So sad. As part of their divorce settlement, former NBA star Derek Fisher and his ex-wife, Candace, have reportedly decided to destroy the embryos they had frozen during their 10-year marriage. Get all the details here!
Former NBA star Derek Fisher, 41, and his ex-wife, Candace, were just faced with a difficult decision, as a new report claims they chose to destroy the embryos they had frozen during their marriage.
Court documents obtained by TMZ Sports allegedly show Derek and Candace both “signed documents agreeing to destroy the embryos that were on ice at a California reproductive center.” It’s very controversial because there has always been a big debate about when life actually begins, but Derek and Candace were reportedly on the same page about destroying the unborn babies.
Unfortunately, not everyone sees eye-to-eye on the matter. In fact, Modern Family star Sofia Vergara and her ex-fiance, Nick Loeb, are still in the midst of a legal battle over the fate of their frozen embryos, as HollywoodLife.com previously reported.
Along with destroying their embryos, the divorce settlement also states that Derek will give Candace $109,000 a month in spousal support. Furthermore, he’ll reportedly pay her $15k per month in child support for their 9-year-old twin sons. In total, she’ll receive $124,000 a month, which nearly equals $1.5 million a year!
Their divorce was marked official as of May 24, a judge decided, which finally puts an end to their 10-year marriage. Currently, Derek is reportedly dating Basketball Wives LA star Gloria Govan.
