TMZ report that sources close to Ben insist it's suspicious that Tinashe has partied at the same club as Kendall and the basketball player twice in two weeks.

Labelling his ex 'obsessive' the report adds that Ben doesn't want to take any chances when it comes to his and Kendall's safety, so is considering his security options.
A representative for Tinashe has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
Last Thursday Tinashe claimed that her ex texted her while he was inside a West Hollywood club with Kendall.
But according to TMZ's sources close to Ben, her claim was a 'flat out lie.'
The TMZ insider said the NBA player called her out after he heard about her claims, and she admitted to 'making up' the story to create 'unnecessary tension.'
Tinashe, 25, and Ben, 21, only dated from March until May; he moved on to Kendall, 22, soon after.
The drama started on Thursday night in West Hollywood when Kendall and Ben happened to be at the same nightclub as his ex Tinashe.
Kendall and Ben left together and then Tinashe left with her pals.
When asked by a photographer on her way out if she saw Kendall and her ex, Tinashe said she did, adding that he sent her text messages while inside, The Blast reported.
Tinashe, after confirming that she saw Ben and Kendall inside together, then said: 'He's texting me what the hell?'
Adding: 'What's he doing? What an idiot!' she said while showing her phone.
The photographer then said 'You know he's doing it for fame,' to which she can be heard saying 'Yup.'
There have been conflicting reports on whether or not Ben began dating Kendall while he was still with Tinashe, according to Page Six.

Tinashe, 25, first revealed her romance with Ben in mid-March; they parted ways two months later in May.
Kendall and Ben were first spotted together in late May during outings in New York City and Los Angeles.
At the time, Page Six revealed that they were dating 'for a few weeks.'
Soon after the report, Tinashe's younger brother Kudzai Kachingwe wrote on Twitter that Ben only broke up with his sister on Sunday and that he allegedly cheated on Tinashe, Page Six noted.
However, a conflicting report from MTO News via Page Six said that Ben split with Tinashe because she was 'doing Kardashian s**t.'
Their insider had said: 'She is way too public with everything. They just started dating and this girl is calling up paparazzi.'
Tinashe's younger brother then tweeted: 'people all lied on her talking fake news about my sis doing kardashian s**t u cheat on her w a Jenner,' Page Six noted.
