Being the wife of a celebrity and superstar athlete can be glamorous, but that allure can come at a price. The wife of an NBA basketball star has recently spoken out about the high price that she has paid to be part of the celebrity limelight and the fast pace of a basketball wife, including the domestic violence in their marriage.
Jayson Williams, now 43, played for the New Jersey Nets. He and his wife, Tanya Young Williams have two daughters together. However, he has not seen his wife for the past year. This is because he is currently in jail on a 2002 aggravated assault charge involving the death of a limo driver at Williams' New Jersey mansion. Last year, Jayson Williams was sentenced to five years in prison.
