Are Gigi and Bella Hadid upset Kendall Jenner is â€śhooking upâ€ť with their brother Anwar? A certain website is claiming to know their reaction. But Gossip Cop has learned the story is largely untrue.
RadarOnline is branding Jenner a â€śbackstabbing BFFâ€ť in the wake of a photo surfacing of her kissing Anwar at a CFDA Awards after-party. According to the site, sheâ€™s â€ścreated model mayhemâ€ť with her â€śformer bestiesâ€ť over her â€śsecret hookupsâ€ť with Gigi and Bellaâ€™s younger brother, who is described as â€śbarely legal.â€ť Itâ€™s specifically alleged the sisters are â€śbothered,â€ť but Jenner is unfazed by their dismay.
A so-called â€śsource close to the situationâ€ť is quoted as saying, â€śKendall doesnâ€™t care what anyone thinks about her and Anwar hooking up, including his sisters.â€ť The blog goes on to contend Jenner â€śsunk her teeth into Anwar this week even though he is still suspected to be with longtime girlfriend,â€ť Nicola Peltz. Alleges the supposed snitch, â€śKendall has had the hots for Anwar forever and the fact that he was with Nicola only made her want him more.â€ť
But Gossip Cop canâ€™t help but wonder if the website really has a â€śsource close to the situationâ€ť because so much of its article is false. For starters, the Hadid sisters are not Jennerâ€™s â€śformer besties.â€ť There hasnâ€™t been any kind of falling out and the women remain friends. Second, the outlet has no proof to support its contention that Kendall and Anwar have had â€śsecret hookups,â€ť plural. To date, only a single picture has emerged of them kissing at one party. Additionally, Kendall and Anwar are not dating, as Gossip Cop exclusively reported on Wednesday. Their kiss shouldnâ€™t be misconstrued as a serious relationship.
Third, itâ€™s a bit silly and misleading to deem Anwar â€śbarely legal.â€ť He turned 18 nearly a full year ago and will be 19 on June 22. He is only a few years younger than Jenner, and he and Peltz actually have a larger age difference. Sheâ€™s already 23, while 22-year-old Jenner wonâ€™t be until November. Thereâ€™s no justifiable reason then to raise age-related eyebrows on one pairing and not the other.
Fourth, Anwar is not â€śstill withâ€ť Peltz, despite the implication that he cheated on her with Jenner. The former couple hasnâ€™t been seen together since early May, and People reports they â€śrecently split,â€ť which is what Gossip Cop was told as well. Fifth, while the site maintains Gigi and Bella are â€śbotheredâ€ť by Jenner and Anwarâ€™s kiss, the far more credible People is actually reporting the exact opposite, specifically stating, â€śGigi and Bella wouldnâ€™t be bothered by it.â€ť As evidence that there is no issue, Jenner and Anwar were even seen going to Gigiâ€™s New York apartment this week. If the site really had a â€śsourceâ€ť close to the situation, it would know all of this.
It should also be noted that People backs up our reporting on Jenner being single. In contrast, Gossip Cop has pointed out multiple significant errors in RadarOnlineâ€™s report that disprove not just the small details, but the entire premise. There is no proof Gigi and Bella are upset about their brother kissing Jenner. But as explained here, thereâ€™s evidence they arenâ€™t.
