3 New Details About Kendall Jenner’s New Boyfriend Ben Simmons, Including Rumors He Cheated On Tinashe

She's apparently moved on from Blake Griffin.

Just one month after Kendall Jenner and her ex-NBA boyfriend Blake Griffin awkwardly avoided each other at the 2018 Coachella music festival, it appears Jenner has moved on with a new NBA star, Ben Simmons.

A source told Page Six that the two have been seeing each other “for a few weeks.”

21-year-old Philadelphia 76ers player Simmons apparently is so talented he’s been compared to LeBron James, who has even called Simmons out on his own Instagram account. “I told y’all a while back that my young King was next in line!” James wrote in March 2018. ”Remember lil bro settle for nothing less than GREATNESS!!!”

However, Simmons has proven to be more than just a talented basketball player. He’s also apparently pretty charming, as he’s already dated stars like Tinashe and Brittany Renner. But while Jenner tends to keep her relationships low-key and drama-free (especially when compared with those of her sisters), it seems her relationship with Simmons is born out of drama.

1. Simmons reportedly broke up with Tinashe for acting like a Kardashian.

A source told MTO News that Simmons broke up with Tinashe for “doing Kardashian” stuff. "She is way to public with everything. They just started dating and this girl is calling up paparazzi and [stuff] like that,” the source explained. “And Ben's not trying to be Kanye."

Tinashe first shared photos of her and Simmons just a couple of months ago, telling Billboard, “He’s like my full boyfriend, I guess. It was official before it was on the 'Gram; that was just when everyone else found out.”

While Simmons has reportedly deleted all photo evidence of his relationship with Tinashe from his Instagram account, Tinashe still has photos of her and Simmons live but has yet to address his rumored new relationship.

2. Did Simmons cheat on Tinashe with Jenner?

After news of Simmons’ and Jenner’s relationship broke, Tinashe’s family took to Twitter to defend Tinashe and set the story straight. Her brother wrote, “Never met you before in my life. days after u break my sis heart u do this…”

Tinashe’s grandmother also shared her feelings on Twitter and revealed that she was taking a social media break to avoid the negative press about her granddaughter. “I have decided to leave Twitter because of all the hate and lies about Tinashe,” she wrote. “You must realize that I love her very much but as a family member I really can’t call out all the lies and hate because some things should not be shared.”

3. Will Ben Simmons get the “Kardashian Curse?”

Simmons’ new connection to Jenner isn’t lost on fans, who are already worried Simmons will be lost to the “Kardashian curse.”

“The Kardashian curse is every male figure that comes and dates a Kardashian. Their life kind of just goes downhill after that,” Kylie Jenner reportedly said in a 2016 episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Whether or not the hex is a real thing is, of course, debatable — but the track record is pretty impressive.
