Beloved and highly revered ex-NBA legend Julius “Dr. J” Erving(pictured right), now admits in his tell-all autobiography, “Dr. J.,” that braces led to the conception of his famed daughter Alexandra Stephenson (pictured), according to the New York Post.
In his book, Erving says that his extramarital dalliances with Stephenson’s mother, Samantha, whom he met in 1978, was purely sexual. According to Erving, Samantha was “a smart single woman — a pretty White girl, a bit of a hippie giving off a vibe of availability,” he writes in the book. Erving brazenly states in his memoir, that every time he and Samantha got together, she satisfied him orally and the one time she decided to get braces and could not please him in the usual manner, they had intercourse.
Ergo, the birth of Alexandra!
In his book, Erving writes about his sports journalist former mistress:
She becomes someone who helps me unwind if I’m feeling high-strung or stressed. I can drive over and spend a relaxing evening that might even include oral sex,” Erving writes. I can only remember one time that we actually had intercourse, and that was because she had just gotten this new orthodontia to straighten her teeth. With wire and gleaming metal bristling in her mouth, oral sex was not an option.
The now-32-year-old Alexandra, who achieved a high-ranking of No. 18 in the world during her career and had even reached the semifinals at Wimbledon in 1999, reportedly met her dad in 2008 at her own urging.
According to Erving, his lack of involvement in Alexandria’s life was due to his wife not wanting him to have relations with his statuesque 6’1″ daughter. Erving also stated that maintaining his “image” was a priority because having a child out-of-wedlock was not a positive.
