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.

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.

Erica routinely updates her Instagram page with photos of her designer handbags and shoes. Kevin seems to be in their daughter's life. The child, named Kamila Garnett, has her own Instagram page.

If you're keeping count, Garnett is a girl dad to at least 4 daughters. See more pics of 3rd baby mama, Erica, below.

Socialite and reality TV star La La Anthony stopped by the Good Morning America studios in NYC's Times Square today to promote her new relationship book, "The Love Playbook". La La is uniquely qualified to dispense relationship advice by virtue of the fact that she is still married to one of the NBA's most prolific womanizers. If you're purchasing the book expecting La La to spill the details on Carmelo Anthony's lecherous behavior with other women, you will be sorely disappointed.

But La La does touch on that embarrassing Honey Nut Cheerios incident.

Doc Rivers Son Defends Him On Twitter

The sports world is buzzing today about the dismantling of the NBA's Boston Celtics. The team's stars Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce were traded to the Brooklyn Nets, while their coach Doc Rivers is heading to the Los Angeles Clippers.

ESPN's Bill Simmons took Rivers' departure unusually hard during a mini meltdown on ESPN's live coverage of the NBA draft.

"I would like to call him a idiot but I'm too classy for that, said Rivers, responding to Simmons' comment that Rivers "quit" on the Celtics.

The last time I checked, this was still a free country where a coach has the freedom to accept a $21 million contract to take his talents to another team.

Carmelo Anthony high tech mics

NY Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony had no idea his boss was spying on him by deploying high-tech, sensitive microphones to eavesdrop on his conversations.

NBA League sources confirmed to the New York Post that Knicks owner James Dolan ordered two technicians to hold high-tech, sensitive microphones at opposite ends of the Madison Square Garden court to record all conversations by Anthony and the other players around him.

Dolan took action in the wake of Anthony's one-game suspension following a verbal altercation between Anthony and the Boston Celtics' star Kevin Garnett that spilled off the court last week.
