What’s love got to do with it? Not a damn thing if Raymond Felton has anything to say about it. The NY Knicks guard asked a New York judge to dismiss his divorce case and have it moved to North Carolina where the prenup he has with is wife Ariane can be enforced. Moving the Raymond and Ariane Felton to North Carolina means he wouldn’t have to pay alimony.
The couple has only been married for 19 months, and according to the prenup, if he cheats, she is entitled to some money. Ariane, who filed for divorce last month, claims Felton did cheat and she is requesting “maintenance” in the form of funds to cover her last two years of law school at Fordham University.
According to the NY Daily News:
That agreement requires the couple to submit to arbitration in North Carolina, Felton’s home state, to end their 19-month marriage. Ariane Felton would get no alimony under the prenuptial.
However, the prenuptial also says arbitration is off if Felton physically abused or cheated on his wife and Ariane Felton is contending that her husband has had multiple affairs.
If a judge agrees, the prenup is broken and Ariane Felton can battle out a financial settlement in New York. Ariane, a Cornell graduate and student at Fordham Law School, has suggested that Felton, who is in the middle of a three-year, $10 million contract, should pay for her law school tuition.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kaplan is due to meet with the parties on April 21
Felton was arrested last month on weapons charges after his wife brought his unregistered semi-automatic handgun to the police station.
Wow!! This just crazy –and sadly, typical. Athletes marrying women they have no intention of being faithful to and women marrying pro-athletes without seemingly vetting them first. After 19 months it seems she should get something if he violated the terms of the prenup, but if she purposely brought the gun to the police to get him in trouble then I don’t know about “maintenance”.
This is going to be ugly.
