Unlikely Duo: Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner

If you’re like us and you love the deets on all the latest celeb romances, you’ve surely been keeping up with the Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny saga that’s been unfolding all year. Our girl Kendall is no stranger to the spotlight, and she’s been seen on the arm of some pretty high-flying hotties, so what makes this dynamic duo the topic of Sunday brunch gossip? 

We’re definitely not saying opposites don’t attract — hello, best romance novel trope ever — but there’s something totally unlikely about this romance. And we love it! Dive deep into what makes the Bad Bunny and Kendall J romance all the rage this year and what we can expect to see from their Instagram stories and paparazzi pics in the future. 

At a Glance

Both Kendall and Bad Bunny have their own impressive stories and careers, as well as a long list of broken hearts in their wake. Maybe that’s what makes them work so well together, or maybe it’s just because water signs are meant to mix. Whatever it may be, the more we know about them each on their own, the easier it is to understand what sets this exciting — if unlikely — romance apart from their love stories of the past. 

Bad Bunny

Bad Bunny, or Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, does a little of everything in pop culture. He’s a rapper, singer, songwriter, and producer — you know, the whole Empire — and he incorporates a lot of his Puerto Rican heritage to inspire his music. In fact, he’s even known as the “King of Latin Trap.” He even wrestles on occasion, because who doesn’t love a guy that can do it all? 

Bad Bunny first started showing up on the scene in 2016 with his song “Diles,” and then really broke into the industry when he collaborated with Cardi B in 2018. Since then, he’s been listed on the Billboard 200 chart several times and won Grammy Awards, Latin Grammy Awards, and Billboard Music Awards. He was even crowned Artist of the Year at the 2022 Apple Music Awards. 

Bad Bunny is known for his music and his pioneering new Latin sounds, but he’s also been involved in activism work and sports. Before Kendall, he was in a relationship with Gabriela Berlingeri, which lasted from 2017 to 2022. During that time, she became the first Latina photographer to be showcased on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine when Bad Bunny was featured in the May 2020 issue. 

Bad Bunny’s definitely in the public eye, for art, sports, and even for activism work, but it’s definitely his growing relationship with Kendall that has the celeb gossip fans all abuzz. 

Kendall Jenner

Whether you grew up watching Keeping Up with the Kardashians or you came into the world of Kardashian and Jenner drama later on, you’ve definitely heard of Kendall Jenner. Like our boy BB, she’s done a lot of everything, starting with her modeling and reality television careers and including impressive business moves that reach worldwide. 

Today, she’s considered a global supermodel and has appeared on everything from print ads to catwalks to editorial shoots for top brands. And, of course, she has totally rocked the Met Gala red carpet. 

Kendall has been in the public eye since she was a kid. In fact, she was just eleven years old when KUWTK launched. Her socialite brand is global, and she recently launched a new line of tequila products, 818 Tequila. And with all that time in the Los Angeles spotlight, Kendall has crossed paths with some pretty big names in both business and love. 

Some of the names that have been romantically linked to Kendall include Joe Jonas, A$AP Rocky, and NBA player Blake Griffin. She dated NBA player Devin Booker for more than two years, breaking up in the fall of 2022. 

There’s no doubt that Kendall has had a lifetime of excitement and romance, and it seems like her relationship with the totally hot Bad Bunny is not to be missed. 

Relationship Timeline

Both Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner are hotshot powerhouses all on their own, but what happens when the two of them start stepping out together? Given that they’ve been captured on film since the early months of this year, it seems like this is more than a flash-in-the-pan romance for either of these hot stars. We’ve got your closer look at just what this relationship means for our faves and when they started hitting all those relationship milestones. 

First Looks

In early February of 2023, Bad Bunny moved to Los Angeles, and he and Kendall were introduced by mutual friends. Later that month, Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner were caught on camera following a double date with Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber in Beverly Hills, California. 

Inside sources at the time confirmed that the two had been casually hanging out and were quoted comparing Bad Bunny to the guys Kendall had dated in the past, who were very different. 

Kissing Cuties 

About a month later, the two were spotted on a date night in West Hollywood and caught on camera. And when we say caught, we mean caught. We respect the PDA game, for sure. A few more dates, including a horseback riding fairytale romance, followed, bringing their new relationship into the early spring. 

Going (Almost Official) at Coachella

Kendall is a Coachella queen, and it was no surprise when the duo made an appearance at the iconic music festival. Bad Bunny performed, and the two were seen kissing and cuddling, both in-person and online. In fact, Bad Bunny almost spilled the tea when he went live on Instagram, and Kendall could be heard singing in the background. 

Music and Dinner Dates — Then Galas 

Through the rest of April, they’re spotted on classic dates, including dinner in New York City and concerts in L.A. And, of course, Kendall’s not one to miss the Met Gala. They showed up to the event separately and weren’t spotted together on the red carpet — though we may have all just had eyes for Kendall’s killer sequin bodysuit. 

But after the gala drew to a close, Kendall and Bad Bunny were spotted together on the way to the after-party. And she rocked an amazing outfit for that, too. Very ‘90s high-fashion inspired. 

Out Together

By mid-May, Kendall and Bad Bunny are ready to appear together in public for the first time, and they do just that courtside at a Lakers Playoff game. They’re not afraid to sit close and get cozy, and Kendall delivers a total look with a pair of knee-high stiletto boots. It isn’t until more than a month later, in late June, that they start making comments — or no comments — about their relationship with the press. By mid-July, it’s acknowledged that they’re becoming “more serious,” and they’re spotted having all kinds of sexy dinner dates. 

Our Kind of Music

As summer draws to a close, there’s no denying that the two have it bad. In mid-August, they’re captured kissing and dancing at a Drake Concert in Los Angeles, and the video is shared on TikTok. Later that month, Bad Bunny posts an oh-so-cute glimpse into their private life, and by the end of August, he’s seen wearing a necklace with a “K” on it. 

September Romance

All that brings us up to September. As the cozy days start and cuffing season is right around the corner, BB and KJ seem to have this romance on lock. Bad Bunny is officially speaking out about balancing his private and public life and asking for his fans to respect his journey and his privacy. Just a few days later, he’s spotted in New York stepping out with Kendall. 

What’s Next? 

We never really know what’s going on in the lives of the rich and famous, but that doesn’t mean we’re not curious — especially when two unlikely hotties get together right before our very eyes. But while Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner may seem unexpected, they’ve clearly been making it work. 

For more than half a year, the two have been seen out and about, dancing, kissing, and living that high life, and they seem to be figuring out just how to do the new relationship dance while the whole wide world is watching. 

All we can say is we have faith in the unlikely and unexpected, and we’re rooting for the duo to make the love last. We say cheers to the unexpected — we can’t wait to see what Bad Bunny and Kendall get up to next.
