The half-sister of Kim Kardashian was spotted in a car with the One Direction singer last week after enjoying a meal together in Los Angeles. Rumours about the status of their relationship have been circulating, with insiders insisting the 18-year-old brunette is smitten with Harry.
"Kendall and her sister Kylie are massive 1D fans, so managed to get tickets to the X Factor recording where they were performing, and were there to meet the boys backstage. Kendall and Harry were flirting non-stop and it was there that they made plans to meet for dinner," a source told British magazine Grazia. "They are really into each other."
Kendall's mother Kris Jenner is believed to be encouraging the blossoming romance. The 'momager' apparently believes a relationship with the heartthrob would be a huge boost to Kendall's budding modelling career. It seems Kris is focusing on launching Kendall as the next big star in the family, since Kim Kardashian has reduced her work schedule after giving birth to daughter North in June.
"With Kim now very much tied up with Kanye West, Kris is looking to Kendall to take her place as the next heir to the Kardashian throne," the insider said.
Speaking at the American Music Awards, she revealed her frustration at being linked to every guy she is seen with.
"We're friends. He's cool, yeah, he's cool," she said, according to People.com. "You go out with one person, you're automatically dating them."
Harry has even been seen house-hunting in Hollywood, sparking rumours the pair may be serious about giving the relationship a chance.
