Any chance of a "Hendall" reunion is far from happening. With Harry Styles dating Paige Reifler, Kendall too has moved on with another cutie. Thanks to momager Kris Jenner, the 18-year old model is said to be officially dating NBA Dallas Mavericks Chandler Parsons.

Chandler Parsons and Kendall Jenner first sparked dating rumours late last week when the pair were spotted at the STK resto in Los Angeles. Now, it looks like things are going serious between the model and the basketball player.
Even mom, Kris Jenner, is giving the relationship a two thumbs up. Ironically, it was Kris Jenner who had set up Chandler to date her 18-year old daughter. According to reports by Daily Mail, Kris Jenner was blown away by Chandler's good looks and his prospective future in the basketball scene thus prompting her to set the latter up with her daughter.
"Mama Kris met Chandler a few weeks ago and was blown away by not only his good looks, but his promising b-ball future," states the source.
Additional reports now claim that thanks to Kendall and Chandler's "intense chemistry," the basketball player recently backed out of a reality television show. Reports state that Chandler was supposed to star in a series similar to "The Bachelor" but now that he's got Kendall Jenner, the 25-year old had skipped out of the deal.
While momager Kris Jenner is pleased with her matchmaking skills, Kendall's dad Bruce Jenner isn't entirely a fan of athletes dating his daughters. After Reggie Bush, Kris Humpries and Lamar Odom, all three who had dated his daughters, Bruce Jenner worries that Kendall would be on the same path to heartbreak with Chandler Parsons.
Kendall Jenner has yet to confirm her relationship status with her modelling career going full steam ahead. For one, Chandler isn't the first celebrity to be linked to the model. Late last week, Justin Bieber and Ashton Irwin of 5SOS were reportedly "dating" the "Keeping Up with the Kardashian" star.
