[Blind Gossip] In case you were wondering, that famous girl’s break up with her athlete boyfriend wasn’t about a love at all. It was about business!
They “broke up” because he told her that he was moving and wasn’t going to be available to do photo ops unless she wanted to travel. She’s not going to travel thousands of miles every couple of weeks to keep up a fake relationship.
There wasn’t some big fight or break up. They are still friends, but then again, that’s all they ever were. The boyfriend angle was just for publicity. They will still meet up for dinner or whatever once every couple of months just to get people buzzing that they might be back together.
Her family will find her someone famous closer to home (athlete, musician) with better availability for photo ops. Having a famous boyfriend enhances her brand.

[Optional] How long will it take for her to be photographed with another “boyfriend”?
Girl: Kendall Jenner
Athlete: Blake Griffin
As your friends at BlindGossip.com told you in January, the “relationship” between Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin was going to end due to Griffin’s being traded from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons.
When you depend on personal publicity and photo ops for a living, a model and reality star who lives in Los Angeles simply can not justify a “beau” who lives in Detroit. New York, maybe. Detroit, no.
So, here we are a few weeks later, it’s time to slow roll the breakup announcement. It’s being termed a “slow down” or a “fizzle out” or a “dead end” by various media sources.
Whatever. Blind Gossip told you exactly what this is a month ago: Simply the end of a business arrangement!
Kendall Jenner and Blake Griffin’s romance appears to have hit a dead end.
Approximately six months after the supermodel and basketball player first sparked romance rumors, multiple sources tell E! News the pair is pumping the brakes on their whirlwind fling.
One insider says Griffin’s trade from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons strained their relationship, saying, “Kendall and Blake talk and she has been to Detroit to see him, but the distance is a major factor. He will be back in L.A. for the summer and its possible they could heat up again. For now, they are still in contact and not ruling anything out.”
Meanwhile, Kendall (who was noticeably absent from New York Fashion Week) is prioritizing some time for herself. The source explains, “She really needed a break from the nonstop travel and work. She wants to just stay at home for awhile and chill out.”
A second source echoes that sentiment, adding, “Right now, it’s on and off and they still talk and see each other when their schedules allow it.”
Things between the Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star and NBA athlete has been cooling off for some time, with E! News previously reporting that their status was “never serious.”
“They were hanging out but both knew that it wasn’t going to be a long-term exclusive relationship,” our source shared at the time. “They are still in contact and hangout here and there when they are both in town because they truly have a lot of fun together. Kendall always says that Blake makes her laugh and that’s why she loves being around him.”
On to the next one, Kenny!
There’s not going to be any animosity in their breakup… because there was never actually any romance! Therefore, they can always hang out together in the future and play it as if they are “rekindling” their “relationship” when they want a little publicity.
It will be interesting to see who is selected as Kendall Jenner’s next “beau.” Of course, he will be famous – because that’s what “enhances the brand” – and he will be local.
Congrats to Cheetaskin for being first with the correct response!
