The world was surprised in July when the on-again, off-again relationship between Phoenix Suns shooting guard Devin Booker and supermodel and entrepreneur Kendall Jenner was back in effect. Their relationship status was rumored to be back on, but the U.S. Open has confirmed their rekindled love.

While the action on the court showed Coco Gauff inching her way to become a better player and the rise of a culturally charismatic Frances Tiafoe, Booker and Jenner heated the stands with their public displays of affection. The two were caught kissing, cuddling, and canoodling while watching the match between Carlos Alcaraz vs. Casper Ruud in Flushing Meadows, Queens, NY. However, that wasn’t their only public stop, which was cross country.

The couple was spotted at the NBA 2K23 video game launch party in Los Angeles on Thursday, where Booker was seen competing against Chris Paul’s young son. Next, the two were found in New York City over the weekend at New York Fashion Week events, where Jenner both walked the runway and sat in the high-prile sections.

On Friday, Jenner wowed the crowd when she graced the runway for the Proenza Schouler Show with fellow supermodel Bella Hadid at Hall Des Lumieres in New York City. The 26-year-old modeled the fall/winter collection, wearing a white crochet dress with fringes completed with a pair of comfy catwalk shoes. Multiple outlets complimented Jenner’s look as fierce as she donned a slicked-back hairstyle and gave “face” during the show.

However, the couple went to the Marni Spring 2023 ready-to-wear runway show on Saturday in Brooklyn, New York, sitting side-by-side in the front row. The two were fashionably fabulous and lit the room on fire with their on-again romance and appearance during the high-profile fashion event. Jenner even took to her Instagram Stories to share a video from the celebrity-heavy event, which in millennial-speak means they are official-official.

Ironically, Jenner co-hosted a party at The Ned Hotel in NoMad celebrating the Fwrd fall campaign, where she is the retailer’s creative director, and her other basketball exes, Ben Simmons and Kyle Kuzma, were also in attendance.

According to additional sightings since getting back together, the two have had date nights in Los Angeles and even traveled last month to the Gozzer Ranch Golf & Lake Club in Idaho. The spot was infamous as the place New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson was hiding during the height of the MILF-hunter rumors.

However, the relationship can be troubling for Phoenix Suns fans, as the offseason will eventually lead to a regular season for the NBA. As fans are hoping that the Suns can finally get over the hump and bring the team closer to winning a championship, Jenner and the folklore Kardashian curse seems like it could throw a wrench in the plan.

At only 25 years old, Booker has been in the league since 2015, and his seven seasons have produced one Finals appearance, and he has been a three-time NBA All-Star. Now what is left is a championship, which would be the first ever for the franchise. Hopefully, the love will not give way to the curse that has seen other successful men defeated in the Kardashian orbit.
