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.

    Damn...Give this bullshyt a rest...they want people to stop saying how they feel about her comment...but keep responding and adding fuel to the fire.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    He should support her ... that's her husband ... moving on

  • Trey

    shes a clown...

  • tintin

    "Ayesha suggested the spark was gone from her marriage"

    No she did not

  • Topic Influencer

    Enough already with these beige folks and their marriage. And I want them to STFU about it too.

    Happy Friday and Happy pre-Mother's Day. Jesus

  • KcoolMuziq

    It's NO sexual chemistry or fire in ANY of their pictures together. They look more like brother & sister.

  • Ms..N

    I'm sorry but a wealthy woman whining on the Internet about being lonely instead of talking to her wealthy husband!! Cry me a f--ckin river!!

  • TheFlow

    sigh...cmon steph

  • SandraRose

    I said she "suggested." It's obvious the spark is gone or she wouldn't be begging for male attention. At least she's honest.

  • Renee26

    He's probably reminding her that he thinks she's sexy and beautiful more behind closed doors now

  • Seldomseen

    I like her jacket

  • Karen Brady


  • JV

    He'll have more time pay more attention to her when Dame knocks them out of the WCF with Durant out. I would lose my mind with joy.

  • TriniHarlem

    A husband supporting his wife is not news but OK

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Is it true that she did an interview and said that she hadn't been sexually satisfied in years?

  • Kimberly King

    I'm sick of her and her ugly moonpie face.

    Steph, pay my students loans, pay off by car note, buy me a corvette, and buy me a nice home in Sugarland, TX. Thanks ! ?

  • Let them eat cake

    i don't she should have said what she said publicly but he knows how she is and they've been together forever so whatever. This is clearly a God ordained couple and marriage so there is just some things people of the world with carnal minds just won't understand about them two and marriage period. Hard to explain.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Exactly ... supposed to do that

  • Elevated Soul

    I feel she is very pathetic. Clearly her husband is not paying her the attention she feels she need. She is looking for sympathy and attention.

  • Ni Ni

    Steph, whose wife knows the passwords to his social media accounts,
    Passwords only to the social media accounts that she knows about. Oh, the naivety.?

  • IAmLawlessBrooks

    She's getting horn!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She over ripe for cheating or have already cheated and breaking the ICE before it comes out

  • MJF

    This is clown shit. Smh.

  • SpillyNillie

    Oooouuu NEXT! PLEASE!

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Just like Russ & Ciara....Steph & Aisha are a lovely couple. SCANDAL FREE! Some could only wish but never achieve what they have.. they are J.O.E !

  • Rhyme and Reason

    After watching them (The Curry Women) on RTT, the Matriarch, Steph’s mom is awesome, and after this reveal, they (husband and family) will help Ayesha through her dark patch, humanness!

  • 11pink123

    That’s good. She better count that as a blessing and not try that again.

  • wonderwoman

    The is clearly the price of marrying so young. She wasn’t quiet ready. She dated Steph, and he probably was the only man she has been with. She missed out of the single life in her 20’s, so now she wants to be noticed by other men.(IMO)

  • Miss Thang

    I honestly can’t believe she said that out loud and in public. That’s something you only share with a counselor and deal with in private. Have some dignity. Geez.

  • Shamwow

    I have an uncle and his wife is 6 years older than me. I thought this about them and couldn’t even imagine them kissing . But lord when she mentioned prior abortions, having sex as much as she can and no matter what, earlier than 6 weeks after a baby and even during her red light special. I was like damn I don’t put nothing past a gentle looking couple.

  • Yoni7

    How old is your uncle?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    What else was he gonna do? He had no other choice but to publicly address it and show a united front.

  • Rahab

    The devil is a liar and will have her looking like a fool for messing up her goodt life. She needs to know they are in his DMs to replace her. Other men have nothing to offer her and need to remain silent.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What is JOE?

    And, I don't know anything about their personal lives. Any of them could be completely miserable.

  • KcoolMuziq

    Good point! I guess looks can be deceiving. Because couples that have big chemistry in pictures like Iman Shumpert and Teyana Taylor didn't last.
    But any women. Particularly a black woman that's getting her backed knocked out on the regular would not make a comment about needing attention from other men.

