Kawhi Leonard, a superstar on the basketball court, is more on the simpler side off it. He is public about very few things in his life. He likes to keep his personal life to himself and has found a partner who is similarly secretive.

In an era where superstars around the world boast about their partners, especially on social media platforms, Leonard seeks to be a little different. He is rarely active on social media platforms. In fact, both Kawhi and his girlfriend Kishele Shipley share very little on public platforms, which differentiates them from other NBA couples.

Who is Kishele Shipley?

Kishele took birth in San Diego, California on April 10, 1989. She is the second daughter of the Shipley couple – Kenneth and Cathy Marie. According to a source, she has two siblings – an older sister, Kenisha, and a younger sister, Kasandra.

Shipley, like Leonard, is an alumnus of San Diego State University. The couple allegedly met during their time at the university itself. Kishele graduated with a degree in public administration while Kawhi went on to live his NBA dreams.

As mentioned earlier, both Shipley and Leonard like to keep a low profile, and hence the world knows very little about the couple. Although some rumors suggest they got married in 2014, there is no official confirmation about the same. Many others believe they tie the knots soon, although there is nothing concrete about it.
