Basketball star James Johnson has his unique way to present himself in front of the world, whether with his colorful personality or a unique hairstyle, which only he can pull off.

While he is undoubtedly a great ambassador of the sport, James was in huge trouble from his fling with his wife of two years Callie Johnson that took place in June 2014.

The former Memphis Grizzlies star was arrested for charges of domestic assault and violence on his wife. He was taken away from his house to Shelby County Jail for the incident. Let’s know more about the player in detail.

Dating Or Married To Wife?

James Johnson carried a huge backslash on his reputation, starting with the legal trouble with his wife, Callie. For the same, he was arrested and lost focus from basketball as well.

However, he was released from custody as his ex-wife failed to appear in the court hearing in July 2014. The two eventually split up, and James lost custody of his only son Naymin from his ex-partner.

The most important thing in the world for the Raptors star was taken away from him, so in his remembrance, James inked a tattoo of his son’s name in his neck. The tattoo reminds him to work hard and focus on his work.

Saying that in 2017, when he moved to Miami, he fell in love with another woman, Diana Issa. The relationship became deeper and the pair even got engaged. 

Now, he is the father of two sons, which raises the question of whether it is from his relationship with Diana or a past dating affair.
