“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kylie Jenner has moved on with a new man since her split from “Rack City” rapper Tyga. The teen is reportedly dating R&B singer PartyNextDoor.
So how did they meet? Jenner, 18, met PND in 2014 when she starred in his “Recognize” music video. Now that she is single, their friendship has reportedly turned romantic. “Kylie and PartyNextDoor are definitely dating,” Us Weekly confirmed Thursday. They were spotted at the TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood on Wednesday.
Even though Us Weekly claimed the stars have known each other for years, Hollywood Life wrote rapper Drake, 29, helped them connect. “The minute he heard Kylie and Tyga split, he told his boy he needed to connect with Kylie — and voila,” an insider told Hollywood Life in an exclusive report. “It’s very hard to meet good people in this backstabbing industry, so when Drake sees good peeps, he does his best to bring them together.”
PND, whose real name is Jahron Anthony Brathwaite, is closer in age to Jenner than Tyga. While there was an eight-year age gap with Tyga and Jenner, PND is four years older than the makeup maven. “The relationship started quite suddenly, but it feels right,” the Sun reported. “They are mad about each other.”
Even though Tyga told TMZ he still loves Jenner, the two aren’t on good terms right now. “Kylie and Tyga are not speaking right now,” a source told Us Weekly. Jenner briefly talked about her split during a rare Snapchat confession. She sought refuge at the home of her mom, Kris Jenner, and dished about her breakup to her thousands of followers.
