Kendall Jenner is not dating Diplo nor did she recently get "flirty" with him, despite tabloid reports. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct these claims. A rep for the model tells us she's not romantically involved with the DJ at all.
According to NW, Jenner and Diplo were spotted getting "super-flirty" at Coachella last month. A so-called "source" tells the magazine there "was lots of touching" going on between the two, including the DJ "stroking her arm." The outlet's questionable insider adds, "They both appeared to be comfortable and familiar in each other's company and hanging off everything the other person said." "Everyone wondered whether there could be something more going on between them," continues the unnamed eyewitness.
The whole story is based on supposed details from an anonymous and untraceable "source." Curiously, the tabloid doesn't mention that its "source" was actually The Sun, which first falsely alleged a little more than a week ago that Jenner and Diplo were getting cozy at Coachella. Not surprisingly, the Daily Mail picked up that report as well. And yet, with all the articles linking Diplo to Jenner, there was not one single picture of them together at Coachella. There were, however, numerous photos of them separately at the music festival.
If the two had actually gotten touchy-feely in public for an extended period of time, one would think someone at the crowded event would have snapped a photo of them. Surely, after the various reports were published, someone would have come forward and shared an image of Jenner and Diplo together, either for free on social media or perhaps have sold it to one of the tabloids. But there are no pictures, and there is no relationship.
While the Daily Mail noted it couldn't reach a rep for Jenner, the model's spokesperson readily confirmed to Gossip Cop that she's 100 percent not dating Diplo. Also, the status of the model's relationship with Blake Griffin isn't entirely clear. The two were rumored to have split last month, but last week, Jenner and Griffin were spotted dining at Delilah restaurant in West Hollywood. Regardless of whether or not the model is still seeing the NBA star, it's not like she's been seen spending time with Diplo instead.
It's worth noting, NW has proven to know very little about the model's romantic life. Gossip Cop recently busted the tabloid for falsely claiming Jenner was "in love" with Scott Disick, a claim her camp described to us as "laughable." The unreliable outlet was wrong then about Jenner's personal life, and it's no more accurate now.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
