Kendall Jenner is rumoured to be dating 5SOS singer/drummer Ashton Irwin and a report has cited two possible reasons why she could have chosen to date him especially since he is touring with her ex-bf Harry Styles.
According to Inquisitr there may be certain reasons why the 18-year old has chosen to "date" the Aussie 5SOS member.
One is her rumoured desire to get back with Harry Styles. A source told Daily Star that Kendall would do anything "to get her claws into him again." The site suggested Kendall's plan of getting Harry back involves her purchasing several backstage VIP passes for the "One Direction" shows, which includes two nights at the Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
Inquisitr claimed Kendall could have bought the tickets because of Ashton Irwin since "5SOS" is touring with "One Direction" for their "Where We Are" world tour. But another possible reason according to the site is it would put Harry Styles in an uncomfortable position. The site suggested that if Kendal is indeed dating Ashton then it's so she could make Harry jealous.
Second reason according to Inquisitr, is Kendall's desire for attention. So she chose to "date" a member of an Aussie group who's reportedly deemed as a "threat" to "One Direction."
According to a previous report from Daily Star, 5SOS will be the next big thing after their album grabbed the no. 1 spot in the US. The site claimed Simon Cowell has even warned "One Direction" of a competition when he said, "It does mean 1D have to up their game a bit. We knew a lot of boy bands would follow but the competition is tough at the moment."
Daily Mail reported the Kendall Jenner-Ashton Irwin dating rumour started when the model was snapped on Monday night getting inside a taxi with the singer. A certain user named PLS JACK @ movewithnarryfrom, posted the photo on Twitter with the caption "Kendall and Ashton got into a cab together." Another caption according to Inquisitr, even took a jab at Kendall's hosting experience at the Billboard Awards when she nearly introduced 5SOS as "One Direction." The caption reads, "SHE MUST'VE MISTOOK HIM FOR HARRY SINCE SHE'S GOOD AT MIXING THINGS UP."
The site claimed Kendall Jenner was out having fun with the "5SOS" member in New York before they were photographed leaving together. A photo shared on Instagram suggested she spent the night with Ashton Irwin and his fellow band member Calum Hood. Her close friend Hailey Baldwin and other friends Nicole and Danielle Kahlani were also in the picture.
