After a summer romance that even had them living together at one point, Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons have reportedly started cooling off.
Rumors started about Kendall and Ben’s relationship three months ago and, since then, Kendall and Ben have only been seen getting closer. They were seen cuddling at Khloe Kardashian’s Fourth of July party, and recently went on a trip with Khloe and her boyfriend Tristan to Mexico.
The party stayed at Joe Francis’ Punta Mita villa and at the time, a source told E! News that Kendall and Khloe “seemed to enjoy that they can mix their boyfriends and friends together so well.”
Regardless of the fun they had, it seems Kendall did not see herself going anywhere with the NBA star. The source said Kendall did not feel ‘fully committed’ to him, and that even though the two are still texting and in contact, the 22-year-old supermodel ‘has been spending time with other people’.
The source explained, “She always wanted to keep her options open. She likes Ben but she knew it was more of a summer fling. They both have busy careers and it is what it is. Kendall isn’t looking for anything serious. She had fun with Ben, but wasn’t ever fully committed or looking for a long-term, exclusive relationship.”
“There was nothing that caused this specifically and they will always be friends. She has a lot on her plate and isn’t really looking for a serious relationship,” they added.
The same situation happened with Kendall’s previous relationship with Blake Griffin. The two were together for about six months, after which they hit a dead end because of long distance issues.
Jenner, who bowed out on previous Fashion Weeks due to her anxiety and mental health, is anticipated to make a comeback at the New York Fashion Week for Spring/Summer 2019, which kicks off in a few weeks.
