Maya Jama' splits from NBA star fiance' Ben Simmons eight months after proposal | The Sun

MAYA Jama has reportedly split from fiance Ben Simmons following a "difficult time" over their conflicting schedules.

US publication the New York Post claimed the pair, who became engaged eight months ago, realised they were from "two different worlds" – confirming The Sun's break-up exclusive back in July.

NBA basketball star Ben, 26, was absent from Maya's recent wild 28th birthday celebrations in Ibiza where she flew pals to the White Isle on a private jet.

Now a source has told the publication of the break up, confirming The Sun's exclusive in July.

They said: "It’s been a difficult time for them.

"While they both care for each other so much, they truly gave it their all and realise 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 source then added: "After many long nights and hours of heartfelt talks, they finally realised as much as they love each other, their nonstop careers and endless travel have made it incredibly impossible to make it work.

"They had no idea the challenges they would face when handling all the logistics of making a life together in two countries."

The source then told how Maya and Aussie sports star Ben's sad conclusion was "one of the hardest decisions of their lives".
