Kysre Gondrezick’s sister, Kalabrya Gondrezick, is a licensed medical esthetician in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Kalabrya is two years older than Kysre, and the two sisters also have a younger brother.
Coming from a basketball family, it’s not a shocker that the two girls pursued basketball during their collegiate years.
Kysre continued her basketball career even after college, while Kalabrya decided to give up on the athletic dream during her first year.
But since then, Kalabrya has found success as an esthetician and gained a sizable following on social media.
The older sister of Kysre was married to NFL player Dwayne Haskins, but their relationship abruptly ended after Dwayne died in a car accident in 2022.
The former Indiana Fever player, Kysre, has been a free agent for over a year. Fever waived her in January 2022 and by Chicago Sky in May. In recent months, she has grabbed the attention for being the girlfriend of Houston Rockets player Kevin Porter Jr.

But at Michigan, she only played in her freshman year, that too six games. In 2019, she graduated with a degree in interdisciplinary studies and has since focused on becoming an esthetician.
Right after graduation, Kalabrya joined National Laser Institute and received her cosmetic laser and micro-needling certificate. That same year, she joined Douglas J Aveda Institute and worked on her Esthetician license.
