Brandi Padilla Married/Husband
Brandi Padilla was just a regular chick until her marriage to Kevin thrust her into the limelight. It is 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 an uber private ceremony in California. As a result of the wedding, Kevin was unable to attend the Athens Olympic Games. 2004 was indeed a good year for Kevin as he was named NBA’s Most Valuable Player.
In 2007, when Garrett left the Minnesota Timberwolves for the Boston Celtics, the couple purchased an 8,000 square foot mansion in Concord, Massachusetts, for approximately $4.6 million. Designed by Boston’s Machado and Silvetti Associates, the mansion featured floor-to-ceiling windows, five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, a media room a wine cellar, and a gym.
When Kevin was traded to the Brooklyn Nets in 2013, the couple sold the mansion for a loss at $3.635 million.
Brandi’s marriage to Kevin was threatened by a rumor that Kevin had been cheating on her with a cheerleader. The news began swirling in 2011 during Kevin’s time with the Boston Celtics. Sources claimed that Kevin had an affair with the white lady named Krissy Freiberg for four years and that Freiberg had to move from Minnesota to Celtics when Kevin was transferred to Boston.
There were claims that Kevin even bought her season tickets for 2011. However, the rumors were never confirmed and have remained just rumors.
Brandi and Kevin aren’t one to tweet about any personal issue, they’d rather leave the media to their speculations. When the media once asked about his time away from the court due to family issues, Kevin made sure to give nothing away, simply replying; “Family issues are never public, so I ask [the media] to respect that.”

Brandi’s husband has the habit of posting pictures of the family without revealing their faces. What a private man he is.
