They announced their engagement just three months back. He gave her a big diamond ring for their engagement. However, after just four months of accusing him of cheating on her, she has called off the marriage and has broken their engagement. Who are we talking about? We are talking about NBA player, Jeff Withey and Playboy Playmate of the Year, Kennedy Summers! That’s right! People are now asking, “Why did Kennedy Summers dump Jeff Withey?”. According to sources, Summers has dumped her fiance Withey because she believes that he was cheating on her with other women. The Jeff Withey-Kennedy Summers split has taken people by surprise, especially coming so soon after their highly publicized engagement.

The Players

Jeff Withey is an American professional basketball player for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He is well known for his shot blocking abilities and defensive moves. Kennedy Summers was named the Playboy Playmate of the Month in December of 2013 and the Playboy Playmate of the Year for 2014. The split came months after Summers warned the seven-foot Withey to change his philandering ways. However, it looks like Withey did not take Summers seriously and is now paying the price.

The Warning

Four months ago, Summers had accused Withey of cheating on her. She logged into his Instagram account and posted a picture of herself (flaunting her bare rear) and a ticket stub for two, with the caption: “I cheated on this girl. I told my girlfriend I was going to the movies alone and then she found this receipt. I also shouldn’t have given her my Instagram password like a dumbass.” She then went public with her suspicions as she wrote the following on her Twitter: “Could I please just once date a guy who isn’t f***ing hoes on @Tinder while we’re dating.” But shortly after posting it, Summers deleted her post. The feud between the lovebirds was short lived and they must have made up because less than two months after this incident, Withey popped the question to Summers who said, “Yes!”. They were engaged and Summers was looking forward to their marriage. But according to the latest (and by the confirmation on Withey’s Twitter) the two have split, yet again. Withey claims the end of their relationship had nothing to do with cheating, and added that he has never cheated on Summers.

Withey’s Defensive Move

His tweet on Wednesday reads “News outlets keep saying that I “allegedly” cheated on my ex-fiancee Kennedy Summers. Let me just make it very clear. I never cheated!!”. Withey tweeted out a number of different tweets after that, attempting to put the cheating rumors to rest. He added that he still loves and cares for Summers, but was clearly not happy about her blabbing their business to TMZ, a well known celebrity tabloid.

Blame it on Social Media

Summers’ representative has said that social media has played a big role in the Jeff Withey and Kennedy Summers breakup. He said that social media created many issues within their relationship and has claimed one more happy relationship. No one knows exactly when the split happened, only that the two have broken up and are no longer engaged. It seems that this time they might actually be “over.”
