Vroom vroom?! After spending a lavish, fun-filled weekend in Cannes and Monaco together, Kendall Jenner and Lewis Hamilton have developed crushes on each other, multiple sources tell Us Weekly. Bruce Jenner’s daughter and Nicole Scherzinger’s ex-boyfriend, who have known each other for awhile, got flirtatious after hanging out at the star-studded amfAR 22nd Cinema Against AIDS Gala event on May 21.
According to one source, Hamilton, a British Formula One racing driver, told friends after the Cannes Film Festival fete that he’d love to take her out on a “proper date," gushing how she’s “really cute and smart.” “He’s single and ready to date seriously again,” the insider tells Us of the pro, who split from girlfriend of seven years Scherzinger this past February.
Jenner, along with pals Gigi and Bella Hadid and Hailey Baldwin, then cheered on Hamilton during the Monaco F1 Grand Prix in Monte Carlo on Saturday, May 23. The model, 19, even donned the 30-year-old racing pro’s gold chain and gave Hamilton a discreet shout-out on Instagram, captioning a photo of herself watching the race: “Hey driver…”
According to another source, Hamilton invited Jenner and her friends to stay on his yacht, flirting during a jet ski excursion. “Kendall definitely has a major flirtation going on with Lewis and seems into him,” the source told Us of their yacht fun. “They were very flirty all day long. Lewis was spraying water on Kendall with the back of his jet ski and she was loving the attention. They were both laughing and having a great time.”
The potential pair also took the opportunity to get close to each other. “They were rubbing shoulders and sitting close together all day,” the insider added.
A third source close to the duo confirms the crush, but adds it might just be a fling, explaining neither of them are “looking for a relationship” but “it could develop into something more.”
Jenner was previously linked to One Directioner Harry Styles.
