Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker had a brief stint dating supermodel Kendall Jenner. The two were together for about two years before the relationship came to an end. Fans trolled the Suns’ shooting guard after the breakup as Kendall Jenner moved on seemingly quickly. Over the past few weeks, rumors have been circulating that Jenner is now romantically involved with Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny. Booker recently threw shade at Bad Bunny after the rapper allegedly dissed the 3x NBA All-Star in his new song.

Recently, Bad Bunny released a new song titled, ‘Coco Chanel.’ While the song is a hit among fans, Bunny may have sneaked in some subliminal disses on the Phoenix Suns star over his failed relationship with Kendall Jenner.

While the song ‘Coco Chanel’ features the usual groovy beats associated with most Bad Bunny songs, the 3x Grammy award winner took his chance to seemingly take a shot at the Suns guard. The translation of the lyrics from one of the verses is, “The Sun shines warmer in Puerto Rico than Phoenix.”

The Puerto Rican rapper even threw in a Luka Doncic stepback jumper reference. Bad Bunny may have been referring to the Dallas Mavericks‘ blowout win in game 7 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Suns last year.

Following this, Booker made sure he let Bad Bunny his feelings known as he replied to a post on Instagram. Booker dropped a comment saying, “He worried about another MAN again.” However, the comment has now been deleted.

Fans are baffled by the supposed beef between Devin Booker and Bad Bunny. One fan commented, “Wasn’t he on stage kissing a man? So confused.” Referring to the artist’s performance at VMA where he was seen kissing a backup dancer. 

While another fan dropped a comment saying, “That man been with for a hot second and already making diss songs lol is that the curse everyone been talking about lol.”

Here are a few reactions from Twitter.

The fans quickly reacted as some made fun of Bad Bunny and Booker beefing with each other, while others trolled Kendall Jenner.

The beef could derail Phoenix’s title charge

While there is no official news on Bad Bunny and Kendall Jenner dating, these lyrics may have cemented that take. As Bunny took shots at Booker through his new song, the Phoenix Suns’ star wasn’t far behind.

While Booker and Jenner split on good terms, this song may change that as Booker doesn’t seem content listening to songs dissing him. With the Playoffs around the corner, the Suns would want Booker’s complete focus on winning the championship. With Kevin Durant out with an injury, the onus is on Booker to lead the team into the Playoffs in a good position.
