Romance

Kendall Jenner has always been mysteriously private about her dating life, despite the fact that her famous family have cameras filming them 24/7 for Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Most recently, the model was dating NBA player Ben Simmons until May of this year after 12 months of dating.

A meme has now surfaced on the internet mocking her seeming appreciation for basketball players, and it did NOT go down well…

A Twitter account posted a meme of the "Starting five of NBA players" Kendall was rumoured to have dated, commenting: "This is a playoff team LMAO." Highly mature content altogether.

The image featured Jordan Clarkson from the Cleveland Cavaliers, D’Angelo Russell of Golden State Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons, LA Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma and Detroit Pistons’ Blake Griffin.

You might say that the Kardashian-Jenner wasn't here for the joke, clapping back; "2 out of 5 accurate, thanks". Go off, sis.

The Victoria's Secret model was referring to Ben Simmons and Blake Griffin, who she was previously seen with. Kendall rarely discloses her relationships in public, but she didn't let this joke pass her by.

Kendall allegedly dated Blake back in 2017, but the distance caused the relationship to fizzle out when he moved to the Detroit Pistons. She confirmed her romance with Ben Simmons on the Ellen DeGeneres show;

"So obviously you’re dating this guy who’s on the 76ers. How long have you been dating him?", Ellen asked. Kendall replied: "For a bit now."

The pair split in May, with a source close to People claiming that the relationship had "ran it's course. She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode."

Kendall opened up about why she protects her love life to Vogue Australia in May:

"For me, a lot of things are very special and very sacred, like my friends and relationships, and I personally think that bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier.

She added; "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," she continued.

"A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally"

The reality TV star takes privacy seriously; "Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair."

Ariana Grande has had a whirlwind few years, and is currently in the midst of her most successful career chapter to date following massive trauma in her personal life.

The 26-year-old has opened up to Vogue magazine about her five-month relationship with SNL comic Pete Davidson and how she dealt with the grief of losing ex-boyfriend Mac Miller.

The rapper died of an overdose in September 2018, and the Thank U, Next singer later began dating Davidson. Drama ensued after the couple got engaged after just one month of dating, and later broke up.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Vogue (@voguemagazine) on

Grande described her romance with the comedian as “insane” and “highly unrealistic”, but praised him as “an amazing distraction” in the wake of her breakup with Miller.

“It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic,” she said, adding: “I loved him, and I didn’t know him. I’m like an infant when it comes to real life and this old soul, been-around-the-block-a-million-times artist. I still don’t trust myself with the life stuff.”

The young musician described the the loss of Miller as “pretty all-consuming”.

“By no means was what we had perfect,” she said of their two-year-long relationship, “but, like, f***. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Mac Miller (@macmillerdivine) on

She added; "I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming… less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.”

Grande recently said her relationship with Miller was “toxic” after a fan harshly criticised her for “dumping him for another dude”.

“How absurd that you minimise female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them,” she replied on Twitter, claiming the song Cinderella on his last album was about her.

“I am not a babysitter or a mother and no woman should feel that they need to be,” Grande continued, emphasising that she had “tried to support his sobriety” for many years.

Grande told Vogue: “People don’t see any of the real stuff that happens, so they are loud about what they think happened. They didn’t see the years of work and fighting and trying, or the love and exhaustion.”

The singer said that her tweet “came from a place of complete defeat”; “You have no idea so you’re not allowed to pull that card, because you don’t f***ing know,” she continued. “That’s where that came from.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Mac Miller (@macmillerdivine) on

Ariana also explained that she doesn't remember the months after Miller's death "because I was so drunk" and "sad", understandably.

"You have no idea how many times I warned him that that would happen and fought that fight, for how many years of our friendship, of our relationship."

For Ariana, Thank U, Next was also a time of "self-realisation" about being "boo'd up my entire adult life": "It was this scary moment of 'Wow, you have to face all this stuff now. No more distractions."

Ex-Love Island star Joe Garratt has sent the internet into a frenzy after teasing a return to the Spanish villa via his Instagram stories.

The star was coupled up with Lucie Donlan but was voted off the show last week alongside Elma Pazar, which cut their romance short and left Lucie single.

