Meet Molly Qerim, the new girlfriend of former NBA star turned ESPN analyst Jalen Rose. We are not sure how Jalen and Molly first met or when they started dating, but we do know Jalen has officially gone public with their relationship after posting photos of them together on his social media accounts and referring to Molly as his wifey. Since Molly and Jalen both work for ESPN, we guess it is safe to assume they first met on the job.
Jalen posted the photo below of the two on Twitter with the caption “I’d hate me too!”
