“They’re the real deal,” the insider says, noting that Blake flew from L.A. to NYC to see the catwalker strut her stuff at Fashion Week. “It’s more than casual hookups.” While the pair have known each other for some time, Blake’s July breakup with fiancée Brynn Cameron — who’s also the mother of his two children — paved the way for his friendship with Kendall to blossom into something more.
“As soon as things turned romantic, it heated up quickly,” the insider explains. “They’re very into each other.” Their public outings are quite a turn for Kendall, 21, who another source notes “Has always been the most private one in her family” and whose dating history has been spotty at best. (She was linked to Harry Styles between 2013 and 2016 and most recently to rapper A$AP Rocky.) That said, don’t expect to see the model cheering on her man when the basketball season begins in October, as the source says he’s asked Kendall to refrain from sitting court side! “Blake doesn’t want her to turn into a distraction,” the insider says. “He’s invited her to sit in one of the players’ family suites instead of on the floor.”
