, the conversations were self-centered.
It was as if we were seeing a completely different person," the source added. This situation places Chalamet's family in a delicate position as they navigate their concern for his well-being while respecting his independence.
The shift in Timothée’s demeanor and lifestyle choices, influenced by his relationship with Jenner, remains a worry for his family, who hope to see him balance his personal life and the whirlwind world of celebrity relationships.
