Did Ben Simmons Dump Tinashe for Kendall Jenner?

This rookie knows how to rebound, on and off the court.

You may have spent the evening focused on the diss triangle between Drake, Quentin Miller, and Pusha-T. But another famous trio was making headlines too, as rumors swirled that Ben Simmons has broken up with Tinashe and rebounded with none other than Kendall Jenner.

What makes this new coupling even stranger is that last week, rumors emerged that the Philadelphia 76ers rookie dumped Tinashe because she was on some "Kardashian shit," like "calling up paparazzi." 

If these new dating rumors are true, then perhaps Simmons didn't want less Kardashian shit, but more. 

Page Six is reporting that Jenner and Simmons were spotted dining out with a group of friends in Manhattan last week, before enjoying lunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel alone the following week. A source told the publication the two have been dating for "a few weeks." 

"Security measures seemed to have been taken to ensure Kendall and Ben enjoyed their night hassle free," a witness, who saw the pair out together last week, told Page Six. "They were smiling the night away with their friends."

Jenner recently split from her other NBA boo Blake Griffin, not long after he was traded to the Detroit Pistons. The two were reportedly avoiding each other at Coachella last month. 

Meanwhile, Simmons and Tinashe first confirmed dating rumors back in March, after Simmons was caught sliding into the Joyride singer's Instagram comments. Simmons has since deleted his Instagram post where he called Tinashe "a dime I can't pass up." 

Tinashe posted her last photo of Simmons near the end of April. Her younger brother recently went on Twitter to tweet about the breakup, saying the couple split on Sunday. 

If Simmons and Kendall have been dating for a few weeks, as sources say, then the rookie may have been trying to get "2 On." Unfortunately, if Tinashe hadn't agreed to an open relationship, then this could mean Simmons was cheating on the singer—if the rumors are true.
