But that doesn't mean that everyone in the world knows who she is. Apparently, including her own boyfriend.
On an episode of her Facebook Watch docuseries, her boyfriend, Jonathan Owens, talked about meeting his superstar girlfriend and having no idea who she was.
"Her work ethic was really the first thing that caught my eye. I never really watched gymnastics before I first started talking to her," he shared. "When I met her, I honestly didn’t know who she was. It was just kind of like, 'Oh, she’s got a lot of followers. You know, she must be pretty good or something.'"
Pretty good?! How about one of the best in the world?!
The NFL player soon learned — thanks to his friends and family — that he wasn't dating just any regular athlete.
"That’s how I would tell people, and they’re like, 'Simone Biles?! You for real, the gymnast?!' And I’m like, 'Man, she’s good like that?!' Like I didn’t [know]," he shared about falling for her.
A lot of fans are calling BS on his claim about not knowing the gymnast.
One fan was impressed he was able to keep a straight face through the interview.
A different person commented on the fact that her social media clearly highlights exactly who she is.
A different fan gave him a plausible lie for next time.
Another fan kept it real, saying, "You knew who that lady was."
Well, he knows who she is now, and something tells me he won't forget anytime soon.
