Jimmy Butler Shakira

So far this NBA postseason, Miami Heat star Jimmy Butler has been quite dominant, leading his team to the Eastern Conference Finals where they have a 3-1 lead over the Boston Celtics with a chance to move on to the NBA Finals against the Denver Nuggets. Butler has attracted a lot of attention for his play on the court, and that apparently includes one very famous pop star: Shakira.

The pop star – who also lives in Miami – was seen attending Sunday night’s Game 3 against the Celtics, presumably in support of Butler and the Heat. But not only did she attend the game, but it also appears she made a pretty big move toward Butler – and the Miami Heat star reciprocated.

As the Shakirastuff fan account pointed out on Twitter, not only was Shakira at the game on Tuesday night, but she also followed Butler on Instagram, and the Miami Heat superstar followed her back.

While this news doesn’t necessarily mean that there is any sort of romantic interest between the two celebrities, that certainly didn’t stop fans from speculating about it on Twitter.

We will certainly have to see whether or not this is the beginning of a new relationship or simply a new friendship.
