Rumor: Stephen, Seth Curry’s mom Sonya files for divorce from Dell
Sonya Curry and Dell Curry got married back in 1988, but it appears the marriage is coming to an end. According to TMZ Sports, Sonya filed divorce paperwork in June, and the divorce is still ongoing.
It’s currently unclear why the two are heading for a split.
Sonya and Dell Curry first met while they were student-athletes at Virginia Tech. Dell went on to the NBA in 1986 and played in the league until 2002. He made a name for himself as a sharpshooter with the Charlotte Hornets.
Sonya was a star volleyball player in college. She first noticed Dell during her official recruiting visit at Virginia Tech.
Sonya and Dell Curry had their first child, Stephen Curry, in 1988. Seth Curry came in 1990, and then their daughter Sydel was born in 1994.
The Currys have been seen together at many an NBA game cheering on their sons. When Steph’s Golden State Warriors took on Seth’s Portland Trail Blazers in the 2019 Western Conference Finals, Sonya and Dell repped both teams in a show of support for their kids. The Warriors wound up sweeping that series before losing to the Toronto Raptors in the NBA Finals.
It would truly be a bummer if Sonya and Dell Curry are getting divorced after building such a great family. If they do split, hopefully it will be an amicable one.
