AceShowbiz - Ben Simmons proves that he's just like the rest of us. The 22-year-old NBA star's reaction to his on-and-off flame Kendall Jenner's latest Instagram post is definitely something that many people find extremely relatable.
On Wednesday night, December 26, the eldest Jenner sibling took to the photo-sharing platform to treat her 100 million followers to a black-and-white photo of her throwing a smoldering gaze at the camera. The sultry snap, which gained almost 3 million likes as of now, drove a slew of fellow celebrities to comment and among them was thirsty Ben.
Ben could be seen leaving a flirty comment on the pic with two drooling face emojis. He didn't even need words to express his feelings but everyone knows what's exactly he's trying to say.
Following the flirty comment, it seems like Kendall decided to play along with Ben. The 23-year-old took to Instagram Stories to flaunt her amazing bod. In a racy video, she slipped into tiny tank top and white lace thong as she zoomed in so that her abs, toned legs and impossibly slim waist were on full display.
The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star and the Philadelphia 76ers player were first linked earlier this summer. The two, who have yet to confirm their relationship, were frequently spotted canoodling and even going on vacation together. They were hit with breakup rumors though as the model was seen spending time with Anwar Hadid for quiet some time.
But now that they appear to get back together, a source reveals to HollywoodLife.com that "things are definitely getting serious between Kendall and Ben, and she's trying her hardest to not let that freak her out."
"Kendall has always had it in her mind that she doesn't want to get into a serious relationship in her early twenties, she wants to spend that time focusing on her career, and so she's always shied away from any kind of exclusive relationship," the source continues. "But, it's different with Ben, and no matter how much she's tried to stop herself from falling for him she has, and hard."
