After swooning over that Bad Bunny and Taylor Swift moment at the Grammy's 2023, you might very well find yourself wondering who Bad Bunny's girlfriend is, especially after he was recently spotted locking lips with a certain model and 818 tequila mogul. Here's what we know about his current GF, plus the scoop on his past relationship...

It's safe to say, there has been a lot of speculation around Bad Bunny's (real name Benito Ocasio) relationship status as of late, with fans going wild for reports that Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner are now an item, following his split from his long-term girlfriend, Gabriela Berlingeri. 

That being said, we still don't have a lot of intel on when exactly Benito and Gabriela's relationship even ended in the first place, with breakup speculation swirling around their relationship for months prior to this latest romance development...

So, for anyone very invested in Bad Bunny's girlfriend situation—are Benito and Kenny our newest celebrity couple? Here's everything we've sussed out about his love life and dating history...

Who is Bad Bunny's girlfriend 2023?

The question we all need to know—does Bad Bunny have a girlfriend right now or is he single? 

The answer to this one is perhaps up for debate, as the singer is now being linked to model Kendall Jenner after an anonymous gossip account, Deuxmoix (opens in new tab) posted a blind item on February 16, 2023, claiming the pair were seen making out at an LA Club. Three days later, E News! (opens in new tab) then reported that Kendall and Benito were spotted leaving the same restaurant on February 19, alongside Kenny's close friends, Hailey and Justin Bieber.

There's since been further confirmation that Kenny and Benito are something of an item after the pair were photographed on March 8, embracing—and potentially sharing a kiss (as per TMZ (opens in new tab)), though you can't actually see their faces in the pic!

This new romantic twist has understandably thrown some fans for a loop, with many presuming he was still with his long-term girlfriend Gabriela Berlingeri—with eagle-eyed fans thinking they spotted a new tattoo of her eyes on Benito's forearm. The only other ink he has is a matching couple tattoo with Gabriela of a palm tree.

Are Bad Bunny and Gabriela still together?

As far as we can tell—what with all these Kendall Jenner dating rumors—Bad Bunny and Gabriela are no longer together. 

The couple has been fuelling split rumors for some time, even before DeuxMoi spilled the tea on those romance rumors between Kendall and Bad Bunny. Benito and Gabriela reportedly first started dating in 2017 and were going strong for five years, even sharing that they'd adopted a puppy together in February 2022.

However, from that point on things became a little hazy—with videos circulating in August 2022 of Bad Bunny kissing another woman during the first leg of his World’s Hottest Tour. Some fans took this as a heart-shattering sign that they had split, with others theorizing that they were actually in an open relationship, as per Cosmopolitan (opens in new tab).

In January 2023, Benito was also spotted with a mystery blonde courtside at a LA Lakers game, who, according to TikTok, is apparently the very same fan who joined him onstage at one of his shows in Arizona last year.

And as mentioned, as of February 16, 2023, there's now a ton of speculation that he's now dating Kendall Jenner.

As of yet, neither Benito nor Gabriela have commented on their split and there's also been no official confirmation that Benito and Kendall are really a thing either, bar those kissing pictures. So for now, your guess is as good as ours when it comes to Bad Bunny's girlfriend situation...
