Who is Aaron Gordon’s ex-girlfriend Izabela Guedes and did she feature in Playboy? All you need to know

Aaron Gordon is in the midst of the best season of his nine-year career. Off the court, the Denver Nuggets forward has reportedly ended his relationship with Izabela Guedes. The couple began dating in March 2020 before reportedly calling things off in August 2021.

Guedes is a Brazilian model who gained notoriety in 2021 when Playboy announced that she would be the first-ever seasonal Playmate. She opened up on the historic opportunity in an exclusive with Fox News, stating:

‘; }); pollOptions.innerHTML = pollOptionsDom; pollCount.innerHTML = totalVotes + ‘ votes’; if (totalVotes > 10) { pollCount.classList.remove(“hidden”); } } function trackBetsTodayPollImpression() { var intersectionObserverForArticlePoll = new IntersectionObserver( function(entries) { entries.forEach(function(entry) { var pollId = entry.target.getAttribute(“data-poll-id”); if (POLLS_BY_ID[pollId][‘impression_tracked’]) return; if (!entry.target || !entry.isIntersecting || entry.intersectionRatio < 0.5) return; setTimeout(function() { if (isInViewport(entry.target)) { POLLS_BY_ID[pollId][‘impression_tracked’] = true; var isDesktop = “1”; var gaPayload = { “question” : POLLS_BY_ID[pollId][‘question’], “category”: “Basketball”, “page_url”: window.location.href, “option1”: POLLS_BY_ID[pollId][‘option1’], “option2”: POLLS_BY_ID[pollId][‘option2’], } if (isDesktop) { gaPayload[“device”] = “Desktop”; } else { gaPayload[“device”] = “Mobile”; } gtag(“event”, “BETS_TODAY_POLL_IMPRESSION”, gaPayload); intersectionObserverForArticlePoll.unobserve(entry.target); } }, 1000); }); }, { threshold: 0.5 } ); var pollElements = document.querySelectorAll(‘.bets-today-poll’); pollElements.forEach(function(pollElement) { var isAnswered = pollElement.querySelector(“.poll-option-answered”); if (!isAnswered) { intersectionObserverForArticlePoll.observe(pollElement); } }) } return { answerPollX: answerPollX, }; }();

Guedes shared how the honor differentiated from Playboy’s Playmate of the Month and Playmate of the Year honors, adding:

It is unclear why Aaron Gordon and Izabela Guedes decided to call things off. Prior to dating the fourth overall pick of the 2014 NBA Draft, Guedes reportedly dated rapper Wiz Khalifa and former MLB star Matt Kemp.
