Kenya Bell is officially divorced from her NBA husband, but don’t expect this Basketball Wives to face Tami Roman-like post-marriage financial problems. Yes, Kenya’s got her share of his money…and she gets to keep her VH1 earnings, too.
Kenya Bell is technically no longer a basketball wife as the reality star’s divorce was just finalized with former NBA star Charlie Bell … but she will be taking a lot of NBA money with her.
If you recall, Kenya and Charlie were entangled in a bitter divorce battle over money. Charlie wanted Kenya to support him, claiming he makes pennies with no more NBA contract. Kenya wanted Charlie to give up a chunk of his seven-figure savings and pay child support.
After all the back and forth … a judgment was filed on August 27. Here’s how it breaks down:
Kids: Charlie has to shell out $1,000/month in child support, but they’ll share custody of their two daughters. Neither party has to cough up spousal support.
Homes: Kenya scored the marital home in Michigan, along with the home bought for her parents. Charlie gets the condo in Vegas and the home he bought his parents.
Money: Kenya was awarded $780,000 cash from Charlie’s savings … leaving him with $656,000. She also gets half of the $670,000 from another account.
Here’s where Kenya wins big: she gets HALF OF EVERYTHING from the following: Charlie’s NBA 401k plan, his NBA retirement plan, his NBA pension, NBA welfare plan and NBA supplement benefit plan.
Charlie gets ZILCH from Kenya’s “Basketball Wives” money.
Fun Fact — Kenya was arrested in 2011 for allegedly breaking into a home and attacking Charlie with a box cutter. She later pled guilty. He later filed for divorce.
