Are Dell and Sonya Curry doing a partner swap? Estranged couple rumored to be dating ex-spouses
Stephen Curry's parents, Dell and Sonya, showed up at the NBA Finals between the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics with their alleged new partners. The duo split up in August 2021 after 33 years of marriage and accused each other of cheating.
While Sonya was seen with her rumored boyfriend, former NFL player Steven Johnson, Dell was spotted with his rumored new girlfriend, Nicki Smith. What's interesting about the situation is that Steven and Nicki were formerly married to each other. This led netizens to spread the bizarre theory that Stephen's parents were indulging in a partner swap.

After an image started spreading on Twitter showing Steven and Nicki posing in a family photo with their children, which led to people realizing the two were once a couple. "Sonya's new boyfriend is actually Dell's college friend and their family is actually close family friends with the Currys," said a source, as per The New York Post. The source further added that "they all knew each other very well."
Users on the Internet were amused by the dynamics and the supposed "partner swap" between Dell, Sonya, Steven, and Nicki.

While one user said, "Lmao what in the entanglement is goin on...." another felt, "Steph's parents turned his all-time NBA f**king Finals performance into a trailer for a Wife Swap reboot. Even by the Association's outrageously high standards, that's a preposterous amount of petty." A third replied, "Man, what in the f? These people playing games that don't need to be played. #dellcurry."

"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. 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," Sonya and Dell told People when they announced their split.
"I had to make sure I was in that moment with both of them separately and this wasn't just this whole kind of thing. That is how I choose to approach that. Because it is challenging. I could be mad and be like, 'Y'all effed this up.' I could have that approach. But it's going to be an acknowledgment of both of y'all in terms of how y'all raised me. The calmness I have in myself is because of y'all," Stephen told The Ringer about how he felt regarding his parent's divorce.
