Is Kendall Jenner caught in between two men? As her friends, including Gigi and Bella Hadid, enjoy romances with musicians, Zayn Malik and The Weeknd, respectively, reports claim the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star may be on the brink of a relationship with either Chris Brown or Harry Styles.
At the start of 2016, Kendall Jenner appeared to be involved in a romance with Styles, of One Direction, and the two were seen cuddling with one another on a yacht. The rumored pair were also seen together in Los Angeles a short time later, when they attended the birthday celebration of a mutual friend. However, during their L.A. outing, Kendall Jenner and Styles arrived and left the event separately, and ever since, they haven’t been seen together at all.

After photos of Kendall Jenner and Styles hit the web, Kendall Jenner’s older half sister, Khloe Kardashian, spoke out about their romance, claiming she believed they were dating.
“Do I think they’re dating? Yes,” Khloe told Entertainment Tonight of Kendall Jenner and Styles in January. “I don’t know if they’re, like, boyfriend-girlfriend. Nowadays I don’t know. People are weird with stuff. So, I don’t know their title. But I mean, they were in St. Barts together hanging out, so to me that’s dating. I would call that dating. [But] I don’t know what they are. You know, you have the have ‘the talk’ [and] I don’t know if they’ve had that talk yet.”
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner was seen with Brown throughout the month of March. In addition to partaking in a recreation of the viral phenomenon “Damn Daniel,” which was later shared online, Kendall Jenner and Brown were seen at fashion week events in Paris, France, and also had dinner together when they were in town.

“It’s kind of complicated with both guys,” an insider told Heat magazine, via The Mirror, on March 22. “[Kendall Jenner] finds it hard to trust either of them. Both of them seem pretty keen on her, though.”
Although Brown may be “keen” on Kendall Jenner, a source claimed on March 9 that he hadn’t yet made his move — despite their multiple hang out sessions.
“[Brown] and [Kendall Jenner] and are mad tight and there is attraction on both on both sides of this friendship, especially from Chris,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Look, Kendall’s hot! She’s a legit runaway model… Being a model alone makes [Kendall Jenner] a 10. She’s super cool and dorky like Chris. They both have crazy fun when they’re in each others company.”
“She’s perfect for him but Breezy hasn’t made an official move on her. He’s really enjoying being her friend now,” the source explained. “He doesn’t want to blow up a good thing by committing to a monogamous sexual relationship with her. He’s not ready and neither is she.”
Plus, Kendall Jenner and Brown have been friends for years, so if Brown isn’t 100 percent sure that a romance is in the cards, he likely doesn’t want to mess up their relationship.
“If and when Chris decides that [Kendall Jenner] is the one he wants to be serious with he will approach her correctly. He’ll ask Kris Jenner for permission,” the source added.
Kendall Jenner and her family return to the E! Network this spring in Keeping Up With The Kardashians Season 12. A premiere date for the new installment has not yet been set.
