It’s been slightly greater than seven months since they had been first noticed out collectively, however now that the fact star-turned-supermodel (form of) opened as much as Vogue about her maybe-boyfriend, followers could be questioning how Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin met. In the interview revealed on March 14, Vogue spoke to Jenner after Valentine’s Day, and requested her if she had a boyfriend. While she refused to expose any particular particulars, she did point out that she was calling the reporter whereas “visiting a good friend” in Michigan — which is the place Griffin, an influence ahead for the Detroit Pistons, occurs to be primarily based.
“I like my personal life,” Jenner informed Vogue. “Yeah… no. I’m glad. He’s very good,” she mentioned with out naming a reputation. “I’ve somebody being very good to me.”
Since Jenner and Griffin have been tremendous tight-lipped about their are-they-or-aren’t-they standing, it is arduous to say for certain how they first crossed paths. Based on a few of their earliest outings, nevertheless, it appears as if they could have initially been set-up by pals — and, if Jenner’s feedback to Vogue in February are any indication, they’re nonetheless being very good to one another.
Rumors about Jenner and Griffin initially began swirling after they had been noticed hanging out at a Hollywood club in early August 2017, based on TMZ. That identical week, TMZ snapped them leaving a fancy restaurant, with every of them hopping in separate vehicles.
Paparazzi caught Jenner and Griffin going out to dinner once more on Aug. 31, 2017, TMZ and E! each reported. They had been joined by Jenner’s friend Hailey Baldwin and Griffin’s fellow NBA buddy Chandler Parsons, who a TMZ supply mentioned were not dating in a June 2017 report, however had been simply pals.
OK, bear with me right here: Baldwin, as most Kardashian-Jenner followers in all probability know, has been pals with both Kendall and Kylie Jenner for years. Parsons, a small ahead for the Memphis Grizzlies, and Baldwin had been spotted hanging out by TMZ again in June 2017. Parsons and Griffin palled around a ton that summer, however Griffin was reportedly nonetheless engaged to fellow athlete, and mom of his two youngsters, Brynn Cameron.
It wasn’t till Sept. 7, 2017, nevertheless, supply informed Us Weekly that Griffin and Cameron had actually split again in July. So, if Baldwin and Parsons had been hanging out over the summer time, and Parsons and Griffin had been hanging out over the identical summer time, and Griffin break up along with his fiancé round July, then it is in all probability secure to say that since Griffin and Jenner had been first snapped collectively in August, they had been doubtless first launched by… Baldwin and Parsons. Phew.
Again, none of this has been confirmed by any of the events concerned (and doubtless by no means will likely be judging by Jenner’s Vogue profile), nevertheless it form of is smart, proper?
Jenner and Griffin have slowly eased into the general public eye collectively over the past a number of months, and Jenner informed Vogue that is the best way she likes to play it in terms of courting. While commenting on rumors that she is homosexual, she mentioned, “I believe it’s as a result of I’m not like all my different sisters, who’re like, ‘Here’s me and my boyfriend!’ So it was a factor for a minute as a result of nobody ever noticed me with a man.” She continued, “I’d at all times go that additional mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking round on a regular basis. You don’t need to, like, look loopy.”
In the tip, although, we might by no means understand how or when Jenner and Griffin first met. (But, hey, Kendall: Can you ship me an indication if my assumption is spot-on?) The solely factor that basically issues is that they are each glad, and that whoever is “being very good” to Jenner retains doing simply that.
