No boyfriend, no clothes, no problem.

Kendall Jenner bared it all for her latest Instagram post, sunbathing completely in the nude amid her split from Devin Booker.

The supermodel, 26, was pictured laying on her stomach on a sun lounge, wearing nothing but a green 818 Tequila baseball cap.

A string bikini was strewn on the lounge beside her, along with a bottle of water, as she typed on her phone.

The photo dump, which she captioned simply with the blushing emoji, also featured pics and videos of herself horseback riding, enjoying a plate of sushi and the sunset.

“Tell me you and your bf broke up without telling me you and your bf broke up,” one follower commented, referencing her recent breakup from the 25-year-old NBA star.

The couple called it quits last week after two years together. Sources told Page Six they were on different pages about where the relationship was heading.

“While they care for each other, Devin was not going to propose marriage and his priority is his career,” the insider told us. “Kendall’s career also dominates her life.”

Just last month, the notoriously private reality star attended big sis Kourtney Kardashian and Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker’s wedding in Italy, with Booker in tow.

They were also recently spotted together at family friend Anastasia “Stassie” Karanikolaou’s birthday in Los Angeles.
