NBA superstar Kevin Durant likes to keep his personal life to himself, but when his engagement to WNBA player Monica Wright went south, it was hard for the athlete to stop the rumors surrounding their demise.

Eventually Monica told the media the engagement didn’t work out because she’s at a different place than Kevin is spiritually, but now KD is opening up and telling his side of the story.

He tells GQ:

“I had a fiancée, but…I really didn’t know how to, like, love her, you know what I’m saying? We just went our separate ways. We was just hanging out, chilling. And I felt the energy. I felt, I need to do this right now. And I just did it. I was like…We’re engaged right now? We’re about to get married? So I was just like, cool! I love this girl. But I didn’t love her the right way.”

Kevin also says he’s worried he may end up alone:

“I go to sleep at night, like, ‘Am I gonna be alone forever?'”

And when it comes to those infamous “You the real MVP” memes, KD says they piss him off:

“I was like, man, that was a real emotional moment for me, and you making a joke about it! Damn. Y’all don’t really believe in sh*t. You don’t have no morals or nothing. You don’t care about nothing but just making fun…I was serious as hell saying that, you know what I’m saying?”


  1. “I didn’t love her right.” Typical BULLSH-T men say when they had a good woman but decided sleep around anyway.

  2. I like KD but I’m not feeling his new try hard image. It’s like he’s always mad and sad all the time, like Drake. We don’t need another Drake.

  3. Those memes are funny as hell though. Anyway, this is just the PC way of him saying he was out here being a THOT while he was engaged to her and she wasn’t having that sh-t. Good for her.

  4. I said from the beginning that him and Monica were moving too fast. You see this with a lot of guys they think they want to settle down and ready for a commitment but in reality they aren’t. You live and you learn and this is a good experience for him not to rush into another relationship. With that being said I’m available that’s my boo I still love him lol.

  5. I think they just got all caught up in trying to have the whole Love and Basketball thing that they both rushed into everything. I mean I did think they were cute together but it takes more than that for a relationship to work.

  6. Meh, he’s just like most athletes. Settling down seems cool until he actually does it. Then he remembers there’s a lot of women out here dreaming to sleep with him, so he thinks he can sneak and start entertaining them. Monica found out and ended it like she should have. He may pull a Kobe and get with some ditzy chick in a few years who doesn’t mind him cheating as long as he buys her nice gifts.
