Kendall captioned it with a small white love heart that floats about Devin, and a tag of his Instagram handle is barely visible, hidden on top of his white T-shirt.

This is the first time Kendall has posted anything about him on social media, seemingly inspired by the romance of Valentine's Day to make her relationship public knowledge.

The couple were spotted together for the first time in April last year.

Despite being seen together numerous times going for meals and on shopping trips, they had not confirmed their romance until now.

Devin briefly dated Jordyn Woods in the past, the ex-best friend of Kendall's sister Kylie Jenner, whose friendship was ended when Jordyn kissed Khloe Kardashian's then-boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

The Kardashian-Jenners have a history of dating basketball players, and the sisters have even joked between themselves that they only go out with ball players or rappers.

Earlier this month, an insider told Entertainment Tonight that Kendall and Devin's relationship "works because they keep it simple".

The source said: "There aren't any huge expectations or crazy commitments on either side.They have gotten a lot closer, but Kendall's schedule is particularly super busy and Devin is very understanding of that."

Her confirmation of the romance comes after she faced accusations that she had Photoshopped her body in underwear snaps that saw her modelling Kim Kardashian's new SKIMS range.

The Victoria’s Secret model was accused of editing the pictures before posting them to her social media accounts.

Kendall later responded to a fan who had compared herself to the stunning star, tweeting: "i got 99 problems and looking like kendall jenner would solve all of them"

Kendall shared the post and added: "i am an extremely lucky girl. appreciative of all that i have. but i want you to know i have bad days too and that i hear you!

"you are beautiful just the way you are!!! it's not always as perfect as it may seem"

Netflix’s Crime Scene: Cecil Hotel manager Amy Price explains why she ‘never considered’ leaving

Netflix’s Crime Scene: The Vanishing At The Cecil Hotel has a lot of standout moments thanks to the central building’s deadly history – but many have been left wondering why the hotel manager decided to remain in her job, despite the horrors that happened there. 

Amy Price was recruited to manage the boarding house in 2007, remaining there until it officially closed in 2017, and during that time, she was witness to countless premature deaths – including murders, overdoses and suicides.

In her appearance in the new Netflix series, she admits at one point she asked somebody: ‘Is there a room here that somebody hasn’t died in?’

Amy’s since become one of the show’s most talked-about figures, with many questioning why she chose to stay in the hotel of horrors and not move on. 

Speaking exclusively to Metro.co.uk, Amy opened up about her work and her affinity with the building, stating that it ‘never’ crossed her mind to pack her bags and leave. 

‘Never. Not at all,’ she told us. ‘I had such a wonderful team that I worked with, and we were all committed to getting the job done and working together and we did that quite well.’

By her own admission, Amy knew little to nothing about the hotel’s history when she was employed by family friends to take over the day-to-day running of the business, which legally had to hold residents in cheap letting. 

Based on the edge of a downtrodden area of Los Angeles known as Skid Row, it was the area, not the building, that initially attracted discomfort. 

‘That was quite shocking to adjust to,’ she told us. ‘In the beginning it was what was going on outside the hotel [that worried me] before anything started happening inside the hotel.’ 

Previously home to multiple serial killers, most notably Richard Ramirez in the 1980s, the Cecil became known as ‘The Suicide’ and the ‘Hotel Death’ for its abnormally large body count.

In 2013, the death of Elisa Lam, who was was found in the water tank 19 days after her disappearance, sparked fresh mystery around the building, especially after the police released a video of Lam behaving strangely in an elevator.

The 21-year-old tourist’s official cause of death was listed as an ‘accidental drowning’, and the series concludes that Lam, who had a history of mental health problems including depression and bipolar, jumped into the tank herself during a manic episode.

But after her body was discovered, internet sleuths began to believe there was more to her death, with theories that she had been murdered by someone who was a fellow guest or resident.

Soon, morbid curiosity and a determination to play detective saw dozens of wannabe investigators descend on the Cecil, which Amy had to deal with on a consistent basis. 

‘It was like people just became obsessed,’ she explained. ‘The people that were checking in, they were there to do their own research. People just became obsessed.  

‘There was a time that I was sitting at my desk and somebody was climbing the exterior, attempting to climb up a wall. 

‘I look out my window and I’m thinking, “Oh my gosh, this was absolutely insane.”’

‘I think that people are naturally attracted to dark stories or mystery, and the nature of her death is certainly mysterious,’ Amy continued. ‘But it wasn’t a crime, it’s how she died. 

‘I think it’s just natural for people to be curious and that’s exactly what this is. When people are just so curious, you know, they want to believe there must be more to it.’ 

Lam’s body was discovered by a maintenance worker who went up to the water tank, after guests started complaining that water had low pressure, and was brown when it came out of the taps.

The water tank, which is situated on the roof, was used by the main building as well as a nearby coffee shop. 

When told about the discovery, Amy admits in the documentary that the first thing she did was call her mum to warn her about the upcoming media coverage, before calling the authorities.

‘I worked very closely with all the employees, but the one that did come to my office that day, to indicate that the woman that was missing was at the hotel, when he explained to me exactly where she was, I don’t know how anybody could process that real quickly,’ she said.

‘I did everything that I was supposed to do, notified the authorities and, knowing that she had passed away, but it was really hard for me to wrap my own head around.

‘It then really turned into quite a circus, but my job was to stay focused and get the hotel back and running and move forward. 

‘There was a tremendous amount of drama, and media attention – which led to this documentary.’

Despite her personal feelings on what happened, it was left up to Amy to keep some regularity at the hotel as the police, web sleuths, and true crime fanatics descended.

The police, unfortunately, was nothing new to Amy, thanks to the crime-riddled area in which it was located. 

‘We certainly had the police coming and going. I mean for the area that we were in there were certainly some challenges we faced,’ she said.

‘There were many interactions with the police but something high profile, I don’t think that too many things would hold a candle to Elisa Lam.

‘I would consider Elisa Lam the largest and certainly the most high profile case that I was faced with when I worked there.’

But ultimately, Amy continues to champion the Cecil, and what it could one day be, with new investors purchasing the property and closing the site in 2017. They are yet to reopen. 

‘For me, the story of the hotel, it’s a bittersweet one,’ she said. ‘It did close and I do hope that in the future it will reopen to something that is referenced to something different than what it has become. 

‘I think the hotel deserves that, and I’m just looking forward to a future without all the darkness included.’ 

Crime Scene: The Vanishing At The Cecil Hotel is available now on Netflix.

Speaking about the injury on Loose Women recently, Katie said: ‘I had a lot of criticism from people saying, “Oh you haven’t really broken them because if you had you wouldn’t be out and about.”

‘You girls know me, I am determined, I am not just going to sit there, you have to get on with life. They said it would take 18 months before I could walk again, I have started to walk a bit now, it has been about eight months.’

‘I am now regarded disabled, I can get a blue badge,’ she added.

‘I can only be on my feet for about 20 minutes a day, I will never be able to run again. ‘So all those marathons that I would like to have done, I am going to have to do bikes. I am trying to find a positive with everything. I can still ride my horses.’

Katie has been focusing on her eldest son Harvey, 18, who will be moving to a new residential college in order to become more independent.
