Dirk Nowitzki’s Stalker and/or Girlfriend

by Marcel Mutoni

This season alone, there have been reports of two players getting harrassed by stalkers. Joining Derek Fisher and Luke Walton on the list is the Mavs’ Dirk Nowitzki. Well, sort of.

As if Dirk didn’t already have his hands full with the Nuggets, he had to worry about this crazed woman who may or may not be his girlfriend. Cristal Taylor was arrested at Dirk’s house yesterday morning, while Dirk flew back from Denver.

The Star-Telegram has the strange, confusing details:

Police arrested a woman with multiple felony warrants at the Preston Hollow home of Dallas Mavericks basketball star Dirk Nowitzki on Wednesday morning. Cristal Taylor, 37, was arrested at the Strait Lane home after police received information from a Dallas officer working with an FBI task force, authorities said.

Police said that Taylor may have been using as many as eight aliases, NBC Channel 5 reported. Police wouldn’t speculate on Taylor’s relationship with the NBA All-Star, NBC Channel 5 reported. Sarah Melton, a spokeswoman for the Mavericks, said Taylor was “just staying at his house,” NBC Channel 5 reported. Sources told nbcdfw.com that Taylor is Nowitzki’s girlfriend.

CBS 11 News reported that sources that said Nowitzki hired a the private investigator to check into her background, and the investigator found that she was using an alias.

Dirk will address this mess today after the Mavs’ practice, a conversation that is sure to be off the charts awkward.

  • BKS

  • http://slamonline.com/online/category/blogs/fear/ Fred34

    you think this is gonna be worse than his mvp acceptance speech after getting crushed by the warriors?

  • riggs

    kenyon martin is going to have a field day with this news.

  • http://lacuevacrosscountry.com Slick Nick Da Ruler

    At least he’s not with J Kidd’s girl

    never date a girl named after an alcoholic beverage. it will not end well.

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    many aliases huh? is Darksaber one of them? haha

  • J J Burks

    Dirk, my favorite player, can do better than this hag. :}
    Maybe she was looking for KM

  • seppo

    any pics of this chick? i´m sure dirk gets a lotta hot groupies (no homo).

  • German Reignman

    just imagine the trash talk in the next game … somebody will definitely yell “Crystal Taylor” everytime he shoots …

    @nate the great:
    he lives in “Straight Lane” so he probably is not gay …

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    good one His Ham. That got me smiling. Still….. Watch your back, homey.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    8 Aliases? Who did Dirk expect to be dating? Sidney Bristow? Damn.

  • http://www.jcherot.blogspot.com Tripset30

    @Fred34… her alias’ are the same as Nowitzki’s rebounding average for one thing… also, when’s the last time you scored 35 in a playoff game despite getting scratched and clawed everytime you touched the ball? What does he need to do to get people off his back, go for 40-20-10 and 15 blocks?

  • Marc

    Atleast it wasn’t Toni Braxton

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    Trip: it’s an uphill battle, believe me. Nice of ya to try and defend him though, but Dirk will never have a nice friendly fanbase on slamonline. Au contraire. But WE know, oh we know. Top 10 B-Ball star, worldwide.

  • Tyrone Shoelaces

    hahahah wow i hope this a legit stalker case, because i called this happening weeks ago. Me and my roommate were debating who’s next in line for a stalker, he settled on Bruce Bowen, and i said none other than Air Germany. BOO-YAH! hahaha

  • DF Dub

    She’s not a “stalker” you got it wrong. She allegedly is his fiance in fact, and supposedly pregnant! Get ya’ facts right.

  • sam

    haha wat the hell

  • Tavoris

    Note to Dirk: If you have to hire a PI to check out your girlfriend, then she shouldn’t be your girlfriend.

  • bendreizehn
  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Damn Dirk, she’s 37?

  • http://handogsapinoy.com/chismisan/ grant

    is she not really a stalker? i thought she is..

  • http://www.ballislife.com/ Moose

    It’s probably not a chick anyways, *she* has 8 aliases.

  • sam

    haha wt*

  • Yassi

    F*ing Hell!

  • Feng

    watch someone like eddie house would be next haha

  • Yassi

    Jeeeez, hes gonna turn into an NBAStar after all, I guess, god forbid, yikes, disgusting, I´m lost for (printable) words

  • Tyrone Shoelaces

    If this is dirk’s fiance, then he has got to step his game up, and i’m not talkin’ playoffs.

  • http://ittakesanationofmillionstoholdthissac.blogspot.com ciolkstar

    Whoa, chick is busted.

  • http://slamonline.com Walt Williams

    That beezy has been put through the ringer! Looks like she might have been a tweak at some point.Mugshots are the best

  • CD

    Dirk, if you met her in a bar, that was your problem. Best way to find a nice, normal girl is get your “normal” friends/co-workers to introduce you to their friends, relatives, etc. I agree with J.J. Burks, you can definitely do better that that skank! And to those who are questioning his manhood,obviously you are homophobic and secretly have a crush on him or you wouldn’t have made those comments! Regardless, Dirk, you’re still my “homeboy”! Now let’s win on Saturday, okay?

