Lewis Hamilton met Kendall Jenner and her current flame rapper Bad Bunny during the Lakers game a few weeks ago. This rendezvous took us down memory lane, where the Kar-Jenners have been very vocal supporters of the Mercedes driver, often being spotted with him and even turning up to watch his races. However, the twist is that years ago the owner of 818 Tequila turned up to support Hamilton, but in 2023 her boyfriend has chosen the opposition.

In 2015, Kendal with her other supermodel friends like Gigi Hadid arrived at the Monaco Grand Prix wearing Mercedes caps and supporting the world champion in very evident social media love. And though the duo was rumored to be dating, nothing ever cemented despite the supermodel’s momager manifesting it hard. However, fast forward to 2023, things have massively changed, especially with Bad Bunny allying with the Mercedes rivals, Red Bull.

A few days ago, Red Bull Racing posted a video of the Puerto Rican Rapper on a drive with Sergio Perez and grooving to the music, guaranteeing a good ride. While that may have seemed like a one-off occasion, the rapper made his way to the Red Bull garage in Jean Paul Gaultier’s head-turning outfit ahead of the Monaco GP and had a helmet fit with his car ride buddy Perez.

While the arrival of Jenner’s boyfriend at the paddock to mingle with arch-rivals sure does seem like a funny play of fate, it wasn’t too long ago her mother wanted Kendall to date her favorite Lewis.
