The late Jerry Buss had a strong reputation for being a “ladies man.” Going way back to the showtime Lakers all the way up to the days of his death, Buss always had a penchant for the younger gals. One of those younger women apparently had a pretty serious relationship with the former Lakers owner.
Delia Cortez, reportedly is in her late 20s and was studying to be a vet at the time she and Buss started dating. She and Buss reportedly had an “intimate relationship.” He supposedly amended his will last year to include Cortez. Cortez’s Facebook profile indicates that she studied at Chaminade University of Honolulu and went to high school in Honolulu. She changed her profile picture to one of her with Buss on Feb. 18, the day he died.
He left her a 2009 Bentley and a condo in Hawaii.
