His Ex-Wife Egle Andreikaite Is A Famous Ballet Dancer 

Mindaugas Kuzminskas’ former wife, Egle Andreikaite, is a Lithuanian ballet dancer, who has trained professionally for 14 years. Egle graduated from Vilnius University with a Lithuanian philology and Spanish language degree. 

She later traveled to New York, where she became a professional ballet dancer for BalletNext. Egle was previously part of the Lietuvos Rytas Dance Team and later Red Foxes. 

In 2017, as part of the Red Foxes Dance Team, Egle performed at the EuroBasket Championship. In the same competition, Mindaugas was part of the Lithuanian National Team.

The former husband-wife duo collided during the competition in the quarterfinal stage when Lithuania met Greece. But unfortunately, Greece knocked out Lithuania from the competition, ending Mindaugas and Lithuania’s journey in the EuroBasket. 

It was in the same competition in 2011, when the former couple first crossed paths. At the time, Egle was with the dance team, Lietuvos ryto.

Along with being a ballet dancer, Egle is also an entrepreneur. The former better half of the basketball player established the swimwear brand Agla Pine in 2019 and has since been running it successfully. 

On the company’s website, it’s been mentioned that the idea for the company started in New York City through its lively atmosphere and inspiring people. The designs are said to be influenced by their love for the sun, ocean, and sexy tan lines. 

Along with selling bikinis, the company also sells the Lounge Sets Collection, with the highest pricing being €119. It also has a Terry Dress in its stock, a short-sleeved ruched waist dress selling for €112.

The couple’s son, Jonas, was born on January 4, 2022, with Mindaugas sharing a sweet photo informing his fans about the birth of his child. He captioned the post, “It is hard to describe with words how such a small person can take up such a big part of his heart at once.”

He further added that the mom and the baby were doing well. The former Knicks player has shared limited posts about his relationship. 

His ex-wife, Egle, has also moved on in her life with her husband. On Instagram, Egle has shared several pictures with her husband, with whom she shares two furry pets. 

Mindaugas Kuzminskas And Egle Andreikaite Ugly Divorce 

In October 2018, Mindaugas took to his Instagram handle to announce he and Egle were heading for divorce. Kuzminskas started the post by writing the rumors about their separation were true and that they had conflicted interests. 

The basketball player stated he wanted family and children, but Egle wasn’t on the same page. Egle wasn’t happy with the narrative Mindaugas built around their divorce, so she gave an open interview to the LNK show, KK2.

In the interview, Egle said she had been thrown out of the house, and he had changed the alarm code to their home. She told the basketballer wanted to present himself in a positive light.

During the conversation, Egle also hinted the basketball player was cheating on her with another woman. Egle said the woman had entered their lives before their wedding, and Mindaugas behaved strangely during their honeymoon in Bali. 

Since those accusations, the former couple has moved on swiftly in their respective lives and are no longer in communication.
