Steve Nash Wants His Kids Far Away So He Doesn't Have To Pay More Child Support

Los Angeles Lakers guard likes to be close to his kids, just not in the same state with him, especially if it means he will have to pay more child support to be near them. In a move that looks really a-holey, TMZ is reporting that Nash is trying to block his ex-wife from moving from Arizona to California because Steve would have to pay more child support if she did. Umm, so all that stuff about wanting to be close to his kids? I guess that is true only if it also means he does not have to pay more money to be close to them. The guy makes millions. He does not want to spend some of that to have his kids where he could see them everyday if he wanted? Apparently not because he is spending a ton of money to make sure they don't move any closer.

Still interested in all those rumors regarding the last baby not being his. Any one know any info? TMZ mentioned the whole custody battle has a gag order attached that made me curious in it again.

Amber said...

That's an assumption. There's a gag order on this case. Also, let's not paint his ex out to be a victim. She was F'ing his teammate Jason Richardson, which resulted in Jason being traded to Orlando and a third baby that wasn't Nash's.

I hate parents that nickel and dime their kids. Especially when they have the money to support them. Shady Shady Shady.

He's an ass.

Laura said...

Those kiddos are super cute.

Amber said...

@kat - Nope

Pharcyde said...

@Amber Im with you on this one. I dont think he is trying to be shady with his kids I think he just does not want to deal with his ex.

I have read that when his ex gave birth to their third child, it was quite obvious that the child did not resemble him at all. He felt that she had been cheating on him but the birth just confirmed it.

So put yourself in his shoes, you are there for the birth of your child, something that should be a memorable event but it ends up being memorable in a negative way for you. You love the child but hate the way they were brought into this world.

Sounds like a Lifetime movie...

Alma said...

I think he is making the ex look like a victim by being such a jerk. Not saying she is but he is a crappy dad. Maybe his kids ard better off without him around. I mean ffs, they have money so a nanny can do pick ups and drop offs.

nancer said...

how do you keep someone from moving to another state? i know you can if they're TAKING your kids farther away, but moving closer?? i don't see how he can do that.

portlandjewel said...

I was just going to say the same thing. Also, who cares if he doesn't want to deal with his ex. Most single parents don't but they don't get to chose after the fact. They should be more careful before the fact and be a little more careful about who they marry and/or make babies with.

The Guy sounds like he needs some space right now.......

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@amber, heard all of that but was wondering if everyone still thinks its true. The one pic I did see of the baby the baby was pretty damned light skinned aka same skin tone as the rest of his kids but haven't seen any recent pics.

Amber said...

This entire post is speculation. From what I've been told by NBA media-types, Nash is a great guy. Let's not crucify him without facts.

Amber said...

@Onyx, I haven't seen any recent pics, either. However, my friend has had two mixed babies and both of them were light when they were born and got darker over time.

luckydog said...

Not a good guy....I know firsthand that he's super sketchy with the ladies.

Amber said...

I wonder if she wants to move so she can get on Basketball Wives or Real Housewives or something.

Cee Kay said...

No "great guy" does what he's doing. He needs to just suck it up and deal with his life. And his kids.

MISCH said...

What an ass..

lilivonshtupp said...

Finally everyone is starting to realize what an asshole he is!

His wife didn't cheat on him with Jason Richardson (Steve & Jason are still friends), the baby most certainly is his (she had to release a photo to prove it when he easily could have confirmed it himself), and he left her for some 20-year old college student.

By the way, he supposedly went to the Lakers to stay close to his kids, but he lives in NY during the summer time. You know, the time his daughters are most available.

Do you really think he would pay child support for a kid that isn't his? The guy is sleaze, pretending to be "one of the good ones".

Amy said...

There's supposed to be a gag order, and TMZ already is just plain shitty and all over the place in terms of its reporting. I truly can't stand how TMZ's editorial staff just runs allegations in custody battles or divorce cases because really it's just one side totally trying to smear the other, feeding TMZ who knows what kind of shit. I definitely wouldn't take especially this kind of thing from TMZ as anything near the truth of what's really going on.

