*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.
Realizing the impact of her choice to end the engagement, Wright expressed her view of society’s perception of relationships and the stress it creates for young women.
