It’s been over two weeks since Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott broke up.

Obviously, the process of getting over a breakup is different for everyone, but it seems Kylie has zipped right past the grief, bargaining, anger, acceptance, and late-night "u up?" text stages:

Yes, she’s already reached the thirst trap phase, and we applaud her for it.

As you can see, Kylie has taken her little black dress game to new heights on Instagram.

There’s new about Kylie posting racy pics, of course.

In fact, by some standards, this one is pretty tame.

But if we stop and examine the question of why this photo was posted, we might come up with a more interesting answer than "Look at the woman. Why would she not post pics like this every day?"

In this case, timing is everything.

For starters, the revealing post comes just weeks after the most high-profile breakup of Kylie’s career.

(Yes, this split is a bigger deal than her breakup with Tyga. More on that later.)

But it also comes at a time when Kylie has been taking unprecedented flak for her appearance.

Yes, believe it or not, Kylie’s latest bikini pic was savaged by haters, many of whom claim that the 22-year-old mother of one "looks fake" as a result of too much plastic surgery.

It’s tough to imagine that the world’s youngest "self-made" billionaire could ever suffer from low self-esteem, but millions of strangers criticizing her appearance was bound to have an effect on Kylie sooner or later.

Of course, it’s possible that Kylie’s latest post has nothing to do with her haters.

It could be a response to rumors that Travis is dating Rojean Kar.

Kylizzle was apparently incensed to find out that there may have been some overlap between the two relationships.

That brings us back to the subject of Tyga.

Insiders claim that shortly after the split, Tyga vowed to win Kylie back.

And apparently, she entertained the notion, primarily because she knew it would make Travis jealous.

Tyga, of course, was Kylie’s most serious pre-Travis boyfriend, but we think it’s safe to say her second major relationship left a more indelible impression.

That’ll happen when you have a kid together.

Anyway, it seems that Kylie never actually engaged in a revenge hookup with Tyga, but it’s not hard to see why fans are under the impression that she might be fixated on making Travis jealous.

In fact, it looks like this breakup has yet to reach its ugliest stage.
