Kendall Jenner, who previously dated NBA players Jordan Clarkson and Blake Griffin, has added another professional player to her boyfriend roster: Philadelphia 76er Ben Simmons. Page Six confirmed Jenner, 22, and Simmons, 21, are together via multiple sources, with one source saying the romance has been happening “for a few weeks.”
Another source said they were seen on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel this week; a third said they were seen at New York City’s Vandal restaurant with a group of friends last week, so there’s bicoastal commitment.
“Security measures seemed to have been taken to ensure Kendall and Ben enjoyed their night hassle free,” a witness told the outlet of that Manhattan night. “They were smiling the night away with their friends.”
Jenner saw Simmons Tuesday; he arrived at LAX on Monday, according to Page Six.
But there is drama with this new love. Simmons was last linked to Tinashe, and the breakup was so recent that one of her younger brothers, Kudzai Kachingwe, suggested Simmons’ and Jenner’s romance overlapped with his ending with Tinashe. “Never met you before in my life,” Kachingwe commented on the tweet of Page Six’s Jenner/Simmons report. “Days after u break my sis heart u do this.”

Tinashe, meanwhile, posted a bikini Instagram of herself, writing, “I set the bar, I’m the f*ckin bar.”
Commenters offered their support to her after Page Six’s report broke:
Several photos of her with Simmons remain up on her page for now:
She also follows Jenner and Simmons:
Simmons follows neither Tinashe nor Jenner. Some commenters on Tinashe’s Instagram noted he appeared to erase his photos with her. His Instagram currently is primarily just photos of himself.
