Lakers point guard Steve Nash probably won’t have the NBA playoffs to focus on for too much longer. The Lakers were blown out by 31 points in Friday’s game three match up with the San Antonio Spurs. Which helps clear some space for the other issue in his life, his ex-wife’s bid for child support. Steve and his ex-wife Alejandra Nash have been divorced for almost two years now however the child support issue is still ongoing. Per TMZ, Steve managed to find an Arizona judge that agreed with him that his ex-wife didn’t need child support. Alejandra received a hefty settlement in the divorce and Steve covers the bulk of the medical, school and nanny costs. Therefore he feels any extra money given to his ex would just go for frivolous things. Steve convinced the divorce judge — Alejandra doesn’t need child support because he made her a millionaire 5 times over in the divorce settlement.  On top of that, she pulls in more than $30k a month. For her part, Alejandra says Steve makes a million bucks more than her every month, and it’s unfair he’s not forced to use some of it for the benefit of their kids. Steve is saying he’s paying plenty — 90% of medical, school and extracurricular activities, and  82% of the nanny’s $2k a month salary. Now we understand why Alejandra was trying to move to LA. To get the kids closer and to be in the jurisdiction of courts that seem to be a little more pro mom. What’s up with all these athletes trying to shut down their ex-wives and kids mothers? Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, Deion Sanders… prenups can be your friend too ladies. Get a lawyer and negotiate.
