Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble have had their ups and downs -- like all relationships. But have they reached a new low?
A new report says that Corey can't even enjoy a night out with friends because he's so hung up on his alleged relationship troubles with the momager.
Are they headed for a break-up?
RadarOnline's source reports that Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble are teetering on the brink of breaking up.
According to this insider, Corey Gamble headed with some friends to Delilah, a restaurant in West Hollywood.
That's all fine and well, but apparently he spent the entire meal glued to his phone -- and was reportedly texting back and forth with Kris the whole time.
"He was sat with a huge group of people but barely spoke with any of them, unless someone directly came over to the table to say hello and shake his hand."
Sometimes, people just aren't in the mood to socialize but they go out anyway.
In this case, it doesn't look like Corey had any issue with the company that he was keeping -- as the source claims that he ignored them all equally.
"He was away from them all with his head down on his phone for hours, and later switched tables and did the same thing with another group of people."
The source continues their description.
"Corey looked lost and absolutely miserable all night."
That relies pretty heavily upon subjective assessments of someone else's mood ... but apparently this source knows him reasonably well.
"He's a naturally shy guy and although he's trying to throw himself into the clubbing scene while Kris decides what she wants."
Oh, that's sad to picture.
"It's clearly not working for him."
Sometimes, when you force yourself to go out to have a good time, you have a blast and forget what troubles you.
Other times, you can't stop thinking about your worries and can't engage with your friends. From the description, it sounds like this was the situation for Corey.
The world has heard rumors of other rough patches between the two.
In the Spring of 2017, there were whispers that Kris Jenner was "drunk and alone" on Easter.
Then, in October, came report that the momager had ditched Gamble in favor of Nigerian billionaire Christopher Cunningham.
Officially, though, the two of them seem to still be together.
But has their time together really run out?
But let's consider an alternative explanation.
Though Kris Jenner is 62 and Corey Gamble is 37, the couple has been together since 2014.
That's a long time for a Hollywood relationship, maybe ... but they are in Calabasas. Maybe the same rules don't apply.
More to the point, maybe what some perceive to be gloomy silence was actually just healthy communication between two people who love each other.
Maybe, just maybe, Corey was too distracted by Kris, his girlfriend, to pay much attention to or engage with his friends -- and various strangers.
That can be annoying to your friends when it happens, but it happens in all sorts of relationships.
We would always advise against jumping to conclusions when rumors say that a couple is headed towards marriage. (get excited, but don't assume that anything's set in stone).
Similarly, don't wait for some funerary procession as Kris and Corey lay their relationship to rest in a dramatic ceremony complete with wailing and perhaps one of those Viking funerals where they set a boat on fire.
Kris and Corey might break up tomorrow. Or they might breakup in a year. Or they might stay together until Corey dies of old age while Kris inexplicably looks younger than she does now.
We just don't know.
But we can all keep our eye on these two for hints of what's to come.
