The Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles relationship of the 2010s was a flash in the pan, but in the years afterwards, the two have remained close friends or perhaps continued to be secret lovers.
Jenner served as the singer’s frequent inspiration and one of her earliest committed relationships, while Styles was the supermodel’s lovely musical lover throughout her late adolescent years. Around the end of 2013, the two started dating; however, a few years later, they decided to peacefully break their relationship.
The model and singer had a long-standing love history, which included excursions on Ellen DeGeneres’ yacht and New Year’s ski getaways, even though they never publicly acknowledged their relationship. Even when Styles took over for James Corden as host of The Late Late Show in December 2019, Jenner and the former member of One Direction shared a memorable “lunch.” While playing Corden’s “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts” game, the two appeared as though they were longtime friends.
Now that Styles and Jenner have reconciled and apparently leant on one another after their separate breakups with companions Olivia Wilde and Devin Booker, it is clear that their friendship is still strong (and may even return to being something more).
Check out the supermodel and singer’s youthful romance below, and stay tuned for updates on any prospective reconciliation.
