Who is Kristen Scott? 'Basketball Wives' star 'judged' for being married to Byron Scott's adopted son Thomas
'Adopted children to me are even more precious [because] you get to choose to have this particular person in your life'
Kristen Scott joined the roster in Season 7 of 'Basketball Wives'. She's a newbie compared to Shaunie O'Neal, Ogom 'OG' Chijindu, Evelyn Lozada, and Jennifer Williams. But, the kind of drama she has brought to the show is incomparable.
Even though Kristen was introduced as Malaysia Pargo's cousin, she received quite the importance, or else most of her family wouldn't have appeared on the show. Along with her husband Thomas Scott (married in 2012 and the couple now shares a daughter, Kenzi), father-in-law NBA legend Byron Scott and now-wife Cece Guiterrez too joined the cast list. Turned out, it was not the best idea.

Relationships were tested to a point where they were left fractured beyond repair. The beef between Kristen and Cece is not entirely known but we do know that don't see each other eye to eye. However, that didn't stop the former from trying to forge an improved and healthy relationship between her and her step-mother-in-law. Unfortunately for her, it didn't work and she ended up getting dropped out of Cece's wedding guest list.
But not before Kristen, Cece, and OG got into a bitter fight about Thomas' lineage. OG had said he was not a "real Scott", which not only left the WAGs shocked but sent the internet into a tizzy. No one knew what to believe until Kristen went on Twitter to set the record straight.
"Having to relive my husband and his FATHER'S personal business be aired like it was is disgusting!" Kristen tweeted, per a Distractify report. She continued in her explanatory posts: "Adopted children to me are even more precious [because] you get to choose to have this particular person in your life. You choose that love! Byron and Thomas chose each other. His biological father is as important! That was pure EVIL and I do not play with demons!!"
Thomas, head of Basketball Operations for BIG3 Basketball League, is actor T K Carter's son. The latter took to Instagram to confirm it while praising his kid's good looks.
With all the confusion out of the way, will Kristen be able to start a new chapter and build a strong relationship with Cece? Depends on whether she's returning to the show because last we checked, she had ditched Season 8 reunion episodes. Here's hoping there's no more trauma waiting for Kristen at the turn. Catch more of Kristen on 'Basketball Wives' Season 9 when it premieres on VH1 on February 9 at 8/7c. For more information, check your local listings.
