His sister recently appeared to shade his ex-girlfriend Kendall Jenner online.
And on Saturday, Ben Simmons looked to have shrugged off the drama in his hometown of Melbourne, Australia.
The 23-year-old NBA star cut a relaxed figure as he stepped out of his hotel with a green Louis Vuitton messenger bag, retailing for AU $2,450.

Ben, who signed a lucrative sneaker deal with Nike, sported the brand’s black and white windcheater and sweatpants.
He added black sneakers and a cap, as he strolled along the Southbank Promenade with his entourage, who carried the Philadelphia 76ers guard’s shopping bags.
Ben handed a busker a few coins and proceeded to dance and clap, before heading back to his hotel.
Following Kendall’s split from Ben in May, his sister Liv Simmons unleashed her fury.

Their feud started after Kendall, 23, responded last week to a meme linking her to five different NBA players, including her most recent ex, Ben.
Hitting back, Kendall tweeted, ‘2 out of 5 accurate, thanks’.
Liv, who recently moved to Melbourne after a period living in America, then hopped in with a stinging comment.
‘I just wouldn’t ever wanna be known for dating athletes. Like imagine working your way through a league. Not a team a LEAGUE,’ she wrote.

Moments later, Liv tweeted again: ‘I’d rather be crazy than be a h**’.
While Liv didn’t mention Kendall by name in her Twitter posts, fans of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star guessed who she was talking about.
As thousands of people tweeted abuse at her, Liv hit back with: ‘I didn’t say any names but if the shoes fits WEAR it’.
After her social media activity made headlines, Liv tweeted: ‘Once again the internet proves me right. I didn’t name any names but clearly the shoe fits.’

Ben and his siblings were mostly born in the inner-Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy, before later relocating to Newcastle, NSW for several years.
He started playing basketball at the age of seven for the Newcastle Hunters under-12s team.
When Ben turned 10, the family returned to Melbourne, where the young athlete played for the local Knox Raiders, before embarking upon a career in the U.S.
Last Wednesday, Ben signed a $242million contract extension with the Philadelphia 76ers, making him the highest-paid Australian sportsman of all time.
