Monday Morning Gossip, looks like Kendall Jenner and Ben Simmons are going strong. They were spotted all over Philly this weekend. After I first reported on WOGL Friday morning for you to be on the look out for Kendall, she arrived at the airport Friday afternoon.

Wearing the cutest blue track suit. She went to the Sixers game Friday night to cheer on beau Ben Simmons, and they won. The curse is over. Kendall you’re welcomed in Philly anytime, especially since your immersing yourself into Philly culture.
By attending a Drexel BBall game with Ben Simmons on Saturday.

@KendallJenner and @bensimmons leaving Drexel’s BBall game Saturday. What’s crazy is that fan that goes right up to Kendall and grabs a selfie and hugs her #phillygossip After seeing Travis Scott , Kendall and Ben went to @harpcrown ’s Elbow Lane to hang out Saturday night. #Repost @bens.hq ・・・ ben + kendall leaving Drexel University – – – – – #ben #bensimmons #simmons25 #simmons #bensimmons25 #25 #philadelphia76ers #philadelphia #76ers #sixersfans #76ersfan #sixersnation #sixersbasketball #nba #basketball #trusttheprocess #freshprince #sixers #joelembiid #theprocess #jimmybutler #kendalljenner #kendall #bendall #kardashian
Check out that fan who does what fans and their object of desire do these days. He calls out Kendall can I get a selfie, then he goes right in
for it. She obliges, barely missing a step, while Ben goes ahead. And that’s how it’s done, get your selfie, say I love you and let her go. She expects this reaction as she’s grown up on TV and has known this way of life for nearly all of hers.
Later you said hi to fans as you left the Cafe on Dilworth Park and headed to check out the Christmas Tree on the north side of City Hall.
Then you stopped by the Waterfront Cafe for another bite before heading to see Travis Scott at the Wells Fargo Center, with Ben. After the concert you headed to Elbow Lane, below Harp & Crown, the sight of your first Philly date with Ben a few weeks ago, reported first by me on my social media.
@Jezebel for sharing my pain with the world. I don’t have time to actually photograph @KendallJenner cause as the lone paparazzo, I’m also the lone Society Photographer too; As @brianghoward states in this months @phillymag I wear lots of hats here in Philly
Here’s the Jezebel Article on Jenner, Simmons and Moi https://jezebel.com/if-kendall-jenner-is-going-to-drexel-basketball-games-w-1830825741
Yesterday you cheered on Ben at another Sixers game they won, wearing the same track suit you arrived in. Hope that doesn’t mean you’re ready to roll out of town already as you’ve gone through all your packed clothes? We shall see….
Sunday, despite the dismal day, SHAZAM filmed it’s last scene here in Philly. As I wrote in PhillyChitChat on Friday, Shazam is set in Philly, but filmed in Toronto. Billy Batson, a troubled 14-year-old orphan living in Philadelphia, is set up to move into a new foster home – his seventh in a row – with the Vazquez family and their other five foster kids. One day, Billy gets on a subway car and finds himself transported to a different realm, where an ancient wizard gives him the power to transform into a godlike adult superhero by uttering the word “Shazam!” Billy and his new foster brother Freddy Freeman must learn what Billy’s new powers are and how to use them in order to stop the villain Dr. Thaddeus Sivana from wielding powers of his own.
The final scene of the movie was filmed in Philly yesterday all day from 8am til nearly midnight, with more than 200 extras, most from our
area. That is what filming in Philadelphia means, employing our people. Thanks to the Film Tax Credits.
Just before wrapping, the fog finally lifted enough to get the shot of the skyline.
