Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond dated briefly in 2013, and some fans didn’t even know they were a couple.
The 29-year-old actress is best known for her role as Sam Puckett on the Nickelodeon series iCarly, where she won four Kids’ Choice Awards.
Andre, who is currently signed with the Brooklyn Nets, played for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Connecticut Huskies. But did you know that Janet and Andre dated a few years ago? It seems that some people take years to find out that they are in love.
Jennette McCurdy and Andre Drummond dated in 2013, but it took some fans nine years to stumble upon the news. At the time of their relationship, Andre was a member of the Detroit Pistons, while Janet reprised her role as Sam in the spinoff “Sam and the Cat.”
The reason their short-lived romance suddenly came into focus was due to the reaction of fans of the two stars, who were unaware of their romantic relationship.
Another reason is a recent Twitter post titled “Never Forget Sam Puckett and Andre Drummond,” which has garnered 66,000 likes and over 3,500 retweets at the time of writing. Janet and Andre’s relationship garnered a lot of attention on social media when the two stars were first romantically linked.
The iCarly star revealed to Nerdist.com (via HollywoodLife) that Andre was the one who “slipped into her DM,” but their relationship didn’t last long.
“It only lasted about a week, which was really short,” she told the outlet. The former Disney actress recalled their first kiss and explained the experience in detail.
“My first kiss with him was after we were laser marked,” she continued. “I was standing on a chair…I tried. But it wasn’t good. It wasn’t smooth. No sparks, the mouth…was not in the right shape.” But now that’s all over. Jennette is currently openly single, and Andre is a father of two, but he’s been secretive about his personal life.
