Brooklyn Nets’ Ben Simmons and British DJ Maya Jama Call of their Engagement

Ben Simmons is having an interesting last few years to say the least.

Brooklyn Nets guard Ben Simmons and British television presenter Maya Jama have called off their engagement, according to Jenna Lemoncelli and Evan Real of the New York Post.

“It’s been a difficult time for them,” said a source close to the couple, per that report. “While they both care for each other so much, they truly gave it their all and realize that they just come from two different worlds. They now understand they don’t have the time they thought to dedicate to this relationship.”

The controversial Brooklyn Nets player reportedly proposed to Maya Jama over the holidays last December. Apparently working in different countries took its toll on their relationship.

“After many long nights and hours of heartfelt talks, they finally realized as much as they love each other, their nonstop careers and endless travel have made it incredibly impossible to make it work,” the source told Lemoncelli and Real.

Simmons will be looking to make his on-court debut for the Brooklyn Nets this season after not playing one single minute for them following his February trade from the Philadelphia 76ers.

All indications are that Simmons will be joining Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving, the star duo who were the subject of persistent trade rumors throughout the summer but who, for the time being, are remaining with the team.

It will be interesting to see how they all look on the court together.

And we’ll keep tabs on who Simmons’ next girlfriend will be…