The sandwich seller headed back to the UK, but is on his way BACK to Majorca after sharing a mysterious Instagram photo.

Image: Instagram @josephgarratt

The photo shows an airport screen with the word 'Palma' alongside a palm tree and love heart emoji. It's definitely a hint if we've ever seen one. The second image showed him touching down in Palma de Mallorca.

His news comes just as Casa Amor is kicking off, with 12 new singletons set to join the show in a rival villa.

Joe previously revealed that he would wait for surfer chick Lucie on the outside, but she's partnered up with fellow single contestant Anton at the moment.

After he was voted off by the public, he told The Sun; “I would love to get more time with Lucy in there. It is such an amazing experience and when you’re doing it with someone you care about its just perfect.

“I would never rule out the possibility of going back in. I met somebody who I fell for so I have already won that in that sense. I would love to go back in and see her."

He added: “I think that would be really nice and I think she would love that.”

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Joe Garratt (@josephgarratt) on

Would Lucie be happy to see her former couple partner, who was besotted with her? Or is she moving on?

She caused a stir in the villa this week after saying "Never say never" to a future romance with Tommy. Molly-Mae has since asked for boundaries to be set on their friendship, which Lucie definitely isn't pleased about.

Lucie has often mentioned that she's hoping the surfer dude of her dreams will walk through the door, which doesn't sound positive for city boy Joe. Tune in tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media for updates.

Dua Lipa is reportedly dating model Anwar Hadid after breaking up with her long-term on-again-off-again boyfriend, Isaac Carew.

The New Rules singer has apparently been spending time with the younger brother of Gigi and Bella Hadid in Los Angeles following her split from the chef.

According to Glamour UK, Lipa attended Hadid’s birthday party in Malibu last week, where they were spotted “cosying up” to one other.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dua Lipa (@dualipa) on

Sources have said Lipa was pictured "by Hadid's side" on Instagram stories as his guests sang 'Happy Birthday' to him. Lipa and Gigi are meant to be close friends, which could explain the link to Anwar.

The Sun has also claimed that Lipa and Hadid have gone on a “string of dates"'; “Dua and Isaac have a lot of history and he holds a special place in her heart,” an insider told the tabloid.

“But she has been in Los Angeles almost every day since they split again and she has been able to spend time with Anwar, who she really gets on with. They are a lot closer in age and it’s just been fun," the source added.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Anwar hadid (@anwar_hadid8) on

"It’s a confusing time for both Dua and Isaac but she is just going with the flow and doing what feels right.”

Carew dated Lipa between 2013 and 2017, but the pair called time on their romance. Dua then dated Paul Klein, the lead singer of band LANY, but rekindled her relationship with Carew last year and attended the Met Gala with him in May.

“Dua and Isaac have really struggled to see each other since getting back together,” a source told The Sun. “They wanted to make things work and things were great between them for a while but she is just getting busier and busier.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Dua Lipa (@dualipa) on

“She is gearing up to release new music and has basically been performing across the world non-stop for the past three years so it’s been tough. It’s been a difficult decision but ultimately they haven’t been able to make things work"

Hadid and Lipa could be just friends, of course, but boy would they make a damn handsome couple.

Tonight's Love Island looks set to be a good one and we cannot wait.

In a twist, the couple had to vote for who they thought was the least compatible….and they chose Joe and Lucie and Elma and Anton. 

No big surprises there, right?

However, the public has the power now to kick out their least two favourite Islanders.

Thank f*ck.

Ok, so I know Lucie isn't Miss Innocent and whispering with a guy (Tommy) she was in a love triangle with isn't the nicest thing in the world to do, but she needs to get away from Joe.

Sandwich man Joe started out as alright, few red flags of jealousy and possessiveness…but the last few days, his behaviour is downright not ok.

He's making Lucie feel bad for not being a girlie girl and told her she needs to spend more time with the girls in the villa.

He 's said that her friendship with Tommy is ''weird'' because he's a guy and it's kinda gaslighting.

So bye Joe.

So – Elma and Anton.

Anton's video when he came in had me thinking – Oh ffs, here's an arrogant shit' but he's such a sweetheart. 

