Steve Francis continues to stack up as many L’s as possible before 2016 comes to its conclusion. The former NBA star’s divorce has been settled, but his now ex-wife, Shelby Francis, claims that he has a drug problem.
The divorce docs feature a whole gallon’s worth of tea that will confirm that conspiracy theories as to the change in Stevie Franchise’s “appearance” since his playing days.
In divorce docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Shelby Francis claimed Steve has “severe substance issues” … and asked a judge to order him to undergo random drug and alcohol testing. She also claims Steve’s been to rehab “prior to and during the divorce” … which was filed in June 2015.
The ex-NBA great has dealt with rampant speculation about possible drug use — and, in fact, vehemently denied there was an issue when he talked to us last year.
Shelby’s lawyer, Chad Pinkerton, tells us the exes reached an agreement through mediation last week. He says final docs haven’t been filed, but they’re close.
Most recently, Francis turned himself in for a burglary charge in Floriday, again.
The struggle is so real.
