Despite remaining extremely private about her relationships in the past, Kendall Jenner seems more willing to be publicly affectionate with Ben Simmons now. She attended the basketball player’s 22nd birthday alongside his family and friends on Friday, sat next to him the whole night and even cuddled up to him after he blew out the candles.

In a video posted by The Shade Room, Kendall can be seen in a black bra-let under a sheer black top, sitting next to Simmons, who is wearing his usual attire of a t-shirt and a basketball cap. Simmons looks surprised at the appearance of the cake, and looks on as the candles are lit. Kendall gazes at her man and laughs at his face before he leans forward to blow out the candles as the crowd sings happy birthday. She then leans over to quickly cuddle him in a small private celebration.

Jenner was first linked to Simmons in May but both of them kept the romance super low-key. Given that she was also romantically linked to Anwar Hadid at the time, it was thought this relationship was not serious. However, the two were often seen all around town and reports suggested they had moved in together temporarily into a rental in Los Angeles.

Since May, the couple have become more public with their romance themselves. They were seen cuddling in the background of videos from Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson’s Fourth of July party. A source described to E!, “Kendall was very happy with Ben, whispering and giggling the entire night. Kendall and Ben were inseparable all night and didn’t leave each other’s side.” They also went on a double date with Khloe and Tristan after the latter couple returned to California.

Earlier this week, the couple were also seen at Drake’s 2018 ESPY’s after-party n West Hollywood. Simmons’s ex-girlfriend, Tinashe, who has recently trashed Jenner on Twitter, was at the same party, but it is unclear whether the three had any kind of a run in. Tinashe did claim last week that Simmons texted her while she was at the same club as him and Kendall.

Neither Kendall nor Ben have commented on their relationship or put each other up on their social medias.
