The Tea On Basketball Wife Imani: Why She Shouldn't Judge

It was a Saturday in August of 2005. Family, friends and team mates of San Antonio Spurs guard, Stephen Jackson and his fiancé Imani Showalter were all in Houston to witness the wedding of the happy couple. Unfortunately, that wedding didn't happen. Word is just hours before the nuptials were to take place, as Imani was getting dressed, Jackson hit her with a 300 page (some sources say it was only 50 pages) prenup and when she refused to sign it, the wedding was cancelled. Rumor has it that Imani had been putting off signing the pre-nup for a while and of course the day everything is supposed to go down, all hell breaks lose when the paperwork is still not signed. So much for being a basketball wife.

 

Granted, it was kind of harsh he brings a pre-nup to you the day of your wedding but you love him right? You weren't just marrying him for the money were you, because that would make you a gold digger and that would make all the judgmental remarks to Draya completely null and void. 

 

Now if that wasn't enough tea, rumor has it that the pre-nup wasn't the only reason Stephen called the wedding off. Word is, Imani lied about her age AND the number of children she had. Imani and Stephen have a daughter together named Taylor. Stephan was only aware of one other child that Imani had. Well apparently, Imani had yet another child who was actually living with the father's family. Yes, allegedly Imani ditched her child to go catch her a baller. Not so different from Draya now are we?

 

Now let's talk about the age thing. Supposedly Imani told Stephen she was 27 when she was really closer to 34. Yikes! Stephen's mom wasn't much of a fan of hers. She said she would die if her son married Imani. Apparently she had a panic attack at the wedding and acting a crazed fool. Welp, lucky for her the wedding never went on. Mama knows best I suppose. 

 

Everybody got a little dirt but Imani was throwing a ridiculous amount of shade last night. Imani spent a lot of time on the whole "stripping" thing. We'll call Imani the Judgmental Wife. Unfortunately, she probably shouldn't be pointing too many fingers when her hands aren't clean. You're judging Draya because she stripped? Well ma'am, maybe you should have stripped and kept your hands out of Stephen's pockets. Maybe you would be married right now. Maybe.

Draya called her out on something first.  She recognized her from somewhere and they bleeped it out. Whatever she said lit a fire under Imani and she was out for blood after that.

I agree with Lurker...their situations are definitely not the same (Imani's and Draya's).  Draya was neglectful. Imani is shady as hell for thinking she can keep up that big of a lie but she's still not scum.

See... with a past like that she should definitely be more careful of the way she judges others. Especially on TV. Naturally.people are going to dig into your past. And the nastier your personality the more people are going to want to uncover your dirt. To call Draya worthless was asking for it.

I agree with lurker and smitty, too.  Leaving your child with your father isn't the same as leaving your apartment door unlocked with a whole bunch of banquet TV dinners.  The Berks county PA child services complaints are public record.  Furthermore, Draya called Imani out first and the kid gloves came off.

So it's ok to leave your child with the father nowadays? Oh ok
Comment by mese on September 6, 2011 at 2:43pm
The point is she left her child with his fathers side to go chase after a damn baller. The only thing she did nt do was leave him by his self, her and draya both did the same thing left there children to go be with a baller. And I don't wanna defend drays but the only thing draya say was isn't your boyfriend stephan jackson, uh she didn't say anything that we didn't already know. Imani knew who that girl was. But too call somebody worthless, that's just triflin. You lied about your age, how many kids you have and you wouldn't sign a prenup what kind of woman does that make her not an honest one I know that, she has no right to talk to about draya at all. Imani acting like she's miss goody two shoes, and her s*** don't stank. Smh

The only thing I can assume is that there is more to Imani & Draya. Maybe Draya knows about some of Imani's old hoe days or Draya F***** Stephen. Only reason I can see Imani being out for blood. I almost don't think Draya mouthed stephen's name bc why would Imani deny that? That's who the show tied her to. That's like Shaunie denying Shaq

Don't have kids but if I did... I wouldn't leave them with grandma, father, or a s*** infested house. They are your responsibility...

If my mindframe was young, I was still hot as hell in the ass, and not a responsible parent and it came down to that the first person I would leave my child with would be there daddy, because he is a great father and I know that would be best for my kid. If my mindframe was young, I was still hot as hell in the ass, and not a responsible parent is still do not believe I would ever leave my baby by himself in a feces infested apartment with kid cuisine so I can run around for some d***. I would never deny my child, no need to lie about my age( cause people do look at your driver license) but if the pre-nup is not protecting me in the longer run, I would not have signed that s*** either. I would have MY lawyer negotiate that s*** for the best of MY interest and not waited till the wedding day, I would have dug for my gold before we made it to the alter.

This girl is a trip... Don't throw stones when you live in a glass house. I think the charges against Draya are heinous. It is not my place to judge though and it was this broads place either... No woman has any right to call another woman worthless and the forum that she did it in made it worse. Now as for the allegations against Imani... something about Draya makes her insecurities amplified they say sometimes what we dislike most in others is what we dislike most in ourselves and I think it applies to this situation
