Former NBA star Joakim Noah may not be a star on the court anymore. But he is still a star out in the streets. He stepped out yesterday with his new girlfriend - one of the most famous supermodels in the world - Lais Ribiero.
Victoria's Secret supermodel Lais Ribeiro cozied up to her man after a night at 1OAK. The model and the basketball player try to stay dry and they share some sweet PDA.
The two made a really cute couple. Lais is almost 6 feet tall and her man Joakim is almost 7 feet.
On July 8, 2016, Noah signed a four-year, $72 million contract with his hometown team, the New York Knicks.
In January 2018, Noah went into exile from the Knicks after having a heated verbal altercation with the coach. Noah appeared in just seven games during the 2017–18 season, averaging 5.7 minutes off the bench. After two underwhelming seasons, many fans and analysts have labeled Noah's contract as the worst contract in the NBA.
Noah holds citizenship with the United States, France, and Sweden.
On May 25, 2008, he was arrested for having an open container of alcohol and misdemeanor possession of marijuana in Gainesville, Florida. A few hours later, Noah was also cited for driving with a suspended license and not wearing a seat belt. He was sentenced to six months probation, a $200 fine for the marijuana and open container charges, and a $206 traffic fine.
In 2010, with his mother, an artist, Noah founded the Noah's Arc Foundation to help engage children with positive self-expression through arts and sports. The foundation has a special focus on at-risk youth in Chicago.
