The ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star sets things straight on her past romantic relationships while responding to a meme circulating on Twitter about her rumored basketball player beaus.
Kendall Jenner has savagely shut down a speculation about her past dating life. On Tuesday, July 16, the model and reality TV star clapped back at a meme circulating on Twitter which pokes fun at her history of dating NBA stars.
“Starting 5 of NBA players Kendall Jenner dated,” read a text above a composite of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson, Golden State Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell, Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons, Los Angeles Lakers forward Kyle Kuzma and Detroit Pistons forward Blake Griffin.
Someone retweeted the meme and wrote along with it, “This is a playoff team lmao.” Responding to the post, Kendall clarified that not all of those five men were her ex-boyfriends. “2 out of 5 accurate, thanks,” she simply replied.
The two guys Kendall referenced are likely Ben and Blake. She was first romantically linked to Blake in the summer of 2017, but they apparently grew apart after his trade from the Los Angeles Clippers to the Detroit Pistons.
The 23-year-old star later dated Ben on and off over the last year. In February, she confirmed on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that she had been dating the 22-year-old athlete “for a bit now.” However, in May, a source said that their romance had cooled off. “The relationship ran its course,” a source told PEOPLE. “She’s spending time with her friends and back to being in fun mode.”
Kendall’s response to the Twitter meme comes a few days after Ben’s sister seemingly shaded the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star. Liv Alice posted on Twitter, “I just wouldn’t ever wanna be known for dating athletes. Like imagine working your way through a league. Not a team a LEAGUE!”
She added later, “I’d rather be crazy than be a h*e.” When a Twitter user called her out for dissing Kendall and asked Ben to “tell your sister to shut-up and stop hating on her,” she replied, “I didn’t name any names but if the shoe fits WEAR IT.”
