Kendall Jen­ner’s Lonely Life:


Star (USA) - - Contents -

The model’s ca­reer may be red-hot, but be­hind the scenes, she’s strug­gling to find some­one to fill the void.

SIN­GLE and lov­ing it? Not so much. While Kendall Jen­ner’s ca­reer may be on fire, her love life is less than siz­zling — and a Star in­sider says she’s of­fi­cially over the lone­some solo life. “She’s al­ways felt that, of all her sis­ters, she’s the one work­ing so hard to carve out a ca­reer,” says a source. “Yet she’s also the one who’s alone on Satur­day nights — and she hates it.”


The sought-after model, 23, has often tried to por­tray her­self as the most in­de­pen­dent of her fa­mous fam­ily. But the lonely jet-set­ting and break­neck work sched­ule — which she’s ad­mit­ted cre­ates swirls of anx­i­ety — isn’t just get­ting old, it’s keep­ing her from what she really wants: a new love in­ter­est. “Kendall barely knows what city she’s in any­more, let alone who she’s meet­ing,” says a source. “By the end of the day, she can’t recall a sin­gle face, whether it be­longed to a cute guy or not. She’s started putting the word out to all her friends to help set her up!” Shortly after Kendall split from bas­ket­baller Ben Sim­mons in May, she jet­ted to Cannes for the glitzy film fest and Am­fAR gala, show­ing a lot of leg on the red car­pet and stay­ing in the south of France even after bestie Bella Ha­did left, to con­tinue par­ty­ing — with the bikini and yacht posts to prove it. If all her mirror shots and sea­side self­ies were a ploy to get Ben to take no­tice, it worked — he threw a like on Kendall’s In­sta­gram a few weeks later, be­fore the ges­ture mys­te­ri­ously van­ished. But a pal claims she’s not solely after her ex’s at­ten­tion. “Her game plan is to post sexy pics and hope some­one good slides into her DMs,” says the friend.

“It gives her sat­is­fac­tion that she can still at­tract Ben from afar — but she’s been down that road be­fore and would rather not re­visit it.”

Still, claims the friend, Kendall’s pay­ing plenty of mind to her ex files. Re­ports of Ben’s re­cent sin­gle-scene ap­pear­ances, like his night out in Hol­ly­wood with Khloé Kar­dashian’s ex, Tris­tan Thomp­son — as well as pho­tos of her pre­vi­ous b-baller ex, Blake Griffin, par­ty­ing with mod­els on a yacht in Ibiza — have only upped the ante for Kendall’s man­hunt. Once the seem­ingly shi­est of her sis­ters, Kendall has lit­tered her In­sta in re­cent weeks with provoca­tive pics, from coy bath­tub shots to out-of-char­ac­ter, come-hither poses. “She’s started re­al­iz­ing she’s got to loosen up a lit­tle,” says the friend. “She knows she can come across as a cold fish, and deep down she wants love.”


In addition to so­lic­it­ing her friends for set­ups, Kendall’s ac­tively sought ad­vice from close pals Justin and Hai­ley Bieber, whose bond she ad­mires. Says an in­sider, “She’s known both of them for ages — she and Justin even had a ‘thing’ years ago — and she re­spects what they have going.”

After re­cently crash­ing one of Justin’s record­ing stu­dio ses­sions, where she spent some QT with the cou­ple, she came away “with a lot of spir­i­tual ad­vice,” says the source. “Justin and Hai­ley have been telling her she needs to find a nice church­go­ing guy, and Kendall has to won­der if they’re right. She really ad­mires how hard Hai­ley and Justin have worked on their mar­riage — and can’t help but feel a lit­tle en­vi­ous that Hai­ley’s got some­one to snug­gle up to at night.”
