Derek Fisher gets alimony and child support payments reduced from $124K to $0!

by Angela Davis|@jerseygirlsport |@ladyadavis Derek Fisher is a uh.....hmmmm.... 'interesting' man. After a very successful career on the court playing for the Los Angeles Lakers, he went on to coach the NY Knicks. His personal life, however, was falling apart. He divorced his wife of ten years paying $109K monthly in spousal support and $15K/month in child support. Well, he's got that reduced to nothing! He says that because he's unemployed, he can no longer pay and shouldn't have to. Apparently a judge agreed:
from Fisher filed paperwork over the summer asking the judge who presided on his 2016 split from Candace to halt his ongoing $109,000 in monthly alimony and $15,000 a month in child support payments because he’s no longer working as a coach for the New York basketball franchise. A judge later signed off on the modification, according to court docs. Fisher had been paying Candace approximately $125,000 a month in alimony and child support for about a year before initiating the modification, according to court papers.”
So, he's done with payments as of July 1st.

In case you didn't know, Fisher is now dating former Basketball Wives star Gloria Govan. Is this fair? What do you think?
