Ex-NFL star, who compelled Stephen Curry’s mom to be sacked over infidelity prices, had an undisclosed childhood relationship with father Dell

Sonya and Dell Curry, the parents of NBA superstar Stephen Curry, made global headlines for all the wrong reasons. The two filed for divorce after both sides alleged infidelity.

While Dell accused Sonya of cheating with a former NFL star, the other side claimed Dell had indulged in infidelity throughout his career. Dell reportedly “accuses Sonya of years of having an extramarital affair with Steven Johnson, who was a Virginia Tech athlete at the same time as the separating couple in the mid-’80s.”

However, Sonya Curry claimed that she lived a long time ago because Dell doesn’t allow her to live at home. Although she also revealed that she was in a dating relationship, Sonya clarified that this was after the two legally separated.
