Is Kendall Jenner Dating Drake? Couple Gets Super Close In Christmas Photo: ‘I Really Like Kendall’

Could Kendall Jenner be dating rapper Drake? In a photo shared by Drake on December 28, he and Kendall Jenner were seen cheek-to-cheek during Kris Jenner’s annual holiday bash. Right away, fans flooded his Instagram account with comments about their potential relationship.

For years, Drake has been close with Kendall Jenner and her family, and recently performed at Kendall Jenner’s 20th birthday celebration in Los Angeles.

“I really like Kylie a lot, I really like [Kendall Jenner], you know, everybody is really nice,” Drake said in a recent interview with E! News. “Khloe’s really nice, and obviously, the queen of it all, Kris, she’s my favorite!”

During the same interview, Drake discussed his dream girlfriend, revealing, “I need somebody funny. I need somebody driven. I like unique goals… I like to hear about school, you know, I like to hear about wanting to be a business owner. In my world, that’s unique.”

According to Drake, in his world, “modeling” and “acting” ambitions are less unique, which may not bode well for Kendall Jenner, who is known for her worldwide modeling success. That said, however, this isn’t the first time Kendall Jenner and Drake have been linked. In November, a Hollywood Life source claimed the rumored new couple had been flirting at her birthday party.

“Even though it was [Kendall Jenner]’s party, Drake owned it! He was the man. All the girls, including [Kendall Jenner] and Gigi [Hadid] were low key flirting with him, but all in good fun, of course.”

Around the same time, Kendall Jenner was also linked to Los Angeles Lakers player D’Angelo Russell, but despite her courtside appearance at one of his games, TMZ insisted there was nothing romantic happening between the pair.

Since gaining fame on her family’s reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kendall Jenner has been infamously private in regard to her personal life. Even if she and Drake are in a relationship, it’s doubtful that fans would know.

Although Kendall Jenner dated a man named Julian Brooks in high school, her personal life has been quite confusing ever since. That said, Kendall Jenner has been linked to a number of men, including Ryan Nassif, nephew of Botched’s Dr. Paul Nassif and former boyfriend of actress Bella Thorne, Harry Styles, Lewis Hamilton, and 5 Seconds of Summer’s Ashton Irwin, the current boyfriend of Bryana Holly (who, ironically, once dated Kendall Jenner’s older brother, Brody Jenner).

“It’s not always easy, but I don’t know, I just like to keep my private life private,” Kendall Jenner told Entertainment Tonight Online about her decision to keep her relationships a secret. “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.”

Kendall Jenner has also been linked to Justin Bieber, but now that her sister, Kourtney Kardashian, is said to be involved in a months-long romance with the younger singer, as Us Weekly was first to reveal earlier this month, that rumor appears to be untrue.
