Ben Simmons and his fiancé squashed break up rumors as the NBA star shared a loved-up picture of the pair on Monday. This past weekend a source claimed the pair’s relationship had hit the skids after Maya decided she wanted to focus on her career. Taking to his Instagram Stories, the Brookyly Nets player showed they are very much still together, as he shared a black and white throwback picture of the pair together.
He captioned the pic: ‘@mayajama almost a year older’ followed by a laughing and heart emoji. Maya also took to her Twitter account to seemingly deny the report.
‘Stop believing sources in papers plz,’ she tweeted Sunday, a day after the breakup report came out.
According to the Sun, it was speculated that they had ended their romance last month. A source told the Sun on Sunday: “Maya called it off engagement after things came to head last month.
“She is not going back to New York now. It’s heartbreaking for both of them, especially as they were so committed to each other.
“They’re both young and want to focus on their careers.
So, now we know that Simmons didn’t leave Maya the way he left the group chat.
Ben Simmons reportedly did not like it when his Brooklyn Nets teammates asked him if he planned on playing during the team’s first-round exit against the Boston Celtics.
“They’re having a team chat before Game 4, thinking he’s going to play against the Celtics, and from what I’m told, Ben just left the chat,” Ric Bucher told Colin Cowherd on FS1’s The Herd last week (8:30 mark). “They asked him, ‘Are you going to play?’ Ben left the chat. Like he didn’t even answer the question. Just left the chat.”
The questions surrounding Simmons have been getting louder ever since longtime Philadelphia 76ers point guard requested a trade from the team last summer and then got thrown out of practice for not particiapting with the team.
Simmons cited mental health issues as the reason for his absence. Things only got worse as he would eventually be traded to the Nets in the deal that sent James Harden back to Philadelphia.
But Simmons never played for Brooklyn either, reportedly injuring his back while working on his conditioning over the winter.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported in May, “Simmons had planned to return for Game 4 of the Nets’ Eastern Conference first-round series against the Celtics, but a week-plus of pain-free days ended with pain soreness on the eve of Brooklyn’s elimination.” Simmons ultimately had a microdiscectomy surgery to “address pain located in a herniated disk in his lower back,” per Woj.
