Steve Nash Is Getting Divorced

Nash made the announcement shortly after the birth of his son. The NY Daily News has the details: “Hours after the birth of his third child with wife, Alejandra Amarilla, the Phoenix Suns point guard announced the couple is divorcing. ‘I am very thankful and excited that we have a new son, Matteo Nash,’ the new dad said in a statement to Life and Style magazine on Friday. ‘Alejandra and the baby are doing fine. But this is a bittersweet moment for my wife and I; after five years, we are now in the process of dissolving our marriage.’ The 36-year-old Canadian added that he and his wife have been living separately for several months but are committed to raising their kids ‘in the most positive, nurturing way possible.’”

    Very odd timing. I read this earlier and had truly bad thoughts (not his DNA etc) but it’s not really newsworthy. Don’t know why he decided to put this news out there.

    Not my business at all. Why does anyone care about this?

    It would be really funny if the baby was light skinned. Amare’s parting gift.

  • AT33

    Damn.. I hope he had her sign a prenup!! Still the last 5 years is when he made the most money as a pro. There goes half of that 60Mio. contract he signed in 05.


    Nashty is a swinger. jk

  • T-Money

    I’m sorry but the first thing that popped in my mind was that the baby is not his… sketchy.

  • http://theurbangriot.com The Nupe

    I’m just glad that they are going to focus on the kids and that he brought it out to the media rather than some ‘major’ breaking story that someone ‘uncovers’. Odd timing to announce a divorce though, at least things were going pretty well 9 months ago.

  • Jake

    He can do better.She must be a devil woman,cause I don’t get the feeling Steve Nash is a hard man to get along with unless he puts on a very good front.

  • Javy

    You guys are HORRIBLE. Damn. Marriage is more than money. Things didn’t work out, why’s it always have to be about money. This is a pretty bad time in this family’s life. Too bad celebrities and athletes can’t have personal space to go thru this kinda stuff without it being news.

    “raising their kids ‘in the most positive, nurturing way possible’” ?? Obviously not if they’re getting divorced. . . .

    Matteo? that’s a Tottenham player some years ago, right?

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    I have to laugh at allen and ryan. When lorenzen wright died, ppl made all kinds of speculations, and I dont believe either of you called for a comments moratorium. But steve gets divorced, and its a time for silent reverence???

  • http://www.double-technical.blogspot.com Zee!

    Wow, so she’s cool to have kids with, but not to stay with? Ahh the power of good punanni.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Speculating that Nash’s wife was out for his money, or that his baby was really Amare’s, or the required Gloria James joke are ridiculous reactions. Marriage is a big deal and the failure of a marriage isn’t the time to see who has the best online joke.
    The posts on Lorensen Wright were respectful from what I saw, which is why the comparison fails.
    Failing marriages aren’t funny, at least not to me. Those are children whose lives are forever changed, and some would argue damaged.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    Allen, I see your point, but you must realize the audience here. This IS slamonline,, full of every type of joker, hater, lover, whatever there is. And while I can respect your view on marriage, half(more?) of all marriages end in divorce, so this is actually very normal. The timing seems odd to me, but obviously I dont know what happened between steve and his wife. And ppl were speculting lorenzen was involved in gangs, drugs, etc without knowing much. Ppl cant speculate on why steve is getting divorced? Sure, the stuff about how it might be amares is lame, but what do u expect?

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    No one is saying anything about the kids. And no one is saying anything to steve directly, so wheres the harm. Ppl on here talk all kinds of craziness about players, that just goes with the territory. Every day kobe, lebron, dwight, etc get called all kinds of names and talked about in the worst ways, ive never seen you condemn that. What makes steves divorce special? Ppl made jokes when antoine walker was tied up at gunpoint in a home invasion. Ppl still makes jokes about when pierce was stabbed. Ppl still make jokes about kobe alledgedly r@ping a woman. Whats makes divorce so much holier than everything else?

  • The Philosopher

    This can have a lot of different angles on it. One of my angles is this;
    Steve Nash did not want to have this baby. She had the baby, anyway.
    Nash wanted to do the right thing and be an upstanding husband and father, and see his wife through the pregnancy. Still has a little resentment, maybe. From what I gather, Nash exacted divorce literature onto his wife.
    Of course, I may be wrong.
    A man will leave his wife behind that kind of scenario.
    Who knows??
    I just hope it works out for everyone involved. Especially the children.

  • http://www.nba.com That Dude

    cosign Tarzan Cooper. Get off ya high horse Allen, Cheryl and Ryan! These comments have been very tame compared to the general SLAM climate. No ones really been very disrespectful.

    I thought he was getting a divorce from his MVP’s, the rightful owners wanted them back. BOOK IT!!

  • Chi-Town Stand Up

    Speaking as a married man of 5 years with 3 kids myself I just have to be brutally honest and say that I’ve lost a huge amount of respect for Steve Nash! Although I don’t believe in divorce because I choose to not live my life forever in Sin, I strongly disagree with him making this into some type of media spectacle. To announce that you’re getting divorced not even a full 24 hours after your wife has given birth is classless and it probably says more about him than it does his wife! Watching your child be born is the greatest feeling and sensation on Earth and nothing can compare, not even millions of dollars! So how can any man put his family through this when even if they had already discussed divorce theirs a better way to go about it! I’m sure the judicial system will make sure that she will get a nice chunk of change./ Mark 10:11-12 [Jesus] answered, “Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery.” Wake up world and realize that God does not look favorably against Divorce! How can you repent for something that you live in forever? Money can’t buy us everything, and I hope Steve at least seeks out some type of spiritual guidance before going through with this!

  • giogolo

    Simple. the baby is not his.


    LMAO at some of the comments.

  • rikson

    @Chi-Town: Man get outta here, its not medieval anymore! Live in Sin when divorced..?! Plus I think its better to talk to the media now, so the child wont be affected! “atching your child be born is the greatest feeling and sensation on Earth and nothing can compare, not even millions of dollars!” -> One question: You ever had millions..?!

    “From what I gather, Nash exacted divorce literature onto his wife.”
    What the hell is that sentence trying to say?
    STOP using online translators before you post.

    @Chi-Town Stand Up GTFO, since when has marriage only been a christian thing so why would it be a sin to get divorced? And according to your belief everybody’s does sin, so what’s the difference in that regard? Man go back to the 1400s.
