We’re in the middle of football season, and by that I mean Taylor Swift has been publicly dating an NFL guy for a month. And now it appears that another woman whose dating life is often the subject of wild speculation is also heading into the end zone: Kim Kardashian. Pete Davidson’s most famous ex is rumored to be dating Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.
Kim and OBJ were first linked to each other – at least in gossip – in September several Points of sale claimed they were “casually hanging out,” but only in groups with mutual friends. (Beckham and his ex-girlfriend Lauren Wood, who have a son together, separated (Sometime earlier this year.) On Monday, Kim sparked another flood of rumors after she showed off her face at Beckham’s 31st birthday party in New York.
Still, no one seems to suspect that these frequent meetings are anything but friendly. E! News claimed in September that Kim is “not seriously dating anyone at the moment” and that she and OBJ simply have “a lot of friends in common.” Her presence at OBJ’s birthday party doesn’t exactly suggest a particularly flirtatious nature either – in fact, they’ve been in the same social circle for years, and she was in his circle 30th birthday last year, to. Additionally, a source said: “Page Six” that they spent the whole night chatting with the CEO of a sporting goods company. Doesn’t sound like much of a date to me, but neither is ice cream at Rite Aid. Maybe a field appearance at the M&T Bank Stadium lies somewhere in our future?
