Kendall Jenner, not Harry Styles, will be the heartbreaker, says Brody Jenner.
Harry Styles had better watch out, because Kendall Jenner just might break his heart.
That’s according to Kendall’s older half-brother Brody, anyway. The duo share Bruce Jenner as dad.
While Styles has something of a reputation as a heartbreaker after his split from Taylor Swift, Brody says the English teen hunk has never seen the likes of Kendall, who turned 18 last month.
“I hate to tell you this, but Kendall will be doing the heartbreaking,” he tells Confidenti@l. “I’m sure she’s having a fun time with him. She has a very level head, great head on her shoulders. But they are both so young.”
The couple have been spotted jetting to see each other for dates in Los Angeles, New York and most recently London.
Brody, who has resurfaced as a reality star on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after stints on “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” hasn’t gotten to know Styles yet, but the 19-year-old One Direction singer seems to have the green light from Kendall’s 30-year-old bro.
Harry Styles arrives at Kendall Jenner’s hotel in London on Dec. 14.
“It sounds like a match made in heaven,” says Brody. “That’s what it sounds like, but I’ve never met him.”
It also sounds like dad Bruce likes Styles’ style.
“My dad told me that Harry Styles plays golf, so that’s cool,” says Brody.
Brody thinks Kendall is simply enjoying dating in her teen years and isn’t too serious about anyone yet.
“She is at that age where dating is a lot of fun,” he said.
Brody himself is single and ready to mingle after ending a four-month relationship with model Bryana Holly in November. Before Holly, he dated Kristin Cavallari, Avril Lavigne and Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole.
He’ll have his chance to meet someone new when he hosts an early New Year’s bash at Ghostbar at the Palms Resort in Las Vegas on Dec. 29.
“Relatively speaking, it’s pretty easy money … go to a place with your friends, meet people, see girls, and make some money at it,” he says of the upcoming gig.
But don’t expect Brody to behave like he’s young and naive.
“These girls are crazy, though, man. The ones that come out to your appearances to see you — are the ones you have to watch out for,” he notes.

Roberts, one of the biggest stars in the world, says reality TV celebs like Kim take unwanted attention off herself. “As a film actor, I’m [only] inviting people to pay attention to my characters. But if you’re a reality star, by virtue you are asking and inviting people to pay attention to you,” Julia says in the new In Touch. “It’s great because they take that attention away from me.”
