The 18-year-old model, who was previously linked to Harry Styles and 5 Seconds of Summer singer Ashton Irwin, was reportedly set up on a date with the 25-year-old NBA star by her mother, Kris Jenner, and he has now backed out of an upcoming appearance on a reality TV dating series to be with her.
A source told the MailOnline: “Mama Kris met Chandler a few weeks ago and was blown away by not only his good looks, but his promising B-ball future.
“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.
“But before the cameras had a chance to roll, he’s pulled out of the show.”
However, not everyone is happy for the couple, including Kendall’s father, Bruce Jenner, who split from Kris last October.
The source said: “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 was first spotted “flirting” with Chandler, who recently signed a three-year, $46 million deal with the Dallas Mavericks, at STK LA last month.
