Klay Thompson denies rumors he’s dating Instagram model Abigail Ratchford

Klay Thompson did his best during a recent radio interview to dispel the rumor that he’s dating Instagram model Abigail Ratchford. Then again, the case can be made the Golden State Warriors star was sidestepping questions about the rumored romance more than anything.

Speculation has increased in recent months that Thompson and Ratchford may be an item. But Thompson, while making an appearance Tuesday on San Francisco’s 95.7 The Game, denied that’s the case.

The topic was cleverly brought up by the show’s host, Damon Bruce, by mentioning Thompson’s dog, Rocco. The beloved canine, featured in some social media dispatches from Ratchford, played a large role in originally inspiring the dating rumors.

Via The Mercury News:

“He’s great. Living the life,” Thompson said. “About to take him to the park later — get some sun, have some fun.”

Apparently pointing to the aforementioned rumor, Bruce asked, “Any pin-up models we should know about?”

“With Rocco?” Thompson’s quipped in reply. “Oh, no no no no no. (I’m) just being good.”

Bruce noted how fast he shut the idea down.

“Yeah, I’m trying to find a wholesome lady out there,” Thompson said. “That’d be nice.”

Given that Ratchford is known for her risque Instagram account, Thompson’s allusion to a “wholesome lady” could be inferred as a shot at Ratchford. Whether that’s true or not — not to mention whether Thompson and Ratchford are or ever were dating in the first place — still isn’t quite clear.
