Caitlyn Jenner, A$AP Rocky Never Talked Dating Kendall Jenner, Despite Report
Caitlyn Jenner and A$AP Rocky did not have a talk about dating Kendall Jenner, despite a report falsely claiming the rapper “asked for permission” to date the model. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the made-up story.
The fabrication comes from HollywoodLife, which claimed in an “exclusive” headline, “A$AP Rocky Asked Caitlyn Jenner’s Permission To Date Kendall Jenner.” Referring to the music star by his birth name, a so-called “source” was quoted as saying, “Kendall brings out the gentlemen in Rakim. He goes the extra mile to impress her and exudes chivalry isn’t dead by asking Caitlyn for her permission to date Kendall.”
“Rakim and Cait had a conversation where Rakim introduced himself and told Cait a rundown of his life story, and his intentions with Kendall. Cait was very impressed and gave him the thumbs up to see her daughter,” alleged the supposed snitch. The webloid’s (non-existent or misinformed) tipster went on, “Kendall had no idea Rakim did that until Caitlyn told her and was gushing to Kendall about how appropriate and respectful it was. Cait told Kendall Rakim reminded her of actor Sidney Poitier. Kendall asked ‘Who’s that?’ Cait told her he’s one of the most refined men that’s ever lived.”
None of this actually happened. It was all seemingly manufactured by HollywoodLies so the site could appear to have insight on the Jenners. It’s a tactic done not only to trick readers, but also dupe Google into thinking it has original content that should be rewarded with search traffic.
But the outlet doesn’t deserve any rewards for being inaccurate. Just like in January when HollywoodLife falsely claimed Caitlyn gave her “approval” of Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s relationship, the site is trying to pass off the same manipulation now with Kendall and A$AP Rocky. But a rep for Caitlyn exclusively tells Gossip Cop the new story is “not true,” just like the last.
