Love life and marriage with Jason Kidd
Porschla and Jason prefer to keep the details of their love life to themselves, and haven’t shared a lot concerning their marriage with their fans.
They met in either 2008 or 2009, apparently introduced by a friend at his party; the two were in a relationship for around three years prior to exchanging vows on 10 September 2011, in a private ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members. Porschla has given birth to their three children.
She hasn’t spoken of any other men whom she had perhaps been with prior to meeting Jason, while it’s known that Jason was previously married to the American actress and journalist Joumana Marie Kidd (nee Samaha).
The two exchanged vows in 1997, but Jason was arrested in January 2001 on charges of domestic abuse, after he had physically assaulted Joumana; he then had to attend anger management classes for half a year. Jason filed for divorce on 9 January 2007, claiming that Joumana was jealous and paranoid, and that she often threatened to tell the police that he was abusing her again, which he denied. They have three children together.
As of December 2021, Porschla is married to Jason Kidd, and they have three children.

Who is Jason Kidd?
Jason Frederick Kidd was born in San Francisco, California USA, on 23 March 1973 – his zodiac sign is Aries, and he holds American nationality. He’s currently coaching the Dallas Mavericks who are competing in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Jason was raised in San Francisco alongside his siblings Kim and Denise, by their Irish-American mother Anne, and their African-American father Steve.
He studied at East Oakland Youth Development Center before moving on to St. Joseph Notre Dame High School, at which he played basketball for the school’s team Pilots under the coach Frank LaPort; Jason was named California Player of the Year twice during that time. Upon matriculating in 1991, he was offered scholarships from many prestigious universities, and Jason chose the University of California, Berkeley; this came as a shock to many people, as he could’ve attended better ranked universities. He quit in 1994, and made himself eligible for the NBA draft.
Jason was picked by the Dallas Mavericks, and played with them for two years, before he was traded to the Phoenix Suns for the 1996-1997 season.
He stayed with them for the following five years, until traded to the New Jersey Nets on 28 June 2001; Jason returned to the Dallas Mavericks on 13 February 2008, and won the NBA Championship with them on 12 June 2011.
He signed a contract with the New York Knicks on 12 July 2012, before retiring on 3 June 2013.
He then turned to coaching, and became the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets on 12 June 2013. Between 1 July 2014 and 2018, Jason coached the Milwaukee Bucks, and between 31 July 2019 and 28 June 2021, he was an assistant coach of the Los Angeles Lakers, then became the head coach of the Dallas Mavericks.
It’s believed by some that Jason is a bit of an alcoholic, as on 15 July 2012, he hit a telephone pole with his car; the police found him in the car in the woods, and it was revealed that he was intoxicated.
