Kris Jenner wanted Kendall to date Lewis Hamilton
A while back, TV star Kris Jenner stated she would like her daughter Kendall to date the Mercedes driver.
According to Mirror, the American TV personality and the seven-time world champion became pals after hanging out in common social circles.
Kris had taken a liking to Brit’s personality and is keen on wanting her daughter Kendall to date him.
“She really wants Kendall to date him. Lewis and Kris have become friendly in recent months and she thinks he’s perfect for her daughter,” the source further revealed.
The insider mentioned that since Hamilton is a well-known athlete, it would also benefit Kendall Jenner. “She really enjoyed being in Monaco with Lewis, who personally invited her. And of course, any relationship would be a profile boost for her.”
Kendall and Lewis were first spotted together at the Monaco Grand Prix back in 2015. The world champion was even invited to a special dinner hosted by Kendall’s older sister Kim Kardashian in Cannes that year.
Furthermore, Kendall was seen in the Mercedes garage cheering on Hamilton in a couple of races. But contrary to what Kris had planned, the two stars did not really end up together. Now, Kendall is in a relationship with the NBA star Devin Booker while Lewis Hamilton is reportedly still single.
