In December 2018, Buss received correspondence from an individual who asserted to be her secret sibling named Lee.

I spoke to Jimmy Connors’ wife Patti McGuire – she was Playmate of the Year in I think 1976 or ’77 – and I asked her about the experience before I ever pursued it,” Buss said. After her father died in 2013, his 66% controlling ownership of the Lakers passed to his six children via a trust, with each child receiving an equal vote. But it was like, again, if I didn't have the confidence that my dad put in me, that was a moment where I wanted to shrink and to be nothing, that I would have, you know, gotten sick and said, 'I gotta go,'" said part of her shocking statement. I spoke to Jimmy Connors' wife Patti McGuire - she was Playmate of the Year in, I think, 1976 or 77 - I asked her about the experience before I ever pursued it," Buss said In Depth with Graham Bensinger.At age 19, she started in the family business as general manager of the Los Angeles Strings professional tennis team. As we were waiting, taking a break from the meeting and everybody's in line for the buffet for lunch during the lunch break, somebody grabs my ass. I only say that because I posed in Playboy," Buss said on the " Daddy Issues" podcast with Joe Buck and Oliver Hudson. I spoke to Jimmy Connors’ wife Patti McGuire – she was Playmate of the Year in I think 1976 or ’77 – and I asked her about the experience before I ever pursued it,” Buss tells Bensinger. He can usually be heard playing guitar, shoe-horning obscure quotes from The Simpsons into conversations, or giving dissertations to captive audiences on why Iron Maiden is the greatest band of all time.

And I was like every other model, I had to go through the test photo shoot and all that kind of stuff. When I posed, I was 32 years old, it wasn't like I was making a mistake that I didn't know what I was getting myself into," she said on the Daddy Issues podcast in 2020. And she said, 'It's a great experience but always be prepared wherever you are, somebody's gonna approach you with the magazine to sign it when you least expect it. He is also one of the few White Sox fans out there and thinks Michael Jordan is, hands down, the GOAT.

She is forthcoming about her childhood, her many relationships, and professional life, sprinkled with lessons she has learned through the years. One would almost forget that she’s a brilliant businesswoman, except she admitted that she had a feeling the photos would be a boon to her businesses. With their series-clinching Game Six victory at the Staples Center, the Lakers, and coach Phil Jackson, put the perfect capper on a sensational 2000 NBA season. Aside from her position as owner of one of the biggest sports franchises in the world, Buss made headlines in 1995 as the-then 32-year-old made the decision to model nude for Playboy. After her father died in 2013, Buss assumed his role as governor of the Lakers as well as its team representative at NBA Board of Governors meetings.

Born in Santa Monica, California, [1] Buss was the third of four children to Joann and Jerry Buss, and one of two daughters; she grew up with older brothers Johnny and Jim and younger sister Janie. In the interview, Buss talked about how she spoke to former Playmate of the Year Patti McGuire, the wife of pro tennis player Jimmy Connors.According to Buss, the team did not go through a public interview process to hire a GM because she did not want to tip off her brother, as the siblings were in a legal battle over control of the team. But what she felt was lacking was the empowerment that would come with posing for Playboy, a publication that she’d admired since she was a young woman.

Lakers owner Jeanie Buss said young professionals who dream of one day being in her position shouldn't necessarily follow her career path. Buss has spoken about the reasons behind participating in the magazine as she said it was her own "personal goal". Lee expressed a desire to connect with not only Buss but also her mother and the rest of the siblings, which they arranged.
