Los Angeles Lakers owner Jeanie Buss, 61, tied the knot with stand-up comedian, actor, and radio host Jay Mohr, 53, on Sunday in Malibu, California. The couple married in a small ceremony on a Malibu beach in front of 20 friends and family members.
There were not any NBA players or executives in attendance, according to TMZ Sports. The couple reportedly began dating in 2017, one year after she separated from then-fiancé Phil Jackson, an 11-time NBA championship coach with the Chicago Bulls (1989-98) and Lakers (1999-04, 2005-11).
The Lakers owner was also married to volleyball player Steve Timmons from 1990 to 1993.
Buss first revealed on X, formerly Twitter, that she was in a relationship with Mohr in September 2021. In an Instagram post, the Lakers owner wrote:
“Happiness. Love. Joy. That’s what you have given me on my birthday and every day in between. This picture taken at our friend’s wedding in June tells the story, our story. I guess a girl can have it all. I love you @jaymohr37.”
