Michael’s Dating Life
As is the case with most up-and-coming players in the NBA, Michael, too, has been involved in many relationship-like connections. The NBA star has been linked with two women at the same time, with reports claiming that both of them are his girlfriends.

Now let's talk about Madison's two-women saga. November 2018 brought Michael and Izzy Morris’s relationship to the spotlight. Michael and LiAngelo Ball’s ex-girlfriend were said to be dating after the silence about Michael and Madison’s fling.
However, in December 2018, another woman’s name popped up concerning Michael. Tiffany Chantharangma, an Instagram model, was linked to Michael and even said to be his girlfriend.
