The site that initially reported the rumors, The Dirty.com, later took down the post.
By that point, however, the rumors were already circulating throughout the Internet.
The story goes that Toni Braxton went to an Atlanta hotel to pick up her date for the evening, Jason Kidd, but winded up leaving with Jackson instead.
Not an affair, mind you, but if the allegations were true, you could certainly accuse Jackson of playing the passing lanes and coming up with the steal. This time last year, after the Cavs folded against the Celtics and Le Bron James seemingly disappeared, rumors started floating around suggesting Le Bron was distracted because teammate Delonte West was allegedly sleeping with his mother, Gloria James.
At which point Vanessa told him she was a married woman and he was a married man who was old enough to be her father.
Add Silvia Lopez Castro to the list of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends.
Both Roaf and Horn denied the rumors, and Horn told ESPN, "We make mistakes sometimes, but that is one mistake Joe Horn did not make.
In 2000, speculation ran rampant that Joe Horn had not only slept with Willie Roaf's wife, but had impregnated her and was the father of Roaf's six-week-old daughter.But the abridged version goes something like this: At a 2004 Lakers game, Karl Malone hit on Vanessa Bryant on numerous occasions. Though Harkes has denied the rumors, Wynalda often maintained they were true, divorcing Amy in 2003. A day after finding out he had been traded on March 30, 1978, his wife Denise told him she no longer loved him, and by June, Eckersley would find out she had been having an affair with his best friend, Cleveland outfielder Rick Manning.I particularly like the following exchange as reported by ESPN:"From there Malone asked Vanessa if she could keep a secret, and that he would like to tell her something. Manning had suffered a vertebrae injury that season, and began sleeping with Eckersley's wife in Cleveland while the rest of the team, including Eckersley, was on the road. He’s supposedly been dating Silvia Lopez Castro, a Dream Cheers cheerleader, for a while now.Dream Cheers is a traveling dance group that performs halftime shows for sports teams like FC Barcelona.Jason Kidd and Jimmy Jackson notoriously feuded during their time together in the mid-1990s.But one story that made the rounds—which both men adamantly denied—involved a dating switchover one evening.Shouldn’t she be dating some soccer player or someone whose looks haven’t been compared to more animals than anyone in the history of professional sports?None the less, my opinion doesn’t matter and she’s settled with the llama.Pau Gasol and cheerleader Silvia Lopez Castro are dating.This has to cement Gasol as a Hall of Famer, right?
