It's been the hottest question for KarJenner fans for several years: who is Kendall Jenner dating now? On May 16, fans thought it might be Taco (real name Travis Bennett), because Kendall gave him a lengthy birthday tribute on her Instagram Story that made them sound extra close. Heck, Kendall even called Taco her "bestest friend on the planet," and demanded he answer her FaceTime call. So here's everything you need to know about Taco and his relationship with Kendall.
Who is Taco?
Taco Bennett aka Yung Taco is a 24-year-old rapper and DJ, who is part of Tyler The Creator's Odd Future group. Taco has shared several photos DJing wild parties, and he will be performing at the upcoming Tecate Live Out show in October, alongside huge names the The Weeknd and The Chainsmokers. He often promotes the group's Golf Wang clothing brand, and has recently been hyping up their annual Camp Flog Gnaw music festival.
But he does more than just music! He was also a writer and actor for the Adult Swim series Loiter Squad. His big sis is also DJ, producer, and singer Syd The Kyd, and Odd Future recorded a lot of their music at Syd and Taco's house, lovingly nicknamed "The Trap."
Are Kendall and Taco dating?
While we're always thrilled to uncover a potential Kendall romance, all signs point to no. Kendall and Taco have been hanging out for years, with photos together dating back to 2013, when Kendall was just 17 years old. While the pair seems super tight and fans speculate that they're dating pretty much every time they post a photo together, it seems that they're just friends. Taco gets cozy with all of his friends, posting pics with Bella Hadid, Cara Delevigne, and the Simi Haze twins too.
They sparked rumors again in 2017 when a source spotted them "canoodling." “They were talking closely into each other's ears and laughing and touching each other when they could have easily talked regularly and heard each other without the extra touching," said the insider. But that was a year ago, and there still hasn't been any more proof of a romance. Plus, Taco is tight with Kylie, too. It really sealed the deal that they're just pals when Kenny called him her "bestest friend."
What is Taco's net worth?
Taco may live the glam life alongside Kendall and Kylie, but his net worth is nowhere near theirs. Famous Net Worth estimates him to be worth $500k, which pales in comparison to Kenny's estimated $18 million. Still, it doesn't seem to bother either of them, and Taco's career is only getting bigger and bigger.
