Kendall Jenner and Lewis Hamilton have become the subject of dating rumors ever since the duo was spotted partying on a luxury yacht in Monaco together over the weekend after the Cannes Film Festival. After breaking up with pop star Nicole Scherzinger, the Formula One racing driver wants to get closer to the fashion model, Us Weekly wrote in an exclusive report Wednesday.
Even though neither Jenner nor Hamilton are “looking for a relationship, … it could turn into something more,” a source told Us Weekly. But a different source said the British racer wants to take the brunette beauty, 21, on a “proper date” and thinks she’s “really cute and smart.”
It’s not one-sided either. “Kendall definitely has a major flirtation going on with Lewis and seems into him,” a different insider told Us Weekly about their day spent on the yacht.
The duo also played with each during a Jet Ski excursion. “They were very flirty all day long. Lewis was spraying water on Kendall with the back of his jet ski and she was loving the attention. They were both laughing and having a great time.” The insider added: “They were rubbing shoulders and sitting close together all day.”
Jenner wasn’t the only one who accompanied Hamilton on the yacht. Friends Gigi and Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin also joined them.
There’s one important person who supposedly approves of the rumored couple: “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” matriarch Kris Jenner. “Lewis and Kris have become friendly in recent months. Kris is apparently eager for her daughter to date the 30-year-old world champion because he would be a 'good influence,' while his profile would also help boost Kendall’s career,” an insider told The Sun.
