Erik Spoelstra has a new girlfriend, and Miami Heat fans will be happy to hear that he is sticking with the Heat family even in his personal life. Spoelstra likes his team so much that he decided to date one of its former dancers, 24-year-old Nikki Sapp.
According to Gossip Extra, the 42-year-old Spoelstra attended a fundraiser sponsored by Heat broadcasters Eric Reid and Tony Fiorentino and was accompanied by Sapp.
Sapp began dancing for the Heat in 2006, just after she turned 18. She is now a director at Guy Hepner art gallery in West Hollywood and splits her time between Miami and Los Angeles.
Spoelstra and Sapp have reportedly been dating for more than two years, so the two have done a pretty good job of keeping their relationship quiet. Considering Spoelstra is nearly twice the young lady’s age, it’s possible that played into his decision to not make any public appearances with her. Or, it’s also possible that he is just a private person.
In any event, life seems to be going well for Coach Spo at the moment. The Heat have dominated the NBA with 18 straight victories and his lady friend is quite easy on the eyes.
