Is Kim Mulkey In a Relationship?

As much as the public knows, the college basketball coach is not dating anyone at the moment.

She also confirmed this information in an interview in 2022. However, it might also be that she has subsequently started dating someone but decided to completely keep the relationship out of the limelight. So, if in any way she currently has a man in her life, then the media and the general public completely have no hint or idea of it.

Kim Mulkey Was Once Married

Kim Mulkey was once a married woman but is now divorced. She and her ex-husband, Randy Robertson, met in 1987 and married the same year.

Three years into their marriage, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Makenzie Fuller and in 1994, they gave birth to their second child, a son Kramer Robertson. Makenzie and Kramer are now 34 and 30 years old respectively.

Kim admitted that parenthood initially got her overwhelmed but she tried her best to strike a balance between motherhood and her career, and subsequently adapted to the responsibilities.

Meanwhile, Mulkey’s ex-husband, Randy Robertson, is best known for being the Bulldogs’ starting quarterback from 1974 to 1975. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Louisiana Tech University. He also holds a Master’s degree in Public Relations and Advertising from The University of Alabama.

Randy Robertson is a top member of boards of the Texas Sports Hall of Fame, the Waco Chamber of Commerce, and the AAF Waco.

Kim and Her Husband Divorced in 2006

The couple was perceived to be living happily together and their marriage sailing smoothly but that was until late 2005 when Kim found out they had gradually fallen miles apart. In January 2006, her husband of 19 years opened up that he was going to be moving out of their home. According to Kim, this gave her the biggest shock and shattered her life.

In light of this and in a bid to save their marriage, they together reached out to a marriage counselor in Dallas. But sadly, nothing still worked and they ultimately divorced in late 2006 and went their separate ways. As long as she was married to Robertson, Kim was known as Kim Mulkey-Robertson, she dropped Robertson following their divorce.

Speaking to The Advocate in 2020, Kim Mulkey revealed that she was fully ready to give up anything, including her coaching career and all her professional endeavors just to ensure her marriage with Randy Robertson worked, but unfortunately, things clearly weren’t working out. So, she had no further option than to give up.

To date, neither Randy nor Kim revealed what exactly led to their divorce. “The divorce is the most devastating thing to happen in my life”, Mulkey told The Dallas Morning News in March 2012. According to her, the man with whom she shares two children and vowed to spend the rest of her life with suddenly turned into a stranger.

Is Kim Mulkey Engaged?

Kim Mulkey is currently not engaged to anyone. However, this has not prevented questions and rumors about her being engaged. Rumors about the former player being in a relationship and engaged have circulated for many years now. It started when a source reported that she got engaged to a mystery man.

While the news was still trying to be verified, another source reported that it was her ex-husband, Randy Robertson, that she got engaged to, but there is no truth in this. Those who believe and rumor that she is in a relationship and engaged might have come to that conclusion given that it has been many years ago she and her ex-husband got divorced, and since then she has not given a hint about her love life.

Also, considering her flourishing career, it is not hard to see the reason many conclude that she certainly would be in a relationship. However, she is not, after all. In an interview she granted sometime in 2022, Mulkey herself addressed the rumors and confirmed that she is single. In fact, she categorically said that ever since her divorce, she has not dated any man not to talk of getting engaged.

She did not stop there though, but went further to explain that she has had several opportunities of being in a relationship but her focus has always been on her two children, as she does not want any man to distract her from them. Furthermore, Kim maintained that she is not lonely, but completely happy and content.

The mother of two went on to add that she is wholly devoted to her career and children. “I don’t need a man to support me. Relationships are work”, she concluded.
