Introducing Young Hollywood's newest couple: Kendall Jenner is dating Nick Jonas
Kendall Jenner and Nick Jonas have a “flirty chemistry” according to reports.
The 19-year-old model is rumoured to be dating the Jealous singer after being set up by her friend Gigi Hadid and Nick’s brother Joe, who are a couple. After Nick’s break-up from Olivia Culpo in June, their matchmaking seems to have come at the right time.
“They had a flirty chemistry from the start,” a source told Us Weekly of their text exchanges. “Nick was single and looking to date and there was an obvious attraction. He absolutely thinks she’s hot.”
Gigi and Kendall are close friends thanks to their respective modelling careers. And it’s believed that the 20-year-old’s desire to have her pal close by as much as possible is one of the reasons for her matchmaking.
“Gigi wants Kendall around all the time. She thinks it would be fun for all of them to hang out,” the source added. "They are all going to end up hanging out regardless, so it seems like a simple situation, which could be a lot of fun.”
Kendall and the 22-year-old are reportedly taking their fledgling romance slowly and away from the glare of the media.
“When they're ready and it turns official, we’ll start seeing photos,” the insider said.
Nick recently admitted that he wouldn’t be against hooking up with Kendall.
“[Joe] has mentioned that a few times and so has Gigi,” he told British newspaper The Mirror. “We’ll see, I don’t know. We’ll play it by ear. I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”
Nick had previously dated former Miss Universe Olivia for close to two years until their split in June. Meanwhile Kendall has been linked to Harry Styles and Formula One driver Lewis Hamilton in the past.
