Is Miami Heat’s Jimmy Butler Dating Shakira?

Jimmy Butler and superstar singer Shakira reportedly went on a date together.

Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler just seems to keep winning. 

After an amazing run to the NBA Finals, he has the Heat on the verge of acquiring Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard. If that wasn't enough, Butler is also prevailing off the court. 

He was recently seen on a date in London with international singer Shakira.

The two have been linked for a while, and their romance may be coming to fruition. Shakira was spotted at Heat games, with some believing she was there to watch Butler.

“They’ve been out a few times, but things are very new and it’s too early to tell if there’s long-term potential there,” a source told Us Weekly Magazine.

Hopefully, Butler doesn’t get too distracted with his new dating endeavors. Miami needs him in prime form next season to try and get back to the Finals. Fans are hoping Lillard joins the Heat to give them a legitimate chance against their opponent.

But right now, basketball is probably the furthest thing from Butler’s mind.
