Shelden Williams was a star basketball player at Duke and washed out in the NBA, but most people considered him marrying WNBA star Candace Parker as an epic win at life. Nevertheless, Williams has filed for divorce.
Also, like Mary J. Blige’s soon to be ex-husband, homie is demanding spousal support.
Williams and Parker were married back in 2008 — and have a 7-year-old daughter together.
According to the divorce docs, Williams says the two separated back in August and are living apart. Now, he wants to officially end their 7 year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. He’s asking for joint custody of their kid.
But get this … Williams — who reportedly made more than $12 MILLION during his NBA career — is demanding spousal support from Parker. He also wants her to pay his attorneys fees.
FYI, Parker reportedly makes in the low 6-figures with the L.A. Sparks — but crushes it overseas, where reports say she hauls in more than $1 MILLION per year. She also has major endorsements including a deal with Adidas.
Bruh, what did he do with that $12M?
Let us leave this photo (and another on the flip) of Candace Parker in ESPN Magazine‘s Body Issue below as you ponder what these irreconcilable differences actually are.
