Sean is basically Ben's manager/full time assistant, he's constantly with Ben (almost every day) so he's probably Ben's closest confidant - as someone else mentioned, Ben recently bought him a car for his birthday.

Olivia does have a history talking lot of you know what, but she's never said anything like this. She just tweeted about her mom having her on the pill since 11 - what the actual ****? This family clearly has some issues they need to knuckle out.


Ah, thanks for clarifying.

That isn’t unusual either. Onset of puberty has dropped significantly per decade. But that’s an entirely different story.

Every family/familial ties has issues, big or small
never heard/met/witnessed a “normal” one from any tier of socieo/economic status. Add all of sudden going from middle/to upper class all the way to uber Rich/Status. Many Many factors at play.

I highly doubt that Simmons is influenced by that, which he must have known (if true) for a while anyway.

He said in an interview that there was a lot of stuff going on. What else could he mean? You don't think this would qualify?

I got the impression that what's new is his sister going public and that the family already has known what is happening for some time now. Assuming his sister is telling the truth. In any case, i would be surprised if that's the reason for Simmons performance. Players go through difficult times all the time (divorces, death/illness in the family etc) without that necessarily impacting their performance. Simmons is probably going through a slump and people are trying to rationalize it. Slumps happen to everyone.

Maybe, I just don't think we can assume. We know this guy is mentally not as strong as some players as far as confidence goes. Anything can set him off. I'd say this qualifies, but perhaps you're right. However, given the fact that he said he had stuff going on, I'd hedge my bets on this being it. Now, if we see instagram feeds of him hanging out with Sean, or giving him another car, than you're probably right lol.

man this entire situation is so ****. not saying olivia is lying but speaking specifically about ben in this situation (as this is his thread afterall), imagine being in the middle of all of this, on one side its his sister, his other side his brother who he works with everyday. when people get approached with scenarios like this they tend to withdraw completely....eyeatoma mentioned in another thread that bens been streaming a lot lately....makes sense that he's trying to distract himself from this stuff. what a **** situation man

if ben starts posting stuff with his brother again then it kinda tells us what he thinks about this whole thing and that it might mean his sister was just having another bipolar ep. also in her tweets she mentioned that this was 'her truth' not 'the truth.'

recently its become a pretty popular phrase by people who allege they've been sexually assaulted but i dont think we should have that discussion on here lol

Ben’s said something was impacting him personally if this is it then yes it would affect your play. He ain’t a robot it’s just a really bad thing that happened. And if he’s close with both

Ain’t rationalization. I’m sure everyone has had/heard a story close by that had bad/sad/disaster ending to it.
