Ben Simmons beefing up security team due to ex-girlfriend troubles?

Ben Simmons

Ben Simmons has fully embraced the celebrity lifestyle now that his NBA career has taken off, and he may be finding out the hard way that relationships can be more trouble than they’re worth.

There have been rumors for months that Simmons is seeing Kendall Jenner, and apparently that isn’t sitting well with popular R&B singer Tinashe, who dated Simmons earlier in the year. According to a report from TMZ, Simmons is seriously considering beefing up his personal security team because he thinks Tinashe is harassing him and Jenner.

Here’s more:

Sources close to Simmons tell us … Tinashe’s been suspiciously popping up regularly at places he goes with Kendall … way past the point of coincidence. You’ll remember, the singer showed up at Delilah Thursday, and a couple weeks prior she surfaced at Poppy in WeHo when Ben was there.

We’re told 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.

Our sources say Ben thinks she’s become so obsessive he doesn’t want to take chances … especially because of Kendall, and that’s why he’s talking about hiring extra muscle.

At this point, it’s almost hard to believe Simmons is only 21. Does it get more Hollywood than needing extra security because you angered your R&B singer ex-girlfriend by dating a member of the Jenner/Kardashian clan? Simmons has come a long way from the kid we thought was just shooting his shot with a funny Instagram comment he made on Tinashe’s page.

Report: Aaron Hernandez’s ex-fiancee has baby with amateur boxer

Shayanna Jenkins, the former fiancee of Aaron Hernandez, announced last month that she was pregnant and expecting a baby girl. The baby was reportedly born a little over a week ago, and some information has surfaced about who the father is.

TMZ reports that Jenkins gave birth to a healthy baby girl on June 16 in Rhode Island. Sources told the gossip publication that the father is Dino Guilmette, an amateur boxer from Providence.

Hernandez committed suicide in his prison cell in April 2017, but there were still rumors that the former Patriots tight end may have had his sperm frozen before taking his own life. That was apparently not the case. He and Jenkins already have a daughter together.

Jenkins stood by Hernandez through both of his murder trials and has seemingly been in denial about the way he died.

Britt McHenry dating controversial tennis player Tennys Sandgren

Britt McHenry has tried to make a living out of creating controversy since she was laid off by ESPN, so it makes sense that she would date a professional athlete who is known for doing the same.

If her recent Instagram activity is any indication, McHenry is in a relationship with pro tennis player Tennys Sandgren. McHenry was in France with Sandgren when the No. 57-ranked player was competing in the French Open, and she shared another photo of the two over the weekend.

As The Big Lead reminds us, Sandgren came under scrutiny when he advanced to the Australian Open quarterfinals back in January and people called attention to all of the far-right conspiracy theories he has supported on Twitter.

Serena Williams was the most prominent voice from the tennis community to call out Sandgren.

Sandgren later criticized the media for its “sensationlist coverage” of him and decision to “perpetuate propaganda machines instead of researching information.”

If you have heard her views on Colin Kaepernick and national anthem protests, you know that McHenry and Sandgren seem like a perfect match.

Danny Amendola, Olivia Culpo appear to have gotten back together

Danny Amendola girlfriend

It has been just over two months since Olivia Culpo confirmed she had broken up with NFL wide receiver Danny Amendola, but it appears the couple has gotten back together — for at least a weekend.

TMZ shared some photos that show Amendola and Culpo standing next to each other at a wedding over the weekend, and sources told the publication that the two were “kissing, hugging, and hand-holding” at various points throughout the night. Amendola was part of the wedding party and Culpo went as his date.

Culpo seemed genuinely heartbroken when revealing that she had split with Amendola back in May. The actress and model was very public with her support of Amendola during the New England Patriots’ run to the Super Bowl last year. Culpo is from Rhode Island, and Amendola left the Patriots in free agency this offseason and signed with the Miami Dolphins.

Social media activity is what initially tipped people off about the Amendola-Culpo split. It’s possible the two simply went as dates to a wedding and are not back together, but time will tell.

Ben Simmons reportedly dating Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner has gone from one NBA player to another, according to a report.

Page Six reports that Jenner is dating emerging Philadelphia 76ers youngster Ben Simmons. They say the two have been dating for a few weeks. Philly’s season came to an end after a loss to the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference semifinals on May 9, which has given Simmons plenty of time off since.

According to Page Six, the two were out together in Los Angeles this week and in New York last week.

Simmons, 21, was the No. 1 draft pick in 2016 and is a leading contender for Rookie of the Year.

Before Simmons, the 22-year-old dated Blake Griffin. She has also been linked to other basketball players on the Lakers.

Olivia Munn discusses Aaron Rodgers’ family problems

Aaron Rodgers Olivia Munn Dubsmash

Olivia Munn was often publicly blamed for coming between Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers quarterback’s family, but Munn says that wasn’t entirely the case.

Munn, who broke up with Rodgers a year ago, says Rodgers was experiencing family problems even before the two met. The actress discussed Rodgers’ family issues during an appearance on “Andy Cohen Live” on Wednesday.

“I met one brother (Jordan). I was friendly with Jordan. I met the parents only a couple times,” Munn said. “Before he and I started dating, he hadn’t spoken the parents and one brother for like eight months before we started dating.”

Munn says she encouraged Rodgers to reach out to his parents to try and repair the relationship. She says the parents started coming out to Wisconsin in 2014, but things went badly from there.

Munn also has a theory for the issues between Rodgers and his family. She thinks that some of the issues stem from members of the family not being able to handle Rodgers’ fame and success as an athlete because they had dreams of playing professional sports.

“There’s a lot of complications. I don’t think either side of the road is clean. It’s not OK when you try to stand on someone’s shoulders and try to throw dirt in their face, which is what I think they did with him,” she said.

Rodgers is now dating former race car driver Danica Patrick. Munn says the two don’t really keep in touch. At the time they broke up, one report said that family drama was the reason for the breakup. A story two years ago also suggested that Rodgers’ family did not like Munn.

Nikki Bella does not rule out getting back together with John Cena

John Cena proposes

John Cena has made it known publicly that he desperately wants to get back together with Nikki Bella, and his former fiancee is not quite ready to rule it out.

Cena said when he and Bella were dating that he did not want to have children, and that is one of the reasons their relationship fell apart. While she admits she initially thought Cena was saying he changed his mind about having kids just because he wants her back, Nikki told TMZ this week that she now believes the 16-time champion is being sincere.

“I believe 100 percent he wants kids,” she said. “It makes me want to run back and jump into his arms.”

Nikki said she thought Cena was just telling her what she wanted to hear prior to this week, but she apparently changed her mind after he poured his heart out in a TV interview. She also expressed frustration over people saying their relationship and breakup was a reality TV stunt.

“I care about him and love him a lot,” Bella said. “A lot of people get married for publicity. I’m not like those reality show people. I don’t want to be hesitant. I want to do what my heart says.”

Cena and Nikki were together for more than five years, and their proposal was even tied into the biggest WWE event of the year. While Bella says the wedding is still off at the moment, it sounds like the breakup is less than final.
