NBA star, Steph Curry’s parents have both accused the other of cheating, in their divorce proceedings.
According to TMZ, Sonya Curry, 55, filed paperwork June 14 in North Carolina for the split from Dell, 58, claiming that his ‘marital misconduct’ included multiple affairs that were known by family and friends.
Sonya said she didn’t publicly reveal her knowledge of Dell’s cheating ‘in one final act of trying to protect [him] and family from possible public exposure and scrutiny.’
Sonya – who says she and Dell separated in March of 2020 – said ‘she was left with no choice’ but to reveal his cheating after he accused her of being unfaithful.
Dell said in court docs Sonya had engaged in ‘acts of illicit sexual misconduct’ before they had separated and subsequently lied about it.
In legal docs reviewed by the outlet, Dell alleged that Sonya is currently residing with another man, and therefore should not be eligible to collect alimony.
Sonya said in court docs that she has been dating a man in the months after she and Dell separated, but denied living with him, saying she lives on her own, as Dell would not let her stay in the family home following their split.
The former couple, who are parents to three children, met in college at Virginia Tech, and welcomed Steph in 1988, Seth in 1990, and daughter Sydel in 1994.
In a joint statement to People, Sonya and Dell said that ‘after exploring a trial separation over the past year and much thoughtful consideration, we have decided to end our marriage.
‘As this comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus and desire is for our family’s continued happiness,’ the statement continued. ‘We are so thankful for all the many blessings and successes!
‘We stay committed to and supportive of our children and grandchildren and will remain on connected paths. We ask that our privacy be respected and prayer for our family as we move forward.’
Dell played as a guard in the NBA from 1986 thru 2002, spending 10 years on the Charlotte Hornets, with stints on the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Toronto Raptors.
He has worked as a commentator for the Hornets since 2009, while Sonya has presided over a Christian Montessori School.