  • Teddy-the-Bear

    LMFAO @ BKS: Kenyon Martin, or Norman Bates? *(Insert “people’s eyebrow”).

  • http://www.triplejunearthed.com/dacre Dacre

    Somewhere, somehow Rex Chapman is involved….

  • http://slamnewsletter Ginger

    I just can not get over how unattractive this woman is!! As handsome, tall and rich Dirk is and SHE is his girl!!! I am hoping that is a bad picture of her and she at least looks a little better than that!! I hate to see him involved with a shady woman but if she were hot it would be understandable. What does he see in her!!! YUCK!!!!

  • T4inc

    Someone should give Dirk’s girl a face transplant. Can’t get any worse…

  • Kelli Lawer

    CBS 11 is reporting lawyers, police and Dirk’s PI went to his house to “arrest Taylor and serve an eviction.” Smell like an ex turn stalker.

  • polly

    more pics of her:
    (shes ugly and fat… and not in the pregnant way)


  • http://www.twitter.com/TheDiesel Anton

    That’s a man, baby!

  • http://www.hibachi20.blogspot.com Hursty

    Who the heck names their kid Cristal anyways? No wonder he thought she was suspect. Thats a p0rnstar name damnit!!

  • http://www.mynameinorange.blogspot.com Hisham

    haha you know it’s all in good fun, Dark. But I will watch my cyberback

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    You better. i’ma get the cyber Chris Rock to roast your cyberback. (but as i said Hish, it was a GREAT line). Just read the story from the Dallas point of view on Lang’s Links earlier. Kinda sad if he started doubting the woman enough to hire a PI after quite a long time together. Thank goodness he didn’t marry her as was seemingly planned. Keep your head in the game Dirk, good individual 2nd round so far my man, now give those numbskulls on your team the always effective Skip to my Lou Headslap. Ason Kidd, JETTerry and lord knows Erick could use it.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    One other thing. So it seems Dampier has an injured ankle too. Not that this excuses his lame ineffective play, but Erick can i ask you something? How the hell are you, a center gonna play the WHOLE Season with the Nike Shox Slam, never have any serious foot problems (that i know of) then decide the Playoffs is the time to switch to the FLIGHT CLUB? See any other guys your size doing that except Lebron (and he’s a freak anyway)? Here’s a short list of guys who wore the FC as it came out. TP, Iggy, tons of other wing players, you. who’s the odd one out here, pray tell? ARRRGGHHH!

  • tj

    i am sure that when the cops tried to arrest her one of them held her and said “why won’t this wig come off” thats a man baby yeah!!!

  • http://www.slamonline.com Blinguo

    So this and the “Korean Abdul Jabbar” story in the same season linked here, good thing there’s good playoff series after such a debated(if not that debatable in the end, the voters thought) MVP race season to all but completely ignore these crazy stories. Mugshot looks like the planet of the apes lady. Redirkulous. Also against Dirk is him giving props to the Denver big men guarding him and getting roasted by the TNT crew for doing so. That’s too humble in the NBA man and this story adds to something not right with Dirk, this season if not adding to the other rumors/bashing he’s gotten in his career. But the Steve Nash & Dirk “drunk athlete” bar photos were good, showing he’s not some weirdo super hippie bohemian, but actually human-if only in a frat boy drunkard way.

  • http://yahoo.com Victoria harper

    Stalker on the loose! That ain’t Dirk’s girl. She looks way too crazy to be with a phoenom like Dirk.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Blinguo

    And Lang’s linked to full details story(by a writer even quoting his friend, the laywer brother of Mark Cuban) noting Dirk keep private life separate and as private as he can. So got to respect that. And he tries hard probably to please everyone and or to answer all questions as such, hence the Denver players answer. But that trash can didn’t deserve kicking after the Golden State routing Dirk. That poor defenseless trash can, what would Hasselhoff think?!

  • George B

    no comment

  • ngoiekafita

    Lol @ phil & chiqo

  • Cizzo

    Dirk out there effin with some old ass hood rat hoes, I know Dallas has more to offer than that!J.Kidd or J. Terry need to put Dirk up on a few got hoochies hell yall in the NBA!!!!

  • http://effyou@heythere.com Allenp

    Dirk really needs to get his girlfriend game on track. She’s older than him and she’s not a dime.
    And on to that that she appears to be a career criminal, and well this is starting to look like a certain first round playoff series…
    Uber fail.

  • http://www.lkz.ch Darksaber

    always wondered what that meant in regards to women: a dime? Allenp, enlighten me?

  • dirkloveshotties

    Are you sure that’s not Reggie Miller?

  • TT


    A dime seems like it means a “10″ to me.

    If that is the case…she is not even a Lincoln.

    Gotta figure that one out a second.

  • SteffTX

    TT..A Lincoln! That’s hilarious. I have to use that one. The chick should of used some those bad checks to have some plastic surgery done. Poor Dirk. Must of been lonely to date someone that ugly. No offense to the ugly. They need love to, but not the criminals!

  • tony

    maybe shes tall

  • Dave

    She looked pretty attractive when glammed up. Have you seen some celebrity women with all the works.

  • Dave

    Meant to say celebrity women without all the works. Chicks like Kim Kardashian have tons of plastic surgery.
