Badger’s stunning girlfriend, Sydni Paige Russell, is originally from Texas. She went to Hebron High School in Carrolton and is currently enrolled at Louisiana State University where she will graduate in 2015. On March 28, 2012, Sydni was one of the recipients of the Black Scholars Awards Program by the LSU Black Faculty and Staff Caucus.
Apart from being a full-time student, Russell was also a cheerleader for the New Orleans Hornets. In 2012, she spent the entire year cheering for the basketball team but then due to conflict in her studies it was indicated that she might not be coming back after the season ended.
