Is D’Angelo Russell ready to be keeping up with Kendall Jenner? The model was spotted court side at a recent L.A. Lakers game looking pretty into him, but are the two heading towards a hot new romance? We’ve learned the truth about where things stand.
Kendall Jenner, 20, was dolled up to the max at a Nov. 1 Los Angeles Lakers game, and many were left wondering if it was for her rumored new love interest, rookie D’Angelo Russell, 19. Her sisters definitely have a history of relationships with NBA stars, so naturally we considered the possibility of Kendall being the next to have a permanent court side seat at Staples Center. Read on for what’s really going on with these two.
Despite claims of a blossoming new love, “They’re not dating” according to TMZ. A source told the site that, “They’re friends, but that’s about it.” The site claims that Kendall was at the game because she’s friends with one of the Dallas Mavericks players and his girlfriend.
But hey, many great love affairs started out as friendships so we’re holding out hope for these two. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported EXCLUSIVELY, “Kendall and D’Angelo have hung out with friends, and there definitely seems to be a serious flirtation there. Sparks fly whenever they are in the same room.”
There’s definitely one big obstacle standing in the way of a new romance – they both have demanding careers with grueling schedules. “They are both so busy though — her with modeling and him with basketball they haven’t spent too much time together unfortunately” we previously told you. Kendall travels all over the globe with her wildly successful modeling career, and D’Angelo will be super busy playing for the Lakers for months to come. So maybe it’s best that they’re just friends…for now!
Right now, Kendall is basking in turning 20 on Nov. 3. The night prior, she had an A-list birthday bash at LA’s The Nice Guy, and her guest list was pretty impressive. Pals Drake and Justin Bieber showed up, as well as Nick Jonas, sparking rumors that the two might be on the verge of rekindling their brief summer flirtation. And of course her famous family was there to celebrate!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kendall and D’Angelo have time for a romance?
