We’re used to hearing about wives of professional ballers divorcing their husbands, but this time around in divorce court, somebody’s flipped the script. Yes, we have a husband filing for divorce on his basketball player wife.

We’re referring to WNBA superstar Candace Parker who has been served with divorce papers from her husband, Shelden Williams, a former NBA player. Williams is looking for spousal support from the 2016 Finals MVP, reports TMZ.

According to documents, Williams was a former Duke star who was the #5 overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. He played in the NBA for 6 seasons.

Williams and Parker were married back in 2008 — and have a 7-year-old daughter together.

 Williams – according to the divorce documents – says they separated back in August and are living apart. Now, he wants to officially end their 7-year marriage, citing irreconcilable differences. He’s asking for joint custody of their kid.

We mentioned it earlier in the story, but it’s truly worth noting that Williams — who reportedly made more than $12 MILLION during his NBA career — is demanding spousal support from Parker. He also wants her to pay his attorney’s fees.

Parker reportedly makes in the low 6-figures with the L.A. Sparks — but it’s a different story overseas, where reports say she hauls in more than $1 million per year. She also has major endorsements, including a deal with Adidas.
