rachel lindsay may have been saddled with suitors [VIDEO] nicknamed Tickle Monster and Whaboom on her season of The Bachelorette,” but the 31-year-old Dallas attorney has had some big name boyfriends in the past—and we’re not talking about four-time reality star Nick Viall.

Who was ‘The Bachelorette’ star’s famous ex-boyfriend?

According to Us Weekly, several years before her starring role on the rose-filled ABC reality show, Rachel dated NBA star, Kevin Durant. “The Bachelorette” beauty broke up with the future Cleveland Cavaliers star when she decided to study law at Marquette University after getting a B.S. in Sports Management.

The insider said Rachel’s relationship with Durant was “pretty serious,” and that the split between the two was amicable.

“Bachelorette” fans already know that Rachel Lindsay likes basketball. One of her group dates on the ABC reality show was on a basketball court with NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. But Lindsay’s link to the famous NBA star now lets fans know what type of guy she might be interested in as they try to figure out who she might end up with at the end of her rose-filled journey.

Rachel’s Franken-boyfriend

Then again, Viall, whom Rachel claimed to be in love with when she vied for his heart (and Neil Lane bling )on last season’s edition of “The Bachelor,” couldn’t be more opposite than Kevin Durant. Rachel Lindsay has said in past interviews that she doesn’t have a specific physical type, but during a recent appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” Rachel did say she likes a guy with a great smile.

Lindsay also told Glamour magazine that her dream guy would be a combination of three famous guys—none of them being Kevin Durant. Rachel, whose love for pop superstar Justin Bieber has been no secret, said she would like a guy with the “Boyfriend” singer’s baby-faced good looks and musical talent. But then she would like a side of Idris Elba, an actor with a sexy English accent and tall, dark, and handsome features. Lindsay then adds a splash of Brad Pitt to the mix because she says she fell in love with his “Legends of the Fall” character, Tristan Ludlow, and she still loves Pitt’s acting in the movie more than 20 years later.

Rachel Lindsay has already revealed that she is engaged to one of her suitors on “The Bachelorette.” Now it sounds like he has some very big shoes to fill—and not Kevin Durant’s.

“The Bachelorette” airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
