Kylie Jenner has long been linked to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith’s 16-year-old son, actor Jaden Smith, but according to new claims, the young reality TV star may be moving on to another celebrity family: the Richies.
According to a report from the July 28 issue of Life & Style magazine, Jenner, 16, was recently spotted getting cozy with Miles Richie, the 20-year-son of “Hello" singer Lionel Richie and brother of former “The Simple Life” reality TV star Nicole Richie, 32.
“She and Miles sat at a corner table with a crew of friends,” an eyewitness to the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star’s July Fourth outing to Mastro’s Ocean Club in Los Angeles told the magazine.
Jenner has been linked to Jaden since 2013, but sources claim the teenage darling appeared to be more than just friends with Lionel Richie’s offspring.
“Kylie sat close to Miles and played with his shirt. They definitely have chemistry!” said one eyewitness, while another partygoer added that Jenner was seen trying to keep her affections secret from prying eyes. “She was rubbing his back, but she was trying to be discreet about it,” said a source.
So is Miles Richie Jenner’s official new boyfriend? While she has yet to address the question, Richie hasn’t been shy about sharing his feelings for Jenner over social media in recent weeks. After sharing multiple images of her on Instagram, Richie deemed Jenner his #WCW (Women Crush Wednesday) in June. “My #WCW all day every day @KylieJenner,” Richie posted.
The duo first sparked relationship rumors in May after Jenner was allegedly videotaped illegally tattooing her initials onto Richie’s hand in Hollywood.
Despite Jaden Smith, the star of Harald Zwart’s 2010 “The Karate Kid” remake, accompanying Jenner at multiple high-profile events, most recently Kim Kardashian’s nuptials in Florence, Italy in May, the duo have never spoken in detail about their supposed romance.
“I don’t want everyone to know [everything],” Jenner said of her relationship during an appearance on “Chelsea Lately” in January.
