Kendall Jenner and Devin Booker road trip to Sedona, internet freaks out

Apr 29, 2020, 9:55 AM

Model and tabloid darling Kendall Jenner decided to pop in to Arizona and take a road trip to Sedona with Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker, according to TMZ. All those words forming a sentence got the Hollywood gossip and NBA interwebs buzzin’.

“Kendall and friends have a small social circle amongst the group, who have been following the same social distancing and physical distancing guidelines. Devin is a friend and is part of the small group,” a source told TMZ, adding the two are not dating but are only friends.

“They took a road trip for some much-needed air.”

That is all well and good.

TMZ posted a video of Booker and Jenner hustling into his Maybach at a rest stop near Sedona as people recognized them. TMZ’s sources emphasized the two kept their distance from others, and it should be mentioned that road tripping is not breaking the state of Arizona’s rules amid the COVID-19 threat.

Here’s what is not good, in case you didn’t know: Kendall Jenner, sister Kylie, and step-siblings Khloe, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian have a certain reputation for dating NBA players.

One such player, James Harden, admitted the attention bothered him as he was dating Khloe. Sports Illustrated wrote that Harden considered it the worst year of his life.

Anyway, drama tends to follow, and that appeared Wednesday morning after TMZ’s article was posted. Booker’s supposed ex-girlfriend, Jordyn Woods, posted a few trash can emojis before deleting it.

Anyway, basketball fans were hoping Booker had fun in Sedona while staying safe from the coronavirus.

Others were hoping this isn’t a harbinger of bad things to come in his basketball career.
