After severe backlash, Curry took to social media Thursday to say he’s “proud” of his wife of nearly eight years for opening up about how she feels seeing women throw themselves at the NBA player. Ayesha also spoke up about feeling insecure that she has zero male attention although her husband is often swarmed by groupies.
“Proud of you for being authentic and putting yourself out there—not being afraid of the potential bullsh-t and nonsense that could and did come at you,” Curry wrote on Instagram Stories.
Curry’s message of support comes after the mother of his three children revealed during the season premiere of Red Table Talk that she’s a bit bothered by the attention her husband gets in comparison to her, and sometimes internalizes those feelings.
“There are all these women throwing themselves [at Steph], but me, like the past 10 years, like, I don’t have any of that,” she said. “Like I have zero, this sounds weird, but like, male attention.”
Ayesha added that she sometimes thinks “something wrong with me,” adding, “I don’t want it, but like, it’d be nice to know that…someone’s looking.”
She later faced tons of backlash on social media for her comments, but many women came forward to commend Ayesha for her honesty.
Steph continued that “way more positive than negative” came out of the situation, adding, “Keep being you. I love you.”
