Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant is normally pretty quiet about his love life. But in an interview with GQ, he spoke a bit on his broken engagement with WNBA player Monica Wright:
“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.” Monica Wright, WNBA player, something like a high school sweetheart. One night Kevin got so full of feelings he just up and proposed to her. “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.”
WE broke the story, Monica eventually moved on with another basketball player, and also got engaged. Now according to our source, a wedding date has been set for the former WNBA player and her new fiance Michael Rogers.

Here’s some more on Monica’s 2nd fiance Michael Rogers below:
Coach Michael Rogers is an Alumni of Valparaiso University where he played 4 years of division 1 basketball under the coaching of the one of the most winning-est coaches in the history of the NCAA, Coach Homer Drew.
Throughout his 4 years of playing he has learned a lot and developed his skills to the point where he is a member of the Jamaica national basketball team and also play professional basketball in Europe.
Throughout his college career and after he has always enjoyed working with players of all ages and even volunteering at the local YMCA to help players develop their skill of the game just like he was able to do. He was fortunate enough to have almost played every position in college so he has a good grasp of the work that needs to be done to develop each area of the game. He is original a shooting guard/small forward so he has in depth knowledge of those positions which would make his specialties; ball handling, shooting, footwork, defense, pivoting, playing off screens, moving without the ball and passing. Coach Michael focuses on teaching the small details that will give you that extra edge on the court.
