Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles are “dating,” according to the model’s older half-sister Khloe Kardashian.
The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star spilled the tea on her younger sister’s romantic life -- well, her take on it anyway -- after photos surfaced of Jenner and the One Direction heartthrob vacationing together in St. Bart’s over the holidays ... and kissing!
“They were hanging out together. Do I think they’re dating? Yes. I don’t know if they’re like boyfriend-girlfriend. Nowadays, I don’t know, people are weird with stuff. So I don’t know their ‘title,’” Kardashian told Entertainment Tonight. "But I mean, they were in St. Bart’s together hanging out, so to me that’s dating. I would call that dating.”
Jenner, 20, and the British singer, 21, celebrated New Year’s Eve in the Caribbean last week and were photographed canoodling on a yacht and hanging out with TV host Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia DeRossi. They’ve stayed mum on their relationship status, but the pair were previously linked in 2014 after they vacationed together in Mammoth, according to Us Weekly and People.
The “Kocktails With Khloe” host further detailed how she’s not sure how serious the young lovers are.
“I don’t know if they’ve had that talk yet,” the 31-year-old said. "Do people still have the talk? You need the talk ... I don’t believe in assuming what you are. That’s ridiculous.”
Insiders told People that Styles, who is known for having dated singer Taylor Swift, thinks the brunet Victoria’s Secret model “is hot” and “was sort of just waiting for a chance to spend more time with her again.” The insider added that they’ll stay in touch and plan to meet up again soon.
Allow us to shed some light on the very “Brady Bunch” Kardashian family tree: The Kardashians — Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian and Rob Kardashian — are children to former O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner (nee Houghton). She divorced Kardashian and married Caitlyn Jenner, known at the time as Olympian Bruce Jenner. Jenner had sons Brandon Jenner and Brody Jenner from a previous marriage to Linda Thompson. (She also has another son and daughter from her first marriage to Chrystie Crownover.) The Jenners later had two daughters, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, who are also featured on the family’s reality TV series. And then there are the love interests and babies. Click though for a better idea of who’s who and why they’re famous.(E!)
Probably the most famous Kardashian, Kim Kardashian is the second eldest of the Kardashian siblings, half siblings and step-siblings. In birth order, they go Kourtney (1979), Kim (1980), Khloe (1984), Brody Jenner (1983), Rob (1987), Kendall Jenner (1995) and Kylie Jenner (1997). Kim Kardashian made a name for herself as a friend and stylist to Paris Hilton, but she shot to fame after a sex tape of her and R&B singer Ray J was leaked. She has somehow parlayed that infamous tape into an unrelated reality-TV empire with her family, rebuilding her reputation as that of a fashionista and businesswoman. However, the burnished rep was somewhat tarnished again after news got out that she was divorcing NBA player Kris Humphries after a short-lived 72-day marriage. Their wedding included quite a bit of fanfare, and the divorce proceedings lasted much longer than her wedded bliss. As the saga played out, she and her new boyfriend, rapper Kanye West, announced they were expecting a baby together. They welcomed their baby girl on June 15, 2013.(Timothy White / E!)

Khloe Kardashian is the tallest and most outgoing of the sisters. She married NBA star Lamar Odom after a monthlong courtship in 2009. She has served as a host of “The X Factor” and chronicled her infertility issues on her “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” spinoff series, “Khloe & Lamar.” In 2013, the couple’s rocky relationship made headlines after news surfaced questioning Odom’s fidelity and reports alleged that he had been struggling with a drug problem. Kardashian filed for divorce Dec. 13.(Anders Overgaard / E!)
Rob Kardashian attended USC and moved in with sister Khloe and her husband, Lamar Odom. He has appeared on “Dancing With the Stars” and started up his own line of socks. After the public crumbling of the Kardashian-Odom marriage, Rob Kardashian retreated from public life and made fewer appearances on the family’s reality series.(Anders Overgaard / E!)

Kendall Jenner is the quiet, once-shy daughter of Caitlyn Jenner and Kardashian “momager” Kris Jenner. While appearing on her family’s reality series since age 11, she has pursued a modeling career, signing with prominent agency Wilhelmina in 2010. She’s been trying to carve out a career path independent of her famous half sisters, and worked on a clothing line for PacSun with younger sister Kylie Jenner.(Anders Overgaard / E!)
Kylie Jenner, daughter of Caitlyn and Kris Jenner, is the youngest of the siblings. Like her sisters, she has pursued a modeling career. She has also worked on a fashion line with sister Kendall and has become a social media powerhouse in her own right.(Anders Overgaard / E!)
