Kendall Jenner cozies up with Anwar Hadid amidst breakup rumors with Ben Simmons
Kendall Jenner hung out with Anwar Hadid and a group of other friends, including his sister Bella, just months after the two were spotted engaged in a steamy kiss.
Kendall Jenner's love life is a mysterious bubble almost nobody can deny that. And to add on several more bouts of mystery to it, she was recently spotted hanging out with none other than Anwar Hadid - the same guy she was seen locking lips with, in a steamy smooch just a couple of months ago. Kendall and Anwar weren't alone this time though; accompanied by friends, and Anwar's sister and Kendall's close friend, Bella, the two were reportedly cozying up to each other, that too amidst rumors of Kendall's romance with Ben Simmons dying down.
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star and the 19-year-old model hit up the Malibu Chili Cook-Off in Malibu, California, on Friday with a couple of other friends, and even though there was no make out session going on between the two, they did seem all smiles and getting cozy with each other while going down a carnival slide together. Kendall, 22, sported a white tank top with blue jeans, teaming them up with black combat boots, and a green baseball cap.
As for Anwar, he stuck to his classic grunge vibes, sporting a black band tee and black jeans along with that. The group was grooving along to the Jesse Jo Starks performance at the event, and snippets of their eventful night were documented by both Kendall and Bella on their Instagram stories.
But as of yet, if anything more had happened between Kendall and Anwar, it still remains a mystery, especially considering just a couple of months ago Kendall and Anwar's very publicized steamy smooch happened at a CFDA Awards after-party in New York City. On top of that, that kiss had come within a week of rumors about the supermodel and the NBA star has struck up a romance started circulating.
However, a source had told Entertainment Tonight that the two of them were "nothing serious," at the time. "Anwar and Kendall are just having fun for now," the source said. "Both of them recently got out of relationships, and don't want anything too serious," they added.
They continued: "Kendall is best friends with Anwar's sisters, Gigi and Bella, and she respects them tremendously. Kendall would never want to do anything to put her relationship with Anwar's sisters in jeopardy. Kendall and Anwar have known each other for years and have always been flirtatious, and this is just another sign of that. The two enjoy one another's company and things could change, but for now, it's nothing serious."
At the same time, another source adds that after their fun-filled time at the carnival, the group headed over for dinner at Taverna Tony at the nearby Malibu Country Mart. The eyewitness shared with the outlet that Bella and Kendall - who arrived at the restaurant at around 8:30 pm - were also accompanied by four guys, and by the looks of it, it was just a friendly gathering.

"There wasn't any PDA," revealed the eyewitness, also adding that even though Kendall cuddled up to one guy, in particular, things didn't seem anything more than platonic between the two. As for getting spotted by fans, they didn't seem particularly keen on ignoring people who started spotting them. "Two girls approached them, and Kendall and Bella took selfies with them on their phones," the eyewitness says.
This outing of Kendall's come just weeks after she enjoyed a Mexican vacation with her sister, Khloe, and Khloe's baby daddy Tristan Thompson. But no official confirmation about her rumored break up has arrived yet.
