Kendall Jenner made headlines recently, after being scared on Friday’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. During her interview, she confirmed that Ben Simmons and her are now a thing. When Ellen asked her how long she had been dating him, Kendall replied, “For a bit now.” She had a smile on her face.
It is unknown if the pair will get more serious or not but for now they have made their relationship official. Ellen DeGeneres made a remark, referring to Simmons saying, “Who’s that guy in the way?” Jenner jokingly laughed by saying, “I’m not so sure”.
Ben Simmons plays basketball for the Philadelphia 76ers. He is 22 year old and Kendall is 23. While Kendall has been thrust into the spotlight from her modelling career, she is also known for the reality television series “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”. Viewers tune in to watch her families antics on and off screen.
Recently, photos have been released online showing both Jenner and Simmons getting cozy with one another. TMZ later published a photograph of Jenner with her arm around Simmons
While Kendall was on the The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen asked whether or not Kendall’s mother Kris Jenner, approved of her new found relationship. Kendall replied by saying, “I think so”. Moments later, a Kris Jenner impersonator popped out from a nearby piece of furniture, scaring Kendall and effectively ending the line of questioning altogether.
During her interview with Ellen, Kendall explained her fondness for basketball after attending games with her sister Khloe Kardashian. Kendall was first linked to Australian basketball star Ben Simmons last summer.
However, they appeared to cool things off before Kendall started appearing at basketball games again dating back to the month of November. In recent times, Kendall has been frequently spotted cheering Ben on court-side next to Julie (Ben’s mother)
Perhaps we will see more of Kendall and Ben, as the world is their oyster for now it seems.
