Cheesier Web sites like HollywoodLife tried to squeeze some extra mileage out of Swift’s and Styles’ abortive romance last summer by claiming they were constantly texting and possibly getting back together.
That now seems highly unlikely.
Harry, 19, and Kendall, who just turned 18, seem like a more logical match-up and comes at a time when Kendall is trying to raise her public profile. She posted some hot semi-nude photos, her first (not her last) on Instigram earlier this week.
They both are a public relations dream team because Harry is trying to stay relevant and Kendall is trying to become relevant. A sexy romance would likely generate tons of tabloid gossip.
Whether this is lasting is a big question. Harry is only in the United States to promote his album. Kendall is firmly rooted in Los Angeles with the Kardashian family. She is Kim Kardashian’s half sister.
Harry has had high-profile relationships with Swift, and UK model Cara Delevingne, who is bisexual, and two scandalous affairs with women almost twice his age, one of whom was married.
In any event, the two were spotted on a dinner date in West Hollywood at Craig’s, a well-known celebrity hangout teaming with paparazzi. They could hardly have been missed.
The two reportedly met at the studio where the X Factor USA is taped. One Direction was recording a performance for tonight’s show, according to reports.
One Direction, made up of Harry, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne, are promoting their new album Midnight Memories.
