Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin are reportedly having fun getting to know one another but according to a new report, the model took things slow with the Los Angeles Clippers player for several weeks because she was afraid of the groupies he comes in contact with due to his high-profile career.
Although Jenner and Griffin have done their best to keep their relationship to themselves, an insider recently spoke out, claiming that the athlete was ready to commit to 21-year-old Jenner far sooner than she was with him.
“Blake had actually been pushing for a commitment way more than Kendall,” a source explained to Hollywood Life on Oct. 28. “He’s crazy about her and wanted to put it on lock down before she took her next international modeling assignment and got paired up with some hunky male model or actor. Kendall wanted to take things a bit more slowly, because she wasn’t sure she could deal with all the basketball groupies and she didn’t want Blake to feel like she was pushing him for a commitment."
Jenner and Griffin were first spotted with one another in early August after the model was linked for a year and a half to rapper ASAP Rocky. As fans will recall, Jenner and the rapper appeared to be heating up their romance until Jenner stepped out with Griffin in Los Angeles for a night out with some friends.
“Kendall and Blake just clicked immediately, there was a huge mutual attraction and they also have a very similar sense of humor,” a source close to the reality star told Hollywood Life. “Kendall definitely prefers dating an athlete over a rapper — she really loves what amazing shape Blake is in and finds him to be sexy as hell. Right now they’re spending all their free time together and seeing where things go, but Kendall is super into Blake, more so than I’ve ever known her to be. It’s early days but this is looking like the real deal and could get very serious very fast."
