According to The Blast, retired NBA star Kevin Garnett has a new child custody battle brewing.
In new legal documents, obtained by The Blast, a woman named Necat Akman asked the court to formally order Garnett to pay custody and child support for her young daughter.
Akman claims they had an existing, out-of-court child support agreement and Garnett is not fighting paternity.
However, she says Garnett is not keeping his end of the deal on their agreed-upon support in Los Angeles, CA.
On Friday, June 3, 2022, Akman filed for support, saying “(Garnett) and I have signed a voluntary declaration of parentage or paternity regarding the minor children.” She is asking a judge to force Garnett to “provide medical insurance for the minor child, contribute to add-on expenses incurred on behalf of the minor child, including but not limited to uninsured medical expenses, childcare costs relating to her employment, payment of preschool and private school tuition, and extracurricular activities.”
She is also asking a judge to pay into a college fund for the unnamed child.
Kevin, 46, married longtime girlfriend Brandi Padilla in 2004. The couple later welcomed two daughters.
Kevin and Brandi are pictured with one of their daughters in 2011.
On July 12, 2018, Brandi filed for divorce, asking for custody of their two children after she discovered his fling with Instagram model, Erica.
Kevin and Erica’s union produced a daughter, who may have been the reason for Kevin and Brandi’s messy divorce.
Brandi objected to the pre-nup agreement that she happily signed when they first got married. After filing for divorce, she called the pre-nup “unconscionable”.
Brandi asked the court for $46,000 a month in child support, another $146,000 in spousal support and $300,000 to cover her legal fees.
A judge did not agree, and Garnett was ordered to pay Brandi just $100,000 in child and spousal support, despite Garnett earning over $300 million In salary and bonuses at the time.
Unlike Brandi, Erica didn’t run to court for child support, and she appears to be receiving a much better deal than Brandi.
If you’re keeping count, Garnett is a girl dad to at least 4 daughters. See more pics of 3rd baby mama, Erica, below.
