Ayesha Curry’s stance on public bikini pictures has changed, and it increased her popularity on social media this weekend.
Curry, the 31-year-old wife of 2-time NBA MVP Steph Curry, posted a few bikini photos on her Instagram profile Saturday.
Ayesha captioned the photos “Took me long enough”. That could be a reference to her 2015 Twitter post where she was against people barely wearing clothes.
Everyone's into barely wearing clothes these days huh? Not my style. I like to keep the good stuff covered up for the one who matters

Ayesha opened up last year about being depressed about her body after one of her pregnancies. The good news is her feelings have obviously changed, and she’s a lot more confident now. Congratulations to her for getting past that, and congratulations to Steph on the spicy photos he’s receiving.

Steph Curry did not participate in this year’s All-Star Game because he has only played in four games this season due to a hand injury. Even though he wasn’t in Chicago for the NBA festivities, he sure was loving what he saw.
Steph’s wife Ayesha posted on her Instagram Story Sunday night to say how hyped up they were over the format for the All-Star Game.
“This game is great” she wrote in one post. In another, she said the new format was “amazing.”
And she also posted this video of Steph loving it:

Steph was missed this year. The two-time NBA MVP had made six straight All-Star Games until this year. On the other side, at least he got to have a vacation during the break unlike past years.
But this is further confirmation that the new format was widely appreciated, except for one issue.
Ayesha Curry had some jokes on Instagram about the alleged nude photo leak involving her husband Steph Curry.
Ayesha decided to joke about the whole matter with some allusions to it via Instagram. She made eggplant parmesan for dinner (according to Page Six) and used an eggplant emoji as well.

The eggplant emoji is used by many in reference to a certain male sex organ.
Whether or not the photos are real, the Currys are doing a good job of brushing the matter aside.
Celebrities having intimate photos that they intended to remain private leaked online has become an epidemic in recent years, and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry appears to be the latest victim.
At some point early Friday morning, photos that allege to show Curry nude began circulating on social media. It is unclear where the photos originated, and Curry had commented on the situation as of the time this post was written.
Sharing nude photos of a person online without their consent is illegal, and the state of California has strict laws in place prohibiting it. As USA Today notes, Penal Code Section 647(j)(4) says it is illegal to “[distribute] the images, where the victim is identifiable; with the intent to cause serious emotional distress to the victim; and the victim actually suffered such distress.” The crime is punishable with up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,000.
Unfortunately, there are many ways for hackers to get their hands on personal information these days. When the photos began circulating, many fans immediately thought of how Steph’s wife Ayesha said in an interview that she is afraid of Steph’s phone being hacked because he has “spicy” photos on it.
Correction: A previous version of this post stated that nude photos of both Stephen and Ayesha had been leaked online. Only photos that appeared to show Steph were leaked.
Ayesha Curry was mocked by Twitter trolls for having a good time at the opening of her restaurant this week, and her husband had her back as usual.
Mrs. Curry and celebrity chef Michael Mina were in Del Mar, Calif., to open their fourth International Smoke location. Ayesha was enjoying the night and decided to bust out the popular “Milly Rock” dance, which drew some criticism from the bowels of the internet.

After Ayesha was taunted with several memes and tweets, Stephen Curry responded to the trolls with an Instagram live video.

“Slow news day today I see, huh? Just make sure y’all send me the video of you dancing at your own restaurant opening,” Steph said.
Steph and Ayesha always have each other’s backs, which we saw during the playoffs with the way Ayesha went at Drake on social media. This time, it was Steph who decided to fight off the trolls.
Ayesha Curry admits she sends husband Steph “spicy” photos to keep things fresh while he’s on the road.
Ayesha was on E! News’ “Daily Pop” to talk about her new show “Family Food Fight”. She was asked whether she sends Steph “spicy photos” while he’s on the road and said she sends him “hundreds. Hundreds of them.”
Ayesha was then asked if she was worried about Steph being hacked and the photos going public.
“Absolutely! And he won’t delete them off his phone,” Ayesha said. “And he’s not that secure, this phone. It’s actually one of the scariest things in my life. But that’s why I (only take them) neck down.”
So that’s the strategy: only go neck down that way you cannot be positively identified as being part of the photo. But if Steph’s phone were ever hacked and the pictures came up, people would know who they came from.
Ayesha, who has three children with Steph, recently complained about craving attention that has gone away now that she’s a mother. She even opened up about a botched plastic surgery she endured.
Here’s video of her interview:
The Toronto Raptors fan who made a repulsive comment about Ayesha Curry on live television after Game 2 has been arrested and is facing a charge.
Tristan Warkentin, a 28-year-old from Toronto, was arrested Thursday and charged with “Mischief – Interfere with Lawful Operation of Property.” The charge stems from Warkentin appearing on CP24 News and making an explicit remark about Curry, the wife of Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Toronto Police say Warkentin was arrested because he was made aware that he was on live television and still chose to say what he said. He is scheduled to appear in court on July 11.
Ayesha Curry previously made headlines during the NBA Finals for responding to Drake trolling Steph, but there’s no place for what Warkentin said. He deserves to face consequences for it.
