Rumours were afloat about model Kendal Jenner and rapper Chris Brown dating after they were seen leaving a Paris hotel recently. Now, the reality star's best friend Gigi Hadid apparently wants to go on a double date with them.

According to HollywoodLife, Hadid has persuaded boyfriend, Zayn Malik, 23, to help make the relationship between Jenner and Brown happen. "Gigi has been talking to Zayn about [Chris and Kendall being] a potential couple. She wants them all to go out on a double date," the source said. "[Gigi] loves the idea of her best friend dating Zayn's really close friend."

Brown, 26, however, is not planning to take this relationship out of the friend zone anytime soon. "He's really enjoying being her friend now," the source said. "He's not ready [for that] and neither is she."

"They keep it cute and don't cross the lines," another source previously said. "That's the best relationship one could have and they're basking in their friendship."

"If there's one thing Kendall loves about him, it's his music. She can listen to vintage Breezy or his new stuff all day long," the source added. "She loves his voice — and she's enjoyed the few times he's sang to her privately. Ah, did she ever enjoy that. Um, we are officially jealous!"

Brown, who is single, was earlier dating actress Karrueche Tran, who split with the rapper in March 2015 after it was known that he had fathered a child with another woman. Jenner, 20, was linked to One Direction star Harry Styles in January.

"At this point in her life, Kendall is ready for a serious relationship," a source told HollywoodLife some time ago. "She thought she could just go with the flow with Harry, but it's just not making her happy," the source said.
