Like other people, celebrities also go through the ups and downs of romantic relationships. However, the difference is that their personal lives are often in the public eye. Recently, the news of the split between Maya Jama and Ben Simmons, who got engaged in December 2021 with a $1M engagement ring, has been widely discussed. This is an example of how media attention can magnify the events in the life of celebrities.

At the time of the engagement, Maya and Ben appeared to be very happy together. The NBA player had proposed to his partner after a seven-month whirlwind romance. However, by September 2022, the couple ended their relationship.

“It’s been a difficult time for them. 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,” a source from The New York Post had said last year.

Initially, it was reported that the split between Maya and Ben was amicable. However, recent reports suggest that the situation may not be as cordial as previously thought. According to The Sun, the NBA player has sent a legal letter to Maya, requesting her to return the expensive engagement ring he had proposed with.

“Given Ben has never, until now, asked for the ring back, you can appreciate the letter came somewhat as a surprise to Maya. for the other side of the story, “Ben was in shock when she left and didn’t give him the ring back.

He was madly in love with her. [He] thought it was forever so was really pissed she didn’t give it back. It cost around $1 million and they were engaged less than a year.”

A representative for Jama spoke with Daily Mail about the ongoing debacle. “Maya received a request from Ben’s representatives on Friday afternoon. It asked her to return the engagement ring that he gave her as a gift last year,” they explained.

“This was the first time that she has been asked by Ben to return it. For the avoidance of any doubt, she has never refused to return it.”

The source also noted that the European entertainer is “making arrangements to return the ring to Ben and wishes him all the best. We’ll have to see who Ben Simmons will end up with next.
