Kendall Jenner made headlines this week for her reported new fling with Ben Simmons, a 21-year-old Melbourne-born basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers.

But only a day after the unexpected couple was announced, it's been revealed Simmons possibly started seeing Kendall while he was still in a relationship — with pop musician Tinashe. DRAMA.

While Page Six said the couple had been seeing each other for a "few weeks" in their original report, Tinashe's 19-year-old brother Kudzai Kachingwe weighed in on Kendall and Ben's new relationship via Twitter, and had no hesitation in throwing a cheating accusation at Ben.

"Never met you before in my life. Days after u break my sis heart u do this... ppl all lied on her talking fake news about my sis doing Kardashian shit, u cheat on her w a Jenner..."

When one Twitter user replied on the Tweet thread to ask "Why does it matter?", Kachingwe revealed that Ben and Tinashe only broke up on Sunday — meaning that if Ben and Kendall are an item, that Ben would've definitely been two-timing.

"They 'broke up' Sunday my guy... u literally don't know anything, stay quiet about this."

Tinashe's response to the breakup and cheating rumours? A shady Instagram post, letting Ben know exactly what he's missing (simply captioned "I set the bar, I'm the fuckin' bar").

Simmons isn't the first NBA player that Kendall has shacked up with. She reportedly started dating Detroit Pistons player Blake Griffin in August last year, with the relationship drawing to a close in late April. And, despite an abundance of swirling rumours, Kendall rarely ever actually confirms her relationships to the media — telling American Vogue in March "I like my private life."

"I would always go that extra mile to be low-key with guys, sneaking around all the time. You don't want to look, like, crazy."

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star even dispelled the ridiculous rumours surrounding her sexuality, telling Vogue "I'm not gay. I have literally nothing to hide... I would never hide something like that."
