I come to you on the eve of the Barbie movie with regrettably depressing news: Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny are still dating. Despite my best efforts over the past several months, it’s getting very hard to ignore the fact that something is going on between these two — something “super-serious,” if People is to be believed. I don’t want to talk about it, you don’t want to talk about it, but the only way out is through.
In recent days, Jenner and Bad Bunny have apparently taken their newfound love to Idaho. Specifically, they have taken it to the Gozzer Ranch Golf and Lake Club, where they’ve supposedly been enjoying each other’s company by going to the gym with an unnamed dog (?). Per People, the duo looked “in love,” “so happy together,” and again, “super-serious.” Isn’t that nice for them?
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.”
The following month, they 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. TMZ also spotted the duo riding horses together in California, indicating 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. I am so sorry to tell you this, but they did ride 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. :(
Even more photographic evidence surfaced in May, when they were spotted heading to a Met Gala after-party together. Two weeks later, they 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, and when they wear coordinating snakeskin boots with leather jackets. Further proof? Videos show them laughing and chatting animatedly.