  • Yup, I said it

    She is very attention starved. Why is she doing interviews? What other professional athletes wife without her own career is doing the interview circuit. She wants to have a cooking show, write cookbooks, do,makeup commercials she needs attention badly.She will never outshine Steph curry. Just like Shawnee and Cookie didn't outshine Shaq and Magic. She needs to chill out and let Steph have his moment.

  • NewNew

    Lord, I haven't found one gossip post to care about today. Not Sandra's fault, it's just boring out there, I guess.

  • Vegas1989

    My favorite GIF!!!!….lol

  • Topic Influencer

    It sure aint. Not to mention there are other things Imma need Steph to support public like and this aint it.

  • KLove

    If she wants attention...just call Shaunie and sign up for, as Sandra likes to call it "BBQ wives" LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  • Topic Influencer

    Things I want Steph to support public like:
    Kevin Durant's absence tonight

    Things I want Steph to support public like:
    Kevin Durant's absence for the next 2-3 games if they do make it

  • Topic Influencer

    Things I want Steph to support public like:
    Klay Thompson. Bc again....KD aint gonna be there.

  • Topic Influencer

    Things I want Steph to support public like:
    Coach Kerr bc he tends to lose his shit during times like these.

  • AllIN19

    ?? The title Jesus...

  • Guest©

    Ppl ways say they look like brother and sister yet they have very different features. Shrugs

  • KLove

    They married too fairly certain Steph is the only man she has experienced sexually.....i wonder if shes the only one he has been with sexually

    That said, everyone likes to be desired by more than one person

    True story...when I fist met my ex wife, I didnt really shower her with that much attention, because I just knew I was THAT dude...until Valentines Day came around, and I hadnt made any she made sure to mention that some other cornball took her to Justins blah fuckin blah......I was all the way in my feelings LOL....she said she just went to let me know that other dudes also find her desirable

  • Logan Roberts

    Sounds like Ayesha already tried to discuss this with Steph and that didn't work. So embarrass him in public I guess.

  • Chocolate

    Right, she’s a clown. As are the droves of men who now think every woman is thirsty like this.
    This isn’t normal, it’s just a norm amongst women are naked on social media, showing off fellatio skills, kissing other women and any other outrageously ridiculous act of a child woman who has a bottomless pit of a craving for attention.
    She just aligned herself with all those ducks.
    Any mentally healthy, reasonable woman is more than likely tired of all the attention with get..bc we aren’t looking for it.

  • Tell the truth

    I’ve always said they look like brother and sisters they look alike , same color , eye color , it’s just a no for me !

  • Yup, I said it

    Steph bettwe make sure he keeps Future Hendrix and his magic dong away from Ayesha. Future and Big Shawn be making these lonely attentions starved women loose all their mind, morals, and marriage. Just ask Scottie Pippen. Future is like a blow fly he can smell rotting meat 10 miles away.

  • jwoo250

    I married young too in my 20s. Still wasn't craving attention though.

  • Being bad is way more fun

    She better get her a pool boi landscaper gay but bisexual best friend or personal trainer like the rest of the other basketball wife's and keep her mouth shut !!!

  • angrysolo

    i was gonna just scrowl pass this and wipe the screw offa my face... but she went out with the corn ball while y’all dated or while married? cuzzz

  • A D N

    Her husband is very secure and understood what she meant. Conversation is over.

  • Yup, I said it

    No that's someone playing games if in being neglected at home I leave. Its over I don't waste my time with someone unfillfilling. I certainly don't involve other people in my relationship. That's how grown people think. They don't just cheat or play games like that.

  • Yup, I said it

    Her husband is very mature and will not embarrass her in public like she did him. In sure she got an earful at home though.


    She is such a beautiful woman... I Could see how she could be insecure also because she is not the typical woman that they show NBA Players with. She is so wholesome and decent.
    The media stereotypes NBA players as guys with no self control that chase whores and marry the most skanky women overlooking all the decent black women. They make Athletes look like they will knock down an Ayesha Curry cutie pie type to get to a Skank so its understandable.

  • KneeSee

    I thought all the baller wives say they like to be their husbands' peace. I wish Ayesha would've fallen in line because now is not the time for this. I need Steph's head to be in the game.

  • Michelle

    I like her...

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Lol stop it , she said some retarded sh!t . They’ve even pulled up old tweets where she complained about men hollering at her at the car wash , stating that she’s off the market and didn’t need attention from men.

    Shout out to steph , he a real one , he’s just coming to his woman’s defense seeing how bad she looks out here in these social media streets.

