According to sources, Kim Kardashian and NFL player Odell Beckham Jr. are in an exclusive relationship. The couple has been trying to keep their romance under wraps out of respect for Beckham’s son and to avoid any backlash from Kanye West.
Kardashian, who is 43 years old, and Beckham, who is 31, were first linked publicly in September 2023 when rumors began to circulate about a possible connection between the two. Now, it seems that they have taken their relationship to the next level and are only seeing each other.
“Kim has been romantically involved with Odell since last summer and thought she had managed to keep it under wraps,” a source told DailyMail. “She is not seeing anyone else right now – at least not that her close friends know of.”
The couple have been making a pact to keep their love private, to avoid any false speculation that Kim is a ‘homewrecker’.
After nearly four years together, Odell Beckham Jr. and Lauren Wood have decided to part ways. The breakup was confirmed in September 2023, around the same time that sources revealed Kim Kardashian is currently “hanging out” with the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver.
Beckham and Wood initially made their relationship public in November 2019, and they later welcomed their son, Zydn, in February 2022.
While the exact timing of their split remains unclear, it seems their romantic journey has reached its end.
The source continued, “Kim really wanted to keep this romance private for two reasons One is that he has a one-year-old son with his ex Lauren Woods. They both wanted to avoid any speculation that he left Lauren for Kim – branding Kim a homewrecker”.
According to the source, another significant concern for the new couple is Kim’s ex-husband, Kanye West, who is known for his outspoken nature. Kim and Kanye have four children together: North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.
“The second reason is to avoid the backlash from Kanye. After what Kanye put Pete Davidson through, Kim wants to avoid that at all costs. It is only a matter of time now before Kanye says something publicly, but he has no solid proof,” source added.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married for a span of seven years until their divorce was officially concluded in November 2022. Interestingly, just a month after their divorce, Kanye tied the knot with his current wife, Bianca.
After her split from Kanye, Kim Kardashian was publicly linked to comedian Pete Davidson. During this time, Kanye made headlines for his derogatory comments about Davidson’s appearance and referred to him as ‘Skete’.
When Kim and Pete broke up in August 2022, Kanye posted a fake New York Times newspaper on Instagram with the headline ‘Skete Davidson dead at age 28’.
Following reports linking Kim Kardashian and Odell Beckham Jr. last September, Kim attended his 31st birthday party in November.
She was seen arriving with her younger sister, Khloe Kardashian, who reportedly had a brief fling with Odell back in 2016.
Odell is no stranger to the Kardashian-Jenner family, having worked with Kim’s half-sister Kendall Jenner on the Moon toothpaste campaign in 2021.
Kim Kardashian and Odell Beckham Jr. were both present at a pre-Grammy party last week. TMZ claimed that the two were seen putting on an amorous display at the event.
The star-studded event, hosted by Jay-Z at the exclusive Bird Streets club, also featured other celebrity guests like Lil Uzi Vert and Kris Jenner’s boyfriend, Corey Gamble.
