Ben Simmons has sent ex-fiance May Jama a $1 million USD ($A1.4m) legal demand as their separation begins to get messy.
The Aussie basketballer is demanding the English TV star return the $1 million diamond engagement ring given to her when they celebrated their engagement.
The NBA star got down on one knee to the Love Island host in December 2021 following a whirlwind romance.
But the long-distance relationship hit the rocks last August when Maya decided to focus on her career in the UK — and Brooklyn Nets ace Ben, 26, and Maya, 28, went their separate ways last month.
But the beauty, who last week wowed Love Island fans on her debut appearance with a string of revealing outfits, failed to hand back the huge £800,000 diamond sparkler.
And now 6ft 10in Aussie Ben has hit her with a legal letter demanding she return the ring immediately.
