The 2010s romance between Kendall Jenner and Harry Styles was a moment, but in the years that have followed, whether they have been secret lovers or just friends, the two have continued to share a special kind of chemistry.
Jenner was one of the singer's first serious partners and frequent muse, while Styles was the supermodel's sweet musician boyfriend of her late teen years. The two first began their romance toward the end of 2013, before opting to amicably remain friends several years later.
Now, following Styles's and Jenner's recent breakups with their respective partners, Olivia Wilde and Devin Booker, the two have reconnected and reportedly leaned on one another once again, demonstrating that their bond is still alive and well (and may even return to being something more).
