It appears Angela Rye is officially off the market after several news outlets are reporting that she is dating ESPN host and former Michigan Pacers baller Jalen Rose. The pair were recently spotted together at Tina Knowles’ 5th annual Wearable Art Gala honoring Angela Bassett and Mark Bradford at Barker Hangar.
While rumors swirled that Rose was dating someone new after his multi-million-dollar divorce, no one really knew who the new boo was. But pictures purport to show that Rye is officially his new girl.
Rye is the Principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm. She is also a special correspondent on ESPN and political commentator on CNN.
Rose is among one of NBA’s elite who was a small forward for six teams. The most notable moments in his career were alongside Reggie Miller on the Indiana Pacers where he made three consecutive Eastern Conference finals, and reached the 2000 NBA Finals. He averaged 14.3 points, 3.8 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game when he retired in 2007. He has since become a household name and one of the most recognizable faces on sports television. At ESPN, he found love and married ESPN host Molly Qerim, but the marriage ended in divorce earlier this year.
According to TMZ Sports, “Jalen says in court docs the marriage broke down irretrievably after Qerim moved to Connecticut. It should be known — in the docs, Jalen does not want alimony and doesn’t want Molly to have it, either. We’re told there was not a prenup and Molly does not want any spousal support.”
The report continues: “The breakup signs were all over social media — Molly previously included “Rose” in her name on Instagram and Twitter, but has recently scrubbed it from her accounts. Court records show Jalen Rose filed docs earlier this year … kickstarting the process to end their two-and-a-half year marriage. Sources tell us the breakup was amicable and both sides remain cordial.”
The couple tied the knot in 2018 and while we’re sad to see his marriage didn’t work out, we’re happy to see he’s allegedly found love again!
