When last we left Playboy Playmate of the Year (2014) Kennedy Summers, she was calling out her boyfriend, Utah Jazz center Jeff Withey, for cheating. It seems that Withey told her that he was going to the movies alone, and then she found a ticket stub that showed he paid for two admissions.
But Withey wriggled out of it when he explained that he had paid for a stranger standing in line in front of him. See honey? Nothing shady going on here (pulls at collar. Sweats).
Kennedy took him back — in fact, they got engaged.
That was in June. Three months later they have officially split, and she did the dumping. In a statement, Summers’ representative, Zack Teperman, said:
“While it has many pros, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc. can also create many issues within a relationship. The negative effects of social media have claimed yet another couple.”
TMZ reported jealousy was among the “many issues” that eventually drove the lovebirds apart. Both he and Summers have since purged one another from their Instagram pages.
Blaming social media for a couple calling off an engagement is an extraordinary thing, even in 2016. They would have enjoyed a blissful, 50-year relationship if only communication satellites had not been invented! Curse you, mobile technology!
In other news, Withey is completely insane. Taking into account the slideshow below, I would have constructed a suit of full body chastity armor and emerged only for games, and bathing.
