Jada Pinkett, Kris Jenner Make “Deal” For Jaden Smith to Date Kendall Jenner?!

Truth rating: 0

Jada Pinkett has arranged for her and Will Smiths 14-year-old son Jaden “to date a reality star!!!!” blares a headline from MediaTakeOut.

The site claims Pinkett “brokered a deal” with momager Kris Jenner to have Jaden “date Kris’ daughter Kendall Jenner.”

A supposed “TOP SNITCH at a weekly newspaper” tells the blog, “Kris has been trying for months to get Kendall more exposure in the mags.”

The purported “insider” reveals, “Kris was pitching us all kinds of ideas, she threw around names of celeb children that [Kendall] could date. We all thought that Jaden [Smith] was the most interesting.”

MediaFakeOut adds, “And then… a few days later… it’s been CONFIRMED that 16 year old Kendall is dating 14 year old Jaden.”


A couple of things here.

For starters, Kendall is 17.

Also, newspapers and magazines are not consulting firms that meet with managers to get celebrities exposure, nor do they tend to arrange relationships among stars.

We’re not sure where MTO got this fantastical (but amusing!) idea.

Oh, and most importantly, Kendall and Jaden are NOT dating.

Kendall, who was photographed holding hands with Jaden while ice-skating at her 17th birthday party, recently squashed the romance rumors, saying, “He is like my little brother.”

And if that’s not enough, a source close to Pinkett tells Gossip Cop that MediaTakeOut’s arranged dating story is “not true.”
