Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker is having an exceptional 2022-23 NBA campaign. The race for MVP, at the moment, appears to be between him and Jayson Tatum of the Boston Celtics.
Unfortunately, things have not fared as well for Booker off the court.
A month ago he and his longtime girlfriend, Kendall Jenner, broke up.
It appears that she has already moved on.
According to multiple reports, something is now brewing between Jenner and international pop sensation, Harry Styles. The pair attempted to squash the rumors in a statement to E! News, describing themselves as “just good friends,” but where there is smoke there is usually fire.
Sources close to Styles and Jenner have described their relationship as “interesting,” while also acknowledging that nothing official is brewing between the pair as of yet.
Booker and Jenner obviously had a rollercoaster ride of a romance. As recently as last month she was sending him extremely intimate messages in public, only for them to split shortly thereafter.
Although Booker hasn’t said anything publicly about his breakup with Jenner, photos of him partying hard in the club with droves of ladies speak for themselves.
This obviously isn’t the first time Booker and Jenner have gone their separate ways. The last time it happened, the latter was heavily courted by the former for a reunion.
“Devin made a huge effort to fix things with Kendall almost as soon as they broke up,” one report detailing the situation explained.
“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.”
It will be interesting to see if history ultimately repeats itself this time around.
Booker is in the midst of arguably the most important NBA season of his career. With Chris Paul on his last legs, this particular group has a maybe two-year window in which it can claim a title.
Maybe she can teach their kids jiu-jitsu too. https://t.co/bCJYie7ZCZ

The last thing it needs is its best player getting bogged down by female drama.
Will Booker be able to claim his first championship this year? Is yet another reconciliation between him and Jenner in the cards?
An answer to all those questions will emerge in the coming weeks and months.
