NBA star Ben Simmons celebrates his birthday with a private performance by a Mariachi band – after spending $23million on a stunning LA mansion and pulling out of the Tokyo Olympics

He recently announced he wouldn’t be joining the Australian Boomers squad at the upcoming Tokyo Olympics.

But basketball star Ben Simmons showed no sign of disappointment on Tuesday as he celebrated his 25th birthday in style.

The Philadelphia 76ers star, who famously dated model Kendall Jenner, enjoyed a private performance by a Mariachi band at his home in Los Angeles.

In a video posted to Instagram Stories, the band members are seen performing in Ben’s kitchen while he claps along on the second level of his home.

It comes after the Melbourne-born sports star purchased a new house in one of Los Angeles‘ most exclusive suburbs.

He spent $23.3million (US$17.5million) on a stunning property in a gated community in Hidden Hills, reported Dirt.com.

Hidden Hills is home to retired basketballer Dwyane Wade and his wife Gabrielle Union, rappers Drake and Lil Wayne, and of course the Kardashian family.

The athlete’s mansion features an ultra-modern design throughout.

The first floor opens out to a minimally designed open-plan kitchen and living area, decked out with top-of-the-range appliances.

There are seven spacious bedrooms, including the master bedroom on the second floor which overlooks the pool, as well as eight bathrooms.

The home is an outdoor entertainer’s dream with a large swimming pool, cabana and landscaped garden.

Simmons’ property also has an impressive guesthouse, a giant fireplace, marble-clad bathroom and its own plunge pool.

Simmons indicated last month that while he remained committed to representing the Boomers in the Olympics now was not the time, following a string of inconsistent performances after Philadelphia’s early exit from the NBA playoffs.

Boomers coach Brian Goorjian said: ‘It is a pretty rough time for him right now and I know it is something that he wanted to do, but the timing just hasn’t worked.

‘The best thing for everybody right now is for him to go on and develop that skill package and improve in a couple of areas for his next season in the NBA, but the Boomers are always here for him.

‘We wanted him to know that in his time of need, the culture and the guys here are behind him and support him.’
