Does Jeremy Lin Have A Wife?

To this present moment, Jeremy Lin seems some distance away from any relationship gossips. However, it was not the case some six years earlier.

Back in 2013, a YouTube video featuring a woman named Kristina Wong shocked the world. In that video, Kristina claimed that she just got married to NBA star Jeremy Lin. The viral video later caught Jeremy by surprise who entirely denied any involvement with the featured girl. Fortunately, the shocking revelation turned out to be just a hoax as Kristina was a die-hard fan of the new Raptors’ signing.
