REPORT: NBA Baller Ben Simmons Proposed To British TV Host Maya Jama Over The Holidays

NBA player Ben Simmons is about to be a husband! According to a report, the Philadelphia 76er popped the question to British TV host Maya Jama. Deets on the proposal inside…

Ben Simmons is about heading down the aisle! 

During the holiday season, the 25-year-old Philadelphia 76er reportedly popped the question to Maya Jama, a 27-year-old British TV host. And, she said yes!

An engagement is definitely happier news than his ongoing strenuous relationship with the 76ers, who refuse to cut him despite Ben basically making it known he wants out.  Ben hasn’t played with the team this season, and has been fined each game for not doing so.  By the way, he has a $177M contract.

The Sun reports Ben and Maya secretly got engaged over Christmas. A source told the publication the couple “decided to keep the news low-key and tell only those closest to them.”

“Ben adores Maya and has fallen head over heels for her,” the source spilled. “He picked up the ring on Jewelers’ Row in the diamond district of Philadelphia the day before he proposed,” the insider also said. “He chose the ring himself and felt he knew exactly what she would want. Maya said yes and they’re both thrilled.”

Their whirlwind romance started in May 2021. A few months later, the new couple was spotted kissing in the stands at Wimbledon over the summer. Clearly, Ben sees a future with her because he put a ring on it just 7 months later.

“News is going to get out eventually, but they’re keen to keep it under wraps until the new year. Ben fell for Maya almost immediately and was absolutely taken by her sheer beauty,” the source continued. “He tells friends he loves the fact that she has her own career and he’s smitten by her British accent.”

The soon-to-be bride is a presenter of the BBC’s “Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star,” and also hosts Simon Cowell’s “Walk the Line” music competition reality show.

We can’t help but notice how much she resembles his ex-girlfriend singer Tinashe.

Ben & Tinashe started dating in early 2018, but he allegedly dumped her for reality star/model Kendall Jenner in May 2018. The NBA star and the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star dated for about a year and broke up in 2019. In 2020, Ben and Tinashe supposedly got back together – lowkey – after rumors about Kendall hooking up with fellow NBA star fellow NBA star Devin Booker (who she’s currently dating). Not long after reuniting, they called it quits again.

 

New year, still that bitch

Guess he found "the one."  Maybe he’ll be able to say that about a new team soon as well.

Congrats to the couple!

Terry Crews Tries To Make Amends With Gabrielle Union, Then Gets Dragged For ‘Black Supremacy’ Comments

Terry Crews hopped on Twitter to make amends with Gabrielle Union after he seemingly through her under the bus amid her racism claims at “America’s Got Talent.” Also, he has been getting dragged for trying to explain “black supremacy.” Sighs…

Everything inside…

Terry Crews…oh, Terry Crews.

The “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star decided to hop on Twitter to address everything that’s been going amid the death of George Floyd.

Terry decided to try and make amends with his former “America’s Got Talent” co-worker Gabrielle Union, issuing an apology to her via Twitter. You’ll recall, when Gabby came out with racism accusations behind-the-scenes at “AGT,” host Terry Crews said the absolute opposite. He made it seem like Gabby was making things up by saying “AGT” was one of the most diverse workplaces he has ever worked at and that he didn’t experience any racism.

 

The murder of George Floyd has forced me to search my heart to find out what more I can do, as a human being, as a citizen, and more specifically as a Black man, to ensure our community can not only survive but thrive in this new world.

Whites have always had privilege in a society that has systemic racism built in, a fact that has been proven over and over again with the senseless deaths of unarmed Black men and women— with no one being held accountable.

— terry crews (@terrycrews) June 4, 2020

 

But I also see that I am privileged as man, in a society that also has sexism built in. This privilege carries over into my community as a Black man in relationship with Black women.

If we are to move forward as a people we must do the work required to heal the relationships in our community first. To whom much is given, much is required. I have a huge responsibility —and I vow to honor it.

— terry crews (@terrycrews) June 4, 2020

 

No word from Gabby, but yeah, he can save it.

Oh…and then he said some foolishness about “black supremacy.”

