Dirk Nowitzki Was Married in Late July

Dallas Mavericks star Dirk Nowitzki was officially married last month. On July 20, the 34 year-old forward tied the knot with Jessica Olsson, a 31-year-old Kenyan-born art gallery director. The Dallas Morning News has the details: Smith confirms today that he married the couple at Nowitzki’s Preston Hollow home July 20 at an intimate ceremony with only a handful of close friends. ‘And it was a pretty special deal,’ says Smith. When asked how he got the gig, he says, ‘I have some friends who are friends with the organization, and Dirk contacted them and said, ‘Do you think Judge Smith will do it?’ And he asked me to do it.’ Smith also confirms that at this very moment, or close to, Nowitzki and Olsson are somewhere in the Caribbean getting married at a ceremony being attended by close family. And they needed a valid marriage license for that ceremony, which is where Smith came in.”

    @Patrick He means Black dudes get criticized for getting money and marrying a White chic, so does Dirk get extra credit for being White and marrying a Black chic.

    What’s wrong with interracial marriage? Congratulations to Dirk and his new wife.

    SLAM I salute you for not referencing mediatakeout when they reported this weeks ago. They have zero credibility.

    interracial couples are very common in germany. you wouldnt even call it interrecial coz everybody would be afraid to be called a racist. so nothing wrong with that. i dont even remember the last time i had a white girl lol

    @ Boss That was a few years ago. She was a scam artist. Think the FBI had warrants out on her for credit card theft/scams or something and when they busted her, she claimed that she was preggers with Dirk’s baby. Remember Dirk’s German coach and the Mavs organization had warned him about her but he ignored them.

    Not the same chic. This one is classy and accomplished.

    She was preggers wit his baby. She had his child man. But she’s in prison now I believe.
    Dirk appreciates the sisters and good for him.

    was Nash there? lol

  • AiRsMiTh

    I don’t really like saying interracial either, especially since I’m the product of one, but anyways, just seems like some do fixate on that. I could care less, so long as everyone is happy.

  • riggs
