Thus far, the closest confirmation that Kendall Jenner is really dating A$AP Rocky has been sources "close to the family," along with a dimly lit Kim Kardashian Snapchat from this Monday's Met Gala:
But another image released from the night shows just how affectionate the two really were inside, with Jenner cozy in his lap. Bella Hadid plays third wheel, crouching on the floor beside them:
They were also photographed hanging quite close on the Met Gala red carpet:
Jenner posted her own version of that inside moment on her Instagram. A$AP Rocky is cropped out:
The photos come paired with a new dating report from Entertainment Tonight. Another source close to the family reiterated these two really are boyfriend-girlfriend. "I don't think you will be seeing them make a public announcement anytime soon, but there is something going on there for sure," the source said. "It's been going on for a while. Kendall is happy."
Jenner, in Harper's Bazaar's May issue, made it clear she will only talk about her love life to the press when there's basically a ring on it. "I'm not marrying anyone," she said. "I'm not engaged. 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?"
"I think it's something sacred," she added. "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."
