He is also a former National High School Basketball Player of the Year who led his high school Detroit Country Day to three Michigan State High School Basketball Championships. So many achievements to his name!
Now that we’ve talked enough about Chris, let’s come to his wife Erika.
When did they meet
Chris has always had a playboy image in NBA. He had a lot more than his share of women. But it was Erika who put a full stop to his relationships voyage. The couple met somewhere around 2007 and dated for two years. Chris says that after meeting Erika he realized that this is the type of woman he wants to spend his life with. After dating for a couple of years, they decided to take their relationship to next level. The couple got married in 2009 in a private ceremony of 200 guests at Chris’s home in Atlanta.
Chris and Erika
41-year-old Erica dates Webber was born on January 30, 1972. Now that she is married to NBA star Chris Webber, it’s a dream come true for her. These two never fail to have a good time together. They hang out at various clubs and are enjoying the time of their life. Recently, they were photographed together with the rapper Nas. You must already know that Webber has also had a career in music. He released a rap album from 1999 which did fairly well and included some big names from the late 90’s hip hop scene.
Erika on the other hand enjoys is the president of the Social Butterflies Mentoring Program. It’s a program which helps out low-income girls after school. They do all sort of activities together in the program which includes brunches, roller skating, book fairs at Barnes and Noble, ice cream socials, etc. It also has a workshop called a body image workshop which is meant to help girls appreciate themselves for who they are and develop their own sense of self-worth. We think this is a good initiative.
Chris also takes out time from his schedule for charity. He started an NGO called Timeout Foundation to help kids with educational and recreational opportunities. And to your surprise, this is not a recent thing. He started the foundation in 1993!
Where are they now?
The couple lived in their amazing house at Malibu which they recently had to sell at a price of 4 million. Their Malibu house sits on 0.65 acres and was built in 1995. While everything about it is modern, it interestingly emits a psychedelic look and feel. We are excited to know where the couple’s new abode is going to be! We hope it will be as amazing as the Malibu one.
