Celebritease: Romance rumors rising

Although Kendall Jenner has been stirring up romance rumors in recent months, the model stepped out single and in-style at the MTV Movie Awards’s red carpet on Saturday, April 9. Jenner was seen sporting a corset-like halter dress and thigh-high lace heels that took a team to tie her in. Jenner’s besties, Cara Delevingne and Gigi Hadid, also appeared on the red carpet alone, but both looked sleek as they laughed with Jenner on their apparent girl’s night out.

The award show was filmed on Saturday, but did not premiere for fans until Sunday, April 10. “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” took home the top prize for movie of the year and Daisy Ridley accepted the breakthrough performance award for her role in the film. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Kevin Hart hosted the award show and gave fans a sneak peak of their upcoming film, “Central Intelligence.”

While the aforementioned models looked dreamy on the red carpet, Hadid and Jenner lit up the Internet recently with their respective romances. On Tuesday, April 5, Vogue magazine released photos from Hadid and boyfriend Zayn Malik’s glamorous photo shoot in Naples, Italy. The spread features the power couple doing yoga in bed and riding around on a moped — Hadid’s bangs somehow never looking out of place, despite the rest of her hair blowing in the wind. The couple has officially raised the bar for other fashionable and famous couples.

While Hadid and Malik published their love for the world to see, Jenner’s secrecy regarding her love life has attracted more eyes than ever. The model had been spotted on and off with Harry Styles since their New Year’s trip to St. Barts, and even her sister Khloe Kardashian confirmed that she considered them dating.

However, it was most recently confirmed by a source close to Jenner that she had been dating Los Angeles Lakers player Jordan Clarkson for months. Jenner had been spotted with Clarkson at The Nice Guy restaurant in Los Angeles on Wednesday, March 30, but according to a fan photo on Twitter, Jenner was back hanging out with Styles on Friday, April 8. While Jenner and Styles were only spotted casually shopping, the photos from St. Barts show a more romantic side to the two. Of course, they could just be good friends. After all, she is allowed to date whoever she chooses, whenever she chooses.

Following that same attitude, Jenner’s brother, Rob Kardashian, has announced the he and girlfriend Blac Chyna are engaged as of Monday, April 4. Stepping out with her best friend Amber Rose on Saturday, April 9, at The Pool After Dark in Atlantic City, N.J., Chyna took to the stage, where fans congratulated her on the engagement. Her representative reported that Chyna is more than excited about the wedding and can’t wait to change her last name.

Tyga, Chyna’s former partner and father of her son, is currently dating Kylie Kardashian and had nothing but kind words for the couple. He noted that his only concern is for his son’s happiness and that as long as this is a happy environment for his son, he is totally supportive of the engagement. Kanye West has yet to go on a Twitter rant about the situation, so I’m taking that as a good sign for the future Mr. and Mrs. Kardashian.
