In It for the Money? Caitlyn Jenner’s New Girlfriend Sparks Gold Digger Rumors
Sophia Hutchins may be leading the reality star on
Life of Luxury
Caitlyn Jenner’s love life has been under a microscope ever since the 68-year-old finalized her divorce with Keeping Up with the Kardashians matriarch Kris Jenner. Now, it seems her new rumored fling is getting the squeeze as friends worry Sophia Hutchins, 21, is only using the reality star for her massive fortune.
According to Radar Online, the Olympic gold medalist has been spending quite a bit of money on the Pepperdine University student, who she’s grown quite attached to in recent months. As a source put it: “[Caitlyn’s] been showering [Sophia] with jewelry, spa trips and fancy dinners… anything Sophia wants, she gets and Cait’s only too happy to write checks if that keeps her happy.”
While it’s unclear exactly when Caitlyn and Sophia struck up a friendship, it seems they have been together for quite a while. As an aspiring model, Sophia — who started her transition in late 2016 — is known to use the I Am Cait star’s multi-million dollar Malibu home for her photo shoots. She was also recently seen dining at the Sherwood Country Club, the exclusive golf course where Caitlyn is a member.
Does this mean Sophia is just in it for the money? Not quite!
She may look like a gold digger given her new life of luxury, but a source told Radar Online the college undergrad has been anything but reliant on Caitlyn. “To be fair Sophia’s not a user and there are more high maintenance types out there, but a lot of people think she’s leading Caitlyn on by allowing her to pay for everything like this,” the insider spilled.
Sophia’s own mother, Amy Hutchins, also denied rumors the I Am Cait star was financially supporting her daughter. She told the outlet the Secrets of My Life author is “not affording her [daughter] a lifestyle” and that “Caitlyn has been a real supportive friend to her.”
Radar Online’s source added, “She denies anything’s happening but it’s pretty obvious Cait’s smitten and desperately trying to woo Sophia.”
As previously reported, Caitlyn and Sophia sparked romance rumors this fall when the two were spotted vacationing together at Las Ventanas al Paraiso resort in Los Cabos, Mexico. Sophia shared a photo of herself lounging by the beach on a pillowed bench in a white robe, while the reality star posted a picture from the same room with what appeared to be her companion’s legs and feet in the shot.
They continued to to fuel relationship speculations as Caitlyn took her much younger gal pal to her daughter Kendall Jenner’s 22nd birthday bash. Though a party insider told us Sophia’s appearance at the star-studded party was “a little awkward” at the time, her introduction to the Kardashians that night nonetheless suggested things were getting serious.
“I never have [dated a man],” Caitlyn said on her former E! docuseries in 2016. “To be honest with you, I can’t see myself dating women in the future. I’ve been there, done that. I have three very strong ex-wives. I just don’t see it. I don’t see a woman being attracted to me. If there was a female in my life, it would be more like a friendship than it would be a serious relationship.”
