Maja Dragić is known as the lovely wife of Goran Dragic, a Slovenian professional basketball player. But there were rumors at one point that they might be separating. There were rumors about potential affairs, with Maja cheating on Goran. How much truth is in those rumors? What really happened?
Today, we will discuss the life and biography of Maja, and her husband, and address the cheating rumors.
Who is her famous partner?
Born in May 1986, Goran Dragić is a Slovenian professional basketball player. He has played for several teams in the National Basketball Association. He is nicknamed The Dragon. Before entering the NBA in 2008, he played professional basketball in Slovenia and Spain. Fun fact: his brother, Zoran Dragic, also plays professional basketball and is part of the Slovenian National team.
During his NBA career, he played for the Phoenix Suns, Miami Heat, Houston Rockets, Toronto Raptors, Brooklyn Nets, Milwaukee Bucks, and Chicago Bulls. Here is a fun fact: he was actually drafted by the San Antonio Spurs, who have a reputation for drafting international players. But his rights were traded to the Suns.
He was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 1986. At the time, Slovenia was part of Yugoslavia, a federation of several countries.
He made his professional basketball debut in 2003, at the age of 17. He played in the Slovenian minor league, but one year later, he transferred to the top-level League and Adriatic League club Slovan.
After playing for Slovan for two years, he transferred to the Spanish ACB League, playing in the club Murcia. In 2007, he joined the Slovenian club Union Olimpija and played there during the 2007-08 season. He helped the team win the Slovenian League championship.
In the 2008 NBA draft, he was selected 45th overall by the San Antonio Spurs. But his draft rights were traded for cash considerations and the 48th pick, Malik Hairston. The Suns officially signed him on September 22nd, 2008. They hoped he would take over the starting point guard position, and he quickly adapted to the new playing style in the NBA.
In February 2011, he was traded to the Houston Rockets in exchange for Aaron Brooks. In April 2011, in the season finale with the Rockets, he recorded his first triple-double, scoring 11 points, grabbing 11 rebounds, and dishing 11 assists.
During the 2011 NBA lockout, he was one of the several players to look for a job elsewhere. He played for Saski Baskonia for a brief period until the lockout ended. Once he returned to the Rockets, he was used as a bench player for most of the time.
In 2012, he became an unrestricted free agent and signed his first big contract, a 4-year, $30 million deal with a player option with the Phoenix Suns. He was brought in to replace Steve Nash, whom he played behind during his first stint with the team in Arizona.
In the past several years, he has transitioned to being a role player on contending teams, like the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks. His biggest success in the NBA was winning the 2014 NBA Most Improved Player Award, and getting named to the 2014 All-NBA Third team alongside Damian Lillard, LaMarcus Aldridge, Al Jefferson, and Paul George.
Now let’s talk about his celebrity wife, Maja Dragić. She is the beautiful and stunning partner of the Slovenian basketball player. Same as Goran, she was born in Slovenia, but there is not much information about her exact birthplace or birthdate.
While she is a celebrity spouse, Maja doesn’t share much personal information on social media. There is no info about her early life, educational background, or professional career.
Maja has been mostly in the spotlight because of her marriage to Goran.
Marriage to Goran
Maja and Goran Dragić got married in 2013 in a traditional Slovenian style wedding. They were dating for a long time before getting married. Their marriage ceremony included a unique tradition, wearing crowns for the special day. It is a common tradition in the Balkans and Slovenia.
They have a home in their native country. Together, they have raised two children. Their son Mateo Dragić was born in November 2013, while their daughter Viktoria Dragić was born in August 2015 in Serbia.
Speaking about his family, Goran has said that the “birth of his son is an unbelievable experience”.
Maja has been a lovely wife to Goran for many years. She often attends his NBA matches. As for her professional career, she is a stay-at-home wife, taking care of the children and the home.
There are some reports they met even before Goran entered the NBA. They were immediately attracted to each other and fell in love.
But they got married when Goran was already in the NBA. So, there were some NBA stars in attendance.
Addressing the cheating rumors
There are fans out there asking whether Goran is still with his wife Maja Dragic. They are still married, without any official word of divorce.
At one point, there were some cheating rumors. According to the reports, Maja cheated on Goran with her trainer.
But neither she nor Goran have come forward in the media and talked about it. But as far as we know, they are still together. Maja and Goran have been together for more than 8 years, and they have two beautiful children together.
Is she on social media?
With all the attention she is getting for being the wife of an NBA player, Maja likes to keep her personal life and personal information private. She does have a social media profile on Instagram. But she uses it to post pictures of her holidays. One might think she works as a model. Maja poses in all of her pictures on social media.
But as far as we know, she does not work as a model. She might be sponsoring and advertising some brands on Instagram, but we do not know it.
Her husband, on the other hand, has more than 474k followers on Instagram. Goran uses his profile to share thoughts and ideas on his basketball life.
How much is the net worth of Goran Dragic? There is no clear answer to this question. There are reports of more than $245 million you can find online. But we do not believe that to be true.
If you look at Goran’s career earnings, he hasn’t come close to $245. His two big contracts are the 4-year, $30 million he signed with the Phoenix Suns and a 5-year, $90 million contract he signed with the Miami Heat in 2015.
As for Maja’s net worth, it remains a mystery. After all, we do not know what she does for a living. We can only assume she is a stay-at-home wife.
