Kendall Jenner has been spotted looking “extremely coupley” with LA Lakers point guard Jordan Clarkson at Drake’s American Music Awards after party in Los Angeles overnight. According to E News, the second youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan spent the majority of the night at the side of the 24-year-old basketball star, taking rare breaks to dance with her friends and imbibe at the bar.
Jenner arrived at West Hollywood hotspot Delilah after her show-stopping appearance at Sunday’s AMA’s. After a quick outfit change, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star entered the club wearing a sleeveless white t-shirt tied to expose her stomach paired with black pants. According to sources, Kendall arrived with her squad in tow including Karlie Kloss and Justine Skye. The group was confined to a private booth where witnesses saw Jenner’s face light up when Clarkson entered.
“You could see that they’re really into each other and they certainly weren’t hiding it.”
According to E News, Jenner jumped out of the booth over several friends to greet the basketball star. The two were reportedly attached at the hip for much of the night with Clarkson spotted resting his hand on Jenner’s thigh and the model reciprocating.
E News sources set the scene.
“They both were smiling from ear to ear. You could tell that they didn’t care about anyone else and, to each other; they were the only two in the room. Several times it looked like they were going to kiss, but refrained.”
While the pair separated on a few occasions to allow Jenner to let loose on the dance floor – she reportedly incorporated a light fixture into her dancing when the DJ played Rae Sremmurd’s viral hit “Black Beatles” – they didn’t stray far from each other all night and were seen locked into a bear hug with Clarkson giving Jenner several kisses on the cheek.
The pair spent the night partying with Drake as well as reported guests Heidi Klum, Diplo, Fifth Harmony, Niall Horan, and Shawn Mendes as well as late arrival The Weeknd. Drake’s Dad was also in attendance, showing support for his superstar son while stopping to pose for pictures in the club dressed in a killer all white ensemble.
It has been a big week for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star who just last weekend sent fans and media the world over into a meltdown after she deactivated her Instagram account. Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres during an appearance on her show on Wednesday, Jenner explained.
“I just wanted to detox, just wanted a little bit of a break. I feel like I would wake up in the morning and I would look at it first thing. I would go to bed and it was the last thing I would look at. I felt a little dependent on it.”
Much to the delight of fans, the detox was short lived and Jenner was back on the platform on Sunday, posting a series of shots from what appears to be the brief LA stop of brother- in-law Kanye West’s “Saint Pablo Tour.” While the new posts highlight Jenner’s creative side, many have noticed her absence from the photos.
Whether this is a brief respite from social media selfies or a sign of Jenner following in the footsteps of sister Kim and taking a step back from over-sharing online remains to be seen.
While Jenner and Clarkson have been spotted together on several occasions throughout the year, they are yet to publicly confirm a relationship.
