Are you sad they aren’t a couple? Well, it all makes since for the “Levels” singer to clear the air of the dating speculation between he and Kendall Jenner, considering the fact he had just broken up with longtime girlfriend Olivia Culpo.
Alleged coupling of the singer and model began after Us Weekly reported that the two were linked up by Jenner’s friend Gigi Hadid, who is dating Jonas’ brotherJoe Jonas. [Nick] Jonas didn’t deny that he enjoys Jenner’s company, but did make sure to clarify their relationship is completely platonic.
“We’re not dating,” he told E! News. “Kendall is great and naturally with her being good friends with Gigi and with Joe and Gigi dating, there are times we’ll be in the same place and we all hang out.”
The 22-year-old singer, who broke up with Olivia Culpo in June after two years together, added that he is more concerned with his career than his relationship status for the time being. “I’m trying to take the time to walk out this next phase of my life and be single the right way,” he said. “I [also] like being able to work as hard as I want. I’m incredibly driven and with all the projects I have going on, they take up a lot of my time. I like to work hard and just be as focused on work as possible.”
He will be hitting the stage at this year’s MTV VMA Awards.
