AceShowbiz - It looks like Devin Booker never thought about settling down with Kendall Jenner before the couple decided to break up. The NBA star was reportedly "not going to propose" to the model when they were still dating.
The 25-year-old had been dating the reality star since 2020 when the pair called it quits on Friday, June 26. Now, an insider has claimed that they are more "focused" on their careers after the athlete failed to pop the question.
"While they care for each other, Devin was not going to propose marriage and his priority is his career," a source told PageSix. "Kendall's career also dominates her life."
The source went on to explain that "The Kardashians" star had to have a "talk" with her former boyfriend and when they realized the relationship was "not moving forward", it was time to call it a day. The source added, "After two years they had the 'where is this going' talk. And since they were not moving forward, it was time to take a break, probably permanently."
The claims come just days after a different insider explained that Kendall, who was reportedly linked to Ben Simmons when she was first spotted with Devin, had hit a "rough patch" with her boyfriend despite having had a "nice time" in Italy for the wedding of Kendall's sister Kourtney Kardashian to Travis Barker back in May.
"Kendall and Devin hit a rough patch recently and have been split for about a week and a half. They had a really nice time in Italy for Kourtney's wedding," an unnamed informant shared. "But once they got back, they started to feel like they weren't aligned and realized they have very different lifestyles."
The insider also hinted that Kendall could have been the one to instigate the split as she wanted "space" but insisted that they still "care about each other" and hope to work things out. "Kendall told Devin she wanted space and time apart from him. They have been in touch since and do care about one another. They both hope to make it work, but as of now, they are split," said the insider.
