His decision to take part in E4 show Celebs Go Dating has already reportedly infuriated his BFF Kim Kardashian.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Kris and the show’s producers have kicked off because Jonathan has refused to fly back to Los Angeles, as well as missing Kim’s big Dubai trip.’

However, this decision didn’t sit well with his friend Kim who was reportedly ‘far from impressed.’
A source exclusively told MailOnline earlier this month that the 36-year-old reality star wants Jonathan to date girls of a ‘certain standard’ – and would prefer to set him up with someone in the States.
An insider said: ‘Kim is far from impressed – she had been looking forward to seeing Jonathan at her Mum’s annual Christmas party but he didn’t want the confrontation so he skipped the party to go to Miami.

‘Kim has been quite clear that she isn’t impressed that he is doing the programme, although she would love nothing more than for her friend to be settled and happy in a relationship.
‘The Kardashian clan and all their friends always attend without fail Kris’ Christmas event, however Jonathan wanted to avoid a fall out with Kim so stayed away.’
The source added that Kim feels she can hook Jonathan up with someone more ‘suitable’ and has her eye on a girl in America.
