The bubble was tough on everyone, and Jamal Murray’s girlfriend Harper Hempel missed her boyfriend. And, with the Nuggets pursuing a deep run into the 2020 NBA playoffs, she held on to that feeling for quite some time.
Damn that bubble life!
Yes, Jamal Murray’s girlfriend is struggling through bubble life, and took to her 60k+ Instagram followers to let it be known. She posted a flower arrangement from Jamal just a few days after celebrating her 24th birthday. Jamal of course was stuck in isolation. The requisite bulging sad eye emoji accompanied the picture, with “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You,” soundtracking the clip. Obviously there was a lot of attention on the player’s being away from their families, but moment like this drove it home. Everyone was struggling… in and out of the bubble.
Now like we mentioned earlier, Jamal Murray’s girlfriend is a bit of a celebrity in her own right, with good reason. The social media influencer/model has nearly 62,000 followers as of this post date. In college she played Volleyball at the University of Kentucky, where she first met Jamal during his one season there. Her Instagram is filled with modeling shots and candids of her living her best life. Early 20s and dating one of the breakout stars in the NBA makes things pretty good. Add in Jamal just inked an extension for $170M and things are looking up for these two.
We should probably mention the hack.
It’s not all that rare or new to see private pictures and videos being hacked, stolen and spread online anymore. That in mind, it’s not entirely shocking that a graphic video was posted to Jamal’s Instagram account in early March. Jamal apologized to his fans. He stated his account was hacked, but that it was being worked on. There was no further follow up to that, frankly not that anyone needed one.
Jamal Murray’s girlfriend took to Twitter to beg people to delete the video saying “If you have the video, please delete it”. She later deactivated her Twitter account. It’s certainly easy to look at famous people and athletes and think everything is great in their world. While there are certainly luxuries they experience, there are no doubt challenges most can’t imagine. Bubble life is one thing. Millions of people seeing a potentially hacked and leaked sex tape involving one or both of the people in the relationship? Whole other monster.
