Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles were linked to one another earlier this year after the reported pair was seen canoodling on a yacht in early January. At the time, Kendall Jenner and her apparent boyfriend were photographed being extremely hands-on with one another, leading most to believe their relationship was official. However, after a couple of appearances in Los Angeles in the weeks that followed, Kendall Jenner and Styles were rumored to have gone their separate ways.

Following their split, Kendall Jenner reportedly took aim at Styles during an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. On last week’s season finale of the reality show, Kendall Jenner was seen speaking to her younger sister, Kylie, explaining that she tried to convince Styles to “shower more and told him a little deodorant never hurts.”
According to an OK! Magazine report days later, it was noted that Kendall Jenner’s friend, Taylor Swift, another ex-girlfriend of Styles, also put Styles on blast for bad hygiene, claiming she couldn’t kiss him because of his bad breath.
Although Styles has stayed silent since his ex-girlfriend’s diss, Movie News Guide claims he’s reacted to Kendall Jenner’s comment by treating it as constructive criticism, and improving on his look. During a recent outing in London, the One Direction singer was said to be looking much more groomed just days after Kendall Jenner’s shocking allegation aired.

Weeks after the model went public with her relationship with Styles, he reportedly began distancing himself from her as she tended to her fashion duties, and at one point, he was accused of cheating on her with a stylist. Still, Kendall Jenner reportedly wanted to make it work with Styles, and continued to contact him, despite his flaky behavior.
While Kendall Jenner was making an effort, Styles was reportedly not, and after the tables ultimately turned, with Styles hoping to make contact with the reality star, she completely shut him out after feeling “humiliated” by his prior disinterest.
“[Kendall Jenner] was so humiliated by Harry’s behavior last week, she’s sent him some pretty gnarly texts and won’t pick up when he tries to call,” a source told OK! Magazine earlier this month.
The magazine claimed Styles “feels bad about embarrassing [Kendall Jenner]” by distancing her and embarking on womanizing ways and had attempted to apologize, but unfortunately for the singer, “[Kendall Jenner] won’t give him the time of day.”
“[Kendall Jenner’s] banished him from her personal universe and won’t even speak his name,” the source explained. “This is classic Kendall. She’s the queen of bottling up her feelings and acting all tough when the truth is the opposite.”
Amid Kendall Jenner’s heartbreak, the model has reportedly been on the outs with her mother, Kris Jenner, who was hoping she would have a relationship with Styles, and garner their family even more attention than they’re already getting.
“This has created tension with [Kendall Jenner’s] mom, who is desperate for the family to stay on good terms with Harry and the 1D boys for marketing purposes,” the insider said.
Since her split from Styles, Kendall Jenner has visited New York City, Milan, and Paris for fashion shows in each country’s fashion week and appeared on runways for the likes of Chanel, Fendi, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein, Michael Kors, and Diane Von Furstenburg.
Kendall Jenner has not commented at all on her split from Styles, and he has remained silent as well.
