Even as her former husband is poised to make a deep run in the playoffs, Joumana Kidd is upstaging Jason Kidd.
The well-connected website Urban Takeout.com is reporting that Joumana Kidd, 38, has pounced on top Arizona draft pick Patrick Peterson of LSU.
Urban Takeout reports that the former Mrs. Kidd and Peterson were “at the NFL Player’s Association rookie party” before leaving together. Peterson was the fifth pick in the first round of the NFL Draft last week.
Joumana and her son, T.J., became a frequent cutaway shot during the 2003 NBA Finals against the Spurs back when her former husband was playing for the New Jersey Nets. They had a messy divorce in 2007 when Kidd of physically and mentally abusing him, threatening to make false domestic violence complaints against him to police and of interfering with his relationship with his three children.
”The defendant’s extreme and unwarranted jealousy and rage has left the plaintiff concerned about her emotional stability,” Kidd’s divorce papers said at the time.
He’s moved on and now has the Dallas Mavericks aiming for their first trip to the NBA Finals since 2006.
And it seems that Peterson has been drafted by the Cardinals and taken up with a cougar.
