Kendall Jenner split from boyfriend of one year and NBA player, Ben Simmons, at the end of May, but speculation is circling that Jenner is now dating another NBA player. The Daily Mail released photographs of the 23-year-old model hanging out on a yacht with LA Lakers forward, Kyle Kuzma, before attending the Red, White & Bootsy bash in Malibu for a July 4th celebration.
Fuel was added to the fire when Jenner revealed last Thursday on her Zaza World Radio show, “I just feel like you should be in love on the fourth of July,” adding that “Fourth of July is arguably (in) my top two favorite holidays. That and Christmas. And Halloween, so top three. Fourth of July is up there for me. I don’t know why I love it so much. It’s the fireworks and the vibe.” Could this be signs of a high-on-love Kendall? We hope so.
Kuzma grew up in Michigan and played basketball for the University of Utah before being selected to play for Brooklyn Nets in 2017. Since then he has moved to the LA Lakers and, if the rumours are true, adds to the plethora of NBA players who have fell for a Jenner-Kardashian sister. First was Kris Humphries and his famous 72-day marriage to Kim, Lamar Odom married Khloé just once month into dating and Tristan Thompson fathered Khloé’s daughter True, Blake Griffin had an under the radar relationship with Kendall Jenner, then came Ben Simmons and now Kuzma may be added to the list.

And as much as we would love to believe the rumours to be true, don’t get your hopes up for this super-cute pairing just yet. A source told Entertainment Tonight that the photos Jenner and Kuzma were “nothing”, with another adding they were “hanging out over the holiday as friends. They’ve run in the same circle for a while and there’s no romantic relationship between them. Kendall is enjoying being single after ending things with Ben.”
Despite these sources, it isn’t far-fetched to believe the two could be actually dating, as the famously private Jenner often chooses to keep her relationships off camera and away from her family’s successful reality TV show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians. In a recent interview with Vogue Australia, Jenner admitted “bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier,” adding “I’m very young and right now I feel like relationships aren’t always super-certain and I don’t want to bring too much attention to something if you don’t really know long term [what it’s going to be]. A relationship is only meant to be between two people, and the second you make it the world’s business is when it starts messing with the two people mentally.”

So although it seems like it might be a while until we hear from Jenner herself if the dating rumour is genuine, we’re going to sit back and hope it is, because how cute would this pairing be?!
