Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner brought in the year 2020 together, partying in Philadelphia. The duo walked into the Attico rooftop restaurant at around 11.30 pm that Simmons had rented out to ring in the New Year. 

Just a few weeks ago, Jenner was seen in the Wells Fargo Centre, when Simmons defeated the New Orleans Pelicans with his team on December 13.

The couple has been in an on-and-off kind-of relationship since the time they started seeing each. As per US Weekly, the duo began dating casually back in May of 2018. However, soon after, the 24-year-old supermodel and 23-year-old NBA star split apart.

The couple then patched up in November 2018 but drifted apart once again in May 2019.

Amidst the on-and-off dating status, Jenner was reportedly also seen making out with Gigi and Bella Hadid’s younger brother, Anwar Hadid. 

According to a source, Jenner and Simmons were getting serious for one another this year when they cooled things up once again. Furthermore, the source said that they have been busy working on their projects lately. Besides, they are well aware of their youth and are having fun, the source added.

Therefore, getting to a conclusion about the duo is fairly tough.

Recently, Jenner talked to Vogue about her relationship after drifting away from Simmons. She stated that she saw her sister’s dealing in her personal life and learned for better.

Besides, she said that some of her relationships were precious and sacred and therefore, she doesn’t want people’s attention towards them. She stated how she believes that the public view has the power to make one’s relationship go haywire. 

Jenner further added that relationships are usually uncertain and hence, she doesn’t wish to seek attention to things unless she is sure. Relationships are about two people, and the involvement of others is unfair.

However, when asked about engagement, Jenner replied with a maybe, although not recently but in the future.

(Reuters) – Eleven-year-old skateboarder Sky Brown, who is hoping to become Britain’s youngest Olympian next year, fractured her skull and broke bones in her left hand after falling from a ramp during a training session in California.

Brown posted a video of the accident on Instagram and reassured supporters that she was doing fine and was going to work even harder when she returns.

“I don’t usually post (videos of) my falls or talk about them… but this was my worst fall. I just want everyone to know that it’s ok, don’t worry, I’m ok,” she said.

“I’m going to push boundaries for girls with my skating and surfing. I’m going for gold in 2021 and nothing will stop me.”

The BBC reported that Brown was taken to hospital by helicopter and was unresponsive on arrival but is expected to make a complete recovery.

“Sky landed head-first off a ramp on her hand,” her father Stewart was quoted as saying by the BBC.

“When she first came to hospital, everyone was fearful for her life… Sky had the gnarliest fall she’s ever had and is lucky to be alive… (she) remains positive and strong, the whole medical team is shocked to see her positivity.”

At the 2021 Tokyo Games, Brown is hoping to eclipse the record set by swimmer Margery Hinton, who was 13 years and 43 days old when she competed at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam.

Five sports, including baseball, skateboarding and surfing, will feature in Tokyo as part of the International Olympic Committee’s revamp of the Games programme to attract younger audiences.

Celtics' Poirier joins Floyd protests with team mates

PARIS (Reuters) – Celtics center Vincent Poirier says he took part in a protest with NBA team mates Marcus Smart and Enes Kanter in Boston on Sunday over the killing of George Floyd, an unarmed black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

“Even as someone who is white this must concern me,” Poirier told French sports daily L’Equipe on Tuesday.

“It touches me since I have black team mates, black friends, my wife is of mixed race.

“I can walk the streets freely and I want it to be the case for everyone. It bothers me that it’s not the case,” the Frenchman added.

Video footage showed a white Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the neck of Floyd, 46, for nearly nine minutes before he died on May 25, triggering outrage and protests across the United States.

Poirier added that there had been similar issues in France, highlighting the case of 24-year-old black man Adama Traore, who died in 2016 while being driven to a police station following his arrest over an altercation.

The circumstances of Traore’s death are still under investigation by justice authorities.

Poirier, who signed for the Celtics in 2019, said he wanted to use his standing in the sports world to bring attention to such issues.

“At the time of Adama Traore, I did not have this recognition but now that I have it, I try to use it. The fact that I play for Celtics has an extra impact,” he said.
