Cody Simpson and Kylie Jenner aren’t dating, contrary to previous reports. Kris Jenner is going to be so upset!
They seemed like the teen couple that could potentially become the next Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, but sadly the Australian pop sensation and the reality show starlet are not an item.
Cody and Kylie met at the Breaking Dawn premiere in L.A., and it appeared that they were on a date together last month when they were spotted at The Grove. However, Cody has shot down rumors that he’s dating Kim Kardashian’s little sister.
According to The Daily Telegraph, here’s what Cody Simpson had to say about Kylie Jenner: “We’re just friends. It’s crazy because whenever I’m out in public and I’m seen with a girl, people automatically assume that we’re dating, especially if it’s someone such as Kylie. But we’re just good friends and we just went and hung out.”
Perhaps Kylie was just helping the Aussie that’s been dubbed the next Justin Bieber get acclimated to life in La La Land – after all, he’ll probably be spending a lot of time in L.A. if he wants to further his career. And maybe hanging out with Kylie Jenner was actually nothing more than a publicity stunt.
Think about it – Kylie is the younger sister of Kim Kardashian, who is almost as big as the Biebs when it comes to internet searches. Cody Simpson had to know that being photographed with her would get his name splashed all over the tabloids.
Maybe his manager Scooter Braun even arranged the photo op. After all, Scooter manages both Cody and the Biebs now, and he’s seen how much attention Justin’s relationship with Selena Gomez has helped him get (even though he really didn’t need it). This arrangement also benefits Kris Jenner – she’s going to want Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner to become tabloid darlings so they can take over TV when the world finally gets tired of their older sisters.
So what do you think – was Cody really just having fun hanging out with a new friend, or was his photo with Kylie a carefully-orchestrated plan meant to help him win a few more American fans? And will Kris Jenner be upset that her daughter didn’t snag the next Justin Bieber?
