The Brooklyn Nets just underwent a complete renovation of their roster. From having three of the greatest players of this generation a year ago, the Nets are now left with none. Sure, the trades brought them successful role players and players with star potential to pair up with Ben Simmons, but filling the void left by Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and James Harden? That’s going to be difficult.

Ben Simmons has now lost three All-NBA teammates in the span of one year. From breaking ties with Joel Embiid, to not even getting a fair shot with KD and Kyrie. However, breaking ties is something Simmons is quite used to.

If one looks at Ben’s dating history, they’d know what I’m talking about. From names like Kendall Jenner to Maya Jama, and recently, Eiza Gonzalez, Ben has been with quite the women. However, one alleged relationship landed him in legal trouble.

Simmons and Megan Thee Stallion

In 2020, Megan Thee Stallion suffered gunshot wounds to her feet. She alleged it was Tory Lanez who shot her, and filed a case against him. The Los Angeles County prosecutors charged Tory with felony assault and firearms violations. The jury found Lanez guilty on three counts.

However, before he went down, Lanez and his attorneys tried defending his actions, and infact, managed to bring Nets’ Ben Simmons into the mix. They tried to claim that Megan Thee Stallion was shot by her friend Kelsey Nicole. The attorneys claimed jealousy existed due to s*xual relations with several same men, including Ben Simmons.

However, Simmons was quick to deny these rumors, and took it to his Instagram story. He posted a clip of Rick Ross, denying the accusations.

The defense was a last hurrah by Lanez’s attorneys, and it ultimately failed.
