When did Rick Pitino’s wife Joanne Minardi first know of Pitino’s alleged one night affair with Karen Cunagin Sypher? Rick Pitino and wife Joanne Minardi have married been 33 years.

The date of the encounter was allegedly August 1, 2003. Karen was single. She was not Mrs. Cunagin Sypher at the time; she hadn’t ever met Tim Sypher by that point.

Pitino according to press recently told police Sypher and him had a one night affair following a meal at Louisville restaurant Porcini?

But when did Rick Pitinio tell his wife.

According to police, Pitino in 2003 reportedly quietly arranged to meet Karen at Tim Sypher’s condo, pay her $3000 for an abortion. In the months that would follow, Tim Sypher would marry Karen, who would reportedly often be alongside Pitino at Louisville functions.

When the first limited details of a pending extortion case against Karen hit in spring 2009, Pitino had previously issued the following statement about his family:

My family and I were recently threatened as part of a criminal scheme to extort money. Upon receiving these threats, we reported this extortion attempt to the FBI. While I did not want to make this matter public, I recently learned that the individual behind this extortion attempt has already gone to the media with false, defamatory and outrageous allegations in an attempt to pressure me to cave in to this scheme.

I want to make it clear that I intend to vigorously defend my reputation and the character of my family against any criminal scheme to extort money. I am hopeful that the media and public will recognize the slanderous nature of this direct and malicious attack.

Today Pitino has five children, Karen has four.
