Jada Pinkett Smith was behind the controversy of earlier this month
A week or so ago, Kendall Jenner, Kris Jenner’s 17-year-old daughter, model and reality star, made a lot of headlines after photos of her holding hands with 14-year-old Jaden Smith at her birthday party. A new report claims Jaden’s mother was behind the whole thing.Media Take Out (so you know to take the report with a pinch of salt) claims to have it on very good authority that Jada Pinkett Smith personally saw to Jaden’s love life by hooking him up with Kendall.
Kris Jenner, Kendall’s mother and momager to the Kardashian girls Kim, Kourtney and Khloe, was also in on the deal, which was reportedly meant to get them both (and the kids) plenty of media exposure.
“Jada Pinkett Smith brokered a deal... with Kris Jenner – to have Jada's son JADEN date Kris' daughter Kendall Jenner,” MTO writes.
The report argues that Kris had been trying for months to get more media attention for Kendall, so she thought starting rumors of a new romance would be just the thing to make this happen. If so, it worked.
“Kris was pitching us all kinds of ideas, she threw around names of celeb children that Kris could date. We all thought that Jaden [Smith] was the most interesting,” a “top snitch” says for MTO.
Of course, that the two are dating is highly debatable, especially since Kendall has already denied all rumors to that effect.
One day after the photo of her holding hands with Jaden emerged online, she was telling E! News that she didn’t even think people would make such a fuss about it because she held hands with a lot of people at the party, which saw one of the backyard pools converted into an ice skating rink.
Plus, she stressed, Jaden was her best friend, like her younger brother, so she would never even consider dating him.
