Comedian Jay Mohr & Jeanie Buss, President Of L.A. Lakers, Get Engaged
Just two years after the Los Angeles Lakers won the NBA title, Jeanie Buss and Jay Mohr, a comedian and actor, are engaged.
Buss and Mohr have been together since 2017. Last fall, Buss posted about her relationship to Twitter.
The Lakers president was previously married to Steve Timmons, a volleyball player. She was also engaged to former Lakers coach Phil Jackson before announcing the pair’s split in 2016.
Buss and Jackson sent out the joint statement, “With mutual love and respect, we have decided to end our engagement. With the nature of our professional obligations and the geographic distance between us, sustaining the relationship has been difficult. We have shared many wonderful moments through the years, and we expect to remain supportive of each other in the future.”
In addition to her executive duties with the Lakers, she executive produced Hulu’s docuseries Legacy: The True Story of the L.A. Lakers, which was released in August. She also is an owner of Women of Wrestling, an all-female wrestling league.
In the HBO scripted series, Winning Time, actress Hadley Robinson plays Buss. The series focuses on the Lakers’ success in the 1980s when Jeanie’s father, Jerry Buss, owned the team.
