Now, the 19-year-old model is addressing the rumors for the first time, opening up about her relationship with the “Baby” crooner.
“He’s a longtime friend of the family,” Jenner laughs at the fabricated reports during an interview with Nightline. “Everybody loves to assume things, but no.”
So is she currently seeing anyone else then?
“I’m not,” she smiles before revealing, “I’m focusing on my career. If it comes it comes.”
And speaking of her career, Kendall has been making huge strides–most recently becoming the newest face of Estee Lauder and being dubbed “model of the moment” by Vogue magazine.
Kendall–who recently dropped her famous last name–also chatted a little bit about how her career took off with no help from her family. “I’m not trying to use a family name or anything. In reality I worked pretty hard for this. It wasn’t like I just got it magically and it just happened.”
As for her reality television show and her famous family, she is trying to separate the two worlds and even asked that Kim Kardashian not attend some of her big shows.
“It was more of a mutual understanding,” the model said saying she never “banned” Kim from coming. “I think that if my sister was sitting front row and my sister is who she is–I know this sounds kind of weird but–it would have almost taken the attention away from what I’m trying to do on my own.”
