Are Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner dating or WHAT?! The ‘Levels’ singer has finally set the record straight on the rumors, and something tells us that matchmakers Gigi Hadid and Joe Jonas are NOT going to be happy with his response!
Nick Jonas, 22, and Kendall Jenner, 19, were first linked back in July 2015 after it was reported that Gigi Hadid, 20, and her boyfriend Joe Jonas, 25, had set the two up while partying one weekend in Las Vegas. But did their attempt at matchmaking really result in a love connection? The “Levels” singer set the record straight about their alleged romance in a new interview on Aug. 20.
Good news ladies, it appears he’s still on the market! “We are not dating,” Nick told E! News in a new interview. “Kendall is great and naturally with her being good friends with Gigi and with Joe and Gigi dating, there are time we’ll be in the same place and we all hang out.” As for any romance though, the “Jealous” singer insists there is nothing there.
Of course, that’s not to say that he isn’t still open to the idea of love. In a separate interview with Access Hollywood, Nick revealed that while he is open to having drinks or dinner with someone, he prefers to keep things “light and casual” following his split from Olivia Culpo, 23, back in June 2015. “[I’m] dating, hanging out with people,” he said. “But not in a relationship and [that’s] probably the best thing for this very busy time in my life. I’m trying to take the time to work out this next phase of my life and be single the right way,” Nick explained. “I [also] like being able to work as hard as I want. I’m incredibly driven and with all the projects I have going on, they take up a lot of my time. I like to work hard and just be as focused on work as possible.”
There’s certainly no denying that Nick has a lot going on these days. The former Disney Channel star dropped “Levels,” the first single off his upcoming second album on Aug. 21, and is currently getting ready to kick off his “Nick Jonas Live In Concert Tour” on September 6 in Hershey, Penn. The music video (which is guaranteed to be super sexy) will be released on Aug. 30, and Nick will be performing “Levels” at the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show that same day. So yeah, sounds like a high-profile relationship is just about the last thing Nick needs on his plate right now.
