Ouch, that’s almost as bad as “Your mom should have swallowed you.” Retired NBA Legend Dr. J writes about his love child, tennis player Alexandra Stevenson, in his new autobiography and pretty much blames her mom’s braces for the one time he got in them guts instead of having her mom work jaws.
According to Page Six reports:
Julius Erving wouldn’t have fathered tennis player Alexandra Stevenson, 32, if her mother hadn’t gotten braces on her teeth, the Hall of Fame basketball player writes in his new autobiography, “Dr. J.”
Erving tells how he met Samantha Stevenson — whom he describes on the page as “a smart single woman — a pretty white girl, a bit of a hippie giving off a vibe of availability” — in 1978 when she was covering the Philadelphia 76ers for Sport magazine.
“She becomes someone who helps me unwind if I’m feeling high-strung or stressed. I can drive over and spend a relaxing evening that might even include oral,” Erving writes. “I can only remember one time that we actually had intercourse, and that was because she had just gotten this new orthodontia to straighten her teeth. With wire and gleaming metal bristling in her mouth, ‘oral’ was not an option.”
But Erving, known for his Dante de Blasio-like Afro and his thunderous dunks, felt terrible in 1999 when his and Samantha’s out-of-wedlock daughter — playing in the semifinals at Wimbledon — was caught in a media firestorm over her famous father.
“I’ve paid a terrible price for my sins and there is some justice in that. But should Alexandra have had to pay a price? What sin did she commit?”
Sorry Dad, but you didn’t exactly help with these details. Poor Alexandra.
