Brody Jenner’s sister-in-law Leah occasionally appears on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” but most people found out something interesting about the part-time reality TV star: before she married Brandon she dated Brody!
Even though it sounds like there could have been some potential drama, the in-laws met when they were young, Leah, now 31, explained last week on "The Brody Jenner Podcast with Dr. Mike Dow," Brody’s new love advice podcast.
She started talking about how she met Brandon, now 33. "We've known each other since we were 11 years old; I was 11 years old, he was 13,” the blonde beauty explained, according to NZ City.
Then she added: "We started playing [music] in high school together. I had a boyfriend, he had a girlfriend. And then when I was single one day, he was single one day and he came up to me and he's like, 'I've been in love with you since you were 11 years old.'"
But things got interesting when Brandon's brother Brody, 30, clarified who was that significant other. “The boyfriend at the time was me,” he said. “That's what made it really awkward."
At first, Leah tried to deny she dated Brody first. "I met Brandon through Brody. We went to school together when we were 11. Okay, 11. You don't kiss, you don't make out, you don't hold hands, you beat each other up, you play basketball."
Eventually, she conceded: "So he was my boyfriend in the fifth grade, Brody was [but] we never kissed.”And Brody playfully added, according to MSN’s Wonderwall: "I did shoot her with a BB gun!"
Brandon and Leah, who is the daughter of former Eagles guitarist Don Felder, married in June 2012 in Hawaii, where Brody served as the best man.
