Ben Simmons Previous Dating Affairs
The current relationship between Ben and a hot model isn’t the first time he has been linked with a vivacious beauty. Let’s talk about all of them one by one.
Back in June of 2017, he was in a relationship with the former Women’s Basketball player and now a rapper and model, Dylan Gonzalez. Their relationship was rather short-lived and ended after a couple of months in November of the same year. Besides, they had kept their romance under the radar because of which there are no details about their relationship.
After breaking things up with Dylan, the player from the land down under started dating American rapper, Tinashe. The former flames dated for a couple of months in 2018.
They seemingly confirmed their romance rumors in March after they shared similar pictures on their Instagram handles. After going their separate ways, Ben has since deleted the post, but Tinashe has kept the post.
Now talking about why they broke up, apparently, it was because of Tinashe’s show-off nature. A source close to the Basketball star claimed that Ben was tired of Tinashe doing Kardashian ‘sh*t’. The source told MTO News, “She is way to [sic] public with everything. They just started dating and this girl is calling up paparazzi.”
Ben once also dated fitness model Brittanny Renner. Their relationship fizzled out rather quickly.
Apart from his link-ups, Ben was once accused by trans Instagram model Amani that he asked her to hook up with him and five of his teammates simultaneously. However, later on, it seemed like Amani was putting up fake information on the internet for clout.
Ben famously dated Kendall Jenner
Of all the girls Simmons has dated, his love story with Kendall gained the most prominence from pop culture. Though there is no exact time as to when they started dating, numerous tabloids claim they started going out in May of 2018.
Around the same time, various tabloids also mentioned that Ben was hanging out with Jenner while he still had not broken up things with Tinashe.
Their relationship quickly became a hot commodity among the media and fans alike. While they were dating, Kendall used to attend many of her former beau games. Nevertheless, their relationship ran its course and they split up in May 2019, a year after they started dating.
Even though the exact reason behind their separation is not known, fans think it might be due to the physical distance between them. While Kendall was spending most of her time in Los Angeles, Ben was living in Philadelphia due to his team commitment. Despite all that, the duo had separated on good terms so we might see them back together in the foreseeable future.
