Kylie Jenner: I Don't Have a Boyfriend, Jaden Smith's Just My "Best Guy Friend"
Kylie Jenner has been in the public eye since age 9, so having a normal prom experience is probably a struggle. But in the new Seventeen Prom cover story (on newsstands Dec. 25), the 16-year-old opens up about her dreams for the perfect prom from the date to the dress. And though she has been spending lots of quality time Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's son, Jaden, since March, the cover girl says she's currently single.
"I don’t have a boyfriend, but I do really want that boyfriend prom experience," she said in the magazine. "I would want to go with someone who’s not afraid, or doesn’t think that he’s too cool, to show up at my house with a rose corsage. It would be nice for the guy to come over and be respectful and nice while my mom takes prom pics. But if I couldn’t find a boyfriend, I would want to go with one of my best guy friends, like Jaden [Smith]. I know I’d have fun with him – he makes me laugh and he is a great dancer."
Jenner and actor-singer Smith, 15, are often spotted out together with Smith's younger sister Willow and former Hannah Montana star Moises Arias. On Nov. 19 Jaden was photographed clasping a gold necklace on the reality star's neck in West Hollywood, and on Nov. 24, the duo sat and posed together at the American Music Awards where they hugged and held hands for most of the night.

Though she now claims to be single, the former couple is clearly still close if she's willing to invite him to be her prom date.
And though she's a part-time model with plenty of fashion resources, Jenner doesn't think you have to break the bank to have a great prom look.
“I borrow things from my sisters’ closets all of the time," she revealed. "For prom, I’d probably raid Khloe’s for shoes (she has the best shoes!), and Kim’s for dresses and handbags because I really admire her style a lot.”
Jenner is, in fact, notorious for "borrowing" her sisters' ensembles. On last season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, a frustrated and pregnant Kim Kardashian, 33, stole her clothes back from Kylie's closet after the teen stopped featuring Kim on her tumblr page.
“If I’m not good enough for her tumblr, that she’s not good enough for my clothes!” Kim declared.
