In the world of the Kardashian / Jenner clan, it is virtually unheard of to keep a relationship out of the spotlight.
So it is impressive that Kendall Jenner has succeeded in keeping her relationship with NBA star Ben Simmons relatively low. Jenner hasn’t shared much about the couple’s relationship. This is what we know.
How did Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons meet?
According to reports, Jenner and Simmons met mutual friends. Rumors began to squirm about their relationship after Page Six reported that the couple were having lunch together. After the report, the two were seen and spent on shopping and spending time together.
Although rumors about their relationship began in May 2018, it was not until February of this year that Jenner finally confirmed their relationship. Jenner appeared on Ellen and the presenter of the talk show did not ask her subtly about her dating site. When asked how long the two went out, Jenner answered brutally: “A little bit now.”
Jenner intentionally keeps her relationships out of the spotlight
In a family that radiates every detail of their personal lives, it is no coincidence that we know so little about Jenner’s relationships. The model does its best to keep her personal relationships private and away from the judgmental eyes of the media.
During a recent radio show, Jenner stated: “I don’t want the world to have an opinion about something and let them completely change into something if I don’t even know what will happen in the next few months, because it is something I will have to explain. “
Kendall Jenner has been so private about her relationships that at some point fans questioned her sexuality. Kendall Jenner responded to the rumors by telling Vogue: “I think it’s because I’m not like all my other sisters, who are like,” Here’s me and my boyfriend! I don’t think I have a bisexual or gay bone in my body, but I don’t know! … I literally have nothing to hide. “
Simmons’ ex caused some security concerns
It seems that it is not just the media that Jenner should worry about. The couple had some problems with one of the former flames of the basketball star.
In July of last year, Jenner and Simmons visited a nightclub in LA. It happened to be the same club where Simmons’ ex, Tinashe was. When TMZ asked Tinashe if she had seen the couple inside, the singer replied: “I did [them inside]. He texted me. What the hell? What is he doing ?! What an idiot!”
However, Tinashe later admitted that he had invented the whole thing. The incident led to rumors that the singer stole the couple, increasing Jenner and Simmons’ safety.
The couple took a break last summer
It looked like it got serious in June, with reports that the couple rented a house together in Los Angeles. In addition to the house, the couple shared a romantic vacation to Mexico in August. But the couple couldn’t find their schedules to match and ended up stopping things. A source told US Weekly: “The relationship between Kendall and Ben is skeptical and disappears due to planning conflicts.” But the split did not last long and Kendall Jenner was seen as a judge in a 76ers game in November.
Jenner has said she won’t talk about her relationships until it’s serious
We still don’t know much about the relationship between Kendall Jenner and Simmons, but the reality star did confirm that she is actually dealing with the point guard. This is more than what she has done with every relationship in the past. Jenner was rumored to have Harry Styles, ASAP Rocky and Blake Griffin, but he never confirmed one of those relationships.
Do Jenner’s comments about Ellen mean that things are getting more serious this time? Is she ready to open up and inform the world about her relationship? For now, the couple is still keeping things calm. Only time will tell if Simmons is the one.
