We caught up with Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles during New York Fashion Week, where the amazing athlete told us all about meeting Beyonce and Kim Kardashian at the VMAs, and even set the rumors straight about her dating life! WATCH our interview with Simone right here!
Simone Biles, 19, got glam for the Sherri Hill show at Gotham Hall during New York Fashion Week on Sept. 12, where we got a chance to catch up with the gymnast on her exciting life after the Rio Olympic Games. The gymnast told us all about the VMAs, where she was so excited to meet and present an award to Beyonce and loved meeting Kim Kardashian! During the Olympic games, Kim tweeted about her little daughter, North West, watching Simone compete — and the Olympian even promised to share some pointers with the tiny tot! “I wanted to send her daughter, North, a leo from my collection, so I already have it on my way to her,” she said. “I said I can teach her a gymnastics lesson,” Simone said, adding that Kim was “so sweet” and “very genuine” as they crossed paths at the awards show — they even posed for some epic Snapchats!
Kim and Simone both presented awards at the VMAs — and Simone said meeting Queen Bey was an experience unlike any other! “That was pretty crazy,” she admitted. “Beyonce knew I was from Houston so I died a little inside.”

Throughout the games there was a ton of speculation surrounding Simone’s dating life whenever she was spotted with one of her guy friends — but the gymnast is, in fact, single! So, how does she deal with all the rumors? “I don’t know, we ignore it. They always think we have like seven boyfriends because they don’t ever see us with guys, just because we’re just always in the gym, but, like, we do have guy friends and we’re not dating every guy we see, we don’t even have boyfriends, none of us!”
Although Simone is the best gymnast in the world, she’s just trying to take it one day at a time and isn’t even thinking about heading back to the Olympics just yet. “We’ll see, you really have to embrace the moment, and it just happened,” she said when we asked if she’s gearing up to compete.
