Kevin Durant’s girlfriend Monica Wright finally let the rumor mill off the hook. Following a Minnesota Lynx’ playoff victory, Monica Wright confirmed that she was actually Kevin Durant’s fiancé. Considering how well the pair kept it hidden that they were dating (despite having known each other since the 2006 McDonald’s High School All-American Game), this engagement has come as a big surprise.
While still wanting to keep with the wholesome, golly gee image off the court, it’s probably best for him to keep his personal dating life out of the public discussion. It makes sense when you consider that within a year or so, Monica Wright was no longer Kevin Durant’s girlfriend. Durant told 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.”
For those unaware, Monica Wright is a guard in the WNBA currently playing for the Minnesota Lynx. Durant was famously seen courtside at a WNBA game between the Los Angeles Sparks and Wright’s Lynx which marked his second courtside WNBA game in just over a month. The game in Los Angeles was broadcast on NBA TV where Durant was pressed directly about whether or not he was dating Monica Wright. Durant had no reply other than a coy smile and an unclear answer to a rather specific question.
