Jeremy Lin is reportedly tied to Kim Kardashian. Kimmy might officially be the pro-athlete welcome wagon, and also happens to run an empire of mind-numbing reality TV shows, now really wants to get her Linsanity on.
The report comes from Media Take Out and should be taken with a big fat grain of salt. Regardless, it says that Kim Kardashian’s public relations people think it would be a grand idea for the 31-year-old to be seen with the biggest star on the planet right now. Of course, it would be good for her.
Rumor on the street is that a date is being set up between the two polar opposite personalities. The report cites a Kardashian friend who talks about a supposed future date. She thinks [Jeremy] is cute, and she’s good friend’s with [Jeremy’s teammate Carmelo Anthony’s wife] Lala. It’s going to be a double date.
This rumor makes me sad, but there is hope that it is completely and utterly false (Kim’s publicist recently denied that any date was in order), which makes me happy. Consider that Reggie Bush is showing Kardashian the Heisman pose right now. Rumors that the two were rekindling their past love were rampant earlier this week. However, Bush has since put a stop to all that, as TMZ reports. The report states Bush was beyond assertive that he is not back with Kardashian, and after Kris Humphries’ debacle, I don’t blame him. If athletes want to keep any shred of dignity and positive image, they stay away from Kardashian, who is all about her image and the family brand. You have to remember that you are only ever a bit player in the bigger storyline of them ruling the airwaves. Lin is just nice enough to accommodate Kardashian, and that scares me. Please, Jeremy Lin, stay clear of Kim Kardashian.
