Steph Curry's mom Sonya files to divorce husband Dell as couple split with ‘great deal of sadness’ after 32 years
THE mom of NBA star Steph Curry has filed to divorce her husband after more than 32 years of marriage.
Sonya, 55, said the split with Dell, 58, comes with "great sadness" after she filed the paperwork in North Carolina in June.
They are the parents of Golden State Warriors basketballer Steph Curry, 33, and Seth, 31, who is currently playing for the NBA side Philadelphia 76ers.
Sonya gave birth to their daughter Sydel in 1994, according to TMZ.
She wed Dell in 1988 after meeting at university and they were married for 32 years.
In a joint statement, the couple told People: "After exploring a trial separation over the past year and much thoughtful consideration, we have decided to end our marriage.
"As this comes with a great deal of sadness, our focus and desire is for our family's continued happiness.
“We are so thankful for all the many blessings and successes! We stay committed to and supportive of our children and grandchildren and will remain on connected paths.
"We ask that our privacy be respected and prayer for our family as we move forward."
Dell played in the NBA between 1986 and 2002 for several teams including Utah Jazz, Cleveland Cavaliers, Milwaukee Bucks, and Toronto Raptors.
He was also a star guard on the Charlotte Hornets for 10 seasons.
Dell starred as a commentator on Hornets TV broadcasts from 2009.
Meanwhile, Sonya played volleyball while she attended high school and college in Virginia.
The supportive parents regularly attended Steph's and Seth's basketball matches.
Dell famously wore a Golden State jersey while Sonya sported a Portland Trail Blazers shirt as Steph and Seth faced off against each other in the 2019 NBA finals.
The couple currently shares four grandchildren.
