Steve Nash

Lakers Star Involved In Bizarre Custody Fight

When L.A. Lakers star Steve Nash joined the team, he said one of the benefits was that he could be closer to his kids ... which is why his legal fight to keep his children out of California is bizarre.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Nash's ex-wife Alejandra wants to move the former couple's three children from AZ to L.A. We're told Nash has objected and is waging a legal war to prevent it from happening.

Our sources say Alejandra hired one of the biggest divorce lawyers in L.A., Lance Spiegel, to fight Nash in both AZ and California courts.

As for why Nash doesn't want his kids moving closer to him, we called his rep but haven't heard back.

Based on our research, one thing's for sure ... Nash will get socked for WAYYY more child support in CA than AZ.

We're told there is a gag order in place ... so no one can talk about the case.

Spiegel told TMZ, "I can't comment on the information you attribute to sources connected with TMZ."

He adds, "I confirm that I have been retained by Alejandra, that I cannot comment because of the reasons described and that Alejandra is not available for comment."

Ok, explain this to me - There are black people, white people, yellow people, brown people, people of mixed ethnicity, but why are there suddenly so many orange people? Has oompa loompa become a part of the human race? Can't people be happy being a real human color? How can I feel bad for her when she doesn't even look human?

His wife treated people very badly here in AZ, but with that said he dumped his wife the day she gave birth ( he signed the birth certificate so it's his baby) and about two days after that he was spotted with a 17 year old girl so for all of you talking that isht about his wife he's no saint.

It's because California courts don't give a poo about kids although they try to say they do. California is poopy in many respects...nice weather though but that's about it.

She's doing it for money and he's trying to block it to save money.

Not bad for a woman that was cheating on him with at least one of his teammates. Being a ho pays

It has nothing to do with child support. She's trying to be a celebrity and Nash will have none of it.- yes maybe being a basketball wife on that crappy tv show.

UIFSA dictates that where a matter has been filed in one state and is transfered to a different state. The law of the original state is controlling. Therefore, even if the Mr. Nash's ex is permitted to move the children to CA, AZ law would still apply with respect to child support. Therefore, perhaps there is a different reason for his desire to prevent the move. Maybe Nash is eyeing his retirement in a couple years and wants to live in AZ as opposed to CA. Allowing the move at this time would mean committing to staying in CA beyond his stint with the Lakers if he wants to be near his children.