 

Please know that everything I’ve said comes from a spirit of love and reconciliation, for the Black community first, then the world as a whole, in hopes to see a better future for Black people.

“Please know that everything I’ve said comes from a spirit of love and reconciliation, for the Black community first, then the world as a whole, in hopes to see a better future for Black people,” Terry tweeted.

Black supremacy? Terry, just stop. STAWP.

Peep more of his tweets below:

I believe it is important we not suffer from groupthink, and we keep minds of our own, and be allowed to ask difficult questions to each other. I believe this dialogue is important as we get through this trauma together. I love you.

Kevin, I’ve learned that people will take anything you say and twist it for their own evil. Anything. https://t.co/FszLI1pYbu

— terry crews (@terrycrews) June 8, 2020

 

I agree. I’m not discussing white people here. there are "gatekeepers of Blackness" within our own community who decide who’s Black and who’s not. I have often been called out for not being "black enough". How can that be? https://t.co/Tt9Og866x6

— terry crews (@terrycrews) June 8, 2020

 

He also explained what he meant by black supremacy:

 

I understand, Tyler. I was not saying Black supremacy exists, because it doesn’t. I am saying if both Black and Whites don’t continue to work together– bad attitudes and resentments can create a dangerous self-righteousness. That’s all. https://t.co/YLWGnpj8fl

Ummm … OK.

Meanwhile, Gabby’s husband Dwyane Wade claims his family has been being stalked after Gabby spoke out about racism behind-the-scenes at “AGT.” She recently filed a complaint against NBC Universal, “AGT” creator Simon Cowell, Fremantle and Syco.

"When these negotiations started my house started being watched and my family started being followed," D. Wade tweeted. “My daughter couldn’t even go to swim class without us being trailed by people looking for answers. Well y’all have the answers and y’all still don’t wanna listen to them," he continued.

And he’s stanning for his woman.

"Y’all have deemed her a liar after months of trying to inform y’all of the issues in the work place and also make sure other employees of color that comes after her won’t have the same experiences,” he continued.

Instead of looking thru the lens of someone who has been an advocate for the black and brown community, for women and for rape victims. https://t.co/bjnVzug6gi

— DWade (@DwyaneWade) June 4, 2020

 

So instead of making sure your work environment is a a better place for everyone. Y’all have decided that she what? Made it all up because she lost a job? She’s a black women in Hollywood she has lost out on many jobs https://t.co/bjnVzug6gi

Horrible Histories – The Tudors lyrics

[Intro]
Anyone whose lived around these parts,
Or ever knew’d us,
Is well aware that you should never mess with the Tudors.

[Verse 1]
My Grandad Henry Seventh,
He beat King Richard,
That’s him pictured,
Defeating the Tyke.

[Verse 2]
He liked his name so much that,
To keep alive is memory,
He called his own son Henry,
What was he like!

[Verse 3]
Everyone said Hen-er-y the eighth was a baddy,
I have to agree,
Even though he was my daddy.
(Just popping of to chop some wives.)

[Chorus]
Cos we’re Tudors,
Britain’s biggest feuders,
And just like barracudas,
We kill with methods foul.

Tudors
Each enemy a Judas,
At least we’re not as rude as,
Simon Cowell.

[Verse 4]
My reign was quite notorious,
I liked to hunt and slaughter,
But then you had a daughter,
Mary was her name,
It was a son I wanted,
So I divorced her mother,
Then wife two had another,
A girl? Not again!
(That’s me your talking about! )

[Chorus]
Tudor,
Superior to you duh,
Who followed me as ruler,
Best not to ask.

[Verse 5]
It must have been my laddie,
Yes sicky little Eddie,
Was I’ll and soon got deady
And who came next?

[Verse 6]
Your daughters then took over,
First came Bloody Mary,
My sisters rule was scary,
So all hail meeeeeee

[Chorus]
Tudors,
The history books reviewed us,
As nutters and big bruisers,
Who kill and cull.

[Outro]
I never had an heir,
So our reign ended there,
We my not have been fair,
But we were never dull
