Over the past few weeks, the internet has developed something of an obsession with Tim Chung, who works as a bodyguard for Kylie Jenner, and who also happens to look like this when he takes his shirt off:
While most of the conversation has concerned his delightfully thirst-trappy Instagram, Chung has also found himself the target of some rather unsavoury rumours, with suggestions that he’s the father of Kylie’s new baby Stormi.
Social media became awash with photos comparing Chung and Stormi and people claiming to have “receipts” about the baby’s parentage, initially prompting Chung to post the below photo with the caption “chill” – an instruction to the internet, I presume.
The rumours refused to go away, though, and overnight, Chung took to Instagram to post a lengthier statement, denying that he has anything to do with Kylie Jenner’s baby and asking to be removed from the narrative:
I am a very private person and would normally never answer to gossip and stories that are so ridiculous that they are laughable.
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.
So there you have it, folks. We’ll just have to project our Whitney Houston–Kevin Costner Fantasies onto someone else. You’ll always be my bodyguard, Tim.
