Quentin Tarantino's Mom Dated Wilt Chamberlain
Quentin Tarantino's shocking revelation that his mom dated Wilt Chamberlain.
HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: With Wilt claiming to have had sex with 20,000 women, none of our moms are safe.
Tarantino recently appeared on NPR's "Fresh Air" to discuss his new movie "Django Unchained." During the interview Tarantino discussed his childhood and exposure to race and culture growing up.
"Black culture is my culture growing up,” Tarantino explained. “Yeah, it was almost like a sitcom the way we lived in the ’70s. She was in her 20s, she was hot, alright, she was a hot white girl and her best friend named Jackie was a hot black girl and her other best friend, Lillian, was a hot Mexican girl. And they lived in this swinging singles apartment with me."
Sounds like a great place to grow up. Tarantino's known for making controversial films and pushing the boundaries for violence and racial norms went even further.
“It was the ’70s. I lived with these three hip single ladies, all always going out on dates all the time, dating football players and basketball players … my mom dated Wilt Chamberlain. She was one of the thousand.”
20,000 to be exact. That's the number of women Chamberlain claims to have slept with in his biography "A View From Above." This breaks down to 1.37 women per day from the time Wilt was 15-years old until the date of publication of his biography. Well, apparently one of those days was Mrs. Tarantino. Go figure.