He's been pied so many times and is still smiling.

He told Molly-Mae how it was, hugged Anna even though he had to recouple with a romantic partner, is funny and just seems like a good guy.

He's not everyone's cup of tea but he's not a d*ckhead, that's for sure.

I initially thought Elma was ok and she and Anton seemed to make sense…but her behaviour the minute (could be just sneaky editing) after Anton chose her, she went cold.

I was like – wtf Elma?

Anton is a CUTIE – I know, I know, keeping her options open…I just feel like she's not and never has been into Anton and I'm not a fan.

So for me, it's an easy choice…Joe and Elma should get the boot.

We'll see how Lucie acts without Joe and as for Anton, throw someone in there who fancies the poor lad, will you?

I was seventeen the first time I fell in love. 

It was with one of my childhood friends and we had what I now know was chemistry (at the time he was just constantly getting under my skin).

But when we started going out, everything clicked into place.

We fell into an all-consuming type of love, the only type you can have when you're 17.

It was the messaging under the covers at night/hungry kisses in my hall on a school night/naive and hormone-fuelled kinda thing.

Being a teenager in general, your world is small and that means that everything is heightened.

This person is suddenly your whole life and because it's the first time you're having these feelings…it's intense. 

Things like jealousy rear their ugly head for the first time and this can cause dizzying heights and crashing lows.

When the inevitable heartbreak came, we were nineteen.

My whole world blurred and temporarily nothing seemed to make sense.

Being with your first love is a magical time and one that many of us just can't seem to let go of – but why?

Image result for the notebook gifs

Why do we have this bond?

So, this is the science bit.

When two people first meet, their bodies release a stress hormone called norepinephrine.

This is what makes you have the butterflies in your stomach, heart pounding away in your chest, the whole works. 

Researchers at Arizona State University College also found this cool thing – the hormone makes events burn into your memory.

You know the way you can remember specific kisses or conversations you had but what happened the day before is a blur?

They discovered a link that causes these strong emotions to form a specific sensory experience. 

In other words, when you get around that person again, their presence causes those old memories and initial feelings to come flooding back.

It's not that you don't forget about them; when you see them again, those old feelings of first love can return.

So it looks like first love is the deepest – in a literal sense as it's carved out what you think love should look like.

We never learn as much from a relationship as we do from our first serious one and because of that, they will never fully leave us. 

In the words of writer Daphne du Maurier, ''I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say."

The merry-go-round of reality tv couples continues.

The latest pair to hook up is Zara McDermott and Sam Thompson, of Love Island and Made in Chelsea fame. 

They have been doing the 2019 version of flirting – commenting on each other's Instagram pictures.

But then they were pictured holding hands in London and now their reps have confirmed that they are in fact, dating. 

 The pair furled speculation they were dating after they pictured together in a social media post on May 26

While Sam might be a bit of an eejit, he's a harmless one and we're delighted for Zara after being messed around by Adam Collard. 

It seems things are going from strength to strength for the couple as Zara commented ''“I [love] U'' under a shirtless snap of Sam. 

The MIC star was previously in a long-term relationship with co-star Tiffany Watson and he has since said it ended because he was ''immature.''

The 22-year-old told The Sun, ''He’s a lot older than me. I feel really annoyed now because it’s awkward.I sing and play the piano and he invited me to watch The Voice to see how it works as I want to get into all of that. He was lovely to me and that’s all I can say.”

We think they look kinda good together – crack on, we say.

The couple have dated before – for a year before she went on Love Island last summer – and people think he's a bit fame-hungry now that Dani's a bit of a nation's sweetheart.

According to The Sun, ''Sammy has the gift of the gab – he does well at work and makes good money. The only reason he’s reconnected with Dani is that she has a lot going for her at the moment – she has money, a clothing range and endorsement deals, he will feel like he’s hit the jackpot.''

Hmmm, we're not sure we like the sound of him but sure look, she looks happy so who are to judge?

It's the good news all of us Derry Girls fans( and let's be honest, who isn't?) have been waiting for.

There were suggestions of attraction between Erin and James in the first two seasons – and obviously *SPOILER* the finale of season 2 when they went to the school dance together. 

