Why Kendall Jenner’s Fans Think Ben Simmons’ Sister Just Attacked Her For Dating Too Many Athletes
Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner’s relationship is over, but drama between the athlete’s sister and the reality star’s fans is just getting started.
Days before Simmons made headlines for inking a five-year, $170 million extension with the Philadelphia 76ers, the NBA star’s sister, Olivia, appeared to take a shot at his ex-girlfriend via Twitter and Jenner’s fans took notice. Here’s what Liv said and why the model’s fans are freaking out over the post.
What Simmons’ sister tweeted
Jenner and the Sixers point guard reportedly called it quits in May.
“They were getting serious for a bit, but were starting to cool off recently,” an insider told Us Weekly. “They’re so busy doing their own things and realize they’re young and want to have fun.”
In early July, photos of Jenner aboard a yacht with Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma surfaced. Once the photos made the rounds, Liv took to Twitter with some thoughts that have fans believing she was criticizing her brother’s ex for her choice in men.
“I just wouldn’t ever wanna be known for dating athletes. Like imagine working your way through a league. Not a team a LEAGUE!” Liv tweeted.
And in another tweet she declared, “I’d rather be crazy than be a ho.”
Jenner’s fans defended the reality star
Even though Liv never mentioned the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star by name, Jenner’s fans defended her. Simmons’ big sis then responded to some of their tweets, leading to a bit of back and forth on the social media platform.
Other NBA stars the model has dated
The reason everyone is convinced Liv was talking about Jenner is because the supermodel has dated or been linked to a number of basketball players over the years.
In 2014, Jenner was spotted on a dinner date with then-Dallas Mavericks small forward Chandler Parsons. The two weren’t photographed together much after that but reunited in 2017 when she was seen sitting courtside at one of his games and then hitting up the same nightclubs. However, their romance eventually fizzled out for the second time soon after.
The runway model was also reportedly involved with D’Angelo Russell, who currently plays for the Golden State Warriors. But despite multiple news outlets noting that they were an item, sources close to Jenner claimed that they were no more than friends.
In 2016, Jenner was rumored to be dating another NBA player, Jordan Clarkson, after a video of them kissing on New Year’s Eve circulated online. By the end of the year though it was over.
After Clarkson, Jenner started seeing then-Clippers power forward Blake Griffin. The reality star actually opened up about that relationship in an issue of Vogue saying, “I’m happy. He’s very nice. I have someone being very nice to me.” Apparently being nice didn’t pay off because by April 2018 they were no longer a thing.
Jenner then moved on with Simmons before sparking romance rumors with Kuzma.
