Joel Embiid Girlfriend: Sixers Star Dating Model Anne De Paula?

Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid cares about basketball, trash talking and his push to win an NBA Most Valuable Player award. Apparently, he may also now have a new girlfriend he’ll need to carve some time away from the training facilities for. Although the Sixers big man has maintained that basketball is where his core focus is, recently a new love interest came to light.
During an exclusive GQ cover story from Clay Skipper, Embiid spoke on a wide range of things, one of which involved doing “background checks” on potential girlfriends. This resulted in a few question marks about the Sixers star’s dating life as a whole and eventually led us to find his apparent new girlfriend, 23-year-old Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Anne De Paula.
Let’s take a look at a few things which jump out linking the two, beginning with comments from the Sixers owner on social media.

One photo won’t necessarily prove anything to be true, but it’s at least a start. Even going beyond that, the relationship between Embiid and De Paula took center stage in China. When the 76ers went overseas this preseason to take part in the NBA China Games, many looked past a moment which showed the model arriving with 7-footer.
