That Kendall Jenner sure is a good egg. First, she throws money at a server who wouldn’t sell her alcohol when she’s underage, and now, she’s dating Nick Jonas as a favor to her friend and fellow reality star-model, Gigi Hadid.

US Magazine reports exclusively that Gigi set Kendall up with Nick because she “wants Kendall around all the time.” You see, Gigi is dating one Joe Jonas, so she thinks it “would be fun for all of them to hang out.”

US‘s anonymous source says they were all gonna end up hanging out together anyway, so getting Nick and Kendall to bone each other was just a means to an end (How Machiavellian of you, Gigi).

How does the new couple in question feel about this? Nick’s motivation may shock you: “He absolutely thinks she’s hot.” Also the both have a flirty chemistry. Sounds like great double date potential, and hey, maybe Nick can buy Kendall alcohol at restaurants now, so she doesn’t have to humiliate restaurant staff anymore.

Now we just have to wait until the two make it official and start getting papped together. Also, we need to settle on a celebrity-couple nickname. My vote is for “Joner.”
