Kevin Garnett has always been a man who will fight back when faced with adversity.
The former NBA legend hit a crossroads in his marriage in 2018, when his wife, Brandi Padilla, filed for divorce in July and would then ask for physical custody of the couple’s two children and for the court to award her spousal support.
Garnett finally responded to the request earlier this week, when he asked the court for joint legal and physical custody of the kids, according to The Blast.
He is also asking the court to terminate spousal support for Brandi, citing a prenup the couple signed a month before the marriage.
The couple did agree on the date of separation — they both listed “TBD” — and the reason for the split, irreconcilable differences.
Padilla was a longtime girlfriend of Garnett, and the two tied the knot in July 2004 during a private ceremony in California. KG skipped competing in the Athens Olympic Games because of the wedding.
Garnett made upwards of $300 million during his entire career. You would think a prenup would be an open and shut type of case, but we’ve seen over the years that wives have not only contested it, but got it thrown out and still received money as if the prenup never existed.