  • Cricket404

    If the men don't pause when I walk into the room I'm upset! I support her.

  • Parent

    He's a good man.

  • MJF

    People love to play games and call that love or lust. Miss me with the bull. I'm not into games unless I'm playing UNO.

  • Eileen

    With a dumb wife if she has the man she wants the other men are inconsequential.

  • Eileen

    She should not have voiced her despair and Jada's lifestyle and show is different from her value system so what gives?

  • Eileen

    That conversation should have been between the two of them and not the world

  • Eileen

    And she should have!!!

  • ?AndGodCreatedWoman?

    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."
    My eyes started glazing over while said she typed the post on her husband's account?

    Let me stop putting words in Auntie's fingertips ?

  • KLove was when we first met...we werent officially dating or anything like that point...i had just hit a few times but she was wanting more and i wasnt buying what she was selling lol

  • Bashi22

    He only did for PR his wife is too much of a feminist bash my comment I don’t care. If Stephen would have said “ he’s not getting any female attention the uproar from women across the world”. She just want to compete with her husband for attention in career and status. Ayesha wants the same attention as her super sport star husband. Who afforded her cooking show, cooking book, and cook wears in her name Ayesha Curry. He’s a great guy please stop ? asking for trouble at your door step. Future might come scoop you up.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Negro you part of the problem! Get off social media and go to a therapist or get some counseling. That message did not sound sincere sounds like something he threw together real quick because people were starting to wonder why he not saying anything. His statement should been directed to her saying I hear you, I love you, and I desire you, and want to support you in any way, and WE gonna get through this privately together something along those lines. Geeesh I see why she feels unloved and bored and unwanted. smdh He needs to talk to his dad or an older gentlemen so he can get some wise advice about how to be there for his wife.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    That would make sense because he or she said a bunch of nothing! I would think a husband would say more.

  • PrettyMeka08

    She seems to act out during the playoffs often.

  • LibgraScales

    Amen @A D N! The conversation is over. She can say whatever the f*ck she wants to say in public or behind closed doors. She's a grown woman, not a child. She was ASKED the question and she answered, and I understood perfectly what she meant as well. Kudos to her for having the courage to share her truth.

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    That last part!!!!!!!

  • Dontgetdraggedhoe??

    Period! You better say that sh...

  • TheOwley

    All the money in the world and she lacks true friends and misses a men's attention. It's like she is trying to relive her younger self as a single 21 year old with men chasing after her and vying for her attention. This is not uncommon when you marry so young.

    Look at Pippen's wife. She was 22 or so, married for 20 years, and now is going over board trying to recapture those years as a single woman living her life. Look at her now with cut up daisy dukes and her butt hanging out. I see this one going the same route, specially when he retires and is no longer the "it" guy.

  • Parent

    Some men love dumb women. She's blessed to have such a man.

  • Tee Tee


  • Parent

    Some people have to share everything. Down to what's going on in their underwear. I blame social media.

  • Parent

    You said it!

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    LOL at this meme tho. Good one.

  • Cie Be

    Dang, the woman was just expressing how she felt, she didn't say she wanted to go out and have an affair...Geeesh, and Steph was just being supportive. Damn....folks be really reaching, dipping, and assuming........Now - HE SAID WHAT HE SAID! PERIODT.

  • Anonymouse

    This has nothing to do with marrying young and everything to do with an immature mentality.

    Anytime a married woman craves attention from other men, it’s because that’s where her validation or sense of self worth comes from and that’s completely insane.

  • Anonymouse

    What else is he going to say?

    I feel sorry for their children because they are being raised by immature parents.

  • Anonymouse

    That’s because she suffers from a never ending need to be noticed.

  • Anonymouse


  • Anonymouse

    Thank you! It’s about about your maturity level!

  • tunjie

    With marriage, I imagine all women think this all the time, who doesn't like attention. It just sounds rather wack saying this in public. I mean, from dude's point, shes basically inviting all those dudes, millionaires, atheletes, etc around her husband to start flirting and stuff, looking at her, typical stuff. D Cousins just stand in her face all night giving a few pelvic thrusts on the sly.

  • TheOwley

    That's true considering middle aged men and women can be just as immature (middle age crisis) but younger people need to sow their wild oats before making a lifetime commitment to marriage.

