Kendall Jenner has been secretly dating Lakers basketball player Jordan Clarkson, a source recently revealed to Us Weekly. Kendall, who has been in the headlines over her recent public split from One Direction band member Harry Styles, was seen out with Clarkson at Hollywood hot spot The Nice Guy after the Lakers scored a win against Miami Heat on March 30.
According to the Jenner insider, Kendall was seen in the backseat of an SUV arriving at The Nice Guy with Jordan as the pair laughed over something they both found hilarious. Jenner was wearing black leather pants and a purple jacket as she entered the establishment. Although they spent time together, both Kendall and Jordan left the establishment separately.
Kendall was also recently spotted court-side at a Lakers game with sister Kylie Jenner as the pair enjoyed the game on March 16.
Hollywood Life reports that Kendall and Clarkson were introduced by Khloe Kardashian after Jenner’s older sister met the basketball player. A source revealed that Khloe “thought he would be perfect for her sister,” but since Jenner was dating Harry Styles at the time, Khloe backed off.
Once Kendall and Styles split, however, it was game on. Jenner, Kardashian, and Clarkson “all ended up going out as a group” along with some of Jordan’s friends. “The two of them ended up really hitting it off,” the source confided. Hollywood Life confirms that the couple have been dating for months, and Kendall couldn’t have picked a nicer guy.
“He is super sweet and Kendall loves that,” the source revealed. Kendall, who is notoriously private about her love life, has not confirmed that she’s dating the basketball player, but Jordan “is a genuine nice guy and treats her like a person and not like a celebrity.”
According to the Jenner insider, it gets better. Jordan “doesn’t care who her family is and they just have a good time together.”
Kendall, who clearly has a lighter side, also helped sister Kourtney play an April Fool’s Day joke, making fun of all the dating rumors about her. In a series of Snapchat videos, Kourtney “caught” Kendall in bed with ex-boyfriend Scott Disick, and filmed her “reactions.” Kourtney and Scott dated for years before recently splitting up after Scott was caught cheating, and the couple share three children.
The videos make light of the constant tabloid rumors that Kendall is sleeping with Scott. Snapchat allows users to share short videos, and in the first couple videos, Kourtney appears to be looking for Kendall. In the third, however, Kardashian opens a door to find her sister as she “catches” Jenner cuddling and appearing to sleep in bed with the father of her children.
“Wait, who is she in here with?” listeners can hear Kourtney ask, just as she realizes exactly who Kendall is with. Kardashian then exclaims “[w]hat the…” just before the video cuts off, leaving viewers to wonder what’s really going on.
In the final video, Kourtney follows Scott as he “storms” out of the house, calling him “sick” and “inappropriate” as she lectures him on his bad choices. In the nick of time, however, Scott shouts “April fools!,” revealing that it was all a prank.
Kendall recently made headlines for her collaborations with makeup giant Estee Lauder, with whom Jenner developed a collection titled Estee Edit. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was in New York City to support the launch of the collection. Jenner appeared at a Sephora to thousands of screaming fans, who lined up to purchase the makeup kit and grab selfies with Kendall during the public meet and greet.
