Chris Carlos’ Relationship with Juliana Carlos

Juliana Carlos (reportedly 25 years old) met Chris Carlos in March 2019, when a friend set them up on a double date. They hit it off and got married on December 24, 2020.

Chris Carlos and his wife (both current and exes) have been regular attendees at Atlanta Hawks games. But unlike how he and Nicole went viral in 2017, the recent incident sparked immense trolling for Chris and Juliana.

Chris reportedly heckled LeBron James during the Lakers-Hawks game on February 1. James fired back at the businessman, which apparently didn’t sit well with Juliana.

Juliana herself got into a war of words with James before she and her husband were ejected from the venue. She would go on Instagram live to further give her piece, and would be dubbed the “Courtside Karen.”

James responded to the incident in a post-game interview. While he felt that the couple shouldn’t have been ejected, his fans have blasted the couple.

They have been accused of clout-chasing and flooded with comments like “Blocked by James” and “Rent Free.”

This isn’t the first time Chris Carlos has made his dislike for LeBron James known. In a 2017 post, he stated he doesn’t like him. Instagram users have found the old posts and left comments on it, too.
