The two made their relationship public when a photo of the two kissing at Wimbledon went viral in 2021. Their relationship was also confirmed online when Maya Gama shared several photos on her Instagram account while she was on her private plane to meet Simmons in the US.
This Valentine’s Day this year, Ben Simmons went to extremes and pulled all the stops. He decorated Maya’s bedroom with rose petals.
The two announced their engagement when Gama was seen wearing a diamond ring. Simmons had asked her to marry him over Christmas, and the two had vacationed at Simmons’ $3.7 million mansion in New Jersey.
However, the two have now separated. That being said, with how busy both of them are in their careers, they weren’t able to spend as much time with each other as they wanted.
Maya is an in-demand TV presenter who has had success with fashion brands like PrettyLittleThing and JD Sports. She is also a model who has 2.4 million followers on Instagram.
The sources said, “It has been a difficult period for them. While they both care a lot about each other, they have really given everything they have and realized that they just come from two different worlds. They are now realizing that they don’t have the time they thought to devote to this relationship.”
“After many nights and many hours of heartfelt conversations, they finally realize how much they love each other, their non-stop careers and endless travel making it incredibly impossible to make it work.”

Ben Simmons will be putting all his focus into his season now
With the split with Maya Gama, Simmons now has time to focus on the upcoming NBA season after taking a year off. Simmons has been stuck in the middle of a lot of drama last year.
After the end of the 2020-21 season, Simmons was put on the spot due to his lack of shooting ability. He made some great plays during the playoffs, and as a result, people questioned his future with the 76ers.
Eventually, Simmons became part of James Harden’s trade that sent him to Brooklyn in exchange for an All-Star. Simmons didn’t recover from his injury in time to play for Brooklyn, but now, after a full stint of rehab, he’s ready to go.
Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving are back, and with a whole season to come together, the trio may reach heights we never imagined. After all, in his heyday, Simmons was an All-Defense player, All-Star.
