The Real Housewives of Potomac‘s Robyn Dixon is ride or die for her longtime partner, Juan Dixon. RHOP fans are familiar with the couple’s love story. They began dating as teenagers and Robyn was by Juan’s side through his rise in the NBA. By their mid-20s, they were married and later welcomed two sons. Within a few years of their marriage, Juan’s infidelity and Robyn’s mishandling of their finances led to a divorce.
But within a year of divorcing, they were living together again. Though not in a romantic relationship and Juan being rumored to have dated other people along the way, they lived together, slept in the same bed, and raised their children with the intention of having a two-parent household for their sons.
Most were confused about the couple’s relationship or lack thereof. But for Robyn and Juan, they say it worked for them. Their relationship journey may have been unconventional, but it led to a renewed engagement. The couple is now planning their second wedding.
On Friday, Juan celebrated his 42nd birthday. As a retired NBA player, Juan is now coaching college basketball. He currently is the head coach for Coppin State’s basketball team, which he says is a dream job. But amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the program has suffered.
For his birthday gift, Robyn is asking her social media followers to donate to help support Juan’s team in the rebuilding stage.
“It would be so awesome if we could pull off a big crowdfunding effort with all of your help,” Robyn captions a video of her and Juan in part. “So, in celebration of Juan’s 42nd birthday, anything you can give would be greatly appreciated! $42 would be amazing but so would $4.20, $10.42, $1.42, $20.42, $420…you get the idea!!!”
