The rumors that Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner were dating is not entirely a rumor. According to inside sources, Nick and Kendall were almost dating, until Jonas got to know her and decided that she was all beauty, no substance. The not-so-hot affair reportedly began when friend Gigi Hadid and Nick’s brother, Joe Jonas, tried to play cupids in Las Vegas. Recently, an insider dished the details of their lighting of the “Ken-doll” flame to New York Daily News.
“They hung out in Vegas and then hung out one or two other times. He thinks she’s hot, but he thought she was a little annoying and just not his type.”
The same source hints that Kendall Jenner was and still is a lot more into Nick Jonas than he ever was to her. After sparks didn’t fly in Vegas, Jonas is trying to move on with his life, while Jenner is reportedly hoping he comes around.
“He didn’t really want anything to do with it, but Kendall was definitely interested in dating him. She’s hoping he’ll ask her out again, but he won’t.”
Instead, it appears that Nick Jonas is still healing from his recent break-up with ex-girlfriend Olivia Culpo. In a recent E! interview, Nick completely dismisses the rumor that he and Kendall Jenner are an item. He says in a nutshell, Kendall is nice, but is merely a friend of a friend to him.
“Kendall is great and, naturally, with her being good friends with Gigi and with Joe and Gigi dating, there are times we’ll be in the same place and we all hang out.”
The confirmation from Nick’s lips that Kendall is not his chick leave Kendall Jenner as the gorgeous girl that nobody wants, again. The model has a shaky dating history, in which most of her so-called boyfriends were merely rumored boyfriends that have never been confirmed. These handsome anti-Kendalls were Justin Bieber, Lewis Hamilton, Ashton Irwin, and now Nick Jonas. The only two hotties that have been proven ex-beaus of Jenner are Julian Brooks, who publicly humiliated her by cheating, and Harry Styles, who reportedly caused Kendall to feud with Taylor Swift.
Wiping his hands of the rumors of he and Kendall Jenner, Nick Jonas explained that he’s enjoying being single. But the “Levels” singer feels there a certain way to be single and that is apparently to use that down time to focus on self.
“I’m trying to take the time to walk out this next phase of my life and be single the right way. I like being able to work as hard as I want. I’m incredibly driven, and with all the projects I have going on, they take up a lot of my time. I like to work hard and just be as focused on work as possible.”
