Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons have reportedly ended their relationship.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was first linked to the Australian Philadelphia 76ers basketball player last March, and confirmed their romance in February. Things appeared to be going well between Kendall and Ben, with the model even speaking about potential plans to wed the sportsman in an interview with Vogue Australia earlier this month.

But despite the ill-timed release of the June magazine, sources close to Kendall, 23, told the New York Post’s Page Six that her romance with Ben has come to an end.

According to the outlet, the pair’s relationship ended “last week”, with another insider confirming to Page Six that the pair have “broken up”.

However, another source suggested to People.com that the couple’s split could be more temporary.

“They’re on a break,” the insider explained. “The relationship ran its course. She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode.”

Ben, 22, is also apparently back on the market, and was seen partying with friends at Kuro at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas celebrating a pal’s birthday. Among his entourage was a “tall, super-sexy brunette”, Page Six added.

The same evening, Kendall shared some cryptic posts to her Instagram Stories, including the Tyler, the Creator song I Don’t Love You Anymore. She later posted the lyrics to the rapper’s tune Puppet, with lines including: “I wanna call you and talk.”

In her interview with Vogue Australia, Kendall was asked if she was planning to settle down and marry Ben, to which she replied: “Definitely not now, but maybe one day. I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term.”
