Ben Simmons’ girlfriend history is an impressive list of Instagram stars. From maybe the most popular person on the ‘gram, to a couple other 7 figure follower girls, he’s done well for his short career in the NBA. Without further adieu.
2018 – ____ : Ben Simmons’ girlfriend Kendall Jenner
Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner began dating in 2018. Though their time together has been short lived, there have been plenty of paparazzi shots of the pair. They were first seen together over the summer, though were rumored to have called it off when Simmons headed back East for the season. Things are pretty clearly heating up again. The pair has been spotted out together, with multiple reports coming about their status. Some reports suggest that the pair is getting very serious, and plan to spend New Years Eve together. Jenner is also reportedly getting close to Simmons mom. If that ain’t serious, I sure don’t know what is.
Rumors started swirling as the 2019 playoffs tipped off that these two may have called it splits. But, the genesis and validity of these reports is difficult to determine. There are plenty of Sixer fans who seem to blame any and all struggles on the Kardashian,… Wishful thinking.
2017-2018: Ben Simmons’ girlfriend Tinashe
Gonna be totally honest here. We missed this one. Simmons and Tinashe apparently dated earlier this year, but broke up. And, if online reports are any semblance of honest, Tinashe had a tough time accepting the split. Reports seem to suggest that Tinashe cannot handle the breakup, and coincidentally showed up wherever Simmons and Jenner were. From the Mercury News:
Tinashe’s tendency to be up at the same Los Angeles-area events — at least three times in the past month — has become problematic enough that the Philadelphia 76er has hired extra security, TMZ and other outlets have reported. TMZ said Simmons believes the “All Hands on Deck” singer has become “obsessed” with him after he dumped her for Jenner.
An insider told TMZ in early July: “Ben is convinced Tinashe cannot accept the fact he ended their relationship and has moved on with Kendall. He believes she’s showing up to keep tabs on him so she can see if there’s a chink in the armor between him and Kendall.”
If that’s true? Yikes.
2017: Ben Simmons’ girlfriend Dylan Gonzalez
Ben Simmons’ girlfriend Dylan Gonzales is an Instagram star in the million follower club. The business of social media modeling and advertising is also a lot more work than you might imagine. It’s important to note right off the bat that Dylan is a twin. Her twin sister is named Dakota. They are basketball stars at UNLV.
The first time Ben Simmons’ girlfriend showed up on his timeline was August 21, 2017. That means they started to date fairly recently. Generally speaking, girlfriends of athletes make their social media debut a few months into the relationship. I’m not going to attempt to peg the start of their dating, though. Speculation about high-profile relationships is folly. You can actually add in the futile attempt to figure out if they’re still together. The social media scrub is on, and neither one appears on the other’s feed. Subterfuge to hide, or the 2017 version of a public break? Tough to say.
I will say, however, Drake took major interest in the Gonzales twins. He showed up to watch them play back in November of 2015. The team apparently won by 70 points but he stayed until the end. How about that? I scratch my head and say “hmm” sarcastically.
I should probably also briefly mention Ben Simmons’ social media dispute with his sister. It’s just your typical young kids squawking like children publicly rather than speaking to each other face to face. Ben’s sister claimed he turned his back on her. She also said money doesn’t change people but reveals them. Don’t ask me about the details because I don’t know them. No casual observers do. All they saw was two kids sniping each other from their phone screens. I bet you Ben Simmons’ girlfriend Dylan knows what it’s all about though!
2016: Ben Simmons’ ex-girlfriend Brittany Renner
Back before Dylan, Ben Simmons’ girlfriend was Brittany Renner. She is a famous Instagram personality in her own right. She’s got over 1.5 million followers, and she is hot business. She has a killer body, and is not afraid to show off. She has some very definite thoughts about hair as well. “I believe hair is your pride, a form of art, and should be respected as so”. She offers a discount code for a hair product that she’s hawking. She’s making those Instagram advertising bucks! Can’t fault her for that.
This story broke with a simple picture of Ben Simmons’ girlfriend at an arena entrance. TerezOwens.com was first with the story. You might remember Brittany from October of 2015. At that time, we were talking about her relationship with Colin Kaepernick. The media likes to say she claimed he got her pregnant, but I’m 90% she was just making a joke to get attention. It’s not like she said “I’m filing a lawsuit for child support”. I remember enjoying her sense of humor last year, and she certainly knows how to turn heads. Also, she has her own clothing line, and she consistently reps hair products.
One of Brittany’s favorite social media moves is to turn her bikini upside down so it shows more of her breasts. But that is NOT a complaint. Because, like I said, she knows how to turn heads. But, I’ll be very curious to see how long Ben Simmons’ girlfriend stays attached to him. If I’m totally honest, I think he’ll drop her within a few months. Hey, if he turns out to be not such a big star, maybe he’ll want to marry her! But, she does have a fun personality. She even does video trivia sessions where she asks fans what she was wearing at certain points in her social media timeline. Seems like a clever way to keep people engaged.
