Kylie Jenner appears to have returned fully to social media with more photos of her pregnancy.

Julia Fox says Kanye West bought her a hotel suite full of clothes for date night
Kanye West bought Julia Fox an entire hotel suite’s worth of clothing for their recent date night, the “Uncut Gems” actress revealed in Interview Magazine.
“I met Ye in Miami on New Year’s Eve and it was an instant connection,” Fox’s blog-style feature, accompanied by a photo spread, begins. Describing West’s “energy” as “so fun to be around,” Fox explains the pair “decided to keep the energy going and fly back to New York City to see ‘Slave Play.’”
Noting that West, 44, arrived on time for the play, despite the curtain rising only an hour after his plane touched down, Fox, 31, continued, “after the play we chose to do dinner at Carbone which is one of my favorite restaurants.” “At the restaurant,” the account continues, “Ye directed an entire photo shoot for me while people dined!” Implausibly, Fox adds, “the whole restaurant loved it and cheered us on while it was happening.” Saying she was “still in shock” at West’s gesture, Fox explains that “Ye had an entire hotel suite full of clothes” waiting for her at the Pendry Manhattan West, where the rapper was staying.
