Karl Malone 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Malone married Kay Kinsey, winner of the 1988 Miss Idaho USA pageant, on December 24, 1990. 

They have four children: daughter Kadee (born November 8, 1991), daughter Kylee (born April 7, 1993), son Karl Jr. “K.J.” (born May 8, 1995), and daughter Karlee (born 1998). K.J. played football at LSU, and was invited to the 2018 NFL Combine.

In 1998, the tabloid newspaper The Globe reported that Malone had been a defendant in paternity lawsuits, filed shortly after Malone began his professional basketball career in the late 1980s.

The newspaper alleged that he was the father of three children: two by Bonita Ford, a woman approximately his age from his hometown of Summerfield, Louisiana, and one with Gloria Bell, who was 13 when she gave birth.

Malone and Ford were both 17 when twins Daryl and Cheryl Ford were born; Malone was a 20-year-old college sophomore when Bell, at age 13, gave birth to Demetress Bell. 

In the aftermath of the Globe story, Malone met the Ford twins for the first time since visiting them in the hospital after they were born. 

Malone did not meet with Bell at that time, and his attorney insisted that Malone had settled the lawsuits before any conclusive establishment of paternity and thus still did not know whether he was truly the father of any of the children.

The Tribune confirmed that the judge in the Bell lawsuit ruled Malone to be the father, not based on presented evidence, but rather because Malone did not respond to the suit.

The paper also examined court documents detailing the evidence that was to have been presented had Malone responded and a trial ensued.

One item listed was a laboratory blood test that concluded with over 99% certainty that Bell’s father was either Malone or a brother of Malone.

The paper also reported that applying the same blood sample to the Ford twins resulted in a similarly high probability of paternity by Malone. 

According to the Tribune, Malone challenged the court’s ruling with regard to Bell, claiming that the judgment holding him responsible for $125 per week in child support, plus past and future medical expenses, was excessive.

Before Malone’s appeal was adjudicated, the lawsuit was settled on confidential terms. In the case of the Ford twins, Malone was ruled to be their father when he violated a court order by refusing to reveal his assets or submit to a DNA test.

Thereafter, another out-of-court settlement was reached.

By the fall of 1998, Malone accepted his paternity of the Ford twins, and Kay Malone said publicly that the twins were members of the Malone family. 

Since that time, Karl Malone has maintained a relationship with the twins, each of whom later played college basketball at his alma mater, Louisiana Tech.

Cheryl Ford went on to a professional basketball career with the Detroit Shock of the Women’s National Basketball Association.

Bell has played as an offensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills, Philadelphia Eagles, and Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League.

In 2008, The Buffalo News reported that Bell’s first and only meeting with Malone came shortly after Bell graduated from high school. According to Bell, Malone told him then that it was “too late” for them to have a father–son relationship. 

However, in 2014, the two repaired their relationship and were in regular contact by 2018.

In 2018, Malone said about his relationship with his older children, “I didn’t handle it right; I was wrong … Father Time is the biggest thief that’s out there, and you can’t get that back.”
