Devin Booker's love life: Kendall Jenner's NBA star boyfriend was once linked to Jordyn Woods
Phoenix Suns player Devin Booker is said to be extremely serious about Kendall Jenner and sources say that the two might get engaged soon
Devin Booker delivered one of the best dunks of the NBA Finals which sadly didn't count. After a grab by Mikal Bridges midway through the first quarter of Game 5, the Phoenix Suns star went on a fast break and just had to beat a charging Giannis Antetokounmpo to increase the Suns' increasing advantage.
Booker not only slammed the 2020 Defensive Player of the Year but he also appeared to be entitled to a free throw thereafter. Antetokounmpo appeared to have done a flagrant by putting his hand in Booker's face, but that was not the case. The Suns ended up balling without free throws.
NBA stars have recently been in the news for their dating lives. Last week, we reported that Clippers guard Patrick Beverley's girlfriend was once allegedly 'stolen' by rapper Drake. Earlier in April, NBA legend Paul Pierce was seen drinking and partying with strippers in a live video, putting the spotlight on his married life. Booker himself was in the news earlier for dating Kendall Jenner. Here's what's to know about the Phoenix Sun star's love life.
Who is Devin Booker dating?
According to Screenrant, Booker's relationship with Jenner is still going strong. After reports of their romance first surfaced last summer, the reality TV star and the two-time NBA All-Star basketball player have been going strong this year. However, the couple prefers to keep their personal life private, apart from the occasional PDA post.
Jenner was seen posting racy bikini snaps on Instagram while vacationing with her siblings at a spot that looked very similar to photos posted by Booker. TMZ had pointed out that the NBA player's 'throwback' photo album on Instagram, which had pictures of him enjoying the sights of Slide Rock State Park in Arizona, showed a location very similar to Jenner's.
'The happiest Kendall has ever been in a relationship'
On Valentine's Day 2021, Jenner and Booker made their romance Instagram official by uploading numerous gorgeous photographs together. Jenner later confirmed the connection on the 'KUWTK' reunion, telling Andy Cohen, "He's my boyfriend," when he inquired about Booker. Jenner, 25, and Booker, 24, recently celebrated their first anniversary and have been making their relationship more public since then.
According to People, the couple celebrated their anniversary by posting a pair of romantic PDA-filled images on social media. They were seen snuggling up together while playing with a dog in one photo, and sharing an embrace in another. A source told the news outlet after the couple was seen holding hands in New York City in April that this is "the happiest Kendall has ever been in a relationship".
Jordyn Woods dating rumors
However, Jenner isn't the only woman Booker has dated. In May 2018, the Phoenix Suns player was photographed on a double date with Kendall Jenner and her then-boyfriend Ben Simmons, sparking dating rumors with Kylie Jenner's old BFF Jordyn Woods, according to Lifestyle magazine.
According to Us Weekly, the pair split up before Woods' bombshell infidelity scandal with Khloé Kardashian's beau Tristan Thompson in February 2019. The relationship was rumored to have ended before the Thompson controversy but neither Jordyn nor Booker ever acknowledged it.
But Booker has moved on and Lifestyle magazine reported that he is ready to propose to Jenner. An insider said “it’s only a matter of time” before the 24-year-old gets down on his knees to say the magic words. They added that the duo “have become very serious lately, talking about their futures, about spending more time together and even how they would like to be young parents,” and that “there’s really no rush, but they do keep talking about next steps”.
