Kristi Toliver Husband, Gay, Net Worth, Parents

American professional basketball star Kristi Toliver is one of the few WNBA players, who has contributed to the sport for more than a decade.

The NBA, as a whole, might underappreciate her contributions, but her fans know that the craze for WNBA could not have established without the presence of Kristi in the court.

Non-Existent Husband, Gay?

While her fans would love to see Kristi settling down with a husband, her silent dating life has led many to assume that she is secretly gay. And, her actions have not contradicted those claims.

Kristi is often spotted hanging out with a lady friend, who is also rumored to be the basketball star's girlfriend. The duo was first seen together back in December 2012 when Kristi shared a photo of the two. In the caption, she admired the day, which was more beautified by the presence of her supposed partner.

While fans didn't expect their relationship to last long, the pair was still together by 2017. In March 2017, Kristi and her alleged girlfriend took a trip to Florence, Italy, where they visited the Ponte Vecchio and even thanked Hitler for not blasting the bridge.

Although Kristi still shares the photos of her rumored partner on social media, she has never come out as gay or accepted the lady as her girlfriend. However, her support for the LGBTQ community makes it hard to believe she is not a gay woman.

Kristi Toliver Bio

A native of Harrisonburg, Virginia, Kristi was born on 27 January 1987.

She was raised by her parents, George and Peggy Toliver, from whom she also derives her ethnicity. Her father previously worked as a referee for the NBA, which influenced Kristi to make a career in sports.

She played basketball while at Harrisonburg High School and continued playing at the University of Maryland. Kristi was later drafted as the 3rd overall by Chicago Sky in the 2009 draft after which she has never looked back.

Till date, she has performed for teams including Los Angeles Sparks and Washington Mystics.

As of now, she even serves as an assistant coach for Washington Wizards during the off-season. But, she was disappointed by her salary of only $10,000 per season from the team and asked for equal pay to both men and women.

However, her finances are well managed by her salary from WNBA, which amounts to nearly $75,000 per year. Kristi's net worth, meanwhile, is kept under the wraps.

Height & Weight

For an athlete, health is the most vital component that can make or ruin anybody's career. Physical traits can also play an essential part in enhancing an athlete's performance.

Kristi's height of 5 feet & 7 inches(1.7 m) and complimenting weight of 58 kgs has been a critical factor in establishing her dominance in the court.
