Despite the player’s silence with the media, it seems he may indeed be in a relationship, judging by the posts and fan encounters.

Alperen Sengun, a professional basketball player, was born to Kemal Sengun and Ayse Sengun on July 25, 2002, in Giresun, Turkey.

The Sengun family, who are Turkish Christians, constitute a minority within the predominantly Muslim population in Turkey.

The elder brother is unknown to people, but it is said that his elder brother, like Alperen, plays basketball.

Likewise, the younger sibling, Ali Can Sengun, is said to be a professional swimmer.

Even if he has numerous posts with his parents, Alperen has kept his siblings out of the media’s eyes.
