Nick Jonas might be fresh off his breakup from former Miss Universe, Olivia Culpo, but he sure can rebound like a pro….with a member of the Kardashian/Jenner family.
Looks like he and Kendall Jenner have begun dating, thanks to model Gigi Hadid’s matchmaking skills. FYI Gigi is a close friend of Kendall AND just so happens to be dating Nick’s brother Joe Jonas.
“Gigi wants Kendall around all the time,” says a source. “She thinks it would be fun for all of them to hang out.”
Plus, the duo, dubbed G.I. Joe by their friend Cara Delevingne, knew it wouldn’t be difficult to coordinate those group dates. “They are all going to end up hanging out regardless, so it seems like a simple situation, which could be a lot of fun,” the source adds.
Their scheming paid off. After being recently reintroduced, Jenner and Nick, are getting to know each other better over text, but “they had a flirty chemistry from the start,” said a source close to Nick.
The timing is right for Nick, who split from longtime girlfriend of nearly two years, former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, back in June. “Nick was single and looking to date and there was an obvious attraction. He absolutely thinks she’s hot,” says the source.
But don’t expect public displays of affection from the two just yet. For now, Nick and Jenner are taking it slow and keeping their relationship private. Another insider claims, “When they’re ready and it turns official, we’ll start seeing photos.”
