Kendall Jenner is laughing off the rumors that she’s dating Tyler, the Creator. Both the 29-year-old model and the rapper have taken to social media to address the rumors with their own inside joke.
It all started when Kendall Jenner was spotted having dinner with both Tyler, the Creator and her friend Hailey Baldwin, which most reports failed to point out, according to Complex. Of course, only the photos of Tyler and Kendall were photographed and shared by the paparazzi, fueling the dating rumors. There were also those photos of Kendall and Tyler’s hangout on her Instagram page.
Kendall took wind of the dating rumors and decided to tweet her friend about it, writing, “Apparently we’re dating.”
Then, the Odd Future star cracked a joke saying they are “both gay.”
According to People, Kendall and Tyler are “super, super, super close friends” and have been for a while now. Tyler told Billboard last year that he’s “really good friends” with the reality star. He even playfully taunted her during his 2015 Coachella set.
Jenner, according to Us Weekly, is “full-on” dating rapper A$AP Rocky. But, an insider revealed to People that Jenner isn’t dating anyone seriously right now.
“Kendall is just having fun and not taking anything too seriously with anybody right now,” the source simply stated.
The source added that Kendall only had a fling with basketball player Jordan Clarkson. As for the A$AP Rocky dating rumors, it’s not that serious. In fact, Kendall is just one of the guys.
“She’s not going to settle down with anyone right now,” added the source. “She has a huge group of guys around her at all times. All her friends joke about how she’s always surrounded by a bunch of dudes.”
However, Kendall was just spotted wearing A$AP Rocky’s beanie in Beverly Hills. She was seen carrying a beanie hat from his clothing line sold on Karmaloop, according to a report via Teen Vogue. The black hat had the rapper’s stage name embroidered on it in white. Kendall was photographed wearing a mustard yellow camisole with high-waisted light-wash denim jeans, a black studded belt, and round-framed sunglasses.

This latest sighting comes after A$AP Rocky’s step-mom blasted the supermodel in an interview with the Daily Mail. On Monday, August 15, Kari Mayers gave her reason why Jenner will never be good enough for her son.
“He can do much better. I’ve heard all about him dating Kendall and I don’t like it. Everything I hear about the Kardashians makes me think they are a bad family for Rakim to be involved with. They are just not the kind of people I’d like to see him hanging around with. I don’t want him being dragged in that circus, he is too good for that and can do so much better.”
In retaliation, A$AP Rocky dropped the “l” word to Kendall, according to a report via Hollywood Life. And, apparently, Kendall feels the same way about him.
“It’s looking like his stepmom just brought them closer. He even told Kendall the magic three words – I love you – and he really meant that. She said it back to him, too.”
According to the source, the starlet “broke down crying” and had “second thoughts” about their relationship when she heard what his stepmom said about her. Then, A$AP calmed her down, which led the couple to reveal their true feelings.
Kendall and A$AP have been linked since he was spotted with her at New York Fashion Week in February 2016. The pair were then seen having dinner on July 24, and then Kendall made an appearance on A$AP’s Snapchat when they went to Target together. Then, Kendall brought him along to Kylie Jenner’s 19th birthday party at The Nice Guy on August 10. It seems like things have been heating up from there.
