Reality TV star and business mogul Kim Kardashian is confirmed to be dating Odell Beckham Jr. after hiding their romance for months.

According to a report, the new couple hid the romance to avoid "homewrecker" accusations and a negative reaction from ex-husband Kanye West. West heavily bullied Kim's ex-boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on various social media during their brief relationship.

Since rumors began of Kim and Odell's relationship in September 2023, they've attended various events together, including his birthday party and Jay-Z's star-studded pre-Grammy party.

Kim Kardashian has a new beau, and it's none other than NFL star Odell Beckham Jr.

Insiders have revealed to the Daily Mail that the couple have been dating secretly for months. They reportedly kept their romance secret because of Odell's son and to avoid a negative reaction from the SKIMS founder's ex-husband, Kanye West.

Rumors about their romance have been going on since September 2023, and now it's confirmed that they're in an exclusive relationship.

The source told the news outlet, "Kim has been romantically involved with Odell since last summer and thought she had managed to keep it under wraps. She is not seeing anyone else right now - at least not that her close friends know of."

The New Couple Kept Their Romance Secret

The insider explained that the reality tv star has been extremely private about her romance life and hid her relationship with Odell to avoid any labels that she's a "homewrecker."

This is because the couple started spending time together after he split from longtime girlfriend Lauren "LoLo" Wood, the mother of his son, Zydn.

The source said, "Kim really wanted to keep this romance private for two reasons. One is that he has a one-year-old son with his ex-Lauren Woods. They both wanted to avoid any speculation that he left Lauren for Kim – branding Kim a homewrecker."

Another reason Kim and Odell hid their romance was West, with whom she shares four kids: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

The source said, "The second reason is to avoid the backlash from Kanye. After what Kanye put Pete Davidson through, Kim wants to avoid that at all costs. It is only a matter of time now before Kanye says something publicly, but he has no solid proof."

Kim and West were married for about seven years before finally divorcing in November 2022, and a month later, he married Bianca Censori. After their split, Kim dated comedian and actor Pete Davidson, which triggered heavy online bullying from West.

The "Good Morning" rapper repeatedly mocked Davidson's appearance on social media and nicknamed him "Skete."

When Kim and the comedian eventually split in August 2022, West posted a fake New York Times Newspaper photo with the headline "Skete Davidson dead at age 28."

It's reportedly because of this heavy online bullying that Kim and Odell hid their relationship because they didn't want to trigger West into another online rant and attack against the NFL star.
