AceShowbiz - The 2014 Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton, joined a dinner organized by Kim Kardashian special for her "Cannes Clique" on Tuesday, June 23, after he got close to Kendall Jenner. The British racing driver was pictured together with the other guests in a black-and-white photograph Kim posted on Twitter and Instagram.
In addition to Lewis and Kim, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Tyga, Ryan Seacrest, Corey Gamble and comedian Steve Harvey were seen in the group photo. A caption for the picture read, "Cannes Clique." The 34-year-old relity TV star was in the South of France town for the Cannes Lions festival.
Lewis' attendance was apparently because of his close relationship with Kendall. Unfortunately, the 19-year-old model didn't join the group dinner as she wasn't in Europe yet. Their friendship appeared to blossom during Monaco Grand Prix last month. The two were photographed together with other pals, including Gigi Hadid and Hailey Baldwin.
Following the Grand Prix, mother Kris reportedly encouraged Kendall to date him because he's a good guy. "She really wants Kendall to date him. Lewis and Kris have become friendly in recent months and she thinks he's perfect for her daughter," an insider said. "Kendall usually goes for bad boys like Chris Brown and Justin Bieber so Lewis could be a good influence on her."
