It looks like Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons is finally speaking about his relationship with Kendall Jenner — and how it’s affected his life.

While speaking to Ten Play’s “The Project” on Friday, the 22-year-old Rookie of the Year said he’s receiving more media attention, and while he tries not to let it bother him, it can be “a little annoying.”

“It is what it is,” the Australian NBA star told host Waleed Aly when asked how he handles all the paparazzi.

“It just depends who you hang, what circles you're in. But for me, to hang out and chill. I never tried to let that bother me or anybody else bother what I do,” Simmons added.

Simmons also opened up about the frustrations of knowing people are photographing his every move.

“I know every time I step out of the house, in America, or the word, somebody's watching,” he said. “Somebody's got a phone, has a camera and what I do could be out there.”

On Thursday, Simmons spoke to The Daily Telegraph, where he appeared to confirm his relationship with Jenner by saying things were “going great.”

Simmons was recently photographed on vacation in Mexico with Jenner, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson.
