You’ve probably seen this photo at least once over the last week.

I know I have.

It’s been turned into memes and been the subject of ‘caption this’ competitions over the last week – and as suspected, there’s a story behind it.

The woman in the photo is Roni Rose, an Instagram model/stripper(?) who has been described as basketball star Stephen Curry’s biggest fan.

Worryingly, she’s also been pretty widely described as Curry’s “side chick”, a term that has been thrown around without anyone battling so much as an eyelid.


Because he’s an… athlete?!

She’s in the spotlight because she was caught in the crowd at a Golden State Warriors game seemingly making an obscene gesture towards Stephen Curry, who has been called ‘the greatest shooter in NBA history’.

After the social media flurry, Roni Rose decided to speak out via her Instagram account.

“Sooo I was just drinking my drink and this happened. I’m just giving the boys a little motivation I guess. Go warriors lol #goldenstatewarriors #ronirose #oakland #bringonthehaters #gottalovecali #wewon #blueandyellow”

Hmmm… doesn’t look like that to me, or many other people for that matter.

Because before she was able to explain herself, fans went wild on Twitter, insinuating that the former stripper was purposely motioning to Steph because they had a little relationship going on on the side.


What do YOU think?!
