Ex-NBA big man Shelden Williams is filing for divorce from his wife, reigning WNBA Finals MVP, Candace Parker.

According to the court documents obtained by TMZ, Williams filed for joint custody of their 7-year-old daughter and is seeking spousal support.

Last month, Parker, 30, led the L.A. Sparks to a WNBA championship, which she dedicated to her college coach and mentor, the late Pat Summitt.

According to the divorce docs, Williams says the two 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.


But get this … 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 attorneys fees.
