Candace Parker Shelden Williams

Women who demand equality should watch what you ask for: you just might get it. Ask WNBA star Candace Parker, who was forced to fork over $400,000 to her retired NBA ex-husband in a divorce settlement.

Parker and her ex-husband Shelden Williams, a former top NBA draft pick, agreed to a lump sum divorce settlement, according to court docs obtained by TMZ Sports.



Candace married Williams back in 2008, two years after he was selected 5th overall in the 2006 NBA Draft.

Williams earned over $12 million during his 6-year career, but Parker earned more during her stint in the WNBA. So she agreed to pay Williams $400,000 in one tidy lump sum in exchange for not paying ongoing spousal support.

She can afford it. The ex-couple split the profit from the sale of their Encino, CA home which recently sold for $3.75 million.

They also agreed to co-parent their 8-year-old daughter, and they will split the cost of her education and upbringing.

That sounds like an amicable divorce between two friends.

    Amicable my a$$. ?

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    Split the cost of her education and up bringing? Nah, he’s gonna be using Candace’s 400K for that.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    Someone in these comments bitter.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    you know that brother’s name in her house is “Wit his ugly ass”

  • Ryan

    That dude hasn’t played in years – “splitting costs.” Yeah, maybe after that $400k clears ?

  • Kim’s Original Face

    I’d rather pay that lump sum then have to continuously pay his butt!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Shelden has always looked like he was one chromosome away from Downs Sinder. She must have really loved his ass.

    Money can’t buy looks that’s fur sure ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    He has a degree from Duke. I’m sure he has a very nice job somewhere these days

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Hopefully they can be civil & cordial with each other for the sake of the child. Nothing worse than divorced parents who let their bitterness spill over into their kids’ lives and negatively affect them.

  • Yardgirl

    Word!!

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Chile…

  • Ozad

    Damn WNBA players making money like that….who knew

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    As an ex-NBA player he has immediate credentials to get into coaching. Even a basic assistant coaching job can probably make him 200K+ a year, and if he moves up the ladder he can make millions. He’ll be fine.

    Women with money to settle down with …for all the wrongs reasons love is last So in case of a divorce they’ll be taken care of!! That goes for knocking up women with money too because now they see they can also sue for child support Smh!! A lot of these celebrities should be aware of that….??? never let a serial cheater knock you up!! Some chicks don’t realize they married a trick until it’s too late!! Wtf is spousal support??

  • FukkFolks2018

    CP is not your average WNBA player. She had (not sure if she still has one) a shoe deal with Adidas. An endorsement from Gatorade and had a job commentating at one time and pure was on I want to say the Olympics.

  • Kay Gee

    Is that how they pronounced it in the movie (my Black card is revoked, because I never saw this movie) because in REAL life it is called Downs Syndrome…

  • Trace da Ace

    I dont want to go to hell for laughing at this!!!

  • FukkFolks2018

    Thanks for this fact.

  • FukkFolks2018

    *Locks arms with you so you cant run*

  • Trace da Ace

    dammnnn…..amicable?? if it was so amicable….neither would have to pay spousal support, seems like they are both well off…or naw?

  • FukkFolks2018

    “You know…the term in REAL life is Downs Syndrome”

  • mona q

    Awww…dang…didn’t know they got divorced…I remember watching a special about them when she first had the baby…he probably was so insecure…he must also have a very good personality…

  • mona q

    SMDH…I was like what the hell is Downs Sinder

  • mona q

    Girl….I knew it was Downs Syndrome but thought it was something new…that I hadn’t heard of.

  • mona q

  • BlackMenHATEBlackWomen

    I never understood why she was with his ugly ass! I wonder if she’s lez. Lez/dl women in the spotlight tend to settle for any man to conform to societal standards. I can’t believe she actually had sex with that. If she is ghey, I hope she lives in her truth!

  • Dr. P

    my Grandmother says down sinder, and that’s what I say as well….in real life

  • free

    they’ve been together since college; they were spending each other’s coins.

  • free

  • Coy little wink

    Well the breadwinner usually must break bread in a divorce…in this case it was the woman

    Marriage is a contract to support until death folks….

  • Vonn

    Looks like he is missing a chromosome or two.

  • free

    if you put your fingers between his eyes, he’s not so bad. eyes too far apart.

  • FukkFolks2018

  • Anonymouse

    Split the cost of their daughter’s education and upbringing? How sway? She already had to give him $400,000 in the divorce settlement. She’s going to be giving him money for the rest of her life. They should’ve just stayed married.
