The Melbourne mother locked in a bitter feud with Kendall Jenner

Kendall Jenner is currently locked in a bitter feud with a Melbourne mother – the sister of her former flame, NBA star Ben Simmons. 

Following the model’s split from Australian-born  Simmons in May, his sister Liv Simmons has now unleashed her fury from the other side of the world.

Liv sparked international headlines with her Twitter tirade on Tuesday, writing: ‘People can’t stand my honesty. And I can’t stand people’s sensitivity.’

Their feud started after Kendall, 23, responded on Tuesday to a meme linking her to five different NBA players, including her most recent ex, Ben. 

Hitting back, Kendall tweeted, ‘2 out of 5 accurate, thanks’. 

Liv, who recently moved to Melbourne after a period living in America, also responded to the meme. 

‘I just wouldn’t ever wanna be known for dating athletes. Like imagine working your way through a league,’ she wrote.

Moments later, Liv tweeted again: ‘I’d rather be crazy than be a h**’. 

While Liv didn’t mention Kendall by name in her Twitter posts, fans of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star realised who she was talking about.

As thousands of people tweeted abuse at her, Liv hit back with: ‘I didn’t say any names but if the shoes fits WEAR it’.

After her social media activity made headlines, Liv tweeted: ‘Once again the internet proves me right. I didn’t name any names but clearly the shoe fits.’ 

Despite being locked in a high-profile feud with Kendall, it’s clear the two women’s lives couldn’t be more different. 

After working as a basketball coach in Pennsylvania, Liv, who is one of five children, recently moved back to the her home city of Melbourne. 

Taking to Facebook last week, Liv revealed that she and Ben’s older sister Melissa are now the only Simmons children still living in Australia.

‘We are the last two left in the land Down Under but the growth we have had as sisters makes me really happy,’ she wrote.

Ben, 22, and his siblings were mostly born in Melbourne’s Fitzroy, before later relocating to Newcastle, NSW for several years. 

He started playing basketball at the age of seven for Newcastle Hunters’ under 12s team.

When Ben turned 10, the family returned to Melbourne, where the young athlete played for the local Knox Raiders, before embarking upon a career in the U.S. 

On Wednesday, Ben signed a $242million contract extension with the Philadelphia 76ers, making him the highest-paid Australian sportsman of all-time.
