Maya split with her basketball pro boyfriend Ben earlier this week, with the pair reportedly struggling to balance their busy schedules and maintaining a long distance relationship.

With Ben based in Brooklyn, New York, and Maya in London, a source told NY Post  that the couple were ‘from different worlds’.

Citing it as ‘one of the hardest decisions of their lives,  the insider explained: ‘It’s been a difficult time for them, they now understand they don’t have the time they thought to dedicate to this relationship.’

‘After many long nights and hours of heartfelt talks, they finally realised as much as they love each other, their nonstop careers and endless travel have made it incredibly impossible to make it work,’ the source added.

Ben proposed to Maya last Christmas following a whirlwind seven-month romance – after she spent the festive period at his £3.7million mansion in New Jersey.

And following the breakup news, Ben was booed as he attended the US Open in New York on Saturday.

The Melbourne-born star attended Australian Ajla Tomljanović’s third-round defeat of Serena Williams (7-5, 6-7, 6-1) at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center on Saturday. 

But when the Brooklyn Nets player appeared on the court’s jumbotron, he was immediately booed by the hostile crowd.
