Maya Jama fans think she’s dating Ben Simmons after matching photos

Maya Jama fans could give Columbo a run for his money as they’ve spotted various clues on social media that might suggest she is dating NBA star Ben Simmons.

The former BBC Radio 1 presenter was first linked to Simmons, who previously dated Kendall Jenner, in 2019. 

However, things have ramped up again in recent weeks after fans noticed similarities in some of their Instagram posts. 

In one photo, Maya – who has just shut down claims she’s dating Burberry boss Riccardo Tisci – is seen sitting on a countertop holding a wine glass in a large plush kitchen that’s said to belong to Ben.

Her bright smile isn’t what has drawn attention though as the TV star is wearing a pair of long red shorts with the LA Lakers logo which, perhaps coincidentally, Ben wears in an Instagram post shared in October. 

Maya, 26, received a negative comment under her post with a troll writing: ‘Posting in his house before he’s claimed you because he’s not liking. Yikes.’ 

Ben, 24, jumped in to defend his rumoured girlfriend and hit back in a now-deleted comment: ‘Ayyy don’t be talking to my girl like that now smh.’

As if that wasn’t enough, one eagle-eyed fan spotted Ben outside a store in the US, walking beside a woman who looked a lot like Maya. In a photo of the pair shared on social media, the woman could be seen wearing a green tracksuit which Maya has been pictured in recently. 

‘Just saw Ben Simmons at Target,’ the social media user captioned the image. 

Showing his affection for the presenter, Ben left a heart eye and head blown emoji under a photo of her looking stunning as per.

It comes after a source recently claimed that things were ‘hotting up for Maya and Ben’. 

They told The Mirror: ‘They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot. They had a fun two weeks together. It’s nice to see her so happy.’ 

More than a year ago, another source said Maya and Ben were ‘taking time to get to know each other to see if there’s a real spark’. 

Maya, who split from Stormzy in 2019, is yet to speak out about the rumours but she was quick to dispel speculation that she was dating fashion designer Tisci. 

The TV star was pictured with her legs draped over the designer prompting fans to assume they were enjoying a romance. However, Maya denied the claims and told fans to ‘chill’, adding: ‘He’s my honey not my mansss [sic].’
