Here's why Kendall Jenner is being so secretive about her relationship to NBA star
Who cares what's happening in your family? The Kardashian family is far more interesting! With a net worth of $900 million, Kylie Jenner is set to become the world's youngest female billionaire. Kim Kardashian breaks the Internet every time she posts an adorable baby photo (or sizzling nude selfie). Kourtney Kardashian is at the center of a heated discussion in the new Keeping Up With The Kardashians trailer. And after Tristan Thompson got busted for cheating, Khloe Kardashian shocked fans by taking him back. Judging by this cute video of Tristan dancing with their daughter, True, all that drama is over.
But we don't hear much from Kendall Jenner, do we? The 22-year-old became the world's highest paid model in 2017, taking the crown from Giselle. But while she's constantly strutting the runway and posting stunning photos on social media, her personal life is shrouded in secrecy. (Well, for a Kardashian, anyway.)
We know Kendall is dating Ben Simmons, the 21-year-old basketball player for the Philadelphia 76'ers. They were first spotted having lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel in May. Since then, the paparazzi snapped photos of them on dates in New York City and Los Angeles. But details are scarce. A source close to Kendall told People why she keeps her relationship hush-hush:
“She’s being very private about her relationship with Ben. Kendall’s really different from her sisters in that sense. She honestly doesn’t want people talking about who she’s dating and is very protective of her personal life. She hates the attention and it’s been annoying that the drama with Tinashe has come up."
The "drama with Tinashe" refers to an incident that happened last weekend. Tinashe is Ben's ex-girlfriend, and, in an unfortunate coincidence, went to the same club as Ben and Kendall. To make the situation even more awkward, Tinashe told TMZ that Ben was texting her while they were all inside. She also told the media outlet that she is done dating basketball players, and referred to Ben as an "idiot."
But Kendall has time for such drama. According to People's source, she's looking forward to relaxing this summer.
"Things are definitely heating up though and she’s having a good time with him. She’s excited to spend the summer with Ben. Over the last year, she also slowed down some of her work and took a break from the runway. She deals with a lot of anxiety and needed a breather. That kind of traveling really takes a toll on her, but she’s been feeling good."
Rumors emerged that Kendall and Ben were living together in Los Angeles. However, the source said that is not a permanent arrangement. "Ben is renting the house. Kendall is not on the lease. It’s a gorgeous house, so it makes sense that she wants to stay over as much as possible."
Well, we'll whatever information we can get! It's the Kardashian's world, and we're just living in it.
