‘Basketball Wives’ Star Tami Roman Acquires $800K In Child Support Lawsuit Against Kenny Anderson
“Basketball Wives” star Tami Roman has just struck an $800,000 goldmine after battling a child support lawsuit against her ex-husband, NBA star Kenny Anderson. The lawsuit almost lasted for nine years. Roman filed a lawsuit in New Jersey in 2005, claiming that Anderson had stopped paying the court-ordered $8,500/month in child support for their two daughters- totaling $800,000 in missed payments.
According to reports, the two recently settled the case out of court. Roman received a portion of the monies due to her and will receive the remaining payments incrementally through Anderson’s NBA retirement fund. All warrants issued against Anderson for his unpaid child support were dropped. Sources close to Roman said that she is happy Anderson is becoming more involved with their two daughters and is ready to move on from this chapter in her life.
Roman revealed that she and her two daughters acquired government assistance to survive following the divorce from Anderson. The couple had a prenup, so Roman was left without any financial support. Roman said Anderson had two children with his mistress during their six year marriage. Prior to landing a spot on “Basketball Wives,” Roman worked for a finance firm, which enabled her to financially support her two children.
