How Is Kendall Jenner Getting Over Ben Simmons?

Over the past several weeks, there has been a lot of speculation that Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons were on the verge of breaking up. The couple has always been quiet about their relationship, so it can be hard to gauge whether there is any truth to the rumors.

But this time, there seems to be evidence that things are over for the couple. Simmons has been seen around town living the single life and Jenner has posted stories on Instagram featuring the song “I Don’t Love You Anymore.” If this really is the end of their relationship, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is handling it in the best way possible.

When did Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons start dating?

Page Six first reported the reality TV star was dating basketball player Ben Simmons in March of 2018. Jenner has been very private about her dating life, typically not revealing who she is dating. However, things changed when she met Simmons.

Though Jenner didn’t publicly confirm that the two were dating until nearly a year into their relationship, the two were frequently photographed by the tabloids. Jenner has never shared how the two met, but it is believed that they were introduced through mutual friends.

Jenner told Vogue in a recent interview that she thinks that letting the public know about her relationships only makes things messier. Though she stars on a reality show, that doesn’t mean she has to share every detail of her romantic relationships. She has also said that it’s hard to know how long a relationship will last at her age so she doesn’t feel like it’s appropriate to share every person she is seeing.

Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons had some struggles along the way

It hasn’t been smooth sailing for the couple. They have had to deal with their share of tabloid rumors. In late 2018, tabloids reported that Simmons was caught cheating on Jenner. Simmons reportedly was seen kissing Gigi Hadid’s brother Anwar.

Recently, the two have had to face fans who don’t want to see the basketball star with a Kardashian. After the 76ers were eliminated from the playoffs early, fans bombarded both Simmons and Jenner begging Simmons to leave the reality star and focus on his jump shot. Fans tweeted Jenner, crying, “LEAVE BEN SIMMONS @KendallJenner.”

As it turns out, many fans believe in something called the “Kardashian Kurse.” These fans argue that successful athletes that date a Kardashian are doomed to suffer negative career consequences. It’s not just NBA players, the Kardashian Kurse covers all athletes that enter into a relationship with a member of the Kardashian family.

Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, and Kim Kardashian have all dated professional athletes. Fans contend that Lamar Odom, Tristan Thompson, and Reggie Bush all saw their careers take a turn after dating the famous sisters. And let’s not forget about Kris Humphries who recently penned an op-ed about how marrying a Kardashian changed his life.

Some people drown their sorrows in a tub of Ben and Jerry’s ice cream. Some search for revenge and trash talk their ex to their best friends. Kendall Jenner shows her ex exactly what he left behind.

Just days after the couple reportedly parted ways, Jenner took to Instagram in a barely there floral bikini. She captioned it simply with a watermelon emoji.

This isn’t the first time that the 23-year-old has posed in bikini and she is actually wearing more clothes than she has in a recent post. She did, however, accompany this most recent picture with a video of her zooming into her slender reflection in the mirror. It may be just coincidence, but it certainly isn’t a bad way to get over a breakup.
