The internet is trying to manifest a new relationship for Khloé Kardashian after she was seen cozying up to "365 Days" star Michele Morrone at Milan Fashion Week. In a photo shared on the actor's Instagram Story on Sept. 24, he was pictured with his arm wrapped around Kardashian backstage at a show and, of course, it set social media ablaze.
"Michele thought Khloe was very nice. That's the extent of the story."
Reps for Kardashian did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR's request for comment, but a rep for Morrone told POPSUGAR, "They were both at the [Dolce and Gabbana] show. D&G asked them to take a photo together. Michele thought Khloé was very nice. That's the extent of the story." Another source told People that "The Kardashians" star had "never met [Morrone] before" this weekend. "She just met him in Milan that night," the insider added. "They are not dating. She has no plans to see him again."
Kardashian attended the fashion event to support her sister Kim Kardashian's debut collection with Dolce & Gabbana, but ended up sitting next to Morrone at the show. And that was all it took for the internet to declare Kardashian and Morrone the ship no one knew they needed. One Twitter user tweeted, "Khloe Kardashian and Michele Morrone (Massimo) is a duo I never knew I needed." Another fan added, "you don't understand after i've seen that picture i NEED khloe kardashian and michele morrone together."
The overwhelming sentiment on Twitter is that it's time for Kardashian to finally find someone who will remain committed to her. Though it seems Morrone is not that person, that's not stopping fans from rooting for the duo. "Umm I need michele to be with khloe like this MUST happen i'll never let it go," another passionate Twitter user wrote.
Both Kardashian and Morrone appear to be single at the moment, although the Good American founder previously suggested that she's focusing her energy on her children: True, 4, and her new baby boy, both of whom she shares with ex Tristan Thompson. In June, the reality star commented on an Instagram post speculating that she was dating again with, "Definitely NOT True !!! I love you! Thank you for the nice wishes but I am not seeing a soul. I am happy focusing on my daughter and myself for awhile."
As for Morrone, he told People in June that he's "absolutely single" and later revealed himself to be a romantic at heart during an August interview with Decider. While talking about his Netflix movie, "The Next 365 Days," Marrone explained why he thinks it's time to get back to old-fashioned, pre-internet-era romance.
"In these days, it's incredibly difficult to find real love because everyday we're bombed by social media, this weird app, to find each other," he said. "And they found each other without an app. They found each other without social media. Their love exploded in such a deep way that it's very difficult to find in these days. If you think about poets in the 1890s, they used to write about love and it was deep. They used to feel love much more than now."
