Steve Nash's Ex-Wife

He's Banning Me From L.A. to Avoid Child Support

EXCLUSIVE

0524-steve-nash-wife-tmz-getty
Steve Nash is making a full-court press to block his ex-wife from moving from Phoenix to L.A. with their 3 kids so he can avoid paying child support ... this according to court docs filed by his ex.

Nash and his ex Alejandra are locked in a legal battle royale over where she's allowed to move.  Alejandra wants to relocate from Phoenix to L.A. ... so the kids can be closer to Steve.   But the b-baller has vigorously tried to block the move, which is curious because he famously chose the Lakers over the New York Knicks to be closer to the youngins.
 
Alejandra says Nash has told her he didn't want her to move out West because he might be traded or forced into retirement ... which would mean uprooting the family again.

But Alejandra says Nash is simply blowing smoke -- and that the REAL reason he wants her to stay put in PHX is because California courts are likely to impose huge child support obligations against him -- something the Phoenix courts have not done.

Alejandra claims Steve is not paying a cent in child support ... zip, zero, zilch ... and he doesn't want to blow a good thing.

Alejandra says Steve's admitted that living so far from the kids is tough on him and them ... and it would be better for everyone if they could spend more time together ... but his desire to save a few bucks on child support is trumping his obligation to his family.

For now ... a judge has issued a restraining order, prohibiting Alejandra from moving West until their trial, which is scheduled for next week.

This poor father of three divorced his wife after she carried thier child and at deliver he found out it was not his, it was a child of a different ethneticity. He pays out 5 million plus 30k a month plus other expenses. I do nt understand why that is not enough, she should have got nothing. I am curious as to who and what she was prior to Steve Nash, would she be worth millions on her own today if she never met him?? She is the purputraitor, she got millions and she wants more??? Is their a mother out their that would have troubles raising a family on a 30k a month check and five mil in the bank???? Disgusted!!!!!!

In the state of California, the amount of child support you have to pay depends on the money you make. So if your jobless you pay nothing if your a millionaire you pay thousands.

LA & California have nothing to do with their divorce, child support, etc. If the divorce was in Arizona, THAT jurisdiction controls the terms. California cannot "raise" a child support amount, although it could enforce the foreign state judgment.

What crap!! He's already paying a crap-load in child support! He knows that he only has a year or so left in the NBA and wants to retire in Phoenix. She just wants to live a high life-style in L.A. paid for completely by Nash. She hasn't done a thing to earn it and the kids are going to suffer.

this is exactly the type of gold digging wh0re Bill Burr is talking about. Steve already pays for almost everything. She got a lot of his money when they divorced. She hasnt earned anything but she still wants more. Disgusting

That judge is WRONG! His ex-wife poses no danger to Steve Nash.

This is the USA. You can love anywhere you want!

He likely gives the kids money for whatever they need, that is what child support is for. it is not so the mother can sit back and do nothing.
