Enes Kanter Freedom is having a big couple months. First he became an American citizen. Now he is dating a model.
Emily Sears, a model who once appeared in Carl’s Jr. commercial, posted a photo with Kanter Freedom on Instagram with the caption “Bravest person I know.”
According to TMZ, Kanter Freedom and Sears have been dating for “a couple months”.
Kanter Freedom, a former Knick who currently plays for the Celtics, has been an outspoken advocate of human rights, speaking out against the regimes in his native Turkey, China (whose authoritarian government is a major, controversial partner with the NBA) and elsewhere.
“When I was nine years old, my mom told me to always stand up for what’s right — even if it means sacrificing everything,” Kanter Freedom told The Post earlier this month. “From that day forward, I have always been outspoken. Now I am on a big stage and there are so many dictators out there who are destroying people. God gave me this platform, and I have to use it for the good fight.”
TMZ says Sears and Kanter Freedom are dating at a distance for the time being — with the former living in Los Angeles and the latter in Boston.
