Did Stephen A. Smith finally get Molly Qerim?
There has been a recent rumor circulating online that claims Stephen A. Smith and his First Take co-host, Molly Qerim, are dating. This rumor has fans buzzing, especially since Molly was previously married to Jalen Rose.
While speculation about their relationship has been around for over a year, a parody Twitter account with the handle @TheNBACentel shared a new claim that gained significant attention. But unfortunately for those that wanted this to really be true, it’s just from another crap parody account.
Stephen A. Smith and Molly Qerim are reportedly dating. Their fans have thoughts, per @JalenRose
“I hit her with the ‘I'm no weatherman, but you can expect 2 inches tonight.’ From there she fell in love with me.” ??

Although the tweet has been proven to be fake, it managed to deceive many fans and has received over half a million views.
This development occurred right after Molly and Jalen Rose announced their divorce in 2021, sparking further rumors about her alleged involvement with Stephen A. Despite the rumors, Jalen Rose, in addressing the situation, expressed that he and Molly had been separated for almost a year and that they have decided to remain friends and colleagues moving forward.
He also clarified that the speculation regarding Stephen A. Smith bothered him, as their relationship is purely a friendship. Jalen Rose was recently let go by ESPN, while Stephen A. and Molly continue to be employed by the company.
