Andrew Wiggins has been missing a significant number of games for the Golden State Warriors recently. The franchise mentioned that it was due to personal reasons that Wiggins is out and his privacy will be respected. However, fans have taken advantage of Wiggins’ silence and have spread false information about the player.
Recently, a Twitter user took to the platform to share some information about the reason for Wiggins’ absence. The tweet mentioned, “Rumors: the reason Andrew Wiggins has taken the last month or so off from [DubNation] is because he found out his wife has been having an affair with his best friend, and all this time Wiggins has been raising their kid?? Nah man that’s just messed up bruhhh.”

This wasn’t true at all and it certainly looks like the fan spread misinformation with the intention of gaining some clicks. However, the rumor spread all over the internet and many believed it to be true. This was when Andrew Wiggins’ girlfriend, Mychal Johnson finally broke her silence.

Mychal tweeted, “The internet is really a sick place” when the rumor came to light. If that didn’t speak to lengths about her feelings, she retweeted a tweet that mentioned, “Don’t believe everything you read on social media!!!” and put the cheating rumors to bed.

She made one final tweet about these rumors which shows how big of an effect the false rumor had on Wiggins and his family. She wrote, “Literally the farthest thing from the truth. It’s sad y’all even doing this.”

The false rumor mentioned that Mychal Johnson cheated on Wiggins with his best friend. But there has been no evidence to back these claims and it certainly looks like an attempt to gain more attention. Whatever the case, the family continues to ask for privacy in Wiggins’ absence from the court and the best thing for fans to do would be to respect it.
The Warriors have not particularly dealt with his absence that well. Their road form is below par but the GSW board has mentioned that they understand Wiggins’ wishes as well. Stephen Curry even came out to show some support for his teammate recently and it shows how closely knitted the Dubs are.
