Klay Thompson’s girlfriend Shaila Singh is, well, good at looking good. That is- she’s a former Miss Pismo Beach, and she competes in beauty competitions. In 2011 she posted an unintentionally funny video of herself and trailing makeup-and-preparations entourage titled “Behind The Tiara” on youtube. Hey, her business is beauty, not storyboarding!
Klay has been with Shaila for a few years, but is in the very unusual position of not having access to his own money to wine and dine her. All of his salary payments go directly to his father, Mychal, who himself had a 13 year NBA career and was the 1978 number one draft pick. In fact, Mychal Thompson gives him an actual weekly allowance of $300, as he’s explained in numerous interviews. When asked about what Klay should do about taking his girlfriend on a date, he is quoted on Bleacher Report as saying, ““Go to Langers in Oakland … Go to the grocery store and get a nice bottle of wine for $30…”
Well, at least Shaila can get into Warriors games for free, and she’s got plenty to watch since Klay has been seeing a lot of minutes and really producing some solid numbers. At 6’7”, he’s one of the more serious threats as a stop-and-pop sharpshooter on the west coast. His free throw and 3-point percentages are also pretty decent at 42% and 80% respectively. Hopefully next year when his contract is bumped up to $3,000,000, Klay’s weekly allowance will rise past $300. Shaila is crossing her fingers!
