Joe Jonas and Gigi Hadid are real life cupids! They came up with an elaborate scheme one night in Vegas to hook up Kendall Jenner and Nick Jonas, and according to a new report, it worked!
Gigi Hadid, 20 wants her BFF Kendall Jenner, 19, “around all the time,” so she teamed up with her new boyfriend Joe Jonas, 25, to play matchmaker, according to a new report! Gigi and Joe invited Kendall to join them at the VIP lounge at Las Vegas’ Hyde Bellagio on July 25. The special guest that night was (drumroll) Nick Jonas, 22! The two hit it off, as planned — so exciting! Find out more about this blossoming romance!
That night in Vegas, “Gigi and Joe were trying to encourage” a relationship, an insider spilled to US Weekly. “Gigi wants Kendall around all the time. She thinks it would be fun for all of them to hang out,” which is why she came up with this plan in the first place!
“[Kendall and Nick] plan to see each other again soon,” the insider said. The two celebs are super busy though, traveling the world and what not, so for now, sources say they are getting to know each other through text messages, but “they had a flirty chemistry from the start.”
“There is an obvious attraction. Nick absolutely thinks she’s hot,” the source said. She’s hot, he’s hot — it just all seems pretty perfect to us! So, why haven’t they made this new relationship public yet? “They want to make sure the attention is worth it before they really go for it,” the source explained. “When they are ready and it turns official, we’ll start seeing photos.”
We know that Gigi hasn’t been the only one encouraging this new couple to date, Joe brought it up to his little bro weeks ago! “[Joe] has mentioned it a few times and so has Gigi,” Nick told The Mirror in July. “We’ll see, I don’t know. We’ll play it by ear. I wouldn’t be opposed to it.”
