It seems another Kardashian/Jenner girl has a thing for athletes, as news has surfaced of a relationship between Kendall Jenner and Los Angeles Lakers player Jordan Clarkson.
While neither of the two have confirmed the relationship yet, JustJared spotted them out together in West Hollywood and snapped tons of pics of them laughing together in the backseat their ride.
Read more out the budding romance below.
1. Kendall Jenner & Jordan Clarkson Have Been Secretly Dating for Months
“They have been secretly dating for months and they are super into each other,” a source revealed to People. “He is super sweet and a total gentleman and Kendall loves that,” they added.
2. They Were Seen Together at a West Hollywood Hot Spot
Jenner was spotted with Clarkson at West Hollywood hot spot The Nice Guy Wednesday, March 30, according to US Weekly. The outing came right after the Lakers beat the Miami Heat 102-100.
The model, 20, and basketball player, 23, were seen laughing in the backseat of an Uber SUV when they arrived, and they made a point to exit the venue separately at the end of the night, says People magazine.
In photos, Jenner can be seen holding a purse up in front of her face so that press can’t tell it’s her. However, when she walks out of The Nice Guy, she didn’t cover her face, which leads us to believe she doesn’t want to press to see her with Clarkson. Could she be trying to keep their relationship private for as long as possible?
3. Jenner Has Been Linked to Clarkson’s Teammate D’Angelo Russell
Jenner was linked to Jordan’s friend and Lakers teammate D’Angelo Russell, 20, when she was spotted courtside at the Lakers game Nov. 1, 2015, according to HollywoodLife.com. Rumors started swirling that she was there to support Russell, who’s in hot water right now because of a leaked video he recorded of Nick Young, another Lakers player. In the video, Young discusses all the women he’s been with, although he’s currently engaged to Iggy Azalea.
However, if Jenner and Clarkson have been “secretly dating for months,” maybe it was all a rouse and she was actually there to support her secret beau, Clarkson.
That would explain TMZ claimed Russell and Jenner were just friends. “They’re not dating,” sources told TMZ. “Kendall is not into him.”
While she might be not a huge fan of THAT Laker, she could have eyes for another one…ahem…Jordan Clarkson…ahem.
4. Hollywood Life Reports Jenner Dumped Harry Styles to Find a Man Who Can ‘Actually Commit’
Jenner and Harry Styles went public with their relationship in 2013 when he admitted to going out to dinner with her. The reality-TV star has been on and off with One Direction’s Styles ever since, according to US Weekly. The two went on a PDA-filled vacation in early 2016 to St. Bart’s says US Weekly, and the photos were leaked just a few weeks ago, revealing how just close the couple had gotten. Even Jenner’s sister Khloe Kardashian admitted they were a couple; a few months ago she told Entertainment Weekly that Jenner and Styles were dating, but maybe not boyfriend and girlfriend yet.
However, the two have split since then, according to HollywoodLife.com.
“At this point in her life, Kendall is ready for a serious relationship,” and insider told HollywoodLife.com. They continued:
“She thought she could just go with the flow with Harry, but it’s just not making her happy. Harry is too loosey-goosey for her. It’s pretty much what happened the first time around for them; Kendall wanted more and Harry wasn’t ready to fully commit. They aren’t on bad terms or anything, but Kendall isn’t going to wait around for Harry to make the next move, which would be to make a serious commitment and follow up with concrete actions. She wants a guy who’s going to walk the walk.”
Other outlets are reporting the same thing. “She really likes Harry but he’s like any other young rockstar and has trouble committing,” an insider told People.
Maybe Clarkson is the mature man she’s been looking for.
5. Clarkson Was Previously Linked to Another Supermodel, Chanel Iman
This isn’t Clarkson’s first time at the rodeo. The Lakers player used to date supermodel Chanel Iman, who is also a Victoria’s Secret model. This guy has good taste.
TMZ spotted the couple at a club together in May 2015, and got shots of them holding hands on the way out.
Iman is a few years older than Clarkson and has also been linked to A$AP Rocky, who’s been linked to the other Jenner sister, Kylie…is it just us or is a little incestuous?
