Kevin Garnett is at the center of a new custody battle involving a woman seeking financial support for his alleged 2-year-old daughter.
In new legal documents that were obtained by The Blast, Necat Akman is asking the court to order custody and child support for her young daughter, claiming the Minnesota Timberwolves legend is the father.
The mother claims that Garnett is not fighting the issue of being the father, instead, she is looking for support in Los Angeles, CA.
Last week, Akman filed the custody case saying “(Garnett) and I have signed a voluntary declaration of parentage or paternity regarding the minor children.” But, she is asking for the court to make the NBA star “provide medical insurance for the minor child, contribute to add-on expenses incurred on behalf of the minor child, including but not limited to uninsured medical expenses, childcare costs relating to her employment, payment of preschool and private school tuition, and extracurricular activities.”
She also wants a college fund for their daughter.
Back in 2019, Garnett was ordered to pay $100,000 in child and spousal support to his ex-wife. Brandi Garnett was seeking $46,000 a month in child support.
During the divorce, Brandi fought the couple’s prenuptial agreement, calling it “unconscionable.” She claimed the document stated that the basketball player would get “almost everything” and she would only receive “an initial payment of $500,000 or $1 million.”
Kevin Garnett spent 14 of his 21 NBA seasons in Minnesota. He averaged 17.8 points, 10.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists in his career.
