Ben Simmons and his TV star fiancee have broken up.
After a year together, Maya Jama and basketball player Ben Simmons have broken up.
The Sun says that the TV host, who is 27, broke up with the Australian sports star, who is 26, last month.
He asked her to marry him in December, and she has been going back and forth to the United States a lot because he plays basketball for the Brooklyn Nets in the NBA.
A source told The Sun on Sunday, “Maya called off the engagement after things got really bad last month.”
She won’t go back to New York at this time. It’s so sad for both of them, especially since they loved each other so much. They are both young and want to focus on their careers. Maya feels good about her future because she is getting job offers from all over the world.
“She’s been going to the gym and hanging out with her friends a lot.”
Jama was seen wearing a diamond engagement ring in January that was said to be worth more than $800,000 (AUD $1.1 million).
This week, Jama, who used to date 29-year-old British rapper Stormzy, has been seen with and without her engagement ring.
She is a host on the UK show Walk the Line, which is a music competition.
Simmons and Jama’s relationship became public around the middle of last year, when they went to Wimbledon together and held hands in the crowd.
Simmons dated Kendall Jenner in the past, but they broke up in May 2019.
The 26-year-old was traded to the Nets in the middle of last season, but he hasn’t played in an NBA game since the Philadelphia 76ers kicked him out of the playoffs in 2021.
