AceShowbiz - Running into your ex can be awkward, especially when you're with your new lover. And that's what happened to Ben Simmons. The basketball player ran into his ex Tinashe when he hung out with rumored girlfriend Kendall Jenner at Delilah on Thursday night, July 5.
In a video which has been circulated online, Ben and the 22-year-old model were spotted leaving together at nearly 01:00 A.M., keeping a low profile by covering their faces from the camera. Meanwhile, the "No Drama" hitmaker was all smiles when she was spotted leaving the club moments later.
She was clearly in a good mood as she shared to TMZ some insights of what happened inside the club. It turns out Ben was texting while he was there with Kendall. Ouch! "I did [see them inside]. He's texting me. What the hell? What's he doing?! What an idiot!" she told the news outlet. When asked whether she knew that her ex-boyfriend only did it for fame, she quickly agreed before driving off.
Sources close to the Australian athlete told the site that Tinashe was lying to create tension. It is also said that Ben called her out in the morning after watching the video. She allegedly admitted to him that she did make up the story.
Tinashe's relationship with Ben was short-lived. The former couple only dated from March until May of this year, with her brother accusing the athlete of cheating on the singer with Kendall. "Never met you before in my life, days after u break my sis heart u do this... people all lied on her talking fake news about my sis *doing kardashian s**t * u cheat on her w a Jenner," Kudzai tweeted shortly after rumors of Ben and the "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star dating sparked.
