PartyNextDoor has been trying to get the fun started with Kylie Jenner since early spring. A Jenner source tells the new issue of Us Weekly that the 22-year-old Canadian rapper (real name: Jahron Anthony Brathwaite) “actually began courting Kylie two months ago.”
Initially, the pair were platonic because the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 18, was still dating on-off boyfriend Tyga. But after she split with the rapper, 26, in early May, she quickly moved on with PND.
“They were friends,” the Jenner insider says of the couple, who hung out together May 13, then took in Russell Simmons’ All Def Comedy Live show in Hollywood May 18, “but now they’re definitely together.”
A PND pal says the “Come and See Me” singer is a great choice for the teen: “He’s a good guy and very chill.” Plus, he doesn’t carry the baggage of her last love. Tyga — who’s been hanging out with lingerie model Demi Rose Mawby, 21 — has son King Cairo with Jenner’s future sister-in-law Blac Chyna, 28.
Explains another Jenner source, “Kylie was really over being the joke of this whole Blac Chyna-Tyga situation.”
