Kendall Jenner and NBA star Ben Simmons have split, according to sources.
Sources said that at the same time a new Vogue Australia cover story dropped — quoting supermodel Jenner saying of potentially marrying Simmons, “Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day” — Simmons was partying solo in Atlantic City, NJ, with pals.
Simmons was spotted with friends at Kuro at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino celebrating a pal’s birthday.
We hear that the group later turned up at Scores, and that there was buzz among Ben’s entourage that he and Jenner called it quits last week.
Another source familiar with the couple said they have broken up.
Adding fuel to the rumours, Jenner was posting some cryptic Instagram Story posts the same night — including the new Tyler, the Creator tune, “I Don’t Love You Anymore” as well as lyrics to another of the rapper’s songs, “Puppet,” which includes the line: “I wanna call you and talk.”
Sources said Simmons’ crew included a “tall, supersexy brunette.”
However, the source added of any Scores ladies: “Ben was at a centre booth by the stage, but when the topless girls came to the booth, he had security send them away.”
Reps didn’t comment.
Jenner explained why she kept the relationship low-profile in an interview with Vogue Australia.
“I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term (that it’s going to be),” she said.
“A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally. Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair.”
Simmons is coming home to Australia during the upcoming NBA offseason to play for the national team in games against Canada and the US.
