Instagram Story

Stephen Curry writes wife Ayesha a touching message after she received criticism for her new blonde look.

On Sunday, the “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen” star surprised fans when she showed off a new hairstyle on Instagram.

“Mom goes blonde (temporarily),” the cookbook author captioned a video of her and her husband in a car.

However, after pics and videos of Ayesha’s new ’do went viral, a number of fans thought she looked… different.

“I was like ‘who is this white woman’ at first,” an Instagram user wrote.

“I’m appalled that Ayesha curry fr looks like a white women [sic] in this pic im SICKKKK” a Twitter commenter said.

“Who is this Caucasian woman?” another added on IG.

Following the controversy, Stephen wrote a public note to Ayesha, letting her know that, “You beautiful baby.”

“And don’t you let anybody tell you differently ok? I mean it,” the NBA star wrote in the comments section. “There’s just a bunch of meanies out there and I don’t like it. I don’t like it one bit. Do you boo boo.”

The Golden State Warriors point guard also confirmed that his wife wore a wig and did not chemically alter her hair color.

“P.S. If the wig falls off I won’t tell anybody, I promise. Pinky promise. It be hilarious though, but won’t anybody know,” he joked. “Wait- that’s been you in this bed the whole time??? I ain’t even know. Now I’m tripping.”

Ayesha — whose father is of African-American and Polish descent and whose mother is of Afro-Jamaican and Chinese-Jamaican descent — also laughed off the drama, writing Sunday night on Twitter:

Stephen and Ayesha tied the knot in 2011 and share three children.
