Stephen Curry backs Ayesha after her comments about 'male attention' draw criticism
Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry defended his wife Ayesha late Thursday night after she drew criticism for her comments on some of the more difficult parts of being married to an NBA superstar.
During a Monday appearance on Jada Pinkett Smith's Facebook show, "Red Table Talk," Ayesha Curry discussed interactions with rabid fans and groupies, among other insecurities.
"I have zero — this sounds weird — but, like, male attention. So then I begin to internalize it and I'm like, 'Is something wrong with me?'" Curry said. "I don't want it, but it would be nice to know that someone's looking."
Curry's comments were not well-received by a number of fans, and the noise reached a level to where Stephen himself took to Instagram to defend his wife.
"Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there – not being afraid of the potential bull s#*# and nonsense that could and did come at you,"
Stephen wrote to Ayesha on his Instagram story Thursday night. "Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you."
