Someone has Kim Kardashian smiling, and In Touch exclusively revealed on September 19 that the reality icon is NFL star Odell Beckham Jr., about one year following her breakup from Pete Davidson.

The relationship began at billionaire Michael Rubin‘s White part in the Hamptons, where Kim had originally been linked to retired NFL legend Tom Brady amid the A-list bash.

The source told In Touch of the new couple, “They’re dating and Odell even went to Kim’s in Calabasas to meet the whole family during one of [Khloé Kardashian‘s kid’s] birthday parties a few weeks ago.”

The news came after four months after the Skims founder spoke with Scott Disick about a new man in her life. She then appeared smitten as she dished to producers about the mystery guy. However, she’s wasn’t quite ready to reveal his identity, referring to him only by the pseudonym “Fred.” Fans everywhere are wondering if “Fred” was actually Odell all along/ ==. 

Who Is ‘Fred’? Details on Mystery Man

In The Kardashians season 3 episode 3, titled “Everything Is My Fault!”, Kim sat down with Scott at a restaurant and enjoyed some pizza as they caught up with each other. Scott asked about Kim’s dating life, and she revealed that she wanted to enjoy some time dating around. However, there was one man who caught her attention.

Kim explained that her friends had wanted her to meet this mystery man, so she took him to her go-to hotel spot in New York where they could have some privacy. An October 2022 report about the outing claimed she had rekindled her romance with Pete Davidson, but she confirmed to Scott that she did not meet with her ex-boyfriend and instead met up with her mystery man.

Scott chose not to ask Kim who the man was, instead calling him “Fred.” He asked if “Fred” meets the standards, to which Kim replied, “Oh, so meets the standards.’

The scene cut to a confessional, where a producer caught Kim smiling at her phone. 

“That’s a lot of smiling, young lady,” the producer remarked. “Is that ‘Fred’”?

“Yeah,” Kim replied.

Who Is Kim Kardashian Dating Now?

While source told Us Weekly in a story published on May 30, 2023, that Kim wasn’t “officially dating anybody,” In Touch confirmed in September that Kim and Odell are officially an item. 

The insider continued to tell Us Weekly at the time that Kim wanted to “keep it under the radar” because “she doesn’t want to make it a big deal” if she’s seen out on a date with someone. 

“She knows once she’s seen on a date then things get blown out of proportion quickly, but there is somebody special she has her eye on so she’s excited about where things could go,” the source concluded.

In June 2023, Kim appeared on Hailey Bieber’s “Who’s In My Bathroom?” YouTube series, where she admitted to having a new celebrity crush during a game of “Truth or Shot.” She wouldn’t name any names, but she said, “I almost want to take a drink because I kinda want it to come true.”

After admitting that her crush doesn’t know she likes him, Kim opted to take the shot. “I’m more into privacy these days,” she added.

“So, she has a crush, she just doesn’t want to say,” Hailey joked. “That’s cute for you.”

Are Kim Kardashian and Tom Brady Together?

The secrecy surrounding Kim’s new flame comes not long after she was spotted looking at properties in the Bahamas, where “GOAT” athlete Tom Brady also owns a home. As a result, rumors swirled in early May 2023 that Kim and Tom were dating. However, a source shot down the rumors, telling Us Weekly the two are “strictly friends.”

“Kim is looking at purchasing property in Baker’s Bay and knows Tom has a vacation home there in the Bahamas,” the insider shared on May 16. “She reached out to him for advice, and he was really helpful. He pointed her in a few different directions and made a couple recommendations.”

What Has Kim Kardashian Said About Dating After Pete Davidson, Kanye West?

Kim’s new romance comes on the heels of her split from Pete, whom she dated from October 2021 to August 2022. Multiple sources confirmed to In Touch that the couple split amicably. 

As seen on The Kardashians season 3, Kim is also still dealing with the aftermath of her divorce from Kanye “Ye” West, which was finalized in November 2022. The two got married in May 2014 and share four kids — North, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm.

Her situations with Kanye and Pete were both very public, so Kim revealed on The Kardashians season 3 episode 3 that she wants to “sneak around” with someone for a while.

“You obviously learn from every situation and the one thing I learned from my last situation was, like, the media made me feel like I was in a very serious relationship, like, so quickly,” she said in a confessional. “I just want to sneak around a little bit. Like there’s nothing wrong with wanting to sneak.”
