One of the television personalities who rose to fame because of Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian is Jonathan Cheban. Kim and Jonathan have been best friends for a decade, but his absence in Kim K's social media has made people question if the two are still friends. 

Kim Kardashian And Jonathan's Decade Long Friendship 

Cheban, famous for his nickname Foodgod has been friends with the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star Kim Kardashian since the two met at a friend's birthday party. Since then, the duo has remained best friends, and Johnathan is also a major member of the show Keeping Up With The Kardashians.  

However, he has not made a constant appearance in both the show and Kim's social media, raising many eyebrows about their friendship. However, it all seems to be baseless rumors as the duo did take a vacation together in 2019, and Jonathan also shared a video with Kim on her birthday. 

The caption read- 

KIM...Happy Birthday to the most awesome and amazing best friend anyone could ask for! I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you!! I am so happy we have been able to spend countless times laughing and growing! You have grown into a legend! You’re not just my best friend, You’re the best Period!!! Love you so much!! Foodgod (stop calling me Jonathan)

Also, Jonathan uploaded a picture with Kim and her kids being part of the Halloween family costume.

Is Jonathan Gay? His Sexuality Revealed

The whole speculation about Jonathan being gay ignited when Kris Humphries, Kim's then-fiance, questioned Cheban's manhood. His logic was simple as he said-

"Wait, you’re straight but you’ve never wanted to sleep with Kim? Impossible!"

That statement spread like wildfire, and ever since, people have been raising their eyebrows regarding his sexuality. However, despite the gay speculations, his relationship history shows something different.

Cheban formerly had a girlfriend named Anat Popovsky, which smacked down all the speculations of him being gay. Anat and Cheban began dating in the year 2013 and had made various public appearances with each other.

According to the source, things were going smoothly, and they were getting so serious that even Kim was okay with Anat dating her BFF. The source stated-

"Lately, things have been getting serious. They're together all the time. Where he goes, she goes. Kim has met her and really likes her—and she's very picky when it comes to who dates her best friend!"

But, they split after a year in April 2014 because of some ups and downs in their relationship. However, as per sources, Cheban was missing Anat and wanted to give the relationship a second go.

Finally, Cheban and Anat reconciled in October 2015 just to split for the final time in August 2016. The reason behind their split is reported to be the fact that Cheban left Anat at home and ended up partying with other models.

Just three days after the break-up, he was spotted with the beauty Corinne Olympios. But, that was the start of a new relationship for FoodGod. Soon, he stirred another rumor on 7 January 2019 when he was spotted coming out of the C restaurant in London with a Kardashian lookalike.

The beautiful lady was wearing a stunning black dress, and Cheban matched her outfit with a black dress up of his own. Though the food lover did not reveal any information about the girlfriend, the two looked very good together.
