Despite heading to Mexico a couple weeks ago with Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson, Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons are reportedly fizzling out (opens in new tab). The unofficial couple rented a $25,000/month luxury home in West Hollywood (opens in new tab) together this summer, but unlike the whirlwind romances that have led to engagements throughout summer '18 (opens in new tab), Kendall has decided to focus on her career.
“Kendall and Ben’s relationship is fizzling and dissipating due to scheduling conflicts,” says an US Weekly source (opens in new tab). “Kendall is so busy and has so much going on and doesn’t want to wait around for anyone."
Another source confirmed to E! (opens in new tab) that the couple is "still in contact and texting, but [Kendall] has been spending time with other people." Kendall was also reportedly never "fully committed" to Simmons. "She always wanted to keep her options open. She likes Ben, but she knew it was more of a summer fling," the source continues (opens in new tab). "They both have busy careers and it is what it is. Kendall isn't looking for anything serious. She had fun with Ben, but wasn't ever fully committed or looking for a long-term, exclusive relationship."
The supermodel and basketball player, both 22, started hanging out together in May and accidentally went public (opens in new tab) when Khloé posted an Instagram story of the two cozying up at the Kardashians' Fourth of July party. They also looked super coupley at Ben's birthday party (opens in new tab) in July. Despite the fun times she had with Ben, Kendall has decided to keep her options open...for now.
