Rachel Lindsay Reportedly Used to Date NBA Star Kevin Durant


Too bad “dirty, dirty dog” DeMario Jackson wasn’t as good off the court as he was on — Rachel Lindsay apparently has a thing for ballers!

Just days after we watched the Bachelorette 2017 star take DeMario and some of her other Season 13 contestants on a basketball group date, we’re finding out she once dated an NBA star!

Before the 32-year-old lawyer got engaged to her Bachelorette final choice — spoil yourself over here! — she apparently had some other serious relationships, including her new-famous college beau.

We’re talking about Golden State Warriors player Kevin Durant!

According to Us Weekly sources, the small forward and Bachelorette dated when the two were in college at the University of Texas at Austin.

Also notable is that Kevin was only in college for one year before entering the NBA draft, so that means...

Our gal Rach is a bit of a cougar!

The athlete is now 28 years old, so he’s four years the lawyer’s junior. That means she was a senior and he was a freshman when they were in a relationship.

Still, it wasn’t his basketball career or the age difference that ultimately broke them up — it was her career.

“They broke up when she went to law school,” the insider reveals.

As fans know, the Southern belle went on to study law at Marquette University in Wisconsin, after getting her undergrad degree in sports management.

And though it was apparently an amicable split, it sounds like it definitely made some waves in each of their lives.

The source adds, “It was a pretty serious relationship.”

It’s all water under the bridge now, of course, seeing as he’s gone on to get engaged (and unengaged) to WNBA star Monica Wright.

He was recently linked to models Chantel Jeffries, Crystal Renee, and Jasmine Shine.

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty is madly in love with her new fiancé.

“I really do think I found my forever love,” she said recently. “No, I don’t think, I know. He knows, too.”
