Growing up in the public eye isn’t commonplace for many people, but for the Jenner sisters it was something they had little choice in. Kendall and Kylie’s private lives have been well documented since their pre-teen years when their family began filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians in 2007, and from then the sisters, now 21 and 19-years-old respectively, have encountered rife speculation about every aspect of their adult lives, especially when it comes to who they might be dating.
While her sisters may be more open to discussing their love lives – Kylie did not keep her on-and-off relationship with rapper Tyga a secret - there is one member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan who is determined to keep shtum: Kendall.
Supermodel du jour, Kendall, has been linked to countless A-listers over the years, most recently A$AP Rocky, but also Harry Styles, Nick Jonas, rapper Young Jinsu and NBA player Chandler Parsons, to name just a few. Basically, she is linked to anyone she is spotted with, but this fascination with her love life hasn’t made her want to clear up any rumours.
Speaking to Harpers Bazaar she explained that she has no interest discussing her dalliances in interviews. ‘I'm not marrying anyone. I'm not engaged,’ she said. ‘There's nothing long-term or serious like that in my life. If I'm not fully, fully in it with someone, why would I make it public to everyone else? If I don't even know what it is, why would I let the world know?’
She added by saying, ‘I think it's something sacred. It's something between two people, and nobody else's opinion needs to be involved in it. People want to start drama. If I had a boyfriend, people are going to say all this stuff that's probably going to cause us to break up.’
Her maturity for the matter seems to have served her well, as when asked if she is dating anyone at the moment she said, casually, ‘I'm doing my thing. I'm having fun. I'm being young.’
Jenner regards privacy to be powerful. 'I think people always want what they can't have. It's nice to have some mystery,' she explains. '[Fame is] literally the craziest thing. Me and my family will be getting shit like this for the rest of our lives.'
