Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles sparked relationship rumors this past week when they were spotted sharing a meal in West Hollywood. But a few days after their eyebrow-raising meal the duo are speaking out separately, and hinting that things are platonic – for now.
“It’s very hard to have friends of the opposite sex,” Kylie chimed in a few moments later.
“You go out with one person, you’re automatically dating them,” Kendall, 18, added.
Styles, 19, was similarly vague a day earlier when Piers Morgan approached the One Direction band member at their 1D event in Los Angeles and directly asked whether they are dating.
“I mean, we went out for dinner, but no, I guess,” he told Morgan, per E! Online.
Morgan persisted, which prompted Styles to say “dunno” when asked if a romance could be in the works.
