It's already tough to keep all of Kylie Jenner's various fashion lines and partnerships straight, and now she's reportedly about to add a lucrative new gig to her plate. US Weekly ran an article yesterday reporting that Kylie just signed a seven-figure contract to be an ambassador for Puma.
Apparently, a now-deleted Kylie Instagram of a happy puppy hanging out in the sun with the caption "Mood" was meant to confirm the news.
What does Puma's creative director Rihanna have to say about this? According to US Weekly's sources, Jenner's involvement with Puma isn't going to be "full out like Rihanna's collaboration."
Rihanna's bringing Puma to New York Fashion Week, after all, with a Puma by Rihanna runway show this Friday. Fashionista guesses that if Kylie's sitting front row for that, the rumors are probably true.
Racked reached out to a Puma press representative and will update this post if more information becomes available.
Update: Kanye just took to Twitter to address the Kylie/Puma rumors:
