A$AP Rocky is going old school in his courtship of Kendall Jenner. HollywoodLife.com has learned EXCLUSIVELY that A$AP went to Caitlyn Jenner to ask her permission to date Kendall and her reaction was priceless. Read on to find out what Caitlyn said to A$AP’s request.
“Kendall [Jenner] brings out the gentlemen in Rakim,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, referring to A$AP Rocky by his legal name. “He goes the extra mile to impress her and exudes chivalry isn’t dead by asking Caitlyn [Jenner] for her permission to date Kendall.” Talk about trying to impress the parents! A$AP must have been adorably nervous.
“Rakim and Cait had a conversation where Rakim introduced himself and told Cait a rundown of his life story, and his intentions with Kendall. Cait was very impressed and gave him the thumbs up to see her daughter. Kendall had no idea Rakim did that until Caitlyn told her and was gushing to Kendall about how appropriate and respectful it was. Cait told Kendall Rakim reminded her of actor Sidney Poitier. Kendall asked ‘Who’s that?’ Cait told her he’s one of the most refined men that’s ever lived.”
For those not in the know, that is SERIOUSLY high praise, as Sidney, 89, is an extremely suave man who was the first Bahamian AND first African-American to win an Academy Award for Best Actor in 1964. So, it’s safe to say Cait, 66, is very cool with A$AP, 27, dating Kendall. And so are we!
A$AP has shown nothing but respect for the 20-year-old throughout their relationship, especially when he defended her against the rude comments his stepmother recently made about her and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. And, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported, A$AP has even told Kendall those three magic words. We can tell these two are totally headed in the right direction!
