Heads turned when Caitlyn Jenner showed up to Elton John’s 2017 Oscars after-party with gorgeous model Andreja Pejic on her arm — and they were reportedly holding hands inside the bash, too. So, is this a hot new couple, or what?
Andreja Pejic,25, may be more than half Caitlyn Jenner’s age, but that hasn’t stopped the ladies from hanging out. Fans even began wondering if there was something more than just platonic to this relationship when they walked the red carpet together at Vanity Fair’s party after the Academy Awards on Feb. 27 and Elton John’s soiree beforehand.
Inside Elton’s party, things reportedly got even more intimate. “Caitlyn discreetly grabbed Andreja’s hand,” an insider told Us Weekly. “They talked to people as they walked over to the bar. Caitlyn put her hand on Andreja’s back as they walked.”
However, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY confirm that these ladies are nothing more than friends. In recent years, they’ve both become faces of the transgender community, so with Donald Trump’s recent bill limiting transgender students’ bathroom rights, it made sense for them to put on a united front at such a high-profile event.
The reality star and former Olympian actually met Andreja back in 2015, just months after the former went public with her transition. Both women attended Glamour’s Women of the Year awards that November, and they’ve stayed close friends ever since. Can’t a girl just walk the red carpet with her bestie without anyone asking questions?!
Caitlyn has been coy about dating since coming out, and has yet to publicly clarify whether or not she’s interested in women, men or both. She’s also previously been linked to Candis Cayne, who appeared on her short-lived reality show, I Am Cait.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Caitlyn and Andreja would make a cute couple? Or are they better as friends?
