According to Page Six, a romance between 76ers' rookie Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner has been budding for a some weeks now. Observers on Instagram have noted that Simmons' has deleted all pictures depicting ex-girlfriend Tinashe, after reports claimed he grew tired of her antics. One source even spotted the new daters at a Beverly Hills Hotel partaking in a lunch date. Another source close to Page Six reported seeing the pair among friends at resto-club Vandal in Manhattan. This is Kendal Jenner's second helping of top-tier NBA talent, after having previously dated Pistons' forward Blake Griffin while he was stationed in Los Angeles.

Kendall Jenner, 21 years of age, is notorious for keeping her dating exploits private. A witness to their romp in Manhattan mentioned seeing a strong security presence at Vandal so as to ensure they "enjoyed their night hassle free." Kendall was rumored to have dated A$AP Rocky but hasn't admitted to it outside of her circle of friends. She had spent Memorial Weekend with half-sister Kourtney on Fun-Boy pool floats, but met with Simmons' shortly thereafter. As we reported, Ben Simmons was at LAX (Los Angeles) on Monday awaiting his taxi, when a conversation erupted concerning his offseason plans.
