Monica Wright may have sacrificed the support from fans of her relationship with Kevin Durant, but in her eyes, the decision to call of her engagement to the NBA all-star was something she stands firm on in light of guidance from a higher power.
“Yeah, in my last relationship [with NBA All-Star Kevin Durant], I had to make a decision about compromising myself as a woman. I had to make a decision to leave a relationship, which a lot of people thought I was crazy to leave, Wright told Risen Magazine regarding criticism she’s received for her faith. “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.”
Wright’s comments months after she called it quits with Durant a year after their engagement. According to reports, the WNBA standout cited her faith in putting a stop to the relationship with Oklahoma City Thunder player, who was unfaithful.
