Philadelphia 76ers’ Owner is a Fan of Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons’ Friendship Jason Cordner December 17, 2018 Source Sports | News, Highlights and Interviews Kendall Jenner is being called a bad luck charm for boyfriend Ben Simmon’s NBA team, the Philadelphia 76ers. However, the team’s co-owner, Michael Rubin believes she is a great influence on him. I think Kendall’s awesome,” he said in a recent interview with Business Insider. “I’ve spent a bunch of time with her. I was with Kendall a few days ago, and Kendall insisted on going home and getting a good night’s sleep when Ben wanted to stay out for a late dinner. So Kendall’s been a great influence on him.” Some Philadelphia fans aren’t entirely happy about the arrangement. After the team lost a home game against the Cavs, someone blamed the loss on Jenner’s presence and made a petition to ban her from Wells Fargo Arena. Unlike her sisters, it’s hard to keep tabs on who the highest-paid model in the world is dating. She’s not only secretive, but her flings tend to be less serious. “She’s being very private about her relationship with Ben. Kendall’s really different from her sisters in that sense,” a source close to Jenner said. “She honestly doesn’t want people talking about who she’s dating and is very protective of her personal life.” Why Kendall isn’t as flashy or craving attention like her sisters, she is still part of that Kardashian cure that has doomed so many athletes in the past.
