Sorry, But Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny Are Still Going Strong

Despite my best efforts, it’s getting very hard to ignore the fact that something is going on between Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny. I don’t want to talk about it, you don’t want to talk about it, but the only way out is through.

On Friday night, Jenner and Bad Bunny sat courtside at the Lakers’ semifinals game against the Warriors. And when famous people sit beside each other at a basketball game, they are on a date, right? Especially when the seats are rumored to cost $30,000. They wore coordinating snakeskin boots and leather jackets, and videos show them laughing and chatting animatedly. The duo’s basketball outing comes two weeks after they were spotted heading to a Met Gala after-party together.

If you’re wondering how we even got here, let’s rewind. Back in February, several DeuxMoi contributors claimed to have seen Jenner and Bad Bunny making out at a club in L.A. and then leaving in the same car. A few days later, they popped up at the same restaurant where Justin and Hailey Bieber also happened to be eating, leading tabloids to speculate they all went on a double date. Adding more fuel to the fire, Entertainment Tonight asserted that Jenner and Bad Bunny had a “flirty vibe.”

It gets worse. In March, Jenner and Bad Bunny were photographed displaying some heavily flirtatious body language while leaving a sushi dinner in West Hollywood. The photos showed Jenner saying good-bye to Bad Bunny while getting into a car, and, by all appearances, they were — brace yourself — kissing. Actually, in the words of TMZ, they were “touching bods” — it’s a little hard to say what was going on, but whatever bod parts were touching, it certainly looked steamy. Behold these images at your own risk.

That weekend, they took things even further, going so far as to enter the same vehicle together while leaving Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s Oscars after-party. Something tells me they were not just taking advantage of the carpool lane. Earlier this month, a source told People that things between the two two were “getting more serious.”

TMZ also spotted the duo riding horses together in California. Yes, Bad Bunny is showing a vested interest in Kendall’s hobbies, as one typically does when one wants to take a relationship to the next level. Yes, they rode the same horse like a sexy romance-novel couple. Would you care to see photos of them astride a stallion, Bad Bunny reaching around Kendall’s waist to grip the reins while she takes a selfie? Me neither. :(
