Mavericks: Dirk Nowitzki is still single

A Dallas Mavericks spokesperson is making it very clear that, for now, NBA star Dirk Nowitzki is not married.

Recently photos have surfaced of Nowitzki with his longtime girlfriend, Jessica Olsson, in what appeared to be a traditional African wedding ceremony in Kenya. Olsson, whose mother is from Kenya, allegedly wanted to have two separate weddings. One in Kenya for her family and another in Germany.

There has been no comment from Nowitzki yet, who has a reputation for keeping his personal life private. So if they are going to get married, the public is not likely to hear about that. He proposed to Jessica in the spring and it took more than a month for the news to leak.
