After Kylie Jenner's "Rise and Shine" meme broke the internet last month as well as breaking TikTok viewing records, things seem to have taken a turn for the worse.

It was reported over the weekend that the 22-year-old had sent an Australian woman a cease and desist letter over "Rise and Shine" t-shirts she was selling, even though the woman involved had reportedly been selling them since 2017.

But in a series of defiant tweets, Kylie has shot down those reports, urging her fans not to believe everything they read on the internet.

She wrote, "Guys, please don’t believe everything you read. I have not sent any Rise and Shine cease and desist letters."

"Rise and Shine was an unexpected moment.. I had a lot of fun with it, and I have laughed so hard seeing everyone’s memes since the video came out a few weeks ago."

Back in April 2017, it was rumoured Kylie was seeing US rapper Travis Scott and they made their first official outing as a couple just a few weeks later.In March 2018, the couple announced Kylie had given birth to a baby girl named Stormi, shocking the world as no one even knew she was pregnant. However, the pair called it quits in October 2019, just days after Travis released his Netflix documentary.

Back in 2014, 18-year-old Kylie hit the headlines after it was revealed she was dating rapper Tyga, who was six years older than her. He was the former ex-boyfriend of Kim Kardashian's best friend Blac Chyna, so it was all looking quite strange.However, the pair lasted a long time, dating for around three years and reportedly splitting up in April 2017. During their relationship though, Kylie's brother Rob Kardashian got together, and had a child with, Tyga's ex Blac Chyna, which made the family dynamic very awkward... They were also plagued with split, engagement and pregnancy rumours over the three years. We can't keep up.

Back in 2014 Kylie appeared to have a summer romance with Shamari Maurice as she plastered him all over her Instagram page. She captioned the images with messages like: "He loves to cuddle with me." But he soon disappeared and it looked like their summer "fling" was over quicker than some of the Love Island couples.

Nobody knows the full story about what happened between Kylie and Lil Twist but it seems they were more than just good friends. Previous to Lil, Kylie was dating Jayden Smith, but just days later she was spotted out jewellery shopping with Justin Bieber's best pal Twist. We seriously cannot keep up with the young 'ens these days.

Rumours these two were hooking up started doing the rounds in spring 2013 but their relationship was confirmed a few months later when they were spotted leaving a cinema holding hands. Their on-off relationship went on for a year before their romance fell off the radar. But they were apparently seen snogging the faces off each other again at Kim Kardashian's wedding to Kanye West in 2014.

Way back when they were early teens in 2011, Kylie and Cody dated but never made much of their relationship in public. After they split, pictures of them kissing were leaked, proving they were once a couple.

In another tweet posted straight after her first, Kylie, who recently split from boyfriend Travis Scott, concluded, "There are no law suits, no cease and desist letters. Happy Sunday."

And her fans were quick to praise the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star for her honesty.

One Twitter user wrote, "Don't care about these people! wish you and Stormi a great Sunday", while another said, "Why any one would want to cease and desist “rise and shine" is beyond me. It’s literally I C O N I C."

However, others were still skeptical, despite Kylie's strongly worded tweet.

One user replied to her saying, "So why’d you trademark it?" [in reference to Kylie trademarking the slogan "Rise and Shine"], while another said, "Bro you trademarked a phrase that literally everyone uses."

Hilariously, another follower was keen to change the subject, writing, "Are you dating Drake though?", after rumours emerged the rapper was trying to woo her with gifts.

Sadly, she didn't respond.
