NBA star Andre Iguodala is deeply embroiled in a child support battle with his baby mama Clayanna Warthen over their 6-year-old daughter, London. And while that might not seem out of the ordinary for a celebrity athlete, what is shocking about the case is that Warthen recently claimed that Iguodala claims he doesn’t want their daughter to follow in his footsteps because he fears it will turn her into a lesbian.
According to TMZ, during a court appearance on Monday, Warthen spoke about the Golden State Warrior’s presence in their daughter’s life and she testified that Iguodala doesn’t want London to get involved with her school’s basketball team because he doesn’t want his little girl to be turned gay.
Warthen and Iguodala are reportedly battling over the child support payments for London. Iguodala already pays $16K a month, but Warthen is reportedly demanding that Iguodala nearly quadruple that amount and pay her $58K a month, claiming that he barely saw their daughter last year and that he isn’t even paying the full price of London’s school tuition.
However, Iguodala’s lawyer claims that Warthen just wants to live lavishly off of his client’s fortune and enjoy things such as a private chef and floorside seats at 76ers games.
Clearly, this is one messy custody battle and if Warthen’s testimony is true, then Iguodala’s got some other issues to deal with besides his baby mama’s questionable child support demands because last time we checked, the sport someone plays has nothing to do with their sexuality.
