Referee Scott Foster Wife: Who Is He Married To? Kids

This article was last updated by on

Referee Scott Foster wife, Paula Foster, certainly has done the right thing by staying out of social media. The couple is said to be parents to three kids, who also keep themselves out of the mess.

The highlight of the game between the Suns and the Warriors was the fight between Chris Paul and Scott Foster. The two got into a heated exchange, which led to Foster ejecting Paul.

But this isn’t the first time the NBA referee and the 38-year-old player have shared some words. Paul’s team is 3-17 in playoff duels refereed by Foster.

Previously, in 2019, Paul said he had met with the league about Foster, and they had several verbal run-ins. During the post-match interview, Paul again repeated that it was personal between them. 

Many NBA fans took to social media to condemn Foster and brought out his friendship with the disgraced former NBA referee Tim Donaghy.

The NBA referee Scott Foster’s wife, Paula Foster, has kept herself out of the public limelight. And looking at the recent comments, it was probably the right choice.

Many Golden State fans and fans from other NBA franchises took to their Twitter account to troll the NBA referee Scott Foster. They did so after Foster had another heated exchange with Chris Paul. 

With just a few seconds remaining in the first half, Scott Foster sent Chris Paul to the showers. While leaving the court, Paul also called Foster a “b-tch.” 

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also disapproved of Foster’s action. A video clip of Kerr exchanging words with Foster also went viral on Twitter, and various meme pages used it to their advantage.

One of the meme pages, The NBA Centel, captioned the video, “It was Cliff Paul who slept with your wife, not Chris. Leave him out of this.”

For those who don’t know, Cliff Paul is the twin brother of Chris Paul. Not a real one but a character from the advertisement he did for State Farm in 2012.

After this post, several NBA fans took to Twitter to write not-so-good stuff about Mrs Foster. Another Twitter user wrote, “Scott Foster wife is definitely at home cheating on him.”

Many might’ve written this in the heat of the moment. But family members of referees or players shouldn’t be brought up because of their spouse’s actions. One can only imagine what would be the comments if Mrs. Foster’s social media handle was public. 

Referee Scott Foster Kids

Referee Scott Foster has tried his best to keep his family out of the spotlight. However, it is believed that the referee has three kids.

His eldest son happens to be Jake Foster, the godson of the former disgraced NBA official Tim Donaghy. Many might know that Scott and Tim share a close friendship and their friendship was magnified after Tim Donaghy’s betting scandal in 2007.

The two exchanged 304 phone calls between December 2006 and April 2007, the same time Donaghy admitted he shared inside information between two known gamblers. 

But Foster has always remained firm that he had no idea about those bets. The FBI also cleared him as no evidence pointed toward Foster committing illegal activities.

Though we aren’t sure, there is a chance the former Christopher Newport University women’s basketball player, Jessica Foster, could be Scott Foster’s only daughter. 

Jessica played three years of collegiate basketball at Christopher and previously played high school basketball at Glenelg. At Glenelg, Jessica earned All-County honors all four years. 

It is believed that Jessica currently works for Capital One as a senior associate of MRP. In her college bio, it has been mentioned her dad’s name is Scott Foster, and she has two brothers, one named Jake and the other named Kyle Foster.
