Ayesha Curry is constantly proving that she’ll always be Stephen Curry’s ride-or-die chick. Most recently, she defended her husband against hecklers who want the NBA player to feel every bit of pain after his loss in this year’s championship. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop!
Ayesha Curry, 27, backed up her husband Stephen Curry, 28, against social media trolls who have been harassing the point-guard for the Golden State Warriors’ loss against the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2016 NBA Championship. Considering the game made history due to the Cavs coming back from a 3-1 deficit, fans are going in like never before. Luckily, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that his lady is there to support him to the max!
“Steph and Ayesha have been inseparable since the loss and they are really leaning on each other for mental and emotional support. They’ve both been clobbered in the press and on social media and don’t really know how to deal with being on the losing end and the butt of all the jokes,” a source tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “This is new for them. Steph’s head is hanging so low it’s literally buried in Ayesha’s chest. He’s in a lot of disbelief, and so is she, but together, they’re being each other’s rocks. Albeit the rock isn’t as solid after being cracked by the Cavs, in time, it will be healed.”
Stephen’s brutal loss in Oakland during game 7 has led fans to direct all their positive attention to Lebron James, 31. Steph has become the face of several mocking memes and social media jokes, even though he scored 17 points and shot 4-14 from the 3 point spot. Meanwhile, LeBron pulled big numbers with a triple-double in addition to leading his team with 27 points. It was only one game prior that Stephen got ejected for throwing his mouth guard after six personal fouls. Ayesha came to his rescue then, too, with a tweet, which was later deleted: “I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money. Or ratings in not sure which.”
“It’s not a good feeling, like I said,” Stephen said after the Championship game to ESPN. “At the end of the day, we want to keep this memory so that it will fuel us as we stay together as a team. This ain’t the last time [we’re] going to this stage.”
