Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky were first linked to one another last month when they were spotted out for a date in Paris. According to the magazine’s report, Kendall Jenner, who was in France to attend Menswear Fashion Week, was seen walking through the streets of the City of Love with the 27-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers.
Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky also enjoyed a dinner date at L’Avenue restaurant before heading to Paris’ Cartel Club for a night of dancing.
Then, weeks later, Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky were spotted on yet another dinner date at Mr. C in the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Prior to their dinner dates, the model and musician were said to be close friends and in February, A$AP Rocky was present when Kendall Jenner and her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, 18, launched their PacSun line in New York City.
“He thinks Kendall is hot as hell,” an insider close to the Harlem-born rapper told Us Weekly. “He’s just having fun.”
Meanwhile, Kendall Jenner appears to still be involved in a relationship with Jordan Clarkson. Although the model hasn’t confirmed the nature of their romance, rumors regarding their relationship continue to make the rounds and just days ago, Kendall Jenner was spotted driving his car.
According to a report by X17 Online, Kendall Jenner and her sister, Khloe Kardashian, arrived to her new home in West Hollywood in Clarkson’s Mercedes McLaren earlier this week to check on the progress of the construction on the home. Then, later in the day, the women were seen in Beverly Hills having lunch and arriving to a dentist’s office a short time later.
In addition, Kendall Jenner was seen in the front row at Clarkson’s recent basketball game in Los Angeles on Sunday night, which further suggested they were a couple.

Earlier this week, a report surfaced claiming Kendall Jenner’s sister, Kim Kardashian, wasn’t on board with her potential relationship with Clarkson because she didn’t find him to be famous enough for the model.
Kim Kardashian is “firmly against the union” between Kendall Jenner and Jordan Clarkson, a source revealed to Life & Style magazine, according to a report by Gossip Cop on July 20. “Kim thinks Jordan isn’t famous enough. He’s a nice guy, but he barely has 150,000 followers on Twitter and she’d never heard of him until [Kendall Jenner] brought him up.”
Kardashian “told [Kendall Jenner] that dating Jordan isn’t a smart move, and that she should be dating a famous rapper or musician if she wants to gain popularity,” the source alleged. “Kim worries that Jordan is using [Kendall Jenner] to boost his career.”
A short time after the article was shared, a rep told the outlet the magazine’s accusations regarding Kendall Jenner’s rumored romance with Clarkson were “false.”
