Kendall Jenner Rumors
Blake Griffin recently participated in Comedy Central’s roast of Alec Baldwin, but the NBA star also didn’t hold back when it came to making a few jokes aimed at ex-girlfriend Kendall Jenner’s parent Caitlyn Jenner. “I know we’re all here making fun of Caitlyn, but honestly I want to take this moment to publicly thank you. As an athlete, I want to thank you for bravery. And as a human, I want to thank you for the doors you’ve opened,” the 30-year-old basketball player said in a preview of the upcoming segment. “And on behalf of the entire NBA and half of the rappers on the Billboard charts, I want to thank you for giving your daughters their daddy issues,” he jokingly added.
Kendall Jenner was seen over Labor Day weekend enjoying attention from two NBA stars — an ex as well as a rumored suitor. Sources said that the supermodel was at Soho Beach House in Malibu “playing [party game] Cards Against Humanity with Blake Griffin,” her ex-boyfriend and former LA Clippers star. That’s when current LA Lakers player “Kyle Kuzma showed up, and both athletes were jockeying for attention,” our spy said.
Kendall Jenner and NBA star Ben Simmons have split, according to sources. Sources said that at the same time a new Australia Vogue cover story dropped — quoting supermodel Jenner saying of potentially marrying Simmons, “Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day” — Simmons was partying solo in Atlantic City, NJ, with pals.
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons did what lots of couples do when the holiday season rolls around — hit up an ice skating rink so the guy can watch his GF twirl like she’s Kristi Yamaguchi … but she isn’t. Kendall and Ben hit up Philadelphia’s Rothman Institute Ice Rink on Monday — although Kendall was the only one brave enough to slip on a pair of skates.
There were a reported 1,481 fans at Drexel’s Daskalakis Athletic Center on Saturday. Incredibly, the Philadelphia 76ers’ Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner — who have been reported to be dating for some time — were among those who took in the Dragons’ game against Robert Morris. Their attendance in the bleachers at the Philadelphia university gym was spotted by cameras during Drexel’s 82-69 win. That came one night after Jenner was spotted courtside at the 76ers’ game against the Washington Wizards sitting next to Ben Simmons’ mother. It was also reported that T.J. McConnell was in attendance at the game. The Pittsburgh native’s brother, Matty McConnell, plays for Robert Morris, located near the Steel City.
Kevin Durant’s 30th birthday is right around the corner (Sept. 29), and the Warriors’ superstar celebrated in a way fitting NBA royalty. Guests included Warriors teammate Draymond Green, NBA stars Kyrie Irving and Carmelo Anthony, and celebrities like Chris Rock, Kendall Jenner, and Swizz Beats, Cam’ron, Jim Jones and Jus Ske provided some entertainment. But what really set the event apart from your run of the mill star party, according to Page Six, was a video toast delivered by none other than former president Barack Obama.
NBA star Kevin Durant celebrated his upcoming 30th birthday on Saturday night in New York at trendy seafood eatery the Pool — with pals including Chris Rock, Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, Kyrie Irving, Carmelo Anthony and Swizz Beatz. An insider told us, “Kevin’s friend and business partner Rich Kleiman gave a speech, and Virgil [Abloh] gave him a specially designed bottle of Moët. A video also played in which Barack Obama made a toast.”
Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons haven’t confirmed they’re an item yet, but they’re already eating from the same fridge, apparently. Sources tell us the two have been holing up in a $25k/month rental in L.A. It’s unclear whose name is on the lease, but they’ve both been spotted coming in and out of the ultra modern crib frequently, and we’re told the lease term is for several months.
Ben Simmons is pulling a Khloe Kardashian — getting back together with his significant other after she sucked face with another person! Just weeks after Kendall Jenner was spotted making out with Anwar Hadid, she seems to be fully back with the 6’10” Simmons … because the 2 partied in Hollywood on Thursday until 2 in the morning!!
After Page Six exclusively reported that Kendall Jenner and 76ers star Ben Simmons are an item, their exes, singer Tinashe and Pistons star Blake Griffin, were hanging out together in Las Vegas. Spies tell us that Simmons and Tinashe, whom he allegedly dumped for Jenner, were both at Hyde Sunset in LA on Friday to celebrate the birthday of co-owner Frankie Delgado, and they steered clear of each other.
Well, it’s official … Ben Simmons is 100% hanging with Kendall Jenner — because they hit up Nice Guy in West Hollywood together on Wednesday night — on a double date with another NBA star. It’s funny because Ben and Kendall hit up one of the most paparazzi-packed places in town — but arrived separately so the photogs couldn’t get a shot of them together. Still, everyone knew the jig … especially when they left and both got into the same SUV — along with Kylie’s BFF, Jordyn Woods, who was hanging with 21-year-old rising star Devin Booker.
Another source told us the pair was spotted this week on a lunch date at the Beverly Hills Hotel. And a third source said that Jenner, 22, and Simmons, 21, were seen last week in Manhattan with a group of friends at the clubby Bowery restaurant Vandal. “Security measures seemed to have been taken to ensure Kendall and Ben enjoyed their night hassle free,” said a witness. “They were smiling the night away with their friends.”
Blake Griffin had fun Monday night despite leading his Los Angeles Clippers to an embarrassing 107-85 loss against the New York Knicks. After posting 21 points in 6-of-18 shooting and being a minus-20, Griffin reportedly partied into the wee hours of the morning with Kendall Jenner. Jenner was in the crowd at Madison Square Garden to watch Griffin’s Clippers lose their ninth-straight game. Luckily, Blake clearly didn’t expend much energy on the court, so he was able to stay out until 3 a.m.
Chandler Parsons and Kendall Jenner have been partying “all over Hollywood,” rendezvousing twice this week with the Grizzlies in town, according to TMZ. (Who else?) Earlier in the week, they “bumped into” each other at a Rolls Royce/Bentley/Bugati dealership. Oh, you shop here too? In the story, TMZ refers to the two as “ex-flames.” In 2014, Parsons responded to rumors that he and Jenner were dating by saying that when they were spotted together it was merely a “group activity.”
Jordan Clarkson and Kendall Jenner were said earlier this month to be “either secretly dating” or “secretly hooking up.” If you’re a Lakers fan, you’re probably thinking that this isn’t the greatest news — the Kardashian curse afflicts many — for Clarkson’s long-term basketball performance, but what can you do? This video of Clarkson leapfrogging his alleged girlfriend made its way across social media platforms late last week, and you’ve gotta give him credit for delivering under pressure. It’s one thing to have a vertical that enables you to vault over things that are nearly six-feet tall. It’s another task altogether when if you mess this one up your gaffe could be pasted on every tabloid in the planet.
