Kim Kardashian was caught by the paparazzi with her new boyfriend, football player Odell Beckham Jr., who briefly dated her sister Chloe in the past.
Reporters caught the couple at The Wynn hotel in Las Vegas. Judging by their clothing, Kim and Odell were returning from the upcoming Super Bowl party for Michael Rubin, the CEO of Fanatics, the world's leading supplier of licensed sporting goods.
The Daily Mail published a video in which the lovers walk at a close distance from each other, accompanied by security. Kim is wearing dark brown bell-bottoms, a backless top and a cowboy hat, while Beckham is wearing black and white pants and a leather jacket. These were the outfits they wore at the party.
Kim and Odella started talking about their romance last fall after they were spotted together at parties several times. However, representatives of the couple then denied the rumors. A Daily Mail source reported that the affair between the athlete and the TV star began in the summer, but Kim tried to hide it from public attention for several reasons. Firstly, she did not want to be branded a “family destroyer”, because just shortly before the affair with her, Odell broke up with his girlfriend Lauren Wood, with whom he has a one-year-old son. Moreover, the couple announced their breakup only in September.
“They both wanted to avoid speculation that Odell left Lauren for Kim,” the insider said. The second reason, he said, was a desire to avoid confrontations with Kanye West: “After everything Kanye put Pete Davidson through, Kim wanted to avoid a repeat of that at all costs.”
Also, various sources claim that “everything is serious” between Kim and Odell; they have been going on dates only with each other for a long time, but do not yet want to announce their romance to the whole world. Partly because Beckham is trying to lead a more private lifestyle, and with Kim he risks becoming a target for the media.
