Kendall Jenner is single again after reportedly breaking up with boyfriend Ben Simmons.
According to what sources have told PEOPLE, Jenner and the Australian NBA player are supposedly "on a break" after "the relationship ran its course." That said, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's new mood is all about "spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode."
Page Six was one of the first outlets to report inklings of their breakup, which comes a few months shy of what would have been their one-year anniversary. The couple sparked romance rumors last summer – around June/July-time — when the model was caught cuddling with the 76ers athlete at a gathering on Khloé Kardashian's Instagram Stories.
In February, Jenner finally confirmed on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that she and Simmons were, in fact, an item. “So obviously you’re dating this guy who’s on the 76ers. How long have you been dating him?” DeGeneres said at the time, before confessing with a coy smile: “For a bit now.”
What's saddest about the split, Jenner recently opened up to Vogue about her love life and possible plans to get married — presumably to Simmons — and seemed very open to the idea. “Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day,” she told the magazine. “I got a glimpse of how my sisters dealt with [the attention] and it’s cool to learn from that."
Jenner added: “I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term [what it’s going to be]."
