Why Were Kendall Jenner & Rita Ora Hanging Out at Cannes?

Kendall Jenner was photographed talking with Rita Ora at Cannes Film Festival on Thursday. No big deal, right? Celebrities are constantly in pictures together. Except, this was a bit of a surprising sight.

Ora once dated Rob Kardashian, Jenner's brother. And, it got messy. A long story short: Ora reportedly cheated on Kardashian with Jonah Hill. But, even before the 2012 split, Ora wasn't exactly in his family's good graces. Khloe Kardashian told Us Weekly following their breakup that  "they were actually together for about a year, but Rob was never allowed to admit that they were actually an item because she's in the entertainment industry, she wanted to present herself to the world as a single girl."

Ora tells a different story, though, claiming she didn't date Rob at all. 

That's why this picture of Jenner and Ora is so interesting. If Rob was so hurt by Ora, would he mind that Jenner was chatting with her at this Cannes gala?  Maybe, or maybe he's moved on. But, this just shows that Jenner is indeed a classy woman. And, that includes being polite to those who perhaps weren't so polite to you in the past. (Us Weekly)
