Golden State Warriors star and reigning NBA Finals MVP Andre Iguodala is playing some of the best basketball of his career.
But eventually the 31-year-old will approach the twilight of his career and would probably like nothing more than to see his daughter continue his basketball tradition, right? Well, not quite, according to his baby mama.
TMZ Sports is reporting that the mother of Iguodala's six-year-old daughter, London, is alleging that the Warriors forward doesn't want her to take up basketball out of fear that she'll become a lesbian. Wait...what?
The celebrity sports news website claims that her shocking allegation was part of Clayanna Warthen's testimony Monday in court during a child support hearing. She reportedly said Iguodala was worried that London might "turn into a lesbian" by playing basketball. Really?
The shocking claim was part of a package in which Warthen is seeking $58,000 a month in child support from Iguodala, an increase from the $16,000 she's currently receiving monthly from the NBA star. Her reasoning for the steep increase request? TMZ reports that Warthen says their daughter has a 151 IQ, already reading Harry Potter books at just six. She added that she needs the extra money to pay her daughter's tuition and that Iguodala saw her daughter for a total of nine hours last year, not even calling her on Christmas, as reported by TMZ.
In response, Iguodala's attorney claimed that this is nothing but a money grab attempt on Warthen's part and that the real reason she wants the extra money is for a personal chef and floor seats at Philadelphia 76ers games, which run $7,000 per season. That's the team that Iguodala started his NBA career with. His lawyer adds that Warthen's demands are a "prescription for spoiled children."
