Ben Simmons Posts Hilarious Clip On Instagram To Deny Having Smashed Megan Thee Stallion

Brooklyn Nets’ swingman Ben Simmons took to Instagram this week to deny allegations that he and rapper Megan Thee Stallion used to get freaky in the sheets. During the defense’s opening statement in the Tory Lanez trial, it was said that Simmons and the female rapper were intimate and that caused an argument between Megan and Kelsey Harris.

According to reports, while addressing the jurors during opening statements, Tory Lanez’s attorney suggested it could’ve been Meg’s friend, Kelsey Harris, who fired the shots, after the women were arguing. It was suggested that Meg had a history of hooking up with men Kelsey had been with, including Simmons.

Lanez’s attorney George Mgdesyan is using a jealous woman narrative as an alternative explanation for what happened to Meg. It was Meg’s hooking up with Kelsey’s exes that caused the two women to argue and for Kelsey to shoot Meg.

That’s not the story the prosecution painted in their opening statement.

Deputy District Attorney Alexander Bott told the jury that Lanez told Meg to “dance, b-tch,” as he shot five rounds at her.

Looks like Simmons was collateral damage in Mgdesyan’s opening statement. He’s just trying to get his client acquitted of the charges.

The 26-year-old No. 1 overall draft pick in 2016 is working his way back after missing all of last season, dealing with mental health issues, a trade request, and offseason back surgery.

He started the year slow for Brooklyn as he was working the rust off his game. He got into a good groove around mid-November and was showing incredibly promising signs in his movement, defense, and ability to push the pace. Simmons then suffered a knee injury and missed the next five games.

Simmons has returned to action and is looking to build on his progress from November.

The Nets are laying their best basketball of the season. After a dismal 6-9 start to the season, the team has gone 11-3 and are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference. They’re only a game in the loss column out of third place.

For the Nets strong play to continue head coach Jacque Vaughn knows he’ll need Simmons to be at his best.

“I told [Ben] Simmons, I’m going to try my best to put you in a position, whether that’s the group I put out there with, whether that’s the time you check in — but our ongoing conversations to try to make him feel comfortable as a basketball player, that’s my challenge,” Vaughn told reporters at a media session in Sacramento last month.
The Lanez trial has garnered a lot of attention, and it will be interesting to see what the reaction will be when the case inevitably reaches its conclusion. How many more bombshells or NBA players’ names will come up during the trial?

Lanez has been charged with discharging a firearm with gross negligence, an assault with a semiautomatic firearm and carrying an unregistered firearm in a vehicle charge.
