A Golden State Warriors fan sent social media into a tizzy when she was captured looking suggestively at Steph Curry during his Game 2 win over Cleveland. That fan has outed herself on Instagram as model Roni Rose, 27. She’s a friend of Matt Barnes, or at least hung out it with him, and has been a ring girl for MMA promotion Conquer Fighting Championships. Rose said upon outing herself that she was, “giving the boys a little motivation, I guess.” It certainly seemed to work as the Warriors routed LeBron James and his boys 110-77.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. She Calls Herself a Fan of Both the Warriors & the Lakers
In her caption on a screengrab of the Steph Curry moment, Rose wrote:
Sooo I was just drinking my drink and this happened. I’m just giving the boys a little motivation I guess. Go warriors lol.
Other photos on that page show her at Lakers games as well the Raiders and 49ers in the NFL. According to her Facebook page, Rose is a native of Modesto, California, but has lived in Hayward, close to the Bay Area in 2006. Photos on that page show her at earlier Warriors’ games during the Dubs’ 2016 playoff run. When asked about her favorite sports teams on her Ask.fm page in 2014, Rose replied, “Lakers/warriors and raiders.”
2. Rose Is as a Stripper at One of Larry Flynt’s Clubs
In addition to her stripping career, Rose has served as a ring girl for MMA promotion Conquer Fighting Championships. Though on her Ask.fm page, Rose was largely asked about her stripping career working for Larry Flynt’s Hustler clubs. She spoke about how she got into it saying, “Started go-go dancing then I was approached by someone that said you can make more money if or when my top comes off. They were right.”
On her Model Mayhem page, Rose says, “I don’t do nude or topless. I do my own hair and make-up and can provide clothing. I have a 2-hour minimum.” She told Kaboom magazine in 2015, “I feel sexiest when I’m on stage dancing or I front of a camera.”
3. She’s Married to Rapper Tone P & the Couple Have a Daughter
On her Twitter page, Rose describes herself as a “mommy/dancer/model/hustler.” Rose said that having her baby was the best decision she ever made.
Her husband is rapper Tone P aka Antonio Neal. She said on Ask.fm that she met him in Las Vegas and that he is her number one fan. The couple met in 2009 and married in 2012.
She told Kaboom Magazine about what she looks for in a man is, “Successful, straight teeth, smells good, in shape, knows how to spoil women, and know how to please in bed.” Rose also gave her celebrity crush as T.I.
