Relationship with Jamal Murray
As we mentioned, Harper attended the University of Kentucky. This is the same University where the NBA star Jamal Murray went and the two met. Jamal was just a freshman playing basketball when he met Harper.
Harper likes basketball too as her father is a part of the basketball community and she grew up watching the NBA. This was probably one reason why she fell for a basketball player. Murray and Hempel started to date when Jamal was on the college team. At this time, Hempel was still in her sophomore year.
Both Jamal and Harper were the stars of their teams though and they got attracted towards each other. Murray got drafted to the Denver Nuggets in the 2016 Draft and this was when he moved to Denver while harper continued her studies. The coupled stayed in a relationship even though they were far from each other. They got back together physically when Hempel finished her studies.
While the couple is still going strong, Jamal has to stay away from Murray because of the NBA. He is currently playing so, he has to follow NBA’s pandemic restriction and this has prevented the couple to really be together for a long time. Harper had to celebrate her birthday without her boyfriend Jamal.
Scandal and Social Medias Hiatus
Harper used to post pictures with Jamal regularly. But an explicit video went viral and both had to get off social media. They became very private after this incident and kind of stopped sharing their pictures with one another. Harper doesn’t even have a picture currently on her Instagram. An explicit scene got uploaded through Jamal’s Instagram and the girl in the video was Harper. This gave her unwanted attention and because of this, she deactivated her account. She had more than 10K followers on her Instagram at this time. Harper just did not want any negative attention coming her way because of the video.
We don’t really know the exact extent of Harper’s net worth. But we can estimate. She is a very famous person in the marketing industry and she has her grip on the Digital media industry. Plus the fact that she works as a marketing manager means that she has got significant amount of money. We guess her total worth is more than $300,000 dollars.
