It’s known that Kelly Oubre Jr. isn’t the first NBA player that Shy dated. Based on previous reports, Shylynnita previously dated Houston Rockets’ star, James Harden. That was until she met Oubre.

Harden was at a training camp in Arizona, where Oubre was previously a member of the Phoenix Suns. Rumors indicate Oubre stole Harden’s girl away. The two went on a getaway to California, which even led to some beef involving Harden and Oubre.

In terms of a following, Shylynnitaa has an Instagram account that currently has about 68,000 followers. She’s posted images there of herself in bikinis and even a few photos of her and Kelly Oubre Jr together.

That includes a throwback Grease movie poster starring the couple in the lead roles.

Her IG bio links to a Twitch channel, which is marked for “mature audiences” and where she has just one video available about Fortnite.

It’s possible she’s a gamer and may do some live streaming there in the future. Possibly Oubre Jr. will participate on the streams with different games like Fortnite or NBA 2K?

In addition to the modeling Shy does, she’s also a musical artist. Shy has songs called Princess, Huracan, Boss B**ch, and Plugged In released under Robbonation Music Group.

Her songs were all released in early 2019. They are currently available on Apple Music, YouTube Music, Spotify, and other platforms.

Beyond that, Shy has managed to keep her life relatively private. However, more details about Kelly Oubre Jr.’s future wife are sure to arrive as she prepares for married life with the basketball star!
