Curry Responds to Internet Troll
Ayesha Curry took to Instagram to share an image from GQ’s February cover story and photo shoot, which featured her husband. While the post itself was positive — and Ayesha even shared a gushing caption about her husband — one of the commenters made reference to the report claiming that both had been unfaithful.
Ayesha didn’t let it slide.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” she responded. “Do you know how ridiculous that is? Don’t disrespect my marriage like that. Please and thank you.”
Some of those spreading the rumor had made reference to Ayesha Curry’s 2019 appearance on the “Red Table Talk” show on Facebook Watch in which she spoke about getting a lack of “male attention,” though she did not appear to be referencing her husband in that appearance. This comment had also drawn criticism, leading Ayesha Curry to speak out against those who were purposely misconstruing her comments.
“This is exactly what I mean,” she commented in an Instagram post for Mother’s Day. “Speaking without examining the true context for yourself. Don’t read headlines. Watch the show. Everyone’s going crazy and my husband and I are over here sober as a gopher because I know what I said. … Willingness to speak on your thoughts unashamedly is being secure. Not the other way around.”
No Signs of Trouble for Currys
Despite the unfounded claim of a troubled marriage, there have been no public signs of discontent from either Ayesha or Steph Curry. The pair opened up about their relationship to People magazine last year, discussing how they met as teenagers at a youth group in Charlotte, North Carolina, and connected again years later, when they began dating.
Though they became one of the NBA’s most visible couples — with Ayesha and their children often appearing on television and the couple working on some high-profile projects off the court — Steph said that he’s uneasy about the idea of people putting them on a pedestal.
“I don’t like people looking at someone else’s image,” he said. “We want to represent the right things because that’s who we are, but we don’t like when people say ‘#RelationshipGoals’ and stuff. I want people to understand they have to live their own lives the way they want to and not just do what we do.”
Ayesha Curry added she only cares about serving as a role model for those closest to her.
“What I want to represent for my daughters is that you can always stay true to yourself and still be successful,” she said. “You can have your cake and eat it too and follow your passions, have a family and be happy.”
