Basketball star's wife storms out of TV interview after he boasts of bedding 341 women - and admitting that 50 were DURING their marriage

Finding out that your partner has cheated on you is a soul-crushing, heart-breaking, world-shattering moment for any individual.
It's an act of pain and betrayal no one would wish on their worst enemy.
Finding out that your partner has cheated on you on television, surrounded by cameras, with millions of viewers watching at home, is quite simply unimaginable.
This is the shockingly sad scenario one woman found herself in as she and her husband appeared on American reality show Iyanla: Fix My Life on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
Brandi Maxiell married retired basketball player Jason Maxiell in 2010 after 17 years together.
The pair, both 35, were childhood sweethearts and have a six-year-old son together.
They appeared on the show in an effort to save their marriage, which had been rocked by Brandi's opinion that her husband has a "drinking problem", his lying and the fact that he had cheated on her.
At the start of the episode, Brandi is under the impression that Jason has had eight affairs during their eight year marriage
However she soon discovers this isn't the case.
The show's host, life coach Iyanla Vanzant asks Jason: "Does she know how many women you've slept with?"
He says she doesn't, before revealing that the number of women he's had sex with during their marriage is actually more than 50.
Hurt, Brandi calls the affairs "disgusting" before breaking down in tears and leaving the room.
Iyanla chases after her, but Jason remains in his seat the entire time.
In a separate interview for the show, Jason, who used to play for the Detroit Pistons, then reveals that during his life, he's slept with a shocking total of 341 women.
When asked how he could sleep with so many women, he explained: "At the time it was easy to do, to be pleasured that way. And I don't know if I was looking for something else in it or trying to receive something else through it but I did do it."
He added that he isn't a sex addict and that the sexual interactions were merely "two to three hours of being away", but he wasn't sure what it was he was trying to get away from.  .
Iyanla tells him that her mantra in life is that: "A man is who is mother makes him to be because she controls the heart, now he'll demonstrate what his father did, but who he be that comes from his mother."
Brandi was also interviewed separately for the show, during which time she revealed that their son had gotten caught up in their relationship issues.
While the couple's episode only aired on TV in America this month, filming for the show actually took place a year ago.
It is unclear whether the pair are still married today, as Brandi is sometimes pictured on Instagram wearing her wedding ring.
However in a statement for The Shade Room she proclaimed that her focus now is not on being a good wife, but being "the best mother" she can be.
She said: “I would like to say I’m more frustrated with him blurting out a number to the world without no regard for my feelings. Eight put a damper on our relationship and I was willing to work on it. Over 50 tore it down!
“My focus is and has been since we went on this show a year ago, to shift my ENTIRE life from being a great wife and mother into being the best mother and person I can be!
"I’m aware that my son will someday come across this video and witness what the man of his life has done to his mother and how I stood by and basically did nothing. Therefore, I have to prepare myself for that conversation with him ‘without lies’ but with compassion for my son. I’m going to use very detail of my upbringing, my illness, my marriage, my life good or bad, to raise my child to learn how to first love and respect God, himself, women & all of God’s creations."
