It comes after he popped the question in December and she has frequently travelled back and forth to America, where he plays basketball for the Brooklyn Nets.

A source told the Sun on Sunday: “Maya called it off engagement after things came to head last month.

“She is not going back to New York now. It’s heartbreaking for both of them, especially as they were so committed to each other.

“They’re both young and want to focus on their careers.
