Post her breakup with Ben Simmons earlier this year, it seems that model Kendall Jenner’s name has been tagged along with another budding NBA star.
The United States celebrated its 243rd Independence Day back on the 4th of July, and among the many celebrity pairings cited partaking in the festivities across the nation were Jenner and the LA Lakers’ Kyle Kuzma.
The two were spotted by the paparazzi celebrating the holiday together dressed in all-white on a luxurious yacht near the coast of Malibu, California.

More speculation ensued afterward as Kendall posted a special, Independence Day edition of her monthly show ZAZA World, co-hosted by R&B singer Daniel Caesar, in which she stated that, ‘4th of July is arguably one of my top two favorite holidays…I don’t know why I love it so much. It’s the fireworks and the vibe. I just feel like you should be in love on the 4th of July.’
As aforementioned, Jenner recently called it quits with the Philadelphia 76ers’ Simmons this year due to apparent issues stemming from a distance and busy work schedules. Kuzma, on the other hand, was rumored to have been dating influencer and model Katya Elise Henry until a split took place back in April.
The 23-year-old was thrust into instantaneous spotlight back in 2017 after he bit the bullet of another potentially fantastic final-year college basketball season too, instead, enlist in the NBA Draft for that year.
The gamble paid off massively, as the young power forward was initially the 27th overall pick in the draft for the Brooklyn Nets, before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers, a result far outweighing the expectations attached to Kuzma.
The rumored couple has, of course, not gone public with their relationship just yet, but if visual cues are anything to go by, we might not be far from a public outing, soon.
