Dell Curry accuses Sonya of cheating with former NFL-player
Papa Curry did not hold back from accusing his former wife, Sonya Curry of having an extramarital affair with former Patriots star, Steven Johnson. According to Dell, Sonya had lied to him about her relationship with Johnson. The legal documents state that Dell does not want Sonya to be eligible to collect alimony as she is currently staying with HJohnson in Tenesee.
Even though Sonya claimed that she has been seeing someone since the split she never said they were staying together. Dell would not let Sonya stay in the family house especially after finding out that she lied and cheated.
