Kendall Jenner can never seem to escape the dating rumors, no matter how hard she tries. The supermodel has now been linked to basketball player D’Angelo Russell.
Kendall Jenner first sparked the dating rumors when she was spotted cheering on Los Angeles Lakers rookie player D’Angelo Russell at a few of his games. Either the Jenner sister is a huge fan of the Lakers, or she’s just a huge fan of the player. But sources tell TMZ Sports that Jenner and Russell are just friends at the moment.
One source added, “They are not dating,” while another source confirmed, “Kendall is not into him.”
Kendall was only at the game because she’s good friends with one of the Dallas Mavericks players and his girlfriend. The source added, “They’re friends, but that’s about it.”
That hasn’t stopped celebrity gossip blogs from reporting about Kendall Jenner’s so-called dating life. A recent report via the Hollywood Life claims that the Chanel model already had a fling with the b-ball player, and his friend, Kobe Bryant, knows all about it.
“One person who definitely took notice of the romance rumors is D’Angelo’s teammate Kobe. He has been teasing the rookie about it, saying he’s already gone Hollywood. Kobe really gives him a hard time saying he better worry more about being a professional basketball player than becoming a reality star. It’s playful hazing, but you know Kobe really wants him focused on the team and not Kendall.”
It would be hard not to focus since Kendall Jenner is one of this generation’s most beautiful models. The source then added that Kendall is “finally ready to fall in love,” and things are heating up between here and D’Angelo. This alleged snitch said that their relationship was in the very early stages.
If you haven’t noticed, there is a trend of Kendall Jenner dating rumors that circulate and then get denied. The oldest Jenner sister has been previously linked to Orlando Bloom, Nick Jonas, Chandler Parsons, Lewis Hamilton, Harry Styles, and Justin Bieber. But she’s never really been spotted kissing or hugging any of these men. If these rumors are true, then Jenner is really good at hiding her relationships.
It seems like Kendall is more focused on her modeling career rather than her dating life. Orlando was the latest man to deny the dating rumors. He said that he doesn’t even know the model, but would be interested if someone gave him her number.
“I wanted the opportunity to clear this up, I actually did not ‘connect’ with Justin Bieber. And I don’t know Kendall Jenner, but if anyone has her number I would love it.”
Bloom made the announcement while accepting his Britannia Humanitarian Award at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 30. During his acceptance speech, he also referenced his 2014 fight with the Canadian pop star.
The very last Kendall Jenner dating rumor that circulated around the internet was the model’s sudden interest in a particular self-help book. Even if she’s not openly dating the men, that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want to get out there and date. An alleged insider told NOW Magazine that Kendall has been reading Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man by Steve Harvey, who’s a good friend of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
“Steve is a family friend of the Kardashians. He could see Kendall was getting a lot of male attention and wasn’t sure how to deal with it. He gave her some advice and told her to read the book and she’s hooked. She’s been telling friends it’s changed the way she thinks about guys.”
In her recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the older Jenner sister said the reason why she keeps her relationships private is that she doesn’t like everyone speculating on her love life.
“I try to keep things as private as I can, but when it comes to a point, it’s just not a big deal.”
