Kevin Garnett made over $300 million in his NBA career but does not want to have to pay his wife spousal support in their divorce.
As The Blast first reported, KG’s wife, Brandi Padilla, filed for divorce last July. In her filing, she asked for physical custody of the couple’s two children and for the court to award her spousal support.
KG filed his response on Monday, where he is asking for joint legal and physical custody of the kids. 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.
