Shannon Sharpe is making it clear that he wouldn’t entertain Kim Kardashian even if he had the opportunity.
The talks of him dating Kardashian came about during a recent chat with Chad “Ochocinco” Johnson. His fellow retired football pro suggested he start kicking it with the beauty mogul during an episode of their Nightcap with Unc and Ocho podcast. Ocho felt that Sharpe and Kardashian would be a “power couple” of sorts.
At the time, Sharpe said he would not consider dating the socialite because he is much more reserved than her. However, when speaking with TMZ, he expounded on the conversation, clarifying that it’s nothing personal against the SKIMS founder.
“Kim has enough going on. She’s an outstanding businesswoman, and what she’s been able to do. That family is amazing, but I got too much on my plate. She has too much on her plate, and plus, I’m too private of a guy. I don’t want to live a public life,” he told TMZ.
While it’s unknown if Kardashian was ever interested in Sharpe, it’s clear that she is now single. There have been rumors regarding her dating Odell Beckham Jr., though sources close to her say the two are just friends. She previously dated Pete Davidson for nine months before calling it quits in August 2022.
Sharpe is also single but recently expressed interest in adult film star Miss B Nasty, which came as a surprise, especially considering his past views on body counts. Nevertheless, it doesn’t appear he’s had his opportunity with the actress yet.
