Ben Simmons at centre of Kendall Jenner controversy

Philly fans are furious that Ben Simmons has rekindled his romance with Kendall Jenner, starting a petition to have her banned from 76ers games.

The Aussie star was rumoured to be dating the Victoria’s Secret model earlier this year, and after things cooled recently they now appear to be back on.

Kendall’s half-sister Khloe Kardashian recently confirmed that they are, in fact, a couple.

Kendall was spotted jokingly booing Khloe’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson during a recent game between Thompson’s Cleveland Cavaliers and Simmons’ Philadelphia 76ers.

Explaining why Kendall was spotted jeering Tristan during the game, Khloe wrote on Twitter: “My sister was watching HER man Play against my man… So of course she’s going to heckle the opposing team.”

But after the Sixers lost to the Cavs with Kendall in attendance, fans want to make sure that doesn’t happen ever again.

They’ve created a petition to keep Jenner from attending another game, and there are already more than 3000 signatures.

The Sixers were the final remaining team in the NBA with an undefeated record at home, and they were playing a team that had exactly zero wins on the road.

Enter Jenner.





While it may not be the latest version the ‘Kardashian Curse’ just yet, that hasn’t stopped fans fuming at Simmons.
