Ben Simmons had a terrible season in 2020-21 and that adversely affected his market. However, nothing that could harm his dating game, as the man never went short of gorgeous women in his life.

At 25, Ben is already a 3x NBA All-Star, 2019-20 steal champion, and a complete wizard in a 6’11” body. He is the definition of an alpha male and all that attracts a crazy female fandom. No wonder why Ben went through one relationship a year to finally (at least as of now) settle for Maya Jama.

Ben Simmons and his super lit relationship with girlfriend Maya Jama

Maya Jama speaks for a living and is certainly the SAS of her own shows. The 27-YO is two years older than Ben (25) and her parents have named her after poet Maya Angelou. At the age of 18, Jama shifted to London in the same year when the city was hosting the Summer Olympics. She then actively hosted Maya’s Fifa World Cup Cities in 2014 and shot to fame.

After a stint on MTV and then spending some time as a presenter with BBC, Jama made a name for herself as an Adidas brand ambassador. For four years (2015-19), the lady dated British rapper Stormzy before finally parting ways to focus on her career. 

That’s exactly when Ben Simmons entered her life and the two have been dating for the last few months. Their relationship actually became official when they showed up in the Wimbledon Box, kissing, exposing PDA, and enjoying the match between Novak Djokovic and Cristian Garin. 

Past dating history of the Fresh Prince of Philadelphia

Ben face-timed during the high-tension playoff games and the couple even went out for dinner in Philly. But before he started seeing the #DriveWithMaya fame, he had spent many years dating other beautiful and successful women.

Back in 2016, when a rookie Ben was out of play because of his foot injury, the youngster was dating Brittany Renner. Brittany became popular with her book ‘Judge this cover’ which was released a year after her relationship with Ben ended.

Later in 2017, Ben briefly dated American singer and songwriter Tinashe before finally getting his biggest catch in Kendall Jenner from the Kardashian clan. However, Kendall soon shifted her attention towards Suns’ Devin Booker as Ben found his quick rebound in Talia Richman.
