Last night Ron Artest attended the Twilight movie premiere in Los Angeles with a lovely young lady who wasn’t his wife. Last month Artest attended a similar event with the same woman.
During TV interviews last night before the movie, Artest didn’t introduce the woman nor was she identified in press photos. Getty Images only referenced her as “guest.” Black entertainment gossip site MediaTakeOut.com had this reaction today to Artest’s choice of companionship:
Some of these NBA balers are just so BRAZEN with their sloppiness. MediaTakeOut.com learned that NBA baller Ron Artest has been bringing some exotic looking out with hm to red carpet events recently. The “official” word is that they WORK TOGETHER.
But one MediaTakeOut.com snitch suspects MORE. The insider explained, “Why are they always hugging and acting like a couple . . . that’s very DISRESPECTFUL to his wife.”
The insider continues, “Besides, I’d bet they’re f*cking.” Before joining the Lakers, Ron would NEVER be so blatant as to bring ANOTHER WOMAN to an event.
He and his wife Kimsha were together for nearly 20 years . . since the two were living together in a NYC housing.
Indeed, Kimsha can be seen with Artest and the couple’s children during a postgame interview on ESPN’s NBA Finals telecast last week.
So who is this mysterious, attractive Asian woman?
She goes by ‘Shin Shin’ and was mentioned on ESPNLosAngeles.com recently:
After the game, Artest told ESPNLosAngeles.com that the funeral was for attorney Peter Lopez who died of an apparent suicide last Friday. Lopez was a well-known entertainment lawyer whose clients included Michael Jackson and Chinese singer Shin Shin, an artist signed to Artest’s label, Tru Warier Records.
Shin Shin, who is not listed as an artist on Artest’s official website for Tru Warier, originally met the NBA player during his summer visit to China in 2009.
