Jenner ended the relationship temporarily in June. A source told Entertainment Tonight then that Kendall feels like they’re on different paths.”

A second source added that “[they] have had discussions about their future, but they are not on the same page.”

In August, a source stressed to Entertainment Tonight the importance of timing for the couple, and how well they were doing in their relationship at that point.

“Kendall and Devin are doing great. They know that timing is everything, and what is meant to be, will be,” the source said.

Their careers have always played a factor in how well their romance could possibly go, the source added. “Their work, travel schedules, and balancing their professional lives with their personal lives can get overwhelming at times, but their love for one another draws them back to each other.” With their history, Jenner and Booker “can be real and raw with each other and completely and authentically themselves. There’s no filter, and they love that about their relationship.”

Jenner and Booker dated for over two years, and were first romantically linked in spring 2020. They went Instagram official last Valentine’s Day.
