Harper Hempel keeps her relationship with Jamal Murray private.

Harper and Jamal met while they were in college, and although Jamal moved to Denver to pursue his NBA career while they were at the University of Kentucky, Harper chose to stay in college and get her degree in Marketing and Digital Media. 

In fact, Harper and Jamal keep their relationship so private that the 24-year-old photographer doesn’t have any pictures of Jamal on her Instagram, which probably stems from their scandal from earlier in the year. 

Harper Hempel is no stranger to controversy. 

In March of this year, both Harper Hempel and Jamal Murray came face-to-face with a major scandal. The athletes became the talk of the internet after someone hacked Jamal’s Instagram account and posted a video of the basketball star engaging in, how to say, "intimate" activities that are meant for the bedroom.

The video also featured Harper, and she had previously taken to Twitter to ask fans who had a copy of the tape to delete the video. She has since deactivated her account; however, she remains active on Instagram.

“First and foremost I would like to apologize to my fans. My account has been hacked, currently working on the issue. Thanks,” Jamal Murray wrote in an apology on social media.
