Zayn Malik may be crushing on Kylie Jenner, but he had his eyes on another Kardashian gal at the reality star’s 18th birthday party on Aug. 9 — her sister, Kendall Jenner! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Zayn got super flirty with the model at the bash. Could they be a hot new couple?
It’s been less than a month since Zayn Malik, 22, ended his engagement to Perrie Edwards, 22, but he’s already on the prowl! The singer attended Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party in West Hollywood on Aug. 9, and was seen spending a lot of time with Kendall Jenner, 19, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.

“Zayn was a major flirt with Kendall at Kylie’s party,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He was with her most of the night, laughing a lot, and seemed to feel the most comfortable when he was with her. A ton of girls were trying to get Zayn’s attention, but he just seemed interested in Kendall. She was smiling and didn’t seem to mind Zayn giving her so much attention!’
Interestingly, the 22-year-old originally seemed to have his eye on Kylie — he favorited a photo of her on Twitter just days after splitting from Perrie — but the birthday girl spent most of the night with her man, Tyga, 25. “She and Tyga were joined at the hip,” our insider explains. I mean, he did buy her a $320,000 Ferrari, after all!
Even if Zayn was trying to hang out with Kylie at the party, it definitely seems the rapper doesn’t find him to be much of a threat. “Tyga doesn’t really get too jealous,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “If anything, it gets Tyga excited that other dudes are crushing on his girl. He sees how Kanye [West] handles other girls hitting on Kim [Kardashian] and he wants to handle it th same. He feels like it’s a compliment — he wants other guys to be jealous of what he has.”
Lucky for Zayn, Kendall, who wore a daring maxi skirt and House Of CB crop top to the party, is 100% single. But he better move fast, because her pals, Gigi Hadid, 20, and Joe Jonas, 25, are on a mission to set her up with Nick Jonas! “We’ll play it by ear,” Nick said, of the romance possibilities. “I wouldn’t be opposed to it.” Nick Jonas or Zayn Malik!? Not terrible options, even for a supermodel!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kendall and Zayn would make a good couple?
