Steph Curry’s parents Sonya and Dell Curry have both accused the other of cheating, in their divorce proceedings.

Sonya Curry, 55, filed paperwork June 14 in North Carolina for the split from Dell, 58, TMZ reported Tuesday, claiming that his ‘marital misconduct’ included multiple affairs that were known by family and friends.

Sonya said she didn’t publicly reveal her knowledge of Dell’s cheating ‘in one final act of trying to protect [him] and family from possible public exposure and scrutiny.’

The latest: Steph Curry’s parents Sonya and Dell Curry have both accused the other of cheating, in their divorce. The former couple were snapped in May of 2019 in Oakland 

Sonya – who says she and Dell separated in March of 2020 – said ‘she was left with no choice’ but to reveal his cheating after he accused her of being unfaithful.

Dell said in court docs Sonya had engaged in ‘acts of illicit sexual misconduct’ before they had separated, and subsequently lied about it.

Sonya is currently residing with another man, Dell said in legal docs reviewed by the outlet, and therefore should not be eligible to collect alimony.

Sonya said in court docs that she has been dating a man in the months after she and Dell separated, but denied living with him, saying she lives on her own, as Dell would not let her stay in the family home following their split.
