Kevin Durant and Monica Wright were almost married, but they split after they became engaged. People often forget abut these two. Now KD is dating again, who knows what's next for him. Apparently Monica has moved on, and is close to taking the plunge.
Reportedly, the two basketball stars had been heading down different roads when they became engaged. While Wright is faithful in her religious beliefs, the then Oklahoma City Thunder small forward was satisfied with his own life as it is
.“There was a lot of criticism over it. But I think God had my back in it. Because I hold to what I know to be true, that is what God will reward instead of what people on the earth think is a good catch.” She goes on to express her concern for the younger generations of girls who are challenged with learning their Godly value in a society that tells them they should act, behave, speak or dress contrary to who they are to Him. She says, “I feel like it’s harder for the younger girls. But if my story can help them in any way, then it was worth it.”
So it sounded like religion had a lot to do with their breakup. Monica was looking for a more religious man, and it appears she found him. From our tipster below.
