The latest story comes from The Mirror, which claims the 18-year-old Kardashian sister has been spotted hanging out with Ashton, 20, in New York.
A source told the newspaper: "There was definitely chemistry between Kendall and Ashton. They certainly make an attractive couple – despite the complicated back story."
That back story is those rumours from earlier this year that Kendall and Harry Styles were dating. Although we never actually saw any pictorial evidence of a romance, they were snapped hanging out together in several occasions.
5 Seconds Of Summer, meanwhile, are known to be close to the 1D guys after supporting them on tour.
According to the paper, Kendall and Ashton were hanging out with a group of pals at a New York hotel on Monday because they have some mutual friends.
So perhaps that's all there is to this. Just friends.
Whatever is happening, we imagine plenty of people are thinking the same thing: she has Harry AND Ashton as friends?! Lucky, lucky Kendall!
Back in March, the 5SOS guys hinted they weren't looking for love right now, with Ashton telling The Sun: "I don't even know half the time where we are so there is just no time for girls. We don't want a girl in every city. We really want to make something of ourselves so we're very focused on the band for now."
