Just when we thought the Kardashian / Jenner’s were done with NBA players … this happens. According to multiple reports, NBA baller Ben Simmons is now dating Kendall Jenner, but unfortunately it’s a super messy situation.
If you recall, most of this year Simmons has been dating singer Tinashe and the two had been very public about their romance on social media.
Back in April, Simmons and Tinashe both posted this photo with sweet messages on Instagram.
And Tinashe was even stanning for her man when Philly made the playoffs back in April.
Now all of that has seemingly changed. According to Page Six, the 76er’s player has been dating Jenner “for a couple weeks.” One source told the magazine the pair was spotted this week on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And another source said that Jenner, 22, and Simmons, 21, were seen last week in Manhattan with a group of friends at the clubby Bowery restaurant Vandal.
Unfortunately this is all surprising news to Tinashe’s family. In a series of tweets, Tinashe’s younger brother went off on Simmons for his new relationship with Jenner. Apparently, Simmons and Tinashe only broke up on Sunday despite reports he’s been seeing Jenner for weeks.
“Never met you before in my life. days after u break my sis heart u do this… ppl all lied on her talking fake news about my sis *doing kardashian shit * u cheat on her w a Jenner,” her brother Kudzai Kaschingwe wrote on Twitter after quoting the Page Six article.
According to Media Takeout Simmons gave the Joyride singer the boot for doing, “Kardashian sh*t” aka calling paparazzi to capture photos of them on dates.
Kaschinwe doesn’t address those reports, but said he felt the need to defend his sister and apologized for going off so strongly.
Tinashe, meanwhile, posted a bikini Instagram of herself, writing, “I set the bar, I’m the f*ckin bar.”
Several photos of her with Simmons also remain up on her page for now. Simmons, however, has deleted photos of Tinashe from his IG account.
Meanwhile, Jenner is rebounding from another NBA star — former LA Clippers player Blake Griffin, who was traded to the Detroit Pistons. The pair was seen avoiding each other last month at music festival Coachella around the time she reportedly started hooking up with Simmons.
