Late last week, former NBA star, Amar’e Stoudemire, filed for divorce from his wife of nearly six years. The filing came almost two years after Stoudemire’s love child was exposed in a legal battle over paternity and child support, as he described his marriage to Alexis Welch as “irretrievably broken.”
Now, as a result, Stoudemire is looking to make sure the details of his divorce are in line with the prenuptial agreement Welch signed prior to their union.
In divorce documents obtained by The Blast, Stoudemire referenced the former couple’s prenup, which covered issues of property and child support, as he asked a judge to approve the agreement to finalize the divorce. But since the initial prenup did not mention child support and a parenting plan, Stoudemire had to detail the terms of his child support agreement with the mother of his love child to determine the terms for his four minor children with Welch.
According to the publication, Stoudemire revealed he pays $4,333 a month in support for his daughter, Zoe Renee Lovett, but said it will go up to $5,833 in July.
In the meantime, Welch has yet to respond to Stoudemire’s petition.
