Earlier this week, there were seen together in New York and bystanders observed them holding hands. Here they are today heading back to her apartment after hitting the gym. E! News reported yesterday that they’re not yet officially dating. 


“A source tells E! News the actor and model are "definitely interested in each other," but they're not in a rush to put a label on things right now.

"Kaia is the one that doesn't want to be in an exclusive relationship right now. She has a lot of projects on her plate and wants her freedom," the insider explains. "She does love hanging out with Jacob and they are spending time in New York City for the week while she works."

And Jacob, who was previously linked to Euphoria co-star Zendaya, is respecting Kaia's decision, with the source sharing, "He is definitely interested in her and is happy to see where things go for now."


As they figure things out, the source says they're "spending a lot of alone time together," during which they "love doing casual things like ordering their favorite food and relaxing at home."

Maybe it’s because I’m not on TikTok but if you’re on a work trip and the person you’re “getting to know” comes with you, and you’re “spending a lot of time alone together” at home eating and chilling, that tells me you don’t want to be apart. There’s a difference between “it might not last” and “this isn’t serious”. What is serious for a time doesn’t have to result in long-term love. But I don’t know that we can say this is casual. 

We do, however, have the official answer now about Jacob and Zendaya. Not that there weren’t signs. They were together at the beginning of quarantine, and then he went back to Australia. And now here we are. Jacob is with Kaia. How long before we see them hanging out with her parents and close family friend Harry Styles? Ummmm… Harry Styles and Zendaya?! Will you co-sign this Gossip Genie wish?!
