Suzie Ketcham and Michael Olowokandi
Ketcham dated Michael Olowokandi, a former NBA basketball player for ten years. The pair first met while both were students at Pepperdine University and began dating soon after.
Unfortunately, Ketcham and Olowokandi broke up in 2001 after accusing him of assaulting her. However, she later took the accusations back and said, “I was the aggressor,” “I was extremely jealous when I saw Michael with the other girl.”
When later asked why she accused him in the first place, she replied, “How would you feel if you saw someone you had been with for two years with someone else? Where you lived for two years? I went crazy. I went bananas. I lost control. I was so emotional that I wanted to hurt Michael.”
However, Ketcham would address the abuse allegations in later episodes of the show Basketball Wives and stated that they were true.
Ketcham became pregnant with her and Olowokandi’s first child during her senior year of college and later gave birth to a second child.
She now lives with her kids in Miami and has stepped away from the spotlight to spend time with them.
After the show Basketball Wives permanently moved to L.A., Ketcham decided to focus on her family.
“We try for Suzie [to return], every year but her kids are in Miami, and it’s hard for her to just go away from them for three months at a time, if she had a TV show all the way in LA, so it’s logistics with her,” executive director Shaunie O’Neal disclosed to VH1 in 2016.
