Stephen Curry’s mother Sonya Curry files for divorce from Dell Curry; rampant cheating accusations




Oh man, trouble in paradise! This past week, it was reported that Sonya Curry, mother to NBA players Stephen and Seth Curry, has filed for divorce from their father Dell Curry on June 14.

According to TMZ, there are court documents that show each party accusing the other of infidelity. 

Dell and Sonya have been married for over 30 years, tying the knot back in 1988. They attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University together where Dell was a basketball star and Sonya was a volleyball player.

Dell claims that she cheated on him with Steven Johnson, a former 1988 NFL draft pick who had attended college with them back in the 1980s. 

In the documents, he states that Sonya, “…began her extramarital affair with Mr. Johnson during the marriage and prior to the date of separation, and she lied to [Dell] each time she cheated on him.”

Dell also claims that Sonya is currently living with Johnson in Tennessee and should not be able to collect alimony due to her actions. 

In response to the accusations, Sonya stated that while she is currently in a new relationship, the relationship began after she and Dell separated back in March of 2020. She further claims that Dell cheated with different women throughout their marriage, and that “family and close friends knew about it.” Sonya claims she lives alone and not with Steven. 

Their sons have yet to comment on this matter.
