He’s believed to have come across comments from fans who have urged him to keep his distance from the Kardashians, saying they have a track record of ruining the career of every athlete they date.
But the 23-year-old, who suffered a lower back injury during a Feb. 22 game against the Milwaukee Bucks, couldn’t care less about no “Kardashian curse,” a source revealed.
According to Hollywood Life, Simmons will have at least two weeks of recovery time before he could potentially start playing basketball again, and he’s hoping Kendall will be by his side to help him make a speedy recuperation.
“Ben has no idea if people are claiming his injury is due to any type of Kardashian curse but he wants to stay away from any of that nonsense at all costs,” a source explained.
The couple, who’ve shared an on-again, off-again romance for the past two years, is said to be in a really good place as far as their romance is concerned.
When Ben suffered his back injury, Kendall was still busy modeling in Europe, after having just closed Versace’s fashion show in Milan, so the 24-year-old couldn’t wait to hop on a plane back home to be reunited with her boyfriend.
Simmons is said to be taking a break from social media so that he can focus all of his attention on making a fast recovery.
But his time off from the NBA would also give him a chance to spend some time with Kendall.
“He is putting much of all of his focus on getting healthy and if Kendall is there for him in his recovery, then even better, because he is paying zero attention to the Kardashian curse that fans are throwing out there,” a source continued.
When the couple first split last summer, it was said that their hectic schedules kept them from seeing one another for weeks at a time, which ultimately led to an unsurprising split.
And even though Ben and Kendall are still kept apart from one another now and then, they’ve found their ways to make up for the lost time.
On Feb. 2, the couple enjoyed a date night at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami to catch the Super Bowl LIV.
Prior, Kendall and Ben had made several outings together in New York City and were also believed to have spent New Year’s Eve together.
It’s fair to say that these two are putting in the effort to spend as much time together before they are separated again for a lengthy period.
So far, things appear to be working well for the two.
