Kendall Jenner and A$AP Rocky are getting serious about their relationship. The Victoria's Secret model and rapper, whose real name is Rakim Mayers, showed off their relationship to the world at the 2017 Met Gala.

A source told Hollywood Life: "It's starting to get really serious now between Kendall and Rakim [Mayers]. They both wanted to take it slow and keep it casual at the beginning, which makes sense considering their age and crazy hectic work schedule. They didn't want to jump straight into a relationship, and they also loved keeping everyone guessing."

"They didn't want to start out under the media glare, so they vowed to take it easy, and to limit the amount of times they were seen in public together, in addition to steering clear of any joint red carpet appearances," the insider added.

"They started realizing they really have something special, a very strong connection and bond, and they're now both fully committed to being in a monogamous and serious relationship. They've started upping the amount of time they're seen out with each other, and they will be making red carpet appearances together in the future," the source shared.

Meanwhile, during an interview with ET, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said she feels the world is extremely interested in her personal life. She said: "It's not always easy, but I don't know, I just like to keep my private life private. I try my best, but at the same time, I try not to let being out with someone affect my everyday life. Like, if I want to go out and grab a smoothie with a friend who's a male, I'm not gonna let the paparazzi stop me from doing that and living my life and just being a normal person.

"I try to keep things as private as I can, but when it comes to a point, it's just not a big deal," she added.
