Obviously, many know Caressa Suzzette Madden as the second-wife of former NBA star Delonte West, but she is much more than that. The Dallas Texas native came in the life of West as he struggled financially post-NBA career, but she never left the side of former Cavaliers player.

As of 2021, it is already more than 7 years since they married, and throughout these years, they went through hurdles to make the month’s end. Even more, at one point, West’s video of panhandling went viral all over social media.

Despite this, the strong affection between the two remains, and even more, they are parents to 2 kids. So, here we are with more about Caressa Suzzette Madden and her married life.

When Did Caressa Suzzette Madden and Delonte West Meet?

Not everything can the money be equivalent to! Especially when you are in desperate need of support (emotionally). And Caressa probably became one of many exemplary wives to define the bond of love.

The couple met back in 2012 at a mutual friend’s home, and none thought it would be love at first sight for them, which later saw a bridge to marriage. But, by that time, the Dallas Mavericks point guard was already facing financial struggles- a hard time living. Suzzette Madden knew all about it, but this couldn’t stop her from developing affection for West.

Shortly after dating, they moved in together in the former NBA star’s house in Fort Washington; the 8-bedroom house was allegedly worth $1 million. Reportedly, as West went unemployed, they could not afford a water heater but used a stove to heat the water instead.

However, it never proved a hurdle to the couple who married in 2013 with vows of ‘acceptance no matter what’ in an intimate wedding ceremony. In fact, the former basketball player had proposed to Caressa, putting a jump rope on her finger, as he couldn’t afford an engagement ring.

She is the second wife of Delonte West; the 38-year-old former basketballer was married to Kimberly Wad before they divorced in 2010 after a few months of marriage.

At the peak of his career, West, who earned $16 million, saw downfall to debts after his NBA star hood began to fade, leaving him with a net worth of $1,000.

After a few months of her wedding with West, Caressa Suzzette Madden welcomed her first child, Cash West, in 2013. Moreover, they became parents to another son in 2014 but have not opened up much about their second child.

Luxury is one of the celebrity world’s major focuses. So, it’s evident that the spotlight takes no time to swipe away in its absence. Even more, since the two are not much active on social media. Barely any update on their personal life comes forth. Though as per online sources, Caressa Suzzette Madden is still married and together.

Viral Panhandling Video Of Caressa’s Husband Delonte West- What Does He Do Now?

Diagnosed with bipolar disorder, West saw a degrading NBA career, and after 15 seasons, he dropped off the playing career. He then went unemployed, plus his NBA earnings were short-lived due to excessive expenses and improper financial management.

In February 2016, the former NBA player became viral after a video of him seemingly homeless on barefoot surfaced online. Even though Delonte West denied it, his other videos of such misery came again in 2020.

Then, after photos of him panhandling at Dallas circulated in September 2020, the Mavericks owner Mark Cuban picked him up and paid for his treatment at Rebound Therapy Center in Florida. As for the update on West, he works at the same rehab facility in 2021.
