'Basketball Wives' Star

Slam Dunks Divorce

With Estranged Husband

9/9/2012 12:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0909_kenya-bell-charlie-bell_gettyKenya Bell is technically no longer a basketball wife as the reality star's divorce was just finalized with former NBA star Charlie Bell ... but she will be taking a lot of NBA money with her.

If you recall, Kenya and Charlie were entangled in a bitter divorce battle over money. Charlie wanted Kenya to support him, claiming he makes pennies with no more NBA contract. Kenya wanted Charlie to give up a chunk of his seven-figure savings and pay child support.

After all the back and forth ... a judgment was filed on August 27. Here's how it breaks down:

Kids: Charlie has to shell out $1,000/month in child support, but they'll share custody of their two daughters. Neither party has to cough up spousal support.

Homes: Kenya scored the marital home in Michigan, along with the home bought for her parents. Charlie gets the condo in Vegas and the home he bought his parents.

Money: Kenya was awarded $780,000 cash from Charlie's savings ... leaving him with $656,000. She also gets half of the $670,000 from another account.

Here's where Kenya wins big: she gets HALF OF EVERYTHING from the following: Charlie's NBA 401k plan, his NBA retirement plan, his NBA pension, NBA welfare plan and NBA supplement benefit plan.

Charlie gets ZILCH from Kenya's "Basketball Wives" money.

Fun Fact -- Kenya was arrested in 2011 for allegedly breaking into a home and attacking Charlie with a box cutter. She later pled guilty. He later filed for divorce.

What this lady and what that evil biatch Kobe is married to are doing is nothing more than legalized prostitution. I have more respect for that ho Elliott Spitzer was with than I do for these ghetto women these ballers hook up with.

"Attacking him with a box cutter"? That is attempted murder. This ho should be in prison, not counting this bone headed b-ballers $$$$.

FIRST TIME COMMENTING - MEN READ!!!!!    

I HAVE NEVER COMMENTED ON TMZ UNTIL READING THIS ARTICLE- I AM COMMENTING TODAY BECAUSE THIS ARTICLE JUST MADE ME HATE A BIG MAJORITY OF WOMEN. THE FACT THAT A WOMAN CAN DO NOTHING BUT SPREAD HER LEGS - AND THEN TAKE HALF A MAN'S MONEY IS ENOUGH TO PUT A BOUNTY ON THEM ALL. ATTN: WOMEN - YOU ARE WHY I WILL NEVER WASTE MONEY, TRY TO IMPRESS, AND EVERY MARRY WITHOUT A PRE-NUP- BECAUSE OF SOME OF YOUR FELLOW FEMALES. GUYS- THIS WOMAN PLAYED HIM LIKE A USED GUITAR-TOOK HIM FOR A RIDE - TRIED TO SLASH HIM- SHE MAKES GREEN CARD TROLLIPS LOOK GOOD- MEN - WE NEED TO ALL START DOING LESS FOR ALL WOMEN UNTIL THEIR VALUE IS REDUCED TO COMMODITY LEVEL- I AM BEGINNING TO UNDERSTAND WHY MAYBE THE MUSLIMS HAVE IT RIGHT.............

When I was in the Air Force the wife of a Colonel I worded for cheated and divorced him. She gets half of his retirement check for the rest of his life even if she remarries. I would have to kill her. Can you imagine her new man driving a car you are paying for and perhaps living in your old home.?!

Be You    

Kenya, you deserve your earnings! Relationships are a business. Love can not be the only component. We can only assume they worst, cause we tend to blame women for everything. We only know what's reported, not what actually happened. I am shocked more women are not appalled by the comments on this page toward another women.

Nothing says 'dumb ass' like a gaggle of uneducated piles of black trash fronting like ANYTHING they have to say matters in a world of bright, caring people. Hasn't anyone told these idiots the world is laughing at their stupidity and pointing at them as examples of evolution in reverse?
