While we didn't get a Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny Met Gala couple debut, with the pair ascending the famous steps together, we did spot a few other very interesting moments—here's what went down...

If you've been on TikTok any time in the last few months, you'll have no doubt spotted those viral Bad Bunny girlfriend rumors, that point to the La Jumpa singer being in a relationship with model, Kendall Jenner—from those horseriding pics to that Gabriela Berlingeri, Bad Bunny and Kendall Coachella drama. 

While neither party has officially confirmed the dating rumors, the evidence is certainly stacking up, especially after they were spotted leaving the Met Gala 2023 together, alongside Kendall's sisters, Kim and Kylie and getting cozy at the after-party...

Kendall Jenner and Bad Bunny at the Met Gala 2023

Rumors first started swirling that Kendall and Bad Bunny were dating back in February 2023, after gossip account, DeuxMoi shared a blind item that the pair had been spotted kissing in a club. Since then, the sightings have just kept on coming, from dinner dates with Hailey and Justin Bieber to the pair partying together at Coachella.

And while there were murmurings that perhaps Kendall and Bad Bunny (real name Benito Ocasio) would attend the event together, the pair went separately with Kendall sporting a black and white sparkling Marc Jacobs fit and Bad Bunny opting for an all-white Jacquemus suit, complete with an eight meter long (as per Vogue), floral train.

Alas, the pair didn't pose with each other on the Met steps, but they were spotted catching up once inside the museum...

Plus, following the event they actually left together, arriving back at their hotel in the same car as Kendall's sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner. So clearly, the family approves of Kenny's alleged beau...

In the video making the rounds on TikTok, Kim exits the car, followed by Kylie and then Kendall, with Benito in tow. This marks the first time Kendall has been spotted with a potential love interest at the Met Gala festivities, despite attending the iconic event twice while dating NBA star Devin Booker.

After the brief sighting, the pair were also spotted leaving the hotel together (this time without Kim and Kylie) having done a quick outfit change for the Met Gala after-party—and we just want to take a moment for Kendall's sheer dress/leotard and thong moment.

Hours later, videos also began circulating online of the pair dancing together from inside the star-studded Met after-party, with Kendall wrapping her arm around Benito's neck as they swayed to the music.

As for where Kendall and Bad Bunny actually stand, the jury's still out—but after these latest Met Gala sightings it's pretty evident that there's still something going on...
