Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker have long been the subject of romance rumors. Despite denying involvement in the past, the pair continues to drop hints that they are more than just friends.Recent interest in the rumors began with a strawberry on InstagramLast week, Jenner shared a video of herself on Instagram dazzling in glam makeup, with a strawberry emoji in the caption. Booker responded, “I like strawberries.” A fan noticed, and rumors sparked anew about the pair. These rumors have persisted for months, with every action made in public by the pair being scrutinized by fans.Jenner has a fondness for NBA playersBooker, an NBA player, would be Jenner’s newest beau in a rumored line of NBA boyfriends.According to CheatSheet, “The first NBA star Kendall was linked to was then-Dallas Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons in 2014. After a dinner date, they weren’t seen out much together until 2017 when the supermodel was sitting court-side at one of his games before hitting up the same nightclubs. But their romance eventually fizzled out soon after.A year later, Jenner reportedly moved on with then-Los Angeles Lakers rookie D’Angelo Russell. However, despite several news outlets noting that they were an item, sources claimed they were never anything more than friends.In 2016, Jenner was rumored to be involved with another Lakers player, Jordan Clarkson, after a video of them kissing at a party surfaced online. Within a year though it was over.In 2017, Jenner started seeing then-Clippers power forward Blake Griffin. But in April 2018, they were no longer a thing.Jenner went from a relationship with Griffin to one with Philadelphia 76ers superstar Ben Simmons. Things between them really heated up in the summer of 2018 when they reportedly shacked up together in L.A. They dated on and off for a while but in 2020 sources said that there’s nothing serious going on between them.”She prefers to keep her private life privateAnd then in early 2020, fans began noticing Jenner spending time with Booker, a 23-year-old Phoenix Suns NBA player. A road trip by the pair back in May fueled rumors that they were dating. But friends say they simply aren’t. One friend close to the situation said they are, “absolutely not dating or hooking up.” Jenner is notoriously mum on her private life in public, saying to ET Online in a video, “A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally. Like, once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair.I’m very young. And right now, I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain, and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term [what it’s going to be].”But that didn’t stop Jenner from some spicy comments about her love lifeHowever, her sense of privacy didn’t stop her from firing off a NSFW tweet in response to fans who speculated on her involvement with multiple NBA players. One fan tweeted a video joking that NBA players were passing Jenner around, to which another fan replied, “Maybe she’s passing them around.” Jenner herself then weighed in, saying, “they act like i’m not in full control of where i throw this c–ch.”So what happened over the weekend?Over the weekend, the pair was seen together at a restaurant in California. Although they were obviously there together, the pair left separately through different doors, likely to avoid a swarm of cameras and renewed speculation about their relationship. AOL reports, “The 24-year-old model wore a white Meshki mini-dress… …and beige heels, while the 23-year-old NBA star went casual in a black hoodie, jeans and a white trucker hat. This was one of the first times Devin has been spotted out since leaving the NBA bubble in Florida after his team, the Phoenix Suns, was eliminated from the playoffs.Though they entered and exited the venue separately, Kendall did get into Devin’s car at the end of the evening. The pair were joined by pal D’Angelo Russell as well as Kendall’s younger sister, Kylie Jenner, and several of her friends.”Attempts to avoid scrutiny didn’t seem to work, as the internet is abuzz today again with the rumor that the pair may be dating. There may be reasons besides privacy to keep the relationship mum, though. Booker previously dated Kendall’s sister Kylie Jenner’s former best friend, Jordyn Woods.Secrecy may be doing more to fuel interest the rumors than anything elseWhether friends or more, the rumors around Jenner and Booker will continue to fly as long as the pair continues to slyly suggest that they are dating, while publicly refusing to address it. Jenner’s desire for privacy may backfire as fans become more invested in finding out the truth, rather than less, the more they’re left to wonder on their own.
