Steve Nash

My Ex-Wife Was SCHEMING

to Nail Me for Child Support

EXCLUSIVE

Steve Nash's attorney is grilling the NBA star's ex-wife like a cheeseburger ... accusing Alejandra of scheming behind Steve's back so she could trap him into paying child support, TMZ has learned. 

Alejandra Amarilla is currently on the stand in an Arizona courtroom in the former couple's nasty custody hearing ... and things are getting pretty intense.

Moments ago, Steve's lawyer hammered Alejandra in open court -- saying, "You saw the trade [from the Phoenix Suns to the Lakers] as a way to obtain a higher child support amount regardless of what was best for the kids, didn't you?"

Alejandra denied the allegation -- shooting back with a simple, "No."

Then, Nash's attorney produced an email that Alejandra supposedly sent to a 3rd party -- in which it appears Alejandra discusses a plot to trap Nash into paying child support.

The email reads -- "My position is we are moving to California because [our children's] father is there. I believe the school is a great fit for them. I can't buy a home unless we get child support. Plan is to move to CA. Wait 6 months then get court involved in child support."

As we previously reported, Alejandra is adamant she only wants to move to L.A. so the kids can spend more time with their father -- who plays for the Lakers and lives in Manhattan Beach.

Nash -- who forked over roughly $5 mil in the divorce settlement -- currently pays ZERO dollars in child support in Arizona ... but that figure could rise substantially if Alejandra is allowed to move to CA.

Her face says it all; she's on that paper chase.

I've always been a fan of Nash, even when he played for Dallas. Dude is genius for getting the restraining order to provent this gold digger from digging deeper.

He's smart, he knows he won't be a laker for long and he doesn't want to get trapped into paying for more surgery and botox.

He already gave her a $12 million settlement and he also pays all the expenses for his children. She cheated on him and now wants to bleed him dry because they have children. She says the $12M is for her and not the kids... How much more money does she need to raise kids she doesn't even foot the expenses? Greed, smh..

Men ought to support their children in every way possible. I saw a sign on a building the other day that read: "The best thing a father can do for his child is to love its mother." If he doesn't fully support his children, he will live to regret it, but by then so will the children.

Obviously she is moving to California because she loves her kids but loves that money even more. WTF did she do with the $5million he gave her already?

Does anyone else think it's strange that he is essentially PREVENTING his children from being closer to him? Is the money really more important than having his children in the same city with him?? I think HE'S the one with the issues.

What kind of a father doesn't pay child support? Esp. a very wealthy father. How is that allowed? I don't get it.

Dude makes millions per year and pays zero in Child Support? No respect. She should move as far away as possible. 5 million to her in the divorce. Big deal. He's a dad and makes millions. I wonder what he pays that's not reported.

A lump sum divorce settlement is not the same thing as child support. He is a FATHER. They are HIS KIDS. He should support them financially - from HIS wallet, not JUST from his wife's settlement. And buried in this argument is how he doesn't want them to live close to him! They're his kids!

What a piece of ****...He should pay child support for his ****ing kids...They're going to be able to read all of this when they're older and realize their father had no interest in being closer to them or providing for them...
