Zion Williamson is an American basketball player who gained a lot of fame after he was selected by the New Orleans Pelicans back in the 2019 NBA draft. This 20 years old athlete is from North Carolina.
Being a star athlete comes with responsibility and commitment towards the game. So, it might cause hindrances in the player’s love life. Here is everything we know about Zion Williamson including his relationship and about his girlfriend, Tiana White.
Who is Zion Williamson?
Zion is a teenage star athlete, an NBA rookie who plays the power forward position. He was born on 6th July 2000, in Salisbury, North Carolina. His full name is Zion Lateef Williamson. His nickname is Zanos.
Zion has a towering height of 6 ft. 6 inches tall. He is in the New Orleans Pelicans team.
Both his parents were also college athletes. His dad, Lateef Williamson used to play as a football defensive lineman, and his mother, Sharonda Sampson was a sprinter in college. So he has been lucky with the genes also.
Zion’s parents got divorced when he was five years old. His mother was later married to another athlete, a basketball player Lee Anderson. He relocated with his family to Florence, South Carolina after the death of his grandmother.

Furthermore, they confirmed their relationship indirectly through Instagram live. In that video, Tiana asked Zion if he has a girlfriend or not and Zion responded by smiling and asking a rhetorical question saying “Do I?”
As of now, Zion and Tiana do not follow each other on social media platforms. After getting drafted for New Orleans Pelicans, he was relocated to a different location. He went to Duke University in Durham to forward his career. Meanwhile, Tiana had yet to complete her high school. She is currently in South Carolina.
It must have been hard to maintain a long-distance relationship for Zion while being focused on game and practice all day. So, it looks like they have called it quits and parted ways because of the long distance.
Tiana was also getting unexpected attention because of Zion’s rising fame, maybe that’s why he has deleted all his photos with Tiana from his Instagram account.
Tiana White Age and Bio Facts
Tiana White is a South Carolina native. She is about 19 years old. According to her Instagram account, Tiana is attending Wofford College which is in Spartanburg. Much like Zion, Tiana was also an athlete as well as a cheerleader.
She was a part of the volleyball team in high school. She used to participate in various field events. Tiana’s social media account is private so there is not much information about her family or her current dating life. Tiana holds an American nationality and she belongs to the African-American ethnicity.
Who is Zion Williamson dating in 2020?
Zion is not seen with anyone after things have gone south with Tiana. Currently, it is assumed that he is single. There are no reports of him having a new girlfriend or getting married as of July 2020.
The NBA stars usually keep their dating life public so I guess he is not dating someone secretly and hiding his girlfriend. However, he was linked with a huge Disney star, Peyton List based on his Instagram photo with her.
It is common for a big star like Zion to have a rumor about being linked with a celebrity. But neither of these stars said anything about the rumors so it might not be true after all.
