Golden State Warriors player Andre Iguodala had fans turning their heads in shock earlier this week when he reportedly claimed that he feared his daughter will become a lesbian if she plays basketball. But now, Iguodala has reportedly clarified his shocking comments about his young daughter’s sexuality.
As previously reported, Iguodala and his baby mama Clayanna Warthen are reportedly battling over the child support payments for their 6-year-old daughter, London. Iguodala already pays $16K a month, but Warthen is reportedly demanding that Iguodala nearly quadruple that amount and pay her $58K a month.
The feuding exes were in court this week and Warthen reportedly 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.
However, according to TMZ, Iguodala appeared in court again this week and a judge asked him about Warthen’s testimony. Iguodala reportedly responded by saying that he knows many WNBA players who are lesbians and he simply doesn’t want his daughter to endure the same struggles that they have. He added that he’d be more than happy to coach his daughter if she decided to follow in his footsteps.
But that wasn’t all that Iguodala talked about. Warthen’s lawyer reportedly asked Iguodala if he’d spent any time inside the Sherman Oaks, CA apartment where Warthen and his daughter reside. Iguodala responded that he wasn’t worried about his daughter because “he sees white people walking around, and in his experience that means it’s pretty safe.”
Luckily for Iguodala, the judge didn’t take him seriously and instead laughed at his joke.
