On Wednesday, Entertainment Tonight reported that Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker have officially called it quits after two and-a-half years. The couple had been dating for almost a year when in February 2021 — just after Valentine’s Day — when the NBA player made his debut on Jenner’s social media.
One source for the outlet shared that “Kendall feels like they’re on different paths,” while another insider echoed this notion. “[The couple] have had discussions about their future but they are not on the same page,” they said.
It is no secret that Jenner has been pressured about having children from her family. To promote The Kardashians on Hulu, Jenner admitted she does experience “baby fever” particularly with her new born nephew but added that she’s “living life right now as a free bird.”
While the couple are notoriously private — only recently have they been spotted together for occasions such as Kourtney Kardashian’s wedding — Booker made a rare comment about his relationship in an interview with the Wall Street Journal Magazine.
When asked if he finds dating such a famous woman difficult, he responded, “I wouldn’t say hard. Honestly, I’m enjoying life to the fullest. And that came off my tongue so easily because it wasn’t always this way, but I feel like I’m in a good place right now.”
The split does come as a shock, even if ET says there is a chance of “reconciliation.” In January another source for the outlet believed their relationship was in a “really good place.”
“They love that they can genuinely be themselves around each other. It takes no effort and things are easy. They both love that,” the source said. “Kendall’s family loves Devin and think he is super talented. They think he is just the type of guy that Kendall needs. He is athletic, sweet, fun and still a gentleman.”
It comes just one week after it was revealed that Michael B Jordan and Lori Harvey split. Is there no hope for the rest of us?!
