Phoenix Suns big man Deandre Ayton appears to be stepping into a tempest that bears a resemblance to the Zion Williamson saga after Katt Leya revealed she was allegedly pregnant with his baby
A recent Instagram story featuring Ayton combing Katt Leya’s hair set social media ablaze, drawing immediate comparisons with Pelicans star Zion Williamson’s past entanglement with another adult film actress. Leya responded to the online furor, stating, “Wow now my man can’t brush my hair! You guys are stressed out, let me live.”
Deandre Ayton denies being the father of Katt Leya baby after she reveals she’s pregnant
Things took a more serious turn when Wags Unfiltered broke the news of Leya’s alleged pregnancy on Instagram, stating that Ayton is “pissed about it” and denies being the father. The source claimed that Leya conceived while on vacation and that Ayton was intoxicated during their intercourse.
Fallout and family drama
The source went on to suggest that Ayton never intended to leave his long-time partner Anissa, stating, “Anissa & Deandre never broke up, her and her sisters are inside the house right now.” Allegedly, Ayton told Anissa that he would continue to live his life as he pleases, fueling speculation and controversy.
Leya shuts down comparisons to Zion Williamson
Katt Leya took the opportunity to shut down comparisons between Ayton and Zion Williamson, who faced a similar controversy involving adult film actress Moriah Mills. Sharing a photo dated back to December 2019, Leya wrote, “2019… So stop the Zion comparison.”
The No. 1 overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Ayton already has a two-year-old son, Deandre Ayton Jr., from a previous relationship. If he is indeed the father of Leya’s child, he will be legally responsible for the baby, whether he acknowledges it or not.
The Zion Williamson parallel
For context, Zion Williamson underwent scrutiny when Moriah Mills threatened to release alleged intimate videos. However, unlike Ayton, Williamson has not addressed the situation publicly.
