Love is in the air between these two!
Kendall Jenner is apparently very smitten with NBA Dallas Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons, and it was Kendall's momma Kris Jenner who set the two up!
Chandler Parsons, who recently signed a $40 million dollar contract, apparently met Kris a few weeks ago, and Kris immediately thought her 18-year-old daughter and this 25-year-old man would be perfect for each other!
Here's what a source said:
"Mama Kris met Chandler a few weeks ago and was blown away by not only his good looks, but his promising B-ball future."
Well, we guess Chandler must REALLY like Kendall because he apparently backed out of a reality television gig just for her!
The b-ball player was due to appear on a reality dating show before all of this went down, but Kendall must've voiced her concern about him kissing other ladies because Parsons put the brakes on that show right before filming was about to happen!
Here's what a source said:
"Chandler was just about to start filming a series similar to The Bachelor. He was going to be introduced to a group of gorgeous women in hopes of being fixed up with the girl of his dreams."
However Chandler Parsons' friends are NOT thrilled with their buddy's new lady in his life, and they are trying to give him a heads up before he falls head over heels for her! One source said:
"Lots of girls are warned off dating athletes by friends. But in Parsons' case, it’s his buddies who are warning him against dating a Kardashian! Everyone knows that when you date a Kardashian… you have to deal with Kris who is totally enmeshed in the lives of her kids. No matter how hot Kendall is, it’s not worth it. Let’s face it… one of the Kardashian girls is always romancing a handsome athlete. You had your Reggie Bush, your Kris Humphries, your Lamar Odom, and now you got the new kid on the roster… Chandler Parsons!"
And although Kris is obviously thrilled that her matchmaking skills have seemingly worked out, her own separated man Bruce Jenner is not in love with the idea of his daughter dating a professional athlete.
He knows that professional players are total players in the love game which can sometimes lead to heartbreak for women! Although he's probably going to bite his tongue on this one! A source explained why:
"On one hand Bruce knows how most professional athletes are major players and he doesn’t want that for his daughter. On the other hand, he doesn’t want to cause trouble since his daughter’s already been through so much this year with her parents' separation. Besides, it would be like trying to close the barn door after the horse is already out."
Kendall has had a lot of rumors flying around about her dating past, so we're not sure how long or serious this relationship will be, but if the two youngin's are happy - we don't see anything wrong with her following in her sisters' footsteps and dating a NBA player!
Athletes really seem to like this family and vice-versa!
