Page Six reported on May 22, 2019, supermodel Kendall Jenner and 22-year-old Philadelphia 76er Ben Simmons, her boyfriend, have broken up. The couple had been together for less than a year.
Publications started reporting in May 2018 that the two were spending time together. They appeared to be in a relationship by the fall. Jenner was often seen courtside watching Simmons play.
The 23-year-old also met his mother and spent time with her.
In a recent interview with Vogue, Jenner discussed her relationship with Simmons. She was asked about her feelings about marrying her latest boyfriend.
She told the publication: “Maybe I will someday. It is definitely not the right time now, but maybe in the future.” She continued by saying, ” I had seen how my sisters have dealt with the attention they had surrounding their relationships, and it is cool to be able to learn from them.”
Continuing, she said, “There are many things that are sacred and special to me like relationships and friends. I think by bringing details public, it makes things messier.” Adding, “I am young, and I feel that relationships are not certain, and I do not want to bring attention to something that may not be long term.”
During an interview in February 2019 on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Jenner told the talk show host that she and Simmons were dating.
