It was hard to miss the lewd gesture Roni Rose made to Stephen Curry at the NBA Playoffs, leading fans to believe the reigning MVP had a side chick. Now the infamous model tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY her side of the story!
Model Roni Rose, 27, has caused quite a stir after taking what appeared to be an overtly sexual sip of her beverage while watching basketball player Stephen Curry, 28, at the NBA Playoffs on June 5. After the internet went into a frenzy as to whether or not the dark-haired vixen was the Golden State Warriors star’s mistress, Roni spoke with HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY to clear up a thing or two about the night in question.
“I was not giving him a seductive look at all. I literally stood up, had a sip of my cocktail. My eyes were looking at the bench and he was walking past but we never made eye contact,” Roni tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “As far as my seductive look, I actually just look that way [laughing]. In that shot everyone’s talking about, I was actually holding my boyfriend’s hand. He was to my left.” She made sure to note that she has ZERO connection to the basketball star, “I’ve never met him before in my life. I’m just a huge fan.”
We’re sure that somewhat comes as a relief to Roni’s boyfriend and to Stephen’s wife Ayesha Curry, 27, who is also the mother to his adorable young children Ryan and Riley. The questionably suggestive image that rapidly circulated social media sites showed Roni in a blue crop-top and form-fitting canary yellow skirt. She was clearly representing her team pride for Golden State during game 2 of the 2016 NBA Finals against the Oakland Cavaliers. Of course after seeing her presence at the game going viral, Roni took to Instagram to mock all of the negative attention and haters saying that she was trying to step in on Ayesha’s husband of five years. Roni used a screenshot along with the explanation: “Sooo I was just drinking my drink and this happened. I’m just giving the boys a little motivation I guess. Go warriors.”
Roni even addressed that Stephen is so not her cup of tea in the looks department. “I personally think he resembles my four younger brothers. Plus, he doesn’t have any tattoos and he has a baby face. So no!” she tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Welp, it appears to be mutual between the two parties involved, considering the 6-foot-3 point guard only has eyes for his beautiful, classy wife. A source close to the MVP also told us that, “Steph doesn’t like this Ronigate scandal he’s found himself in. He appreciates her love as a fan but at the same time, he doesn’t like all the drama that’s been going on. Steph’s a married man and Ayesha’s his everything.” Awe!
