MTO News reported yesterday that there are growing rumors that NBA coach Doc Rivers is planning on divorcing his wife of 34 years, Kristen Rivers. The couple married in 1986, and have been together through Doc’s entire NBA career. Kristen is also the mother to Doc’s four kids – including NBA player Austin Rivers.
And now MTO News has exclusive pics of Doc’s new girl – a 25 year old Black girl.
As we reported yesterday, we’re put the word “Black” in quotations, because Doc’s new love interest is very light skinned – and possibly mixed race.
In the pics obtained exclusively by MTO NEWS, Doc appears to be on a romantic date with the much younger ‘Black’ woman.
Luckily for us, the paparazzi was there to snap pics of the alleged new couple at a dinner date at San Vicente Bungalow in West Hollywood.
Here are the pics of the two snuggling out in public:
Rivers is the nephew of former NBA player Jim Brewer. He lived in Orlando, Florida, with his ex-wife Kristen; they have four children. His oldest son Jeremiah played basketball at Georgetown University and Indiana University and has played in the NBA D-League for the Maine Red Claws. His daughter Callie played volleyball for the University of Florida and is married to NBA player Seth Curry, while his younger son Austin currently plays for the Houston Rockets. His youngest son, Spencer, is a guard who played for Winter Park High School and for UC Irvine.
Rivers is a cousin of former NBA guard Byron Irvin and former MLB outfielder Ken Singleton.
