It’s well known that Kendall Jenner is quite private about her love life, which makes it hard to know which romance rumours are true and which are just, well, rumours.
One boyfriend we can be sure of is NBA player, Ben Simmons. The model reportedly dated him for nearly a year, with the pair splitting at the end of May. Not long after, there was speculation that the reality star was romantically involved with yet another NBA player, Kyle Kuzma. The pair were reportedly seen getting close on a boat back in June.
However, on Tuesday night, Jenner shut down the rumours of any romance with Kuzma along with a number of other NBA players she has been rumoured to be linked to after a meme was posted on Twitter about Jenner dating NBA players.
The Twitter meme in question showed five basketball players that had been speculated to have dated Jenner over the years. The image was captioned: “Starting 5 of the NBA players Kendall Jenner Dated,” with a second caption that read: “This is a playoff team lmao”. The five basketball players featured were D’Angelo Russell, Jordan Clarkson, Ben Simmons, Kyle Kuzma, and Blake Griffin.
And while Jenner doesn’t usually respond to romance rumours, the inaccuracy of this clearly spurred the model into responding. Mere hours after the meme started doing the internet rounds, Jenner commented: “2 out of 5 accurate, thanks”.
In regards to Jenner’s comment, we assume the “accurate” two are Ben Simmons and Blake Griffin; Simmons being her most recent boyfriend and a romance with Griffith reported to have taken place back in 2017.
As for the remaining three, a few years back, she and Jordan Clarkson were seen getting close in public a couple of times but apparently nothing other than friendship or even just proximity was between them. In terms of those recent rumours about Kyle Kuzma, the pair were seen on a boat together, however it has now been confirmed they are just friends. As for the D’Angelo Russell rumour, that could have possibly just been the internet needing a fifth NBA player to make the meme complete.
But at the end of the day, it’s difficult to confirm for sure any of Jenner’s relationships because she keeps them so private. In her recent interview with Vogue Australia, Jenner explained her reluctance to share her relationships with the world, saying, “bringing things into the public makes everything so much messier… 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.”
