Bad news for Nick Jonas and Kendall Jenner shippers. Despite reports of a steamy relationship, the “Levels” singer and the model are NOT dating.
Jonas, 22, broke the news to E! Online about his highly publicized love life. “We’re not dating,” he explained.
So, why have the two been photographed out together? The answer is quite simple – they’ve got mutual friends!
“Kendall is great and naturally with her being good friends with Gigi [Hadid], and with Joe [Jonas] and Gigi dating, there are times we’ll be in the same place and we all hang out,” Jonas explained.
Dating rumors sparked earlier this month when a source told Us Weekly that model Hadid, 20, set up Jenner, 19, with her boyfriend’s brother. The insider claimed that Jenner and Jonas had “flirty chemistry” and were texting each other. However, the source added the two were taking it slow and had no plans to make their relationship “official.”
Meanwhile, fans can’t forget that Nick Jonas is newly single. After two years of dating Miss USA 2012 Olivia Culpo, the two called it quits in June. Jonas and Culpo have kept their split amicable.
“I wish the best for her in the future and we had a great two years together,” the singer told E! Online shortly after the breakup. He added he was focusing his time on his new music.
