Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker has had himself quite the summer.
In addition to making headlines for basketball-related reasons, the 25-year-old has also been something of a mainstay in the news cycle over his on-again, off-again relationship with Kendall Jenner.
This week video emerged of Booker partying it up at rapper Jack Harlow’s concert.
By all accounts, he seemed to have a great time:

Booker even went so far as to post the clip on his Instagram Stories:
The one notable omission there appeared to be any reference to Jenner. Similarly, she didn’t have any Jack Harlow-related content on her page.
This led to a lot of speculation about whether Booker and Jenner were still an item.
After beginning to date in 2018, the Suns star and internationally renowned model were joint at the hip for nearly three years. In 2022, suddenly, something went awry.
A reason for their break-up would emerge not long after.
Just when it was presumed that the prospect of reconciliation was a non-starter, photos came out of Booker and Jenner getting very touchy-feely on a trip. Obviously that surprised some folks. Then came more imagery of them getting very intimate together.
Last month pictures of them on a night out leaked – seemingly confirming they were back on.
As recently as a few weeks ago, reports surfaced that marriage might lay ahead for Booker and Jenner.
“Devin made a huge effort to fix things with Kendall almost as soon as they broke up,” that particular report made clear.
“The threat of losing her was a huge wake-up call for Devin. He’s been laser focused on making her happy ever since, it’s like they’re back in the honeymoon stage. Her friends and family are thrilled that they’re back together, everyone would love to see them get married.”
So with that in mind, why wasn’t Jenner with Booker at this Jack Harlow bash? It’s unclear.
This is shaping up to be a massive year for Booker both professionally and personally.
The Suns objectively underperformed in 2021-22. There is no other way to describe getting to the NBA Finals one year, coming within two wins of a winning a title and then not even getting out of the second round a season later.
Plus, the way Phoenix and Booker went out – getting totally emasculated by Luka Doncic – was tough to watch.

Fortunately, Booker is still young. And if he can guide his Suns back into championship contention or somewhere close to it, he will undoubtedly reclaim his throne among the best next generation talents in the NBA.
As the regular season approaches, a better picture of Booker and Jenner’s relationship status should emerge.
Once it does, everyone will be clear once and for all on where the pair truly stands.
