Dirk nowitzki dating black woman
As we mentioned, Dirk Nowitzki’s wife Jessica Olsson has some culture going on.
Her mother is Kenyan and her father is from Sweden.
When the couple married in 2012, rumors persisted that the couple had two separate ceremonies. Despite his prowess on the court, until Dirk Nowitzki’s wife entered the picture, Dirk hadn’t always had the same success off it.
The first, a traditional African ceremony for Jessica’s mother’s family and another in Germany. From one to two is a huge step that you don’t actually realize. Remember his crazy, convict ex girlfriend/fiancee who was rumored pregnant with Dirk’s spawn, but then turned out she was lying? Fast forward one year, and things were looking much, much brighter for our tall German friend who saved the world by slaying Le Bron.
When, a year later, they first appeared in public together, it created a lot of stirs among the fans and peers, because Jessica was black and it wasn't conventional for a white sports personality to have a black partner.
Most of the voices, however, were supporting, often times hailing them for showing a positive image of the mixed-race couple in the sports sector.
But, I’ve never heard it to my face.“Growing up in Germany, and basketball,” Nowitzki said. I played with the national team where half of my teammates were from Yugoslavia. You try to make it work and chemistry has got to be there.
The couple made their first public appearance together in 2011, when they showed up at the ESPYs, walking the red carpet hand in hand.
