Eiza González Has Reportedly Been Dating NBA Star Ben Simmons "For a Few Weeks"
Eiza González reportedly has a new man in her life following her split from Jason Momoa. According to People, the star is moving on with Kendall Jenner's ex, Ben Simmons. The two have been spotted out together recently, and they've reportedly been dating "for a few weeks."
Even though González and Simmons's relationship is fairly new, the actor — who you might recognize from "Baby Driver" and Justin Timberlake's "Supplies" music video — isn't new to dating men in the spotlight. From actors to musicians, it's clear that González has a type: attractive! Over the years, she's been linked Calvin Harris, Liam Hemsworth, Maluma, Cristiano Ronaldo, and most recently, Momoa. Let's take a walk down memory lane and look at González's past loves.
González dated the Brazilian businessman from 2011 to 2013. In August 2013, the actor confirmed on social media that she was single again, revealing that she had been single "for over a month." A few months later, an audio recording was released in which González could apparently be heard admitting that she cheated on Díaz with his brother, Jorge. Her rep later shot down the claim to People en Español, saying that the recording had been altered.
After ending his engagement with Miley Cyrus, Hemsworth moved on with González, and the two were spotted making out in LA just days after Cyrus announced their split. That same month, they were also seen partying at a Las Vegas nightclub. It's unclear when these two split, but Hemsworth ended up reconciling with Cyrus in 2016 and González refused to discuss the relationship. "I don't think it's necessary," she explained to Latina Magazine in May 2017. "I think that your life as a public person is already so exposed. I'm being linked to people because it's my environment. It's like your school. We know each other. It's people I surround myself with. I don't know why it's such a big thing."
González struck up a romance with the actor after meeting on the set of their show "From Dusk Till Dawn." The two dated for almost a year between 2014 and 2015. It's unclear what went wrong, but it looks like they're still on good terms since they're still following each other on Instagram.
González was linked to the Portuguese soccer player in July 2016 when they were spotted together in Ibiza. That same month, she also attended one of his matches in Paris. While neither González nor Ronaldo ever addressed the speculation, the Manchester United star has since moved on with Spanish model Georgina Rodriguez.
In September 2016, the actress and the DJ generated dating rumors when they were spotted walking arm in arm in LA. Despite their sweet PDA, E! News later shot down reports that they were a couple, saying that Harris was reportedly just having fun and "living the single life" following his breakup from Taylor Swift. "He is not in an exclusive relationship at the moment," a source told the publication at the time. "He is not taking anything too seriously. He is still hanging out with Tinashe and is talking to Eiza."
González and the Colombian singer sparked romance rumors in July 2017 when Maluma joined González at a nightclub in LA after she apparently expressed interest in meeting him because she loves his music. The following month, the two were spotted getting hot and heavy at LA's Avenue nightclub. According to TVNotas, it was "nothing serious" because their work schedules made it difficult for them to have a relationship.
González romanced the "Unsolved" star following his split from Fergie. According to Us Weekly, the couple met at a party after Jennifer Lopez's pre-Super Bowl show in Minneapolis, MN. "They drank and partied together until very late," a source told the publication. "After, Josh reached out to a mutual friend and asked for Eiza's number." The two had reportedly been "FaceTiming and texting nonstop," and Duhamel told González that "he's never met anyone like her before." The pair eventually split in July 2018 due to their busy schedules.
González and Momoa reportedly began dating in February 2022, five months after Momoa's split from Lisa Bonet. Momoa was spotted attending the premiere of González's movie "The Ambulance," but four months later, the two split. According to People, "they're just very different people." Meanwhile, another source said they "hoping they might work it out." "They love each other very much having dated quietly for some time before it became public," the insider noted. "They are in different life stages."
González appears to be kicking off 2023 with a new romance, as she's reportedly dating the NBA star. In February, People reported that the pair have been dating "for a few weeks" after they were spotted having dinner in New York. Neither González nor Simmons have publicly commented on the speculation. Reps for González did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR's request for comment and Simmons's reps could not be reached.
