Paul George’s Bio & Age
Paul George was born on May 2, 1990, as Paul Clifton Anthony George in Palmdale, California, as the youngest child and only son of his parents, Paul and Paulette George. He and his two sisters – Teiosha and Portala – were raised by their parents in Palmdale. His family seems to have a fondness for athletics, as all three are active in one sport or another. His oldest sister Teiosha is a basketball player and played at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California, while his immediate older sister Portala preferred volleyball and played at California State University in San Bernardino.
George, also a basketball player, developed a love for the game at a young age. An avid basketball player, the boy played against his sister at every opportunity and was a fan of the Los Angeles basketball franchises – Clippers and Lakers.
He attended Knight High School and played on the school’s basketball team in his first year. In his senior year, he averaged 23.2 points and 11.2 rebounds.
Paul George chose California State University, despite the fact that prestigious colleges such as Pennsylvania State University, Georgetown University, and others offered him opportunities for his talent. He chose CSU because he felt he would get more playing time there.
Paul’s professional career began when he was selected by the Indiana Pacers in the 2010 NBA Draft. His talent certainly made him a starting place in the team line-up with jersey number 24. However, in 2014 he would change his number to 13, which would earn him the nickname “PG-13”.
Paul George let his anger get the better of him in a game against the Toronto Raptors in the 2015-16 season, as he felt his team was being pushed hard by the referee. His criticism was later severely punished when he was fined $10,000 for his comments. Nonetheless, he played basketball for the Pacers from 2010 to 2017 before moving back to Oklahoma City Thunder, where he played for Domantas Sabonis and Victor Oladipo.
Although he publicly stated in 2018 that he would like to join the Los Angeles Lakers, he extended his stay with the Thunders by signing a four-year contract worth $137 million.
Is Paul George Married? Wife, Girlfriend, Baby Mama
Paul George is not yet married and as such has no wife, but his love and relationship life is interesting. The tall and handsome George has not been with so many women in his life, but he has been officially associated with two women just enough to call his love life controversial. It is known that he dated Daniela Rajic, a cabaret dancer, and Jessica Burciaga, a Playboy model, and actress. Paul started dating the latter after he broke up with the former in 2013.
Daniela Rajic met George at the Tootsie Club, where she worked as a dancer in 2013, and their relationship with George lasted only a few months. But this was not to be the end of their relationship, because the Miami-born dancer became pregnant and named the basketball star as the father of her unborn child. The revelations were just beginning when she further revealed that George had asked her to abort the child and offered her the sum of $1 million to do so – an offer she supposedly declined.
When the media spread the story, George accepted to have an affair with Danilla but refused to offer her money to terminate her pregnancy. He chose to have a test to confirm that he was responsible for the child when the baby, a little girl – Olivia – was born and the test confirmed him as the father.
Paul George currently dates the beautiful American model Jessica Burciaga. Burciaga, known as Jessie, is famous as a Playboy model and was Playboy’s Playmate of the Month in February 2009. Her relationship with the NBA star began in 2013 and there is still no sign of slowing down, although both parties have not revealed any intentions to walk down the aisle as man and woman. We can only wait and see.
Rumor has it that Paul George also had an affair with his teammate, the wife of Roy Hibbert, Valerie Cooke. A rumor that he vehemently put down in the social media.