I first thought that she secretly harboured feelings for him when she was having NONE of him losing his virginity to the Russian exchange student.

That's when I was like ehhh, she's repressing a few auld feelings there.

And now Saoirse-Monica Jcakson, who palys Erin, revealed, ''I think there's definitely something to be said that at 16 you can be friends with a boy but that's definitely down to Lisa [McGee] so we'll have to see how it goes."

Nicola Coughlan, who plays Clare, then said, ''Ooooh, Jerin! Jerin!"

Lisa MGee, creator of Derry Girls, previously told Radio Times, ''I think there might be. I've always thought James likes her, but I think he maybe doesn’t even understand that yet, and I don't know when that'll, it might happen when they're much older, so it might not actually happen in our show.''

She continued, ''But I think the potential is there, it's something I'm interested in seeing – I might toy with it if we do another season.''

She added, ''I think Erin doesn't realise that she might like him until someone else wants him, that sort of thing. So, yeah, it might be interesting to explore that a bit more, because they're great together."

This is the best news ever – it's so obviously they fancy the arses off each other – now we just have to wait until season three to see it all play out.

It seems like Kaz Crossley has officially moved on from her Love Island romance with Josh Denzel, with ANOTHER former Love Island-er; Theo Campbell.

They seem to stick to their pack, this lot. Kaz pretty much confirmed the rumours swirling about her romance with Campbell on a PDA-filled night out.

The couple couldn't keep their hands off each other at Georgia Harrisson's fitness clothing launch last night in London, and it looks like they've finally gone public.

Kaz wore a miniscule orange crop top and leather-look trousers, and partied the night away with fellow Love Island alumni Montana Brown and Ex On The Beach stars Nicole Bass and Zahida Allen.

Theo appeared on the ITV show back in 2017, and seemed smitten with Crossley. He even put her on his Instagram Story (GASP).

OK! online report that the pair are seeing each other, but aren’t exclusive yet; “Theo and Kaz are dating, but they’re in the early days of a relationship,” the insider told the website.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by (@theo_campbell91) on

“They’re seeing how things go and taking it day by day. They’re having fun and getting to know each other," the source continued.

“It’s not exclusive but they like each other’s company. However, with so many commitments like sponsorship deals and TV shows, they don’t have a lot of time together. So for the time being, they’re having a bit of fun.” Good for them.

The pair met while filming a reality show in Thailand in March, and all those Insta snaps send the rumour mill flying.

While Theo has been single since Love Island apparently, Kaz confirmed her split from Josh Denzel in January with a candid Instagram snap;

Time will tell whether they'll last long or if it's just a pre-summer fling. You never know with this group, but it's keeping us entertained so we can't complain…

Can someone send us to Thailand so we can meet an attractive man while getting paid, please? Cheers.

Adam Collard is nothing but a distant memory for Zara McDermott now.

The Love Island star is now reportedly in a blossoming romance with none other than Olly Murs.

The duo has been flirting on each others Instagrams (how very 2019) and have now taken things up a notch since meeting on a night out in March.

According to The Sun, ''Olly is smitten with Zara and it’s not hard to see why. He tried to make out they’re just mates but there’s real chemistry between them.''

They continued, ''Now their romance is blossoming into a relationship. He treats her like a princess and is very complimentary about her. It takes a lot to get Olly’s attention but Zara has really turned his head.''

So it seems that the 34-year-old singer is really into Zara.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Olly Murs (@ollymurs) on

The source added, ''Their dates have been out of the public eye and it’s been nice for them to connect on a deeper level without any prying eyes. Olly’s mates are desperate for him to find someone to settle down with and Zara seems perfect for him.”

Olly has laughed off the rumours, saying, ''I just find it funny. That’s the world I live in in the dating world. If you like anyone’s photos you’re automatically dating them, it’s just crazy.''

He continued, ''I spoke to Zara after seeing her the other week in Sheesh with my mates. We were chatting about music because she loves singing. I’d seen on her Instagram that she likes to sing and as a fellow singer you go ‘wow, you’re a real singer.''

Hmmmm, sounds a bit more than friendly banter to us Olly – watch this space…
