Candace Parker announced that she got married to Russian basketball player Anna Petrakova two years ago and that they are expecting their first child together but hey, Twitter folks think she was cheating with Anna while still married to the former basketball player Shelden Williams.
Candace Parker and Shelden Williams got married in 2008 and called it quits in 2016 and they share a 12-year-old daughter Lailaa Nicole Williams.
Now, old tweets of Anna gushing over Candace Parker have surfaced on Twitter and now people think they were a ‘thing’ even before Candace and Shelden tied the knot.
Many of Candace’s fans were surprised to hear that she’s gay. And some weren’t even aware that she had split from her ex-husband Shelden Williams, who played college basketball at Duke University and also played in the NBA.
Candace married Sheldon in 2008 and the couple has a daughter named Lailaa Nicole Williams, born on May 13, 2009. In 2013, the couple seemed to be happily in love and purchased a 7,000-square-foot home in Encino, Los Angeles, for $3.56 million.
But in November 2016, the couple split up after eight years of marriage when Sheldon filed for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences.”
During each WNBA off-season from 2010 to 2015, Candace played for UMMC Ekaterinburg of the Russian League, winning five consecutive championships with the team.
It was during the off-season time in Russia, that Candace met a woman . .. . whom she would later marry, Anna Petrakova.
Black Twitter is wondering if Anna and Candace were messing around during her first marriage – and whether that messing around may have ended her marriage to Sheldon.
Shelden Williams has never publicly stated what ended their marriage, but it was always interesting to a lot of people when he asked for spousal support Parker didn’t fight him on it. The timeline of Parker being in Russia and playing with Petrakova while being married lines up. Maybe Williams found out about what was going on and that is what made him pull the trigger on the divorce?
We may never know.
