Kendall Jenner and Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons have reportedly called it quits on their relationship.
People reports that sources close to the couple have confirmed their recent split, noting that the relationship "ran its course." Page Six cited Simmons' recent trip to Atlantic City, which coincided with the release of Jenner's Vogue Australia cover story.
When asked about the potential of she and Simmons tying the knot, Jenner told the publication, "Maybe. Definitely not now, but maybe one day." According to the gossip site, the day the Vogue story was published, Simmons was out and about with his entourage on the New Jersey shore and there were whispers that he and Kendall had ended their relationship.
That same day, Jenner reportedly posted a handful of cryptic Instagram Stories, which included Tyler, the Creator's "I Don’t Love You Anymore" and lyrics from another Tyler track, "Puppet," which includes, "I wanna call you and talk."
Jenner and Simmons have been in an on-again-off-again relationship since March of last year. A source close to the model told E! News in August of last year, during one of their off-again periods, that she was never looking for anything serious with the NBA star. “She likes Ben but she knew it was more of a summer fling," the source explained. "They both have busy careers and it is what it is. Kendall isn't looking for anything serious. She had fun with Ben, but wasn't ever fully committed or looking for a long-term, exclusive relationship."
In her Vogue interview, the supermodel explained her reasoning for keeping her romantic relationships away from the public eye. "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]," she explained. "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. Like once everyone is let in, you’re letting all these opinions into your relationships, and I don’t think that’s fair."
