Kendall Jenner and rapper Bad Bunny have split after nine months of dating. Details about the breakup haven’t been disclosed, but several outlets have confirmed it, with People being the first.
Kendall and Bad Bunny (real name is Benito Martinez Ocasio and born in Puerto Rico) were first linked in February when the two joined Justin Bieber and his wife, Haley, on a double date in Los Angeles. Throughout the year, Kendall and Bad Bunny were spotted at numerous locations, including Lakers games and Coachella in April. The Kardashians star and model even gave the “Monaco” singer a lesson in horseback riding in June. Then, she and Bad Bunny went official on Instagram for the designer Gucci in September.
The former couple kept their relationship under wraps for the most part, as they valued their privacy. In an August interview with Harper’s Bazaar and a June interview with the Wall Street Journal, Kendall reflected on her vision of love and why having a private life outside her professional one is important.
“I love really hard, and I love without apology,” she told the publication. Regarding her relationships, Kendall elaborated on why she prefers them to remain private, albeit Hollywood has a reputation for scoping out celebrity pairings.
“I try to find the balance of keeping things private and keeping things sacred,” Kendall revealed to WSJ. “Also, not letting the unfortunate frustration and stress of everyone trying to get on it [and] stop me from enjoying my side. I just think that’s the healthier way of dealing with relationships anyway.”
What led to the split of Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny?
The spilt was amicable, and there was no bitter blood between them. It was a matter of things “fizzling” out, as both Kendall and Bad Bunny have taken on new projects, with Kendall booking new gigs with her modeling career. Secondly, they haven’t been photographed together since October, when the rapper hosted NBC’s SNL, with Kendall there to support him.
Following the breakup, Kendall has kept busy skiing with friends and getting ready for Christmas by decorating her LA home with festive lights and trees. But her favorite thing in the decorations?
It’s the dollhouse that her mom, Kris, gifted her (and her other sisters) last year.
