Does Liz Cambage have a boyfriend? The 29-year-old has been the subject of plenty of media attention lately, thanks to a viral video in which she plays a friendly game against male NBA stars. Now, her fans really want to know if she’s dating someone.
Does Liz Cambage have a boyfriend?
The Daily Mail earlier this year reported about the basketball player’s supposed heterosexuality, but Cambage herself has put any doubts to bed, revealing she’s straight in a recent interview with Playboy.
“I’ve never embraced my sexuality in public,” said Cambage.
“Me doing Playboy is me celebrating my sexuality like, ‘Yeah, I am a straight six-foot-eight woman who likes to have sex.’
“I’m a human; it’s what we do. As a female athlete, I feel like I’m not allowed to be sexy and I’m not allowed to be that person.
“All society wants from me is to sit down, shut up, go to training and play my sport.”
Cambage’s previous relationships
Cambage is currently single, but once had an on-again, off-again relationship with Australian Football League player Alex Lee while in her early 20s.
But the pair split a couple of years ago after a knee injury to Cambage opened her eyes into who was really there in her time of need.
The 6’8” star has also been in the headlines for her Twitter spat with Australian basketball player Andrew Bogut, with the duo colliding over political matters in the country.
Glittering worldwide career
The 29-year-old has certainly seen plenty of the world in her basketball career so far, beginning with Melbourne-based outfit Dandenong Rangers in 2007.
A scholarship at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra followed soon after, but she soon found herself back in Melbourne with the Bulleen Boomers.
That spell playing in the Women’s National Basketball League came to an end with a switch to Tulsa Shock in the Women’s National Basketball League in the US in 2011.
Since then, Cambage has had spells in clubs across the US and indeed China, but she has now gone full circle in a remarkable career.
The center made a return home earlier this year, rejoining her first club Dandenong Rangers, who have since rebranded as the Southside Flyers.
