Luke Hemmings & Arzaylea Met During A Situation That Could’ve Ended Up On Reality TV
There are so many members of the Kardashian-Jenner family that it only makes sense that they start seeping into the lives of other pop culture faves sooner or later. (I imagine they all hang out together at some giant, we're-all-culturally-relevant party.) Like how Kendall Jenner may or may not be dating Harry Styles, it looks like Kylie Jenner had a little something to do with getting 5 Seconds of Summer frontman Luke Hemmings together with his girlfriend Arzaylea. For 5SOS fans wondering how Hemmings and Arzaylea met in the first place, it looks like we now have an official answer: It was at Kylie Jenner's 18th birthday party. And that's not the only Kardashian konnection that Hemmings and Arzaylea have, as Arzaylea revealed in an interview with Vice magazine's Broadly.
In a lengthy interview that touched on the controversial role she plays in the band's fan base, Arzaylea explained that she initially met the 5SOS singer-guitarist while at Kylie's 18th birthday party in August 2015. Fans already know why Hemmings was there (he's famous and friends with the reality star), but Arzaylea's presence admittedly needs some explanation. She's already established that her parents are in the music industry, so she's got that hookup, but did you know that her dad is actually in business with Kylie's boyfriend Tyga?
God help me, but it's apparently true. According to the Broadly feature, Arzaylea's dad — a man who remains a mystery because Arzaylea wants her last name to be kept unknown — are "business partners" who both "have stakes in a headphones company." After doing a little research myself, it seems like this headphones company is Tunes Headphones (Arzaylea and Tyga both follow the Tunes Twitter account, and Arzaylea once wished it a "Happy Father's Day").
"People think I use other people for fame, but my parents have been in the music business since I was nine," she told Broadly. "I have a lot of friends who are already well known." Fair enough: Her Instagram also boasts a pic with Niall Horan.
As for that fateful meeting at Kylie's birthday party, Arzaylea told Broadly that Hemmings approached her. And it looks like they're in it to win it, still going strong eight months later, even as Hemmings travels all around the world on 5SOS' Sounds Live Feels Live tour. Who would've thought they have Kylie Jenner to thank?
