While the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has adamantly denied any romance between her and The Bachelor alum, Kris and Ben have posed for multiple photos together in the past few months and seem to be better “friends” than ever, even taking vacations together.
In a picture taken three months ago, after Kris and longtime hubby Bruce Jenner had been living apart but before they had announced their official separation, the reality TV mama looked cozy with Ben and pals on a vacation in Mexico at Girls Gone Wild founder Joe Francis’s beach house.
“Pool day w/ Litibu this weekend @casaaramara w/ @realjoefrancis @krisjenner @cicibussey @rondakamihira @benflajnik. Love you guys!” Joe’s girlfriend, model Abby Lauren Wilson wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the group splashing around in the pool.
In the photo, a bikini-clad Kris smiles alongside Ben, the rest of the group, and sort of inexplicably, a sea lion.
It’s hard not to wonder about the nature of this duo’s relationship considering their rapidly-developing friendship, but Ben remains insistent that the two are not dating — and his annoyance with denying rumors is apparently growing.
“Ben is telling friends it’s 100 percent not true. He’s very agitated about the whole thing,” a source close to Ben told Wetpaint Entertainment exclusively. “It’s at the point where he’s not even laughing about it anymore — he’s really upset.”
