Paul George’s girlfriend Callie Rivers has had a rough go of it.
Rivers, the daughter of NBA Head Coach Doc Rivers, has previously been involved in relationships with NCAA star Dexter Strickland, as well as Patriots linebacker and Florida classmate Brandon Spikes. After both of those relationships ended (and the Spikes relationship ended in spectacularly public fashion – his choice, mind you), one may have thought Callie would take a break from dating high profile athletes. Unfortunately, it would appear chose yet another high profile boyfriend, this time in the form of Indiana Pacers star Paul George (this is admittedly this is the first we’ve heard of the couple being together, but multiple media reports have cited this relationship).
Paul George has seen his fame rise in recent months, and with the fame comes notoriety, and with the notoriety comes plenty of opportunity, and Paul George’s mistress Daniela is a perfect example of this. Reports allege that George and Daniela (a former stripper at Tootsie’s in Miami) met at a yacht party over the summer, and became involved in a relationship that ultimately ended in Daniela getting pregnant. After signing a $90M extension with the Pacers, and becoming involved in a stable, feel good story with the daughter of a highly respect head coach, the last thing George wanted to deal with was battling a child support battle. In the latest example in a bizarre and alarming trend of professional athletes offering payouts for their mistresses to get abortions, Paul George allegedly offered Daniela $1,000,000 payout to not follow through with the pregnancy. The same reports indicate that Daniela declined the offer, and is proudly showing off her bump on Instagram.
Neither George, Rivers, Daniela or the Indiana Pacers have publicly spoken on the issue. Paul George gears up for All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, where he’s sure to get plenty of quality time with Callie Rivers brother, and current New Orleans Pelican, Austin Rivers. If the story is true, let’s all hope that Callie Rivers can move on and find someone to stay faithful to her.
