Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker have been dating for a while now but some fans may remember that before they got together the model dated a few other NBA players. However, we don’t hear much about the Phoenix Suns guard’s love life pre-Jenner.
Here’s the surprising scoop on who Booker dated before Jenner, as well as those other athletes the reality star was romantically linked to in the past.
Who Kendall Jenner dated before Booker
Over the years Jenner has been linked to and dated a number of basketball players.
In 2014, the Keeping up with the Kardashians star was spotted on a dinner date with then-Dallas Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons. They weren’t seen out together much after that but reunited in 2017 when the supermodel was sitting courtside at one of his games. Their romance didn’t last though and Jenner reportedly began seeing Utah Jazz point guard Jordan Clarkson. When that ended, Jenner and ex-Los Angeles Clippers power forward Blake Griffin became an item. Jenner then went from a relationship with Griffin to one with former Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons.
The next thing fans knew, Jenner was spotted taking a road trip with Booker and a few of their friends in 2020. The model confirmed their relationship in early 2021 and they’ve been together ever since.
Booker dated a close Jenner family friend
In May 2018, while Jenner was still with Simmons they went on a double date with Booker and Kendall’s sister Kylie’s former friend Jordyn Woods. According to Life & Style, Woods and the Suns player dated for about a year before calling it quits. Neither ever commented on their breakup so it’s not known if they were together when the whole Woods-Tristan Thompson cheating scandal went down.
What Booker has opened up about is being with someone as famous as Jenner. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he said that he doesn’t consider dating in the spotlight to be “hard” and is “enjoying everything.”
“Honestly, I’m enjoying life to the fullest, and that came off my tongue so easily because it wasn’t always this way. But I feel like I’m in a good place right now,” Booker explained. “I love my family, I love the people around me, and I love the impact that I get to have on this world, the younger generation under me, and the kids who look up to me.”
As for Woods, she has moved on as well and is currently in a relationship with fellow NBA star Karl-Anthony Towns.
Rumor Booker fathered two children before he started seeing Jenner
While Booker doesn’t have a long list of ex-girlfriends, his name did end up in the headlines claiming that he was having a couple of kids with a couple of different women.
In 2019, Gossip in The City published a story about Booker getting model Aaleeyah Petty pregnant. The outlet also claimed that at the same time his high school sweetheart was expecting too. Moreover, while these two women were allegedly having his babies Booker was still in a relationship with Woods.
The whole story though turned out to be false. Booker does not have any children and it was later confirmed that the actual father of Petty’s baby is New Orleans Pelicans small forward Brandon Ingram.
