Stephen Curry’s father Dell was forced to take bold steps to uncover his wife Sonya’s alleged affair with the former NFL player

Steph Curry is the man of the moment in the basketball world. He just led the Golden State Warriors to their fourth title in eight years. In the process, Steph also won his first NBA Finals MVP trophy. It was Steph’s first NBA Finals trophy on his sixth visit to the NBA Finals. It felt like a crowning achievement in Steph’s career, as it was the only remaining trophy from her cabinet.

Achieving that title with the Golden State Warriors certified Steph’s legacy for years to come. Now he can claim a place among the greatest players of all time who played basketball. While on the court things have never been great for Steph, off the court, especially in his personal life, all is not well. Her father Wardell Curry and her mother Sonya Curry recently divorced.

Wardell and Sonya were married for over thirty years before calling it quits in 2021. This recent post shed some light on what happened between the two and what could have gone wrong.

Towards the end of their marriage, Dell accused Sonya of cheating on him with Steven Johnson, a former NFL player. Dell apparently felt Sonya was up to something and was forced to take a bold step. He allegedly hired someone to investigate because she denied it. According to reports, it appears that Steven Johnson was a “friend” of the family prior to this episode.
