In the NBA, Christian Wood requires no introduction. He currently plays for the Houston Rockets and hopes to become an All-Star. His personal life, including whether or not he has a partner, is mostly unknown.
According to speculations, the NBA superstar played high school basketball for Findlay Prep. In 2012, he assisted the Findlay Pilots in winning 54 consecutive games and the ESPN National High School Invitational.
In 2013, he was ranked as the No. 36 overall player by Rivals, the No. 10 in his position by Scout, and the No. 71 overall prospect by ESPN.
Wood then attended UNLV, where he played men’s basketball for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels from 2013 to 2015.
Wood was chosen to the first team All-Mountain West and entered the 2015 NBA draft. Everyone who has followed his career is aware of this, but what about his romantic relationships?
Who is dating Christian Wood?
Unknown who the athlete is currently dating, but he was previously involved with reality television star Maya Benberry. Ex-girlfriend of Wood rose to fame after appearing in Catching Kelce, a Bachelor-style reality show where she gained the chance to date NFL player Travis Kelce.
Unfortunately, their relationship failed, and the reality star eventually admitted to cheating. She later appeared in season 2 of the MTV reality show Ex on the Beach, where she sought to start over with her ex-partner.
This attempt also failed, and Wood and Benberry were soon believed to be dating. When the couple’s relationship was made public, a dispute ensued. According to sources, Benberry reportedly stole Wood from her closest buddy.
However, the reality actress took the charges seriously and defended herself on Instagram, which Side Action reprinted.
She stated that everything reported about her was incorrect and pleaded with Janelle Shanks, a Bad Girls Club alum and her friend from Ex on the Beach, to stop spreading these false rumors.
Christian Wood Was Dumped by His Girlfriend
Wood kept silent and did not address the issue whereas Benberry spoke the truth. And it appears that the romance ended prematurely. Wood appears to have had a girlfriend before he began dating Benberry.
The athlete inked a three-year, $41 million contract with the Houston Rockets during the 2020 summer. After that, he spoke with The Ringer about his career and the 2015 disaster.
The athlete was projected to be taken late in the first round of the 2015 NBA draft. His greatest concerns were confirmed when he was not selected in the second round.
Not only had he been passed over for the draft, but his girlfriend had also abandoned him. Wood stated that he dropped her off at the airport after the draft and never saw her again.
