Here's The Tea On NBA Legend Kevin Garnett And Wife Heading For Divorce After 14 Years of Marriage

Another one bites the dust…

The wife of Retired NBA player Kevin Garnett is forcing him to face the music as she just filed for divorce after 14 years of marriage and setting up for a possible ugly child custody battle.

Brandi Padilla, was a longtime girlfriend of KG before they tied the know in a July 2004 private ceremony held in California. The former Boston Celtics and the Minnesota Timberwolves star even skipped competing in the Olympic Games in Athens for the nupitals.

Garnett retired from the NBA in 2016 after 21 seasons, an MVP award, and a championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008.

According to The Blast and TMZ, Padilla filed for divorce Thursday in Los Angeles and is petitioning for physical custody of both of their daughters, (10-year-old Kapri and 5-year-old Kavalli), while allowing Garnett visitation rights. 


Her petition also states Padilla would be sharing legal custody of the two young children. Odds are, this will be an issue down the line.



In the documents, the date of separation is listed at “to be determined” but they cite the reason as “irreconcilable differences.” Padilla is also seeking spousal support while in the same vein terminating Garnett’s ability to collect support checks from her. 

This news must come as a shock after Garnett’s sister Ashley Phelps was apprehended recently by authorities for some extreme alleged activities. 

Last month, Ashely Danyelle Phelps attempted to hold up three check cashing stores in South Carolina. She was formally charged with 5 different counts and is currently being held without bail at the Greenville County Detention Center

Garnett and his sister no longer speak after this incident, although the pair used to be close. 


Sad news that Brandi Padilla and Kevin Garnett’s marriage is coming to an end. As mentioned, the pair dated for several years before tying the knot. 


The couple seemed solid from the outside looking in…but it looks like this relationship has run its course.

Here’s to hoping they can work out their “irreconcilable differences”, but if they can’t we wish nothing but happiness for the two of them and their children in this time. 


As this story develops we’ll keep you updated on the important details and everything else you need to know. Stay tuned!
