Sonya Curry -- Steph and Seth Curry's mom -- says estranged husband Dell Curry cheated on her with different women while married ... and she had no choice but to divorce the ex-NBA star.
But, Dell's telling a different story ... saying Sonya cheated during the relationship.
TMZ Sports broke the news ... 55-year-old Sonya filed for divorce on June 14 in North Carolina, citing Dell's "marital misconduct."
Dell responded with a court filing of his own, accusing Sonya of "acts of illicit sexual misconduct" prior to their separation, and then lying about the alleged incidents.
He also says she is now living with another man ... claiming that should prevent her from collecting alimony.
But, now Sonya is firing back ... admitting she's in a dating relationship with another man, but saying it didn't start until months after she and Dell agreed to legally separate.
She also notes she is NOT living with the man ... but rather alone because Dell refused to allow her to stay in their home.
And, then she dropped the hammer ... saying it was actually Dell who was unfaithful, hooking up with different women while married.
To make matters worse, Sonya says Dell's infidelity was known to family and close friends ... saying it was basically an open secret.
Sonya claims she didn't initially expose the lurid details "in one final act of trying to protect [Dell] and family from possible public exposure and scrutiny."
Sonya says once Dell publicly accused her of being unfaithful "she was left with no choice" but to fire back in defense of herself.
The couple married in 1988. Mrs. Curry claims the couple separated in March 2020.
