We definitely didn’t have this on our 2021 bingo card.
TMZ Sports exclusively reports that Steph Curry’s parents, Sonya and Dell, are heading to splitsville. According to the celebrity gossip site, Sonya was the one who filed the papers to make it official.
Per TMZ Sports:
55-year-old Sonya put in the paperwork back on June 14 in North Carolina … according to court records. A court official tells us the divorce is still ongoing.
Details surrounding the reason for the split are unclear — we’re working on it.
The couple who were constant fixtures at either Steph’s Golden State Warriors home games or their other son Seth’s Trail Blazers games could be in the stands either rocking their son’s jerseys or gear that featured both teams logos when their professionally hooping sons faced off against each other during the 2019 NBA playoffs.
While Steph is still currently scorching the net from long distance as a member of the Golden State Warriors, Seth now plays for Philadelphia 76ers under the coaching leadership of his father-in-law Doc Rivers.
Dell (57) and Sonya (55) first met at Virginia Tech and were both student-athletes while attending the university. The couple would give birth to Steph in 1988, Seth in 1990, and daughter Sydel in 1994.
What makes this story even more interesting is that it is breaking on Seth Curry’s 31st birthday. That’s one hell of a present.
TMZ Sports reached out to “Steph’s camp” for comments on this parent’s divorce but has not gotten any word back. With news hitting the timeline of Sonya becoming a free agent, the thirties (who don’t stand a chance in hell) are making it known they wouldn’t mind hollering at her.
