Rumors started swirling around late Oct. 2017 that Caitlyn Jenner had begun a relationship with transgender model Sophia Hutchins, and although the pair have been inseparable since, neither have confirmed they're dating. Actually, the 22-year-old star has even gone as far as to deny any romance between them. But the rumors have continued nonstop of something more than platonic.
While Sophia is on Caitlyn's arm at nearly every single event she attends, the newest update from the two claims they are just friends. According to PEOPLE, Caitlyn introduced Sophia as her "partner" to fellow attendees at her granddaughter Stormi's first birthday party on Feb. 9, however the label might not mean as much as we think.
"They are not romantic but are best friends and are generally inseparable," a source explains. "Also, they consider themselves business partners. Sophia helps manage Caitlyn’s foundation and other business endeavors."
And although Caitlyn, 69, even lives with Sophia, an insider previously told PEOPLE they are simply close friends within a group of trans women. The latest update sounds very similar to Sophia's words in Oct. 2018, where she claimed to Hidden Truth Show, "I wouldn’t describe it as a romantic relationship. I would describe our relationship as we’re partners — we’re business partners."
Despite Cait and Sophia being attached at the hip, they're clearly adamant on clarifying they're not an item. Whether or not that's the whole truth, however, remains a mystery.
