Ayesha Curry took to Instagram to share an image from GQ’s February cover story and photoshoot, which featured her husband. While the post itself was positive – and Ayesha even shared an effusive caption about her husband – one of the commenters referenced the report and claimed both had been unfaithful.
Ayesha wouldn’t allow it.
“Don’t believe everything you read,” she replied. “Do you know how ridiculous that is? Don’t respect my marriage like that. Please and thank you.”
Some of those spreading the rumor had referenced Ayesha Curry’s 2019 appearance on the show Red Table Talk on Facebook Watch, in which she spoke of getting a lack of “male attention,” though she apparently doesn’t this apparition referred to her husband. This comment had also drawn criticism, leading Ayesha Curry to speak out against those who intentionally misinterpreted her comments.
“That’s exactly what I mean,” she commented in a Mother’s Day Instagram post. “Speaking without examining the true context for yourself. Don’t read headlines. Watch the broadcast. Everybody’s freaking out and my husband and I are sober as a gopher here because I know what I said. . . . A willingness to speak bluntly about one’s thoughts is security. Not the other way around.”
Despite the unfounded claims of a troubled marriage, there have been no public signs of dissatisfaction from either Ayesha or Steph Curry. The couple spoke to People magazine about their relationship last year, discussing how they met as teenagers in a youth group in Charlotte, North Carolina, and reconnected years later when they first started dating.
Though they became one of the NBA’s most visible couples — with Ayesha and her kids appearing often on TV and the couple working on some high-profile projects off the court — Steph said he doesn’t feel comfortable with the idea of people using her put on a pedestal.
