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."

Shame on Steve? These women already get a ridiculous amount of money, and then simply demand more. They don't derseve a fortune just because they're pregnant. What they deserve is enough money to live comfortably. And when it comes to steve nash, i'm sure he does more than neccessary to make sure that happens for his daughters. In alot of these cases the children would be better off with the father, the wives are the ones doing this for the money. If he were totally devoid of his responsibilities i'd completely agree. But these women have no right to claim a fortune off of someone else. Does Kobe's wife need 100 million dollars? NO. Should she get a mansion and money to live comfortably to take care of the children? Of course.

I hope Steve wins because LA is no place to raise children safely anymore. Quality and standard of life is so important and having lived in Cali for 53 years know exactly what i am talking about. Welcome aboard Steve, get well soon. The Lakers are an absolute mess without you.

It looks as if this woman will be fighting in vain!!! Steve Nash does have the "right to object" to where his children will be raised. I can understand "why" he would want them to stay in Arizona away from the limelight. After his ex-wife had an affair and a child with one of his former teammates, the situation would be an "unnecessary" distraction for him. You would think this woman would prefer to lead a more "low-key" existence in Arizona for the sake of her children.
