Steph Curry showed support for his wife Ayesha Curry who sparked controversy when she said she felt insecure and neglected because other men don’t notice her.
Ayesha and Steph met when they were teenagers in Charlotte. They tied the knot in 2011.
But after 8 years of marriage, Ayesha suggested the spark was gone from her marriage and she is feeling lonely and ignored.
She said she wished other men would notice her the way loose women fling themselves at her NBA superstar husband.
Ayesha made the statements during the season premiere of Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk Facebook web series.
The mother-of-three stunned RTT viewers when she revealed she felt neglected because men don’t pay attention to her.
“Something that really bothers me and has honestly, given me a little bit of an insecurity is like ‘Yeah, there are all these women throwing themselves [at Steph] but me, the past 10 years, I don’t have any of that. It sounds weird but I have zero male attention.”
In an Instagram Story on Friday, Steph, 31, gave his wife emotional support, despite the humiliating hit to his ego.
“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,” he said.
Steph, whose wife knows the passwords to his social media accounts, added that the public’s response was “Way more positive than negative with all of this. Keep being you. I love you.”
Ayesha and Steph are parents to daughters Riley and Ryan and a son, Canon.
