Kendall Jenner and One Direction's Harry Styles are finally addressing those steamy dating rumors.
Last week, Jenner, 18, and Styles, 19, created a frenzy when they were spotted leaving Craig’s Restaurant in Los Angeles after what appeared to have been a romantic late-night rendezvous.
However, last night on the American Music Awards’ red carpet, Kendall Jenner squashed any rumors of a budding romance. When asked by E!’s Giuliana Rancic whether or not she is dating the brit boy bander, Kendall Jenner responded that there is “No story, we’re friends. He’s cool.”
Well, at least Jenner knows that she has her little sister’s support if she ever decides to upgrade the One Directioner out of the “friend zone”. Last night, Kylie Jenner accompanied her sister to the AMA’s and she had nothing but flattering words for Styles and his bandmates. “I haven’t met them all,” she told E!. “But the few I’ve met are amazing. They’re really nice guys.”
Romance rumors are nothing new for reality star Kendall Jenner. Just last month, she was linked to 21-year-old rapper Young Jinsu. Jenner quickly set that record straight via Twitter by writing “Enough with the rumors! I’m single people.”
Styles is no stranger to juicy hook-up gossip himself. Earlier this year, he made headlines when his high-profile relationship with country superstar Taylor Swift ended. Allegedly, Styles was the particular ex that inspired Swift’s mega-hit “I Knew You We're Trouble.”
So what did Styles have to say about the Kendall Jenner rumor? At a recent event, Piers Morgan grilled Styles on the status of his and Jenner’s relationship. When Morgan directly asked whether the two were dating Styles responded “I mean, we went out for dinner, but no, I guess.” Well, that sounds convincing! We’ll definitely be keeping a close eye on these two!
