It’s well-known that the Currys are a good family. Sonya and Dell Curry met in college, they had successful careers while they raised their three children, and their sons Steph and Seth grew up to be successful professional basketball players. The Currys are an elite family and they are very well-respected in the NBA and beyond. Sonya and Dell have been together 33 g–damn years. Their kids are grown and out of the house and these are the golden years. Except that Sonya and Dell can’t stand each other anymore and she filed for divorce.
Sonya and Dell Curry are ending their marriage, PEOPLE confirms. The parents of NBA stars Stephen and Seth Curry have been separated and Sonya, 55, filed for divorce in North Carolina in June. The pair, who met at Virginia Tech University and wed in 1988, also share daughter Sydel.
“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,” Sonya and Dell, 58, tell PEOPLE. “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.”
Golden State Warriors star Stephen, 33, and his wife, Sweet July magazine founder and cookbook author, Ayesha Curry share three children: daughters Riley and Ryan as well as son Canon. Philadelphia 76ers player Seth, 31, shares daughter Carter with his wife Callie Rivers Curry. Sydel, 26, is expecting her first child, a baby boy, with her NBA husband Damion Lee.
Dell was in the NBA from 1986 until 2002 and played for several teams including the Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors. During his nearly two decades in the league, he was a star guard on the Charlotte Hornets for 10 seasons.
Sonya and Dell definitely shepherded their sons into successful NBA careers and they were often at their sons’ games. They have even been featured in some of Seth and Steph’s sponsorships and ad campaigns. I’ve always thought that Steph settled down with Ayesha so young because he had his parents’ example of a good, strong marriage and partnership. Anyway, the whole thing is just sad… and a little bit funny. Like, 33 years together and suddenly the grass is greener on the other side? Was there a side piece? Apparently, she was the one who filed. So… yeah. I think he was probably messing around.
This thread was maybe the best thing to happen, please stay past “Do you like tumeric???? Charcoal ice cream??? You better learn to like it” and “You gonna be wearing a ‘hottie’ shirt by Thanksgiving… You better ask your wife to forgive you…You better go listen to lemonade and pray about it.”
