Travis Scott raps about love and lies in his new single, released days after news of his split from Kylie Jenner was made public.

On Tuesday, a source told E! News that the two, who have been together for two years and share 1 and 1/2-year-old daughter Stormi Webster, "are taking space apart" and that they have "been fighting again" recently. Another source said Kylie, 22, wishes Travis, 25, was "more dedicated to the family," and that the rapper has been busy with his music career.

On Thursday, he released his single "Highest in the Room," which many fans think contains lyrics about his relationship with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, and an accompanying music video. Travis has been performing the track on his Astroworld tour since May and in April, it was featured in a Kylie Cosmetics ad.

On the track, Travis raps, "When I'm with you, I feel alive / You say you love me, don't you lie (Yeah) / Won't cross my heart, don't wanna die / Keep the pistol on my side (Yeah)."

"Highest in the Room" also blatantly addresses the rapper's marijuana usage, with its title and lyrics such as, "I got room In my fumes (Yeah) / She fill my mind up with ideas / I'm the highest in the room (It's lit) / Hope I make it outta here (Let's go)" and "She saw my eyes, she know I'm gone (Ah) / I see some things that you might fear / I'm doing a show, I'll be back soon (Soon) / That ain't what she wanna hear (Nah)."

On a September appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Kylie said that Travis "smells like fresh shower, and fresh cologne" and "also smells like weed a lot."

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott: Romance Rewind

In the music video, Travis is shown being taken hostage and tortured, walking through a strip club and on a steel beam on a skyscraper under construction and also taking part in a video game-like fight.

Kylie broke her silence about her and the rapper's split on Thursday, tweeting, "Travis and i are on great terms and our main focus right now is Stormi‼️ Our friendship and our daughter is priority."


She also denied reports that said she recently had a late-night reunion with her ex Tyga while out with her girlfriends in Los Angeles.

"There was no '2am date with Tyga,'" she tweeted. "You see me drop two of my friends off at a studio that he happened to be at."

After news broke about Kylie and Travis' split, there was also a viral report that suggested that Instagram bombshell Rojean Kar—also known as YungSweetRo—may have had a fling with the rapper. She denied the rumors, writing, "Please stop spreading lies & leave him, her & I alone because it's affecting real lives. Thank you."

A source close to Travis also told E! News, "any rumors of cheating are totally and completely false."
