Rumors have had Kendall Jenner dating NBA star Blake Griffin for several weeks, ever since the pair started showing up together for low-key dinners at high-profile Los Angeles restaurants and allegedly snuggling at a string of celebrity parties. This wouldn’t have been such a big deal if it weren’t for the fact that 1) Kendall was supposedly dating A$AP Rocky while this was going on and 2) Blake has been in a relationship with Brynn Cameron, with whom he has two children, for several years.
The latest tabloid reports appear to both clarify and muddy these particular waters. According to People, Kendall Jenner dating Blake Griffin is only half the truth, since she’s really dating both flames at the same time. However, the article’s source appears to offer some contradictory quotes: Kendall is apparently frustrated that Rocky “isn’t the type to settle down or be a good boyfriend,” so she’s “playing the field” instead of doubling down with him.
And, to be clear, it’s totally fair for Kendall to do that, no matter how wonky the logic sounds. People’s article also says that Blake and Kendall hit it off after stepping out for “three consecutive nights” earlier this summer; The Sun’s take claims that it was actually six straight dates. But, whatever the actual number, Kendall and Rocky said to be “still talking,” which means their relationship is about the same one you have with the pizza guy when he gets lost on the way to your house.
So far, no article on Kendall Jenner dating Blake Griffin has broached the topic of what’s going on between Blake and Brynn Cameron. Plus, as The Superficial pointed out, Kendall and Blake could have kept things on the DL if they’d really wanted to–it wouldn’t forgive what may or may not be cheating, but it would have spared those being cheated on the embarrassment of public scrutiny. Even Kourtney Kardashian and Justin Bieber managed to keep their Beverly Hills bangings a secret for a few months, before they started sharing toothbrushes and driving Scott Disick to the psych ward.
