Kendall Jenner has been linked to One Direction’s Harry Styles and Los Angeles Lakers player Jordan Clarkson in recent weeks, but which man is the model dating?
For the past few years, Kendall Jenner has done an impressive job keeping her love life secret. But earlier this year, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star appeared to go public with her romance with Styles as they enjoyed a short vacation on a yacht.
Just after the New Year, Kendall Jenner and Styles were seen getting cozy with one another as they spent time with friends, including Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi. But while reports immediately began circulating in regard to the romance, Kendall Jenner and Styles’ relationship appeared to quickly fizzle out once their vacation came to an end.
Weeks later, it was Clarkson who People Magazine claimed Kendall Jenner was “secretly dating.”

According to the magazine, Kendall Jenner was impressed with Clarkson’s kind behavior, and the pair had allegedly been enjoying one another’s company for months. However, a short time after the magazine’s report, a photo of Kendall Jenner and Styles together in Los Angeles hit social media, and the masses were once again confused about who Kendall Jenner was dating.
“[Kendall Jenner’s] not denying a thing about her dating Jordan, but she’s not admitting it either,” a source told OK! Magazine last week.
While Kendall Jenner remained silent, the report claimed she was only humoring the idea of a romance with Clarkson in order to taunt Styles.
“No one seriously thinks she would go for someone like Jordan, having watched her friends and some of her sisters be cheated on by basketball players,” the source said.
Instead, Kendall Jenner was reportedly hoping the rumors regarding her relationship with Clarkson would let Styles know “she can play that game too.” In fact, the source claimed Kendall Jenner “got her mom to plant this story about Jordan” to make Styles jealous.
“[Kendall Jenner] has met up with Jordan a bunch of times but it’s definitely not serious,” the source said.

While multiple reports have claimed Kendall Jenner and Styles initially parted ways because he was unwilling to commit, another report states that the One Direction star has since had a change of heart. However, because of their past issues, Kendall Jenner hasn’t been sold on the idea of an official romance with Styles.
According to a Now magazine report in April, via OK! Magazine, Kendall Jenner is said to be “reluctant to go public with him because of trust issues.”
“[Kendall Jenner] is holding back because she doesn’t trust Harry enough to commit to him, especially with the whole world watching,” the magazine’s source explained. “Keeping people guessing takes the pressure off – going public would create a frenzy. But Harry’s started to complain about all the sneaking around they’ve been doing.”
Days after Kendall Jenner and Styles were spotted together in Los Angeles, Kendall Jenner was featured in a video online that showed Clarkson jumping over her during a visit to Coachella with friends. Clarkson was also included in a Coachella video shared by Kendall Jenner’s sister, Kylie.
Despite the contradicting reports, the latest claim, made by Movie News Guide on May 5, states Kendall Jenner has moved on from Styles with Clarkson.
For more Kendall Jenner, tune into Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 12 on Sunday nights at 9 p.m. on the E! Network. No word yet on whether or not Styles or Clarkson will be seen.
