Is Sonya Curry dating Drake? Steph Curry's mom says she has new boyfriend now
Steph Curry's mom Sonya reportedly admitted that she was seeing someone new and the relationship began after she separated from Dell in March 2020
NBA players Stephen and Seth Curry’s parents Sonya and Dell Curry are splitting after 33 years of marriage. Both are blaming each other’s infidelity as the cause of their split. As per court documents, Dell has accused Sonya of cheating on him before they separated. According to him, she was having an extramarital relationship for years with Steven Johnson, an ex-NFL player. But even as allegations fly during Dell and Sonya's messy split, Sonya is already being linked to someone new.
As per court documents, Dell claims Sonya has been living with Steven Johnson in Tennessee. Sonya responded that she has been living alone because Dell has not allowed her to live at home. Sonya reportedly admitted that she was currently dating someone but was adamant that the relationship began after she legally separated from Dell in March 2020.
As the news of the divorce went public, many online began linking Sonya with Canadian rapper, singer, and songwriter Aubrey Drake Graham, known mononymously as Drake. “drake gonna date steph curry’s mom now,” wrote a Twitter user. “Sonya Curry is back on the market? Steph better keep Drake away,” tweeted another person. One Twitter user speculated, “over/under a week til we see drake and sonya curry at nobu.” Another person speculated, “Drake gonna be in Sonya DMs soon. Don’t be surprised if TMZ catches them on a date at Oracle Park.”
