Of all the Kardashian/Jenner sisters, Kendall keeps her private life close to her chest.

Although every move she makes hits the headlines, she rarely speaks about her public life and does not embrace the same level of attention as other members of the family.

So in typical Kendall style she’s tried her darndest to keep her latest romance under wraps for as long as possible.

But she and Devin Booker all but confirmed they were an item as they sneaked in some PDA during a beach trip in Malibu earlier this week.

The 24-year-old model and Phoenix Suns basketball star tried to find some privacy, hiding behind some stairs to get a bit frisky.

Rumours of a romance between the pair have been swirling for months. In April, they were photographed on a road trip from Los Angeles to Arizona, and the following month, they were seen cruising around LA.

Around that time, an insider told People that the relationship was strictly platonic.

"She and Devin have a lot of mutual friends," the source said. "They're just friends for now but you never know with Kendall."

Kendall and Devin have run in the same social circles for years. Devin (23) previously dated her sister Kylie's ex-bestie Jordyn Woods, who was booted from the Kardashian/Jenner inner circle after smooching Khloe Kardashian's baby daddy Tristan Thompson.

While they’ve hung out and partied together, it took several years for a relationship to form between the model and the athlete.

"They’re hooking up, but they’re not serious,” another insider says. “She’s talking to a couple different guys. She has so many men after her it’s crazy."

When rumours first swirled about Kendall and Devin, the model received criticism about her pattern of dating NBA players.

While the reality TV mogul – who is reportedly worth a whopping $45 million – is entitled to date whoever she wants, it’s clear that she has a type.

Here's a list of all the professional basketball players Kendall has been linked to.

Jordan Clarkson

Back in November 2016, Kendall was spotted getting up close and personal with Jordan at Drake's after-party after the American Music Awards.

"You could see that they're really into each other and they certainly weren't hiding it. They were very touchy-feely!” an eyewitness claimed at the time. Kendall has never confirmed the relationship.

D'Angelo Russell

No stranger to sitting courtside, Kendall was spotted cheering on D'Angelo when he was part of the LA Lakers and rumours abounded that the pair were romantically involved. A source later told TMZ that Kendall is "just not that into him" and that they were just friends.

Blake Griffin

Kendall and Blake started dating in mid-2017, but insiders claim the relationship was pretty rocky. The ill-fated couple went on a break later that same year – which possibly had to do with the fact that Blake was getting sued by his ex-girlfriend for palimony – and they later broke up for good in May 2018.

Ben Simmons

The pair were spotted "cuddling" in July 2018 and a month later, they went on holiday together with Khloe Kardashian and her then-boyfriend, and fellow NBA player, Tristan Thompson. Kendall later broke things off and briefly started seeing Anwar Hadid (Gigi and Bella's brother), but was spotted ringing in the New Year with the Aussie athlete earlier this year.

Kyle Kuzma

Although Kendall and Kyle were pictured celebrating the Fourth of July holiday on a yacht together last year, they may not have been romantically involved. Despite their seemingly romantic hook-up, at the time insiders claimed the pair were just close friends.
