Kendall Jenner reportedly has no interest in being in a relationship, at least for the time being. A source claiming to be close to the 18-year-old recently gave an exclusive statement to the Irish Independent.
The source says that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star does not wish to be in a relationship of any kind at the current moment, let alone the high-profile ones she has recently been linked to. For the past few weeks, Jenner has been linked to Canadian pop star Justin Bieber, with rumors flying around the internet that the two were secretly dating after they were spotted together at a Parisian restaurant during Fashion Week. Just last week, the media began to speculate that she was also potentially interested in R&B star Chris Brown, as well as rapper French Montana. Her association with the latter man raised more than a few eyebrows, not just because of the substantial age difference but also because of the fact he is the recent ex-boyfriend of her half-sister, Khloe Kardashian. She has also been spotted driving around the expensive Jeep Montana gave Kardashian while the two were still together, which is said to have been re-gifted to her following the split. The aforementioned source says that all of these rumors and speculations are nothing more than tabloid gossip, and that Jenner is nothing more than good friends with any of them. She reportedly has no interest in being one half of a celebrity power couple, as she is putting all her focus and energy into launching her own career into full blast. She does not believe she needs the support or press coverage of a high-profile relationship, as she can make a name for herself on her own.
Jenner’s relationship status, whether it is on or off, has certainly been making headlines in the past few weeks. Just one day ago, family friend Jonathan Cheban (best known for being half-sister Kim’s bestie) gave a public statement in her defense regarding the highly publicized feud with Selena Gomez, which was sparked over the aforementioned speculation that Jenner and Gomez’s on-again-off-again boyfriend Bieber were romantically involved. Cheban was adamant that the California native and Bieber are nothing more than friends, and that she had absolutely nothing to do with his most recent split from Gomez, which occurred at the end of September. He also shot down rumors that she and Gomez fell out due to intimate texts and photographs being sent from Jenner and her sister Kylie’s phone to Bieber’s. Cheban also says he has high hopes for yet another Bieber-Gomez reunion, even going as far as to predict the two will eventually end up getting married. He believes the two are right for each other, and that no matter how much they fight and break up they will always end up at each other’s sides once more.
It remains to be seen whether or not Kendall Jenner truly has no interest in pursuing a relationship with, or being romantically linked, to a high-profile celebrity. For the time being, however, she is said to be focusing on herself and the success of her own career.
