Another Harry Styles stan. Kim KardashianOpenly gushed over Kendall Jenner’s former flame after seeing the “Little Freak” singer’s latest movie.
“I watched Don’t Worry DarlingThis weekend. I REALLY liked it,” the Kardashians star, 41, shared via her Instagram Story on Monday, September 19. “Harry was so good in it and I am now obsessed with @florencepugh. She’s an amazing actress and she’s so pretty too.”
The Skims founder’s commentary isn’t just the latest headline about the highly-anticipated movie — which has been steeped in controversy and off-screen drama for months — but it’s also a testament to the Kardashian-Jenner family’s relationship with Styles, 28. Jenner, 27, was first linked to the former One Direction member in late 2013. But romance rumors erupted two years later.
After the A-list pals were photographed getting cozy on a yacht in St. Bart’s over New Year’s weekend in late 2015, questions arose about their exact relationship status. Even Jenner’s sister Khloé KardashianWas confused.
“Do I think they’re dating? Yes,” the Good American cofounder, 38, told Entertainment TonightJanuary 2016. “I don’t know if they’re, like, boyfriend-girlfriend. Nowadays I don’t know. People are crazy with stuff. So, I don’t know their title.”
Still, Khloé insisted, “I mean, they were in St. Bart’s together hanging out, so to me that’s dating.”
Styles and Jenner were spotted together later that year. However, a source denied that the former flames were anything other than close friends. “They’re friends. They didn’t stop being friends,” the insider exclusively told Us WeeklySeptember 2016.
The pair’s friendship was showcased during a December 2019 episode ofThe Late Late Show James Corden, which Styles guest-hosted in Corden’s absence. Jenner and the “Carolina” crooner appeared to reference their past fling when she asked him during a game of “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts” whether any of the songs on his album Fine Linewere about her. Instead of answering, Grammy winner chose to eat some cod sperm.
“Harry and Kendall are great friends and always have been,” a source exclusively told Us of the exes after the episode aired. “They don’t get to spend a lot of time together, but when they do, they always have a blast. It’s an easy, super chill friendship.”
