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.
