Angela Rye’s Welcome Back Brittney Griner Post Sparks Jalen Rose Dating Rumors

I think it’s safe to say Angela Rye and Jalen Rose are officially dating.

Angela and Jalen pulled up to WNBA star Brittney Griner’s first home game since she’s been back stateside and they looked very comfy and cozy courtside as the Phoenix Mercury faced off against the Chicago Sky game on May 21.

You may recall that Angela Rye was a huge advocate for Britney Griner’s release from a Russian prison, where she spent nearly 10 months before she was released in a prisoner swap on December 8, 2022, for Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout.

Brittney was detained in Russia on February 17 after Russian authorities accused her of carrying hashish oil in her luggage at an airport in Moscow.

The Phoenix Mercury set it out for Brittney’s first game back with numerous events and musical performances.

During the game, the camera kept panning the front row showing former NBA star Jalen Rose and Angela Rye courtside.

Angela Rye posted a few pics from the game that got the commenters going, and she responded to some comments without confirming or denying the dating rumors.

Now, this isn’t the first time Jalen and Angela have popped out together.

In April, Angela posted a video of her and Jalen in the car together sharing their thoughts on March Madness.

Angela’s celebrity friends wasted no time inquiring into what was going on between the two of them. 

Comedian and actress Leslie Jones straight up wrote, “Wait are y’all dating?”

Actor Dondre Whitfield commented, “Uhhhhhm. What do we have here????? I see some chemistry…ok. I’ll wait.”

Jalen Rose was previously married to ESPN’s Molly Qerim (2018), but he filed for divorce nearly three years later.

Angela Rye is the Principal and CEO of IMPACT Strategies, a political advocacy firm.

She is also a special correspondent for ESPN and a former liberal political commentator on CNN.

In the past, Angela was romantically linked to rapper and actor Common.
