Ron Artest and Maya Sandiford Artest’s marriage


Maya Sandiford married Ron Artest in 2018, and the couple has been living a happy and wealthy life since their wedding. Metta World Peace’s wife was okay with altering his name because he was tired of his birth name.

Even though many rumors circulated on the internet, the couple’s relationship was unaffected, and they went on to celebrate their big day. According to sources, they did not offer a specific date when they initially met, although people began seeing them together in 2013.

Because Metta World Peace’s wife is a lovely lady, the prospect of them together gives people butterflies in their stomachs.

Ron Artest’s past relationship

Jennifer Palma

Ron Artest refused to comment on the specifics, but we know that he had a previous relationship with Jennifer Palma. When World Peace and his ex-partner were together, they had a child.

According to insiders, the cause for Jennifer and Ron Artest’s split and the details of their relationship has not been revealed.

Kimsha Artest


Ron Artest and his wife Kimsha have always had a rocky relationship. They married in 2003 after dating since high school.

She and Metta married in 2003, and their marriage lasted for eight years before ending in divorce. Saddie, Ron Artest III, and Diamond are the three children born to the couple.

Even though they were divorced when Ron arrived at the Lakers, he still included her in all the Laker festivities (including the parade, post-game championship interviews, etc.) They had previously been separated but reconciled.

The couple’s problems were regularly in the press. While Ron was in Chicago  years ago, he filed a domestic assault charge against Kimsha.

Then there was a 2007 incident with the Sacramento Kings in which Kimsha filed charges against him (which were later dropped.) I guess that explains why him being on various red carpets with his “artist”, the coming off his Twitter commentary, and the alleged sexting scandal that Deadspin is “exposing” him with isn’t a big deal.

The “sexting” situation’s purported specifics are a little strange.
