Maya Jama ‘confirms’ relationship with Ben Simmons with kiss at Wimbledon
They look super cute together
Last updated 1 hour ago
Maya Jama has “confirmed” her relationship with basketball player Ben Simmons, packing her bags on the PDA during yesterday’s Wimbledon match (July 5). In the photo kissing and cuddling, the couple looked extremely happy together as they enjoyed the game.
Rumors began to circulate that the couple were dating last month, when Maya and the NBA player were seen leaving a restaurant in London within minutes of each other. Now, after attending a pre-tennis lunch together, the couple have reportedly confirmed their relationship with a cheeky kiss in the stands.
Maya reportedly traveled to Philadelphia to visit Ben earlier this year, with a source telling the Mirror, “Things are heating up for Maya and Ben. They are really in love with each other and the fact that she flew to Philadelphia to be with her said a lot. They had a great time two weeks together. It’s nice to see her so happy. “
Attending the match alongside Ben, who has previously been romantically linked to Kendall Jenner, Maya also shared a not-so-subtle image of the back of Ben’s head to her Instagram Story.
If that’s not a confirmation, we don’t know what it is …
Looking back to 2019, rumors started to mount that Maya and Ben were “getting to know each other” with fans starting to believe they were actually dating. Fueling the fire, Ben commented on several fire emojis on one of the TV presenter’s Instagram posts.
Maya has yet to officially confirm the news, of course.
