Zayn Malik supposedly decided to attend Kylie Jenner’s 18th birthday celebrations last weekend for ulterior reasons.
Zayn Malik is reportedly keen on using Kylie Jenner’s connections to advance his solo career.
The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star turned 18 years old on August 10 and last weekend Kylie threw parties celebrating her milestone new age, including an afterparty at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood.
Rumours are rife Zayn, who called off his two-year engagement with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards earlier this month, has a crush on Kylie.
But apparently his interest in Kylie extends beyond romance as Zayn, 22, is looking to get in good with her milieu for business purposes.
“Zayn wants to mix in these circles now he’s single. He loves the music scene that Kylie is part of, and is a fan of all the rappers and the R&B singers invited to her party,” a source told UK newspaper The Mirror.
“While he’s recording in LA, he wants to ingratiate himself into that scene, and the best way is on the party circuit.”
Zayn is focused on launching his solo career after abruptly leaving his former boy band One Direction in March.
The British star is said to be hoping his appearance at Kylie’s bash last weekend will air on her reality TV programme, as it would give his status in Hollywood a further boost.
“Kylie’s birthday will feature heavily in the new series of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and he knows it wouldn’t hurt his Stateside image to be featured on the show,” the insider revealed.
Kylie’s birthday festivities were attended by her sister Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Kim and Kanye West, Caitlyn Jenner and other fabulous celebrities.
Kylie was gifted amazing presents, as it’s claimed her boyfriend Tyga purchased a white Ferrari 458 for his love, a car that is worth over $260,000.
