It’s been a busy week for Kendall Jenner! The 20-year-old Victoria Secret model was spotted over the weekend with her now not-so-secret romantic interest, Los Angeles Lakers star Jordan Clarkson. Jenner also recently spurned big-sister Kim’s wishes by getting some hot new ink. In the midst of all this, jilted on-again/off-again boyfriend Harry Styles begged Jenner to go public with their relationship.
However, according to several sources, including People Magazine, Kendall Jenner and 23-year-old Jordan Clarkson have been seeing each other for months, with People also stating:
“They (Jenner/Clarkson) keep things low-key when they’re in public, but in private they’re very much together and affectionate.”
Those affections were on full display as the young Hollywood power couple gallivanted about at the annual Coachella Music Festival. Much to Styles’ dismay, Jenner pointed out to sources that she is smitten by Clarkson due to the roundballer’s “sweetness and gentlemanly ways.”
According to Hollywood Life, Jenner’s other notable big-sister, Khloe, played matchmaker between the two. The 31-year-old reality star, who herself shows a penchant for NBA players, felt as though after meeting Clarkson he would be an ideal match for her younger sister. However, at the time, Kendall Jenner was seeing One Direction star Harry Styles. When Jenner’s fling with Styles fizzled, Khole introduced her li’l sis to Clarkson, and the two hit it off.
Though Jenner says she and Clarkson have been talking since last fall, Jenner and Clarkson were first seen together publicly at the trendy celeb hot-spot Nice Guy in late March.
All this hullabaloo concerning her new beau must’ve made Kendall feel as though some new ink was necessary, even if sister Kim Kardashian didn’t agree. Jenner had these comments for People regarding her new tats:
“Even though Kim always says, ‘Don’t put a bumper sticker on a Bentley,’ I really like tattoos. Right now I have two: They’re both in white ink on my two middle fingers. The one on my right hand is a full heart to represent an angel and my left is a broken heart — kind of like the devil side.”
Sounds like the Vogue model is exploring her creative side. When asked if she planned to have more work done in the future, Kendall replied:
“I definitely want more eventually, I just don’t know what I would get right now, I don’t have anything in mind. You’ll just have to wait and see!”
Jenner was accompanied by best friend and fellow model Hailey Baldwin, 20, when she had her most recent body art applied. Baldwin, of course, is the daughter of famed actor and director Stephen Baldwin. Jenner and Baldwin already had matching tattoos etched on one another last year.
It certainly seems as though Jenner is Hollywood’s new “it” girl at the moment. Whether she’s out on the town with her man, getting inked up with her best friend, or having mega-stars such as Harry Styles pine for her affections, the daughter of Caitlyn Jenner is on everybody’s lips.
