If the tween in your life is curled up in a puddle of tears today, here's why: One Direction cutie Harry Styles enjoyed a dinner date with Kendall Jenner on Wednesday night in Los Angeles. The two were snapped driving away together after exiting popular and paparazzi-friendly restaurant Craig's from a back door.
Harry, 19, took the wheel of a Range Rover on the rainy night, while Kendall, 18, kept her head down and focused on her phone. Perhaps the reality starlet was looking up his Instagram, which she began following post-date.
Word is, they met on the set of "X Factor," although perhaps the curly-haired boy-bander, who's in town with 1D to promote their latest album, just really enjoyed the titillating photo Kendall shared earlier this week.
"They aren't 'dating.' They are just friends," a source downplays to E! News. "That was like the first real time they hung out. We will see what happens."
Much like Styles' brief hookup last year with Taylor Swift, Twitter reaction from fans has been fast and fruit loop-y.
"It there was one person who I didn't want Harry Styles to be with besides Taylor Swift, it would be Kendall," keened one. "Please tell me this isn't true."
Another sniffled, "I am going to cry," while one particularly heartbroken fan tweeted that the date was the "sadness equivalent to a little kid finding out Santa isn't real."
Since his January split from Taylor after a rumored blowout fight in the British Virgin Islands, Styles has been linked to model Cara Delevingne.
"I think you know when you find someone, I guess," he said last week when asked what he was looking for in a girlfriend. "I think, just someone who's nice."
