There is an explosive rumor going around among employees of ESPN. Word on the curb is that Stephen A Smith may be dating Jalen Rose’s estranged wife Molly Qerim, MTO News has learned.
Yesterday the world was blown away with reports that Jalen filed to divorce Molly after a little more than 2 years of marriage. According to Jalen’s divorce documents, he and Molly have been separated for the past year.
Molly has yet to respond to the divorce filing, so it’s not clear whether she agrees with Jalen’s separation timeline.
MTO News spoke with two ESPN employees who work close to Stephan A and Molly, and both said that they suspect that the two may be dating.
One employee explained, “She’s definitely Stephen A’s type, a non-Black woman with ‘exotic’ features.’ Molly is ethnically mixed, Italian and Albanian.
The other employee told MTO News, “They flirt a lot on camera. I thought it was all just play-play. But now that we learn she’s been single for a year. Yeah, it seems like something is up.”
Here’s a video of the two recently flirting on-air. Stephen A says to Molly “I need you”, and other flirtatious things. Later in the same segment Molly claimed that she and Stephen would be going to the Met gala next year “together.”
According to Jalen;s divorce filing, Molly had been single for nearly 9 months when she recorded this segment:
They make a real cute couple, if true. But we wonder how Stephan A’s ESPN colleague Jalen would feel if he finds that his wife and his homie are dating????