EmEyeKay said...

I'm going to cross my fingers that this isn't true and that he's not a jerk. Little Stevie Nash* is my favorite NBA player.

*My own nickname. I don't remember how it came to be.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@lili, I guess that's what I was getting at. That Jason Richardson rumor was everywhere but my cousin was dating someone on the suns when this whole thing went down and the only info I got was Steve had realllllly young gf immediately following the divorce. I'm thinking he started all those rumors before people could figure him out.

@amy completely agree w you on the tmz front, I submit complaints on their one sided reporting to them from time to time.

alexis said...

Steve Nash is well known where I'm from (his hometown) to be an awesome dude. Does an incredible amount for charity. Tips 100% everywhere he goes (I know because i used to serve him) and he wasn't sleazy at all. No idea what the story is on his custody case but his is absolutely beloved in Canada.

lilivonshtupp said...

@alexis You are right about the charity, and I do belive it's genuine, so it's unfair of me to call him a sleaze. And while he did cheat on his wife (a lot), he is an NBA player and sadly that comes with the territory. Anyone involved with a professional athlete should expect that. But his wife was called a whore by tons of people, to the point where she felt she had to release a picture of her son to prove paternity, and he stayed silent. Couldn't be bothered to speak up. The mother of his children is being called a whore & he was too busy shtupping some co-ed to say "no, he's my son." Why, because then maybe some of the heat will go his way?

Great player though! Fun to watch!

hothotheat said...

He posted a pic on Twitter (I follow him) of the baby that supposedly wasn't his. That kid looks just like him now - I think he's about two years old. Anyway, Alejandra WAS cheating with Richardson ,thats what got him traded.

I've been a Nash fan since his Dallas days and while I think he's just like all the other bball players when it comes to groupies, I think he's a genuinely great guy - he did a ton of charity stuff while he played for Dallas.

jax said...

Alexis- you need to ask a few more people then. He isn't "beloved" in Vancouver. Trevor Linden is beloved.
Steve Nash is just a local boy who became famous and owns a bunch of overpriced Sports Clubs.

And yes I am in Vancouver.

sparky said...

Alexis - Nash is from Victoria and he is beloved in Victoria.

When we lived in Victoria, we lived very close to his parents and would sporatically see Steve, he was alway really nice, had time to chat with my kids who were huge fans. His wife, well she was a piece of work, she expected special treatment because she was Steve Nash's wife.

Fek said...

To his credit I hate it when women use child support to support their lifestyle. It's not that he doesn't want to support his kids, he just doesn't want to suppose his ex and her new boyfriend.

January Girl said...

@Amber so we shouldn't jump to conclusions and judge Nash, but you can say his wife is only doing it to be on Basketball Wives? Sounds fair.

Amber said...

@January - I said "I wonder if", but hey, it's totally cool to put words in my mouth even though they're right there in plain text.

TalksTooMuch said...

I just can't believe that about Steve Nash. I am a huge fan but didn't even know he was divorcing. I remember back in the day, the first time he won MVP, his wife was sitting in the audience with the babies wearing onesies that said "My Daddy is an MVP". That's so sad for the whole family. And he is VERY beloved in Victoria.

digal704 said...

Unless you are actually Steve Nash I think you are being pretty asinine to make that comment. The fact that he and his ex have a gag order on this makes me give them both big ups for being sensitive their children!

megan00m said...

He was a really good guy while in az and got royally f-ed over by his now ex wife. Rumours around town about her going out wigh his team mate. He said goodstuff about her all the time, then shes pregnant, hes on news saying so excited, baby born....nothing...then divorced quick and teammate traded...nash is a team player, not a glory boy and hard worker...phx gave his ex allbthat, la? Omg say hi to next basketball wives cast member. Nash is a little too nice, too private, too canadian for that bs. For like onnce I totally think good job professional athlete!
