Dirk Nowitzki weds Jessica Olsson in Africa

Dallas Mavericks All-Star Dirk Nowitzki was among the jocks that married over the weekend. The lowkey center married Jessica Olsson in a traditional African ceremony in Kenya, the first of two planned ceremonies honoring both the bride and the grooms heritage.

“It was beautiful, Dirk delivered the dowry in cattle wearing traditional garb,” 

The second ceremony is planned for Germany. The couple became engaged on Valentine’s day of this year.

I have to be honest and note that I was a bit skeptical about this story. So far it hasn’t been officially confirmed but there are numerous reports.

Olsson works as a manager at the Art Gallery of George Michael in Dallas, Texas.

    Um, she’s the curator of the Michael-Goss gallery….run by G.M.’d former partner Kenny Goss. She seems like a class-act. I commend him for choosing a smart, educated, independent, non-famous woman. I wish them a lifetime of happiness.
