Kendall Jenner and D’Angelo Russell have been tied to one another since late September, but in the weeks that have followed the initial reports, there has been no confirmation by either party, and conflicting rumors continue to hit the web.

After Kendall Jenner was seen getting flirty with Los Angeles Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell court side in Los Angeles (see photo above), rumors began swirling regarding the couple’s possible romance. Then, on October 27, Rumorfix shared details about Kendall Jenner’s new alleged love, claiming she and Russell met over the summer, but didn’t start dating until recently.
While the photo of Kendall Jenner and Russell quickly caused a stir on Twitter, the buzz over their romance continued to down in the weeks that followed — at least until Kendall Jenner showed up to a Los Angeles Lakers game at the Staples Center over the weekend. At that point, the rumor mill once again was booted into overdrive.

Still, Kendall Jenner’s romance remains unconfirmed, and according to TMZ, she and Russell are “not dating.” On November 3, a source told the website Kendall Jenner and the Lakers rookie were “friends, but that’s about it.” In addition, said the source, Kendall Jenner was in attendance at the team’s weekend game due to her friendship with a player from the Dallas Mavericks, as well as his girlfriend.
One day prior, Hollywood Life revealed new details about what’s going on between Kendall Jenner and Russell, revealing TMZ‘s report may only be partially true.
“[Kendall Jenner] and D’Angelo have hung out with friends, and there definitely seems to be a serious flirtation there. Sparks fly whenever they are in the same room.”
However, while Kendall Jenner and Russell appear to have a connection, they also have very busy careers, hers in modeling and his with the Lakers.
“They haven’t spent too much time together unfortunately,” the source explained.
Instead, Kendall Jenner continues to travel the globe to tend to her numerous fashion roles, and for the next several months, Russell will be traveling the county along with his team, who began their 2015-2016 season just one week ago.
In addition to taking in the Lakers game over the weekend, Kendall Jenner also got her birthday festivities started. While the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star didn’t turn 20 until today, November 3, she hosted an A-list birthday bash at The Nice Guy earlier this week, and in attendance were several famous pals, including Drake, Justin Bieber, and Nick Jonas, whom Kendall Jenner was linked to earlier this year (Nick is the younger brother of Joe Jonas, who just happens to be dating Kendall Jenner’s best friend, Gigi Hadid). Also at the party were Kendall Jenner’s sisters, including Kylie, Kim, and Kourtney Kardashian.
Earlier this year, Kendall Jenner spoke to Entertainment Tonight, revealing why she’s chosen to keep her love life private in the years since she became famous.
“It’s not always easy, but I don’t know, I just like to keep my private life private. I try my best, but at the same time, I try not to let being out with someone affect my everyday life. Like, if I want to go out and grab a smoothie with a friend who’s a male, I’m not gonna let the paparazzi stop me from doing that and living my life and just being a normal person.”
For more Kendall Jenner, tune into Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 11, premiering on Sunday, November 15, at 9 p.m. on the E! Network.
