Timothée Chalamet was under fire after he was seen holding a cigarette when he attended Beyonce’s Renaissance tour at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California on Monday with his new girlfriend, Kylie Jenner.
The couple, who have been rumored to be dating since April, was spotted at Beyoncé’s final Los Angeles stop on her Renaissance World Tour. This was the first time that both of them spotted together. Although their PDA during the concert did make headlines, the Dune actor holding a cigarette in his hand while lovingly staring into Jenner’s eyes also led him to get heavily criticized online.
“Everyone’s talking about this kylie and timmy dating confirmation, but i’m way more interested in the fact that they’re just letting him smoke a cig inside the stadium,” one of the users wrote. Another user wrote: “I fear I have entered my Timothée Chalamet ick era because WHY ARE YOU SMOKING IN AN ENCLOSED SPACE.”
A third X user wrote: “Timothee Chalamet smoking a cig at Beyoncé’s birthday show for her to inhale does not sit right with me.”
According to the SoFi Stadium’s website, smoking is prohibited inside the venue. “The Venues are drug-free and smoke-free environments. The use of drugs (including marijuana), other illegal substances and/or smoking (including vaporizers, e-cigarettes and smokeless tobacco) is strictly prohibited,” reads the venue’s guest code of conduct policy.
Monday’s Beyoncé concert took place on the singer’s 42nd birthday. Apart from “Kylie and Timmy,” some of the other A-list celebrities who were in attendance were Jenner’s siblings Kim and Khloé Kardashian, Kim’s daughter, North West, and Kourtney Kardashian’s daughter, Penelope Disick.
Other celebrities who attended the concert included Zendaya and Tom Holland, Justin and Hailey Bieber, Adele, Lizzo, Katy Perry, and Kate Hudson.
