2-time All Star Ben Simmons is being linked to a trans model named Amani. She posted pics of alleged texts from him, deleting them later.
Ben Simmons has already got a chequered dating history. He dated up-and-coming rapper Tinashe in his first season in the NBA. After breaking up with her, Simmons got together with the high-profile Kendall Jenner, who’d just gotten off a relationship with Clippers star Blake Griffin.
Simmons and Jenner dated on and off for nearly 2 years, before breaking it off in 2020. Kendall was regularly seen in attendance at Ben’s games – fans even began talking of a Jenner jinx after he lost his first couple of games in her presence.
The accusations leveled at Ben Simmons by Amani
Amani shared screenshots of her alleged conversations with the Sixers point guard in a now-deleted post. She claimed that Simmons wanted to get some 5-on-1 action with her because of how much he loved her ‘performance in bed’. She added that Simmons even tried to fly her out to Philadelphia.

As soon as the story linking Amani and Simmons was first reported, she deleted her Instagram account. This threw doubt into her claims that she was actually with the Sixers star.
The Internet reacts to this tale
Understandably, the reactions from NBA fans were highly skeptical. Most people believe this was just a play by her to gain attention.

As is tradition, some people saw the funny side in the whole affair. One man even posted that Simmons might’ve been talking about the popular fast food chain called Five Guys.

There was a little bit of transphobia on the thread as well, but overall, these are the expected reactions from Twitter.
