1. Brandon was an international basketball star before setting foot in the NBA.
Brandon may have enchanted Khloe with his tales of European adventures when they reportedly dined at Nobu on April 17. In 2008, Brandon skipped out on college to play with Pallacanestro Virtus Roma in the Italian Serie A basketball league, per ESPN. However, this was to just keep him busy until he was eligible for the NBA Draft and in 2009, the Milwaukee Bucks picked him in the first round.
2. He’s already a father of three!
Brandon has three sons by three different women, according to Complex. His most recent baby momma was Lashontae “Tae” Heckard and she gave birth to her first son on Nov. 6, 2015. Brandon stayed in the hospital long enough to see the birth of his son before joining the Detroit Pistons for the rest of a Western road trip, per MLive. Does this mean he’ll make time for Khloe if they continue to date?
3. Brandon almost married one of his baby’s mamas.
Brandon and Tae were engaged in 2014, but their wedding hit a snag. Tae was in a domestic partnership with a woman named Monique Blanton, according to TMZ. Though they reportedly split in 2011, Tae and Monique didn’t legally end their relationship. If Tae wanted to become Mrs. Jennings, she needed to take care of that, first. However, Tae and Brandon’s love wouldn’t last.
4. He dumped his girlfriend while she was still pregnant.
Forget the marriage. Brandon dumped Tae right before she gave birth, according to MStar News. He claimed that he was “lusting” when he and Tae hooked up. While haters blasted him for leaving his visibly pregnant bae, Brandon reportedly treated his decision as if it were no big deal.
5. Brandon gets around – within the NBA.
Brandon has played for as many teams as he has baby mamas. He played for four seasons with the Milwaukee Bucks, until he was signed-and-traded to the Detroit Pistons in 2013. He played with the Pistons until he was traded to the Orlando Magic in 2016. Will Brandon’s stay in Orlando last longer than his reported relationship with Khloe?
