Steve Nash's Ex-Wife

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

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Child support...you owe it to your kids! If he's not paying then he is a poor excuse for a father!! Move to LA...they will garnish it from his check! :)

That skank got pregnant by another one of Steve's teammates, lead him to believe it was his, until the delivery and there was no denying that it wasn't Steve's child. She's a money hungry wh0re!

What kind of dad goes to court to keep his kids from moving closer to him? I don't care about the situation of the divorce or why she wants to move to LA; any man that is worth anything as a father should want his kids closer to him. I get a court trying to keep a woman from moving the kids "away" from the dad but not "toward" him.

Wow. He sounds like my ex-husband. He quit his job them file a modification to suspend support payments because "he's currently unemployed". Then on top of that, he wanted to claim our son on his taxes and when I told him no, he filed a contempt of court...for custody. He's currently driving on a suspended license (the courts did that). Ah love...it SUCKS!

Baby Matteo needs Maury to do DNA test. I looked at JasonRichardson's daughter & it's to close to call by looking. Poor kids are the only ones who suffer in the end.

What this article fails to mention is that he's already paying for 90% of his kids' health insurance, school tuition, and the nanny's salary. It's also speculated that the only reason she wants to move to LA is for reality show opportunities. I don't know, but I'm Team Nash on this one.

Why aren't you paying child support every month now? They are your kids, under 18 right? Are they living at your house half the time? Why not? If you are not paying child support they should be. Go give your kids a hug, thank God they are healthy and give your ex a cheque.
