Who Is Corey Gamble? Kris Jenner & Her Apparent New Boo Run in the Same Circle
After many ups and downs with Bruce Jenner, Kris Jenner finally sees to be living it up as a single lady. When Kris and Bruce first split, it was unclear if they were going to get back together or not. They announced a separation, but were still photographed hanging out and filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians together. But now that they are officially divorcing, that relationship has some definitive closure, but as fans we're left wondering who they're dating now. Bruce is reportedly seeing Kris' old friend Ronda Kamihira, and Kris Jenner has been spotted with a man named Corey Gamble. Wait... who?!
Kris and Gamble were photographed grabbing dinner and drinks in California, then they hung out with the family for Kim Kardashian's birthday in Las Vegas, and apparently they just came back from Mexico. All that, and I still don't know who this dude is. My favorite thing about Keeping Up with the Kardashians is that they're so open about their lives — a Kardashian/Jenner mystery does not remain a mystery for long. Until now.
I hate when someone I know — or in this case "know" — ends up dating someone I've never even heard of. So I did what I normally do to get some answers: social media creep.
He May or May Not Be Dating Kris Jenner
Well this ones a given. I feel so college saying this, but it seems like Kris and Gamble are "talking." They have only been hanging out for about three weeks, and sources tell E! News that the two are "not dating." But they do seem to be spending a lot of time together. Maybe they're taking the time to get to know each other before they move on to anything official or more serious. If so, good for them. There's no need to rush into things.
He Is Associated With Justin Bieber
If you are a Justin Bieber fan, this guy might look a little bit familiar to you. He is a music industry executive who co-manages the Biebs alongside Scooter Braun. They even reportedly refer to each other as "uncle" and "nephew." This is interesting since Bieber hangs out with the Kardashian/Jenners pretty often. I wonder if he helped facilitate the match?
He is Younger than Kris Jenner
Gamble is in his early 40s while Kris is looking great at 58 years old. It seems a little random that they would be running in the same social circles, but they actually are. Gamble told OK! magazine that they met at designer Ricardo Tisci's birthday party and added, "I approached her and found out we actually lived pretty close to each other."
He Seems like a Nice Guy
According to a source who spoke with E! News, "He's a really great guy. He's been part of [Justin] Bieber's group for a while and they met through mutual friends. He's so nice, and a very responsible man. He doesn't drink or party. He is very caring and generally just an all-around good guy." This sounds like the kind of guy that Kris should want to be around.
He's Active on Social Media
For being a virtual stranger to us pop culture addicts, this guy sure has a great social media following. He has 23,000 Twitter followers including Miley Cyrus, Diddy, and Ludacris. Gamble is also pretty popular on Instagram with over 78,000 followers. Of course, he posts plenty of pics with the Biebs and his crew. Kim Kardashian even Instagrammed a pic he was in as a part of group photo of friends celebrating her birthday in October.
He Does Not Appear to Be Looking for Fame
The Kardashian/Jenner women are all beautiful, successful, and famous ― very famous. So it's only natural to question whether Gamble is an opportunist looking for his 15 minutes of fame. When photos of Jenner and Gamble at dinner leaked, he was not happy about it, telling OK! Magazine, "I don’t know how anyone had those pics because no one was seated across from us. That worries me and I’m hoping it’s not a setup from Kris because I do really like her." Awww.
Gamble has his own money and famous connections, so he probably doesn't need Kris for anything. From what I've seen and heard, it sounds like this budding romance is the real deal. I don't know how serious it will get, but Corey Gamble intentions definitely appear genuine. I just hope that he can keep up with Kris Jenner.
