If reports are to be believed, Kendall Jenner's relationship with NBA star Ben Simmons has hit a rough patch. The story was reported by “E!” which quoted the news from a reliable source. However, the tabloid was quick to add that the two are still texting one another, but there was a rider-Kendall was meeting and spending quality with a host of other people.

Is Anwar the new man in Kendall’s life?

While there is a big deal of ambiguity about Kendal’s relationship status, a significant new development has hit the social media. The model has been spotted spending time with Anwar Hadid….again.

It was sharp-eyed paparazzi who zeroed on the other people who were meeting the model and confirmed that the person was none other than Gigi and Bella Hadid's brother, Anwar. Kendall and Anwar were having a swell time at the annual Malibu Chili Cook-Off Fair with a group of friends

The couple was seen sliding together at the Chili Cook-Off Fair. Both took their positions at the top of the slide on Friday night in Malibu, California. They were part of a larger group of model friends who were enjoying their weekend at the fair, and it also included Anwar’s elder sister Bella.

Earlier in the month, the model had been seen vacationing with her boyfriend Ben Simmons and Sister Khloe Kardashian who was accompanied by her boyfriend Tristan Thompson in Puerto Vallarta. The model and her sister Kylie Jenner recently released the ‘Fall 2018 collection’ for their clothing line Kendall + Kylie.

First berated other models, then issues a clarification

Kendal was in the eye of a storm for her comments against her fellow models in her recent interview with the Love magazine.

She had berated her fellow models and said she would never do 30 shows a season of whatever the fu#@k the others do.

After a slew of condemnation across the industry, she took to Twitter to clarify that her statements were taken out of context. She quickly made amends by extolling the virtues of her fellow models and their “Tireless commitment.”

As for Kendall, who has not revealed publicly on the cheating allegations, she intends to keep what's going on with Ben behind closed doors.

The source tells E! News, "She would prefer to keep it low-key and out of the press."
