Kim Kardashian and her new boyfriend, Odell Beckham Jr., were seen together for the first time since they exclusively publicized their budding romance while at The Wynn in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The SKIMS founder, 43, who recently wore Balenciaga while at her son Saint’s basketball game, was seen being guided through the luxury hotel with the NFL player, 31, close in front of her.
Relationship speculation began to surface when the mother of four and the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver were first publicly linked in September 2023.
Kim was dressed to impress in a dark brown backless top that contained a plunging neckline at the front for a sultry touch.
The reality star donned flared brown pants that had a hem that hid the shoes she had paired with the stylish look.
She placed a black hat on top of her head and partially covered her dark brunette locks that fell to her shoulders.
Odell was seen wearing a pair of black and white pants, as well as a matching leather jacket.
Underneath, the sports star added a plain white t-shirt and completed her look with a pair of black shoes that had a thick sole on the bottom.
The couple’s outing ahead of Super Bowl LVIII comes shortly after Kardashian and Beckham Jr. exclusively revealed their romance after they began dating last summer.
A source told DailyMail.com on Friday: ‘Kim has been romantically involved with Odell since last summer and thought she had managed to keep it a secret. She is not dating anyone else at the moment, at least not that her closest friends know.
According to the source, both Kardashian and Beckham Jr., who are rumored to be attending the Super Bowl together, made the decision to remain private to avoid rumors that the SKIMS founder was a “homewrecker.”
The two stars initially began dating shortly after the soccer player’s split from girlfriend Lauren ‘LoLo’ Wood, which was announced in September last year. The former couple shares one-year-old son Zydn.
‘Kim really wanted to keep this romance private for two reasons. One is that she has a one-year-old son with her ex Lauren Woods.
“They both wanted to avoid any speculation that he left Lauren for Kim, calling Kim a homewrecker,” the source continued.
‘The second reason is to avoid Kanye’s backlash. After what Kanye put Pete Davidson through, Kim wants to avoid that at all costs. It’s only a matter of time before Kanye says something publicly, but he has no solid evidence.
It comes after a separate source said Us weekly As of earlier this week, Kim and Odell are “getting serious” but are still keeping their budding romance out of the spotlight.
“Odell’s personality is much more private than Kardashian’s,” the source informed the publication.
The source explained that the Baltimore Ravens wide receiver is more “low-key, while Kim is more used to being the center of attention” and added that they are “trying to figure out the next steps” regarding their romance.
More recently, Kim and Odell were rumored to have attended the same pre-Grammy party earlier this month that was hosted by Jay-Z at the Birds Street Club.
Another informant recently said Entertainment tonight, ‘Things have continued to heat up between Kim and Odell. They like each other and get along well.
‘Odell likes to keep a low profile and Kim appreciates that. They have been friends for a long time and naturally get along well with each other. Things are easy between them and he doesn’t seek attention or be the center of attention.
The reality star’s younger sister Khloe was also reportedly linked to Odell in 2016, when the couple briefly dated.
Earlier on Saturday, both Kim and Odell attended Michael Rubin’s Fanatics Super Bowl party at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. However, the two were not photographed together at the event.
The television personality was seen sporting the same ensemble while posing for a memorable photo with her close friend, La La Anthony, who was also dressed for the fun occasion.
Beckham Jr. also stopped for a quick solo photoshoot upon arriving at the venue while showing off his stylish appearance.
While appearing on the podcast called, On purpose with Jay ShettyIn May of last year, Kim opened up about dating and her perspective on love.
“I think I’ll always be a hopeless romantic and I always want to be in love and I definitely love sharing my life with someone and I love creating a life with someone,” she said.
“If I can analyze everything I did wrong and try not to make the same mistakes and really take my time, I think it has to be different for me.”
The mother of four also opened up about finding someone in the future, revealing, “I’ll definitely take my time.”
The media personality explained that there are several ‘factors’ to take into account, ‘especially when you have children, and being aware of the people who come into your life.’
The SKIMS founder notably shares North, 10, Saint, eight, Chicago, six, and Psalm, four, with ex-husband Kanye West.
