Shortly after her mother’s death, when she was in “self-destruction”, she met the NBA all-star.

“Dennis was the life of the party,” she told Oprah. “He was fun. I started drinking. People couldn’t understand why I loved him. Because he had a reputation for being a bad boy.”

The duo infamously got married in Las Vegas in 1998, with Dennis filing for an annulment only nine days later. They went on to reconcile, only to call it quits after four months together.

She went on to say the couple understood each other because they were both in pain. She continued, “Our relationship was very passionate. So when it was good, it was amazing. When it was bad, it was the worst.”
