Ex-NBA PF Shelden Williams Divorcing Candace Parker & Wants Her to Pay Him Spousal Support
Less than a month ago, Candace Parker recorded 28 points and 12 rebounds and was named the most valuable player of the finals en route to her first WNBA title. Now, Parker is dealing with a personal issue at home.
Former NBA player Shelden Williams has filed for divorce from Candace Parker and is requesting that she pay him spousal support, according to TMZ.
“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.”
Parker and Williams have been married since 2008 and have two kids together.
