Kendall Jenner’s mom, Kris Jenner, is reportedly playing matchmaker with her 18-year-old daughter! We told you that Zayn Malik and Kendall were flirting at Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday party and now it turns out Kris reportedly wants Kendall to date the ex-One Direction star!
Could Kendall Jenner, 19, and Zayn Malik, 22, be Hollywood’s next “it” couple? We told you that the stars were spotted getting cozy by HollywoodLife.com‘s eyewitnesses at Kylie Jenner‘s 18th birthday bash in LA but now a new report claims that Kris Jenner is pushing these two to date! Now that Kendall is single that definitely might work but didn’t she date his former boy bander bestie, Harry Styles?
Kris really wants to boost KUWTK ratings and our insider tells us that this means all of her kids are being told by the momager to amp up their story lines for next season. This means everyone needs to have a love life and Kris wants Kendall, despite her very busy schedule, to have a high profile relationship — cue Zayn! “Kris is really frustrated that Kendall doesn’t seem interested in finding a boyfriend. A Kendall romance storyline would be such a boom for ratings.” The insider adds that Kris thinks a Zayn-Kendall relationship would be major for the show.
But even though Zayn recently “liked” one of Kylie’s pics on Instagram and has been “crushing” on her for a while, according to our sources, he’s moved on to Kendall since Kylie is so devoted to Tyga. It turns out it was Kris, not Kylie who invited Zayn to her birthday party, according to UK’s The Sun. “Kendall is actually quite shy and was mortified at her mum being so obvious but eventually she relaxed and was talking to Zayn just the two of them,” an insider tells us. “Khloe and some friends joined them and clearly Zayn was feeling more confident so he put his arm around her.” But eventually things seemed to be going swimmingly and Kendall really loosened up: “She looked very surprised at first but she relaxed and put both her arms around his waist.” The insider also says that they exchanged numbers at the end of the night!
We told you that Zayn was being a total flirt at the party: “Zayn was a major flirt with Kendall at Kylie’s party. 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!’
Although Zayn was also being a little flirty with Kylie too, in front of Tyga: “Tyga doesn’t really get too jealous. 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.”
HollywoodLifers, do you think Kendall should date Zayn?
