In their divorce proceedings, Steph Curry’s parents have both accused the other of adultery.
Sonya Curry, 55, filed divorce papers in North Carolina on June 14 against Dell, 58, claiming that his’marital misbehavior’ comprised many affairs that were known to family and friends, according to TMZ.
‘In one final act of trying to protect [him] and his family from any public exposure and scrutiny,’ Sonya said she didn’t publicly divulge her knowledge of Dell’s adultery.
Sonya, who claims she and Dell divorced in March 2020, said she was ‘left with no choice’ except to divulge his infidelity after he accused her of it.
Sonya had engaged in ‘acts of unlawful sexual misconduct’ before they parted, according to court documents, and then lied about it.
According to legal documents obtained by the site, Dell claims that Sonya is presently living with another guy and hence is not entitled to alimony.
Sonya admitted in court documents that she was dating a man in the months after she and Dell divorced, but she denied living with him, claiming that she lives on her own because Dell refused to allow her stay in the family home after their divorce.
Steph was born in 1988, Seth was born in 1990, and daughter Sydel was born in 1994. The former couple met in college at Virginia Tech and have three children: Steph, Seth, and Sydel.
Sonya and Dell declared in a joint statement to People that they had decided to break their marriage “after exploring a trial separation over the past year and much deliberate deliberation.”
‘As this comes with a lot of pain, our aim and desire is for our family’s happiness to continue,’ the statement read. ‘We are grateful for all of our many blessings and achievements!
‘We will continue to be committed to and supportive of our children and grandchildren, and we will stay connected.’ We want that our privacy be maintained and that our family be prayed for as we move forward.’
Dell was a guard in the NBA from 1986 to 2002, spending the first ten years of his career with the Charlotte Hornets before moving on to the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Toronto Raptors.
Sonya has presided over a Christian Montessori School, while he has worked as a commentator for the Hornets since 2009.
