Brandi Padilla is best known as the wife of former NBA star Kevin Garnett. Thanks to her model-like figure, Padilla has appeared on numerous lists of the hottest WAGs (wives and girlfriends of top professional athletes).
Brandi Padilla Bio, Career
Brandi Alyssa Padilla was born in the United States on 25 January 1976. While her father’s name is not known, Brandi’s mother’s name is Bernardette Padilla. She was born in San Pedro. Brandi has a sister named Lisa Padilla who is married to the popular Def Jam producer Jimmy Jam Harris. It seems the Padilla sisters have a weakness for famous men…
Brandi and her husband try to keep their private lives as far away from the media as possible, so not much is known about Brandi’s education and the schools she attended. There is no information about what she does for a living, but some sources claim that she is a model, but there are not enough facts to confirm this.
Brandi Padilla Married/Husband
Brandi Padilla was a normal chick until her marriage to Kevin put her in the spotlight. It’s not clear how and when the couple met, but when they were ready to walk down the aisle, they let the media know.
After several years of dating, Brandi and Kevin tied the knot in July 2004 in a very private ceremony in California. As a result of the wedding, Kevin was unable to attend the Olympic Games in Athens. 2004 was indeed a good year for Kevin, as he was named the most valuable player in the NBA.
When Garrett left the Minnesota Timberwolves for the Boston Celtics in 2007, the couple bought an 8,000-square-foot mansion in Concord, Massachusetts, for about $4.6 million. The mansion, designed by Machado and Silvetti Associates of Boston, had floor-to-ceiling windows, five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a media room, a wine cellar, and a gym.
When Kevin was sold to the Brooklyn Nets in 2013, the couple sold the mansion at a loss of $3.635 million.
Brandi’s marriage to Kevin was threatened by a rumor that Kevin was cheating on her with a cheerleader. The news began to swirl in 2011 during Kevin’s time at the Boston Celtics. Sources claimed that Kevin had an affair with a white woman named Krissy Freiberg for four years and that Freiberg had to move from Minnesota to the Celtics when Kevin was transferred to Boston.
It was claimed that Kevin even bought their 2011 season tickets. However, the rumors were never confirmed and have remained just rumors.
Brandi and Kevin are not ones to tweet about any personal topic, they prefer to leave the media to their speculations. When the media once asked about his time outside of court on family matters, Kevin made sure he didn’t give anything away by simply replying, “Family matters are never public, so I [the media] ask you to respect that.
Brandi Padilla Kids, Family
Brandi and Kevin share two charming daughters. Their first daughter, Capri Garnett, was born on April 18, 2008. In 2013 the couple was blessed with another daughter whose name was hidden from the media. Unlike his wife, Kev is very active in social media, where he calls his daughters by their nicknames.
Brandi’s husband has the habit of posting pictures of the family without revealing their faces. What a private man he is.
The difference in altitude between Brandi and Kevin is crass and visible for everyone. While her former NBA star husband stands 6 feet 1 inch tall, Padilla’s height is 5 feet 3 inches.