  • Yup, I said it

    Exactly. Jada has that Hollyweird type marriage and probably gets her back blown out by any male or female she pleases. Jada is attention starved and jealous of Wills career too but she keeps her mouth closed regarding her marriage.

  • Shamwow


  • Maxx

    People are just unhappy in their own life, so they have to project that negativity on celebrities. Nothing at all wrong with what the woman said

  • Bree

    I would keep my mouth closed regarding my marriage too if it was over years ago. Jada took Will's manhood by doing her own thing and forcing him to go by her rules. Hollywood ruined Jada. She was great in the beginning but she opened herself up for Hollywood and all of their BS. They gave birth to some insanely beautiful children but that is all. Will deserves better. He caters to his wife but as you can see, the favor isn't returned, she withdrew a long time ago from their marriage and so did he.

  • Bree

    You started off good but the latter part of your comment blew it out of the park!! I shut down my social media outlets because I am so tired of these birds. They all look like they've been to the same damn surgeon and got their stomachs pumped and ass lifted.

  • Bree

    Amen. I was in a relationship with someone and he craved attention from the village, while neglected home. I left him and I left that home. Nobody has time to play games. If you want to be single like a dollar bill, be my guest. I'm not cheating on no one, I do make plans to exit stage left though

  • seun


  • seun


  • EyeEmJai

    Honey, maturity or immaturity does not have an age lol. I know just as many older people (over 40) who shouldn't make lifetime commitments as younger people (under 30).

  • mzwhang90210

    I ? this couple. I see no fault in what she said. I find her openness refreshing! ?

  • Chasity Vanhalen

    I thought I was the only one who called her moon pie face.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Me too! She kept it honest.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Your second sentence nailed it! I see so many married women doing any and everything to get attention from other men. They are out here straight up competing with single women like they dont even have a man at home. They wanted to be married so bad so they could flaunt that ring around and prove someone thought enough of them to turn them into a wife and now that's not even good enough. They need attention from their husbands, everyone else's husband and the single men too. Just attention wh0res to the 10 power.They have become the "Please Look At Me" group. Smh.

  • missmiami305

    Me too! I love me some Steph Curry.

  • A D N

    Or maybe he understood her point.

  • Zeta Aggie

    So tired of all the fake outrage. It happens to everyone. I am head over heels in love with mu forever but erry once in a while it’s a little confidence thing to catch a man’s eye.
    My love sees me as beautiful and yes i love to see that look in his eyes but an admiring glance never hurt anyone. Especially for us moms. Has nothing to do with being lonely or desperate or any other such nonsense.

  • Yoni7


  • onelove

    she not going to be with him prenup!

  • sjames

    she 28...

  • B.Loveitt

    Not to mention she gets attention. She wasn't named most beautiful but a couple of mags and top blogs have named her one the most attractive ppl married to a professional athlete.

  • B.Loveitt

    She's got plenty of famous friends. Say that shyt to them on a girls trip don't make your hubby look bad if he's still hood to you. She has to uphold him too and she didn't. Her comment publicly is shady towards him...but look what he did for her after the aftermath but she failed him with that stupid comment.

  • B.Loveitt

    Men have said things in her comments so she's either lying or really want ninjas in her DM's wanting to hit...that's why she seems DESPERATE ppl who follow her have seen dudes come at her in her comments. Girl go sit yo ass down! It does sound like you putting a bat signal out there to cheat. Women are already all over your man. With comment they're coming that much harder to break him
    Sometimes you need to watch what you say publicly. So yeah what she said wasn't cool...she just made it worst.

  • Y’all Jealous Cuz I’m Prudy

    Which makes it even worse. She's older but not old so why is the need for even more attention so high.

  • B.Loveitt

    She should have lived a little but she didn't. She got married and started spitting out babies. I look at 1 of my younger cousins. Soon as she got married she started spitting out babies not married 4 years there already separated and she's got 2 kids.

  • B.Loveitt

    My little sister got married at 26 it still took her and my brother-in-law 8 years to have their 1st kid and they'd been together since she was 19. You can get married and still live a little with your spouse before mother/fatherhood and all that shyt that makes marriage thicker. Only the strong will survive.

  • B.Loveitt


  • SandraRose

    This is true. Women have until age 35 to birth a child, but a man can father children well into his 60s. T.I.'s dad was in his 60s when he was conceived.

  • B.Loveitt

    They rush far too a little.

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    And beautiful!

    You read waaaaay too much into her comment! Only mature folk got what she was saying!
