An explosive rumor is circulating among ESPN staff. Stephen A. Smith may be dating Jalen Rose’s estranged wife Molly Karim, MTO News has learned.
It was reported in the world yesterday that Jalen had filed for divorce from Molly after more than 2 years of marriage. According to Jalen’s divorce documents, he and Molly have been separated for the past year.
Molly has not yet responded to the divorce filing, so it’s not clear if she agrees with Jalen’s timeline for separation.
MTO News spoke to two ESPN employees who work near Stephen A and Molly and both said they suspected the two were dating.
An employee explained, “She is, of course, a non-black woman of Stephen A’s type, with an ‘exotic’ character. ‘ Molly is ethnically mixed, Italian and Albanian.
Another employee told MTO News, “They flirt a lot on camera. I thought it was all just a game. But now we know she’s been unmarried for a year. Yeah, it looks like something is happening.”
Here is a video of the two recently flirting on air. Stephen tells Molly “I need you”, and other flirtatious things. Molly later claimed in the same section that she and Stephen would go to the Met Gala next year “together.”
Based on Jalen’s divorce filing, Molly was unmarried for about 9 months when she recorded this episode:
True if they make a real cute couple. But We wonder how Stephen A’s ESPN colleague Jalen would feel if he saw his wife and Homi dating ????
