As I have been telling you for years, athletes love a referral. Our latest example involves a family that is familiar with having multiple athletes – NBA players most notably – on their dating roster. According to Page Six, Sixers star Ben Simmons is currently dating Kendall Jenner.
If you have been keeping up, Kendall was most recently linked to former Clippers star Blake Griffin. In fact, Blake’s baby mama/fiancée Brynn Cameron sued Blake for palimony in part because she felt the current Pistons star was embarrassing in the way he fawned over the model.
Blake has reportedly moved on to former “Pretty Little Liars” star Shay Mitchell – Blake and Kendall cooled off after Blake was traded to Detroit. Oh just to keep you updated, Shay used to date Timberwolves star Jimmy Butler pre-Blake.
Ben was also recently involved with singer Tinashe. There were rumors he broke up with her because of her “Kardashian-like” approach to the relationship, that included calling the paps for photo ops and hopes that the two would become a power couple – cause athletes need a celebrity chick in their kit and singers looking to pop could use the boost. A comment Ben left on Instagram seems to indicate that the reason for their break up was false. He called the report “fake news.”
The irony of leaving one relationship due to alleged publicity seeking behavior, to enter another with a family history of that exact same thing.
But back to Kendall and Ben, a source claims their situation is new and has been going on for a few weeks. The couple was also allegedly spotted on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel and a gain in Manhattan Beach, ca.
Before Blake, Kendall was linked to Cleveland Cavs guard Jordan Clarkson.
