Damian Lillard has been making headlines for more than just his blockbuster trade to the Milwaukee Bucks.
Regrettably, the seven-time All-Star’s personal life has also come under scrutiny following reports of his divorce filing from his soon-to-be ex-wife, Kay’La Lillard.
While the timing might appear coincidental, it’s noteworthy that Lillard chose to file for divorce shortly after confirming his move to Milwaukee. Speculation suggests that the couple had been separated for months, and it just so happened that Dame decided to make it official as he relocates to another city.
Reports indicate that he is attempting to prevent his ex from using his last name.
Moreover, Lillard has found creative inspiration in the personal drama. In a song released at the end of the previous month, he alluded to his separation.
I said vows just to watch it ended abruptly
Let some people in, and now these niggas disgust me
I learned that a wolf could sometimes resemble a husky
Swear that they your dog, then they sell you shorter then Mugsy
Throughout this challenging period, the 33-year-old has maintained a low profile, and neither he nor Kay’La have publicly disclosed the reasons behind their split.
Court records merely mention “irreconcilable differences” as the grounds for their divorce, leaving the public in the dark regarding the specifics of their decision.
Undoubtedly, Damian Lillard is eagerly anticipating a fresh beginning and a genuine opportunity to contend for an NBA Championship.
