It is being reported that the (northern) summer romance between model Kendall Jenner and Australian basketballer Ben Simmons has "cooled off".
While neither party have confirmed the split and are still following each other on Instagram (the modern day equivalent of putting on a united front), E! are claiming that the relationship "has run its course" and that Kim Kardashian West's younger, half-sister, 22, "has been spending time with other people".
Those "other people" include fellow top models' Gigi and Bella Hadid's younger brother Anwar Hadid, 19, who she was spotted kissing (or as TMZ put it, "sucking face") at a party in New York in June while she was seeing Simmons, but they were not official at the time, so no harm done. (Welcome to the world of millennial dating.)
Jenner, Bella and Anwar (who was in Sydney just three weeks ago walking in the David Jones spring summer 2018 show) were spotted on Friday hanging out at the Malibu Chili Cook-Off with ET sharing pictures of Jenner and Anwar smiling as they went down the carnival slide together.
The alleged split is being reported on some local Philadelphia news sites as a relief as they feared the Melbourne-born, Newcastle-reared 76ers player, 21, would be struck down by the "Kardashian curse", a well worn-out urban myth.
The KarJenners have a soft spot for sportsmen, in particular NBA players, but it has been claimed that when a sports figure gets romantic with one of the pouty sisters their professional game takes a nosedive.
Some say they get distracted by the circus that follows the famous family around, others believe it's a hex, but no one seems to hold the men responsible for their own performance.
Jenner seems to have done no harm to Simmons' career with the son of former Newcastle Falcons forward Dave Simmons winning the prestigious Rookie of the Year in June.
He joins a "who's who" of the greats of the game with past winners of the coveted prize including Michael Jordan, Larry Bird, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.
Australian-born Kyrie Irving also won the award in 2012.
