Who is Sonya Curry dating? Divorce with Dell Curry gets ugly amid cheating scandal
In the divorce documents, Sonya Curry has accused Dell Curry of 'frequent infidelity' throughout their marriage of 33 years
The news of Dell Curry and Sonya Curry's divorce came as a shock to NBA fans who have rooted for the couple as the epitome of relationship goals. For decades, the parents of Steph Curry have been hailed as the NBA parents of America, with the Curry clan remaining at the helm of national interest. Sonya Curry, 55, reportedly filed the petition for divorce against Dell Curry, her husband of 33 years, on June 14, 2021, after more than a year of separation.
While the news had left fans heartbroken, they are further shocked as the divorce between the Currys takes an ugly turn, with rampant allegations of extramarital affairs. Both Dell and Sonya Curry have accused each other of cheating during their marriage. Dell Curry revealed that his wife cheated on him with Steve Johnson, the former tight end with New England Patriots. Meanwhile, in their divorce documents, Sonya has accused Dell of "frequent infidelity" throughout their marriage.

The parents of NFL icons Stephen Curry and Seth Curry formally announced their divorce with the statement, "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."
Talking to PEOPLE, Sonya and Dell further noted, "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."
However, the reality seems to be a far cry from the amicable situation they tried to portray. "[Sonya Curry] began her extramarital affair with Mr. Johnson during the marriage and prior to the date of separation, and she lied to [Dell Curry] each time she cheated on him," Dell Curry has stated in the court documents. Reportedly, Sonya is currently living together with Johnson in Tennessee — the reason why Dell Curry is unwilling to pay her alimony. However, she has counter-accused the ex-Charlotte Hornets player of barring her from the Curry family home in North Carolina. She added that she was compelled to move in with Johnson since she was not permitted in her home after Dell and her legal separation in March 2020.
Despite Sonya's allegations of frequent cheating, Dell Curry has consistently maintained his reputation as a family man. On the other hand, Sonya herself became embroiled in a controversy in 2016, when a video of her "booty bumping" a man at a game went viral on social media. The viral video clip also showed a "stone-faced" Dell Curry sitting two seats away. The internet went bonkers speculating an affair between Sonya and the mystery man, but the rumor mills were soon put to rest by daughter Sydel Curry. The celebratory gesture, which might have looked salacious on camera, actually involved Jason Richards, a close friend of Steph Curry. Her impromptu celebration was found to be harmless as Dell Curry himself was smiling nearby.
Amid the scandal, Dell and Sonya's children Stephen, Seth and Sydel Curry and their families have maintained their silence.
