Andre Iguodala is in the middle of a nasty child support case with the mother of his 6-year-old daughter. His ex-girlfriend Clayanna Warthen is seeking $58,000 a month in child support for their daughter London, up from $16,000 a month. Apparently the increase is to pay for their genius daughter’s education.
Warthen supposedly is saying that Andre Iguodala is an absentee father who has only spent 9 hours with his daughter last year and did not even bother to call her on Christmas.
But the biggest announcement made by Warthen was that Iguodala does not want their six-year-old daughter following in the family business for fear that playing basketball at school will turn her into a lesbian.
It’s hard to know how credible Warthen’s claims are given that she is trying to make him look bad so he will pay extra money in child support.
Iguodala’s lawyers fired back saying Warthen is using him as an ATM and intends to use the money for a personal chef and $7,000 for 76ers floor seats. They also stated that the sum she is asking is a “prescription for a spoiled child.” What the lawyers did avoid addressing is the basketball-makes-you-into-a-lesbian allegation. I guess we’ll have to wait to see how that one plays out.
