kendall-jenner-600*A source is telling People magazine that Kendall Jenner, 17, has made a love connection with rapper Young Jinsu, 21.

“They’re dating – it’s been at least a few months,” says a source close to the couple. “They’ve been getting closer recently, and they’ve been hanging out all the time.”

The source says the couple has kept their relationship quiet but plan to go more public after her 18th birthday on Nov. 3.

“They have that spark right now – they’re just really feeling each other,” says the source. “They’re not putting it out there yet.”

The rapper recently posted a photo on Instagram of what appears to be him and Jenner, who is making a heart shape in the sky with her hands. Kendall’s sister Kylie, 16 – who has been seen in the company of Jayden Smith and rapper L’il Twist, a friend of Jinsu’s – posted the pic to Instagram as well.

“He’s so sweet,” says the source. “He kind of reminds you of Chris Brown, but way more charming and really talented. He’s been working with a lot of big-time producers and artists recently.”
