Much attention has been paid — throughout this NBA season — to Kendall Jenner’s many visits to the Wells Fargo Center. There, she watches her boyfriend, Ben Simmons, play for the Philadelphia 76ers.
At first, some Sixers fans objected to her presence there, with one even launching a petition to get her banned from the arena. But later in the year, fans began to notice that the Sixers had a dominant winning record following games attended by Jenner.
Many have also been paying attention to Jenner’s sartorial choices when attending Simmons’ games. Last month, Jenner told Vogue that she likes to dress “sleeker” while attending basketball games. “I like pulling my hair back; I like having a tiny little top on, whether it’s a turtleneck or just something small,” she said.
At Tuesday night’s game, Jenner changed things up dramatically. Instead of exclusive couture, Jenner wore a blue Sixers jersey to the game.
According to Page Six, Jenner wore Simmons’ blue number 25 jersey to the basketball game, complete with a special patch bearing her nickname of “Kenny.” The outfit also included, per the newspaper, “a blue sweatshirt with white bleach stains, white carpenter pants, white booties and a small purse.”
Jenner and Simmons weren’t quite matching on Tuesday night, as the Sixers played in their red home jerseys while Jenner was in blue.
Philadelphia defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 106-99, per ESPN.com, with Simmons scoring 26 points and grabbing 10 rebounds. Simmons’ 26 points tied Cleveland’s Collin Sexton for top honors. The game between the lowly Cavs and the contending 76ers was much closer than expected, but Philadelphia pulled off the victory. They remain the third seed in the Eastern Conference, were the playoffs to start today.
Tristan Thompson — the former partner of Jenner’s sister, Khloe Kardashian — plays for Cleveland, but did not play in Tuesday’s game. Simmons and Thompson had words when the teams played in November.
Per PhillyChitChat, Jenner and Simmons were spotted together over the weekend in suburban Cherry Hill, New Jersey, where the couple were seen shopping for a vacuum cleaner. They then shared dinner at the Grand Lux Cafe in the Cherry Hill Mall, and then traveled to Top Golf in nearby Mt. Laurel. There, they took in a birthday party for Simmons’ brother.
